HOPKINS & MILLER, dealers in hardware, stoves and tinware, agricultural implements &c., and although established only five months ago, are entitled to a leading position among our best mercantile enterprises. They are successors to Messrs Shively Eichholtz & Co. and the establishment is one of the very best in the place. The stock is large and complete and the appointments of the store first-class in every respect. Messrs. Hopkins & Miller are both well and favorably known to the public as enterprising business men and honorable upright citizens, and we cheerfully commend the establishment to the public as worthy of an extended patronage.
