MARKET WEEK THIS
YEAR BIG SUCCESS
More Merchant, Attend Thin Ever
Before and All Booit the
COME FROM HALF DOZEN STATES
Omaha jobbers say there are more
merchants from adjoining states in
Omaha buying their stocks of goods this
present merchants' week than ever be
fore. The wholesale houses are well
sprinkled with men from Wyoming, Mon
tana. Kansas, Dakota and Iowa. Kan
sas I especially well represented. One
of the Kansas fellows, Mr. McDonald of
the Boyle Furniture company of Belolt,
Kan., says all Kansas Is looking for a
great crop and a good year's business
this year. He says the snow on the en
tire wheat belt is looked upon as espe

of those who catne a good way to do his
shopping this year. He represents the

Beet of All Market Weeks.
C H. Pickens of the Paxton-Qallaxher
Wholesale Grocery company says! "Tak
ing the weather and snow blockade Into
consideration, this has been the best end
moat enthusiastic market week Omaha
has ever bad. We have had more people
In here every day than we ever had dur
ing a merchants' market week. The
week has been a success in every way."
Roy Byrne of the Byrne-Hammer com
pany says: "It has been an unqualified
success in every way. The Immense
suooess insures the permanence of the
merchant market as an Institution. Al
ready the committee Is planning on new
features for the merchants market
week ln the fall, and the visitors from
distant points are all expressing their In
tention of coming again for the fall week
when the date la definitely set. The pur
chases have been very substantial and.
In fact, somewhat larger than the whole
sales had actually anticipated."
Visitors Are Satisfied.
Jo Kelly of M. E. Smith Co. says:
"Everything haa worked out according
to the best expectations. The attendance
has been larger than ever before, and If
the heavy snow and partial blockade had
not occurred Just as it did, the crowds
would have been larger than we could
well have taken care of. General satis
faction Is expressed by the merohanta
from out In the state and adjoining
states at the character of the entertain
ment afforded during the week. The
ultimate result of these merchsnts' mar
ket weeks Is to be to cement all the
wholesale and lobbing houses together
into united effort toward these features,
alnce we have largely eliminated the
trade excursions. Trade excursions are
well, and we get out and see the fellows,
but It Is better to get them here. It cre
ates a better impression In their minds
to have them see whst we have in
Omaha, rather than merely to go out
and tell them about It. This merchants
crowd this week Is a good buying crowd."
Don Lee of Becbe A Runyan company
says: -"This Is the' banner market week.
The Jobbers are all well pleased. There
are a great many buyers here from
Wyoming, Montana, the Dakctas, Kani
sa and Iowa, Thoy are all feeing good
and the business is brisk."
