Mr. Arraamlth says It is gratifying
to observe th rapid Increaae of the
wheat acreage In eastern Washington.
In 1904, he says. Franklin county had
70,000 acres of land sown to wheat This
seaaon it report 200,000 acres of wheat
fields. Douglas county had 220.000
acres In wheat In 1904 and this season
it reports 275,000 acres of wheat Much
of the present wheat fields of Franklin
county, and also a large amount of th
wheat area in the southern part or
Douglas, were thought a few years ago
fit lor notning out gr axing purposes.
There has also been a large Increase In
