lent of a city delivery as petitioned
v citizens sometime ago. A map
f the city was furnished him by city
uthorities and the proposed Lrri-j
ry was thoroughtly gone over by j
nsptctor Garrison and Postmaster
)ickey. Impression is gained that
onditions met favorably with the inpector's
views and it 'is belit ved
bat some kind of a delivery service

the near future.
It s understood that Mr. Garrison

SEVEN CAR LOADS CATTLE
SHIPPED OUT THIS WEEK
Seven car loads of cattle
wire sntoivMi li^m Murphy this week
to Richmond, Ky? for grazing j
purposes, and three more are scheduled
to go Friday. These cattle!
some 340 head were bought by Mr..
J. W. Adams, of Richmond, Kv..
from a number of cattlemen in
Cherokee and Clay Counties, at n
cost of more than $7,000.00, it is understood.
Among those who sold to Mr.
Adams, arc the following: J. L. Fain.
Harry Atms, A. Z. Roberts. Geo;
l.ovingood, S. C. Gentry, J. L". Far- <

from 4*ic to 6c per pound. Mr. j
Fain's lot of some 21 head bringing)
more than $000.00, or the high<stj!
price paid for any of this shipment. J1
This was said to have been due to j"
the fact that Mr. Fain's cattle were I
of the best grade of cattle sold, j'
being of the famous Aberdeen-;1
Angus blood. However, all the cattle j1
sold were of a high grade, and it is ,s
thought that most of those selling |
will restock with an even higher 12
This is quite a stimulus to the j
cattle industry in this section, ar. i jS
it is understood that Mr. Adams'1
stated he would return to Murphv!3
