Manie Wilson Gets Nine Animals As Investment.

Nine young mules that had been used in the Lovington coal mine, that closed recently, were bought this week by E. C. Manie Wllson of Decatur, who bought them as an investment. The mules, which are young animals and in excellent condition, were removed from the mine some six months or more ago, and when it seemed that the mine was to resume steady operation they were returned to Lovington, but were kept there on pasture until their sale to Mr. Wilson.
