A Very Unusual
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.

Fancy Linens Importers' Samples
Offered at Very Fine Savings
It's a real piece of news to make an announcement like this,
at a time when the wholesale markets are quoting linens at a
high premium. 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.
