Our accommodating and wide awake merchant, J.A. Stokes is doing a fair business.  He keeps a well assorted stock and sells at bottom prices.
Col. W. H. Jesup has 50 acres of drilled corn bordering the Russellville road.  Its nodding plumes and waving banners proclaim an immense yield.  It is the finest piece of corn in the Grove.

The Progress has again received complaint from the citizens of Elkton concerning the promiscous shooting that is carried on on our streets after dark.  Tuedsay night two gentlemen were walking up Clarksville street, and when near Mrs. Miles' residence a pistol fired in front of them, and narrowly escaped killing one of the boys. This is a serious matter, and should not be permitted.
Major and Mrs. W. H. Jesup of Fairview, entertained last evening elegantly, complimentary to their daughter, Miss Sallie, and her guest, Miss Wood, of Clarksville.  Band from Hopkinsville furnished the music for the dancers, and refreshments of the richest and rarest were served.  This estimable pair, the clever Marjor and his good wife, can always be depended on to answer when the roll of hospitality is called.
P. Swan, the experienced and popular monument dealer at Nashville, has a card to the people of Todd county in The Progress this morning.  Mr. Swan has been engaged in the marble business for a quarter of a century, keeps up with his profession and carries all the latest and handsomest designs.  He is now executing an order for Capt. Bell, of Springfield, that is something handsome.
The Vanderbilt Training School of the Louisville Conference will open in this city the first Monday in September. Prof. R. E. Crockett, the accomplished Principal, called to see us yesterday and talked knowingly and pleasantly of the bright prospects of the Institution. Prof. Crockett is a graduate of Vanderbilt University and a teacher of experience, and proposes to make for our people a school of which we can be proud. Our readers will find in our business columns a card from Prof. Crockett.

Although this place is not be found on the map of Kentucky, it's a reality.  It is situated nearly equidistant between Elkton and Fairview immediately on the Russellville road.  It is surrounded by one of the finest farming sections in Southern Kentucky.
