FALCONER'S ' CURTAIN SALE.
A Great Lace Onrtain Sale for Monday.
-Tho Particulars nro Given IJclow ntul
At tlic Sale Monday the Goods Will *
Speak for Tlienisclvcs I'olcs
and ItliijjH Given Awny.
This sale , of which wo had given pre
vious notice , will bo the greatest sale wo
have ever made. The goods have come
to us direct from the manufacturers in
England and will bo od'ercd by us with
a very small percentage on the manu
facturer's cost. Wo made ono largo sale
already this season and much surprise
was expressed that our prices were so
much Jess than usually asked by other
houses. Wo have to explain that curtains
arc mostly sold by carpet houses and
as Carpets are sold with almost no profit
they depend on their upholstery depart
ment to make up the average profit re
quired. The result Is that curtains and
curtain fixtures are sold at prolils that
taken by themselves are ridiculous. Wo
sell no carpets , and our curtain depart
ment Is conducted on tlio same principle
of moderate prolits as every oilier de
partment in the house , resulting in such
n largo Increase in business that wo have
been obliged to add a largo room entirely
devoted to Curtains. Particulars you
will find below , and on Monday the goods
will speak for themselves , as they always
do at our sales.

That Crowd on Sixteenth Street.
The first thought was another strike ,
but a little investigation showed it to bo
a rush of customers at the boss shoo store
of Mr. George S. Miller , 012 North Six
teenth street ( successor to F.T. Andrew ) .
Mr. Miller is a now man in Omaha , but
a glance at his handsome , well-stocked
and well-arranged store convinces ono
that ho is right at home m a shoo store.
It was refreshing to sec such rush and
bustle as his store presented , himself and
two clerks as busy as a Nebraska cyclone
raising Omaha dust. Laying all jokes
and bombast to one side , Mr. Miller is a
thoroughly reliable and well posted
dealer , who will not handle inferior
goods at any price , and those who deal
with him will find everything first-class
and at prices as low as those of any
legitimate dealer. His stock , which is
exceedingly well-selected and complete ,
comprises a full line of ladies' , misses'
and children's foot wear of all grades ,
including an elegant line of slippers ,
children's school shoes , etc. ; also men's ,
youths' and boys shoes in great variety.
Workingmen's shoes of all kinds. These
are made especially for mechanics. Next
week Mr. Miller will make a special sale
and special prices , as advertised in an
other page of the BEE.

South Omaha Improvement" .
If you are looking for a place in which
to uiako a good investment for a small
capital wo would advise you to inves
tigate South Omaha. There are already
four largo packing houses in operation
at that point and ground has been broken
for two more , which will bo quickly
erected. Ix > ts have also been sold for a
varnish factory , and a wholesale lumber
yard will soon bo established. Streets
are rapidly being graded and everything
has tlm appearance of thrift and enter
prise. On account of her railroad facil
ities and cheap trackage South Omaha is
destined to become an important manu
facturing point. Now while lots are
cheap U the time to invest. There are a
few such inducements offered , and the
man who fails to profit uy it neglects his
own welfare. C. E. Mayno , corner 15th
and Harney , is solo agent for this prop
erty and Ins salesmen are always ready
with carnages to take customers out.
The Nebraska Re&l .Estate Exchange
ms been organized undaiow has a mem-
jersliip of ono hundred and sixteen.
Vmong this number urn to bo found the
active and enterprising Heal Estate firms
of Omaha , The Exchange was organ-
zed for the purpose pf protecting at
once the Interest of tlioso legitimately
and reputably engaged in the Real Es-
ate business in Omaha , and tlio
owner of property as well ,
to weed out from this business the irre
sponsible ntul dishonest , and thus place
do business upon a footing of porma-
lonco and inllucnco , In the adoption of
lie system of "solo agency" the agent is
ocuro in the matter of delivery of prop
erty after a purchaser has been obtained
and consequently will uiako
greater ullbrts to dispose of
> ropcrty placed in his hands.
L'ho question winch formerly suggested
tsclf to every agent after a purchaser
vas secured for any property was , "can
t bo delivered ? " Certainly every agent
vho.uo experience has been ever so small
las suffered the loss of many commis
sions from his Inability to deliver prop
erty after cll'octing a salo. There has
icon no uniform system , of transacting
nisiness and each individual and linn
idoptcd such forms as best suited them.
1'lie organization of the exchange has for
ts purpose a uniform system and pro-
> oses to open up to each of its members
a larger field in which to operate and
surround him with a greater sense of se
curity in the matter of his commisslo n
and aUdcgrco of protection against
interference of the
ier and curbstone broker" than
10 could over hope to enjoy from any
ndiyidual effort of his own. The prop
erty owner is likewise benefited by such
iiiorganization , from the fact that he
enjoys advantages which an ex
change of this character can alone
ill'ord him. Ho is protected against
ho possibility of any agent with
vhom ho has previously listed a picco of
> ropcrty to force him into the sale of it
iftcr he has advanced the price. Many
nstancos are known where sev
eral agents have had listed
with them certain property and
owing to the rapid advance in
aluo the property had either been with
drawn or the price increased , but the
owner had failed to notify all with whom
t was listed , the result was that the
property was sold by the agent not noli-
icd , and the owner compelled to deliver
lis property at a much lower price than
ts market value. It is for the cor
rection ot these and like
ibuscs that the necessity of some action
> e taken and hence the organization of
ho Nebraska Real Estate exchange.
I'ho exchange is by no means an exclu
sive organization but offers the advan
tages and protection to every reputable
dealer in Omaha. The larcer the num-
> cr tlio greater the influence , and consequently
quently the benefits and advantages are

"strewing with llowors or otherwise dec
orating the graves of comrades who died

olomicnt and appropriate words of Gen
eral Orders No. 11,18(18 ( , bo taken as in
spiration and guidance for the 30th ot

"Wats'cr prlco o'noncils ? " asked a rag
ged urchin , shullling into Mayno's ollico
"Nothing , " replied the head salesman ,
"wo do not sell them. "
"Then give mo ono. "
Admirintr the gamins check , the sales
man gave him ono , and , curious to know
what ho wanted it for , followed him out
and down the alloy behind the P'\xton ,
where spread out on a dry goods box
was a plat of Benson , and clustered
around it were half a dozen bootblacks
figuring and arguing. Their remarks
proved them to bo well posted on Real
Estate matters. As overheard by the
salesman they were : "Tell you , boys ,
Hanson's the place for mechanics to live.
Only $30 cash on that lot only 300
shines. Here's the motor road right
through it : $300 and 3 years' time ; gosh !
dad spends that much for beer in one
And in the remarks of those boys there
is much food for thought. How many
worthy mechanics are there in Omaha
paying as much for rent as would make
their payments on homes in the beauti
ful suburb how many clerks and others
of limited moans who spend as much for
cigars and other useless luxuries , as
would render them independent of land
lords how many young couples , longing
for homo comforts , who endure life in a
boarding house because they do not real
ize how easy it would bo to secure a
liomo in Benson , where choice lots could
ho had on their own terms.
To-morrow night at this theatre Mr , J.
W. Carner begins a week's engagement
in his great character impersonation of
Uncle Reuben Lewder , in his play of that
name. Mr. Carner has made a fine repu
tation through the eastern country in this
play. The drama is of the same class as
Josh Whitcomb , but has a stronger plot ,
and all who attend Monday night mavbo
sure of a rare treat. Manager Walton
has secured a special cast of strong dra
matic people to support Mr. Carner , and
his efforts to present his patrons with
first-class entertainments should bo re
warded by liberal patronage.

Never in the histoay of Omaha has

money in real estate than tlio present. It
is a mistake to say that wo have a boom ,
it is not a boom , it is simply a healthy ,
natural growth of the city , anil ono that
will continue. Eastern capitalists are
just beginning to realise this tact and are
consequently investing large amounts of
money in Omaha property Prediction
of well informed men that this city will
have a larger increase in population in
the next twelve mouths , than she has in
tiio past ilvo years. And now wo would
just like to say that wo have for sale sorao
of the finest and cheapest property In the
city. If you want business property wo
can suit you. If you want residence
property you can find it on our lists. If
you want acre lots you can not do better
than by buyinc of us. In fact wo carry

Doyd'a Last Night.
In "Tho Corner Grocery" there are t'tf
bo found many incidents which are not )
only now in melodramatic performance'
but at the same time give evidence q4
close powers of observation on the pare
of the adapter. As between the "Gro\
eery" and "DadOiv Nolan" with respecff
to the governing ideas , there is but littla
difference. Both seem to h vo emanated
from the same brain , and both seem tq
have been fashioned to suit Mr. Sully *
Like the latter picco , that of last night ,
in some respects , is over-drawn. In at ?

in the most extravagant imaglnaf

Sully endeavors to please *
and ho generally succeeds. It is not be *
cause , however , of his greatness as an
actor , because it must readily bo appar- '
cnt to most observers that histroniot
genius is not the greatest of this actor's
gifts. Pcoplo who have been accustomed !
to greater things , and most of oun
theatre-goers are of that class , have beenf
disappointed in his work.1 Ho sutlers ]

that satisfies no small percentage of his ) '
