I.T. BRANIGAN RETIRES.
Disdoses [Disposes?] Of His General
Store to M.J. Martin, and will Engage in Farming.
A deal was consumated last Friday whereby I.T. Branigan traded
his stock of general merchandise to M.J. Martin, for a farm in Elk township. Mr.
Branigan will retire from the mercantile business and take up farming. He has
been engaged in business in this city for many years and had built up an
extensive and profitable trade.
Mr. Martin was a resident of Loraine until last December, when
he moved to this city. He is a young man of good business instincts and will no
doubt extend the large trade built up by his predecessor. His brother, P.J.

sanitariums are in operation there. In this new field Dr. Walker will find
opening for his skill that will no doubt land him on the top rung of the ladder
in his profession. He is a young man of remarkable ability, and has already
achieved a measure of fame that falls to the lot of but few men at his time of
life. During his residence in Worthington he has acquired a host of friends,
who, while deeply regretting his departure, will wish him every success in his
