The Falcon Mills at this place
put wheat at $1.00 per bushei last

siderable excitement among the far
mers, a good crowd of whom were in
town Monday.. A good many of our
farmers had said they would sell
when wheat reached the dollar
mark, but wing to the speculative
sales on the Chicago board up to as
high as $1.13, many of them were in
clined to hold for a higher figure.
Monday's dealings on the stock ex
changes showed a considerable de
cline, however, and large quantities
of wheat have bten coming in to the
Falcon Mills during the week.
Wheat growers will find a full sup
ply of this reliable Fertilizer for sale
