much space as last year, but moxt of the

C. C. George returned last week from
an extended trip In the Faclflc coast
states and Canada, amazed at the rapidity
of development In the Canadian provinces
of Manitoba, Alberta, and British Colum
bia, but feeling certain that the United
States, and Omaha particularly, Is the
safest place to have money invented.
Western Canada, he sas, is passing
through that period of development which
Nebraska knew in the boom days which
preceded the great depression In realty
"Calgary, which ten years ago had S.000
people." said Mr. George, "now - claims

with the growth In population. They have
just built a municipal street railway sys

"Vancouver has grown from nothing to
110.000 in twenty-five years, and with the
suburbs, has a population of 140.000.
Building permits have been running $1,000,

to Be Assisted by
Ak-Sar-Een visitors will be well taken
care of this fall through the efforts of
the Young Men's Christian association.
At the request of the board of governors
that organization will re-eftablish Its
rooming directory, which was a success
last year. All visitors to the city can
apply at the Young Men's Christian As
sociation building. Seventeenth and liar
ney. and get all the Information possi
ble on prices and locations of. rooms with
out cost. The keepers of lodging hounes,
hotels and rooming houses are aske'd by
the Young Men's Christian association to
send in this Information at the earliest
pOBBible moment, so that the directory
will be efficient and convenient and give
as greet a variety of places to choose
from as Is possible.
BURLINGTON STILL SELLS
THROUGH COAST TICKETS
in the snaKe-up over tnrough car
service to California coast points It is
announced at the Burlington general or
flees In Omaha that this railroad has not
discontinued selling through tickets to
San Francisco and Los Angeles.
The method now employed, as explained
by General Passenger Agent Wakeley,
this: Passengers having coast points as
their destination, will ride In Burlington
cars to Denver. At the Union station
there they will get out of these cars and
step into sleepers going out over th
Rio Grande, occupying berths that have
been secured in advance, going on from
Salt Lake and Ogden over the San Pedro,
the Western, or the Southern Pacific, as
they may desire.
According to Mr. Wakeley, the only
effect of the closing of the Ogden and
Salt Lake gateway is that a change of
cars la required at Denver.

of Lace Curtains, Drapery Goods. Curtain Nets, Up
holstery Goods, Couch Covers and Portieres
As we are discontinuing the wholesale curtain and drapery business
we find ourselves greatly overstocked in our drapery department. We have decided to close
out all our surplus stock without reference to quality or quantity so as to make room for other departments which
we now intend to open.
The prices at which these goods are offered are, in many instances, less than half the regular retail figures.
There is not an article which is not quoted at reductions ranging from 25 TO 50 PER CENT. These goods are
all new STYLES and UP-TO-DATE designs, and not anything bought, as is customary, for special sales.
You will find the choicest goods of all descriptions to select from, all offered at prices less than inferior
articles that sell elsewhere. It will pay you to supply your wants now. You will not again have an opportunity
to secure such values as these.
The few prices which we herewith quote indicate the reductions that are made throughout the stock.
