Company is Going
Out of Business
The Rubcl Furniture company la going
out of business.
This announcement has created a stir
in business circles of Omaha. It la
made, so the proprietors assert. In a
literal sense and the entire stock of high
grade merchandise will be sold as rapidly
as the publlo takes advantage
of the big cut In prices made with the
idea of getting quick action.
Four floors of furniture, carpets, dra
perles and stoves will be disposed of at
once. The leases on the store building
and on the warehouse expire In a very
short time. They will not be renewed.
This Is not a bankrupt sale, but is a
'"Simon-pure" going out of business r
rangement. Other interests will claim the
attention of the proprietors as soon as
they can close up their affairs in con'
nectlon with the furniture store.
The store Tuesday was crowded with
persons attracted by the special prices
announced In papers Monday and Tuesday
morning and the Indications are that
with such merchandise apd such prices
It will not take long to dispose of even
this large stock.
