Making Good as Auctioneer.
W. R. Y'oung, better known in
this locality as "Rex," has sure
been making good this season as
an auctioneer. While he has
devoted a great deal of time for
the past few years to this profes
sion, this is the first season that
Rex has really been given an op
portunity lo properly display his
ability in the ring. He has had
a number of sales here this sea
son, the last of which was the
one held by Enoch Moreland on
the 30th of March, at which time
he made good in the fullest sense
of the term, and Mr. Moreland
was more than pleased with the
results. He is a sticker for the
high dollar all the lime, and we
believe will get as much, if not
more, money than any of the
older men in the ring.
