that 427 ooles were down between

them hundreds of miles of wire. 1 he
local phone company officials state
their damaee will areatly exceed that
of three weeks ago, when they suf

thought that fully an inch of moist

to get the ground ready for this

only fair, and others the wheat is not
worth saving. Barley and oats are
being. sown. - Some summer tallow

is proving that, that is the proper
method for wheat raising in this
part of the state.
