Day at the Farmers
What waa perhap a record for
buying, wheat in Butler was estab
lished by the: Farmbera 'Elevator Sat
urday when 177 -wagon loads, or 8.784-
bushels, were delivered at ihe elevat
or, dumped and elevated to the wheat
bins. r ,
The average price paid was $1.08 1-1
ier bushel or a total of $17461. for
the day's receipts. The highest price
paid was 92.06 per bushel and the
lowest $i.7S. With all of this wheat
it was necessary to utilize bins never
before used for wheat and the - ele
vator is now filled to capacity and it
is probable that it will be at least a
week before more rMl be purchased
as it is almost impossible to get cars
to move the surplus. During the past
few weeks only about one car per
week is all that they could get.
Previous to Saturday the Elevator
company had bought 75,000 bushels
of wheat this season for which they
have paid an average price of $3.00
per bushel. -
