RULES OF THE SALE.
As the rush for these goods
will bo entirely without prece
dent , we would consider it a persona
sona/ / favor if all who can make
it convenient lo do so , will come
between 8 and 10 o'clock a. in. ,
so to divide , as far as possible , the
business through the day. This
suggestion is of the utmost im
portance. Please heed it , all who
can.Wo have engaged a large extra
force of salesmen and have made
every provision human fore
thought can suggest , but ask , in
advance , public indulgence for
any annoyances that may arise.
Wo have instituted and carried
through successfully a great many
largo and important sales , but
have never attempted anything
of gigantic proportions , or one
which is fraught with so many
benefits to the public.
The following are a few rules
which wo found necessary to
adopt during the sale , and wo
think it best to mention them as
thov are directly contrary to our
Iteinember , however , that they
will only hold during the sale ,
and are only adopted in the in
terests of the public to facilitate
First Ho careful in making
your purchases as no exchanges
will be allowed.
Second No allowance will bo
made on any kind of goods. No
Samples will bo cut over the
counter , wo should , of course , be
most happy to send them by mail
when requested , but to secure
goods our patrons at a distance
ought to have some resident in
Omaha to make a selection orivly
on us to do so.
As our shipping department
will be tried to its utmost capa
city , and although we shall make
every effort to deliver on time , we
would respectfully request that
customers will take small parcels
