Wilsonville, Aug. 26. 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
