     The soda water and ice cream season is nearly suspended.

     The most complete stock of blank books, stationary and so forth is to be found at G. W. Welkert & Co.

     All politicians who want wires "pulled" at the next election call on J. Kelly.  He is the only wire worker in town.

     The Rev. Finis E. Foster of Austin, Tex., will preach in the Cumberland Presbyterian Church this morning at half past ten; also in the evening at half past seven o'clock.

     Capt. P. M. Choteau, the affable city collector, called on us after an absence of several weeks in California, much improved in health and good looks.  Delinquent taxpayers, look sharp.

     We learn that Mr. Theodore Hunter, living near the city on the Independence Road, was seriously injured yesterday morning by being thrown from a mule and striking his head upon a log lying near.

     We record with pleasure the arrival in our city of the brilliant young lawyer and editor, Capt. Richard A. Collins of the Waverly Express.
