BASEY'S HEARSE - Notice is hereby given, that I have bought the hearse of Olinger & Rigdon, known as the Minto hearse, and kept at Jap Minto's stables, and have moved the same to Radabaugh's stables, corner State and Front streets, and all orders left at the undertakers, Olinger & Rigdon's or A. M. Clough's, or at the stables, will receive the best of attention. Thanking my many friends for their past favors, I hope by fair dealing a continuance of the same, and will strive to heed the motto, "Live and Let Live." A. J. Basey.

A. J. Basey is Salem's oldest and best known liveryman, having been in business for 15 years. He is also a prominent figure in nearly all funerals as furnishing hearses, cabs and hacks for these occasions is his specialty. Besides this he has a few teams that he hires, and to take a drive behind them is a genuine pleasure. He also runs an express wagon under the careful management of Ed. Townsend, the well-known expressman, and any orders left at his place of business on Court street will receive prompt attention. If you want a cab, hack, buggy, or express wagon, ring up No. 581 and your order will be promptly filled.
