The potato crop this year is one
of the largest for many years. Re
ports come from the potato fields in
the western counties that many of
the fields will not be dug on account
of the low prices that they are bring
ing on the market. The high freight
rates will make the shipping of po
tatoes prohibitive to any great ex
tent. The local crops of tubers in
Holt county is extra large, and with
a little outside assistance the de
mands of the county can be cared for
without any trouble.

The hunting season on ducks and
geese opened Saturday morning.
These game birds are very scarce in
this part of the county and those who
v)|ere hunting in this Vicinity had
poor luck. There seems to be a
scarcity of ducks over in the lake
districts of the southern and south
western part of the county where in
former years they were plentiful.
The territory in the vicinity of Cham
bers and in several localities in the
southern part of the county, is ‘posted
against hunters mostly because of
the pot hunters who migrate from the
eastern part of the state about the
time the season opens, and kill otf
the ducks and chickens. These hunt
ers kill more game than they can care
for. The farmers of the south coun
try are considerably “worked up”
over the treatment given them by
hunters who seem to care but little
for the damage they do to the country
by carelessly starting prairie fires
which did untold damage to them last
year. The foreign hunters are caus
ing the local sports considerable
trouble and there seems to be no way
to remedy the difficulty exedpt strin
gent action on the part of the people
