of temperature last evening. In three

The Argus today received from G. A.
Coo, formerly of this city and now a
farmer at Fast Bernard, Texas, a bun

dropped by the binder and ready to
be threshed. In appearance It much
resembles a bundle of oats. Rice, as
Is generally known, is grown on land
that is kept under water from the time
the seed is planted till the grain Is
