We have a full line of flen’s suits and overcoats bought and contracted for before we decided to close out.
We cbuld not countermand tlfcrder. We were compelled to take thefti and a full order of clothing is always a
large bill which makes it harSI for us to close out. But we must do it. We must yet have our stock reduced

Speaking of records. Well, the fu*
siooist would like to quit. Stop, if
you please. But they spoke of records.
Voters, how is this? In 1895 we owed
a county debt of $34,852. and only
made an 18 mill levy for the countv
purposes. In 1896 there was elected
a fusion board of countv commissioners
During the year 1897 we found the
debt had increased about $6,(MX), or a
total debt of $40,139, and the fusion
board fbr county purposes nearly
trebled the levy, making it 41 mills.
In the year of 1899 we had elected a
Republican board and from the enor-
mous debt which bad beep contracted
they found, by careful and economical
management, that 89 per cent mill
levy was sufficient ana reduced the
debt over $10,000. So that from that
period until the present time we have
had a Republican board and manage-
ment, and during the present fiscal
year we find we have a total indebted-
ness of $49,660, with $3,467 in the treas-
ury toapplyontbe same, leaving a
debt of about $46,196. The present
board made a levy of 20 mills for
county purpose!, a reduction of over
one-half of what the reform fusion
board levied, and additional levy of
3 mills for a county jail, 3 mills for
bridges, and 1 mill for separate schools
a total of 27 milla. Under a fusion
board the warrants under a high mill
levy were worth omly from 39 to 50 per
cent of their face Yalue, while under
a 27 mill levy, they&re worth 100 cents
on the dollar. The Republican board
has paid for your courthouse and lots,
built bridges, improved roads and ran
the affairs of the county to the best
interest of the tax-payers, and should
the administration succeed in collect-
ing to per cent of the delinquent tax
unpaid, the county would not owe a
