DUNCANVILLE DOTS.

_______

The Yield in Cereals--Cotton
Looks Promising.

Special to the Times-Herald.
     D
UNCANVILLE, Tex., July 24.--Threshing is about over in this section. Wheat and oats have turned out fairly well. Fifteen bushels to the acre for wheat and thirty-five bushels for oats is somewhere near the general average. Corn will be first rate in this immediate neighborhood, but we understand in the greater portion of the county south and east of here, corn has suffered for rain and will not make more than half a crop. Cotton looks well and unless "Mr. Boll Worm" steps in to prevent, it will make a large yield.
     Prof. B. F. Moore, principal of the Duncanville school will leave this week on a short visit to his old home in Alabama.
     Mrs. S. H. Finley, who has been very low and not expected to live for several weeks, is reported convalescent.
