Butterbaugh & Shaffer have moved their harness and buggy store one door east of Jennings' grocery where you will find them with a full line of harness and buggies. They are offering special inducements and will save you a good per cent in anything in their line. Save money by seeing them before you buy. ...

Our customers are taking advantage of the special bargains we offer since moving in our new room. We sold a nice carriage, two buggies, six sets of harness and a lot of fine dusters, nets and whips on Monday and Tuesday. Remember the place, G.A.R. building, Butterbaugh & Shaffer.

To the Public.
Having purchased the interest of my partner, W.E.
