BEDDEO IS PLANNING
EXTENSIVE CHANGES
More Working Space Demanded
by Hi. Growing Bu.ineM.
Work to Be Started at Once on
the Alteration..
The exceptional prosperity of
Omaha and the west has made it
necessary for another Omaha firm
to enlarpe its quarters and make
some extensive business improve
ments in order to accommodate a
fast increasing: trade.
Elmer Beddeo, president of the
Beddeo Clothing Co., 1417 Dour
las street, has unnounced some
big plans for immediate recon
struction in his establishment.
The offices are to be moved to
the third floor, which will be re
modelled to accommodate the gen
eral office, the collection depart
ment and the advertising depart
ment. The installation of an elec
tric elevator and a general re-arrangement
of the basement, which
is to be used as a store room, are
included in the improvements
planned. For the benefit of the
ladies a rest room is being put in
that will be modern in every re
spect. In order to allow the workmen
to complete the work in the short
est possible time Mr. Beddeo must
reduce the stock now on hand to
the lowest possible point
The big sale started Saturday
and hundreds of buyers crowded
the store room to take advantage
of the marvelously low prices that
have been offered. Prices on every
article have been slashed, and as
every article in the store must at
all times measure up to the high
standard of quality maintained,
the values and prices are truly re
markable. If indications Saturday are any
thing to go by this sale is going
to be a Summer. Everyone inter
ested in getting the most for their
money should make it a point to
get in on the great bargains on
seasonable merchandise.
During this sale the privilege
of paying a small sum down and
the balance to suit the customer's
convenience is gladly extended.
You will find it most interesting
as well as profitable to pay this
store a visit.
Keeping Abreast
With the Times
T
HE progress of photography,
particularly since the intro
duction of later-day motion
pictures, is so marvelous
that it seems like a fairy tale.
Enormous corporations have
sprung up whose sole business and
purpose is to advance photography.
Millions are spent each year in
research work.
To keep abreast with this means
an endless task, and the present
day photographer must be some
thing more than an artist he must
by a student, a chemist and have at
his finger tips facts concerning a
dozen separate and distinct profes
sions. We attribute our phenomenal
success and growth during the past
season to "keeping abreast with the
times." We have introduced a mul
titude of new ideas to Omaha and
the people like them.
When you are considering photo
graphs please allow us to explain
what advanced photography is. It
obligates you 'in no sense and if
you do not like our work you will,
at least, have seen the latest ideas
in photography. You will know
what advanced photography is.

Retrospective 1916
r0 you realize how definitely this vast institution,
-L with its wonderful resources and tremendous fa
cilities, exists for your service?
Have you ever given thought to its principles and
policies, its unique methods and unusual achievements
and considered what special interest they should
arouse in you?
? Practically everybody who gives the matter a
thought realizes that Burgess-Nash is different from
other stores.
f Serious-minded people, who remember the retail
trade conditions around Sixteenth and Harney, must
inevitably be impressed by the NEW LIFE that has'
developed here in the last three years.
Shrewd business men strongly advised against try
ing to build up a big business in this location. But the
advise went unheeded. The business was bought.
The new principles and methods were planted, and in
these three short years has grown this store of service.
I But what is back of and under it all I What caused
the new life and the marvelous growth?
T A NEW IDEA, and the courage, originality, initia
tive, genius and aggressiveness to develop it.
And what is the "idea?"
r Doing each thing a little better than it had ever
been done before.
r Never being satisfied with what has been accom
plished always seeking better merchandise.
If Always living up to our promises.
' Making good for any mistakes, with our thanks to
the customers that brought our shortcomings to our
attention.
T Never permitting any customer to keep any mer
chandise that was not perfectly satisfactory.
Ti Giving back the money, or allowing the credit when
ever asked.
Lending every helpful service that a store can give
to all customers and visitors.
r Providing entertainment and diversion of most in
teresting and refined character.
1; Always looking for a way to serve you better and
make this store come more closely to your individual
idea of what your store should be. Well be glad to
have you tell us how we can make it better.
Tn the meantime, THE BEST WE KNOW is at
vour service.
A Day of Joy
Greetings and Thanhs

A Happy and Prosperous New Year
Prospective 1917
IIRISTMAS has slipped down over the horizon.
1J The New Year of Nineteen-Sevcnteen is dawning,
and, as we turn over the fresh page and write down
our New Year's resolutions, a word about them may
not be amiss.
! We hope to make 1917 the greatest year in the his
tory of the store. We hope to make the store's service
and usefulness bigger, broader and better than ever
before.
' We have great plans for the New Year, and we know
a discriminating public is going to carry them through
because the plans we have in mind are all along the
line of still better service and greater usefulness.
They are worthy of your help.
To meet the requirements of our growing business
it has become necessary to increase our facilities.
This we plan to accomplish by erecting a six-story and
basement structure where the Boyd's Theatre now
stands, to conform as nearly as possible to our pres
ent store.
With this greater store will come added conveniences
for your comfort and an even stronger determination
to serve you better than in the past. Tt is our one
aim to give to the buying public of this community the
most, complete store of its character one of which
you, as well as ourselves, can be justly proud.
A stoic of t he people and for the people, in incep
tion, in development, in name, in public service and
civic influence.
' We believe in giving you the very best we have to
render a service that will help you as well as reflect
credit on us.
c That is why we are building this master organiza
tion for the foundation an institution of good things
assembled here from the best markets of every corner
of the earth necessities and luxuries that make for
you a better welfare and a brighter life.
' It will be our constant aim to be of "The Greatest
Service to the Greatest Number" in reality a store
for everybody.
Tt And we implore the New Year, Nineteen-Seventeen,
to grant prosperity and continued peace to Our
(Viuntrv.
