Sterling Silver and Cut Glass All tin* world knows the merits of Gorham Sterling Silver and Libby Cut ({lass. It is needlpss to say anything in reference to the high quality, artistic value and wonderful beauty of these goods. They are not surpassed by the prod nets of any manufacturers of silver and cut glass, and are equalled by few. While the merits of Gorham Silver and Libby (Jut Glass are so well known, the public is probably not so familiar with the extent of our stock ; and to this fact we would call attention. But few stores in the larger eftios make such a splendid showing of silver and cut glass as may now be seen at this store. The latest and most artistic patterns in great variety are here. Many of the articles and pieces are unique. You would hardly expect to find them in Anything smaller than an Atlanta jewelry store. This great display of magnificent silver and cut glass is worthy of more than passing attention, and should lie examined with care by prospective pur chasers of such goods. For wedding presents there is nothing more appropriate, more useful or more beautiful than Gorham Silver and Libby Cut Glass. Ours is the ,<tore to look for wedding gifts. Don’t forget it when you want to buy. H. S. BANTA’S, The Store with a REPUTATION
