"Well sir," said Mr. Livingston, "I Was just talking with one of my neighbors near my farm and he said that there was one quarter section of mine that would go at least twenty bushels of hard wheat to the acre. I will admit that the piece of grain looks flue but I .did not think It would do as well as that." "Say, Doc,' saicl the newspaper Eian, "I always knew that you were an' optimist and I want to say to you at this time that you are one of the most optimistic fellows in South Da kota today." "You talk as though you didn't be lieve me," said Mr. Livingston, with that same smile that landed him in the register of deeds office as often as the law would allow. "I will take my auto and take you over to my iarm near Appleby this very after noon and show you if you are from Missouri."

Not far from Appleby Mr. Livings ton pulled up to his fine farm. As we were going up the road to the house our attention was called to as fine a stand of wheat as we have seen in this county any year, wet or dry. "That's the piece," said Mr. Livings ton, pointing towards it. "Get out of the machine and walk into that field and see what you think of it." We did and found the grain all headed cut with big long heads and the color was fine. "Now," said Mr. Livingston, "X have 1G0 acres in this field just like this and some pretty good grain -on my othef quarters, but, of course, this is the best" NOTICE OF PRIVATE SALE.
