Wagon-shops filled to overflowing, making new, and repairing old so it will
be better than new.
Meal and feed trade brisk at the little one-horse mill here. They are
selling from 4 to 6 tons a day. Good for a small place!
Daniel BUCKLIN lost a valuable cow, monday; a severe loss to him, for

J. P. HAWKINS is so as to be out some; but has to use four legs now,
instead of two, as formerly.
