Our neighboring Tillage of

moving straight forward in the
way of material improvement.
Mr. Oh me r has lately laid out
an addition to 'the town ot

which he is disposing of rapid

who wish to build. Mr.'L. 8

John Workman and Ran

dwelling houses in Ohmer's ad

completed three new houses

new and handsome 'business
house on the old sitn. A new
Methodist parsonage, dwell

Mr. Cobb, and Jesse Geary are

are under contract, but we
could not learn the names of

improvements are In progress
indicating the prosperity or
the town. John Wilcox is re
modeling bis dwelling house,
paint brushes are being liro't
in requisition, there bas been
a general brushing up, and sev
eral hundred shade trues have
been planted, nearly all of
which are living.'
Prominent among the good
features of our neighbor is the
American House, kept by those
princes of landlords, Messrs Fox
& Gartright. The American is
a favorite with the traveling
publio for its fine accommoda
tions, and cleanly, homelike
fare, for which due credit is al

S. F. Cramer is growing fit
ter than over on a good trade
and plenty of work in the sad
lery and harness busiuess. In
creasing iron and ore business
has materially increased his bus
iiiness, and he proves himself
equal to the occasion and pre
pared for all the trade that may
come io his line.
D.wn on the corner we
found our old friend R. S. Wil
cox and a store full of custom
ers, all being made happy in
new suits of clothing, boots,
shoes, dress goods, and sub
stantial lor the inner man, as
well. Mr. Wilcox has' formed a
partnership with John Ogier
under the firm name ot R. S.
Wilcox & Co, and they are
driving a thriving business, be
ing compelled to run three
clerks most of the lime, be
sides giving customers their
personal attention. Their store
room is large and handsomely
finished in black walnut and
white pine, varnished in the
natural colors of the wood, pro
ducing a beautiful effect. But
what pleases the publio the
most is the well filled shelves
and counters, embracing ev
ery' variety of goods from the
plainest to the most rich an I
elegant, with all intermediate
grade to be found ia the mar
ket. We found them selling
the best brands of calico at 11
cents; best brown muslin 12
cents; best Rio coffee 25 cent-;
A coffee sugar, 12 rents, and
other goods proportionately
low. buch prices can not fail
to attract trade and prosperity
to the firm.
In noting the evidences of
prosperity in Ilamd?nwe al
most lorgot to mention the
new stone coal furnace near
the town' on the larm of Mr.
Dempsev. It is in rapid prog
ress of erection, and the de
livery oi ore has commenced.
Altogether our neighbor has
reason to teel proud of her
present prosperity, and hope

A lecture delivered recently
at Cleveland by the President of
the Brewer's Association of the
United States, is attracting con
siderable attention. He takes
the ground that beer is the
healthiest drink made or brewed
by man, giving both physical
and mental activity, and cites as
proof the German nation at pres
ent, and the golden age of Eng.
lish literature when ale was the
national drink of that coun,try
Impressed. with the facts conveyed
in this lecture, or something else,
J. G. Sweatland k Son have con
cluded to experiment on enerva
ated humanity in this section,
and have built a mammoth re
frigerator large enough to hold
a barrel of ale, two kegs of beer
four dozen bottles of mineral
water, and five-hundred pounds
of ice. If there is any virtue in
Gambrious' . favorite beverage,
it surely Can' be' extracted from
such an icebergas this.
