On Sunday morning last, aoatod In one
of Ferry I'owor's easy riding, comfortable
buggies, drawn by ono of his flootcst
horses, and accompanied by County
Olerk Lynch, we left Cairo for a "trip up
tho country." It waa n cool, pleasant
morning, and tho roada boing In oicollont
condition, wo wero 1 esj than throo hours
In arrlrlng at tho rosldoncoof Squlro
Thomas Martin in Gooao Inland precinct.
"Wo found Mr. Martin at homo. Ho
had Just returned from n walk through
his wheat nnd corn Holds. Whont on hi.
placo ho InformaJ in was novor bottnr
and was noarly all harvoatod. Tho com,
hnworor, was in a bad condition, with
prospocls of a vory slim crop. Tho ox
tromoly dry, hot weather was tho p.au te
of this. Squlro Martin is deputy county
assessor, and has boon busy usscsslng the
lands of tho county. Ho thought ho could
comploto tho work lu u wook or ton days

L'laving Squiro Martin's wo arrived ut

At "Woods' spill wo had tho pleasure of
meeting Mr. Wm Woods, who upon

but la beginning to look up.
Leaving Wood's mill wo drovo direc
toThelns, whoro wo arrived n few minuted
after 12 o'clock. Thebes Is not a lively
town nt best, nnd on this ocoalon waa

accounted for in tho fact that n Sunday
