They are remarkable, first of all, be
cause of their perfect tailoring; second, be
cause of the clever styles shown In them;
third, because of the rich fabrics from which
they are made; and fourth, because of their
rare fitting qualities.
We know that such suits were never
before shown In Omaha, or even in Nebraska
at the prices. The men who made them boys
clothing artlnts of the highest order put
their best efforts into tbe designing, cutting
and finishing. The result comes astonish
ingly near to clothing perfection.
There is another important point
that should be mentioned an.l it Is this the
variety Is so broad and satisfying that you
who come will wonder where so many smart
garments came from. There are different
colors, patterns, weights and designs almost
without end to sell at costs ranging from
$2 to $7.50 the Suit
These suits will fit boys from six to seventeen years of
age and the prices are based on the qualities. No better school suits
anywhere. Every suit all wool In every thread, every seam sewn to
hold and erery button put on to stay. Investigate Tor your own satisfaction.

Women who bear children and re
main healthy are those who prepare
their systems in advance of baby's
coming. Unless the mother aids
nature in its pre-natal work the crisis
finds her system unequal to the de
mands made upon it, and she la often
left with weakened health or chronic
ailment. No remedy is bo truly a
help to nature as Mother's Friend,
and no expectant mother should fail
to use it. It relieves the pain and
discomfort caused by the strain on
the ligaments, makea pliant and elas
tic those fibres and muscles which
nature Is expanding-, prevents numb
ness of limbs, and soothes the inflam
mation of breast glands. The system
being thus prepared by Mother's
Friend dispels the fear that the crisis
may not be safely met Mother's
Friend assures a speedy and complete
recovery for the mother, and she is
left a healthy woman to enjoy the
rearing of her
