A New History of Butler County.
The plan oi a proposed history of our
county was placed before ns several months
ago by Mr. R. C. Brown of the publishing
firm ol R. C. Brown & Co. We then gave
the enterprise our endorsement and sup
port. To day we have a clearer concep
tion of the scope of this work and believe
that the many chapters, devoted to the
general history of the county, as well as
those to the townships, boroughs and vil
lages, will lorm the complete story of this
county from the days of the Indian occupa
tion to our own times. The first chapter
on the physical structure of the county, it*
mineral resources, soils, etc., etc. will be
written from the latest and most authentic
data; the chapters on the aborigines and
pioneers will be the recital of tho names
and incidents attendant on the going of
the Redman aud the coming of the Cnuca
sian. That portion devoted to local gov
ernment will firm a correct review of the
acts of the Commissioners, and the official
life of the County; while that to the Courts
and Bar will be a record of the lawyers ol
the past and present, of tho Judges who
presided,and of celebrated cases tried here.
Military affairs will be very fully treated,
the rosier of the companies raivd in this
county being made a par' of thin important
chapter. How far Bu l«r county was
identified wit!', the War ot 1812, the Mexi
can War, and the Q .eat Rebellion will be
shown, and the names of L<.i gallant sons
who went forth from their homes to assist
in repelling foreign invasion, and later to
preserve tho Union, will be given. The
chapters on the medical profession, journal
ism, education, religious societies, manu
factures, mining, canals, railroads, agri
cultural and other associations, and the
discovery and development of the great oil
and gas fields of this section of the State,
will all be fall and accurate; while the
many other chapters on the several town
ships and boroughs of the county, together
with much valuable biography and
genealogy, will prove a veritable encyclo
pedia ol local history. It appears to us
now that the publishers are determined to
surpass the excellent record they made in
the neighboring counties of Venango and
Mercer, and convinced of this we again
welcome their enterprise and wish the
work every success.

Why Throw it Away .'
It is wor.-e than *fiuauderiuic your mean -
to buy a rack of Western Flour at two
prices from a dealer who will send the
, money away from Butler. Don't you
know that every sack of Western Flour
you buy makes the towu poorer and every
j bag of Western l-'eed you buy makes mon
; ey scarcer in Butler and consequently
| time? harder T When yon buy Wecttrn
I Flour and Feed you discriminate against
1 the Butler farmer.against the Butler
carner, against the Butler manufacturer.
Suppose you continue this policy, extend
it to other branches, and buy your uieat
and your bread and your other things out
West too. Why. you will have no need
for batchers, nor lor bakers, nor for anv
stores. This practice would bring business ;
to a stand-still.
Klinglers have brought down the prices
of Flour and Feed and will keep them
down. Why f To induce people to buy
home products and keep Butler money in.
Butler where it belongs.
We have made the prices that will sell
the goods, keep oar mills in operation and
onr men employed.
Every new customer we get i-- another
recruit to the army of workers f l)r "the in
terests of Butler To buy Western Flour
and Feed, is to send money away never to
tret back. That made the' United States
poor—sending gold to Europe and not get
ting any in return.
Because, it makes the purest and best
bread and pays the Butler farmer for his
whent. and the Butler mechanic for his
v. i the Butler manufacturer for op
• nichinery.
Because it brings the greatest good to
the greatest number.
nrT SNOW DRIFT pr.orß.
Because you can rave from 2o to4o cents
a sack.
Get "a card" and seo how much change
you will get back from a dollar, when you
buy a sack of Snow Drift. But remember,
yon not only get wholesale prices on Snow
Drift, when you hare "a card," but on
every other flour, and on all the feed and
graiu and other things we make and han
dle. We hnqe the finest Corn Meal, Cereal
Goods and Salt ever put on the market.
The "card" gives you the privilege of buy
