C. W. Gibson, S. P. Howard, John
Terhune, Doc. Watson and a whole gob
of Litchfields elite, were over this week
courting, and viewing this land of corn
and wine, they have to come over here

Last night about six o'clock during
a thunder storm, J. W. Bradley, the

after putting his team in tne barn he
cause out and apparently was fixing
an umberella which he has over his
wagon seat when be was struck . The
back of bis neck and his breast was
burnt to a blister as though done by
fire, and some of the hair was burned
from his head. It is not supposed
that bis injuries will prove fatal.
Someof our citizens tell us that they
have quit taking the daily papers since
we hare our bulletin service perfected.
They get Just what the dally contains

its charm. Lookout for the North
western Bulletin every evening at 7
o'clock, and get the news fresh from
Sampson land.
J. K. Pearson, from Litchfield, dropped
In to see us last Monday, while in the
city. Mr. Pearson says they arc having
plenty of rain and fine prospects for a
good crop this season, but nevertheless
the town is undergoing a drouth that is
liable to last until next spring. But
then they probably can make arrange
ments with ruin maker Wright to have ii
