One of our farmers has decided
not to thresh his grain. He will
stack it, put in good shape, top
on the stacks with grass, and let it
stay there. He is determined not to
market his grain at the present
prices. But then, most ot the farm
ers have debts to par and cannot
hold their grain that way.

stroyed by fire a short time ago. has
met with another calamity. He was
bringing some ice out of the ice
house and had stepped upon the half

A few days ago a cattle buyer
called at our residence inquiring for
cattle. Iu conversation he stated
that he had traveled extensively in
Henry and Rock Island counties and
that he bad never come across a
nicer, more sociable lot of people
than lived on the north side of Rock
rive. Uf course," he said, "there
are some nice people on the south
side, but take them as a whole you
notice a great difference as soon as
you cross Rock river going north.
On the south side they are sullen,
morose, glumpy, sour, and can
scarcely give you a civil answer to a
a civil question; but once step across
kock river going north, and you
find a different class of people alto
gether. lie had not only found nice
people all through Zama, bnt all
through Coe township he found it to
be tbe same. He spoke specially of
staying over night with one of the
rearsaiis, and ne was in ecstacifs
over the treatment he had received.
After tbe gentleman had left we
thanked our lucky stars that our lot
had been cast on the north side of
Rock river. Mlltlm in Fakvo.
