Helix People Find Soil Is 53 Feet Deep
and Crop Failures Are Unknown.
Tho wheat growers of tho Helix
country take tho "flattering unction to
their souls" that the capacity of tho
soil In that district for raising wheat
can never bo oxhausted, at least In
this day anil generation. They may be
right, ami If their theory is correct,
they ' aro undoubtedly correct.
Tho surface soil In that rountry con
tinues uninterruptedly clear to bed
rock, being from 10 to 75 feet in
nbundant crop of forage and plonty of
water In the springs and streams.
All livestock sheep, cattle and
horses aro fat, and there Is not

Grain hay Is yielding two tons to
tho acre on nn average, and tho
quality is much bettor than tho grain
hay In most localities, because It was
not frost-bitten earlier In tho season.
In other words, it Is mature hay,
not hny prematurely ripened and
thereforo lacking in nutrition. The

The Helix people couple ho fact
with tho theory that each year the

from tho underlying depths of soil
that have never been reached by the
Hy just what formula this result Is
accomplished they are not prepared
to say, but they have the everlasting
faith, just the same, and the further
fact that the same soil has grown on

the quality is better.

Hon Is now working.

Ing sphere of usefulness and popular
Ity of tho organization.

enlng which seems to have come In
the meeting yesterday evening.

Blood Poisoning Resulted, Necessltat
Ing Radical Treatment.
Sunday last while working about
his threshing machine, M. J. Foster,
of Stage Gulch, accidentally "barked"
a small placo on tho back of his
right hand. He paid no attention to
tho Injury further than to wrap It up
so It would not got hurt easily, and
went about his work. Ry Tuesday,
almost beforo ho realized tho Import
of tho angrily inflamed member, ho
had a well-doveloped case of blood
poisoning on bund. Tho member
swelled nnd pained him so badly as
to be helpless, and ho sought medi
cal treatment for It. Dr. Smith found
that tho poisoned condition was rapid
ly extending to tho arm and shoulder,
and was compelled to adopt radical
treatment at once.
Tho Inflammation Is now confined
to tho hand, and thero Is a good pros
pect of an early recovery without
dnnger of losing tho hand.
