Ira MacIntire’s house begins to assume an appearance not surprassed by many residence in town.

Fred Klope has put up a pair of hay-scales near his store, and is prepared to make proper estimates at all times.

A pleasant party was that enjoyed by a few of the young people of this place at the resident of Mr. W. S. Covill, last Monday evening.

A.W. Loy is doing good work on the roads and streets. One important improvement he has made is in opening up and turnpiking the street west of Main street.

John Owens, of the town of Grant, living a short-distance from this place, had a leg broken below the knee, last Wednesday, by a falling tree. Dr. Crandall dressed the limb, and pronounces it a bad fracture - one that will disable his for the balance of the summer. Mr. Owens is very poor, and has a large family depending upon his labor for support. He is an industrious, hard-working man and is deserving of the sympathy he receives in his misfortune.

Walter Kimball has opened a Meat Market, east of the O’Neill House, and is prepared to furnish all who may favor him with their patronage with as good meats as can be found in the market.

Under the management of Mr. O. P. Wells the Rossman House is growing in favor with the public, and is receiving a fair share of the public patronage. We now have two good hotels in this village.

Mrs. H. J. Hoffman is visiting relatives and friends in this place.

Andrew Papendick advertises an Indian pony in to-day’s Press, which he is anxious to have removed from his premises.

The Clark County Stage Company now keep their stock in the born formerly occupied by Capt. Tolford as a livery stable.

The Church festival at Mrs. Geo A. Austin’s last Wednesday evening was well attended, and a general good time was the result.

Mrs. T. Johnson died at her residence, in this village, on Thursday last, at 1 o’clock PM and was buried on Friday afternoon.

Last week Mr. John S. Dore lost a valuable short-horn cow, full blood, for which he paid an enormous price, last season, for the purpose of improving his stock.

Mrs. Selves, a lady living about four miles east of this place, had a leg broken below the knee, last Saturday. The injury was caused by a fall, while playing with her children.

C. M. Miller, so long connected with the stage business in this county, and for the past six months with the Greenwood line, exclusively, has sold that line to John Arquette, and retired from the business. Mr. Miller intends giving his attention to the pursuits of agriculture, for the present, in opening up and farther improving his farm near the village of Loyal. If as successful as a farmer as he was in the business from which he has retired he cannot fail.

The opening dance at the O’Neill House last Friday evening, by Mr. and Mrs. Jas. H. Reddan, was one of the best parties ever given at that house. About fifty couples were in attendance, and a general good time was the result. The music and supper was all that could be asked, and dancing was kept up until after day light. All who participated expressed themselves highly pleased with the entertainment.
