We have been so crowded with job
work, the last week, that wo could not
give as much attention to the Chief as
we had ought.
Some idiot, writing in the Argus,
from Inavale, vrants to know if the Chief

verely gored as to unfit him for labor for
some time te come.
The weather can be the most pleas
ant, or the most disagreeable, in this
part of the moral vineyard, of any place
we know of. Last Monday was another
ol those nasty disagreeable dusty windy
days that almost cause a man to wish
that he had died iu his cradle.
The season is appreacbitigwhen the
young man with his hair parted in the
middle, takes an innocent mallet in his

floodins this country with circular, offer
