We notice that some haled hay is

We make no war on the trade of
our merchants when we express the

hay-growing states make no betti
port than this, and it certain.)
no more to grow grass here than it
does elsewhere. And the farmer who
it musl be certain to hale it.
The das for loose load- of hay for

We have made no inquiry on the
subject bul sincerely hope no farmer
is buying hay in this market. lat
this be done by doctors, lau
preachers, tuen hint- and manufactu?

Grow all you need at home, and
then have-onie for market. And how
much more pleasant to cut hay riding
on a mower, rake it with the aid oi ?(
