t
George H Nell of our city and
after enjoying the hospitality ofI
mv friend he invited me to look I
over his growing crop of tobacco I
which id look very elegant with I
many other things of beauty that
was growing on his farm and one
thing in particular that struck
my mind very forcibly was his
growing crop of turnips That
did loo c so beautiful with such
acreage we never did see be
fore in all of our life time and
we take it for granted that Mr
Nell could supply all of the west
ern part of this county in tur
nips and at this particular time
we made mention that we want
ed him to remember us at the
harvest time and he gave his I
consent We called en him aI
fewdays ago for d bushel and 1
with regret Mr Nell informed
us that his turnips was of the I l
gourd kind and all grew to be as I
large as plates but as hollow asj
a gourd Not a bushel of good I i
ones In the patch

Being in a retrospective mood
tonight I will tell you of some
happenings I call to mind that
occurred during the latter part
of 1909 and this year that im t
pressed my mind very forcibly
viz The visit of W E Butler of
Missouri and the many pleasant I
gatherings that were held at that
time I now write again later
on the visit of D H Butler and
family the many happy meet
ing heldat this time were but a
repetition of the former and I
have often thought would have
the pleasure of seeing both re
petted and all the parties pies
Merit again but I remember now
