Old Glory

Weekly Perryville Union
Perryville, Missouri, Friday, 08 November 1872


COUNTY COURT was in session this week.

DR. A. D. PENNEY will visit Perryville on the 5th of December

CIRCUIT COURT adjourned on Friday of last week. It was in session nearly two weeks.

BURNED. -- James R. Duvall lost his residence and its contents by fire one day last week. It was a total loss.

RAIN. -- The people in this portion of God’s vineyard were blessed with an abundance of rain this week. -- Something we stood badly in need of. We have water now.

REV. E. BLUME, formerly the pastor of the German Catholic Church of this place, but who quite recently took charge of a church at Palmyra, Mo., is reported dead.

A CORRECTION. -- We made several errors in our last issue, and among them one in regard tot he change of Methodist minister here. Rev. G. W. Hill fills the place of Andrew Peace and not of Rev. J. B. Daniel.

HOUSE BURNED. -- A large house occupied by Mr. Face, was burned in Ste. Marys one day last week. We understand it was a hotel. A little child narrowly escaped from the burning house. We have not learned the amount lost, or whether it was insured.

CHESTER TRIBUNE. -- We have received a copy of a newspaper bearing the above name, published in Chester, Illinois, by Messrs. Knapp & Wassell. It is well edited and neatly printed. In politics it is Republican. Pecunniarily, we wish it success.

A LARGE YIELD. -- Mr.. Vincent Hagan, and enterprising farmer of this county, raised nine hundred and twenty bushels of corn on ten acres this year. Can anybody in Southeast Missouri, or in the State, beat this? If they can, we should like to know it. This is over ninety bushels to the acres.

MR. FRANK RICE died at his residence in Perryville, at 3 o’clock on Wednesday evening last in the 40th year of his age. A good, honest and worthy citizen has bid adieu to earth and earthly cares, and his soul returns to Him who gave. To mourn his absence from the family circle he leaves a wife and several children and many relatives and friends to mourn his lost from the community.

DEPARTED THIS LIFE, on the morning of the 6th inst., of chronic diarrhea, Mr. Bernard Cissell, in the 52d year of his age. Mr. Cissell was borned [sic] and raised in this county. In the early part of his life he taught school for a livelihood, but having become tired of this, he quit it, and embarked in the mercantile business, in which trade he remained in up to 1864, and was quite successful, having amassed a fortune. --

Some several years since the subject of this notice commenced the practice of law, which profession he followed up to his late illness. He was ever prompt and honest in all his business transactions, and was much respected by those who knew him. He leaves behind to mourn his loss a wife and five children, many relatives, and a large circle of friends.
