Doctors bury their ?nistakes — lawyers jail theirs — women divorce theirs — but we're trying to sell ours! So... we're taking the "M" out of our best-smellers by slashing prices from the sublime to the ridiculous! Some famous merchant (not one of us) said years ago: "There's a price at which anything will sell." Boy, we've got plenty of "any things" in this sale, and we're sure hitting rock bottom in our efforts to find that right price! Read every item — have a laugh at our expense — then hop in your heliocopter t Tucker or broomstick and come a-running to the Home Furniture Store Now! The truth, so help us. Here's what happened! Our buyers must have been out of their minds when they bought this stuff, because nobody wants it at present prices. The quicker these living room pieces go the better. So help us! You can't lose. Just check the list and follow the crowds. THERE'S NOTHING THE matter with this living room suite, except that it has the personality of a fish. I would suggest, Mr. O'Meara, that you cut the price 33 1/3 per cent and get it out of my sight. Quote, Mr. Rosenbaum, Unquote. So we cut this 2 piece mohair suite in a blue color from $279.50 to . .$229.50 WE WERE CRAZY about these Pullman sofas when we bought them— now we're wondering if we weren't just crazy. The finest mohair frieze covers in the world. Sleek English design in a whatcha ma call it rose color. Aw, come on, take one look at it anyway. These were a sell out last year at $298.50 now only $249.50. Good old 1948. By the looks of our floors, our buyers must have tried to corner the market and buy all the bedroom suites in the country. They did use good judgement and taste — but the amount of suites we have on hand is ridiculous! We have gorgeous tradition, modern, maple, mahogany, and walnut — but much to much! We have priced these to move. HERE'S A REAL BUY, A two piece mohair suite in rose color mohair frieze. The inside story on this suite, springs and what not, is as complicated as a back- lace girdle. We can't figure out why you haven't bought it, but we are willing to find out by reducing $298.50 to it from .$249.50 THIS PULLMAN LAW- son Sofa is a real honey. It has personality, eye appeal, good construction and a- pedigree longer than Nate's Boxer. We only have them in rose mohair frieze (gee, if they were only in lipstick red). Oh well, crushed from $298.50 to $219.50— come and get 'em. ARE YOU HEP? ARE you reet? Here's some modern two cushion two piece suites in red, green, grey, and biege at a give away price. We have a slug of 'em. All brand new, formerly sold at $198.50 and we have stomped down the price to $149.50 just to give these orphans a decent home. Feel like adopting one? TIRED OF YOUR HUS- band? You should come down here and see what we are stuck with. We have some three piece sectional sofas that aren't worth a dime in sales to us. If these sectionals stay in the store much longer they may hatch more exactly like it. Heaven forbid! Original asking price is $229.50. She's your baby for only $99.50. Lime colored mohair frieze only. WHAT WE WOULD LIKE TO say about these four sectional sofas would never pass the censors. Our sales people have tried to make you visualize it in your home, , drol over the heavenly tapesti'y covers, the fine construction et cetera, et cetera, et cetera, but frankly we don't go for all that gush stuff —so here's action, was $219.50 now $129.50. Oh, you're peeling the shirt right off our backs. FUTORIAN FLOOR SAMPLES. This modern group was designed to look like they were just out of this world. Now that they are a year old and soiled, we are only interested in getting them out of our store. We have marked the sofas and chairs down to cost to sell at once. Even as floor samples, they are an exceptional buy (especially if you have ambition, upholstery shampoo, and elbow grease). Shop these today. BIG, (IN FACT HUGE), MA- hogany Breakfront. I doubt if you could even get it into your living room. Beautifully made with built in desk, plate glass doors (Beveled glass, too) large storage space, open ends and a bookcase top. Please buy this and we will give you a long, long time to pay for it. Our credit manager is in a good humor. This solid mahogany Breakfront, made in Rockford sold for S500.00. Come and get it for only $350.00. WHO WILL BE THE Belle of the Brawl? There will be some pushing and shoving to get to this English sofa that was $459.50 and now on sale at $298.50. It's in a beautiful Kid Mohair in Alice Blue color. We will station extra salespeople around this piece to keep the customers from tearing it apart until its sold. Bring your own shin guards! ARE YOU A SIMON LEGREE over your household budget? You are? And does she still love you? She does? Swell, now all you need is this modern lime cak bedroom suite, with perfectly plain lines, landscape mirror, and cast brass hardware. The three pieces, bed, vanity, and chest sold formerly at $249.50, and we will sell it now at only $189.50. We will deliver it free too, so what say Simon? HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THIS bedroom suite—we won't tell you which one but it's considerable. However, maple is supposed to increase in beauty with age and this one fairly shines. It's Colonial in design wi^h round pulls, made in solid maple and finished in durable lacquers. It's ideal for a child's room or spare room. Come early and be part of the rush to grab it at $129.50. Regularly priced at $169.50. THE THINGS THAT TURN UP at inventory time! One year we found a half eaten sandwich, a racing form, and a pensioned salesman under an old sofa. This year we found this three piece mahogany bedroom suite, dragged it out, dusted it off, and found a beautiful suite with vanity, chest, and bed in an 18th Century design and a hand rubbed finish. It's a Kent Coffey suite and a good one that sold for $249.50 and we would like to fill that vacant space in your Boudoir with it for only $179.50. LEAVE US FACE IT! WE are embarrassed to have this Lime Oak Bedroom suite in stock in such darn big quantities. (Actual count censored by our blushing buyer). That's why we have reduced it to $198.50 from $298.50. POSTER AND JENNY Lind Beds. These beds used to be hard-to-get — now thej 7 ' are hard-to-get-rid- of—funny world! We've got all sizes and finishes in Poster and spool type. Walnut, mahogany, or maple finish. We don't know what to do with them, so maybe you can figure out something at $ to $ THIS THREE PIECE MA- hogany bedroom suite has been orphaned by thousands of customers passing it by for as long as we can remember. It's 18th Century in design and really it was a cute little number when we bought it, but if it doesn't sell this time at this price—well, we need kindling anyway. Formerly sold at $198.50, now only $99.50. Fix up that spare room now. AH! FOR ZE FRENCH AT- mosphere of ze Provinces, ze finish, ze beauty. See this beautiful French Provincial bedroom suite in French Bisque finish. The boss saw this beautiful Mogan suite and fell in love with it. These French! This suite has a Mr. and Mrs. dresser, vanity, chest, and a full size bed or a double single bed if you prefer it. You can have this suite for only $379.50 for the three pieces. FIVE PIECE WOOD Breakfast sets. These are awful to look at first thing in the morning, but maybe you can use a set at $59.95. Many styles to choose from. KITCHEN STOOLS. WE have had these since opening day way back in ??? Well anyway, it's been a long time. These are in all colors and we must get them out of stock. ? to $ A FULL LINE OF DAY- strom and Howell Chrome sets. Buy the tables and chairs separately.

GAS STOVES WITH Divided tops or cluster tops. White enamel (no chips) all have insulated ovens and oven controls. They look good and we hope you can cook a decent meal with one at this price, $89.95. SIX MONTHS AGO WE couldn't buy one of these bedroom suites for Love nor money and suddenly we had several dumped at our warehouse door. Ironically, we pleaded with,,the manufacturer to get them but now we are pleading with you to sell them. (Never satisfied). They are a beautiful Walnut veneer, matched too, with waterfall tops. Vanity, chest, bed, and bench all for $219.50. These are regular $289.50 suites. BOUDOIR CHAIRS. You've declined to recline in these Bedroom Chairs for so long that we have come to suspect that they are too high in price. So \ve have mai'ked them down 33 1/3 per cent. On some we have thrown in the Ottoman too — providing you don't throw it back. Prices range from $17.95 on up to up. GATHER AROUND, GIRLS, and anxious parents, and we'll help you hook that reluctant beau, but fast. Buy a Lane Cedar Chest, slip it into the parlor with the lid open. Soft music, the fragrant cedar aroma, the moth proof insurance policy, swing tray, and he's all yours! Just like that! The money you save you can spend on wedding announcements. Chest from $49.95 to $79.95. Don't pass up this one. NINE FOOT AXMINSTER carpet in a dark wine color. We have a wine hangover—carpet that is, and you can have it for just $4.95 a square yard. It sold for $6.95 a square yard, but we doubt if it was ever worth over $4.95. Bring your sizes. DID YOU EVER HEAR OF Duo-Tuft Wilton Carpet? We didn't either until we got stuck with this roll of 12' beige Wilton. This is as heavy as six horse blankets and has raised tufts to form the pattern. Really top quality that sold for $16.95 and now only $9.95 a square yard. That thud you heard was the Boss fainting. REALLY, FOLKS, THERE ARE wonderful bargains in fine quality carpet at the Home Furniture Store now. Bring in your measurements and we will gladly give you a free es- Timate. TWELVE FOOT AXMINSTER carpet in a dopey beige color with tone on tone design that sold formerly at $9.95.

(We have forgotten the classic name put on it by Mr. Firth). It's a light color green and a honey of a piece of carpet. Swedish Primitive is regularly $17.95 but there's no need to hesitate on this at only $12.95 a sq. yard. WE HAVE STAIR CARPET in 27" and we have it all over the second floor.
