A GOOD CROP JMESIED
IN THE H DISTRICT
One of the best yields the Press
has heard of this season, is that of
Marion Hansell, whose entire acre
age yielded him an average of 51
bushels per acre. The 'warehouse
weights gave the first eighty acres
threshed at 50 V bushels per acre.
The remainder of the big field tuvn
ed out better, than the nrst eighty.
Marion is bulking his grain with
one of the new International ma
chines, and the machine did vety
Charles Kirk has had a very suc
cessful harvest run. He figures his
grain is making an average of near
ly 50 bushels per acre. His Feder
ation is testing well.
Watts Brothers big acreage north
of Athena is reported to be .averag
ing better than 45 bushels per acre.
General reports from the Federa
tion fields in this section place' the
average at from 40 to 45 bushels
per acre. . ' . ...
Every one of the new International
combines put in the field by Rogers
& Goodman, have been working Sat
isfactorily, from all' reports. Tha
season is an ideal one in which to
try out the machines. They are tak
ing care of the heavy straw growth
without' difficulty and cleaning and
saving the grain in first-class shape.
E. A. Dudley, after finishing har
vesting his crop with his big outfit,
pulled in and threshed Til Beckner's
crop, south of Athena. Eighty acres
of the St. Dennis place netted Mo.
Dudley 50 bushels per acre. The re
mainder of the field went 47 bushels
to the acre. '
A number of sales are reported
over the week-end, but general sel
ling pf the crop is not indicated by
the" present tone of ' market quota
tions. The Weston Leader reports that
the new $1400 cleaner installed by
Manager. Price in the Weston Ware
house' company's Weston elevator is
doing , excellent work. Of larger
capacity than the machine which it
replaced it enabled two men Monday
to take, in 90 tank loads of wheat
or about 9900 bushels. The best
previous ; day's record, made last
year with the old cleaner, .was. 83
tank loads. ; After being run through
the elevator, wheat is now almost
clean enough for seed.
