Our stock of seed is now complete and fresh. We buy noth
ing but the best grades of bulk seed seed that is grown
in this climate and will thrive better than any others
from which to select. Remember our seed is all in the
bulk, and can be examined before buying.
THE TRADE HERE
Why Not Have the City Try the
Experiment of a Free Day on
the Platte River Cridge?
In the spring program of im
provements ami enterprises cal
culated to ait the growth ami de
velopment of the city and its
future from a commercial stand
point, there are several very
strong features that have been
advanced that should, if possible,
be adopted to aid in the bringing
of new trade into ttu city and to
assist in the development of the
business life of th; city, and
among the one of the strongest
is that of having1 free days over
the Missouri river ferry and also
on the Platte river automobile
and wagon bridge.
North of the Platte river in
Sarpy county lies a territory that
should come to this city to do
their trading and would be clad
to do so if the proper inducement
was extended to them, and the
merchants of the city should get
trcrether and arrange to provide
free passage over the bridge at
least once a week to those farm
ers on the north side of the river
who might desire to do their trad
ing here, and a few experiments

ssortment of Each Variety
of the free day on the bridge
would be a revelation to those
who have doubts as to the value
of the amount of trade that could
be secured from Sarpy county and
which now goes to Fort Crook and
South Omaha, because they have
never had any inducement offered
to them to seek the metropolis of
Cass county to do their trading.
Only last spring one of the farm
ers from that section made a trip
to South Omaha to price a
quantity of clover seed, and it not
being satisfactory he decided to
call on the dealers here to see
what he roulj secure tho seed for
and was surprised to find the
price considerably lower, and
while here he also purchased a
range for his wife at a cost of
some J?G less than the price asked
for one in the South Omaha mar
ket, and he returned home with
his eyes open as to the oppor
tunities offered to the careful
buyer in the Plattsmouth stores.
All that is necessary is to
bring the people here and the
value of the goods sold here and
their prices will at once impress
itself upon the visitors anil result
in a steady customer for the mer
chants. For the free days the
business men should send out
their coupons to the residents on
the north side of the river and
when they arrive here give them
a royal welcome and show them
the values they can receive here
for their money.
