Weekly Citizen - 9 September 1871 - Local News

Centerville Weekly Citizen
9 September 1871
----------------------------
  George M. Teegarden, son of Mr. G. M. Teegarden, of this county, designs boing this fall to the National Mute-College at Washington, to continue his studies and fit himself for the duties of an instructor. He recently returned from Council Bluffs where he was in attendance at the State Institute for the Deaf and Dumb. We wish him unbounded success in his honorable pursuit.
---------------------
  Fare Reduced -- For the accommodation of persons desiring to attend our County Fair, to be held at Centerville on the 12th, 13th and 14th inst., the fare on the Southwestern R.R. has been reduced to sixty percent of the regular rate, between Washington, Iowa, and Trenton, Missouri. This is liberal on the part of the road and will be appreciated by our people generally.
---------------------
  No Go. -- Democracy attempted a new departure in this county last Saturday, but failed signally, as heretofore.  They thought to make a masterly stroke by placing on their ticket a woman for Superintendent of Schools, and tendered informally the nomination to Mrs. M. E. Gill of Centerville. She, however, declined the empty honor with a remark that in her judgement the Republican nominee, Mr. G. C. Goodenough, was an excellent man for the place. She is of the opinion that it is not province of woman to mingle in political strife, and holds the schools of the county as well as the superintendent should in no manner whatever be mixed with county politics.
--------------------
  The County Fair begins next Tuesday. Don't forget it.
--------------------
  The Eden Association of Missionary Baptists is in session at Livingston, and will adjourn next Monday.
--------------------
  Send for the Iowa Homestead of Des Moines by Gen. Wilson. It tells all about farming. Only $2.00 per year.
--------------------
  A Daily Citizen will be issued during the Fair, for free distribution on the Fair Grounds. Fifteen hundred copies will be printed each day. Advertisements should be handled at once.
--------------------
  Shall the sale of wine and beer be forbidden in Appanoose County?  This important question will be decided by the voters at the election this fall.  Of course it will be decided in the affirmative.
--------------------
  The new Methodist Church at Jerome will be dedicated on Sunday, September 17th, at 11 A.M.  Rev. C. S. Jennis will preach the dedicatory sermon. Rev. R Stephenson will preach at 3 P.M.  Other ministers are expected.
--------------------
  A new kind of tea, called "Thea-Nectar," is for sale at this place by Jacob Rummel, which tea drinkers pronounce delicious.  It is used in the best hotels in cities; and is cheaper than common tea.  If the package sent us is a sample of the rest, it is worth a trial.
