vol. xxv. BUTLER, MISSOURI, THURSDAY, JUNE 25, 1903. NO. 34. 1 PIUMIilllll tail5111SlRSilS1ii511lg I ave Head o! Noah's Flood? Well, it was not a patchin to the flood of 1903. For it onlv rained 40 dajs and nights, and the late flood lasted 130 days and nights, and we didn't have the looking forward ability of Noah, or we would hare built a boat and took in our uncles, aunt, cousins and all the neighbors, and we would have built it large enough to hare taken in the corn field, so that our many friends and customers would not hare to plant their corn two or three times. Hut a word to the wise is sufficient We hare an inkling that corn will be a little short in acreasre and probably not orer 50 bushels to the acre. Hence be wise. Save all your hay, as you will need it to feed and sell and the cheapest war to save it is to come to our large Implement house and load up a Six Foot Standard Mower, the best on earth, and there is plenty of room in the wagon to put in qne of our Standard Self or Iland Dump Rake or one of our Sweep Rakes. Then after your hay is all cured. Buy a Lightning Uay Press, and bale your hay ready for market. Also remember that we are the only people in Butler that handle Bale Ties in car lots and always hare what you want. Yon may also need a wagon. So please don't forget our bur 4 TVSchuttler, Mitchell, Moline and Buerkena. They can't be beat, and our prices are right, as we buy them in car lots and pay spot cash for same. We still hare a good stock of the best Cultivatorson . earth, (the Deere and Fattee) and the prices we are making would indicate that we want to sell them. So don't be misled by other dealers talking low prices. Cheap prices are always afloat, but the goods to buy are first-class goods at the lowest market price and that is whit we have to offer you. As the flood is over and you didn't get to take your sweetheart a boat ride, you should come in and buy one of those Yelie or Anchor baggies, as they can't be beat for the price and are beauties. We also have a nice line of Bike wagons in steel and rubber tires, and our pricas as low as the lowest. We also have a large stock of spring wagon" and eurries. Our stock of American fence and all kinds of barb and smooth wire us well as poultry netting. Also screen wire and screen doors is complete and the price is right. If in need of har ness, robes, collars, collar pads, hats or anything to decorate the horse and bring comfort to the man, we have it. Don't forget that we handle the Milwaukee binder, the best on earth. Bring us your produce and get the highest market price, CASH OR TRADE. Our stock ot groceries and hardware was never better Call and see us. We have some bargains for you. Yours truly, Bennett-Wheeler Merc. Co, MISSOURIAXS SHOT. Negroes Killed One, and Wonndtd Another.
