While not an excessive amount has be-?n harvested in this vicinity it is yielding from to 40 bushels to the acre which is very good, and the wheat is of a very fine grade, weighing about 60 pounds to the bushel, wl ;ch is considerably above the aver ge for this locality.

The score then stood 3 3. ing in this locality, that spread an even inch of the fluid over the ground. It was accompanied by a vivid display of lightning and plenty of deep bass thunder. The demonstration lasted for perhaps an hour or more and proved a wonderful thing for the growing corn, much of which has begun to tassel. It also helped potatoes and other crops, though it delayed for a short time the threshing of wheat. But it was scheduled by the Almighty to reach us in good time, and at an acceptable moment, and farmers and all of us are elated. Corn has never made more marvelous growth than it has the past two weeks. It fairly leaped from tha ground and where the crop looked very discouraging a few weeks ago, it now has caused farmers to take ho lie and believe that, with a propitious fall, there will be much corn in this localty, at least. Win. Tayne came to town last Saturday evening bearing all the evidence needed to show he had come out second best in an encounter with some person or subject, for his nose was split along the bridge, in a vertical direction and one eye needed a poultice. Inquiry developed the information that he was mowing some hay, brought to his barn loft by a sling, when one of the slings broke and a piece of it hit him right in his face. It was most painful, but despite this, and the flow of the red, he continued atw ork and finished the job before he sought the services of his family physician. The Bourbon Fish and Game Protective Association was consigned another shipment of big mouth bass minnows for the Tippecanoe river, last week, the fish arriving last Saturday.

Ginter, Mrs. Minor Vining and Mrs. Abbott, to get together for a good time at the Dillingham home, and they did. It was one of those rare occasions that reminded them of their youthful days at the old home, and the table groaned with the good things to eat, but did not compare to the extraordinary social time they had. Miss Lou Borton was a guest of honor at the time, as she and Mrs. Abbott live together and have many good times there. Mrs. Dillingham certainly entertained all of them well.
