The Bennett Company's Spot Cash Lands $100,000 Worth ot New -Merchandise
at a Fraction o! Its Value from Overstocked Jobbers and Manufacturers
Never was power of ready cash more forcibly demonstrated. Never was purchasing power ol Bennett's more impressively displayed
. . ... - - . ......... . i tr. iL.i
The money stringency that is everywhere more apparent than it seems to be in Omaha has created a state
of affairs among many jobbers and manufacturers that is truly alarming Dealers everywhere curtailed their
purchases and concellation of orders were numerous. Such conditions, wholly unexpected, when wholesalers
were placing their orders, leaves them tremendously overstocked and anxious to unload. Our Mr. A. L. Schantz and
a corps of. department managers have just returned from one of the most profitable buying trips ever made for
The Bennett Company. Through our immense dutlet and with ready cash at their command they secured $100,000
worth of new seasonable merchandise at lower figures than have been known since the memorable year of 1893.

These eoods have all arrived and cro on sale for the first time Monday morning We promise you that no
salo of recent years afforded bargains of such a sweeping nature. Its a master stroke in May merchandising
that will set all Omaha talking. Practically the entire first and second floor departments are involved in this
sale. Dress goods, silks, wash goods, domestics, linens, white goods, hosiery, underwear, laces, embroideries,
ready-to-wear goods of every description are underpriced in a way that will crowd the store to its capacity.
Here are May prices on the very goods you are needing and will need, lower than you could reasonably expect
them in August. Just think what such a sale means to Omaha women to YOU.
