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 zvere 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 of 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.

committee, on credentials was not
ready to report. A recess was
taken until S o'clock.
The second roll-call of t lie dele
gates of the republican national
convention occurred yesterday
afternoon, and eame on the
motion of Governor Hadley to
nurce the roll of the contested
delegates. When the vote was
taken it showed 504 for the Taft
following, and 510 against, which
is a gain to the Taft forces over
the first test of 40 voles. The re
sult apparently causes the Taft
leaders to rejoice and the Roose
velt cahorts to grit their teeth and
fight all the harder.
One of the sensations of yes
terday was an order from Roose-
sevelt Hint, if Hie convention was
organized with the i contested
delegates in the list that his con
tingent should walk out and or
ganize a convention of the regular
republican party. Neither Gover
n or Hadley, Senator Borah or
Governor Doneen would consent
to follow Roosevelt in his bolt.
The whole question covered by
the Hadley motion was referred
to the committee, on credentials.
The Roosevelt members of the
credentials committee left the
session and did not participate in
its deliberations yesterday. Hut
this morning when the credentials
committee assembled to take up

Base Ball at Cedar Creek.
The, fast Eagle ball team were
pilled against the locals on the
Cedar Creek diamond Sunday and
were taken a pace much too fast
for I hem, losing the game by a
score of 4 to 9. Conners was on
the mound for Cedar Creek and
had everything in the line of con
trol and smoke. .He was in a hole
in but one inning, and he struck
out 12 of the Eagle sluggers. P.
llirz was the batting star for the
locals, securing two two-baggers
and two singles out of five limes
at bat, and W. Salberg got two
hits that drove in three runs,
which is not so bad for a hoy. Our
three-sacker Willie was there and
over in the field, as usual, as was
also Jeg Salberg. The locals meet
the boys down at Avoca Sunday,
June 23d, and Louisville on the
