In IJ > e way they do It : They turn on
Kim electric light about 2 o'clock In the

HAY HIGH PRICED.
Rise In Price of Land Makes Hay
Scarcer Than Ever.
Sioux City , March 23. Hay is from
$1 to $1.50. a ton higher than It was
a year ago. The price has made this
advance In the last three" weeks , and
there has been a noticeable shortage.
The condition Is duo both to the set
tling of the lands formerly used for
Tiay and to the storm conditions that
have kept down farm deliveries.
"I look for the hay market to con
tinue strong until the new crop conies
In , the first half of July , " aald Will-
lam Slaughter , of the Akron Milling
company , who has Just returned from
a tour of the hay lands around O'Neill ,
In Nebraska , and In South Dakota.
"Wo can't toll what conditions will
be after the new crop comes In , but I
think the market until then will run
from fl to $1.50 a ton higher than a
year ago. The present shortage Is
due to the had weather conditions
which have made It Impossible for the
farmers to haul their hay , but the sot
tllng up of the lands is having a more
permanent effect. The development
of the country Is making these lands
too valuable to bo loft to wild hay. We
must look to the sandy lands In went
orn Nebraska for a large part of out
supply. There has been n strong de
mand lately. Dakota City recently
ordered three cars from us , whereat
they used to grow a goat deal of hay
across there on the bottoms. Up north'
west of Vormllllon , where they once
had such a ( iimnttty of hay , they say
that they will from now on have to
ship It In. The land Is going under
cultivation rapidly. Sections from
which wo could get any quantity oi
hay live years ago do not now pro *
duce a ton. Out O'Neill way there 'E '
plenty of hay , but the western demand -
mand , Colorado In particular , has been
the heaviest over known , and has cut
down the surplus that would have
come to this market. "
