Old Glory

Weekly Perryville Union
Perryville, Missouri, Friday, 09 January 1874


HON A. G. ABERNATHY has left for Jefferson City to attend the Legislature.

FRANK SCHEIRING -- Read this gentleman’s advertisement in another column of this issue. He deals in furniture, coffins, &c.

DELPHEN CALLIER -- Read this gentleman's card in another part of the paper. He has something to say that may interest you.

BELL GONE. -- Our hotel keeper, Mr. Joseph Blechle, had his bell taken from the hotel on Wednesday night last. A mean piece of business.

HEAVY PORK. -- Our friend, Gabriel End, killed five hogs, fifteen months old, weighing in the aggregate, 1513 pounds net. How is this for high?

ALFRED BESANCON, while seated on a load of wood he was hauling in town last Monday, fell from the same to the ground, the wagon coming near passing over him. He was not badly hurt.

ERRORS. -- In our last issue several errors occurred, and among the, one occurred in a news item, which made it appear that twelve murders were committed on Christmas day in the county, when it should have been the country.

SOLD OUT. -- Mr. Robert M. Slaughter, of Ste. Marys, has sold out at that place to Mr. --- Sof, the latter gentleman having already taken charge of the warehouse. We understand that Mr. Slaughter will leave Ste. Marys for some other point in a short time. We are sorry to hear this. He is a clever gentleman, and has a host of friends in this section. We wish him success in whatever business he may embark in.

Died, on Friday morning the 2d of January, 1874 Mrs. Mary Karling, in the 65th year of her age. The deceased was born in Prussia in 1808, and emigrated to Perry county in 1847, where she has ever since resided. She leaves many relatives and friends to mourn her loss.

Died, on Monday afternoon, the 5th of January, 1874, at his residence, in Perryville, Mr. Peter Beinlein, in the 36th year of his age. -- He was a native of Bavaria, and emigrated to this country in 1840, and since that time has resided here. -- He leaves to mourn his loss, a wife, several children, relatives and acquaintances.

Died, on Tuesday night, the 30th of December, 1873, at her residence near Ste. Marys, Mrs. Mary F. McCauley, in the 25th year of her age. She leaves to mourn her demise, a husband, five children, mother and other relatives and friends.

Silver Wedding

Re-married, on Wednesday the 7th day of January, 1874, at ten o’clock in the forenoon, at the German Catholic Church, by Rev. Father Kleiser, Mr. Clemens Schindler to Mrs. Catherine Schindler. Mr. Fred. Schindler was the brideman and Miss Theresa Schindler the bride maid. This is their silver wedding, they having been married just twenty-five years.

There was a large attendance at the church to witness the ceremony, and after which the happy and twice married couple, with their friends, repared [sic] to Mr. Joseph Biehle’s hotel, where a sumptuous dinner was prepared and served at twelve o’clock. We must say that Mr. Blechle was well prepared for the occasion, and set on the table an excellent dinner, and plenty of it, too. The Perryville Brass Band was in attendance all the time of the marriage feast and played remarkably well, and added greatly to the pleasure of the silver wedding.

In the evening the dancing commenced, and continued until a late hour. All enjoyed themselves well, and there was no one present who did not feel the happier and better for being there.

Probate Court Proceedings

James L. Crow, administrator of the estates of James A. Burns, Matilda Taylor and Joseph DeLassus, was ordered to sell personal property at private sale in each estate.
