Downer has bought about 60 acres of the Michael Savage farm three miles southwest of this place. The farmers are more hopeful than they have been for many years. The good prices and good prospect for crops warrant it. It has been dull intown thisweek. The farmers have been pushing plowing and sowing with unusual vigor, because of the lateness of the season. Secretary Cavanugh of the county school examiners held an examination of teachers here last Friday. There was a large attendance and quite a number failed to get certificates. The concert at the Town Hall Tuesday night, by the Congregational people, was a good success. The attendance was good and the music very creditable. It gave them a good lift on their organ fund. The markets have taken a big tumble since one week ago. A reaction from the late advance and good erop prospects did it. Red wheat now brings about $1.07 and white, $1.05; rye, 80 cents; oats, 55 cents; butter, 18 cents; potatoes, 85 cents; beans, $1.60.
