from the Potato Growers' association of
Brush, Colo., saying, "We cannot sell you
any potatoes. We will not have enough
for our own market." Mr. Blotcky says
he received similar letters from Greeley
and Fort Morgan.
"The cheapest that good potatoes have
been bought in carload lots by Omaha
produce men," said Mr. Blotcky, "Is 80
cents a bushel. With sarlnkage to stand

Merchant Tries an
Old, Wornout Plan
There Is a good story now told of how
an oversealous clothing merchant who,
owning vacant stores on either side,
rented them to enterprising competitors
and then put a sign over his own door,
reading, "Main Entrance."
This amusing Incident has existed
purely as a bit of fiction up to the
present moment when an Omaha mer
chant of like enterprise attempts the
Identical trick on a competitor.
On Wednesday or Thursday of this week
the local papers carried Urge advertise
ments announcing the opening of a new
store under the name "Manhattan Sample
Store," which announces men's, women's
and children's apparel. The firm took the
best location at hand, securing the Brown
block, at the southeast corner of Six
teenth and Douglas streets, and proceeded
to arrange attractive signs along the side
of the Sixteenth street entrance.
The basement below the Manhattan
company's store Is another clothing shop.
The Manhattan company announced
"opening" suits at 19.99,' when, behold,
tha goods In the basement Immediately
were marked Identically $9.93. More than
this, signs, together with "fists," point
the way to the basement with the uncon
scious quotation from the humorous story,
This merely goes to show that enter
prise Is more Important than Income to
merchants who strive hard for business.
It recalls the policy of some of the 10
cent store companies operating chains of
stores across the United States. It is
known that these people never advertise,
always renting a location between two
regular- advertisers, thus pilfering the
benefits of their publicity. These 10-cent
bargain stores know the value of news
paper advertising, however, and upon
their opening in new locations plan
every possible effort to get "news
stories" into the newspapers. Children
ara "crushed to death" In the crowds;
"women faint;" strong men weep all of
tha old chestnuts go Into their clumsy
press agent attempts. On one occasion In
the city of Omaha every newspaper was
besieged In an effort to get Into print
stories of the "awful crush" at the
opening of the new store.
One thing we want to em
phasize in our advertising and
in your mind; this store is pre-eminently
a place of high quality in clothes.
