We have a class of man her who are land and stock poor; at least the stock are poor, They have plenty of land, hut they turn their stock out on the common to worry their neighbor. I say " dog 'em !" I am glad some one started the road question, as we are all more or less Inter ested.

We had quite a little blaze Friday even ing, the 1st, in which Mr. Frank Miller lost his barn and wood shed, along with a year's supply of wood, considerable bacon, a quantity of hay, some farming tools, a lot ol poultry ami onecalf.

The site is conspicuous, and the building will add much to the beauty of the landscape as seen from the south side of the river. While enjoying the hospitality of Mr. James Maybee recently, we had the pleas ure of seeing his nice new oblong fishing pond, thirty feet length by we forget how wide. Said pond Is like Dr. Ingraham's park, which, being the "new addition" to the city of Cherry vllle, Is "extensively laid out but thinly settled." The pond contains three cats and a minnow. The cats spend their time chasing the minnow like a pack of republicans after a farmers' alliance man. One of the recent events of our burg is the creating of a farmers' alliance; about half from each of the political parties. "Create," says Ingersol;, " means to make something out of nothing."
