RED PEPPER. -- Miss Martha Hagar, residing south of Perryville, presented us with a lot of pods of red pepper a few days ago, some of which measured four inches long. -- Can you do better?

     Baby buggy

SQUIRRELS. -- Mr. Anton Christenson, residing five miles northeast of Perryville, visited the woods a few days since in search of game, and after an absence of a few hours returned home with eighteen squirrels and he says it wasn't much of a day for killing squirrels either.

Married, by Squire V. P. Tucker, Mr. John Guaegy to Miss Elezabeth Lenz.

FUN. -- They had a fine time at Mr. Joseph Lukefahr's residence, five miles south of Perryville on Thursday of last week. During the day a considerable amount of work was done in the corn field, and at night dancing commenced and continued until a late hour, and a good time was the result.

The same kind of fun was had at Mr. Vincent Miles, a short distance west of Perryville last Tuesday.

CORN! -- Mrs. Armida Brewer, residing abut three and a half miles southeast of Perryville, has corn stalks growing upon her farm that contains twelve ears of corn. This is vouched for as strictly true. Who will dare to say that Perry is not a corn producing county? Who wil beat it? Mr. William Sandler, residing four miles northeast of Perryville, has hills of corn containing fifteen ears, three stocks to a hill. -- How is this?

FIRE! FIRE!! -- On last Sunday afternoon the bell on the engine house in Perryville rang pretty lively for a little while, and not knowing but that somebody was being burned out of house and home, we doned [sic] our hat and coat and struck out in double quick time for the scenes of the trouble, when we ascertained that instead of a conflagration the members of the Perryville Fire Company No. 1 were making preparations to have their "pictures" taken. No body was hurt, and the word continues to revolve.

DIED, on Friday morning, September 10th, 1875, at her residence five miles north of Perryville, Mrs. Margaret Hagan, wife of Mr. James Hagan, aged about 37 years.

DONE WELL. -- Mr. Simeon Layton, residing five miles east of Perryville, finished threshing his wheat a few days since, and it turned out pretty well. From twelve acres sown in wheat he received just four hundred and seventy bushels! This is an average of nearly forty bushels to the acre. What does the Fredericktown Plaindealer think of this kind of a yield? Don't it leave old Madison clear in the shade in producing cereal? There is no sort of question about it, there is no better country for wheat growing than old Perry county, and her wheat always commands first class prices. -- Emigrate here.

ACCIDENTALLY KILLED. -- On last Saturday morning Mr. Jules Denizet residing three miles south of Perryville, accompanied by his son, a boy about thirteen years old, went to Waters Landing, each with a load of wheat, and arrived safely. Having disposed of the wheat, they started homeward, Mr. Denizet taking the lead. When near what is known as the old Jones hill farm, the boy's team became frightened and ran away, passing his father's team and struck his wagon and broke an axle tree, and precipitated the unfortunate boy forward upon the double trees from there fell to the ground, and when picked up by his father life was extinct. His skull was terribly fractured.
