Tou don't always know why. but the
fart remains, nevertheless, that you al
ways do tori tafcr In buying a piece of
furniture you know of through an ad
vertlfed reputation. You feel that the
maker who has confidence enough In his
warea to pay large iim of money to ad
vertise his name Is going to give sou
something "worth while" In order to keep
tip hi reputation.
Take, for Instance, the BU Johns Table
company of PL John. Mich. He St. Johns
tables are a byword In every high-class
American home, and the Union Outfitting
company Is glad to feature such a make.
Then there In the "Jtste" range. It
la easily the peer of anything on the mar
ket. The management of tho Union Out
fitting company knows of the superior
product of this manufacturing concern
for twenty-five or more years.
And In rugs there Is no name better
known than the. 'Beattle Wilton Velvet."
The makers of the Beattle Wilton Velvet
are also responsible for the high class
"Tepee" rugs and "Westmoreland bath
rugs." Tou are safe on. any of these be
cause they represent all that Is high
grade and clsssy.
And. right here In Omaha we have a
firm of mattress makers who are gain
ing prominence the country over. In fact.
I4. Q. Doup ft Co.' mattresses are su
perb. The Union Outfitting company In
alt of Ha experience and with Its untold
buying facilities can find nothing better.
-"Baker" ranges and stoves are the na
tion's best medium-priced productions.
Thousands of them have been aold here In
Omaha by the Union and the first com
plaint la yet to come.
"Hodges' fibre rugs and carpets" have
carved an undying name la the homo
outfitting world. "Phoenix rope portieres'
. 'are equally famous In their way, and
where. Indeed, Is the furniture dealor who
does not know of the superb pieces pro
duced by the Ottawa Furniture company
of Ottawa, Mich.?
The fame of the "Howard Overdraft
Heater" Is so ctove to home that you do
not even have to be reminded of it. You
are aware of the large Howard plant at
Ralston, which la near enough to be con
aldered in Omaha. Howard stoves will
be Included In the clearance also.
In looking over the above noteworthy
array of makes you have made up your
mind, haven't you? You have said to
yourself: "Those lines are America's
best, if they were not they wouldn't be
advertised so heavily.' They are the lines
1 ahaU buy."
Make a mental note of It that all of
these lines are undermined In price dur
ing the aggressive January clearance sale
that wilt ba ready for you 011 Tuesday,
This Is the first local furniture clear
anoe so large that It must be announced
In sections. Watch the papers carefully
for several weeks and keep posted on the
remaining lines to be offered at positive
Join the throngs that will invade this
establishment on Tuesday.
No matter what you purchase you will
save something on It, and a saving Is a
saving at any and all times.
Read every Hem on these two pages
and be impressed as you should be.
Hesters to Go
at "Forty" Off
Who bssn't heard, of the heater that
gives "twice as much huat at one-half
the usual amount of fuel?"
Of course, you know of the "Howard
Overdraft Heater," and you also kuow
that it is manufactured right hero In
Ralston, (that's bear enough to Omaha
to deserve blng boosted just as Omaha
made goods should be boosted),
Well, every "Howard Heater" at
present In the stock of The Union Out
fitting Co. at 1Mb and Jackson streets,
will be offered you, commencing January
1 at a discount of 40 per cunt. Think
of It! That's almost a half reduotloa on
the finest heater you know of.
The "Howard" Is. without doubt, the
moet perfect soft coul boater made; and
American people certainly know it, for
the Howard peuie are shipping the heat
ers all over the United States.
Mr. Howard, patentee of the "Howard"
heater, and president of the company
manufacturing It, Is very anxious to make
the "Howard" the most popular heater in
Omaha, by reason of Omaha being close
enough to be considered the home of the
factory. Uooet for "Howards" and use
them. They ate built on principles that
make them right. , ,
The Union outfitting Co, Is sole Oiuahn
distributer for this muko of heatt-r and
the mere announcement that one will be
able to purchase them at 40 per cent It wi
than regular, should have the effect to
clone out every "Howard" in stuck on

There is probablyy nothing, after all, in which
quality is so important a factor as in stoves and
' . .V If ff . i
ranges; nothing in the whole list or
the household's furnishings which re
ceives such hard or such constant use
as the stove or range, or in whose up
keep a woman takes so mveh pride.
Therefore, we say emphatically: lt pays
to buy good stoves and ranges. ' And just
as emphatically we assert that Estate Stoves

V course you may expect a busy scene here during this January Clearance, but you
will be wailed upon MOKE carefully than ever before, for extended arrangements
for handling a greatly increased business include many extra salespeople. A
number of extra delivery wneons will also be iut on and delavs will thus bo
avoided. The windows are being filled with "Clearance Sale" merchandise as fast as
possible, so you may even judge vnlues from the OUTS1DK of the store. Orders from out
of town will be handled by a "house shopper," and the management will strain itself to
increase an out of town trade that has already reached tremendous proportions. In fact,
it will prove the most economical move you have ever made if you will COME to OMAHA
on a furniture buying trip; you'll save railroad fare over and over on any purchase made.
