ORKIN BROTHERS 1 11 ARISIAN 'Starts Monday, May 14 PURC HASE Orkin Brothers, Omaha' best known Cloak, Suit and Waist house, has acquired the ENTIRE balance of stock of the former "PARISIAN CLOAK CO.," as well as all the merchandise contracted for earlier in the season by The Parisian, and which is now arriving daily from East ern makers. The "Parisian" stock, as is well knqwn, was entirely too large to dispose of in its entirety through even a huge special selling there was an immense number of garments remaining when the store was turned over to the "Wreckers" on Monday last. All of this remain ing "Parisian" stock will be placed on sale here Monday, May 14th, at prices that will cause a furore, and create exciting buying. Promptly at 8:30 Come!

You will have the TWO giant stocks of Omaha to select from; you will have styles that are adjusted to the moment; you will buy at prices low enough to con tradict any claims of high living costs. It's a gala event for the woman who would dress correctly; it's an era of saving for those who are forced to economize. There may have been previous attire sales of import, but you'll point back to a newer comparison from now on you'll talk of the Orkin Bros.' "Parisian Purchase" for months.

An Entire Spring and Summer Outfit at a Price that will "SET EASY" The Orkin Bros, management was positive ly "reckless in marking out the garments to ' be offered in the "PARISIAN PURCHASE SALE." Take, for instance, the hundreds upon hundreds of garments they have in cluded from their own stocks; these are NEW to the very moment and might just as well have been sold at the regular pricea. But, the idea was to make the entire event enticing; to clean out every vestige of the former "Parisian" line, as well as to get rid of whatever there may be that looks like an "overstock," in the regular Orkin Brothers' store exhibit. Taken all in all, the reductions are greater and the prices lower than have been quoted for years by any other Omaha store. Come. Busy your self here on Monday.
