"There is no. "section wherein
crops have failed,0 said Reynolds.
"The corn crop will reach more
than 2,800,000 bushels. The oat
crop is expected to be the big

.The gooji peach crop now being
gathered is an indication that all
fruits will be plentiful this fall.
"This ought to lower beef
prices quite appreciably. But the
price of beef never will be as low
as it was ten years ago. This is

WE GET THIRSTY, TOO
City Council has granted the
placing of twenty bubbly drink
ing fountains in the loop district
Fine business.
But where does the West Side
get off? We get thirsty over here
as well as the loop crowds.
And it's awd-to-one bet that
shoppers in the loop district are
better able to drop in and get an
ice cream soda than West Side
shoppers. Also, the employes in
the loop district are, in a big ma
jority, able .to "hit the tank" of
