Alfalfa the King Alfalfa hay holds the lead as the big crop aud big money produc er of this section of the country. The shortage of the crop over many of the adjoining states makes the price larger for the early season than ever before and many of our farmers are taking advantage of this to sell their entire crop and take their cash profit# without wait ing for the doubtful raise of mar kets or attempting to get more by feeding It to cattle or sheep and chancing the market. The Lamar Alfalfa Milling Co. on Tuesday of this week purchased over 4000 tons and ou Wednesday over 3000 tons more. The price paid was $8 and up per tom in the stack, according to cutting and the quality. The purchases for these two days foot up over f 60,000. This is Just one company aud two days transactions, but it gives some idea of the magnitude of the iudustry. It is a cash deal and will material, ly improve the financial condition of this section when it gets into circulation. Tens of thousands of tons of this gTeat staple are still in the stack, whole sections of the country being dotted with stacks so thick us to obscure almost all other views NEW MACHINE Lyric Theatre Installs a New Sim plex Motion lecture Machine Manager Finch of the Lyric this week installed a new' Simplex mo tion picture machine of the very latest pattern.
