THE OMAHA KtWDAY BEE- J I J A o, VJli.
AX D A. M., MONDAY, JULY 6tti
Silly sale stories fill the pages 'of the daily press just when the season opens you frequently read of
Marvelous y2 Frice Salens
Munchausen tales are told of Wrecked Railroads, Sinking Ships, Customs Purchases, Disaster, Trouble, Failure, Troubles on
Land and Sea, and "our alert buyers" "and our cash" bought all the salvage. No one else had either money or brains, and so the
people have been and even now are being faked and fooled. It's a common thing to have customers askare you having a sale
on so and so today? And unless one fabricates or has time to argue, off they go to the real originators of everyday gales, where
they are ready to make them to order. A plague upon such frauds; Omaha has suffered from them immeasurably, but the end is
near. We take some credit to ourselves for helping the good work along, for Thomas Kilpatrick & Co.'s sales are different. There
always has been a reason. This time it's a genuine RIDDANCE SALE OF SUMMER STOCKS, a genuine mark-down of prices.
Never a mark-up to mark down.
