Sizes to fit baby and the lady./ It makes you want to throw out your old furniture you have been planning to do over when you go into the Gilbert Furniture Store. Most especially will you want a studio couch, covered in olive green repp that pulls out and lets down, to convert itself into a bed. They have christened it "The Sleeper." P.S. Don't forget, Gilbert is moving into the Maidwell Block. Ready for business Saturday, with big surprises. [Must be where Parker's is now]/Strolled into Laser's today, and my goodness! Such whiteness--smells so good and dainty-for it is all being done over inside, painted white--stock re-arranged and everything putting on a summer look. And his shoe sale of 4000 pairs of shoes continues all week long. Sizes to fit all the family./Broadway Drug Co. has all of Max Factor's cosmetics--the choice of the movie world in Hollywood--where they must choose a cosmetic that, with constant use will be kind to the skin. The lipstick won't come off--kiss proof and waterproof--and only $1.00. For your shade./Lamps, Lamps, Lamps--table lamps and bridge lamps, big lamps and little lamps at Gregory's.

Leaves the hair entrancing little curls on milady's fair brow. Price...only $7.50 and no agony of being strung up by the hair of the head with heaters.
