A Very Unusual Opportunity A group of men with affairs of their own de manding attention have been compelled to take over the actual management of a large manufacturing concern in Omaha. These men put their money in originally merely as an investment. They never ex pected to be compelled to run the business. They own the control. This they will turn over to a high class man who will assume the responsible manage ment, guarantee six per cent return on their invest ment and put into the business approximately $25, 000 working capital. This business is thoroughly established. It has a sales organization covering the territory served. It manufactures a staple house hold article which is supplied to each customer con tinuously. The demand has always exceeded the out put. We will deal only with parties known to us to be responsible. A confidential interview may be ar ranged by addressing Box 5212, Omaha Bee.

With Serges and Other Splendid Fabrics They say "Good Things Come in Small Parcels," and we are more than ever ready to believe this because, while the shipments from New York have been small individually, every garment sent here thus far is distinctively new and fascinatingly fashionable. For this little preachment, weare go ing to say a word or so about suits. Paris decrees that the lines will be slimmer, and that the tailored effect will stand first in the procession. Blue Serge claims priority for its favored position this Fall.

It is a very extraordinary thing for a buyer to come back from New York, stating that linen prices are so high that it is almost impossible for importers to fill anywhere near their normal orders and then turn right around and make an announcement of Importers' Samples very much under their real worth. We leave it to you to judge whether an announcement of this kind is likely to be duplicated. We leave it to you to decide whether or no it is wise to buy NOW. The newly enlarged Daylight Linen Store at the rear of the main floor offers better facilities than ever for the display and distribution of linens that measure right up to the high Brandeis standard.
