Wheeling and dealing with horses

G.R. Smith of Johnsburgh is the proud owner of the handsomest cutter in town. Chester Mitchell has sold his farm in Minerva to Orrin Kellogg.

Henry Brown, foreman of the Eagle Nest Club's property at Blue Mountain Lake was recently in Warrensburgh to buy a team and found just what he wanted at the farm of Arthur Morrison. He drove home with a fine pair of horses for which he paid $500. Mr. Morrison bought the team from Eugene Murphy of Chestertown.

In other news, at the home of William LaFlure in Pottersville there is much rejoicing over the arrival of a son who came on Christmas night. The question is, will young LaFlure be as good a horse trader as is his grandfather, Uncle Joe LaFlure?
