ITEMS OF INTEREST 10 LOCAL FARMERS Mason valley farmers have been busy digging the potato crop during the past month and will finish digging by the middle of November.

However, although the crop is light, the price is good, buyers offer- j ing as high as S45 per ton for num- i ber one potatoes. Last year 239 cars of potatoes were shipjtfcd from points on the Copper Belt R. R. So far this season forty or fifty cars have been shipped and al though the crop is light an increase in shipment over last year is anticipated. The hay production this year has been better than last throughout Lyon county. The Fernley district cut three good crops, the average yield for Fern ley having been 'estimated at close to 5 tons per acre. Many farmers in Ma son and Smith valeys pastured their! third crop. Warm weather in Septem-i ber and October produced good past-) ure on alfalfa lands through out the) county. " Sveral hundred tons nt aitana nay : has been sold at prices ranging 'from j $8.50 to $10.00 per ton baled f. o. b. ■ Fernley. Cost of baling Inis dropped’ from $3.00 to $2.5(1 per ton.
