Nov. 3. We are glad to report the marriage of Ferd. Doud to Miss Emma Coal, or Broad Ridge. The couple were aroused Wednesday night about eleven o’clock by a party of serenaders consisting of about 28 men and boys. Everything went off well. M. m. Menifee was Captain and James M. Young Lieutenant. James Lummis is doing a profitable business in mule flesh. He bought mules in the amount of $210 and sold them for $110. That is the way our boys get rich. A step-grandson of Daniel Boone has located a few miles from this place. He is living in a small wigwam on game which he kills. He visits our town occasionally with loads of game of all descriptions. He claims to be a step-grandson of the old pioneer.
