          The post-office stand is well stocked with a good assortment of stationery, confections, cigars and tobacco.  The celebrated Messenger cigar is reputed to be, by far, the best five cent cigar in this market.  It can be found only at the post-office stand.  Mr. Wright has been actively engaged in business for the past thirteen years, and on the 25th day of November, 1878 he stocked the stand in the post-office, and is now doing a good business in his special line.  All those wanting a good smoke for a nickel should not fail to give him a call.
