JOSEPH SWINDELL, located in Shallenbergers block, two doors east of Lawrence & Whislers, deals in all kinds of country produce, but makes a specialty of butter, eggs and poultry, for which he always pays the highest market price in cash. He pays more for fresh than salted butter, which is a new feature in the trade of this place. His shipments of these three leading articles are enormous for a town of fifteen hundred inhabitants. His trade is rapidly increasing and now requires the labor of several hands to properly care for his produce.
