Wheat is ripening rapidly. Huekleberries don't promise much this seasou . Elmer Mills still walks with difficulty- without liis caiie. Oats are heading out, but the erop is motstly backward and will not be heavy. Cherries and hay are the crops demanding attention just now and ara being suceessfully secured. Last Friday evening Mr. John Fiegel's young folks, and some others, had a dance on their new barn floor. Mrs. Peters, of Jackson, was the guest of Mrs.Jas. H. Webb, during the latter part of last and the first of the present week. Miss Maude Hastings, who has boen spending several months with hrr father and ïielatives in Albany, N. Y., is expected home soon. Hay makinr has begun in earnest, this week, with a moderate erop. Some kind of worm has eaten the bloom off the clover, to a considerable extent. If the second erop is eaten as bad as the Tirst has been, there will be no clover seed this fall. Aa accident which came near resulting seriously, happened to George Sutton, wMIe driving on the gravel road, a few days elnce. SometMng broke about the harneas, when the horse began kicking, striking Mr. Sutton several times. Becoming unmanageable, it jumped a barbed wire fence, wrecking tlie carriage and injuring itself.
