Ad for Bulte’s Best Flour, Skidmore New Era, October 29, 1908, p. 4.

Large ad is illustrated with a sack of Bulte’s Best flour. The advertisement reads, “You never heard of its equal. Here is a proposition that is within the reach of us all — not one can afford to ignore it. Here it is: We will give a $2.00 framed picture for 35 cents to customers purchasing $2.00 worth of merchandise. We have a beautiful collection of pictures to choose from. Come and examine them and convince yourself that this is the best proposition you ever heard of. Before you buy your winter caps we want you to see our line. Think of a good heavy cap, fur lined for 25 cents. They won’t last long at that price. We have a big lot of Sweaters that we are offering at half price. Those Misses’ and Ladies’ union suits at 25 cents to 60 cents are going fast. Better hurry if you want to take advantage of these prices. Good flour and good bread go hand in hand. We have the good flour and you can make the good bread if you have Bulte’s Best Flour. It’s always good! Barrett, Stoolfer & Owens, The Store of the People.”
