GOOD CROPS AT GLENTANA
There are some wonder crops in the
Northland this year, despite the hail
in some sections and the red rust in
others, says the Glentana Reporter,
East of here Bill Jarvis is threshing
his crop on his big ranch and it is
running far beyond his expectations. I
Reports yesterday were to the effect (
that his wheat is running better than j
thirty-five bushels to the acre, and thej
quality is splendid. He has 500 acres
of wheat, all macaroni. He expects
about fifteen thousand bushels
wheat this year, and his six hundred
acres of oats will make about twelve
bushels to the acre.
Jim McKinnon's wheat, as far as
he has gone is making a little better
than eighteen and a half bushels to
the acre. The quality is fine. He
has eighty acres of wheat yet to
thresh and a hundred acres of splen
Engineer Meets Horrible
Death in Engine Gears
John Kelly, engineer on the An
thony Bloom threshing rig, near Wil
liston, was killed Saturday afternoon
two miles south of McGregor, in one
of the most frightful accidents record
ed in many years.
Kelly was on top of the engine as
the crew was preparing to move and
his right foot slipped and was caught
between the cogs and main body of
the engine and the right leg was
drawn into the wheel nearly to the
The leg was crushed and mangled
and the muscles and ligaments torn
loose on the right side of thé body
clear to the shoulder. The abdomen
was torn open and the largest body
muscles were ripped asunder.
After the machine was stopped
Kelly was held in the machinery for
more than half an hour while the
did flax. His oats went thirty-eight
bushels to the acre.
Bill Neihoff has threshed part of
his large crop and the yield is very
gratifying, considering the setbacks.
It is running at twenty-two bushels
to the acre. His oats is also making
a satisfactory yield.
Owen W. Phelps got nineteen bush
els of wheat to the acre and fifty bush
els of- oats. The quality is good.
JEANNETTE RANKIN TEAS

a nearby well and get a drink, but
