In the Hutchinson Independent of
Saturday, August 26th, appears the
following concerning Great Bend,
Barton county, and the elevator and
milling industries. 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:
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.
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
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.-

The latest out for the betterment
of the human race, is a suggestion of
an Atchison man, who suggests that
'..the United States swap the
Philippine Islands for Ireland, so
that we can raise our own police
men. 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..
