FALL WHEAT IS PROFITABLE.
Farmers of Fremont County Will Sow
Big Acreage This Year.yl^
Sidney, Oct. 20.—A. large acr'eSg^ of
fall wheat has been sown. The weath
er has been especially favorable for
the wheat and It" Is looking fine. More'
small grain is being sown In this sec
tion every year on the highlands. One
reason is to renew the ground which
has been weakened by continually
growing corn on it and another is that
the crop of small grain on high land
is generally profitable. According to
present prospects the acreage next
year will be a big one.
