CASS COUNTY DEMO
To Meet In Plattsmouth Saturday,
July 27, and Every Precinct
Should Be Represented.
The excellent prospects for
democratic success this year,
from president down to road over
seer, should encourage every
democrat to be up and doing.
This being the case it is very
essential that every precinct in
the county be as fully represented
as possible in the convention on
Saturday, July 27, 1912.
Democrats should not depend
too much upon the disruptions in
the republican party for success
in Nebraska. National politics
may cut but little figure in state
matters, and we must organize
and get the party in good working
order in not only every county,
but in every precinct in the slate,
and the democrats of Cass county
should begin right now by every
precinct sending a full delegation
to the county convention on Sat
urday, July 27.
The county convention is for
the purpose of sending seventeen
delegates to the state convention
at Grand Island, and it is very
necessary that Cass county be
fully represented. And the way
to get the county fully represent
ed is for each precinct to pick on
some man who wants to go, and
will go, to the state convention.
Heretofore it has been too much
the case of selecting delegates
who did not go, and therefore the
county was not fully represented
You have someone in your pre
cinct who would accept the honor,
and he is the one to center upon.
And by all means endeavor to get
a full attendance at your pri
manes and send lull delegations
to the county convention in
Plattsmouth on Saturday, July 27.
Don't forget the date.

FORCED OUT BY HIGH RENT.
This is our exact position at the
present time, and owing to our
method of selling goods on a very
small piolit we cannot afford to
stand an increase of 50 per cent in
rent, which our present, landlord
has demanded of us, so we are
compelled to give up the west
room of our department store and
consolidate the two stores in my
own building on the east. I have
decided rather than to stand the
increase in rent, to build on and
extend my own building to the
alley, making it 1 12 feet in length,
and use the upper and lower floors
for salesrooms. When this is
completed this store will contain
more floor space, accommodate
more merchandise, with greater
selling capacity than any other
building in the city of Platts
mouth. Before commencing the neces
sary alterations we are going to
place everything in our depart
ment store, especially the clothing
and gents' furnishings depart
ments, also shoe department, on
sale at the greatest reductions
ever heard of in this community.
In fact, the entire stock must be
reduced at once, in order to ac
commodate the remainder in one
room, awaiting the completion of
the new addition.
