Deal Sirs:—Mr. Parnell wants-
you to Icnow about a most extra
ordinary poplar tree we cut this
afternoin, from which we got
76’ feet of logs. ff'wo S,
four lO, three 12, three 14 and
eight 16 lengths, making a total
of twenty logs.
You might give these ‘figures
to The Eagle man and see if they
can be .'atvn.
Of course this tree forked about
19 feet from the ground and each
prong forked again still higher,
but with these facts, still there is
•vimething abo'-e the ordinary,
for I believe twenty reasonably
■rood logs of the above lengths
have never been gotten from one
tree in diis county before,'
be sorry to lose these partie.
However, since their prospects
will be better there, upon their
dep irture we shall wish themj.he
best of luck toward the making
of a hasty fortune
We are glad to learn that the
coiiiiition of Carl, the youngest
son of our neighbor,^ Mr, D, C,

is hoping how soon he will be
restored to good health.
