TH RED FRONT improves with age until now its the
most popular trading place for the majority of Cherry Co s
shoppers The reason why tis so easy to explain We
never dissapoint if we can help it we always give our custo
mers what we advertise our prices for the same quality ci
merchandise are always lower than our neighbors We
dont only say compare prices but we do say compare
quality as well We carry nothing for our customers that
we do not use ourselves Our goods are always clesu and
fresh no shelf worn or bankrupt stock and whep wc adver
tise a sale we always sell goods lower than the regular
price Hence the reason of our phenomenal smcess and
the household word it pays to trade at the REDPRONT

Is our principal line and ordinarily we are proud of
the fact that we have the largest assortment in Cherry
county but at present we are sorry to say that we have
TOO BIG A STOCK
Especially of Winter goods owing to mild weather and
in order to reduce it we are making discounts on heavy
goods amounting in some instances to 50 per cent

Last Friday while some men were
digging and hauling out the dirt from
the lots of Frank Brayton and Jas
Quigley on Main street at a point
nearly between the two and what
was the back vard formerly of the
Brayton building at a depth of
aoi3r 4 or o teet several oones were
found of a humin skeleton Those
found were 2 humerous 2 femur and
left tibia and fibula and the clavicle
A bed of black dirt in the sand 2 feet
wide and 6 feet long mixed with lime
which had hardened with dirt aul
sand marked the spot where the bolt
had lain A disturbance in the I -d
of black dirt showed that the b idy
had not lain -there unmolested and
it is supposed that a part of the bones
were taken up and removed to a safer
place of hiding The best description
possible from the size and condition
of the bones wiuld indicate that 12 to
15 years ago a man who walked as
though lame in the left leg about 5
feet 10 inches tall weighing probably
135 pounds met his fate Be may
have been part Indian and he may
have dissapeared suddenly Some of
the older residents uriy have known
something of this though none here
now recollect anvthing that -would
throw any light on the subject In
the early days there were a large
uumher of desperate characters and
and a great many murders were com
mitted that people found out or wit
nessed There were more that were
not witnessed nor told of by those
who did witness There were also
men who mysteriously disappeared in
the early days and there were secret
conferences held at times aud many
knew of part of these conditions but
those were the days that would not
admit of too close scrutiny and peo
ple who knew too much were in the
way and so carefully were secrets
kept that only a few knew anything
except to surmise and they didnt do
that out loud But however that ma
be there was foul play If not all
the bones would have been found to
gether Lime was put in with the
boly to consume the stench or turn
the bones yellow to make ihem
old lie was buried toj tiecrp for
io bones carelessly thrown aside
look
ami
the bed of black dirt showed that a
grave had been prepared It may re
main to most of our people a myster3
as in the earlv dajS there were peo
ple coming and going many strang
ers and no account was taken of who
came or went
