Stuart Locomotive: Stuart Slaven has sold his farm just west of the city, to a Mr. Hume, of Illinois. The farm contains 150½ acres and sold for $60 per acre. The crop goes with the farm. The farm is a valuable one and is not regarded as being very well sold. Mr. Slaven has occupied the famr since March 1, and makes in the deal of $1,300, but loses his season's work as he is to give possession at once.
