Tony had been over in the Lowe and Grcencreek vicinities looking for a suitable place to put in a stock of mer chandise. He has not definitely decided I on a location as yet.

Mrs. <ioldstone's mother, Mrs. Binnard, is rapidly failing from heart disease and it was thought necessary to call Mr. and Mrs. Goldstone, as it is hard to deter mine whether Mrs. Binuuid will survive the latest attack. We hojie that she will be.in her former good health when \vé hear of her state again. Some of the hoys are going over to Sunnyside next Sunday to plav hall wil.li the team at that place. Why don't you got together, hoys, and organize u regular nine.

It would take 10 () trains, eon sist'ng of 22 cars each to transport the capital stock were it all in silver bul lion, and each car would have to aver-! age 80,000 pounds, J. P, Morgan, John D. Rockefeller.-Charles Steele and sey end other millionaires aie the main stockholders, A\ ho is going to give that dance when the spring work is done? Wo under stand that owing to a misunderstanding between two of our, best organizations the two last dances in this city did not materialize as well as they should under ordinary ci nm instances, but that this misunderstanding has recently been ree tilled. The next time a dance (or any thing for the public . amusement or good) is gotten up, let. us show our friendly feeling toward one another and our interest in the community by all sticking together.
