I must report to you some of the most ex- traordinary shooting I ever
say, which recurred at the Lima tournament, by Capt. E. E. Stubbs, of Gainesville, Ark.,

world. First, he shot at ten glass balls with a Winchester repeat-
ing-rifle. Sacramento Daily Union — 3 September 1881 (Sacramento, Ca.)

Ark - On last Sunday the buffalo gnats made their appearance in this
and Clayton counties, also in Dunklin county, Mo. in such vast swarms
as to prove very destructive to stock. We were at Clarkton, Mo. at the
time they made their appearance and on our way home the sight of dead
horses and mules along the road, and the reoort of others off the road
was distressing in the highest degree. We have made an estimate as best
we could from the various reports we received on our way home Tuesday,
and think the number of horses and mules that have been destroyed
within two miles of the road leading to Chalk Bluff from that place to
within eight miles of Gainesville will reach 175 or 200, while the
number in and around Gainesville will add at least 25 or 30 more to the
number. We have no report from below but hope it is not so bad in that
direction. A great many farmers have lost all their plow stock while
many others have not enough left to cultivate their farms. This sad
dispensation added to the destitution that existed before has cast a
heavy gloom over our people. Nashville Union and American., April 17,
1875 (Nashville, Tn.)
