Hoping for better weather for the coming week we shall continue the sale for another six tlays, keeping our FIVE great leaders at the same prices as quoted last week, 7c, 14c. 16c, 20c and 25c; above posi tively cannot be matched elsewhere. The regular lines of course remain unchanged; the same cut prices of last week continuing, and we confidently assert that they are the best and cheap est line of Lace Mitts ever put on this market and buyers of last week will no doubt add still farther to the supplies already purchased. To make the sale especially interest ing, we shall place on sale this week 3 lots of 25c lisle gloves at only 8c per pair. There are plain blacks, also colored glov...
