Do You Want Cash.
J. H. Hallet wants all the people to pick blueberries and he will pay cash for the same at his trading post near the railroad bridge. Do not take trade for berries as some of the people did last year, but go to him and get cash and trade where you like. "Cash is king" and Hallett is the king.
J. H. HALLETT.

Last Saturday afternoon a small barn belonging to J. H. Hallett, at the Indian trading post, caught fire by some accidental cause.
