such a merry time of it that ' they
will not be critical about this issue
We are informed that in various
sections. of the county tuere is a
tendency to enter into walnut cul
ture. The" prevailing opinion is
that English '".walnuts will "do
splendidly in this section and many
hundreds of trees will ' have been
planted before another vear" rolls
around. Should the culture of this
crop prove profitable it will be a
big thing for Benton ceunty. t : ;
