The great Bennett store throws open its doors tomorrow morning to the Omaha public with the invitation to visit the first complete showing of the
new and the beautiful Fall Merchandise. We have departed from the time-worn custom of elaborate display of the artificial, the fuss and the flowers,
and present in their stead a store resplendent with all the glories of the bright hued autumnal shadings of the world's choicest millinery, dress fabrics, silks,
garments and requisites. The millinery exhibit is a revelation of the most approved New York and Parisian ideas. Mr. and Mrs. Hand, who have conducted
this department with such singular success, are again at the helm and promise many surprises for all who come. Big hate predominate. But there's a be
coming model to meet any requirement. The "Directoire" style is, of course, the reigning fad with new mushrooms and novel turbans largely represented.
Prices too, are as unusual as the showing itself. Prices have always been moderate in Bennett's millinery and these conditions prevail again this season.
Dress Goods and Silks in Wide Variety
A more satisfying and complete assortment of dress fabrics is well niffh
imposible. Every new fabric idea, every new weave, every new color. The
fcilk stacks are supreme. The new satin Ma.jestique, Messalines, etc., in tlie
new pAaeoek, catawba, taupe, claret, canard and sapphire, including all tlie
pastel and street shades are shown.
Prices Are KVlost Invitingly Low
Right at the outset of the new season let us remind you of this fact. It's
the one feature that distinctly appeals to all. We do not indulge in prohibi
tive juices. We want the volume of business and make it a point to always
have the most attractive values. Whether you buy or not you will be cordially

NINE ELEPHANTS TO A MAN
luge Rag of Big l.aiue Secured 07
Mae Hatch Hanlera In
To secure a bag of eighty-one elephants
in lhfM prosaic dsy will seem like a
lram to most iortfrmn, but the feat haa
been acromfjlished by J 5V Vtljoen and
eigti1 othi I mi t r 1 1 lirmtrj In thr laoniag

thrown the distilct oien for the destruc
tion of elephants, and this enormous bag
was made within sixty miles nf the capital
of Itlu.xJ, f In. and near the railway.
Vlljoen and Lis party pitched their camp
at Ma'iiiS'li.H). the center of the elephanl
district, and divided up into patrs-a fad
which nearly led to a fatality, for going
through tlie I) us 11 Viijoeii e.tooun.eied his
first elephant, which he ahot. As this fell
another one crashed thiou-h the trees at
the bark of the hunter and pursued him,
once striking tlie horse with his trunk,
until VUJoen succeceded in reaching clearer
giound. where he found himself thirty
yards ahead of his pursuer. Slipping off
his horse, he fired at ths elephant, and
fine Incident marred the tport, and that
waa the an idcntal shooting of a member
of the party named Klof. Kloff and three
companions pa,r'l n" a1"! walked at a
dutanct of abjut f;f(;- arda ar,art, when

him, and they, seeing the Ijigfi ii.imiiiiik

norant of Klof f wlierealiouif , fired at the
elephant, und while one bullet dispatched
the elephant, ti.e other found a billet In
tlof f s neck, killing him instantly.
The parly came back to the Transvaal
the. richer fur S.U'i pounds f ivory and
ssven young elofihants. The first 0110 was
captured when half grown. It was feeding
with four grown elephants, all of which
were ahot, and then the little one, instead
of running away, made for the hunters,
two of whom seized its tail, while the two
othera hung on to each ear, and there
was a tussle for hllf an hour, ftr wnli h
the elephant was rolled on its back anil Its
