Hi SUNDAY MORNING X- OAKLAND TRIBUNE. SEPTEMBER 13, 1908 53v .Good News for Those - Who Need Furniture - The big furniture warehouse of W. X " Culllgan at Twenty-second and Grove streets will be the mecca for the thrifty furniture buyers of Alameda" county for the next ten days. The Board of Trade has authorized Mr. Culllgan to place on sale at prices never before known the entire stock of his big warehouse, and in addition five full carloads of furniture bargains that will be on display on the floor tomorrow, or as soon as space rtA to accommodate it. Mr. Culligan must satisfy a claim of $10,500 which his creditors hold against him, and to produce this sum the prices will be cut on this great quantity of furniture and floor coverings to one-half the factory cost. The opportunity that is herewith presented is without a parallel in the history of merchandising in Alameda county. While it is extremely disastrous to the Board of Trade to accept such a small proportion of the value of this furniture stock in lieu of all indebtedness, it will prove a bonanza to those who desire to buy, for the prices at which, this merchandise is marked are low onnnirh to clean it all up in a few days. On account of such a sacrifice in "price all sales will be strictly cash. Mail orders accompanied by check, money order or draft will be filled in ... rfi..- of their receipt.
