But if you imagine that the .Prussians

they had got the pillows from the bed

A man named Barton, with several
claiming to hail from Chicago,
has recently been detected in carrying
people by means of forged deeds to

property which was not his own! His
plaa has been to go to the 'real estate
records in different counties and ascer
tain the names and residence of owners

owners, and have a confederate person
.fA aid nwriArn for the nnrrjose of ac
knowledgement before notaries. This
accomplished, ne was reaay so sen w
any one who offered to buy. As- the
records showed the title to be in him,
this was not difficult, as he undoubted
ly sold at hard-times prices. . One of
his operations in this county has just
come to light A single lady named
Wheaton, of Philadelphia, owns a half
section of desirable timber-land in the
northern part of the Town of Volinia,
which different persons had tried in
vain to buy of the real owners and
when the alleged transfer to Burton
appeared among the published list of
transfers, Burton had plenty of appli
cations for the land, thus enabling him
to sell at good figures. Mr. Joseph
Warren of Decatur, purchased 160
acres of it, paying $L200 down and
giving a mortgage for as much more,
which the swindler came near dispos
ing of to a banker in Kalamazoo. A
man from Allegan county was victimiz
ed for a portion or the whole of the
other quarter section. . These parties
have been . cutting the : timber this
winter, and hauling it to the saw-mill
at Decatur. It is stated that Warren
has taken measures to stop a legal
transfer of the outstanding mortgage.

Early Rose Potatoes Stand at the Head
of the List.
The following, from the last Country
Gentlemon, is in accordance with the
universal testimony of ' all potato
growers who have tested the different
varieties now cumvatea :
The 21st of May last after planting
corn, I had about an acre of ground
that was reserved lor the caooage pioi,
a niece on which potatoes were grown
the year previous ; and, having a few
small potatoes 01 tne x.ariy xvone u me

small for any purpose except to feed

deep across the patch, dropped the po
tatoes one m a place, two sua a uui
feet apart, in the furrow?, then covered
th Am with thA nlow they were twice
cultivated and howed with but little ex

planted, and June was the month of
severe drought with us in tnis section.
July gave us more rain, while in Au

with copious showers, ana me res 01

sufficient for the wants of growing

food ; but in either ease, the pig, to do

have a small boned, well bred pig,
such as a grade Essex or Berkshire
or Suffolk, we think it would be far
more profitable as a rule to fatten
spring pigs than to winter them over.
