we would like to get. the eity of

a room will bo devoted to displaying
the resources of the various <lis
tricts; our quarters cost ifSM) rent
per month and we have an outlay o[
$150 for light and janitor. We also
have a convention ball, which will be
a center of activity. We propose to
make a charge of $4 per square foot,
per annum, 50 square feet of space
would cost the exhibitor $21111 per year
We propose to have the exhibit officially opened by the lirst of October.
We want you people to take space in
this exhibit, ami prefer thai each city
take a space ol 50 feot, giving a front
of 10 feet and end of live feet, Tho
exhibit must be fitted up by the e>

REVELSTOKE, B. C, AUGUST io, 1912.
Dear Cistomers :
If you were positively sure in vcur mind lhat you could get really BETTER HOUSE FURNISHINGS
for your mone) than you could possibly get by sending cm of town, and at the same time enjoy the advantages of
liberal and considerate treatment at all limes, you would not hesitate a moment about buying here.    Would you?
We have been'in this business over twenty years, and have learned how to BUY RIGHT and SELL
RIGHT. Because of our unusual resources for large buying and the saving we make by getting our goods in carloads instead of by local freight, we can AND DO sell goods for less money than you can buy them from mail
order houses with freight added.
Renumber, this is a big stock to choose from, comprising everything for the home from cellar to garret, and
every article we sell is such GOOD VALUE that it will either make for us a new customer or draw an old one
closer.
We have only to convince YOU of the truth of these statements to induce you 10 call. You have only to
see and examine the values we offer to CONVINCE YOURSELF that our goods are worthy of your preference.
May we expect a visit from you SOON ?
YOURS VERY TRULY,
HOWSON & COMPANY, LIMITED
