While the correspondent at this place has been somewhat negligent for the past few months in sending in the news from this little coiner of the globe, we are glad to know that the good people of this vicinity have not been entirely neglected in being represented through the columns of your paper as some one has kindlv sent in for publication items of news at intervals for the past few weeks. Hope we will hear from them again as it is always a pleasure to read the news from one's "homestead," especially when the energy and effort it requires during these warm days to collect and send in these items are made by some one else. Selfish, you may say, so be it; only keep on with the good work and lend a helping hand.

Every effort was made to get him on higher ground, but eyery time he was brought almost to the top he would begin to struggle and down he would go. At Jast the rescurers conceived the idea of filling the house with straw and bringing him out by this means. They did so and the horse slipped forth from his prison without any injuries and none the worse for his experience. .
