(NICEVILLE) There will be an unveiling of Souvereign Knapp’s monument by the W. O. W. at Destin, FL on Sunday, Oct 8, at 2:00 p.m. All are welcome to attend.

Hogtown is a thing of the past, but watch Santa Rosa grow.

We are now receiving patients at the DeFuniak Springs Sanitarium and all the doctors of our city and surrounding country are invited to bring and treat their patients here. We can assure them that their patients will receive the best care and attention possible, as we have engaged the services of a trained nurse from Mobile, who is a graduate and knows her business in the sick room. We will also secure the services of a surgeon who will know his business at the operating table. We intend to fit up several rooms in the lower story of our splendid building, all of which will be heated by steam. The furniture of the operating room will soon be here and the public is invited to inspect our prices and facilities for caring for the sick. Our automobile for quick transit will enable us to answer all calls in the city or country promptly. With all these advantages and facilities we can treat your sick cheaper and give them better care than you can at home. Look at our advertisement in a few weeks. Call and see us.
Dr. G. P. MORIS, Prop.

On Saturday night, the store of C. H. Griffith at Crestview was burglarized and an attempt was made to break into the post office, but the postmaster, who was sleeping there, heard the noise and turned loose a bullet in the direction of the intruder and he left hurriedly and the impression is that the thief carried a pellet of led away with him, but this is not certain.

Charlie Richbourg had a piece of luck on Monday, such as he would not care to have repeated every day in the week. He was called to deliver a splendid mahogany piece of furniture for Neigs Bros., and after it was loaded and the trip began the team ran away, making splinters of wood and glass of what had been one of the handsomest suites of furniture ever sold in the town.
