An appeal In behalf of n worthy cause is not likely to bo In vain , when pre sented to this class i of busy men. It Is not : ho history of the past , and probably will not be the fact of the faturo that the average nrlnt" rolls In luxury , J et in Omaha the representatives of this class are fairly paid. It would not bo necessary to sny that they can afford to contribute to the Etta Shnt- iuck fund. The very fact that the poor girl lias been deprived of her limbs , appeals : o iho generous nature of the printers of Omaha ; and while the representatives of ihis class are not overburdened with cash their response will certainly bo as prompt as it is cheerful. The Hin : suggests that the union printers of Omaha meet and fix n day upon which ear h will set n thousand type for the bcnellt of Etta Shattuck.

Our patrons , who at the opening of past seasons , have examine our stock of men's and boy's clothing , will endorse when we state that we enter a second season with new goods only. Our spring goods are already on the way , and we must make room for them , We have not the space to carry over a heavy stock of winter goods as is done by most clothiers. Our largely increased business compels us to utilize every foot of room in our establishment for the transaction of our ailybusin ess and we are therefore cent > eied to close out every hea vy weight garment on our counters. To do this we make any necessary - * ry sacrifice in pricess. The reductions we have made on overcoats land suits , and the values we are offering , will surprise everybody. To bargain seekers this is the greatest opportunity , as the pri ce of every1 garment is about one half what other houses ask for same qualitie s. To make a clearance of a large lot of all wool scarlet shirts and drawers , we offer them at 35c. This is an immense bargain , as they are good , heavy goods and would , in the early season , be cheap at 75c. What little tliere is left of Fur , Jersey and Knit Caps , is offered at one-half what they are worth. Closing out odds and ends of gloves , furs and mufflers , at greatly reduced prices. All goods marked in plain figures and at strictly one pried. i Clothing Company Corner Douglas and 14th , Streets , Omaha * MEDICAL f ° siRfficAL INSTITUTE , N. W. Cor. 13th SL Dodge Sts.
