TUMALO CROPS FINE

and drain arc Oreat Success.
Alitor Hulletln: Our crojm this
year consist of about 100 acre of
clover, alfalfa and other gramt.
Much of the clover and alfalfa will
go nt least three tons to the acre,
first cutting. Then wo have about
ir0 acres In oats and other grains
but owing to tho latunotw that most
of it was put In we are unable now
to sUite just what thu yield" to tho
ncru will be, but tho crop no doubt
will come on well nnd make n very
satisfactory harvest. We used
nbout CO vound of land plaster to
tho ncru on clover nnd alfalfa, which
are both n grnnd success on our
land. (!. W. WIMKU&SONS.
