Yesterday the Spring creek school

not , probably on account of rain.
Mr. and Mrs. Sinchell of the metro

The joyful news which is ours to
bring is that 1 $ inches of rain fell on
last Sunday night. How thankful we
all should be for the great blessing.
It must fill every tongue with praise
to the Great Giver.
There does not seem to be the de
sire here to leave the country that
there has been heretofore. Almost
every paper we take up , and they are
many , also nearty every letter , has
something telling of the troubles of
the place from whence they came.

I am here to tell you. Mr. Editor ,
that Coleman precinct is going to
have some corn. There will be
enough for home consumption , unless
we are very much mistaken. It
seems hardlj possible with the great
heat we have had that there can be
any of that precious production , but
we have kept our ej'es and ears open
and know whereof we speak. Cane
will make a crop ; late garden , ex
cepting onions , is extremeh7 poor.
Friday afternoon , 18 men and 13
teams were on hand to thresh for J.
Kelly. Eight teams were to work
around the machine and the others
to haul grain from the field. The
machine struck up its tune and all
went merry as marriage bells until
one of Mr. Kelley 's teams was seen
running away. Frank Marsh was on
the wagon holding the lines and the
team lun over shocks , making things
lively for a time. Frank held firmly
to the lines and soou brought the
hoi ses to a standstill. Quite a scare
but no damage. The threshing con
tinued until quitting time , when it
was found that over 400 bushels had
been , threshed. The men marched
into the house Indian file to a com
fortable supper prepared by Mesdames -
dames Robert Traphagan and Hen
ry Mitchell. Jeffersonian simplicity
reigned supreme and the conversa
tion was lively and interesting. "How
pleasant thus to dwell below in fel
lowship and love " ' . The repast finish
ed , the good byes said , the farmers
started on their journey , each to the
bosom of his familj * .
O where are my squashes I planted
so many , There won't be enough to
bring in a penny. Go ask the big bugs
that all the long day , Did gnaw at
the vines- and then hide awa3T .
O where are m3r snap-beans , I plant
ed long rows , But where the3T are
gone nobody knows. They withered
and dried up and soon bid adieu , At
least the3T are gone excepting a few.
O where are pumpkins to make
pumpkin pies , I planted and planted
and thought I was wise ; I hoed and I
hugged them hour b3T hour , But there
isn't one left that bugs didn't devour.
O where are nry tomatoes so lovely
to eat , I planted and hoed them but
still I am beat. Vile worms pruned
the vines , worms large and green , And
there ' s not a nice tomato to be seen.
O where are my cucumbers , is there
anything stranger , 'Tis sure a mistake
that 3rou can 't starve a granger. So
don't look for pickles is 3Tou sit at my
table. To find them you surel3T will
not be able.
O where are my melons both musk
and the water , None other tried hard
er to raise than this daughter. Now
friends I fear that you will be beat ,
When I say I've no melons to bring on
O where is the cabbage I hoped I
should raise. Such monstrous fair
heads for people to praise. There
isn't a. head , is it all through vain
glory That I am to tell such a pitiful
O-where are my chickens they came
on so early , And bothered so much
that my hubby was surly. The mites

time , A gnawing and eating those
chickens of mine.
The mites grew fat , but the chick

them dead in the coop. Good b3'e to

Four tramps dressed as women have
been doing this part of the state , this
