Well, It happens this way. Long ago
It was arranged to make Monday night
retailers' night That Is, the retailers of
Omaha were to have a night set apart
as the night In which particular atten

adapted to them at the Den. This Js the
night the retailers are to be out In full
force. It is the night those retailers who
Joined Ak-Sar-Ben months ago must go
to the Den to see the Initiation of those
of the retailers who were dragged Into
tho membership within the last few days.
Now then, the Missouri Volley Veteri

In Omaha beginning Monday morning. A

Heavy Exodus from
City for the Fourth
Notwithstanding the fact that thousands
of people went out of the city In auto
mobiles, passenger agents at the depot
assert that the exodus to the country has
been 25 per cent greater than on any pre
vious Fourth of July, while the number
coming in has been less.
The travel out Is taken to mean that
the city people have a desire to get Into
the country for a couple of doyii, and
Sunday following the holiday this year
It gives them two days away from busi
ness. The small number of people com
ing to the city Is sold to be accounted

In this territory are holding celebrations,
and their patrons prefer remaining at
home Instead of traveling.
About 400 took the early special train
