to the grain storage bins at the south.
The millins company property, in

about $32,000. There were 15,000
bushels of wheat in the west elevator
and about 10.000 in the east. On the

The damage from shrinkage in the
wheat in the steel storage tank, east
of the elevators, is estimated at $2,500.
There were approximately 20.000
bushels of wheat stored in this tank.
The E. Stockham Grain company

and is prepared to meet the entire
loss. The company is bonded and
carries a state license under the Ne
braska warehouse law, passed by the
last legislature. All wheat stored with
the company is insured and guaran
