          According to a statement made today by  Mrs. George Rapp,  secretary of the board of Federated Charities, the local organization is in need of funds, and since the office of the board will close the later part of this month, it is requested that the donations be sent as soon as possible to  Edward Boyd, treasurer of the organization.
          During the past year, the board has spent the sum of $1,094.35 and since it only had $1,039.66 in the treasury, the organization is in debt more than fifty dollars.  It is urged that those who desire to help the organization do so at once, as the board will not conduct a campaign in which to raise funds.

The  Shelby  Republican
Wednesday, March 9, 1870
          The German Benevolent Society of this city has of late increased to such an extent, that their room for meeting over  John Wise's  store was found too small.  They have now leased for a term of ten years, that elegant room in the third story of  Mr. Major's  Bank building, where they expect to move to on the first of April, and before doing so, they proposed giving a Grand Ball in Blessings Opera Hall, on Tuesday evening March 29th, 1870, to which the public are respectfully invited.  Tickets only one dollar for Lady and Gentleman.
