The Brictson prod uct has been sold in every state in the union and in many foreign countries. Prior to this time the business has been conducted almost exclusively by mail. Choose Omaha. The industrial committee of the Commercial club heard of the success of this company and extended an in vitation to it, even sending Industrial Secretary Gillan to Brookings to in vestigate it. The Brictson company selected Omaha as its new location because of its superior railroad facil ities and the rich territory it serves. The date of the moving of the plant has not been decided.

Flittie, cashier of the Bank of Brookings; W. L. Mont gomery, president of the Iowa State Savings bank of Sioux City, la., and O. A. Brictson, president and general manager of the company. To the above named directors will be added two Omaha men at an early date.
