Springfield the Best Place for Health and for Business.

Three years ago John Coombs and family left Springfield for Lawrenceburg, in Lawrence county, expecting to make a fortune in a short time, but while the people down there are pleasant, the land is not up to the modern standard of excellence such as that which surrounds Springfield.
