MARKET WEEK HERE
Declare it is Another Indication of
ProgTes&mness of City as
SAT OMAHA IS BO TOD TO GROW
J. J. Collins of Qreeley, Neb., Is on of
the visiting merchants who Is enthusiastic
elout the merchants' market week and
about the future of Omaha. "Omaha Is
a great city," he aald, "a great motiopo
11 of the state. It ta a wonderful market
for grain, live stock and mercantile lines,
and should have the co-operation of all
the producers of grain and live stock In
the territory as well as of all the mer
chants. The city la progressing rapidly,
snd this Is largely due fto the splendid
market It affords. We feel that Omaha
should and must go ahead and prctprr.
There Is no reason why Omaha should
not have the co-operation of the ratn
dealers, live stock shippers and mercantile
"As for this market week feature, we
feel It Is a benefit In many ways. It la
educational and entertaining. The manu
facturing Industries of Omaha are grow
ing and Improving eax-h year, mainly
through the support received from the
beat merchants of the state. We can't
aay too much in support of merchants'
market week and of Omaha toa pro
gressive market city. It is up to us alt
to put our shoulders to the wheel and
boost for Omaha and co-operate with her
all the time."
Prosperity In State.
As to conditions out In the state Mr.
Collins says: "Conditions have not boon
more prosperous In Greeley county In
the last ten years. There have been bet
ter prices arid more grain marketed than
at any time In the last ten years. The
farmers received more money tor tbelr
grain than ever before, and Greeley
county stands second In the state tn the
production of corW for 1914."
P, Mulholland of Malvern', la., engaged
In the general merchandise business at
that place, gives the Iowa view of mer
chants' market week: "There are a lot
of us Iowa fellows here," he said, "and
we think It Is a great thing. Conditions
are good In Iowa, and we expect a big
year of business. Crop prospects are
good and the. farmers from the marketing
of their big 1914 crop have a lot of money.
There is more money In the banks there
than there has been In many years.
Great 'Wholesale Center.
"There Is no question but that Omaha
la a great wholesale and Jobbing center.
il is me greatest west of Chicago. These
merchants' market weeks conducted here
are not only a benefit to the Jobbers In
Omaha, but are In fact a great benefit to
the retailers from all parts of the trade
territory, who take advantage of the op
portunity to come in here at this time.
While the entertainment the Omaha fel
lows furnish Is splendid and la appre-l
elated, the meeting here with brother
merchants from all parts of the trade
territory Is a great help to the merchant'
In working out the problems of his bust
ntss." Malvern Is well represented during the
merchants' market week activities. Be
sides Mr. and Mrs. Mulholland and daugh.
ter were are William Fisher, Henry
Boyer and wif$, H. R. Landls and several
others from that place. They declare
that Iowa looks more and more to Omaha
as its Jobbing- center.

A Leakage That ara
How many people who read this article, real
ize the weighty influence of one little necessity
of life baking powder on the cost of living.?
Yet it is a leakage that can easily be stopped. Some
think there is economy in buying the cheap Big Can" Bak
ing Powders. These Baking Powders are hot always uniform,
and sometimes produce failures in the baking, and the result
is that more is lost in one or two spoiled baitings than you
spend on baking powder in the whole year. The cheap "Big
Can" Baking Powders should be avoided.
So, too, should high priced Trust Brands that sell at
45c to 50c a pound, for it is zx unnecessary waste of
money to pay more than 25c the price asked for Calumet
Baking Powder the best baking powder that can be

is used in millions of homes. Sold by thousands of dealers.
