Henry Giles of this place boasts of having one of the finest driving horses in this part of Whiteside county, and indeed he has, for his fine cold Fannie possesses many qualities that few others do. She is of a most charming color, roan, making her very noticeable aside from her fine movements. This splendid animal also possesses many kind and intelligent qualities. But we must dwell no longer on this subject as Mr. Giles has no desire to sell her and does not care to be bothered with horse buyers as he spends each  moment improving and repairing his fine residence on northern Main Street.
