The New Brick Block.
The big brick block on the
southwest corner of the square,
is now partly occupied, and the
whole building will soon be in
use. The fine stcck of drugs of
Hess & Gamble is now installed
on the lower floors of the Carrico
building and the Captain Juj
ready moved his abstract office to
the upper floor. Drs. Bilby &
Bowling have the entire upper
floor over A. Shafer’s harness
store. Mr. Wiggins has not yet
decided what to do with his up-
per floor. He had expected to
rent his upper floor for a lodge
room but has not decided yet
whether to do this or cut it into
offices. Fred Hanford expects
to move his large stock of hard-
ware, buggies, etc. into his build-
ing within a week.
