two committee oonis of the county
commissioners' suite in the court
' house for the local league's service

sition from the Grand Anmy of the
Republic that the commissioners had

missioners had to give up their own

Florence Now Has Big

Superintendent Withnell of the
fire department has installed a mod
ern combination hose and chemical
truck in the fire house at Florence.
The company at this house will re
spond to alarms as far south as Min
ne Lusa, and will be able to furnish,
better protection to the north end of
Greater Omafiai There are fouf
men on each shift at this house.
This is another step forward .for
Florence since its admission to the
New York, Nov. 21. The board of
directors of the Sta.idard Oil com
pany of New Jersey elected A. C.
Bedford chairman of the board and
made Walter Clark Teagle president
of the company. Mr. Bedford has
been president and Mr. Teagle a di
rector and formerly a vice president.
The change is noteworthy in that it
brings to a position of great power a
comparatively young man. Mr. Teagle
is only 39 years old and is considered
one of the most competent corpora
tion executives of the country. For
several years he has been in charge of
the Standard Oil company's export
business, am did much to build up
that world-wide commerce.
Mr. Teagle's father and grand
father were known as ''Standard Oil
men." His maternal grandfather.
Morris B. Clark, was one of the pio
neers of Cleveland. O., and was the
first partner of John D. Rockefeller.
They were then in the grain trade
and later went into the oil refining
business at Cleveland.
Mr. Teagle s father was a member
of the oil tirin of Scofield, Schurmer
& Teagle of Cleveland, where Mr.
Teagle was born. He was graduated
at Cornell' university with the degree
of bachelor of science and at once en
tered his father's oil firm at Cleve
land. When that firm was merged
fwith the Republic Oil company, in
1900, Mr. Teagle became vice presi
dent and three years later was called
to the export department of the
Standard Oil company of New Jer
sey, with offices at No. 26 Broadway.
In college he was known as a "live
wire," was manager of several ath
letic teams and in the forefront of
student activities and he continued
with that reputation in business.
For several years Mr. Teagle lived
abroad and became thoroughly fa
miliar with the oil trade in foreign
countries. When recalled to New
York he was elected a director of the
company and later became one of it

There isn't any artful "Camouflage"
in the Dundee way of selling clothing
Freely translated, the word "Camouflage" means
"making things look like what they ain't." There isn't any "camou
flage" about this store. We haven't any desire to make it seem like an adven
ture in real estate. Nor do we attempt to have it appear to be a collection agency.
We aren't competitors of the American Transfer Co., or the Omaha Taxicab Co.
we don't operate a fleet of delivery automobiles.
We're just a plain, simple, straight-forward tailoring
store. We do business on the ground floor at a small rent. We sell for cash. We ask our custom
ers to carry home their purchases. Our customers save $5 and $10 on their clothes because we aren't obliged to
assess them with a $5 or $10 share of unnecessary expense. Our proposition is built upon efficiency.
You can "spot" the superior quality of Dundee clothes at a glance. You
know that such fabrics usually "set you back" $5 to $10 more than our price. You know that
such tailoring must be the work of experts. You know C it such clothes will put yfu on the Honor Roll of Good
Dressers. Wear Dundee clothes save $5 and $10. "
