The present season has proved a
disappointment in many ways. While
nearly perfect, so far as the judgment
of man could decide, for the growth
and development of vegetation, yet
most of the fruits of the earth in this
section are not satisfactory either in
yield or quality. This is especially
true of the nut "crop. -There is a very
meager yield of walnuts and practi
cally no hickory nuts at all. There
are some hazel nuts but they are of
inferior quality and verv wormy. This
ftuust not be construed as an attempt
to discourage nutting parties, for, of
course, it is perfectly understood that,
like fishing parties, the object from
which the expedition takes its name is
the least consideration.

Swede lately arrived in America a
big-hearted, whole-souled, honest fel
low, always ready to assist the de
pressed. The fun lies in his endeavor
to speak the i-.nglish language and the
various comical situations arise
during the action of the play. A
times the audience is held spell-bound
by the tender pathos that pervades
the piece, and tae next moment con
vulsed with laughter. James T. Mc
Alpin, who has been seen as "Ole O!
son" through this country, has found
in "Hans Ilanson1' an ideal Swedish

that all mankind admires. A modest woman is the most pleasing- of all

physician, and to even think of submitting to an examination is revolt
