The lloward-fiuchanan suit broadened un expectedly when Attorney Taylor, the defendant s counsel, alleged In his answer the existence of two other lease agreements besides the one which was directly the subject of the action.

She boards with the family of thn Judgo and when the latter re turned from & neighborhood horse bark ride trip Miss lllder s.ilil she would like a little horsebnr'- exer cise herself. No sooner had she mounted tban tho animal started on a wild gallop down tho hill. Miss Rider's pall on the curb bit hating no restraining effect. A few rols from the starting place she lost her seat and went headlong to the ground. An examination by Dr. Smith showed that she had suffered no broken bones and although Internal Injuries were at first indicated.

The promise of a bountiful applo rr.p which was given by an abund ant output of blossoms is threatened Jn this locality by adrerso conditions indicated by thn yellowing and drop ping of the leaves and shrivelling of the erabroya fruit.

There has been no general spraying of fruit trees here abouts this season and whether It would have proved a preventive of the present blight remains a matter of conjecture. The trouble is ascribed to the sudden change of weather con ditions rather than to any of the many kinds of Insert pest by which fruit trees are attacked.
