do more than this and ao asks other

state work and to tha nation. Sums
from 25 cents up will be srladly ac

PLENTY OF LASTING SNOW
! WILL SAVE WHEAT CROP.
(By International News Service.)
Washington, March 8. rray for
deep snow and plenty of it until well
along into the spring. It is snow,
says the Department of Agriculture,
which will save or lose this year's
Winter wheat crop.
Until late in December the wheat
crop looked very bad the worst in
yean. Deep snow, which the late
James J. Hill always referred to as
the Northwest's bet protector and
fertilizer hns vastly improved the
aituation. If enough stays on and
the ground is not uncovered before
the heavy frost period is over, the
'crop will be a fair success. Planting
is 2,000,000 acres greater than ever
