A NEW MILK CO.
Wood Terry and R. W. E. Funk have formed a partnership and will soon be
known as the Jacksonville Sanitary Milk company and will be doing
business in the city. Their chief production will be pasteurized milk,
which is milk put through a process which is said to free it from all
impurities. They intend to operate a creamery in connection with it,
and will use the latest and best machinery. They have purchased a lot
on South Mauvaisterre Street, just south of Hoffman Bros. store, where
they will construct a building suitable for the purpose. The two
gentlemen are young but progressive men and intend to make their new
venture a success, and it is hoped by their many friends, that they will
succeed in doing so.
Roodhouse Record; "Jacksonville feels rather puffed up over its
distinction of having furnished the material for three governors to the
state, the only town in Illinois with this record along gubernatorial
lines. Away back in the state's infancy Governor Duncan was the first
to come from Jacksonville, then during the war the elder Richard Yates,
of Jacksonville, was called to the helm, and the present Governor-elect
Richard Yates, the son of the war governor, is the third."
And the supply of gubernatorial timber in Jacksonville is
inextioustible.?? ( maybe they mean inexhaustible)?? The "factory" on
the hill is turning out material every year, the two Yates' both being
graduates of Illinois college.
??(AD)?? Read a local citizen's testimony.
Mr. Wm. T. Gibbons, of 139 East Wolcott Street, teamster for B.P.
Andrews and Sons, Lumber dealers, says: "For a long time off and on I
had severe pains through the small of my back, so that frequently I
could hardly get up or down, and often in the mornings I had to roll
....try Doan's Kidney Pills, so I went to the drug store of Dr. H. Lee
Hatch and procured a box.

W.H. JORDAN who resides on Sandusky Street, yesterday received the sad
intelligence of the death of his beloved sister, MRS. THOMAS P., CRAIG,
at her home in Denver, Colo. Deceased was 55 years of age, and leaves a
husband and six children to mourn their loss. Mrs. CRAIG was born and
reared in the Ebenezer neighborhood and in her girlhood was considered
one of the most beautiful and accomplished young ladies in that section
of the county, and was a general favorite with all who knew her. Her
early training was of the best, and her parents, MR. AND MRS. W. S.
GORDON, ( probably should be JORDON ,), early taught her to walk in the
paths of righteousness and to the end she had moved in the straight and
narrow way that leads to the higher and better life. Where they had
preceded her many years ago, her death comes as a great shock to those
who knew her but to love her, and especially to her immediate relatives.
Surviving relatives are W.H. JOHN, HARDIN AND C. W. JORDAN, brothers,
and MRS. EDMUND BLACKBURN, an only sister, who resides about five miles
northwest of the city. All have the sympathy of their many friends in
their and bereavement. Word of her death came too late for relatives
here to attend the funeral, otherwise some of them would have gone,
although the distance is very great.
MRS. B. L. AYERS died at 9 o'clock yesterday morning at the home of her
daughter, Mrs. M.E. Worrell, Eighteenth and Kentucky Streets in Quincy.
She had suffered with heart trouble.

was exciting throughout. The final score was 11 to 6, the Springfield

He was already through his opponent line and had a clear field for a
touchdown. Henkle kicked goal.
After the kick-off following, Springfield was unable to make the
distance and Henkle punted the ball into Illinois territory. Illinois
then carried the ball by steady gains to Springfield's 17 yard line,
when an end run scored a touchdown, an easy goal tied the score.
In the second half both teams played better football. During the
intermission Springfield was given pointers on how to break up the
mas..play that had been used so successfully by their opponents in the
first half and several times secured the ball on downs. In the last
five minutes play Illinois fumbled on her own 10 yard line. HARRY
MORGAN gathered..the ball and carried it to the five yard line. On the
next play SEIFERT sent around the end for a touchdown. HENKLE failed to

In consolation to fellow democrats we wish to say: There may be victory
in defeat. Any evils resulting from the policy of the present
administration cannot now be saddled upon the democratic party. Mr.
McKinley announces that "so far as human wishes can control" there will
be no changes in his cabinet nor in the policy of the administration.
Now with a republican senate and house there is no obstruction in their
course. Fair minded people of the nation have placed in them their
confidence and trust them to guide us through another year.
