How Far Will a Dollar Go?
It is largely a question of food knowledge and food
sense. An intelligent selection of food means less
waste, smaller grocery bills, better health, better
nourished bodies. The least nutritious foods are
often the most expensive. For breakfast take two
Shredded Wheat
and heat them in the oven to restore crispness and
then pour hot milk over them, and you have a
warm nourishing meal that will supply all the
strength needed for a half day's work, at a cost
of four or five cents.
Served with stewed prunes, baked apples, canned
peaches or sliced bananas the meal is even more
wholesome and satisfying.

The reason why-we call the
Want Ad. Way the
Modern Way
COMPARE the present method of filling daily wants
with the method used in olden times. Think for a minute of the
old days when, if the merchant wanted help, it -was either necessary
to make a personal search or else "hang out a sign." Or, when some arti
cle of value became lost, the only possible chance of recovery was to have
the Town Crier make known the loss to the best of his ability.
Think of a Town Crier in these modern times, in a big city like Omaha, with its 150,000
Since the days when the Town Crier held forth times
have changed, cities have grown larger, and new condi
tions necessitate new methods.
So we call the Want Ad Way the Modern Way. Through the watit
ad columns of the daily newspaper all wants are filled.
And just a in every other city, there is one paper considered
best for this kind of advertising, so, in Oniaba, The Bee is the recog
nized want ad medium.
When the employer wants help, or theincmployed seek work
When you have a boarding house to fill, or rooms for rent, or flats
for rent
When you have some miiscellaneous article for sale, like a stove,
piano, graphophone, old furniture, or most anything else
When you want to rent a house, or buy, sell or exchange any kind
of real estate
When you want to find a lost article
. These are but a few of the hundreds of various ways in which the
modern want ad can be of service in a community the size of Omaha.
Want Ad. Department
"The Want Ad. Way is the Modem Way"
HE BEE goes into more than 75
per cent of the English-speaking
homes of Omaha, and likewise
into thousands of homes in the surround
ing countryside.
A Want Ad brought, sent or deliv
ered at The" Bee Office before noon isv
passed on without delay to the composi
tor, stereotyper and pressman, and with
in a few hours' time is ready to go with
each copy of The Bee.
. Experienced advertising men at The
Bee Office are at the service of those
-who desire aid in writing advertisements.
The telephone service offere perhaps the
most convenient way to get in communi
cation with the Want Ad Department,
Telephone "Ty ler 1000" at any time of
the day or until late at night, and your
Want Ad will be received by an experi
enced and courteous operator."
