Raise Good Colts.
It is evident to an observer that
there are still a few farmers who
think it not worth while to raise a
good colt instead of one of the in
ferior class A glance at the mar
ket ought to convince anybody
that the demand is for good big
draft animals and the higher class
of road stock. There are plenty
of really fine road horses and big
Clydesdales and Pcrcheions and
fine jacks in this end of Jasper
County, and while it costs a little
more to breed to such stock when

Got the Mayor's Heat.
Mayor Spaid was right peevish I
for a while last week, and all on
account of losing a couple of per
fectly good home-cured hams
which he had hanging in his smoke
house. The mayor, however, was
guilty of contributory negligence
in the matter, as he left the smoke
house door open and a cotnenient
box under the meat. A hungry
dog came in Wednesday night,
pulled the hams down, and gnaw
ed them to the bone. Spaid says
"That houn' dawg didn't leave
enough meat on them bones to
cook a mcfcs of saucr kraut with.''
