Monday brought the news that the
body of Francis Steele bad been
found near the month of Barney

from the spot where he camped and
ate his last meal. The finding of
the body of the unfortunate man
confirme the statements published
regarding his visit to the Barney

departed toward Big creek. The

ence Mercantile agency. Telegraph
acceptance and will send shipping
J. W. Foster & Co. -
The above telegram wae received
this week by Jacob Schwalbach of
the Orangeville Roller Mille, for the
immense shipment of 36 carloads of
his floor. There will be from 200 to
making a total of about 8000 bbls,
or 1,568,000 pounds. The grade
will be exactly the Barne as that
used in this city and will be sacked
in the usual 100 pound sacks.
Mr. Schwalbach says it will require
a mu of 3 months day and night
to supply his local deliveries and
this great order. He Btarted on
the order at once and the first ship
ment will be made this week.
The importance of suet? a con
tract to this city cannot be under
estimated as it means the bringing
here in the neighborhood of 130,
000. The firm ordering the flour
is a large exporter and much of it
will no doubt be sent abroad.
With a railroad hare the output of
flour could be greatly increased and
the qnality of the product is such
as to insure a ready sale. Both
Mr. Schwalbach and Mr. Knorr
have good mille here and before
long Orangeville promisee to be
an important milling center.

CAMAS PRAIRIE FARMERS REED MEN
Timothy is Producing Good
A great many reports are current
regarding the present condition ol
the crops of Camas Prairie which
might lead people to believe the
damage done by hot weather was
enormous or none at all. The hot
weather has not damaged the fall
grain and but very slight damage
has been done the late spring
crops. To an interested person
out side of this country they would
be led to believe there never had
been a big yield of grain in this
country until this year, when in
troth there has always been an
enormous yield, but the truth ol
the situation » that new methods
are being employed by the farmers
and the cultivation of the lands is
being made on more extensive, and
more successful methods,
barley is now being bound on all
parta of the prairie and will soon
be ready for the threshers, while
the haying season is at. its height.
The timothy, crop was- reported
short this year but is found to give
a good average yield. The farmers
are experiencing no little trouble
in getting harvest hands. There is
work for many at this early day
and men will be in greater demand
as the harvest proceeds.
