On account of the extreme bad weather, I will be unable to have my mules at places and dates as advertised, but will have a car load of fine stock at Farmerville to-day; and also a car load, in charge of Mr. Boss Aulds, at Junction City. At both of these places I will keep a lot of mules, and saddle horses and family broke mares during the season. Parties wanting stock will find it to their interest to see me before purchasing. —J. D. Baughman
