Mr. and Mrs. Barney Devine were about to start for their California home more than two weeks ago, when

one of Mr. Devine's eyes became inflamed and painful, and his suffering became very great. By the latter

part of last week he could scarcely lie down or even sit down, but was obliged to pace the floor continually.

The doctors think the trouble comes from neuralgia of the nerves of the eye.

Turtle hunting seems to be a . . .

dissipation. The Humboldt Republi-

can says: A gang of turtle hunters

are temporarily camped in the . . .

Buckley house. They hail from D . . .

and have been working down there

from Algona. According to the

story this turtle business is a "snap”

—in several senses of the word. [They]

get about $15 per barrel in the east

market, and in the last few months

they have shipped about sixty barrels.

They are operating at present in the

vicinity of the Barney Devine slough.

Barney Devine still takes pleasure in buying cattle as of old. The Humboldt Herald notes his purchasing a

big bunch of cattle and driving them to his farm. He was one of the very first to engage in that industry in

the county, and in doing so showed more wisdom than his neighbors.
