Smartest Spring Suits for Women
Most Striking Styles of the Season -
To quote a recent review which makes a very vivid picture
of the very garments we are showing in this store right now :
"Coats vary from hip to almost full length. Sashes easily
outnumber belts; worsted embroidery and silk embroidery ef
fects are numerous. Buttons are used very effectively in trims
and many models are shown with collars extremely large and
unusual in cut. Skirts are irregular, but not extremis for
example, a garment which crosses surplicewise, makes the
skirt section dip at that side, or a side gore may forget to stop
at the edge and continue over, only to be snipped off in an
odd, but attractive manner somewhat below."
And so it continues, right through the sports styles, the new
Wool Jersey Suits, etc. new, NEW, NEW, following faster
and faster each step we take. This year's earliest arrivals are
fascinatingly interesting. COME AND SEE THEM.

The Wonderful Success of the New Specialty Shop
For Misses and Small Women
Has Been a Revelation Even to Us
Even while we have endeavored, the success that
has been meted out to us, by exercising extreme care
in the selection of every garment brought here and
seeing that every woman was shown just the type of
garment best suited to her we were simply amazed
at the response. At this writing, although the new
Specialty Shop for Misses and Small Women is but
three or four days old, it has already thoroughly es
Now Another Unusual Service Feature
We Are Specializing on Suits at $25.00
These are the strictly tailored models, severe but
charming in their lines and always excellent in style, then
there are the more extreme models with the barrel pockets,
the slipper pockets and the touches of bright and fascinat
ing colors here and there that add materially to their at
tractiveness. New arrivals in Poiret Twill, French Serge
and Tricotine lend their influence to make of this an unu
sually attractive display.
