THE Plan some Drapers adopt -L of offering SPECIAL JOB LINES simply to attract Customers, is not one which DENSONS employ. Densons' policy is to offer the same standard of value thronghout their establishment. The Goods you see displayed in their windows are not catch lines, but the true and honest indication of the value of everything they sell. When you ask for anything you do not see, you can depend upon being shown something equally as cheap as the lines displayed. THIS DAY and Following Days, DENSONS' SPECIAL SPRING SHOW OF LAD I ES' COATS, COSTUMES AND BLOUSE ROBES (MADE-UP). THE LATEST STYLES in Alpaca and Sicilian DUST COATS, from 13/6 to 70/ NEW DESIGNS in FAWN eOATS, Face Cloths, from 21/6 to £ 5. 5s. SPECIAL VALUE in CREAM "COSTUMES and COATS.
