A Hasty Little
Beginning with a plate of soup followed by a dainty sandwich or salad becomes a
delightful repast to an unexpected visitor. The line of canned meats, fish and fowl
carried by us is as clean and healthful, and in many respects better than those gen
erally prepared at home. We are trying to conduct the best store in Plattsmouth and
we mean BEST. We give below a list of good dependable groceries that we wish you
would look over. We have all kinds ot fresh vegetables, canned and bottled meats,
fruits, cheese, relishes, olive oil, oh lots and lots of table delicacies.
