It was frequently remarked during this
summer that the corn crop would be a
light one. That the corn crop of last j ear
and the oue before that, were uncommonly
large and that it waB not in reason that
three such crops should follow in succes
sion, yet from what we learn of our farmers
the present corn crop will be equal to the
crops of the two preceeding years. The
recent rains have removed any fears that
may have been entertained, that there
was a lack of moisture to tully develop the
grain. In conversation with Mr. Grimes,
of Gypsum township, yesterday he stated
that if there is any difference in this and
last year's crop, it is In favor of this car.

we arc show u choice specimens or fruit and
told ol remarkable yields. The latest story
in this respect is told us by Mr. T. L. Black,
of Valley Center, and is to tlieelletttli.it

Not many years since farming land in this
county could scarcely be icuted, and par
ties who owned good land that had been

of it to any one that would farm it and
make a show of keeping down the growth
of weeds. Wc have seen quite large tracts
that had gone back to prairie gras after
having been broken for want of ome one

would change the plan or his building and

would invest some ?S,000 in furnishing it
in flrt-l-class style. Mr. Black, however,
docs not take kindly to hotel property.
therefore rejected the proposition. We arc
told that the gentleman referred to would
become a member of a stock company and
