Some of tho ranchers of thia vicin
ity report .that the water la .out on
the meadow lands in fine shape along'
the river and that the prospects for
hg crops were never better. A little
warm weather auch aa we have ex
perienced during the week will
bring the" grass up rapidly and It is
now assured there will be one of the
biggest crops of hay harvested thia
Muiaon for several years. Thia cer
talnly is geed news to jtbe stock men
who have had auch a 'hard time for
the past three years ia buying ex
punsive hay to winter their stock and
find in the spring that the price for
tho stock has not Justified the high
priced forago. Now be will huvo
chance to recover BOtue of' bis Ions
provided tho market docs not inter

a.to tbut when hay is plentiful tho
atock will ho cheaper,
