Trade Where You Save. You Save Most When You Buy From Us, Because Our Profit is 3 per Cent. THE average net profit on all goods sold by us during the past five years has been 3 per cent and, starting with the year of 1922, we announce this as a permanent policy. Our prices will be fixed to yield a net profit not exceeding 3 per cent. The prices in this style book are fixed on that basis. Consider what that means—a profit of only 3¢ on each dollar. You know exactly what we make on your dealings with us. And you know that these prices are rock bottom. They can not be shaded one penny if we are to remain in business. If we sold you this merchandise without any net profit it would cost you only 3¢ less on the dollar. The Chicago Mail Order Company is thirty-one years old. Our business is nation wide. Our customers are numbered by hundreds of thousands. We have an enormous buying power. We have shrewd buyers in every market watching for opportunities. We have large cash resources to take advantage of every sacrifice, every discount offered, and manufacturers, knowing that we have an outlet for millions of dollars' worth of merchandise yearly, give us price concessions impossible to grant to other houses. You know that our success depends upon underbuying and underselling, so you may be sure that we do not permit any concern in the country to buy lower or sell lower than we do. And when we sell you merchandise at 3 per cent net profit, you know that you are buying at the rock bottom price because we guarantee our prices to be lowest. It is easy to say "lowest prices in America." "Greatest bargains ever offered." We guarantee it. We give you below a written legal guarantee that our price on anything you buy from us is lower than what the same goods can be bought for elsewhere and we will accept the return of merchandise and refund all the money paid, or refund to you the difference in actual cash, if you find you have paid us a higher price in any instance. We offer you the absolute certainty that we save you the very last penny on all goods you buy from us. Our Lowest Prices and Money-Back Guarantee. We guarantee every article in this catalogue to be exactly as illustrated, described and represented. If upon receipt you find the merchandise you ordered, even though exactly as represented in our catalogue, is not entirely satisfactory, please return it at once and your money will be refunded, including return charge expense. We positively guarantee our merchandise to be as low or lower in price than the same goods—quality for quality—can be obtained from any other mercantile establishment in the world. If you find you have paid us a higher price in any instance, write us, giving full information, and we will instantly refund to you the actual difference in cash. We allow no house, no matter where it is located, to undersell us. We Deliver Everything Free! Do you know that the Chicago Mail Order Company is practically the only mail order house in the world today that delivers goods Free to the very door of your home?

PARIS' Newest Spring Ideas [Inspired our "STYLE QUEEN" Fashions.] Imported Parisian Turban—the inspiration for several of our most beautiful hats. (See style 70 A 1914 page 10.) [Photographic picture of the Parisian] Rue de La Paix. A Parisian importation, exhibiting the latest style tendencies. The Batteau neckline, the flowing sleeve, and the low waistline, have all been adopted by us. A reproduction of this model will be found on page 20. Swinging along in the fashion parade on the Champs de Elysee one sees innumerable capes. Madame Merrick chose this one as typical of the mode. Capes which owe their charm directly to this imported mode, appear in this book. An exquisite style seen on smartly dressed women on the boulevards of Paris. An exact reproduction of this pump will be found on page 164. Other models showing Paris influence will be seen throughout out shoe section. CHICAGO MAIL ORDER COMPANY. All Goods Delivered Free.

PARIS' Newest Spring Ideas [Inspired our "STYLE QUEEN" Fashions.] A bewitching imported model, revealing the fact that Paris sponsors large hats for dress wear. [Photographic picture of the Parisian] Place de L'Opera. With true Parisian dash, the original of this sports costume was worn at the fashionable races just outside of Paris. Lanvin executed it for us from a sketch by our style critic. It forms the background for many of our nobbiest sports clothes. Almost lacy in effect are the latest French shoe creations, bits of leather fastened together by straps and buckles. A splendid copy of this model is offered on Page 166 at about one-tenth import cost. In the rendezvous of fashionable Parisians, the draped skirt, uneven hemline. Batteau neckline, and flowing sleeves are seen. So that our frocks might correctly portray all these fashion hints, Madame Merrick sent us this dress. Indiana Avenue and 26th Street, Chicago.

We Bring PARIS STYLES to you at AMERICA'S LOWEST PRICES and we are the first and only mail order house in America to bring to its customers these priceless pearls of style. Madame Merrick, whose taste and judgment in matters of style are incomparable, personally canvassed the leading dressmaking establishments and the finest style shops of Paris almost inch by inch. Thousands of the exclusive models of the Masters of the Mode, she saw—hundreds of the best she bought for the exclusive use of the Chicago Mail Order Company. Worth, Jenny, Paquin, Madeleine & Madeleine, Maria Guy, Reboux, Varon, M. Talbot, the world famed master artists of style, made each his contribution to us, in style dreams so beautiful, so bewitching, so ravishing in their charms that Madame Merrick when seeing them on the boat for New York seemed loath to let them go. Using for inspiration our own Exclusive designed Paris models, many of which cost us as much as $300 and $400 landed in this country, our own expert designers, always under the direction of Madame Merrick, reproduced for our customers, with modifications to suit American women, the wonderful garments, millinery, and shoes offered throughout this book, so it may truly be said that the dress, or coat, or hat you purchase from us this season is — Paris inspired! And, most important of all, these Paris inspired styles, purchased from us, cost you only a mere fraction of the cost of the original models. We offer for example, wash dresses as low as $2.98 and silk dresses as low as $7.98; other prices in the same proportion. A few of the original imported Paris models are illustrated on pages B and C to show you some of the most important style features that will be dominant this season. Sleeves and collars have been accorded unusually novel treatment by the designers, and skirt lines likewise strike an interesting note. Adaptations of these ideas, as well as many others, will be found in the many beautiful models shown throughout this wonderful book. We Will Not Sell to Dealers or Designers. Only with the greatest effort and expense has it been possible for us to procure these genuine imported Paris models for our customers and we cannot, and will not sell any of the garments offered in this book to dealers or designers, for copying purposes.
