Two weeks of dj^weather has
enabled farmers to harvest their
wheat and oats, lay by their corn,
and most of them have their cot-
ton in fair condition. A few
days more and the cotton will be
all cleaned out. Some cotton
has only been planted a few days,
and I am not sure all are done
yet. Thrashing begun last week
and wheat will not average more
than five bushels per acre, but
the grain is pronounced very fine.
Oats promise a very light yield.

and some others left last week

said to be verv fine.

having a good effect on the town.
I am told there is not a vacant
house here now and I know o

and, from what I hear, I think
some of the candidates will be
surprised when the vote is
I am sorry to see so little in-
terest in the legislative race.
Some very important /measures
are already before the people
and ought to be discussed. No

Some of our news may be a
little stale. Since The News last
beard from us, we have moved
and are now located on the Luth-
er Clark place, one of the most
comfortable little home in North

can be found anywhere. They

"u?„ man was fined (cost
wre$l0.35). last Monday for
rCujji^rg on the streets. I am told
that complaints have been made
agaitrst several boys for fighting
and other bad conduct. It would
probably pay the boys better to
hoe cotton at $1.25 per day but
may be it would not be so funny.
Mr. Wemplecalled me in a few
days ago to hear a song on his
phonograph. It sung “My Home
in the Southland,” mixed with
“My Old Kentucky Home.” It
happened to be the day I was ex-
pected to be at the big “Home-
Coming” in G'asgow’, Ky., and
make a speech on “Texas.” I
am glad no one s5w my face
while listening and thinking of
the many anxious friends who
were awaiting me in “My Old
Kentucky Home.” A sick wife
kept me from going, and I have
not felt much like writing since.
I think I will go vet and make
that speech. I shall call on Mr.
Wemple again for that song,
which beats any thing I ever
heard on the phonograph.
We had a light shower Wednes-
day evening; little more than a
big dew, but we were glad to get
