Miss Lola BURKS, of Whitney, is visiting relatives in Comanche this week.

Mr. MILLER, of Glenrose, called in this week and subscribed for the Chief.

Mr. Milton PITT, of the Proctor precinct was a contributer to the Chief this week.

Mr. C.W. CHURCHWELL, one of the Chiefís substantial supporters, was in our office Monday and renewed his good will towards the Chief.

Mr. J.B. THOMSSON, the nominee of the Democratic party for Commissioner of the Comanche precinct, was in town Thursday, the first time since his recent protracted spell of sickness.

Mr. J.E. MURPHY, of Brownwood, arrived in the city last Tuesday with his family and will make this his future home. Mr. MURPHY is an experienced miller and is employed in the Roller Mills.

Having concluded to change my business, I will close my books on Nov. 1, 1888, and all who are indebted to me are respectfully requested to come forward and settle. R.W. TURNER

To those who owe me I wish to say: If you donít like to be dunned call and make settlement at once. I have neither the time or inclination to run after people or stand on the streets and watch for them. To those who think it cheaper to change doctors than to pay up, as some have done, I bid you God speed. I cannot live on corn and sorghum alone, I must have some money. If you donít heed this call, look out for John STEPHENSON. C.F. PAINE


My wife, Frances CARR, having left my bed and board, all persons are hereby warned that I will not be responsible for any debts contracted by her from and after this date.
