Cater to U. S. Trade.
Thee Omaha buyers noted during
their European traveia an eagerness
it cater to the Ameriran trae. In
Berlin they found factories working
three shifts during the 24 houri of
the day. Mr. McKnight went to
Paris where he bought Urea and
fancy silk hoiiery and thence to
Brussels for lace, fancy dres trim
mings and real Brussels lares. He
visited Cologne, Berlin and the
great industrial fair at Leipsic.
"The population ol Leipsic is about
1,000,000, and 1 venture to say that
at least another 1.(XK),IHK) came from
other towns to visit the fair," said
Mr. McKnight completed his buying
trip in London, where he bought a
stock of English wool hosiery. He
also bought linens in Ireland. He
said the season will reveal some
striking styles in golf and fancy
In Paris Mr. Carter, who was in
terested in toys, saw toy steam auto
mobiles and moving picture outfits

Bavaria, a city that is 1,500 years

chanical toy industry. The old walls
of the city remain.
Germany Busiest Country.
"It is not so difficult for the Amer
ican to get around, because one al
ways meets those who can speak the
English language," said Mr. Carter.
Even in the hotels there are waiters
who can speak English. The Leipsic
fair was an interesting experience.
Buildings of four or five stories are
maintained exclusively for this an
Messrs. McKnight and Carter
stated that under present conditions
it is not unusual to get orders de
livered even as far as Omaha within
30 days after the purchase. They
averred that the busiest country they
visited was Germany. Mr. Carter
observed that the Paris taxicabs are
not up to' date.
France Never Intended to
Contest U. S. Rhine Pay"
Washington, April 1. The French

United States to be as completely
reimbursed for their army costs as
the other governments with troops
on the Rhine," says the reply of the
French government to the American
note in relation to army costs, made
public today at the . State department.

Chicago, April 1. Harry I. Dal
scy, who is building a 33-story flat
building with a perambulator stall

Gentlemen: ' ' . I ; '
You three men own and operate the three leading Tailoring estab
lishments in Omaha, and have done so for many, many years.
rThe fact that you have all been in business so many years, and
. that you have all grown and prospered is proof that the citizens
of Omaha appreciate QUALITY and SQUARE DEALING, for it is a
t well-known fact that your prices are considerably higher than other
During almost a quarter of a century The Pantorium has been
doing your dry cleaning, and I am conceited enough to think that you
favor us because of your desire to give your patrons the best of
everything, regardless of cost, for it is well understood between all of
us that others have made you prices about one-third less than ours.
You men know that The Pantorium uses only the best of mate
rials, pays the highest wages and has a reputation of turning out the
same class of work that you yourselves turn out, therefore it is only
reasonable that you send your own dry cleaning to us.-
I thank you, gentlemen, for the business you have given us, and
please accept my assurance that you will always get the best that
skill, experience and close attention to details can produce.
Very truly yours,
