give every scrap of news so long as you take no trouble to give the onf readers who are awfully put out at times because we fail to note the arrival or departure of those visiting them or of social affairs The average newspaper man isnt a mind reader and asgets most of his news by pumping coorrn crop was never y thd or rY hence you can almost see the stalks climbing higher and highter Wheat crop has not all been threshed but all the farmers who are through say t grain is much better than usual T oat crop is very good There will be the largest crops of sweet and Irish 1r0askatoes grown for several years The threshing season is at hand and the big traction engine will be traversing our public roads It is a very gentle horse that can meet one of the puffing snorting monsters with equanimity isand many steeds are thrown into paroyxsms of terror at the sight of one In this connection it is well to call attention to the law which requires a messenger to go ahead of the engine ata
