THE CLEARING includes such celebrated makes as W

extraordinarily low prices. It behooves anyone who is
interested in the purchase of a rug to take advantage
of these exceptionally low prices. In the face of a con
tinually advancing market we are able to sell these rugs
in many instances lower than you would be
able to purchase them at the mills. In some
cases they are 25 per cent less than whole
sale list prices.
The rugs are known as dropped, or dis

every respect. An opportunity such as Omaha has not had in years.
