$10,000 for malicious prosecution, the
jury brought in a verdict for the plain

and suits for damage were instituted

Many of those whom we advised to order irrigation equipment last summer if they wanted it
in time for spring planting now are offering us all kinds of inducements to make installations
and are sorely disappointed because we cannot do so.
