Mr. Paul is experimenting with grasses this season which he omisideri adapted to tlvii coua try. II it brorae grass is doiug well as is also ,1 patch of alfalfa he sowed tbisyear. lie behoves that twiiner is a splendid grain and that no other, will excel it "bare. Mr. Paul caiied to njail conies uI'Tuk. Hkraui containing the Fourth of July ad vertismeut to friends at his old home in New York who were under Ihe impression (bat this county was inhabited only by cowboys and lndiant v , The fire department of the city did a graceful and obliging thing -and onewhich we believe will teceive tincercst proof of appreciation later on. They had hirdd the opera house for the Fourth for dancing; but the Fourth of July committee being without a suitable place of reception lor strangers expected that day and for dancing in the evening, the department graciously turned over the use of the opera aouae 10 mem, saying tney would post pone their ball to a later date. When they do give it, they should receive the best patronage the city can give and w.o believe they will get it. Herman Peters was down from his ranch Monday. lie finished shearing his sheep and had 4,500 pounds of wool which he sold for fifteon cents per pound, netting the sum of SC750.
