A. Gunn is doing a thriving marketing business.

Constable T.J. Starcher has just completed a fine cellar at his residence.

Mrs. Lenora Cline and Miss Dora Wright started to Richwood the first day of this month, where they will work in a clothes pin factory.

Warren Gibson and Willie Starkey returned home one day last week from Richwood. They report a pleasant time.

G.A. Bailey, who has been in the mountains for some time, returned home last Tuesday.

Mrs. T.H. Booher and Miss Gertrude Riggs entertained a party of young folks the other evening. All report a good time.

J.W. Stalnaker returned one day last week from a pleasant visit to friends in Jackson county.

T.J. Starcher has a fine raft of timber hauled and is now ready to raft it.

Steven Crawford and E.W. Goff have bought the timber on S.E. Keith's place on Daniels run, and will have a saw mill there in a short time. D.H. Nester has sold his ox team to Riddle Bros. of Muscle Shoals.

Ada Norman, who has been so low with typhoid fever, has so far recovered that she is able to be out of the house.

The school under the direction of G.G. Kelley at the new school house on Daniels run is progressing nicely.

The literary society at the Starkey school house is becoming very interesting.

J.J. Booher made a flying trip to Sutton last week.

Joseph Sturm has been the guest of Mrs. M.J. Lower for a few days.

S. L. and A. Gunn are contemplating the erection of a fine store building at this place.

H.M. Maffitt has sold his hounds and says he is going to quit hunting and clear him out a corn field. We would like to see more men in this county make the same kind of a move. We thing it would benefit the county more than any thing else.

Mrs. Geo. Gibson, who has been on the sick list for some time is better at this writing.

J.W. Nailer (Naylor) extends an invitation to all who will come and help gather in his corn, as he is afflicted and not able to gather it.

It is a little early to talk politics, but our choice is S. M. Ward for legislature and L. H. Trippett for Co. Clerk.
