"WHKAT AVERAGES ABOUT
FIFTEEN BUSHELS l'EIl ACRE
Cy Itussoll, who has been opcrntliiR
his threshing outfit for tho past threo
weeks and Is now working in tho Mlg
ncll section, said yesterday afternoon
that tho host yield so far was from a
ten aero field near Blgnoll, this field
averaging thltry-ono bushels to the
ncro. "So far as I have worked with
tho machine," said Mr. Russoll, "tho
.average for tho territory covorcd will
not exceed fifteen bushels, and tho
wheat Is not only light in weight, gen
orally speaking, but much of it Is
Binutty. Tho straw in many flolds is
very heavy, and had tho head filled and
tho berry not havo shriveled tho yield
iu many instances would havo reached
forty bushols to tho aero."
Tho yield of wheat pe'r aero in Lin
coln county howover, seems to be a
ittlo abovo tho stato average, which is
placed at fourteen bushels. This stato
yield means that in tho eastern part,
whoro land has been selling for $175
to $225 per acre, tho crop is not ns
good as in tho western part, whoro
good land averages In prlco just about
half as much.
In Keith, Douol and Choycnno coun
ties, and especially around Big
Springs and Chappoll, tho wheat yield
is said to bo around twonty-flvo bus
hels to tho aero.
