Milton, Ill., June 25.
A bran new boy at Al. Johnson's and one at Hardin Barrett's last week.
The crop prospect in this part of the county is better than for the last ten years. Wheat is very fine both in quality and quantity. Corn is not large but clean and in good color, and the season is all that is needed to make an abundant crop.
Mrs. H. E. Brown was taken to the insane hospital last week, at Jacksonville.
C. E. Bolin, our banker, is building on, remodeling and repairing his dwelling quite extensively.
Judging by the new furniture Wes. Deemer bought last week, one would think there was something going to happen.
Some of the Republican candidants are around shaking with the boys, but I don't think it any use, for tho Democrats will all have shoes this fall.
