Farm implements, fresh ground flour in our towns

110 YEARS AGOThursday, Feb. 11, 1911from the Mathews Journal

A two-horse manure and lime spreader which cost me $110, for $50. Have bought a three-horse one and have new castings for all worn parts of old one which makes it practically new. Inquire at Spring Hill.

Also, barrel flour from Cow Creek Mill. Absolutely pure and makes delicious bread, as white as snow. Has neither starch nor alum to whiten it as the patent flour made from half mouldy wheat has. Try a barrel and you won’t want the other. Also at Spring Hill.

Among the traveling men seen at Hotel Mathews recently are: Messers Wright, Murphy, Ficklin, Bland Waddle, Gibbs, Curry, Snead, Richardson, Gresham, Pitt, Cox and Hammond.

The home of Mr. Robert Hall, situated near the farm of Mrs. C.D. Hudgins, was destroyed by fire on last Thursday morning, practically all his furniture, etc., was burned. There was no insurance.
