The following is going the rounds and is a good one: "We heard on the street the other day of a man who claimed he was too poor to take the paper, but all the same he read a notice in one of our county papers, telling how to prevent a horse from slobbering, and sent $1.50 for a receipt.

Mr. Noyes, Greenwood, Wis.


Dear Sir: Enclosed find $1.25 for which please send me the gleaner for one year.


Should have sent it before but have been so busy since we came out here that we neglected sending it. But now we may take a breathing spell for a while as we have things about straightened out and the crops all in.


Everything is growing fine, having had plenty of rain. In fact it has rained nearly all the time the last three weeks and the prospect for good crops looks very favorable. I have a twenty-acre piece of oats in from seed that I brought with me from Clark county and it certainly looks very fine, they being up about four inches now.


There is very little vacant homestead land around here that would be desirable for farming. The way immigrants have been coming in this spring is a caution, there being no less than 175 cars of immigrant goods unloaded at Ray this spring, so you can imagine how fast the country is being settled up. We are located twelve miles from the railroad and one and on-half miles from a store and post office which we have hopes of being a city some day. Two school houses have been erected within three miles of us this spring.


Yours respectfully, -- Ed. Peterson.
