Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 17, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta FRinAV, MARCH IT*, 1nd of sharp advances In prices, all of which la very true; but with the merchant who has properly protected hlnfiself and his customers, there Is very little difference from a year ago in fact, the majority of dry-goods lines are selling at the same figures, and the scarcity Is felt, for the most part up to the prctcnt, in German made goods which are entirely off the market. These facts apply, as stated, only to merchants who protected themselves, and in anticipation of these advances, we were in the market months ago, scouting out the wanted merchandise as near as possible to old prices, and buying as big quantities as we could handle. Last April and May, in fact, many lines were purchased for this season's selling which have just come to hand, and these splendid new stocks throughout bear evidence of early and judicious buying not only in their comparative completeness, but In their fair pricing as well. Here are the hard facts with no frills or exaggerations: Dress goods are sofnewhat higher-not much; silks arc the same with the exception of one or two makes; voiles, crepes, piques, cotton bed-fords, etc., are practically the same price; Oxfords and satin Jeans the same while Galateas are higher and very hard to get; silk and lisle hosiery just as cheap-cashmere hosiery higher and very scarce; silk and kid gloves the same; lisle and chamolsuede gloves higher and scarce; ribbons the same; corsets no higher, and Gos-sard corsets away down In price on account of being made in Canada now, and the duty eliminated; summer underwear the same; whitewear the best values we have ever shown; voile and Grope de Chine waists same, silk satin, moreen underskirts just as good value as ever; all ready-to-wear garments, including suits, coats, skirts and serge dresses are as a�od values as v/e have ever shown, made possible.by our close association with the biggest and best manufacturers in this country, who have the money to buy their materials In the right markets and had the foresight to secure them when they could and have accorded us special privileges In allowing us to place early orders for a specified number of garments for Spring at old prices, and later choose the proper styles. A good -many lines of the cheaper grade merchandise are eliminated by force of circumstances, but In the better lines, very little or no. dlffet:ences will be found as stated above. Prices now, of course, In nearly every instance, are twenty to forty per cent, ir) advance of what we paid, but we have fully protected oursilves by early .and liberal purchases, and will sell at old pri�;e8 as long as quantities last. It behooves every woman, therefore, to stock up with all .mi!K, He(.i'etnry-troafliii'(}r .
