their party loyalty.

be cast in his favor to-day, in
recognition of his services as Con

The rains made farm work a vaca
tion time, and the farmers took ad
vantage of the opportunity to pay a
visit to "town." Business was brisk

number of mules horses and cattle

Business "with the merchants was
reported as being very satisfactory,
and many stores made substantial
'additions to their bank accounts.
The redeeming feature about tne
day was the entire absence of pat
