Mr. E. V. Bossiere, one of Franklin county's wealthy citizens has just arrived from a six years visit to sunny France and the beautiful Paris. Our readers will be pleased to meet their old friend again. He arrived last night and found his way to the Hamlin House and his old friend W. Bitts. He says he is home to stay and attend to business. Although eighty years of age he is as vigorous and sprightly as many of our younger citizens. Silkville and all his interests around that garden spot will rejoice at his return.
