strument of some kind in it.

Earliest of The Early.
The Irish Cobbler makes good
in every particular, but this is es
pecially true of its early bearing
qualities. Mr. J. D. Holstein show
ed us an Irish potato of the Cobbler
variety that was taken from his gar
den last Saturday, April sJ22nd,
which beyond doubt is the finest
potato of the season in this section.
The potata in question was about
the size of a Plymouth Rock. Many
others equally as large can be found
in Mr. Holstein's garden. The Cob
bier is an all-rouud good potato
from every standpoint.
Ropers Exchange Growing.
Mr. J. B Timmerman takes great
pride in keeping his telephone sys
tem-the Roper's exchange-in first
class condition. The latest phone
to be installed was that of Mr. Hen
ry Hammond. It is probable that
the Faifa community, which is one
of the best in the county, will be
"tapped" by a wire at an early day.
The good people of that section
should thus get in touch with the
outside world, reflecting the pro
gressive spirit of the community.
Card of Thanks.
Please allow me to thank my
friends for their assistance and co
operation in the recent contest con
ducted by The Advertiser. Words
are inadequate to express my grat
itude for the interest they took in
the contest in my behalf.
