Alturas and Reno but has widened it

articles of incorporation the' inference
may be drawn that the company con
templates railroad building in Central

for the construction of a line from

The amendment calls for construction
of this line aa well as for the building
of a line from Goose Lake through the
counties of Lake. Crook, and Wasoo.

crop waa harvested by , E. Keller, the

bushels of fine Wheat. " being 'an ' aver

harvested 5i00 bushels of barley from
140 acres, or a little in excess of 3$
bushels to the acre. ' The latter yield

35 bushels of wheat to the acre is
