The farmers are up against

some localities is doing well but tl
acreage is short as many farme

it has been an impossibility, hem

The time has come for farming,
and this takes off about a dozen of
us large boys, which we regret very
much, as we love to go to sehool.
Very little has been done towards
farming for our land does not have
time to dry before there is another
flood of rain.
We had quite a storm last night
I saw in last week's paper a piece
from "The Sage of Mudville." If
we don't live in "mudville" I don't
know who does? We have been
mud-bound all winter. I never saw
such roads! There is a mud-hole
near Mr. Luther Ridlehoover's in
which three horses have fallen with
in the last ten days. The good peo
ple have been doing some work on
onr roads this week, dragging them
with logs and filling the holes
with rock. This has improved
them to some extent.
Mr. J. A. Deale had a very nar
row escape last Saturday. His horse
becoming frightened on the bridge
near Mr. Barden's, backed himself
and the buggy off into Steven's
creek, and it was only by jumping
that Mr. Deale managed to escape.
The buggy was broken to pieces
and the horse would have drowned,
had it not been for the saw-mill
hands, who were in a few yards
of the scene.

Oar customers often remark when we test the ANCHOR
Shafts. But you can not break them.
Anchor Shafts are NOT Made to Break
ANCHOR Shafts are made of such good hickory and braced in
such a way they will withstand the severest strain. The bend of
the Anchor Shaft is braced with a truss construction like a bridge.
The entire ANCHOR Buggy is built on the same plan.
Bett constructed boggy ever made. ,
Every part of the Anchor on which there is any strain when in
use is braced and strengthened.
We've gotten quite gymnastic putting the ANCHOR through
different tests to show what it will stand.
Call around some day and let us show you some o? the severe
tests we put the Anchor through.
It's a handsome buggy, too, and comfortable.
It's everything you want in a buggy.
Price ? Well, it's too GOOD for the money.
