Scoff at sentiment as we may for 364 days, not one of us but welcomes the kindly feeling engendered by the advent of Christmas Day, for it reminds us of the GIFT we received on that FIRST Christmas Day. To express this kindly feeling w give each o her gifts the world over, not in fetish but in humble imitation of the Divine Giver. Now t business. My stock cf Gifts this Season is larger and better selected than ever before. I need not quote prices; we understand eaeh other in that matter, and my yearly increasing Christmas trade-s abundant proof that ycu appreciate my efforts towards giving you PAINLESS pleasure. To enumerate the good things would be impossible as counting the stars; even to classify them would be a big waste of midnight oil, for you would probably skip it anyhow. You would rather see for yourselves the Goods and the Prices. COME, THEN, and I will have you just where I want you. Santa Claus' Headquarters The Picture Framer J. J.
