Old Glory

Weekly Perryville Union
Perryville, Missouri, Friday, 20 July, 1877


TO-DAY we close the fifteenth volume of the Union

SOME OF OUR MILLERS are paying --0 per bushel for wheat.

WHEAT in some localities only averaged eight to ten bushels to the acre.

ROASTING EARS have come, at least some of our citizens tell us they have ... them.

-. F. DICKINSON & CO. wants those indebted to them to settle up. Read their advertisement.

THE OATS crop has turned out remarkably well this year, better, per acre, than for many years.

LOSS. -- A gentleman named Me--- residing in Bois Brule bottom recently lost a valuable cow.

A CHILD in Randolph county recently fell a distance of forty feet in to a well, and yet was not hurt.

A FINE RAIN visited these parts on Monday, and it didn't come any too soon, for crops were suffering for the want of it.

BIRTH. -- A little boy called at the residence of Narcisus Prost, four miles ---thwest of Perryville on Wednesday of last week.

     Baby buggy

PAINTING UP. -- The wood work of the Gotto building has been nicely painted by Fritz Springer, and he has done a nice job.

THE UNION's force was increased two last Monday night, and the boys have come to stay. Their musical powers are excellent.

FRED. NUICE paid our county a few hours visit last Friday, but he failed to tarry long, as he turned his back upon us, and made for Illinois where it is more congenial for him.

LEFT US. -- Emanuel Block accompanied by his sister, left for the city of St. Louis on Thursday of last week, where Emanuel will remain for a few weeks to recuperate his health.

CROOKEDNESS. -- A firm in Randolph county were lately discovered to be conducting rather a crooked business, and for so doing they were fined two thousand eight hundred dollars and costs.

THE TRIAL of Frank Maddock for the murder of John O'Brien will commence next Monday morning. We shall very probably be able to tell our readers in our next issue what will be done with him.

THE PREMIUM LIST of the Southeast Agricultural Fair, (which meet at Cape Girardeau on the 9th of October next) has been received. The pamphlet was printed at the News Office, and it is a very creditable piece of work.

ON INFORMATION, sworn to by C. A. Weber, our gentlemanly county clerk, F. Feltz & Co. were fined $1 and costs for burning straw upon the streets. It seems to be his determination to have the ordinances enforced against some.

McCAULEY'S MEAT MARKET. -- By reference to another column in this issue, it will be seen that the partnership heretofore existing between McCauley & Lang has been dissolved, and the former still carries on the business at the old stand.

BALLOU'S MAGAZINE for August is a rich and varied number, and well worthy the attention of all who like light and varied reading. There is not a dull article in the whole one hundred pages of matter, and that is one reason why this publication is so popular.

PRETTY GOOD. Augustus Cissell, residing three miles north of Perryville, has raised some splendid oats this season. He tells us that he has some stalks that measure five feet and nine inches in length, and one head contained two hundred and seven grains. How is this for oats?

SQUIRE HALBROOK'S Court was in session last Friday afternoon, and among other business, a criminal case was brought before him for a hearing. The State of Missouri vs. Martin Reiss, charged with threatening violence, and also for petit larceny. The case was continued until next term.

LABORATORY. -- Ayers & Co. have laboratory, so has Dr. Jas. H. McLean and others, and though Perryville is not an immense city, yet it has a laboratory, too, Dr. F. Feltz & Co. having recently been engaged manufacturing patent medicines, and among the remedies is one called the "King of all Pains."

F. Feltz & Co.

DIED, on Sunday, July 15th, 1877, at the residence of his parents, two miles south of Perryville, Leo, son of Mr. Louis and Mrs. Victorine Guyot, aged 9 years.

A MAN KILLED. -- On Thursday of last week a man named William Travis visited Jackson in Cape Girardeau county, and partook rather freely of whisky, and while in a state of intoxication, he stabbed Louis Werner, an employe [sic] in Tiedemann's mill in that place, from the effects of it he soon after died. The perpetrator of the deed was arrested and placed in jail.

PERSONAL. -- Mrs. Margaret Krautz of St. Louis, arrived here last week visiting relatives. Mr. Charles Ostner, brother-in-law of Mrs. William Litsch, formerly of San Francisco, Cal, but now of Boise City, Idaho, is here on a visit

Mrs. Dr. Mann and her mother left for Chester last Wednesday morning.

A NICE ORGAN. -- The members of the Brazeau Church determined to have a nice organ, and accordingly went to work to raise the necessary funds to purchase it. They succeeded, and now their church is graced with a splendid instrument. We understand ...and... ---ment, and right well they know how to do it.

The Anchors and Centrals.

THE LAURELS OUR[S] ! -- On the afternoon of the 15th inst., at about two o'clock, aged ladies, young ladies, big girls and little girls, old men, young men, bachelors, big boys and little boys, the good looking and the homely, congregated up on the base ball grounds of the Centrals a short distance east of Senator R. Shelby's residence, to witness a game of baseball between the Anchors of St. Mary's and the Centrals of Perryville. The evening was a propitious one, a fine breeze making it quite comfortable.

Considerable interest was manifested in the game from the beginning, and it grew very interesting and quite exciting before the closing scene was enacted. Our readers are aware that a few weeks since the Perryville Centrals visited St. Marys's to play the Anchors a game, in which engagement the Centrals were quite badly routed, but nothing daunting, they determined that it should not be so one-sided the next time they met up on the green carpeted earth to show their hand. But few persons anticipated any thing else than that the Perryville club would be out-maneuver[ed], routed and put to flight, for the Anchors have, on all occasions, proven expert and ready players, and seldom have been beaten upon the field, but, in this spirited engagement we were most agreeably surprised to learn that instead of the Anchors winning the goal, the Centrals, after a persistent and well fought battle, carried of[f] the wreath of glorious victory.

The Centrals made eleven scores while the Anchors scored ten. It will be seen that the battle was a very close one, but sufficient for a victory, and we feel considerably elated over the result, we must admit, however, that the Anchors played an excellent game of base ball. The Centrals won by following score:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Anchors 2 0 0 0 2 0 0 5 1 - 10
Centrals 0 0 0 0 0 3 2 4 2 - 11

We now guess that the Centrals will send a challenge to the St. Louis Browns, or some other first class players and give them a tussel for the championship.

St. Mary's Items

EDITOR UNION: We had a little rain on Tuesday last, and those several young ladies who went blackberrying received a friendly ducking

G. H. Counts, residing three miles from town, raised oats whose straw measured six feet in height.

The Anchors were beaten, but want another game with the Perry county champions.

The elevator, although not completed, is receiving wheat.

Old Wop again only happened in Perryville... there again on ... when those beautiful... was out promenading.

The City of Chester got in pol--- St. Louis with 9,283 sacks wheat, or 1,206,790 pounds.

The Anchors are going to play a match game or two with the best material, in the shape of ball players, that Ste. Genevieve affords.
