May 2, 1878
is getting to be a grange town so
far as feeding hogs is
concerned. Every one who has room for
a few keeps some, Mr
J.P. Rumble has about forty, Messrs.
Goodsill Bros, Anderson
& Co, forty, Mr J.W. Moser about thirty,
Mr A.A. Irving, sixty,
Mr O.J. Eoff, sixty, and other small lots
are scattered about two
numerous to mention.
The merchants all seem
to be busy --doing nothing. Mr Luke
Shay of Ringgold, shipped
a lot of hogs and cattle on Tuesday, and
Mr D. Brower also shipped
two car loads of cattle.
Mr W.W. Clark, of the
Bedford Mills was here on Tuesday looking
up a site for a grist
mill. He proposes to move the mill from Bedford here
if Conway and vicinity
will loan him one thousand dollars for two
years without interest,
to be secured by first mortgage on the mill.
Conway wants the mill
and thinks it will raise the money. A meeting
is to be held to consider
The telephone is "busted."
The whole line is down and if we want
with any one now, we just have to halloo. The
schools are progressing
finely. As D.B.M., of Jackson twp says, there
are no births or marriages
to record this week, but I hope there will be some of the former soon.
We haven't seen anything
of your escaped jail birds up this way. They
may be where Hutson's
Conway you know very
well is one station this side of --Lenox.
