Six teen pieces of music have been received to work on and after a few nights of practice the boys will be ready for con certs. R. A.

Mr. Jeffers also prides himself on 25 acres of spuds, 10 acres of which are up and fairly booming with growth. Wouldn’t John like to market the crop right now at prevailing prices, $2.00 per hundred? What a spudlet that would be. A. W. Carr returned from his trip south and east last Saturday. He came home sooner than he expect ed to on account of not being well, having caught a cold the first night out, which persisted in annoying him until he left Chicago for Colorado, when he com menced to feel better. Mr. Carr has seen a good many years and yet has not learned to carry an overcoat every time he travels. That had something to do with the cold from which he suf fered. He visited the Alabama Nurs ery Co., went from there to Philadel phia to see his sister, made a number of other hurried stops in the east and hastened home to find himself all right as soon as he commenced to breathe Colorado ozone. Mr. Carr says some varieties of good trees will be scarce and high priced this year, while others will run about as usual. He left a large advance order with the Alabama Nurs ery Co. to make sure for his trade what he knows it will demand.

Mr. Tuck er took his guests to the river first where they were all given a boat ride, after which they went to the house and played various games until Mrs. Tucker announced lunch. To this the young folks did ample and satisfying justice. Following the repast games were played until time to go home when Mr. Tucker again filled the hay rack with his laughing, rollicking guests and drove them to Delta.
