We would like for our readers to pay close attention to the advertisements appearing in this paper an if there is presented something that you are in need of, patronize them and in doing so mention this paper. People who advertise, are people who cater for your patronage and appreciate your trade. We are inclined to think that people who do not advertise do not care much whether you trade with them or not, and are not much interested in the public generally. We may be mistaken, but this is our opinion. Young Folks Have a Jolly Time, Last Tusday night a wagon load Of young folks drove down to the handsome home of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Mercer, south of town.
