folks from going. Among those present were the Misses Berdie and Tenie

LONGVIEW, December 18, 1887 - As I had nothing to do, hog-killing being
over, I thought I would wend an item to your paper. Longview is a
thriving commercial town, with a population of about FOUR and a good
prospect for an increase next year. Thomas HERRINGTON, an old citizen
of this place but for the past year residing in St. Louis county, is
reported to be the recipient of a red-headed boy. Don't know for sure,
but Thomas wears an eight-day grin. Wm. SWANTNER, our blacksmith, lost
one of his boys last week with diptheria. He has the sympathy of all
his friends in these parts. This neighborhood is considerably worked up
over an expected wedding; everybody is on the qui vive, as the facts
have not leaked out as yet. However, Jim McCORMICK wears a very broad
grin and Cassie CLARK is wearing a peach bloom on each cheek. There is
some talk of Ernest BONACKER being the next Republican candidate for
President should John SHERMAN decline. S.
