It is with pleasure we recommend Rodecker’s Centennial Washing Machine, for sale by Messrs. Nelson & Ball. These gentlemen will take a machine to anyone’s residence, do the washing, and if a machine is purchased, will leave the identical washer with which the work has been done. No stronger proof of the excellence of these machines can be needed.

Testimonials to Rodecker’s Centennial Washing Machine.
The greatest achievement is Rodecker’s Centennial Washing Machines; I have one of them in my house, and I wouldn’t take twice what it cost me if I couldn’t get another. It is not only a time saving, but a money saving machine. Agents, Nelson & Ball, City Hotel.

BIRTHS. Dr. Zach Carlisle has just put in one pretty busy week this harvest cradling. He cradled one bundle, a boy, for R. A. Moore; for R. Knapp, a boy; for Phil. Finch, a boy; for Burt Mastrison, a boy; for J. N. Critchfield, a little girl. The doctor reports the crop pretty fair and says it will no doubt turn out well if carefully “thrashed.”
