The Shelby Democrat
Mary Ann Austin has brought suit for a divorce from Samuel Austin, to whom she was married in October, 1879, and from whom she was compelled to separate in 1881. She alleges that Samuel has never provided for her support, and is at present a resident of Illinois, and that she hears that he has another wife over there.

If any one is curious to see the champion blacksmith of the northern half of the county, they will be gratified by calling on Adam Austin, at Marion. He has no superiors and few equals in his line, which includes the manufacture of buggies and wagons complete, and all kinds of repairing from mending a plow up to the most difficult job. Having recently taken in a new dormant, but by no means silent, partner, Austin now bestirs himself with more than his wonted energy. Call on Adam, if you want a first-class job of blacksmith work.
