GIFTS FOK THE HOÏ.IDAYS. As the Christmas ■ season approaches, th Among the best known of these establishments is tliat of M. S. Sraith & Co., whose repiUaüon in Detroit and Michigan wel! established for these many years as one of the most enterprising and honorable firms in the country. Although the season for exchanging holiday presents has heretofore found their fine show rooms, on the first and second fioors of their store, resplendcnt aad attractive with tempt inj; and tasteful artïcles, most appropriate for presents, they have this season eicedeed all previous efforts to place before the public an alluring; array of novel and beauiiful attractions, superior to anything before presented by them. Their present collection of Parisién novelties, docks, bronzes, diamonds, etc, was purchased in the European markets, during-the past Bummer and early autumn, by the senior partner of the firm, M. S. Smith, who visited feurope for that purpose. Direct importation enables the Messrs. smith & Co. to offer great inducements to pnrehasers, in prices, asthecustomer is saved one profit. A very noticeable feature of their first-floor show room, is an elegant rosewood case, of serni-circular form, designed especially for the display of diamonds, in which this iirm deals largely. Their stock of these and Other gems is unequaled in this country, except in the case of two or thrc-e houses in the larger eastern cities. The second floor Ís devoted to th display of sterling silver and tlie platea ware of the Gorham Manufacturing Corapany, French docks, in marble, crystal, bronze, brass and other fine materials, faience and other pottery, polished brass goods, bronzes and bijouterie. The col lection of rare and tasteful article gathered on this floor gives evidence that the firm fully appicciate the growing refinement of taste, and that they have the tact and enterprise to meet it with the unique and beautiful creations of art. Purchasers of these goods are not usually very well informed as to thequality orvalueof articles such as diamonds, watches, silverware and jswelry, and must rely somewhat upon the honor of the dealer. The high character of the firm in question is a sufficient and certain guarantee concerning the price and quality of any article sold by them. The citizens of Detroit feel a just pride in this establishment, and visito are shown through the elegant show rooms by resident friends, who regard it as one of the city's chief attractions. The most cordial hospitality is shown by all connected with the house to visitors, and one cannot pass an hour more agreeably than in viewing its dazzling array of precious goods.
