A CHANGE. -- Mr. William Holtman now occupies the Gabriel End building on the west side of the public square.

PERSONAL. -- Judge Robinson left for Fredericktown last Sunday morning to hold the Madison county circuit court, which commenced last Monday.

BRICK KILN. -- Mr. John C. Popp has just finished burning a kiln of one hundred and fifty thousand brick and they are represented to be a superior article.

FOOT CUT. -- Mr. John O. Brewer while lately engaged hewing logs for Mr. Montgomery, five miles northwest of Perryville, accidentally cut one of his feet quite badly.

ON THE MOVE. -- Several movers passed through Perryville since our last issue, wending their way for the southwestern counties of the State, where they expect to make their future home.

DR. J. W. FUTRELL. -- This gentleman's card will be found in another column of this issue of the Union. He comes among us well recommended, and solicits a share of the patronage of the public. Give him a call.

BROKE HIS NECK. -- Last Saturday a fatal accident occurred in our neighboring county across the river. Mr. Joseph Armour, while on the road between Sparta and Eden, was thrown from his wagon, and had his neck broken.

HUNT YOUR GREENBACKS. -- Mr. John C. Doerr, our gentlemanly collector, started out on Monday last on a collecting tour, in the very best of humor, and the tax payers will doubtless shell out punctually as they ought to.

NEW STOVES. -- Mr. Otto C. Nabert our accommodating tinner, has just received a large supply of new cooking and heating stoves, which he intends to sell at bottom prices. If you want to save money be sure to give him a call.

Married, on the 22d of September, 1875, by Mr. James M. Warren, Mr. Henry Smith to Miss Sarah E. Spray.

THE PUBLIC SCHOOL. --The Perryville public school will open next Monday morning, and a session of eight months will be taught. Mr. David W. Crow takes charge of the higher department, and Miss Crosby will assume the duties of the primary department. Both are competent teachers.

COTTON. -- Perry county does not only grow excellent wheat, corn and other cereals, but can make a pretty good showing in the way of producing cotton. Mr. Wm. H. Hoskins, residing nine miles east of Perryville, has cotton growing upon his farm this year, the stocks of some of which measures five and a half feet in height, and well filled with cotton. Can anybody hereabouts beat it?

COMPLIMENTARY. -- We have received complimentary tickets to the Ste. Genevieve County Agricultural fair, also to the Cape Girardeau fair, and also to the St. Louis fair, and had we the time should be more than pleased to attend them, but the crowd of business will prevent us from doing so. These fairs, however, will be well represented by Perry county, as some of our citizens will certainly attend them.

BIRTHS. -- A little boy stopped at the residence of Mr. Vincent Layton not far from Silver Lake one day last week.

A little girl called at the home of Mr. Frank Turlen, three miles west of Perryville last Friday.

A great big, good looking boy stopped at the home of Col. R. M. Brewer five miles northwest of Perryville, on Tuesday morning last.

A little boy put in his appearance at the residence of Mr. George Difani's on Sunday last.

WILL IT PAY TO RAISE WHEAT? -- Last fall I sowed thirty-four acres in wheat, and from it received exactly by weight six hundred and seventeen bushels of wheat, which at $1.30 per bushel, yielded me just $802.10. Now the expenses is for seed $34, to sowing and harvesting $200.50, to stacking $20, to threshing $58, to conveying the same to market $60.70. This includes all necessary expenses, and I find that I have $328.90 left. Does raising this cereal pay?


FOUND DEAD. -- Mr. John Bienlein, residing about seven miles northeast of Perryville, has been keeping bachelor's hall for quite a while, he preferring to do so, hence lived alone. On Friday morning of last week, so we are informed, Mrs. Weidt had occasion to pass the residence of this gentleman, and when quite near it, made a noise in order to attract attention of the occupant, but receiving no answer concluded to enter the dwelling, when she discovered Mr. Bienlein sleeping the sleep that knows no waking. The coroner was at once notified of the fact, when a jury was summoned and a inquest held upon the body of the deceased, and a verdict rendered that he had died a natural death. The deceased was about sixty-eight years of age. He was born in Bavaria, Germany, in the year 1807, and emigrated to Perry county in 1840, and resided here up to the day of his death. He leaves four children and other relatives to mourn his death.
