Mr. William Newland has one of the most valuable tracts of land in the suburb of this city, one-half mile to the north. Its chief attraction now is its l 3/4-acre strawberry patch. They were now just ripening fast, the first fruit, 700 quarts, having been gathered in the few last preceding days. The crop for the season is estimated at six thousand quarts. They were first sold at fifty cents per quart, but had fallen to thirty cents.- Colorado Farmer.
