Perryville, Missouri, Friday, 14 November 1873
F9 yards of the best Calicoca for one dollar at Furth.
THE WHEAT, in this county, so we learn, is in a flattering condition -- looking well.
GRAVELLING. -- We notice that the street running along the south side of the public square, is being gravelled. We understand that one or two other streets in town are to be treated likewise.
FHeavy plaid flannels only 35 cents per yard, and good Jeans 35 to 40 cents per yard; best at 65 cents per yard at Furth’s.
MR. H. C. UNDERWOOD has just purchased the Charleston (Mississippi county, Mo.) ourier, and has assumed the editorship of the same. Mr. Underwood has, for a number of years, been connected with the press of Louisville, Ky., and is spoken of as a fine writer. We wish him success in his new field of operations.
A NEW TOWN. -- Capt. C. C. Williams, of Chester, Illinois, ws in Perryville on Tuesday last. The Captain is locating a new town opposite of the Chester Ferry Landing, and has just laid off forty-eight town lots, which are selling like hot cakes. These lots are selling at low figures, and as that point must eventually become quite business place, we would advise parties to make purchases of Capt. Williams. The Iron Mountain and Chester Railroad will soon be completed to opposite Chester, and it is probable that a good macadamize road will be constructed from Perryville to that place, hence that town, at no distant day, will become an important business point.
