Upoef inquiring of D. F. Stewart,
principal owner ol tho Prineville
Flouring Mills we arc informed that
his machinery it shut down mid has
been for sun e time owing to a siiort
age in grain, and that the supply is at
least 10,000 bushels short ol the local
demand. In view of this fact and al
so that the lime is not fur distant
when the demand wiilb lar in ex
cess of whut it now i i w iy don t
the Crook county (aimers take steps
toward developing the graiu acrea e?
Surely there is money in raising
wheat at n price that is said to aver
age 75 cents per bushel. There is no
country more productive of good
sound grain than our county, and in
stead of having a shortage in our
home D'arkets, we should have grain
and lots ol it, for export.
