The Unsealed Return.
The attention of all election boards in
the county is called to the fact that the law
requires tliern to send two returns to the
Prothonotary of the County—one seale<l
for use by the Court, anil one unsealed
for general inspection. We hope that all
the boards will not forget this —the un
sea'ed return—as it is from them that
the newspaper men aecure their news of
the election.

On the way to vote,

town is that of the
just erected over the windows of the col

by about three feet in height, and was
built of Cheny that has been in stock in
Batler for 20 years. The letters were cut
ont of the same wood, are raised abont an
inch and are painted in silver white, while
the background is sand black. It is a very
large and attractive sign, and is indicative
of the prosperity of one of the beat institu
tions in Butler.
—A visitor who has just returned from

live a yoar on a single blade of grass was
turned into that yard to hint an existence
it wonld die of starvation. The lawn in

There are bad church members; wherefore

immorality in some schools; must we
therefore abolish education T And thero
are wimen who ache for notoriety; must
we therefore banish from the road all
modest women who use the wheel for
pleasure or exercise!—' Thero is a tendency
in opposing some new things to raise the
ory of immorality. To the puro all things
are pure.—lmmorality comes from tho
heart, not from using any of the good gifts
of nature, art or invention.
—Young men who prepose practicine

major and the coraco-brach (a small at
tachment of the muscular process operat
ing the acapnia or shoulder blade, in giv
ing the arm the wide swing this curve re
quires), the infraspinatus (muscles lying
beneath the thorny protrusions of the lat
ter bono and affected by a necessary twist
of the full ;srm) and the ulnir (muscla
which operates the under and larger of the
two bones of the forearm) in its special
application to this effective delivery. So
don't do it. Confine yourself to the in
curvo and the drop.

Your self interest
when rightly considered, never
fails to put you in the way of
gain, that is, to decide whether
doing this or that will pay
best, whether buying there or
here will get you the nice choice
Dry Goods at the least prices.
You'd naturally expect us to say
this was the best store to buy at,
but when we gather together such
large collections of
SILKS and cold weather wraps
as you'll find here this 1896, and
submit them all to your self inter
est for consideration, and only ex
pect your business when you're
satisfied you'll actually, save
money by buying here, you'll soon
be convinced that there's an un
usual earnestness about merchan
dising at this store that's bound
to interest you, that business is
sought not by talk, argument or
big store statistics, but by the
fairest test, as concerns your self
interest, that's possible, and
what's more, we're not seeking it
that way in vain, as the business
doing here now and the goods and
prices with which we're after more,
will abundantly prove.
And now, this Dry Goods buy
ing time of the year, there's not a
tiling in this store but what it's to
your personal concern to find out
about and test as to advantage at
the prices.
American dress goods 15c to 45c a
yard. More fine choice Novelty Wool
ens at sf>c, 75c, 85c, SI.OO than we ever
had, and that's the kind most people are
buying, widths range from 42 to 54
inches. Samples of any of these, or of
new Black Goods or Silks, sent free if
you ask. The new Catalogue is ready,
goes free also, will tell about the
Hardly i« v_luU of gaiu.t.'iit Tor lauies,
Misses or childrens but what's here, the
best of the kind to be had, and all
bought well and sold at fair small profit
prices that are convincing.
Boggs & 811111,
Why He Figures
it takes figuring just at this time
to make both ends meet, and now
winter is almost here and you
must be prepared for bad weather.
You Must Have Good Footwear
you want to buy it cheap, not too
cheap for at this time of the year
it tnusv be good. We can't praise
our fall stock too highly for never
before have we been in shape to
offer high grade footwear at such
low prices as we are now.
