Whtt Will the Harvest Be?
We picked up a love letter the otlier
day written by Billy Brown who in
contentp'ating matrimony or suicide or
both. We wont uy who the young lady
it. but here are a few extracts from
"C'overport, Ky., July 29
"My Dearest 1) 1"
"Aa the evening shaddows fade, and
the curt tin of darkness falls on the
close of day, I sit and dream of the
time when yon and I will start life's
iourney as one. We will shove our
barque from the rugged shorea of Dark
ness and drift with the tide into the
beautiful valley of Light, where by day
we will live in fancy's splendour, and at
night we shall be pillowed upon the
bosom ot Peace and lulled to sleep in
the cradle of Contentment. And when
we enter the land of Morpheus we will
build our air castle in a cool shady nook
only to have it melt away in the mist at
morning's twilight "
"As Claudius sang to Ion, so shall I
sing to you:
"A9 my boat floats out o'er the summer
Klnuta M lu-.iri nVr the deen for its
I 1 passion for thee;
And the twin stars that shine o'er the
My God and my guide are thine eyes."
"Ye9, your beautiful twin stars will
ever guide me out of darkness into the
golden path of sunshine. Your potent
charm, your wonderful power of fasci
nation, would make good old Saint
Peter jealous of your company. But it's
a long, long trail from here to where
the good old Saint resides, so why
should I worry? Truly, you are my own
sweet star-eyed goddess."
Market Strong on "Elm Peelers."
Freeman & Brown, hog raisers of this
city, shipped fourteen "elm peelers" to
Louisville last week on the steamer
Nashvil'e Mr. Brown accompanied
them in order to keep them from peeling
the bark off some of the rousters. After
several harrowing experiences George
finally landed them at the stock yards.
The market happened to be strong on
"elm peelers" and George disposed of
them at a handsome profit to a sports
man and fox hunter of Crab Orchard.
The gentleman buying them for the pur
pose of training some hound pups to
keep a fast a. id crooked trail He hopes
to win the Kentucky De. by with one of
the "elm peelers" and the National Fox
Hunters' trophy which will be run off
at Crab Orcha d this fall with his pack
of wel'-trained pups

We dared not loaf a single second,
