[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. Martin will remain with him as head clerk, which will insure a continuance of profitable business.

Farewell Party.

The Knights and Ladies of the Maccabees this evening will give a farewell party jointly to Miss Mary Goodrich and Dr. F.E. Walker, when a very pleasant time is anticipated.

Miss Goodrich will leave shortly for California, with her father, who disposed of his personal property at auction last week. Miss Goodrich is an estimable young lady and has a large circle of friends whose best wishes she takes with her to her new home.

Dr. Walker has sold his interests here to his partner Dr. Geyerman, and will move to Hot Springs, S.D., where he has received an appointment as chief surgeon in the Lady of Lourdes Hospital, and he will also act as consulting surgeon to the Hot Springs Cancer Sanitarium and the Perry Nichols hospital. Hot Springs is rapidly becoming one of the most famous health resorts in the United States. The Federal Government is completing a $2,000,000 hospital for its disabled soldiers and sailors, and many other hospital and 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 new location.
