Mr. Shuntzrand sons from St.

cultivating their corn and potatoes.
Some of the St. George people
ard spending their summer vacation
at Pine Springs, Ariz., about 20 miles
south of here, where the nights are
cool and only a few hours ride on a
horse will "land you at the jumping
off place, along the Grand Canyon
of the Colorado River.
The dry weather is still at Mount;
Trumbull, although some places in
the valley have had some heavy-showers.
Many of the reservoirs in the
valley have been replenished with
water, after long dry periods, but up
to this date we have not had much
at Mount Trumbull. All the reser
voirs are dry, and everyone is hauling
water from the sections where the
rain fell. Crops look good here but
are very much in need of rain, and if
rain don't soon come the harvest will
be light. Owing to the extra wet
winter, the range is still good. Stock
is doing fine. Most of the people
here are working reservoirs and mak
ing them deeper, trying to overcome
our main drawback, which is being
without water. We invite people
that are looking for a dry land farm
to come and see this country for I will
insure them that this is a dry farming
countr. Be sure to take a barrel of
along. There is plenty of grass to
turn out on.

Your tire man will frequently
advise you to equip your new tire
with a brand nqw tube, replacing

seem to be an attempt to sell a

the tube has (been worn and
