Respectfully, Albert Voutsler, of the Battletown neighborhood, is either a good farmer or has some mighty productive land. On one-haacre of land this season he raised sixty bushels of Irish potatoes. He has sold several bushels of potatoes at $lM per bushel. After harvesting his potato crop he sowed this half acre in turnips. His turnip crop yeild was MtH bushels, which he has sold at 50c per bushel. Potatoes $75, and turnips $ 101.

This monument should be erected by popular subscription in memory of all who lost their lives either on the battlefield or in Camp. I suggest that a committee of six, one from each Magisterial District, be appointed by the County Judge to take the matter in hand. Louisville has already taken the matter up for J elf crson County and Mayi .'ith has appointed a coin-mitke charge of same. 1 tr.ut the editor will agitate this matter through the rnhWII of the Gacttc and t li.tt Grayson county will be the first in the State to erect a momumeut in memory of her fallen heroes.
