Any one who has not been out in the
'country, and who thinks that all the
crops are burned out by drought,
should disabuse his mind of that
idea. We saw some fields of small
grain- -ami a good many of them
that would give half a crop or more
if rain would come soon. Flax looks
as good as usual, and corn could not
be better. The shortage in the
small -grain and hay crops is caus
ing those who have corn field.- to
carefully culivate them,and the corn
is showing the results of such un
usual care. On the way we saw two
fields of winter rye, already shock
and the shocks quite close together.
If rain would come at once, there
would be very far from a total crop
failure this season in these parts.

writing for both: "We thought that:
perhaps our Linton friends might
care to know how we are situated in
our new California home. We like
it very much and think it an ideal
place in which to live. We are both
feeling in much better health since
we came here. Especially is this
true of Mr. Brock, who seems to
have taken a new lease of life, and
is getting around here like some
young man. We are certainly for

home as we have all eipiipped for

though the day was about as uncom

a high wind and a dust storm all
combining to make things disagree

assembled that the Logan countv

make the day an enjoyable one for

An accident at Shier's Crove and
one at Napoleon marred the pleasure
of the day. At Shier's a son of John

He was severely hurt, but at latest

Napoleon in Logan county near the
