Editor News: After reading the news and not seeing a letter from Indiana, I am tempted to try and pull the old Hoosier state up in the ring, for the Hoosier has quite a number of things to boast of. I have seen thousands of roads but never have I seen the country covered with roads made of Rock and gravel like I find around Attica. I think if some of the farmers around Columbia could see Indiana as it is, I would find a good road from Columbia to Gradyville, this fall. I have just been in Attica for three weeks and find it one of the cleanest towns in western Indiana. Attica is located on the Wabash river and has a population of 5.00U and if one would judge from the amount of fish that can be seen along the river that we have one of the greatest fish ports in the State. We have the best natural park in in Indiana, and the farmers are reaping a fine crop of oats and if the good Master .will give us one more goad rain, we will not want for bread until the harvest time comes again. I am glad to hear of old Columbia coming to the front with the Railroad I think it is one of the best things Adair county has done in many years. Must say I am still employed by the Singer Sewing Machine Co., and have a nice business, which is getting better every week. Af ter wishing my many friends success through life and extending them an invitation to in Attica when bound for the West, I will close with renewed 7:hopesrthat I vwillbe with you -- morning Kept a number of our citizens from attending the Fair.
