One of the best indications we
have that the old town is picking

dwellings heretofore uneccupied and
allowed to become somewhat delap
idated, are being rejuvenated and
fixed up generally. There can be
no more flattering state ef affairs

Tuesday Jessie Wiley sold bis
team of blacks to Bar. Frazier,
the well known liveryman of
Portland. It is understood that
the price paid fos these fancy
animalsjwas the highest ever paid
by Mr. Frazier, : una ae has Been
bay in horses in this section for
many years. After purchasing
the animals the Portland bayer
stated that be would take twenty ;
more bead at the lame figure
provided they were as haadse-me, -well
mated and well bred as
those ha secared of Mr. Wiley.
Nearly everybody in tows ad
mired this team. Jessie says bis
business will prevent him from
having anything - to do with
horses tn the future, but bis love
or a handstme equine ij so
strong' that soatfi of his friends

There is money in good horses.
A horse of rood velnts. well
broke and well bred will nearly
always bring, at least, a fair
priee. A short time ago Henry
Duan sold a span tf draft horses
to the Sklpton Bros, fer $400 or
better. A couple of days ago
rank Whitaker sold a siagle
driving animal for $125, and
other horse sales ceuld be cited
to show that good horses are
worth fair prices.

years ago. This sample of
