Canebrake Herald (Uniontown)

March 31, 1897 

Fish, Crabs, and Shrimp, once or twice a week. Send me your orders.—Sol. Katz. 

Good advice: Never leave home on a journey without a bottle of Chamberlain’s Colic, Cholera, and Diarrhoea Remedy. For sale by UNIONTOWN DRUG CO. 

Mr. Louis A. Morgan, Jr., left Saturday for a trip to Texas. He will be gone about two or three weeks. 

Mess. L.J. Adler and Julius Marx went down to Dayton last week, to be present at the installation of officers in the K. of P. 

There’s going to be a “prize fight” soon. Two of the boys are both claiming the championship of Uniontown, and will shortly don gloves and fight to a quit. No danger is anticipated. 

At her home near Uniontown, Miss Mattie Graves, on Friday evening, entertained in her own gracious manner. The clever scheme of decoration was purple and white. Those present were: Missees Mattie Graves, Ira Welch, Neita Ware, Madge Hill, Myra Hill, Sadie Graves, Annie Yerby, Messrs. Graves, Warren Graves, Tom Graves, Harris, Benton, Kennedy, Oswald, Speight, Chambers, Hudson.
