Old Glory

Weekly Perryville Union
Perryville, Missouri, Friday, 02 September 1870


LOCAL DEPARTMENT

MARRIED, at Wittenberg, Mo., on the 26 ult., by Esquire Estel, Mr. Henry Farmer to Miss Artemissia Alister, both of Grand Tower, Ills.

REGISTERING. -- Let our readers remember the days on which registering of voters will commence in their respective election precincts, and be on hand to register themselves, that they may be able to cast their votes on the first of November next.

DOERR & BROTHERS. -- In to-day's paper will be found a new advertisement from the above firm. Read it. --- They offer goods at remarkable low figures, so don't fail to give them a call and examine their goods and compare prices. They guarantee good bargains to all who patronize them.

PEACHES. -- yes, peaches made their appearance in our market last Saturday for the first time this season. Unfortunately we did not have the pleasure of seeing any of them, but several of our citizens did. They were grown up on the farm of Mr. Alex. French, who resides on the Saline.

RAPID WORK. -- We are informed that Henry G. Kiesler & Co. put up over two hundred feet of lightning rod in Saline township from four o'clock on Tuesday evening up to half past three o'clock on Wednesday evening of this week. Good work.


PAINTING UP. -- Fritz Springer is busy engaged in painting the wood work of the German Catholic Church of our town, which helps the appearance of it very much.

Mr. James Burgee is having his residence nicely painted by Mr. Myers, who is doing good work.


A SAD ACCIDENT. -- Just as we go to press we learn that some strangers who had got off a steamboat at the Chester ferry landing, on the Missouri side, on Sunday last met with a deplorable fate. It appears that they had camped near the landing under some large trees. During Sunday night a heavy storm came up, the wind blowing terrific, when a large tree was blown down, which fell upon one of the men killing him almost instantly. The deceased was removed to Chester, where he was buried, on Monday.


PERSONAL. -- Mr. John C. Doerr returned home from St. Louis last Sunday, where he had been purchasing a stock of merchandize.

J. C. Killian, Luke J. Hucheson and Henry Favell, delegates to the Radical State Convention, left town for Jefferson City on Monday last.

Mr. William Litsch, and his eldest daughter and Miss Julia Berhle, left Perryville for the city of St. Louis on Tuesday afternoon. The young ladies go there to attend school during the coming year.

Mr. John B. Cashion left for St. Louis on Tuesday.Rev. Father Blume and Mr. Frank Cobbs returned home on Tuesday morning.

Mr. William Vineyard and Mr. John Young and lady of Chester, Ills., visited our town on Tuesday.

J. C. Doerr & Bros have just received another large and new stock of Dry Goods, Notions, Ribbons, &c. which they will sell cheaper than ever. Drop in ladies and take a peep for yourselves.


CANDIDATES ANNOUNCEMENTS. -- It will be seen by to-day's paper that another name has been added to our list of candidates, that of our friend John J. Seibel, who seems willing to take his turn at "Sweeping out the office", provided the people see fit to authorize him to do so at the next election. We would say to the rest of the candidates who have not yet been to see us, come right along. "For delinquent on the printer's books can never enter heaven."

In this issue will also be found the announcement of Joseph Greenwell, Esq., as a candidate for Justice of the County Court. Mr. Greenwell has been holding the office of Justice of the Peace for eight or ten years, which has enabled him to acquire a knowledge of law, which will render him fully competent to discharge the duties of the office to the interest of the people and a credit to himself.

It will also be seen that Mr. Thomas A. Davis informs the people of Perry county that he is a candidate for Justice of the County County [Court], and if elected will do his whole duty as such.

A FINE SPAN OF HORSES

made a good deal finer by going to J. B. Campbell's New Saddle shop and Dressing them up with leather, at prices that cannot be grumbled at.

A HAPPY FAMILY. -- We have heard the remark that if you want good, sweet bread in the family, you must have a good natured and even tempered cook to make it. As an additional aid, we would recommend the unrivaled Charter Oak Cooking Stove, which will insure the happy owner not only a well-cooked, palatable meal, but also a contented and cheerful wife.
7 Pounds of the best New Orleans Sugar for $1 at Furth's. Use it to sweeten his 4 pounds for a dollar Coffee. Worsted dress goods at 20 cents a yard. Splendid Flannels at 35 cents per yard. Good fitting Corsets for $1.
