Forest City - Patrick Boylan, the Forest City all-round athlete, is in training for the APA races and promises to make it interesting for some of the beardless youths that think they can run. We'll bet our shekels on Patrick, if they’ll give him start enough.

Harford - Harry VanBuskirk has had a well located and has in his employ W.I. Carpenter and Leslie Hawley for the purpose of sinking it down to the required depth. He is hopeful of finding pure water, which has been a doubtful question as regards the health of his family. He will escape last summer's ordeal of sickness if bad water was the cause.

Rush - Two hen turkeys owned by M.B. Perigo showed singular and unprofitable conduct this spring. They visited their nests daily, as good hen turkeys should, but failed to lay eggs and after the season of laying they began to sit on the empty nests with as much persistency as though they had a nest of eggs. The owner rid himself of them.
