Old Santa Claus will soon be around to see you and you must all be nice little children and mind papa and mamma. Hang up your stockings next Friday night, and get in bed early and go to sleep, as a noise might cause my reindeer to run off before I can get down the chimney. $2,000 HOSS' IN TOWN. A stock firm, Bridges & Flora, of Crawfordsville, have a large iron gray stallion here, and are making an effort to form a stock company to purchase the horse. The horse is the finest piece of hoss' flesh that ever struck this town. He weighs i960 lbs. and is 4 years old, is of the Percheon stock. The probabilities are that the horse will be bought and a stand will be made here, as this is considered one of the best points in Monroe county for a stallion. Some of the probable stockholders, are Chas. Botkin, Silas Grimes Loebe Warring, Calvin, Chas. and Silas Wisley James Deckard, Geo. Gaither Paris Trisler, Geo. Hensley, Wm. Jacobs Oscar and John Mitchell. The season for such a horse brings $15. This horse took second premium at the Illinois state fair last August.
