Ifrtfaroe. ' THIRTY-FIFTH YEAR. NORTH PLATTE, NEB., AUGUST 15, 1919. 'V No. 62 "WHKAT AVERAGES ABOUT FIFTEEN BUSHELS l'EIl ACRE Cy Itussoll, who has been opcrntliiR his threshing outfit for tho past threo weeks and Is now working in tho Mlg ncll section, said yesterday afternoon that tho host yield so far was from a ten aero field near Blgnoll, this field averaging thltry-ono bushels to the ncro. "So far as I have worked with tho machine," said Mr. Russoll, "tho .average for tho territory covorcd will not exceed fifteen bushels, and tho wheat Is not only light in weight, gen orally speaking, but much of it Is Binutty. Tho straw in many flolds is very heavy, and had tho head filled and tho berry not havo shriveled tho yield iu many instances would havo reached forty bushols to tho aero." Tho yield of wheat pe'r aero in Lin coln county howover, seems to be a ittlo abovo tho stato average, which is placed at fourteen bushels. This stato yield means that in tho eastern part, whoro land has been selling for $175 to $225 per acre, tho crop is not ns good as in tho western part, whoro good land averages In prlco just about half as much. In Keith, Douol and Choycnno coun ties, and especially around Big Springs and Chappoll, tho wheat yield is said to bo around twonty-flvo bus hels to tho aero.
