From all the Leading Markets of the World to be offered by us over our retail Counters at the
The most important event in the annals of the Dry Goods trade of the Western Country.
OUR PAST EFFORTS SINK IWtQ INSIGNIFICANCE AS COMPARED WITH THIS GIGANTIC ENTERPRISE.
FROM MANUFACTURER TO CONSUMER BI3EGT WITHOUT ANY INTERMEDIATE PROFIT-
The announcement made by us
one week ago , created , as we sun
posed it would , and intended it
should , a profound sensation in
business and social circles.
Realizing the unusual effort that
we hiid put forth'to bring within
the'reacli'of the'people of Nebras
ka' the best values that they
had ever known , we anticipated
.a corresporidi-ng return , for never
before in tlieir establishment has
there been so much labor'as was
put into the two'weeks previous
to and in preparation for this sale.
We iievejvlind any doubt the re
sult. We knew it would be a
-and1 would be the largest and most
important sale of dry goods that
we had ever attempted and car
ried through. But we are free
to confess that our most sanguine
expectations have' been literally
dwarfed into insignificance by the
stupenduous results and almost
incredible figure which our busi
ness for the past week has real
ized. We venture to assert that
no house west of the great cities
has ever , under the most favorable -
ble circumstances , sold the
.amount of goods at retail that
were purchased at our establish
ment last weok.
' For the second week , begin-
.ning Monday , we propose to continue -
tinue the excitement , and we of
fer for your perusr.1 a list of bar
gains in all departments , which
no house in this country can
match or approach. A great

RULES OF THE SALE.
As the rush for these goods
will be entirely without prece
dent , we would consider it a persona
sona/ / favor if all who can make
it convenient to do so , will come
between 8 and 10 o'clock a. m. ,
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.We 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.
We have instituted and carried
through successfully n 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 follovving are a few rules
which wo found necessary to
adopt during the sale , and we
think it best to mention them , as
thev are directly contrary to-our
, llomember , however , that they
will only hold during the salet
, and are only adopted in the in
terests of the public to facilitate
First Be careful in making
your purchases a.s 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 , bo
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 or rely
on us to do so.
As our shipping department
will bo tried to its utmost capa
city , and although we shall make
at every eilort to deliver on time , wo
would respectfully' request that
customers will take small parcels
