Henry Billings and wife will leave this city to-day for California, where they go to make their future home. Mr. Billings has purchased somel and in that sunny state will no doubt go into fruit raising. The PRESS wishes them a pleasant journey, and bounteous prosperity in the future.

Samuel DeMouth arrived in this city Saturday, from Fort Snelling, Minnesota, where he is at present located as a member of Co. F. 3rd regiment, U. S. army. He has a furlough of twenty days, which time he will spend with his parents in Christie. His bright U. S. A. uniform attracted much attention.

Harry Robbins has purchased an interest in the bakery and confectionery establishment of his father-in-law, Sol. Jaseph, and will hereafter be found back of the bar dishing up peanuts and sweets to the fair sex and others. Harry will make a good peanut vendor and if he don’t get into the habit of eating up all the profits, will make a success of the business.

While in the city Friday last, Joel Shafer informed a PRESS reporter that he had brought Joe Hammel down to this city from Medford to join the Salvation Army and learn to sing their sweet carols. Joel seems to be nearly as good a vocal instructor as Lon Brooks, and was making great progress in the cultivation of Joe’s voice for sauerkraut and sidings. What the object of Joe’s joining the Salvation Army is more than we can bet on.
