   New Lisbon now has seventeen grocery stores or one to about every 130 inhabitants.

   On last Wednesday while tearing down an old log house on the Miller farm about four miles east of
Hanover, situated on the West Fork road near Ritchies Mill, workmen found seven thousand dollars in
gold in a neatly tied package placed between the logs of the building.  The money was turned over to
be divided among the heirs to the Miller farm.  It is supposed to have been placed there by
Grandfather Miller, an early settler, who built the house.

   Mrs. Jennie Crowell McMillen has opened an office in the Hamilton building and will solicit insurance
for farm buildings or town property.

   A pretty young lady astride a bicycle, with a young man balanced on the hind wheel and clasping
her tightly about the neck, was a sight that caused some unfavorable comment on Market street last
Friday.
