          Our old friend, Chris Letsinger  wants us to inform his many patrons that he has opened up a first -class blacksmith shop in the rear of  Wilson's  livery stable on west Broadway where he wants all those who want good work done for reasonable prices to call and see him.  He is better prepared than ever before to do good work and has a large shed in which his patrons can keep their horses out of the rain or snow while waiting for work to be done.  Don't forget the place.
