Merrillsville - Dec. 22, 1890.


- It is with deep sorrow we chronicle the death of Mrs. Henry Eisaman, residing two miles south of us, who passed away Monday evening, Dec. 15, in her 28th year. That fell disease, consumption, was warded off as long as loving friends and medical aid could combat it, but she was too frail, and after five days lying in bed, she passed quickly away to that better world, Her loss will fall deeply on her husband, little son and a widowed mother, who have been unremitting in their care of her for a number of years. She also leaves two sisters and a brother, Mrs. Eugene Rich, of Peterboro, Miss Estella Petrie, who resided with her, and Romaine Petrie, of Ohio, who reached here in time for the funeral, which was held at her late home on Friday. Elder Rixon, of Peteroboro, officiating and interment at the latter place. A beautiful pillow, with "Nannie" in leaves and flowers, cross, boquets, etc. attested the affectionate remembrances of cousins and friends.
- Sylvanus Hart, Jr., visited his sister in Cazenovia recently.
- D. Stone delivered his hops last week, which cleans out the article in this locality.
- Mr. and Mrs. Hainsworth's large and pleasant home was tendered for the donation on the 16th for Pastor Nichols. A goodly company assembled, and about $22 was realized and handed over to the Elder, who was present, accompanied by his daughter. Thanks are due the host and family for their kindness on this occasion.

- Our esteemed townsman, Frank Moore, was united in marriage to Miss Nora Ingalls on the 16th inst. After a short stay at Adams, they returned to their home here Friday evening, when they were surprised by about twenty jolly couple, who had, through the kindness of his son, already taken possession of his new and as yet unfinished house, and were enjoying a good oldfashioned house warming until their arrival, when a cordial welcome and hearty congratulations were tendered the newly wedded couple Meanwhile a few young folks had, through the invitation of the older ones, betaken themselves to the old home and prepared an oyster supper, to which Mr. and Mrs. Moores and their unexpected guest were invited to, after which festivities were resumed until near morning, when the party dispersed, each wishing the host and hostess many years of happiness in their new and elegant home. Excellent music was furnished by the Eddy brothers. Among the out of town guest we noticed Mr. and Mrs. George Harp of Pratt's Hollow, and Mr. and Mrs. Rolin Case, of Perryville, the ladies being a sister and niece of the bride.
