He the) proceeded to argue his sde

Atwater says he met a stranger at
linker .t Garrison's saloon In Main
street last night. The stranger sug
gested that they go to the Salvation

Such demands are being made by

developments show that this figure
will undoubtedly be Increased by be
tween one and two millions of bush

will got but little of tho 1904 wheat
crop In the Northwest.
In discussing the wheat situation
one of the leading railroad men of
this city said:
There nro probably nov 500 carH
loading for Immediate shipment East.
From one exporting tlnn alone we
have an order' for 80 cura for Immedi
ate use at different towns in the Pa

of large size, culling for from 20,000
to 30,000 bushels each. This heavy

the entire crop Is used up, hut ns to
this no one can tell. This mostly
