Spectacles- Eames, Ward and Bro. Fine and Fancy Valentines at Mason & Stout's Moore's - coffee


J.D.D. McCully of Mt. Carroll, Ills, is now in the city, visiting friends.

Mr. C. W. Atchison of Chicago, formerly of this city, now in the business department of the Saturday Evening Herald, is sojourning for a few days in the city.

Henry P. Day, Esq., formerly of this city, now local editor of the Daily Peoria Democrat, and Evening Review, spent Saturday and Sunday in the city. Henry looks well; and was gladly met by his many acquaintances. In this connection we can, with some pride, mention him as one of the youngest, and for his youth one of the ablest journalists of this State. Having been raised among us, the valedictorian of his class in Illinois College, and withal a young man of rare ability and promise, we take pleasure in common with all who know him, in commending his accomplishments and predicted future success to all.

W. P. Hopkins, of Virden, spent yesterday in town with his family. While in the city he dissertated upon the nature, character and cultivation of C. W's. His visits, though "few and far between" are a source of much pleasure to his many friends.

D. Frank Clark, of St Louis, "stopped over" during Sabbath. It is a noticeable fact that every traveling man who is in the least acquainted with Jacksonville, makes it a point to spend sunday and every other leisure day with us. this certainly speaks well for us.

Our Debt Views of an Old Citizen I know I am called and old fogy, but I believe I can be classed with many others; for when we write we do it over our own signature. Query: Why do not all do so? Now, I want it understood, I am only responsible for my views. I see by the Springfield papers they are resisting the taxes as illegal. When we applied for a city charter I opposed it because Springfield was paying more interest on her debt than all our taxes. I was answered, we would not increase our city debt....C. M. Chambers.
