John McGrogan and B. F. Rusch have each built new fancy wire fences in front of their respective residences. They look very neat.

On Tuesday last J. H. and H. F. Sargent each received a couple of baskets of nice grapes and plums from their old friend, C. N. Bentley of Freeport, Ill., who spends several weeks hunting in this vicinity every fall. The COURIER returns thanks to "Hi" for liberal samples of the fruit.
