    • [Edward] Tasker is negotiating for the purchase of the building where Houser has his shop. [4]
    • A well known blacksmith, resident of this village, lately shod four span of horses all around, one of them being a well know racer and another a ferocious kicker, fitted and corked all the shoes, making the steel corks and pulling off fitting and the setting the shoes himself, doing and finishing it in 6.5 hours. We greatly doubt if the majority of the blacksmiths of this county can best or equal this performance in the time given. This work was executed by Edward Tasker. [5]
