COLD CUTS THE LAMB CROP
pne Grower Pays $5,000 For Fd
The cold weather and excessive
snowfall of the recent , winter, has
worked a great hardship on some
Khcepmcn of this section. Some of
them were caught with insufficient
feed, being compelled to buy same
in order to keep their floclfa, up. J.
P. Abbott was compelled to pay out
an extra $5,000 for feed, and many
others paid out sums ranging Into
the thousands. Jlmmle Abbott says
the vigorous weather cut down the
lamb crop considerably. The same
condition obtains with other sheep
men. A;, a consequence a lesson has
been learned by many sheepmen.
Many of them are either planting or
getting ready to plant additional
patches of alfalfa. They realize it
is cheaper to grow alfalfa themselves
than to pay $30.00 ton for it dur
ing the winter.

Rumor has It that a road leading
from Oak Springs to Maupin and
following the river, will be construct

road would follow one of those used
when the O. T. was built and which
was used to bring supplies over.
The new road would follow thru
the R. O. Johnson place, thence
down the river, making several
