The Greenback World
(The following articles were taken from the 7 May 1879 paper.)
A trip to the country
Last Thursday we put a bundle of World's under the buggy seat and
pulled out for Marion, stopping occasionally on teh way to pick up a
subscriber until we pulled up for a chat with Esq. Shields. We found
him in his blacksmith shop where he spends his time now since his
return from Eldon. He wa smoking his pipe, of course. Friend, Yockey
and Stacy, all smoke some, ut Shields smokes considerable.
Esq. Shields talks of going to Eureka and starting a grocery store and
post office there which is certainly a good point for that
purpose. Eureka sadly needs a post office, many farmers now hving to go
10 or 12 miles to Washington after their mail, which makes it
inconvenient, especially during the busy season.
We wold respectfully request that any of our patrons who may
conteemplate suicide, murder, theft or any other sensational
performance, that they will be kind enought to put off the executon
until between Saturday morning and Tuesday evening, so tht the WORLD
may get the "local" before the STAR; by doing so, it will not
discommode you much, and will oblige us greatly.(7 May 1879)
