John Thompson has a short order restaurant at 233 South Main street, where meals as you like them, short orders, fish and game in season, oyster, etc., are served in the most palatable styles. Confectionery and fruits are carried in stock and a bakery is run in connection. Mr. Thompson started this café three months ago, after furnishing it with the finest, up-to-date fixtures, so that it has hardly an equal in appearance and excellence in the county. Added to this he has the best service and from the first he has enjoyed a liberal patronage which will increase as his splendid appointments become more known.
