Two neeks ago we made local mention of the fact that Mr. J. M. Collett, had just received from Indiona a fine lot of Colswold sheep. Since then in conversation conversation with .Mr. Gorrell we learn that these sheep were imported from Canada by Mr. Collett and that upon bisremov- «' to this county ho bad them shipped out. Ho DOW has six ewes and five lambs of this celebrated stock. The flock of which they were part averaged 15} pounds of wool each, last year They aro very large, fine fleshed, and their wool is of an exceeding fine quality. In addition to the sheep Mr. Collett brought out four head of fine short horn Durham cattle. This stock took first premium aud sweepstakes at tbe State fair held at Indianapolis, tor several years. He also has the pure bred Poland China swine, also State fair premium stock; and high class Brahma chickens. The addition of snch thoroughbred stock to that already in our county is a matter of congratulation to the citizens of the neighborhood and we trust that more such men ar 3Ir. Collett will do likewise. He has rented Mr. Muth's farm in Marmaton township, we understand - ^ 1. . - 1 for the present year; but it is only a ma matter of time until he buys and settles good.
