Almost every one recognizes in the above announcement the clarion call to bargains of
unapproachable magnitude. A very great many look forward to this event with a feel
ing of great economy assured. Few, if any,read the announcement with any degree of
misgiving or suspicion. To the majority of men oiks of Omaha and vicinity it is the
one big, bargain event of the year. It would be that to all of them if they would but
heed the message.
We say, without reservation, that this sale will call out the biggest crowds that have as
sembled in any clothing store in a year and that the first day will see the greatest jam.
Why do we say it what right have we to prophesy? Well, each time we hold one of
these sales the crowds are greater than the time before they increase in exact ratio to
our increasing business and wider knowledge of different sale methods. This store has
grown considerably during the past year and to those people who have helped it to
grow no other sale will appear worth considering.
Please take your time in making selections even If a sales
man should so far forget himself as to hurry you take your
time and satisfy yourself we don't believe in rushing you
Men of Irregular Build Amply Provided For
. "Wo care not a bit how nature has formed you you
can. be fitted during this sale. The fellow of regular
build has no advantage over you. You may bp ex
traordinarily large or extraordinarily small you may
be stout, very stout, or you may be thin and tall aud
find here a splendid assortment of garments, notonl
to fit you but to please ytmr oveiy whim. Fellows of
slender, youthful proportions are equally sure of a sat
isfactory choice. "
Get Here Early, if You Can
While we have thousands of garments all our broken lots to
dispose of during this sale yet' we advise .early buying on Satur
day. Not because of any advantage in selection but for another
reason. Tho majority of men work until Saturday noon and
must of necessity shop in the afternoons. This results in a Ire-
, mendous rush duririg'that parTof the day and you, if you can so
arrange it, should buy in tho morning when tho crowd is not so
great as a consequence of which our painstaking salesmen can
give the best of attention witliout slighting you or the other
fellow. Please try to shop early.

How the Elgin butter dealeis can quote
a price on the commodity a week In ad
vance and "base It on sales" Is a ques
tion only they can answer. The ukase
from there is that this coming week but
ter shall sell for 31 cents a pound and,
following suit, the coming week In Omaha
butter will be sold for 36 cents.
Sume am Ileforc.
A. King, manager of llayden Hros.
grocery department, declares the Elgin
butter board operations are Just the same,
now as before "all' the noise" was mado
about abandoning the committee fixing
prices and allowing the commodity to
price itself through supply and demand
"When Elglu announces butter at "!
cents," nays he, "I ran go to all tho
butter dealers In Omaha or this section
of the country and have quoted to nie
only one price cents. They probably
hav a way of figuring out at Elgin what
the supply and demand on butter will be
a week ahead of time ami announce Ui-
price that suits, but If their calculations
aro correct tho board probably rou'd
make more money setting up as a fortune
telling corporation." ,
Egg prices are tha same thin week u

Sugar Is another commodity that mutt

now selling twenty-one pounds for $1, It
is said that there are more than 1,000,000
bags of sugar In storage between Omaha

JEROME P. MAGEE WINS POINT
In Fight Over Pratt Estate His Op
ponents Hake Concession.
AN AGREEMENT IS REACHED
Attorney, for Different Contratnnt.
Jlnrn Conference In Coant
Jndfrr'a Chambrrit and Ar
rlve at Coiuproraalc.
Jerome P, Magee, who Is fighting with
his father and his brother, Henry W
Magee and Wayland V, Magec, over
what Is left of the estate of the late
Colonel James Ilervey Pratt, haa won a.
point. Ills opponents consented to a hear
ing on Henry Yf. Magce's IwJXK) claim
against tho estate before hearing is hod
on Jerome P. Magee's motion to extend
the time for filing of additional claims.
Hearing on the fX.OOO claim woa set for
1:20 this afternoon.
Hen 8. Maker, attorney for Henry W,
Magec and Wayland W. Mugea, and J.
W. Woodrough, attorney for Jerome 1.
Magee, reuched this agreement In a con
ference In 'County Judge CrHuford'a
r :mb'it -The Masten were preent, but
took up iit in the dUcuBilon. It ta
apparent that there was between tlmm
little of the harmony that ordinarily ex
ists between brothers and fathers ojkI
sons. Wayland W. Magee and his fathe
remained In one corner of the room, whllo
Jerome occupied another.
When the luto Colonel Pratt died it was
found that before his death ho had deeded
his principal possession, the J1CO.00O Hum
merhlll farm, to his daughters, Mrs.
HJalmar Olsson of Hweden and Mrs.
Henry W. Magee of Chicago, In undivided
halves, Mrs. MHgee had died, leaving
her half to her husband. Colonel Pratt'o
will left half hU estate to Mrs, Olsson
ami thn other half to his grandsons,
Wayland W. and Jerome P. Mugec, Hut
thn estato Ih worth only about ISi.OQO, ac
cording to the appraiser's reiort.
Iouarkrji-r llua Clnlni, x
Of this amount Mrs. Karla Hehn, the
colonel's houstkeoper, claims $12,000, Wer
claim being disputed by Wayland W.
Magee as executor ot the will and special
udmlnlstraur of tho estate.
The buttle now Is between Jerome P.
Magee on one side. Wayland W. Mugoe
und Henry W. Magee on another, und
Mrs. Itchu on a third.
Following llinry Magee's filing of
a lS.OOO claim ugulnst the estate for at
torney's fees Jerome asked that the tlm
for filing addltlomtl claims bo extendi!.
as It will expire by operation of law next
week. Wayland W. and Henry Mugeu
objected," If their. objection had been sus
tained Jerome would have been barred
from filing any further claims against
tho estate to counter Henry W, Mogee'p
claim, fly the stipulation Jerome may
fight Henry W. Magee's claim, aud If
he loses that fight he still will havo a
chance to gain an extension of time and
file more claims for himself. Hearing
on his motion to extend thn time was
continued by stipulation until March L
Jeromo P. Magee, who recently pur
chased Mrs. HJalmar Olssou's halt In
terest In the Huinmerhlll farm, has filed
suit against Henry W. Mageo and Way
land W, Magee In district court for parti
tion of tho property. If it cannot be di
vided he wants It sold and tho proceeds
divided between him and his father.
At 1:20 linker. an attorney for Henry W,
nnd Wayland W. Magee asked for tutthcr
postponement of hearing on the ftf.OOO
claim, whorouimn Woodrough charged
Wayland W. Mageo with failure to ox
eeute the will of Colonel Prat atTd Svlth
delaying administration of thn estate. He
filed an application for an order eoin
mnndlng Wayland W. Mugeo cither to
take up the o5,CO claim und others and
proceed with administration or show
causu fur his alleged dilatory tactics.
Hearing on this application will be had
within a few days,
