Mr. Mays has Just come from The Dadtes
where ho . sold on this trip orders tor
$10,000 worth of goods Which his Arm,
Mason, Ehrman & Co., have had to rush

minds htm of times In the '60's when
t'hie groat pack trains were carrying the

of tihclr long charUihed hope of getting

They are today finishing an Immense

ranged to store their wheat until It can
