V Word from the Stuttgart, Atk., branch of the company is that husi ness is booming and a nice line of con tracts for i igatioln wells have lben Y i het closed. hetoel I It is nowth the ettim o r whe; ol the two saddest and the three sweet- t est words in the English language We are being used overtime.

As the rice industry in fot this seceion depcndls largely upon ir- ph trigation wells, it makes us feel goodl (s r to tink .as: rto think that we are in the well busi- er1 fness and have made prosperity possi- the ble to many. And the success of the mi Vrice farmers in this territory is the pa al: success of every business firm in this -community. T SThis does not sound much like well BC y notes, but the bookkeepr just has to to' f rave a little every so often, and if fo he thinks he sees any connection he- do s 'tween the well business and prosperity ta 0 why just let him have his little say.
