Plan on Foot to Have Crowd at State
Gathering Leader Will Not Put
Separate Ticket in Field Counties
Des Moines, July 22. The promot
ers of the new third party In Iowa con
fidently predict an attendance of six
or seven hundred delegates to their
state convention here Wednesday. The
county conventions were fairly well
attended. In some counties no con
ventions were held, but In many of
them there was a fair turnout of men
for the selection of delegates who will
come to Des Moines to help In organ
izing a new party.
The convention will be held in the
Coliseum, which will Beat 6,000 per
sona. The arrangements were made
for the Coliseum when it was sup
posed that Colonel Roosevelt would
come In person and make a speech.
In that case the building might have
been filled. The only speakers thus
far arranged for are Rev. Charles Tal
mage and possibly Senator Dixon of
It Is expected that a delegation will
be selected to go to Chicago and aid
in the nomination of Roosevelt for
president. It ia possible a double del
egation will be selected. The conven
tion will also choose candidates for
presidential electors, men who will
go on the stump and campaign for the
party In all parts of the state.
It has been decided by all the Jead
era of the movement that under no
conditions will an effort be made to
put up a separate ticket for state of
fices nor for the legislature, congress
or for senator. There will be no bolt
ing and no fight for the offices. There
may he a few counties in the state
where local candidates will be put In
the field by petition. The candidates
for elector will go on the ballot by
petition as an independent ticket.

DUBUQUE TO HAVE CURFEW
Hostile Mayor Promises to Enforce
New Ordinance. -
Dubuque, la., July 22. Dubuque will
have a curfew ordinance. If the may
or follows out his emphatic declara
tion, it will be a real curfew one en
forced to the letter and without the
playing of favorites.
The mayor is opposed to the meas
ure and during ths two months the
matter has boen under consideration
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 PLittsmouth 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.

According to Dr. Durdik,
physical exeereise should be done
for tho express purpose to
strengthen the mind so it could
dictate to the body. It is not an
easy matter to restrain the body
from enjoying what it likes, al
though knowing that such enjoy
ment is injurious. A sound mind
or good sense gives orders to the
body regulating its habits. Can
you prevent your body from over
eating, over-drinking and other
excesses? Try it and if you suc
ceed you will be perfect. Should
any disorder in the digestion pre
vent you to do so, try Triner's
American Elixir of Hitter Wine. It
will strengthen your stomach and
your intestines, will arouse the
appetite nnd increase the di
gestive secretions; it will clean
out the bowels and keep tliern
clean. It, will relieve pain. At
