The Store With a Reputation.
during which the wheels of progress
have made many revolutions, I shall
endeavor to give you a chapter on
modern Louisville, the coming county
seat and initial town of Cass county.
This place is becoming a thorough
fare of considerable note. It is via
Louisville that people find their way
o the interior of the county, and
merchants their goods. Each day our
streets are crowded with teams haul
ing merchandise, coal, salt, lumber,
etc.. in all directions into the interior.
The shipment of grain this season has
been larger than ever before, although
the price paid'has not been as high as
.-.hoald have been; but the crops
v.eje good and put the farmers
on better footing than for many years
pu:;t. The crop of corn is jet to be put
n crib as a reserve. There is a large
portion of the wheat remaining un
sold which the farmer hpes will bring
him a good harvest yet.
Below I give a few statistics wh'cl:
I got through the kindne: s of Mr. To
mar., agent of the B. & M., showing
tr-.e number of cars shipped since June
1st ip to date:
Uye, 2; oats, 3; flvcr, 7; wheat, ll';
.-.tone. 4S; hogs. -12; bailey, 41; corn,
Z'.:. total, -300.
The substantial improvements have
exceeded those of a y previous year.
