Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 10, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta I EXTRAORDINARY | WATCH VALUES Df) yon want a watch? Most everyone does. Ever-body needs one. Some people, however, don't feel like paying a large sum for one. They try, to get along by dei^ending on the public clocks and their friends for the time. Inconvenient, of course. I have a number of watches in stock that I wish to dispose of at bottom prices. All the leading makes. They are all first-class timekeepers, as I tpst nacli one myself before putting i( out. Theyare ix^sitivt'ly .so cheap that there is no further oxfnso for yom' going without a watch. ;W. J. Armstrong -JEWELER ENGRAVEB OPTICIAN.
