At last some of the leading city

The Enterprise ( Ansolmo ) has a
creditable wrlteup on the court

yet. 'Its a pleasure to read an ar

Custci1 County .
In 1910 Custer county rank first
In the production of corn , fourth In
potatoes and fourth In alfalfa. Fol
lowing Is the yield. Corn 6,151,850
bushels , potatoes 187,450 bushels ,
alfalfa 72,028 tons. This Is a won-1
derful showing when we look back
twenty years and think of Custer
county farmers driving a binder in
the grain fields and the yield hard
ly sufficient to return the seed , and
alfalfa at that time not known here.
We are on the way to first place
