A pressure of business recently has
prevented us from getting in our lit
tle mite for several times, but your
readers have not lost much on ae
count thereof. Until the last ten days
it has been so rainy that farmers were
'in the blues," and continued in the
blues till they got "in the weeds,"
and since the rains ceased they have
been bo eternally present' with, the
weeds that you can't get to see one
without going to the field ; and that
is against my profession. It is not
my business to go to the field and fol
low a man back: and lorth from one
end of the field to the other to collect
a little news or neighborhood gossip
for the instruction or even ainuse
mentor newspaper readers. Ko it is
not to be wondered at that the news
"crap" is short.
