Our Annual Sale
Owing to the present market conditions we will hold our Annual White Goods
Sale but three days only. When visitng the eastern markets recently, we
were surprised at the decided advance in price in all classes of merchandise.
We attribute this to two causes: I* irst, to the scarcity of merchandise in
this country, and second, the dye situation.
The main cause of the shortage is the hundreds of buyers from foreign
countries, such as South America, Argetine Republic. Canada and many of
the Islands. In fact, from all the neutral countries, who have been compell-
ed by the European war to seek our markets for their supplies, and who are
willing to pay any price to get the goods, which is the first and main cause
of the scarscety of merchandise in the markets.
1 he dye situation, too, has grown to be a very serious proposition, as
the dyes made in this country lack the necessary chemicals that make the
colors fast, which is the cause of the outrageous" price that is being asked
for the supply of foreign dyes that is already on hand in this country.
However, we are not discouraged so far in our position, as our big stock
of all classes of merchandise on our shelves and in our wareroom will enable
us to sell to you at the same old prices. While you may miss the eagerness
in our salespeople to sell you bolts of dry goods, as heretofore, as they have
instrvctions to sell just what you want at same old prices and not to urge
wholesale bills, and as long as our big stock holds out you will not feel the
effect of these war prices, and we hope by that time tke war will be history.
Yours very truly,
THE FRED EHLER DRY GOODS CO.

The New Millinery
A visit to our Millinery Department carries
one's mind forward to the balmy days of
May, when trees are green and the lands-
scape is bedecked with flowers. It is truly
refreshing after the darker colors of winter
to pay a visit to this little world of sunshine.
Never were hats made on such smart and
becoming lines. Never was there more ar-
tistry in their conception. There are hats
with springing loops of ribbon with flame-
like hues. There are others demure with
swarthed bands and finishing bows of spright-
ly charm. Trimming may soar to new angles
or be be perched quaintly and regularly on
the crowns. And flowers galore.
Everything in the newest shapes now in.
and the same popular low prices still prevail.
Miss 1 dell Snedaker, who has charge of
this department, or any of our salespeople,
will be glad to show you. Come any dav.
