A deal was made last week by which J.J. Tyler sold the east end of his lot on the south side of Main street adjoining the new Tyler block to S.S. Gump for $1,500. The price of ground has 64 feet frontage on Main street and is 69 feet deep. It is understood that Mr. Gump will put up a large two story business room next spring occupying the entire ground and it will probably be occupied by the furniture business of Gump & Walters.

Gump Building Soon Ready.
The new Gump building will soon be ready for occupancy, and Gump & Walters, who will use the room, are anxious to get in as quickly as possible. They will handle a complete assortment of household furnishings, including everything needed for the home in the way of furniture, stoves, rugs, carpets and curtains. A big force of carpenters and painters are at work this week hastening the interior work on the building. The glass in the front was placed in position last week, and the place is fast taking on the look of completion. It will be a pretty building when completed, and a credit to the town.
