Several hundred of the ranchers
about Frultland were badly disap
pointed laat Saturday because the
film for the free picture show fail
ed to arrive. They will not be fool
ed again, if the association can help
It. At a meeting of the association
last Monday steps were taken to pre
vent a recurrence of the delay which
was due to the fact that the films
were shipped to Naw Plymouth In
stead of to Frultland.
Hereafter the plcturea will come
one day sooner and go to New Ply
mouth later. The business men
were more wrought up over the mis
take than the ranchers.

given here wan the action of the

reason for this Is that the bank al
ready has no much money on hand
on which it has to pay interest that
there was nothing to he gained by
holding county funds and paying two
and a half per cent Interest thereon.
