It Is a fact that j hydrants in tho city. All bills aro Worth Platte Is in tho potatoo area 'allowed by the Council unon tho of western Nebraska, Llucoln County nas, produced vast quantities of gooJ potatoes and can do so again. During tho year 1920 Lincoln County farmers sold many thousand bushels of pota-'aI toes on tho streets and in the mar- kets of this city. Theso potatoes wero mostly Bold nt about frost tlmo or when the ' markets were glutted. At thnt time the price is usually the lowest Not many Lincoln County growers aro In a position to storo thoir potatoes and so they pass Into tho hands of local dealers who havo arranged to take caro" of a limited part of tho crop. All potatoes sold in the North Platto markets woro used 'n North Platto. Not ono car of pota toes was shipped out of hero accord ing to tho records In tho freight of fice here. Then in addition to tho entire homo output, North Pintle Im ported sixteen cars of potatoes or approximately 10,000 bushels. That moans wo did not raise within ton thousand bushels of onough potatoes to supply tho North Platto markets last year. It is estimated that tho doflclency will bo still grcator this year because of tho poor yield in sqmc sections of tho country. As a result of those conditions tho price paid' in North Platte is a little bettor than In most places. A week ago ono of our local grocers paid $1.50 a bushel for a small lot of unsorted potatoes and three days lattor ho received a car load of graded, government Inspected potatoes which ho sold for $1.15 to $1.35 a bUBhol. i.t it it $1.00 Springer, STORES LET'S KNOW N0RTHPLATTE A SERIES OF INFORMING AIITIC- I.KS ABOUT NORTH PLATTE , AND ITS PEOPLE.
