The grass crop is abund ant aml very tblok at tbe bottom, and the Warm,damp weather is giving a aemi-tropl- cal growth. Very few seasons have ever promiaed more for the huabandman at this time. Tho boya have begun their an nual raid on the birda' neata, which will ul- timately be followed by the entire extermina tion of our songsters aud insect-catchers, unleaa a atop be put to the work. Blta "f broken ahella and dlamantled neata oan be seen anywhere, and uol one bird is seen now where, a few years ago, scorcs of theiu builded about every house.

These American Satines at this very low price are in the pret tiest designs. Come and see them or send for samples. We opened a hargain in dress goods at 121 -c a yard, the other day, and ventured to say they would prove favorites.
