ONE-HALF Our REGULAR LO W PRICES
A WORD OF EXPLANATION: This store was organized with a definite obecl in view; it was to give Omaha a clothing store as good as the
city, and to raise clothes-selling to a higher level. We made an estimate of the amount of business we might reasonably expect to do by dignified business methods. We steadfastly refused to make use of the various sub
terfuges for "Special Sales". Our sales ftave doubled the amount of our estimate, and at all firms our regular low prices were In competition with the regular weekly "Special Sales" of various stores. Pretty good proof
that our merchandise and prices are unmatchable. Everything being new contributed somewhat, and It Is because we intend to start next fall with a stock as new and clean as this year's stock, we now offer every small or
broken lot at exactly one-halt owr regular prices. None of the customary price mark manipulations here no special tickets with no red Ink marking to even up the loss. You simply select the garment you want and pay us one
half our regular price. . 7
