The Cunt That Failed
Pirn Clly and Oiiw of Dm Trie
boy Jim, Marvin and Claud
went hunting for doer and bear thl
week in the region of Crouae moun
tain. They saw thrt doer and one
bear, and Sim and Marvin shot
away considerable ammunition with
out materially disturbing the equan
imity of the game. Sim waa so
euro of hia doer that ho waited
until it reached a apot where the
carcass would be timy to handle
before blazing away. Later he dl
cowriSI that his sights had been
raided - he doesn't know how or
when. Sim and Marvin both shot
freely at the bear, but as it was in
the j)oor light of early dawn they
had some excuse for missing. The
leader's rH)rtingJ editor Is, a bit'
peeved anyhow, as he has been de
prived of several "baits" of bear
meat and venison which he feels to
have been legitimately his due and
which he confidently expected upon
hearing of the great hunt.
Morrow County Crops
It. W. Hrown canto up by tiain
yesterday from his Morrow county
ranch, the roads being too poor for
motoring. "Rufw" is well plcucd
with his crop this year, considering
thv'seawn. He had an average of
181 bushels per acre from SOU acres
of turkey ml and hybrid wheat,
some of which went S3 bushels to
the acre. All of it grades as No.
1. Andy Douglas had between
4500 and 4f00 sacks from 640
acre. '"Rufe" says that It Is
merely a question of farming care
fully in Morrow to get profitable
results. One farmer who handles
something like 3000 acres and had
a very poor crop this year, admits
that ho would be better off if . he
gave half his land away. On the
other hand, by good farming, the
Irvine boys among the new comers
in Morrow made an average of 20
bushels of No. 1 wheat from their
entire acreage. Land values are
advancing, he says, and general con
ditions are encouraging with the ex
ception of the roads, which will put
anything but a "tin lizzie" on the
blink. As to water, he has found
plenty by drilling to a depth much
loss than is ordinarily necessary in
his neighborhood near lone.
