Omaha Trade Area '
Enlarged by Auto
Thatlhe automobile is rapidly Widen
ing Omaha's trade territory and Is help
ing to bring much more business here,
is 'asserted by W. E. Haynes, formerly
of Omaha and now a successful general
merchant of Flats, McPheraon county.
He bought an auto last summer, and
since then has made many more busi
ness trips to Omaha and bought more
goods here than he did before he got the
gasoline wagon. .
Forty miles from a railroad sounds a
long way from no-where, but that Is
Haynes' location, up In the sandhill
country. Before he pastured his driving
ponies and began using a car to get
around in, he didn't get to Omaha more
than once or twice a year. But now,
with his car, he frequently runs in to
Njrth Platte and hops a fast train to
Omaha. He has do.ie go several times
already this winter.
He comes In that way, or In to lid
weather and with good roads, even
motors all the way, almost 400 miles,
whenever an interesting trade conven
tion occurs here, or his wife and little
daughter want to visit Mrs. Haynes
parents, Mr. and Mrs. G. B. bake, 2817
'North fwenty-fouAh street Haynes
even comes to Omaha sometimes Just
to place a wholesale order. Instead of
putting up with the delays of doing
business by mall.
All these things, in addition to Indi
cating the rising prosperity of the sand
hill country, go to show that the auto

I next went to tho cloth
ing store where I buy all my
haberdashery. I have had
an account there for ten
years. I always call for a
certain clerk who waits on
me. He is a good salesman.
I was interrupted by a floor
"walkor at the front door who
wished to know what I
wanted., I hate floor-walkers.
They seldom know cus
tomers and their job is to
keep the sales force disor
ganized. I never noticed
him. I ran the gauntlet of
clerks and asked for my
salesman. They said: -
"He is in tho basement

taken from behind the
counter and relegated to the
cellar to count collars!

BRANDEIS BUYERS CO EAST
Led by George Brandeis, Will Buy
' Good i in Greater Quantities
Than Ever Before.
MANAGEMENT IS OPTIMISTIC
Under the leadership of George Bran
dels, general manager, with Instructions
to buy even In greater qunitltlea than
for any previous season, eleven buyers
from the Brandeis stores will leave In a
speclsl car this evening for New York
ond the eastern markets. Within a few
days another division of Brandeis buyers
will leave on the same mission and lth
the same Instructions. The entire corps
likely will remain in New York until
shoot March I'. While In New York tho
Omaha buyers will make their headquar
ters st the J. L. Brandeis 4k Sons offices,
Optimism rules the management of the
Brandeis stores, who confidentially expect
the year 191S to be not only tho greatest
year in the history of the stores, but In
the history of Omaha. Nebraska and the
whole mlddln west. Proof of this confi
dence is expressed in the most substantial
manner the order by Arthur Brandeis
and Oeorge Brandeis, "Buy more goods
(and If possible), better goods and more
fashionable goqi'.s than you ever have
Nineteen fourteen was a great year for
us, said (leorge Brandeis. "We have
every reason to anticipate a still greater
191". So certain ere we that Omaha's
volume of business will be materially li
Classed In this new year that every buyer
before leaving for the markets lias In
structions to out-do all his past best ef
forts. We believe we are quite conversant
with the conditions In Omaha and
throughout this section of the middle
west, and we have every reason to feel
that we now are embarked upon a new
year that will set records In this terri
tory never before attained."
