From a feeding

to with pride.

In busy South Omaha are gome of the ,
best, most substantial and best known '
firms of the state. The South Omaha
Stock Yards company, of course. Is a
national Institution, with business Inter
ests In all. sections of the country. Im
proved and Increased facilities for hand
ling live stock In the most prompt manner
have made this company very popular
with all shippers and all persons con
nected with the stock yards . Industry,
Due In great part to tho manner In which
the stock yards company has conduct 1
Its business, Is the growth of the packing
and shipping business of South Omaha.
What Omaha, South Omaha and the state

be estimated In any small terms.
The Home Furniture company of South
Omaha Is one of the husky firms of Its
kind, doing a tremendous business
through selling high trrado furniture of
the right kind at prices that demand at
tention of alt. In furnishing homes this
company Is expert. The lines of furni
ture which they carry arc considered
very excellent, because they are high
quality goods, and stilt they do not make
a great demand on the purse. They arc
able to supply every need of the homo In
the furnishing line, and they make a
point In their sales' talks that is con
vincing when they say that they are not
paying big rent, and therefore are able
to sell their roods cheaper than many
J firms can, who are compelled to pay
high rental charges. Many of the new
est designs and styles In furniture are
now shown at this store, and the omes
that are to be furnished this spring, with
whole or parts of furniture sets, will
find many advantages offered hem at
this South Omaha store.
The Sol. 8. Ooldstrom Distributing
company of South Omaha, who sell the
famous Monogram Whiskey, represent
one of tho leading branches of the whis
key business and are substantially es
tablished. The goods they sell nro
known for their high quality. The prices
are moderate. The place which this firm
holds In the public esteem proves Its
New Brew House for South Omaha Brewery
Tremendous sales during the last year
of genuine Old German Double beer has
made It necessary for tho Jetter Ilrcwlng
company of South Omaha to erect a
new brew house In order to take care
of their business. The capacity of this
new building will be tho largest of any
similar brew house In the state. Its wall
will be tllo enameled, and the whole
structure will be Banltary throughout.
In every way It will be the most modern
of brew houses In tho entire west nnd
will give the Jetter company nn estate
llshment of which they may rightly be
Old German Double beer was first
placed on the market by tho Jetter com
part)' last spring, and It Immediately
met with favor, because It was so good
and pure. Tho sales In Omaha and out
through the state during tho summer
surpassed even the fondest hopes of the
makers, and tho firm was hardly able
to supply the demand. Now, with pros
pects for, a business In 1913 many times
greater than over before, the Jetter
company Is preparing to tako care of nil
orders nnd to give the west the finest
beer that can be bought. Old German
Double beer Is put up In amber bottles
and Is thereby protected from the rays
of light that cause beer to decay.

"The rapid advanoe In laundry ma
chinery Is something entirely unap
preciated by anyone not Intimately con
nected with Its Use," remarked a repre-
sentatlvo of Mr E. Smith & Co. at tha
"Made In Nebraska show" last evening.
"As a matter of fact," ho continued, it
Is necessary to discard thousands of dol
lars' worth of equipment, before It Is at
all worn out, In order that It may bo
replaced with more modern, and there
fore, more efficient, apparatus.
"In our shirt laundry, wo have 'scrapped'
practically all of the machinery twice
within the last five years; and It han
been real economy to do this, too.
"For one thing, the new machines do
much better work than the old ones.
For another, they are much moro rapid,
and the output Is greater per machine.
Lastly, the modern Improvements mak;
what formerly was hard work, easy work
now, In comparison.
"For Instance a few years ago the
pressing machines were operated by foot
power. That is to say, the pressure wan
exerted through a lever worked by th
operator's foot. Today that Is all
"Compressed air now does all the work,
and all the operator has to do is to touch
the operating and release valves with her
toe. Air under 100-pound pressure does
the rest. .
"And it does It better, too. In proof,
Just take a look at this display of
"Ideal" laundered shirts, and see for
yourself If they aren't perfectly finished."
It may be Interesting to know that
tho M. E. Smith & Co. laundry can handle
ten dozen ahlrtB per hour one shirt every
thirty seconds. It Is one of the most
Interesting sights In tho company's btgJ
manufacturing plant nt Ninth and Far
Tho spread of the macklnaw coat crate
has been rapid beyond all belief. And
what is more, It is tiot a "fad" either,
to all appearance. The macklnaw coat
has come to stay.
Mackinaw was formerly used mostly
for the woodsmen and other out-of-door
workers In the northern part of tho
country. The fabric possesses peculla
adaptablllty for the purposes to which
it was put.
In tfie first place. It Is light, yet very
warm. At tho same time it is Inex
pensive, comparatively speaking. Just
how It has become so popular was ex
plained by one of the M. K. Smith & Co.
factory men nt the "Made In Nebraska
Show," last night.
"Why machlnaw coats have not here
tofore been more generally worn by men
In nil walks of life Is something unex
plalnable," ho said. "They are extremely
practicable and comfortable, too.
"It has only been In the last two or
three years that they have found their
market. And I submit that such coats
as these are not only practical, but
stylish, too," and he pointed to th
ksamples of the fine coats made by the
company In Omaha.
"Anyway," ho continued, "some manu
facturer conceived the idea of making a
few and offering to the high class, ex
clusive clothing stores. The Idea 'took,'
and the demand was far In excess of tha
supply. Then the women wanted coats
like their fathers, brothers, husbnnds and
sweethearts, nnd of courso they hud to
be considered. And now tho salo Is country-wide.
They are Ideal In fact an well as In
name," ho continued, making a small
pun on tho company's brand; "and for
motoring and other out-door winter
sports, havo no superior. Our own sales
aro very large, as are those of every
other manufacturer, and promise to bo
heavier than ever this fall,"
"George, dear, what's nil the Ualkan
trouble that takes up go much room In
"I don't believe you could understand
it, my love. You see, It's largely polit
ical and diplomatic, and and abtruse."
"How Is It political, George7"
"That's hard to explain."
"And how Is It diplomatic?"
"That's still more complicated."
"And why abtruseT"
"That's the hardest of all."
"I thought so, my dear. You know
nothing about It. And now, because
you're a busy man and haven't time for
the foreign news. I'm going to explain the
whole Balkan situation to you. You see.
