There was an extra large crowd in town on Monday, but not an unusual amount of business was transacted.
The Union Sunday School picnic at Rome last Saturday was largely attended and much enjoyed by all present.
There was some horse-racing last Monday afternoon but we did not hear which horse came out victorious.
There will be a picnic at Johnsonville next Saturday. We acknowledge a very kind invitation to attend and will certainly try to be there.
