Having been fortunate enough to secure the agency for the Blau-Gass, we
are going to reduce our immense Hardware Stock and evenually close it out entirely, retaining only the
Heating and Plumbing end. In order to accomplish this quickly we are making the prices quoted in this
advertisement. This sale will coutinue uniil we find a buyer for our stock and will give you an opportu
nity to get goods at less prices than they were ever offered in Plattsmouth before.
It is impossible to itemize prices on every item, as it would take over a month to go through and ite
mize everything separate. We wish to state that outside of heating and plumbing material we are not
holding back anything, but will discount every article, as we are positively going out ot the hardware end
ot our business. With the new line that we have taken it will take all the time we have to give it proper
attention, and if there anything you need in the hardware line you would do well to look over our stock.
We are going to advertise our stock for sale in the leading papers and very likely will have a buyer for
the entire stock in a very short time, so if there is anything you need it would be well to get it at once.

Connors' Pitching Proves Too
Much for the Magic City
I espie t he disagreeable weath
er yesterday afternoon quite a
large crowd turned out. to wit
ness one of the best ball games of
the season at the new ball park.
The Red Sox were pitted against
the Doctors of South Omaha and
proceeded to do things to the
namesake of South Omaha's
mayor. Conners, who pitched the
game for PJaltsnioulh, was in lino
trim and the South Omaha boys
were unable to solve his delivery,
twelve of them fanning the air.
ihetgame was interesting from
start, to finish. Plallsmoulh tilled
the bases in the fourth inning,
largely on account of errors, but
were unable to score until the
sixth inning, when Mann scored
the first run for the home team,
llirz, second baseman for the Red
Sox, scored another run in the
seventh inning, ami with Conners'
splendid pitching and the gilt-
edged support of the local team,
the Doctors were handed a shut
out. The score at the close of the
game was 2 l 0 in favor of the.
Red Sox, the visitors not being
able to get, a man further than
second base. The strong balling
by Wells and the faultless fielding
of Mann, Anil and llirz were
feat ures of the game.
The new grand stand is greatly
in need of a better roof, as the
rain leaked in upon the spectators
and inlerferred with the enjoy
