Thomas Withers, Itvlim in one end of the. old lo liousc.'uppositi! where the Weathorfonl Hotel now stands, brouuht on a small stock of goods, usine, the other end of bis dwelling for bis store. Tom got some notoriety by making a remark that tlie peoplo o'f .v village only drank coll'ee ' " I once a week, and that on Sunday morn inc, and that tho women never wore anything costlier than a blue calico drew. A short horso Is soon curried. He didn't hUv long. Tom Nail, an old citizen, was n tl'no artist. He could enliven you with brlcht, cheering feelings, as well as to brighten your with beautiful, britsht colors. H. Y. Coleman, an old citizen and n saddler by trade, whose face mid whole hcini! reflected In tegrity and honesty, was a good citi.en for many years. A Jew by the name of Kahn, nnd h very line cabinet maker, was n citizen for several years, but after he cleaned out and had eaten up all the old gecso and ducks in the Hurg and left for a wanner Jewish clime. Ruby and Samuel llocker, cabinet work men, and John Welsh, a saddler by trade, all young men and very line mechanics and citizens for years. We have a specimen of Welsh's work now in tho shape of a pair of saddlebags, half n century old nnd good yet. Valises, &c, were hardly known in that day, and these b.ti, being our bit invalid, were used a long time, as our traveling kit.

Two of IVgraiu's soldiers seeing Foley on a horse trying to get out of town, gave chase, at the same time tiring scv' eral shots in the air to accellerate spetM in tho chase. Foley, howcer, beat the race, but came oil minus a satchel of clothing, strewed along the road for near a utile. "Hod," exclaimed Foley, on 'coming home tho next day, "it was a narrow escape, wasn't it?" I Mil Jones and H union Weathei ford soil goods in tho Weatherford House for a year or two. Portinnn Held built n good opposite where the Mimonlc hall now stands, and dida thriv ing business for several years. Wright t lirovvn opened a up n store in tliu ohl store-house opposite Cooper's tavern and 1 1 after running alout a year increased , tbiir company as well as their stock oi goods, making a kind of family concern, with eight or nine pnituent. The object of tills family tlrm was to get their goods, at prime cost, as they supposed, lhit 5 tit' tiling did not meet their expectations j and consequently didn't last long. We had well nigh overlooked the j brated firm of George Iturton, Cooper .& JXuigherty, the last two named, with , "William Hurtou, were just home froui I "the Mexican war. Daugherty was the , captain of our hoys. The company wore j volunteers, all of. whom, we buliove, were ralied in Lincoln and Casey counties. On starting to tho seat of war our ous and patriotic citi.ons made up mon ey and furnished nil of our boys with blue suits for the campaign, and after thoy returned from tho war all loaded with valorous honors, this firm, as o business house, was very popular, and nil linn of the town in their day.

This sketcli brings us in our narrations to a period near the breaking out of the late civil wnr, where we expected to close our series of sketches. ' Jf we have given any light or comfort to the reader in relation to West Lincoln, we are more than paid for our labor.
