' , ' Up to His OldTiKs Again. ; J. S. Holbert brought us in two ' magnificent peaches, Saturday, grown on his : farm near town. They were both on one stem, their dainty blushes hidden by a few green leaves, they weighed one pound, two and a half ounces and they certainly, did look good " to us.1' Sure, v' : ' ' "Ed" Brooks, cashier of the Citizens-Bank happened in "the office and .noticed the peaches of course. ' Last Fall, when Mrs Mark Edney sent us a bushel of fine sweet potatoes by Mr. Brooks we got two he got the rest. He ., noticed them, too. The pota- r toes were so large it only took four to make the bushel, but that dosn't make any difference It was the same way with the rest of the fine exhibition pf Hen derson County products whichi attracted so much attention ini the Hustler window last Fall he got the most of it,; some way. So it was Saturday. Mr. Hol- berts beauties were alongside that great Alberta peach presented us by Mr. Marshall. Mr. Brooks ex amined them critically.' Admired thm. Made some remarks about the weather 9and when we looked again, the peaches were, gone!' Gone! gone forever!
