A. M. Arant was in from his
farm Monday and paid this office
a pleasant call. Mr. Arant has
several filbert trees on his farm

the rows of walnuts if so de
sired. Winegar & Co., have sold to
Sullivan & Goodman a seven
horse power gasoline engine of
a new pattern from any that has

air cooled machine and has few
er parts than most of them. We
are glad to see some one take up

has been one for the contentions
of the Herald, that we needed
such an enterprise here. We hope
