A certain widow and widower in this town are liable to jump the broom before a very long time. She gets his buggy and team nearly every day and takes a drive. Some claim that she is helping him out with a “sweet sixteen-year-old girl”, but form the smiles we saw the other day when the buggy passed a certain store, we are inclined to think it will be the widow.
The Lindsay Comedy Company will play at the opera house here on Tuesday and Wednesday night. The company has been here before and all who heard it are loud in their praise.

At all the places in the large cities they have played in since they left here the papers are loud in their praise. Come out and hear the play.
A Card: Some person dropped a letter in the post office addressed to my wife, advising her to keep a watch over me. My wife knows I am a gentleman; she knows I keep company with the best element of the town; and the parties who are mailing anonymous letters will do well to attend to their own business and keep their tongues behind their teeth, for they are the ones who will do to watch. W. R. Smith
The party who mailed the above mentioned letter will do remarkably well to attend to their own business and leave mine and my husband’s affairs to ourselves. Mrs. W. R. Smith
