Around Town

 Several youths of this place, who from old-time custom and former associations have formed a habit of loafing around the Republican office whenever the desire, are emphatically informed that their presence is not desired and that they must cease their visits or suffer the consequences of forcible ejectment.  Remember the word is spoken and a hint to the wise should be sufficient.

Something new, in the way of cloth-covered burial caskets, can be seen at the furniture and undertaking rooms of A. W. A. Sowle, south side of Maumee street.  Mr Sowle is also continually receiving new additions to his already very large stock of furniture,  Remember he has a full stock of everything in the undertaking department - coffins, caskets, burial robes and embalming fluid.

And now it is Nimocks & Wickwire, who are the proprietors of the Angola marble works.  Thos. S. Wickwire having become a partner with Geo. O. Nimocks.  The firm has the best wishes of the Republican.

Remember the Angola Philharmonic, under the direction of Prof. W. H. Burgett, will give two grand renditions of the new and brilliant spectacular opera of Ruth, the Gleaner, at concert Hall, this (Wednesday) evening and to-morrow night.  There will be a grand chorus of fifty voices and seventeen solo singers.  Reserved seats can yet be secured at O. Carvers.
