The article is il lustrated with half tone pictures of the Walnut Creek rr ills and elevator, . and the Moses Bros Mills and e'eva jtor; also a scene on Main street, look ! ing south from the Brinkman bank. The article is as follows: IN THE WHEAT BELT. Great Bend is a town of 3.500 people, situated northwest of Hutch inson, on the Missouri Pacific and Santa Fe railroads in the heait of the richest wheat producing country in the United States'. Great Bend is unusually attractive iu appearance, as evidenced by her handsome stores, broad streets, and modern municipal improvements, and with hotel, tele phone, electric lighting and water ser-. vice which are indicative at once of the status of her business and derasa bility as a place of residence. That she is the county seat of Bnatto county, which has this year produced the largest wheat crop of any county in the United States, gives some idea of the substantial foundation upon which her industries are based. WHEAT PRODUCTION. 0The report of the United States de partment of agriculture for this year showed that Kansas leads the wotld in the production of wheat, and Bar ton county; wtn a crop ot over 4,000.000 bushels, is the heaviest ' in the state. The revenue from the wheat alone if equally divided,' would leave over (210 for each man, woman and child in the county. The land vields from 12 to 40 busnels of wheat to the acre, and production of 35 bushels to the acre is not at all unusual.- An average horn 15 to 18 bushels is easily main taiued. TURN WHEAT INTO DOLLARS. The Walnut Creek. Mills was the first mill built in that section of Kan sas and its history has been one of steady expansion, having at the pres enttime an output of 1,000 barrels per day, or nearly twice the production of any other Barton county - mill. The immense volume of business of the Moses Bros. Mill and Elevator company creditably reflects the wealth oi liar ion county m her wneat pro- ductioo. This firm engages in the milling and elevator business,, operat ing one of the most widely known mills in the west and doing one of the largest grain businesses in Kansas. The company operates forty four stations west of 'Great Bend on the Santa Fe and Missouri Pacific roads, going as far west as Garden City.- Miss Ea Clayton -has been en gaged as one of the teachws in the city schools.

It used to be said that when you passed McPherson you were west of the rain belt, but of late when you pass that town you're east of the moisture belt, and this year you are also east" of the crop belt. The corn is better in Barton, Stafford, Edwards and a number of other western counties than in any of the eastern section of the state. Barton's big wheat crop took up so much room that the farmers are now wondering what they can do with their corn. Of coure we aren't much posted on farming but while driving over the country the other day, we noticed the sawlog like ears, and figured it out that it wouldn't be a bad idea to build a crib out of those big ears in which to store the wheat. In that way both crops would be stored on the same space, which would make it possible for most of our farmers to find room on their own place to store the crop..
