not of a department to of on A is ~fi^ »> ^ ago ', lfc wil1 ke remem- hno i ' * he McEnroe herd of some 4,000 head of cattle was disbanded, and the owners notified to come and' get thefr cattle, which many did.

The ^entire neighborhood is excited, and the occupation of the herders for the summer is gone." What will the report be by the time it gets as far as Chicago? As nearly as we can learn, the above herd was not wholly disbanded, but about 2,000 head are still being herded there. Many farmers whose farms adjoin the herd ground have had their crops more or less damaged, and have claims against Mr. McEnroe for a considerable sum. But the report as given in the Hawk-Eye is wholly.unfounded.
