NOW THRESHED ' __ _ Fergus county fanners, as well us farmers in other wheat sections of the j county, are showing a tendency to hold I their wheat in expectation of a gredter ' market price than has been ottered . so far this season. An approximate j estimate obtained from one or the ele- j vator companies here-gives only about 10 or 12 per cent oi the entire Fer- j gus county wheat crop as being ac- . tually sold so tar this year. About : 05 per cent of the wheat they have ! handled lias been stored, according I to the company's figures. On an average, perhaps 00 per cent j of this county's crop lias been thresh ed or stacked, up to date. All thresh-j •ing in the section cast of the Judith : •-mountains is more than 90 per cent i complete, the last of ibis work in the j Winnett country being finished up last week. In the Denton country and to the north, perhaps 70 per cent has j been completed, but in the Judith ba- i sin proper, and especially around But- j l'alo, fully 50 per cent is as yet un- ! touched, according to an estimate. given by County Agriculturist Peter-1 sou -. It is impossible to give any accurate estimate of local wheat conditions un til threshing or stacking is entirely completed, and due to weather condi tions, the movement of grain has been greatly retarded. It i: hard to say, at present, whether ' the local Dinners will realize tiie price j they hope to re-.-eive or not, but they j seem o 1 r-.-itv unanimous in their I reluct.,:.::o to sell. ^ j 0 .

DISTRICT COURT IN SESSION Lewistown Andrew A. Anderson, A. Dahl. Ale\ !'. Law, J. (!. Lewis, Alex Moran, II. Often, George Kohl-backer, W. C. Wilson. Joseph Schutt, who was arrested at ! the (lies rooming house last duly af •ivuting a disturbance and shoot ing at Police Officer John Crowley,. was last night found guilty of assault i 'penitentiary. Schutt will he sentenced j by Judge Ayers tomorrow. The jury j reached an agreement shortly before 9 o'clock. Schutt came to the city on July 27 last, from Stanford, lie secured a room at the (lie s rooming house on Main street and after doing a lot of drinking returned there in the eve-1 ning. Late at night he came out of his room flourishing a gun, but linul ly went hack to his apartment.' The police officers were called and while Officer Joint ('row-ley was trying to get into the room, Schutt fired (through the door, just missing the po-' lineman. Chief E. \V. Ray and Officer Riggers took part in the effort to get the man out and lie fired two more : shots. A bottle . formaldehyde was i poure d into the room through the j transonic space and Schutt then gave up. He was represented at tiie trial, by McConochie A Williams, w hile j County Attorney Frank Wright and i Assistant County Attorney Raymond j Dockery represented the state. The ! defense undertook to show that Schutt had been drinking heavily before he came to this city and that after ar riving he continued this until on the night in question, be was on tiie verge of deleriutn tremens and did not know what he was doing. An effort was made to strengthen this theory with medical testimony, Drs. A. c. Biddle land A. W. Deal testifying. Their tes ' timony, however, failed to add any j weight, as both were non-committal j in their replies to the hypothetical I question framed by the defense. One j witness for the defense.
