that the United States land office In
this city will he discontinued, along
with the- offices at Valentino and
O'Neill. The offices that will be main
tained are Alllanoe, Broken Bow and
Tho consolidation of these land dis
tricts is not unexpected; in fact it has
hoon anticipated for soveral years as
tho business , has been pretty well
wound up. It had been hoped, how
ever, that when th consolidation did
como that the North Platto office
would bo maintained rather than the
office at Broken Bow.
The date of the closing of the
office was not contained in the dis
patch, but it will probacy bo between
now and January first next.

The Opening Show of
is set for Saturday, September 14th.
The assortment is large. We planned to meet every requirement of women who
demand up-to-the-minute styles combined with undeniable quality who seek service
rather than display. As such, ours is a thoroly representative stock, from which no
worthy style-thought has been omitted.
Fortunately, makers with whom we have
dealt for years were abundantly able to meet
all our demands they were as Interested as
ourselves in keeping up a reputation they
had helped us to build.
We insisted on cloth-quality and exacted ex
ceptional workmanship. Styles were abun
dantbut real old fashioned values were
scarce. Yet these makers had provided by
advance orders for nearly adequate supplies
for this season. With goods in stock they
were able to undersell many of their rivals.
TIiub it happens that
many prices are quite close to the old values which you must have thought
were gone forever.
In every respect ours is a very remarkable
showing in point of variety, in point of
real quality, in point of values which are'
not likely to be equalled anywhere.
