The good times are coming and don’t you forget it.
A fine sidewalk has been constructed on the two street sides of Perry & Russell’s grocery.
Mr. Mosser, the excellent blacksmith, who has been with J.H. Hoch for a long time, has moved to Elk, Chase County, where he will open a shop of his own. He is a good workman and a good fellow.
Will D. McBurney was elected second lieutenant of Company G, Saturday evening, to fill the vacancy made by the resignation of Brown Corby.
The omission of the little word “Not” in Wheeler Bros. advertisement last week made them say that their shirts, overalls, jeans, pants, jackets, etc., “will rip,” and brought Bert down here with blood in his eye. This apology is to save our scalp.

The Rock Island freight from the south and the Santa Fe freight from the west collided at the crossing of the two roads in this city last Monday afternoon. The Rock Island train was about half way across the crossing when the Santa Fe ran into it, turning over three or four cars and tearing up the track generally. No one was injured.
