We took in the path of the cy
clone. You could tell that , it
meant business. We spent several
days at the home of . Cameron

shape. Mrs. Tuler has the -finest
chicken-ranch that we have seen
in the county. She has over 500
young chickens and they are fine.

Green. -He lives up at the foot
of the mountains. He has a rock
road from his house to Pleasant
'Gap but deliver me from all such

' we took dinner and talked poli

of J. W. Ferguson where we spent

wife were visiting last Sunday,
but we didn't learn where they
went but we do know that we
failed to get any dinner at Uncle

fight down on the creek a few
days ago. One of the. party got
badly excited over the fight but
nobody was hurt and the dogs
pulled out for home.
We hear it reported that Col.
Lockridge is done planting corn.
We haven't seen the Col. for some
time so we guess that is right.
