OF INTEREST TO EVERYBODY.—Once again the annual Clearance Sale, previous to stock-taking, is on at Commerce House, Dolgelley. This season, the extraordinary mildness of the weather, has caused the demand for warmer clothing to be very small, and mateiials to be marked loiver than usual, with the result that the Stock in these Departments are naturally somewhat heavier. The consequence is that those who have not yet procured their regular supplies are now offered Greater Inducements than have before been possible both in regard to Sterling Value and Cheapness, and present purchasers are assured of reaping the full advantage by securing these Goods at Greatly Reduced Prices. This un- precedented opportunity should not be missed without first seeing these Bargains, which are offered at comparatively nominal clearance prices. —John Griffith, proprietor. [Advt.
