The highest price ever paid In the
history of Gilliam county for. yearling
sheep was paid Friday by F G. Oxman

&. Sons should deliver at the local
j stock yards 6,000 head of yearlings
i after shearing time at $3.00 her head,
j Mr. Smythe says that his yearlings
will shear eight pounds per head, and
he can contract the wool for 20c per
pound any time. The figures mean
that a yearling ',ls worth $5.10 jn this
Trie new. county roadj, grader started !

see the early start in rdad making this
year 'and expect to see the roads in
