he has not received a cervt of the
revenues or the Industries of the

by Vollva to his own uses or turned

If you haven't cleaned your back
yard, lis time to begin.
Celina. Texas, July 2l!. Cclina
j was visited yesterday with a suc-
I t ussive downpour of rain which
| from all apearances was very gener-
| al. Rain was not needed in this
I section at present, the ground be-
j ing hardly dry enough to plow In
some localities. There has been
J but very little land broken for
' wheat to date. The fields have a
j very heavy growth of weeds and
j grass, and if (his ''ain continues
I much longer, it certainly will make
a hardship for the lartners in get-
ting their land in shape for n whei^
crop. Corn has had till the rain
needed to insure a good corn crop.
Cotton is making a rapid growth.
No insects reported as yet, but wtn
a continuation of damp weather
they will be looked for. A Htnall
per cent of the cotton crop still has
some weeds and grass.
I brushing season, with the excep-
tion of a few small scattering crops,
! is about over.

The front and Interior of Gene
Martin's barber shop on East Louls-
