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 Biscuits 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. a-5 r Served with stewed prunes, baked apples, canned peaches or sliced bananas the meal is even more wholesome and satisfying.

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 population. Since the days when the Town Crier held forth times have changed, cities have grown larger, and new condi tions necessitate new methods. T 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. THE OMAHA BEE 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."
