                                                     [Posey handled Sheep.]

                                               FROM THE NEWSPAPERS.
Winfield Courier, Thursday, March 4, 1886.
R. C. Posey was over from Otter Monday. Out of his sixteen hundred head of sheep, the severe winter only turned up the toes of thirty. His care was very careful and brought his flock out in excellent trim.
