Important Occurrences Of The
Past Week From Cities
In Our State
Desp Snow Affects Yield,
Moscow While the acreage of fall
eown wheat Is probably about equal
to that of last year In Latah county.
Indications are that the yield win not
be as large, owing to the damage done
by snow on the north slopes. It Is to
be seen now that the great length of
time the snow laid on the amunri
caused much of It to melt from the
bottom, which had the effect of smoth
erlng and rotting the green roots of
the fall wheat. In many fleldt of
otherwise beautiful looking wheat are
spots on the north slopes absolutely
without any grain and In other places
witn a very poor stand.
