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)
