A.J. Wickman has rented the vacant store under the Bell opera house, which he has made headquarters for the distribution of binder twine.
G.L. Adams would promote them in the local section, especially since they would run paid advertisements elsewhere in the paper. One such article, found in an 1896 issue, read, Wickman & Minkley have a new illustrated advertisement this week which will attract your attention. Their goods and prices will also attract your attention if you call on them. They would also advertise "hot weather shoes" -- whatever those were -- sandals?
I may find, as I continue to go through research materials, Wickman and Minkley went into further business enterprises and were still at the same location into the 1900s.
