The Next Two Weeks we will devote to the selling of al remnants of all yard goods, and to the selling of all small or broken assortments in all departments of our store. The greatest month's business this store ever knew was done in the month of July. The fast selling caused many short lengths—many small lots to accumulate. Now they must move, and that quickly, too.
