The big yearly May sale at Bennett's will make history in Omaha's mercantile life. The unsettled state of the wholesale trade of America has created conditions that
compel jobbers and manufacturers to force sales at any cost. We bought heavily of Suits, Muslin Underwear, Silks, Dress Goods, Hosiery, Embroideries, White Goods, etc.
We can say that the bargains we are now offering have not been equaled in years. Thrifty, wideawake people must realize that this is truly an important sale. Our ad
vertisement today tells but sparingly of the hundreds of money-saving opportunities with which each floor abounds. Everywhere price placards proclaim alluring under
price offerings. Crowds will come. They always do. All Omaha and people for many miles around will find this the one big event of the year 1909. '
May Sale of the Daintiest Muslin Garments at Lowest Prices Ever in Omaha
Here's the culmination of months of painstaking preparation to make this May sale of Muslin Under
garments an epoch making event. The corners of America have been rummaged with the determination

Now then, 50,000 new, fresh, crisp garments greet you. Every style and kind worth having. Handsome
garments of good honest materials, beautifully made and finished, and with daintier trimmings than
equal prices ever bought before. All will be in readiness tomorrow morning. Buy a whole year's sup
