The Socialist. Populist and
Prohibition tickets are complete
only so far as the presidential
electors and state nominees
arj concerned. The ticket of
ihe Socialist Labor party, a
small offshoot of the Socialist
party, bears only the names of
two electors and of the nominees
for governor and lieutenant gov-
As to ti e two blank spaces in
the democratic ticket, this means
that J. M. Mikulenka, candidate
for commissioner and Frank
Miller, candidate for constable,
will, under the law, not be able
to get their names printed on the
official ballot. Should the at-
torney general, however, before
the tickets are printed, decide
that the Republican certificate of
nomination is irregular this
might alter the situation, though
bis decision would not neces-
sarily be binding on County
Clerk Buchanan, w ho holds that
to all intents and purposes tne
certificate is regular. „
Later—A letter from the at-
torney-general was received
Wednesday from which it ap-
pears that Messrs. Mikulenka
and Miller will not be able to
have their names printed on the

For Thirty Days Only
It is a well known fact that Appelt’s store has, during its long existence,
never deviated from its iron-clad policy of fair and square dealing, and when i
make the announcement that for thirty days, commencing Oct. b, 1904, my
entire magnificent stock of general merchandise will be on sale at cost, you
may put it down that it is so. As a merchant, I have never found it necessary to
stoop to deceit in order to attain financial success. Any statement I make I can
back up with facts and figures. The goods are here for your inspection, so are
the prices. You know what you paid for the goods before ; you can easily make
comparisons and find out that they are being retailed at wholesale prices.
Here is one of the greatest opportunities of a iifetime to take your pick at
cost prices from a brand new and enormous stock of high grade general merchan-
dise, such as dry goods, clothing, boots, hats and shoes, groceries, furniture,
Studebaker wagons and hacks, stoves and ranges, tinware, glassware, farming
implements of all kinds, firearms and ammunition of every description,
sporting goods etc. etc.
All goods in the store will be sold at cost. No exceptions whatever. Don’t
wait until it is too late ; this sale will positively not last longer than 30 days.
