/ —One of the best yields of wheat
reportsd this summer was threshed
for Alex. Hickman, near Almota,
Mr. H. had 200 acres of Red Rus-'
sian wheat which yielded 55 bush
els per acre. It is of fine quality,
and will test 60 pounds to the bush-
W. Red Russian is quoted at 62c a
bushel; at which price Mr. Hick
man's 200-acre field yields an av

—The attention of the police is
called to the fact that some young

have \ i using their pocketknives

of these vandals were seen amusing
themselves by cutting initials in I
the bark of a young tree, thereby
insuring its death at an early date. ■
There is no excuse for such an out
rage, and it is hoped the perpetra
tors can be identified and given a j
good stiff fine. It would also be
well to place a detective in the park
until an offender is caught and made
an example. '

Aii attempt was made on Sunday
night last to hold up and rob one of
the many harvest hands now being
paid off from ranches in this vicini
ty. The victim (a young German,
a stranger here) stated that he was
coming to town that evening about
8.30, and when near the I. ().(). V.
cemetery was met by a tall man
the lower portion of whose face ap
peared to be masked with a hand
chief. The latter stopped suddenly
as he was passing the German and
thrusting a revolver at him called
for "hands up." The German, as
he told it, was so taken by surprise
that he threw out both hands in
stantly, and his left hand struck the
gun from the highwayman's grasp.
It fell to the load way, and as the
fellow stooped to recover it, "I gif
him a goot swift kick mit de side of
his het," said the German, "and I
runs for town like de teffle, you bet
you yes." The harvester had $60
in his pocket. It is probable that
some hobo hereabouts had a pretty
sore head the next morning, for the
German wore No. i 1 shoes and they
were proportionately heavy.
