"It was this spirit of the pilgrims' love of truth, respect for it, desire for right living, which l.iid the mass ive foundation for the United States. Tne Puitans made the begiuuing. We should as they^inteuded."

WHEAT CROP SHORT IN THE BIG BEND Waterville, Aug., B.—That the wheat crop io the Big Bend country this season will not Average more than half as much an the bumper crop of last year is the opinion expressed by O J Johnsrud, a harvesting mach ine repreutitive Jof Spokane, who is no v traveling through this section. Mr. Johnsrud says flint io the vicinity of Wilson Creek, Adiian and Epnrata there are many fields that will not make more than ton bishels ti the aore. Of course there are some rauch es that will yield very much better than that some even going as high as thirty-five. His observations have led him to believe that the good crops are due in a large measure to fall seeding in that part of Doaglas county. Between Ephrata and Waterville the condi tions are considerably better and the difference in the ciops where fall and spring seediug frfquently occurred side by side was scarcely noticeable, though most farmers had seeded last fall. Many farmers who had bought ex pensive outfits for gathering this sea sons' crop will have to ask an exten sion of their contracts by the implem ent houses. Most of the machinery was purchased abont two months ago on thirty days time. At that time the crops seemed to be in fine condition and tbe loss has been occasioned siuoe then hy the extremley hot weather whioh has prevailed uninterruptedly for the past four weeks. MRS.
