They had harvested a large erop of berries this year, over 150 bushels having been picked aud shipped Saturday week. It is not known where the brothers have gone to. All the property has been attached by Sheriff Judson in the interest of the creditors, all of whom have agreed to let the claims of the children for work done be settled first.
