The greatest line of suits
Omaha has ever seen Js here
tSlO to $40
And strictly hand
tailored Suits for....
Don't mean the same thing by any means, it all depends on tho
store; some stores give more for your money. For instance, a
certain price may buy a suit in one store worth barely what you
pay for it, while in another storo the same money will buy a
suit far superior to it in every way. All stores don't sell suits
of equal morit at a given price, that's certain.
Some wretchedly poor clothes are sold in Omaha, and tho
worst part of it is the buyer don't know how poor they aro un
til the wear begins to show them up. Lots of stores make ex
travagant claims for this kind of clothes, too! Claims that neither
they nor the clothes will support w hen it comes to a show down.
This is the safest store in the world, and our clothes grow
old gracefully. They retain their shape because skilled tailors
make them. They don't "pucker up" along the seams, because
the fabrics are London shrunk. Thoy don't twist and draw,
because the highest salaried artisans in the world design them.
Wc don't make any claims for them we can't substantiate.
We guarantee them to be as wo claim, aud that our prices are
several dollars less, grade for grade, than any other storo in
town can quote.
We fit them to you, we don't fit you to them. Wo havo a
tremendous stock, and no matter how tall, short, stout or big you
may be, we'll fit you perfectly, or we won't take your money.
"What you get for the price you pay" is greater in this
store than anywhere in the country, and you'll certainly make
a mistake if you ignore us on the clothes question.
Hand tailoring In the basis of
suit value. Hand tailored suits are
the kind you don't regret buying.
We have thousands of hand tail
ored suits at the prices quoted,
that will astonish you.
Every Imaginable shade from
black to light gray, and every cor
rect style. -
They are sold under an Iron
clad agreement to save you $3.00
to $10.00 or refund your money.
The rear half of our big second floor is de
voted to Overcoats. You are going to exper
ience the overcoat surprise of your life when you"
get here; especially, if you've been to some other
store before coming. "We don't care what your
likes may be, we've the coat you want and it will
cost you less than you expect to pay.
Overcoats . . . $10.00 to $50.00
Raincoats. . .$10.00 to $25.00
Auto Coats.. $12.00 to $35.00
We've two extra special values '
to quote today. At $3.00 wo offer
you a choice of several hundred
suits that would ordinarily sell for
$4.00. and at $4.60 a choice of sev

respect to many sold In' Omaha at '

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Nob., Oct. 13. (Special.) Su
perintendent Baxter of the aiylum at Hast
ings has certslnly prepared himself for a
drouth. His liquor bill for the quarter
ending December 31 Is of such proportions
that the board which allowed the contract
has decided to hold It up for future action.
Compared with a year ago, when the liquor
estimate was only four and a half gallons
of alcohol for the quarter for this Institu
tion the present superintendent has capped
the climax. Here Is what he suited the
board to buy for him:
Urandy. J. F. Mart el, 3-star
Cognac, two cases 31 70
Brandy, peach, one case 7.50
brandy, apricot, one case 11. uO
Wine, Watersom's Old Tawney port,
one caso . 8 50
Wins, claret, Chaetau, Covllle, one
Wine, sherry, Watersom's Uenerose, .
one case 8 60
Wtne, Khlne, Rauenthuls, one case... 17 50
Wine, Uoaelle, Joseptinhofer, one esse. U Ou
Wine, Lisbon port, one keg, 11 gals.. 24 00
Whisky, Yellowstone, two cases 27. uu
Whisky, King William V. O. ons
Bum, London Dock Jamaica, Red
Cross, one case 1100
Clysmic, 100 splits, one case 10.00
On the heels of this enormous wins bill,
came a letter to Governor Shallenberger
this morning from a saloon keeper at
Arapahoe, saying the I o'clock closing law
had Increased his sales and be favored It
as a permanent institution. The letter
was written to the chairman of the dem
ocratic committee of Furnas county and
forwarded to the governor. It said the
saloon keper objected to the law at first,
but as It had Increased the sale of liquor
In his place of business he felt very much
In favor of It. Dr. Baxter, however,
bought nothing from the Arapahoe saloon
keeper, so far as the records show.
PRESBYTERIANS ARB AT WORK
Datr ( tae Cksrck to Agea Mia.
tsters Set Forth.
MINDEN. Neb.. Oct tt.-3peclel.-The
Nebraska Presbyterian synod Is now In
the midst of Its labors. Committees are
reporting progress and work la being done
In all lines of the church. This evening
Dr.. F. W. Kassell of Bu Louis again ad
dressed the synod. His subject was "Minis
terial Relief." His address was a strong
presentation of the needs of the church
and that the church owed It to Its ministry
to provide for their superannuated minis
ters. Rev. Dr. Leland of Lincoln presented
the claims of the church upon the students
of the University of Nebraska. He em
phasised with regret the Idea that the
church was not being filled with candi
dates for the ministry as fast as needed
and showed how many of the members of
the church were going to the state Institu
tion because of the Increased advantages.
He pointed out the need of a building
where the student Presbyterians could
gather and worship. N
Ore of the questions of especial Interest
to Omaha Presbyterians Is the appeal taken
by the Church of the Covenant from the
action of the. Otrutha presbytery to the
synod of Nebraska as to the location of the
new church proposed by the union of the
Second Presbyterian and North Presby
terian churches at Twenty-fourth and
Blnney streets. It seems that the Omaha
presbytery permitted trls and to this loca
tion of the new Presbyterian church the
Church of the Covenant, another church
of the same denomlrstion, objected, on
the ground that the newly located church
is an encroachment upon the territorial
field and labors of the Church of the
Covenant. The newly located church would
place the Church of the Covenant, the
new church and the United Presbyterian
church all within a few1 blocks of each
other, thereby lessening the efficiency ct
all of them. .
