    The White Front Toy Store

    • The White Front Toy Store.
      • Within the past week we paid a visit to the White Front Toy Store, and was greatly surprised to see the large stock on the counters and shelves. The quality of goods is superior to anything we have ever seen in Wooster, and consists of albums, fine stationery, ladies' large and small satchels, ladies' work baskets, fancy baskets, Christmas cards, and in fact everything in the way of Christmas goods for the fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, their cousins and aunts. In the children's department there are among thousands of other articles, sleds, wagons, velocipedes, hobby horses, and toys in endless qualities. This is the place where Santa Claus can lay in his supply of presents for the little ones. An inspection should be made to appreciate the immensity of this stock. [2]
