Mr. Wheat Grower, Attention I
DON'T WASTE that scattered, shattered wheat left by I
the machine at each stack-yard after threshing this year, j
It is just as good wheat as any you will sell, but letf there

From reliable information coming
to vus,' we 'urge the public to get
their winter's supply of coal now, as
the production of coal in the United
States so far this year is several mil
lion tons below normal. With the
cars necessary to move the crops and
other commodities this late summer
and fall, the railroads cannot furnish
sufficient cars to the coal mines to
keep them running full time, and as
the stocks of coal are low in every
community, the demand for coal this
fall and winter will be far in excess
of the production at the mines.
Coal is something we are all liable
to put off buying as long as possi
ble, but we know how necessary it
is for our health and comfort ,

CROPS' LOOK GOOD ..
IN BACA COUNTY
E. D. Cooper returned the first
of the week from a business trip in
the farming sections of eastern
Colorado and western Kansas. Mr.
Cooper has for several years been
in charge of the John W. Baughman
landaand states that this spring
there is more land going into culti
vation in the western country than
han been put into' cultivation for
more than five years and that he
has contracted for several thousand
acres of breaking on the Baughman
lands on the crop plan, the farmers
seeming anxious to handle the lands
on this basis. While heretofore it was
practically ... impossible to get the
breaking done on a cash basis.
Mr. Cooper also states that he
finds the farmers over the country
in -good humor over the crop pros
pects nd price out look and that
contrary to the farmers strike, sug
gested last spring by some, they are
putting forth a stronger and better
directed , effort than for several
years past and even when the gov
ernment bad guaranteed the price of
wheat at $2 per bushel there was
not the effort being made to put out
the wheat acreage that will be sown
Another thine Mr Cooner mm.
tioned is quite in evidence, is that
tie wheat crop in the vicinity of Lib
eral excells any wheat which he saw
growing over, the so called great
wheat producing secton in the state
of Kansas and that it is evident
none of the yields will equal the
yields from the Liberal terrtory this
