Another runaway team last Saturday got scared at Dr. McQUARY

We got a glimpse of Sheriff ROWE last week but we had business off just then
and did not wait to promise to vote for him.

Miss Jennie STEWART returned from a months visit to Brownwood last Sunday
accompanied by Miss Alice BARNES, who is visiting friends in town. Dr.
TERRY and family are visiting Esq. HALEY. The Doctor is one of our old
schoolmates and has a host of friends here who would like to see him
occupying his old position.

Messrs Henry HALL and Robert JOYCE started for the Colorado River Thursday
where they expect to spend a week or two fishing and hunting. They took
Uncle JACKLONG to drive the teams and cook.
