That Ice Cream Supper.
On Tuesday evening last one of the nicest parties ever held in Columbia City, came off at the residence of Mr. John Rhodes, there were about fifty or sixty persons present. “Mine Host and Hostess,” Mr. and Mrs. Rhodes had prepared a most sumptuous repast, which, the party did ample justice in all respects. At about 11 o’clock the party dispersed well pleased with the very sociable visit at Mrs. Rhodes.

New Brick.

Mr. John Brandt has on hand a nice kiln of nicely moulded and burned brick, in the north part of town, which he will sell cheap for cash. All persons wanting a good article of brick can be supplied at Brandt’s kiln. John has worked hard and spent much money in his enterprise, hence should be patronized. Kiln ½ mile north of town on Wolf Lake road.

Milliner Shop.

This week Miss Emma Jane Cook announces to the people of Whitley County – the ladies more especially, that she is still engaged in the millinery business. Emma is a good girl and is highly worthy of a liberal share of public patronage. With two as good milliners as Emma Jane and Mrs. Tatner, we certainly thing all the ladies of Columbia City and surrounding country could be well supplied with the best of millinery.


By a notice in another column of today’s paper it will be seen that the partnership heretofore existing between Adolf Sheifermyer and Adam Shineman has been dissolved by mutual consent. The business in future will be carried on by Adolf Sheifermyer, who intends to keep a good Bakery and family grocery.
