WOOL PRICES 25 YEARS AGO.
From an old newspaper file of My
1898, It is found that the price of
wool waa around 8 Mi cents a pound.
The item says that Wm. Penland of
Heppner aold 150,000 pounds at 8tt
cents to Frank Lea of San Francisco.
The year before the same grower
aold his clip at f cents. All of
which reminds us that the "good old
times" of twenty-five years ago had
a few disadvantages to wool grow
ers, anyhow! Globe-Times.
