He originally emigrated from a Valarious Point on Salt Creek in Brown county. He had t enjoyed a Good old fashioned wrestle with the a a shaking Ager a during his sojourn in Texas and his heart but More particularly his liver yearned Tor the jaundice Days of the Long ago. The idea of a Man going from Texas to Brown county in the dead of Winter he said lie was a Democrat Greenbacker. A Arnet Owens Dow a member of the Indiana Senate from Warren and Fountain counties was prostrated with Haemorrhage of the lungs one Day last week.

A it will be remembered that the tree tops in the court House Yard had grown so High that when in full Leaf last summer it was very difficult to see the face of the town clock.

Brown who resides near White Hall lost a pocket Book some two months ago and suspicion fell upon persons who were thought to have been in Luck.

A Patent right men Are u ticker n fiddlers in Helto Osville a at present. Be sure you Are right before you go into the Patent right business and then Don t do it. A Thomas hash is a bully boy out in the Eastern Edge of Salt Creek township and for several years an indictment for carrying concealed weapons has been standing against him but he has avoided arrest. Bunday a week deputies Strong and Reeves went to the neighbourhood and found hash at Church he showed fight and declared he could not be taken but the officers placed the bracelets on his wrists and landed him in Castle Grimes. In the Parley which occurred preceding the arrest hash swore like a pirate in Church and Bis Mother interfered whacking Strong with her clinched fist. It would be a Good joke on some of those people if they were compelled to answer for their interference. A Burdette had an overflowing House tuesday evening of last week to hear him lecture. He was afterwards entertained by the Phi Kappa is u College society at the residence of b. F. Adams. If the people will give Villa As Large an audience they will exhibit a proper appreciation of a worthy performance.

A Cut was made across the Back of his hand near the wrist then the revolving knives seemed to run under and Cut the flesh Loose Down to the Knuckles throwing a great Flap Over. The wound was promptly dressed by competent physicians and it is believed that the Bones and leaders Are not injured. A very few people in Bloomington realize the wonderful strides manufacturing establishments Are taking in this place. The spoke factory is running night Aud Day the plow factory is working All the hands that can be crowded into their buildings while at the Bedstead factory of showers Bros the business has been trebled in the last twelve months. These enterprises grow so gradually that people residing in the town do not realize the change that is taking place. A Snow begun falling again on saturday morning on a solid bed of ice with the thermometer at 20� above Zero. Snow has fallen every week during the past three months in this locality. A Dunn amp co. Lost about 1200 bushels of potatoes by freezing during the 18� below Zero weather. They represented just that Many dollars in the retail Market.

Charley Moore of Ellettsville has just purchased a Fine stallion and Many Farmers of this county ought to follow his example. A Congress is pounding away at the funding Bill and it is expected that they will pass a 3 per cent Short time Bond Bill. In Cincinnati and some other Large cities taxes Are three per cent., so that it is hardly possible that such Bonds will meet with ready Sale in highly taxed localities. A recorder Gilmore secured an order from the county commissioners last week to have a copy of the county papers procured for a file. The statute requires this and it is done in other counties even in Brown so that attorneys and others in search of Legal publications can find them in the proper office. Or. Gilmore is the first recorder to secure this much needed action on the part of the Board. A Bishop Littlejohn of Cambridge England is said to be quite a popular preacher though in this country Bishop Demijohn can Lay Over any preacher we know in Point of popularity. A occasionally the gummed direction tag get rubbed off of the Progress and the subscriber fulls to get i paper. A when this occurs cull promptly at the office before the extra copies Are exhausted. A oysters Cost eighty cents per dozen in England.

It was a great saving to fuel Consumers but continued Only a few Short a the Mendelssohn society celebrated its sixth anniversary of thursday night last at their Hall. After music toasts speeches and supper the president Hou. . Seward upon the part of the society presented to the directness , a very handsome Silver cake Basket and an elegantly bound album.

A Many Wagon loads of sugar buckets were hauled out of town by Farmers last week in anticipation of a Good run of sap. Dunn amp co. Alone sold 500 buckets saturday. A Francis ,of Smith Ville. Who left this county eleven years ago and was presumed to he dead and indeed was so declared in Law his estate having been administered upon arrived Here a week or so ago. He says he is a citizen of Missouri. A Matthew Mcphetridge made a Quick trip to Florida. He left Here on jan.10th, and returned last Friday 21st, having consumed but 11 Days in his visit. He remained 3 Days in Waldo fla., and then concluded to return to Indiana. The Day after his return saturday he purchased 27 acres of ground adjoining the farm he recently sold and known As the and. Hemphill land paying therefor $1,000 Cash. A capt. Shoemaker and his pre script Ouist fari9, Are both suffering with severe colds. Shoemaker was confined to bed a portion of last week. A a Kahn amp Tanenbaum have sold Over seven Hundred overcoats this Winter. Every one of these Coats was warranted to fit like paper on the Wall. A if the Young men would devote is much time to getting up a string band us they do to working up the brass there might be some Money in it. A string baud could secure frequent employment. A Grady the Veteran circus Man is Here with a Hall show. Last night at Mendelssohn Hull he Gnevo nutty in the form of r gift distribution a number of useful articles such a brooms flour Corn meal Coffee Queens ure Etc.

A the $600 exemption act does not reach Back As some persons imagine see sec.15 and cover All former indebtedness. There is no emergency clause and the acts were not distributed till late in the summer of 1879. A the coloured Man and brother is rapidly superseding his White competitor As a Section hand on the . Amp c. Railroad. All the Section hands on the South end of the Rood will soon be coloured men at the ratio they Are now being employed. The Railroad men say they Are not Only reliable but efficient railroaders. It is now in order for senator Voorhees to ask for an investigation. A when or. Hervey returns from Europe whither he has gone to negotiate a loan for the building of his Road from Evansville to Indianapolis it is believed that he will make a proposition for running that Railroad through this county. It remains to be seen if our people will Theu Settle Down in their old fog boots and let the last Opportunity pass by. The majority of the present Board of commissioners Are democrats but they Are inclined to be progressive and up with the times and if three or four old hard shells would leave these men to consult their own sense of right there would be no difficulty about securing favourable action for Road building at their bands. The trouble with the majority of county commissioners is that they Are always looking Forward to 6ome better office and Are often afraid to vote a tax for some needed improvement for fear that it May endanger their chances. No Naan who has held the office of commissioner in Mouroe county has Ever been elected to a higher office they have been too much afraid perhaps to put themselves on record a9 progressive men. We do not believe that either or. Walker or John Huntington Are office seekers in the common accept Ion of the term and have Faith in their judgment should a proposition to build railroads come before them for decision. During the first four weeks of 6leighiug every imaginable vehicle was pressed into service but people seem to have been surf edited with this class of fun and the Sleigh ing has been reduced to Mere business transactions the hauling of Wood Staves ties Etc.

A a literary curiosity in the shape of a bound volume of almanacs eleven in number in As Many different languages has been issued for distribution among the editorial fraternity by Ayer amp co of Lowell mass. It is a curiosity in its Way and worthy the reliable and prompt paying firm that conceived it. A a a a John r. East was Over in Brown county last week making Legal arguments and Temperance speeches. A representative Buskirk came Home saturday. He is looking Well. A after or. Mcpheeters had reduced the dislocation in win. Farmers shoulder they got into the Doc terms Sleigh and started for or. Farmers Home in the country. On the Way the Sleigh was overturned and both doctor and patient were thrown out. Then when within a Nile of or. Farmers Home some of the attachments gave Way and the horse left the Sleigh. Farmer notwithstanding his bad Luck was in town last saturday. A Yockey of the Bedford Banner came up to this City on the 12 m. Train and returned on the 4 . Train saturday. He seemed dazed by the bustling activity of City life but secured the plans for a building like that of Langley s standing against the Mullikin Block and will erect another opera House in Bedford. A corpulent and Fleshy men took the Middle of the streets last week. A Fitzpatrick i9 moving his Saloon and fixtures to Spencer ind. Geiger has removed to Redford. Bloomington sends out other graduates besides those that go from the University. A Sprague s Georgia minstrels Are being billed for a performance in this place. This is the troupe that Baa the Fine bras9 band was Here last May. A a brakeman named Austin was caught Between the bumpers while coupling a freight train at the depot monday and shockingly crushed. Agnes Wallace another Good audience was in attendance at the opera House last night to witness the second appearance of the Wallace Villa troupe in our City. One noticeable feature in the audience was that most of Tho persons who were in attendance on tuesday evening were present a gain last Naglit and from Tho comments on All sides the second evening was As enjoyable As the first.
