Field Near Stephen.The J. J. Hill
Plot at Warren Yields 41 Bushels
Per Acre.
The weather is very favorable this
week for threshing and machines are
very busy all over the county shell
ing out the golden gram. There is
a good deal of straw for the cylin
ders to chaw on this year and there
fore the threshing season will be
longer than usual. Reports from the
machines indicate that this is a bum
ner crop, not only of wheat but also
|/of oats and barley.
Some very remarkable yields are
being reported. A field on the A.
Green farm near Stephen, as report
ed, yielded''48 bushels per acre. The
J. Hill experimental^ plot of 4 3-4
acres on the Ed. Rosendahl farm at
Warren yielded 41 bushels wheat per
acre The Martin Rud farm of 700
to 800 acres near Stephen reports an
average of 38 bushels. At Warren
J. S. Hilleboe reports 27 and Ed.
Rosendahl 31 bushels on their farms.
All these yields are remarkably good.
Indications are that the average for
the county will not be below 25
bushels The quality also, is good
Some wheat tests as high as 65 and
66 pounds to the bushel.
A deal was closed recently by which

your mother that you have sustained
your reputation and are worthy of
her teaching," was worth the price of
admission. "I like his readingit

well as the author himself." Prof.
Gates once said of him "He is a young
"snan who does things."
Such men as G. M. Warren, Dr.
Dewey, Dr. Freeman, Prof. Hobbs and
many others, of Minneapolis, will
testify as to his worth and ability.
C. M. Johnson, of Rockford, Minn.,

In this automobile age, with the
great abundance of swift moving,
velvet riding, pleasure and commer
cial conveyances, could you ey.er
imagine the real sport and recreation
in a "hayrack party" ride?

so forsaken as a pleasure outing
vehicle. In this seemingly mad rush
of modern progress, have we forgot

way to have a frolic'

know that the evening's events will

The old "grads" and their "play
mates" met at an appointed hour on
Friday evening, but the fun didn't
really start until we had taken our
places on the hayrack and the drivers
said "Gid-dap." There were two
racks heavily laden and eats galore.
To the amusement of all, we rambled
along and shortly drew up at the old
second Pembina crossing. After
crossing the Snake river, a halt was
made and soon the boys kindled two
large cracking fires, which beauti
fully lit up the woods and cast our
long shadows grotesque-like back in
to the heavy brush growth.
With the blazes dancing lively, we
soon had our camp grates arranged
and coffee bubling, while at the other
fire, mellow sweet corn boiled and
A treat and surprise it was indeed,
to all, the well prepared festival to
which we had been brought. And
right here we want to thank beyond
measure, Mrs. J. H. Bolton, Nell Seign
and Elmira Rudloff for their work,
kindness and initiative in arranging
the affair and making it the success
it was.
After the "eats" came games of
our "childhood days", not long past,
and it was with enthusiasm, nimble
ness, that all entered in. School day
songs were sung and even the page
number of different songs in our old
music reader were remembered.
Here and there stood a trio, quartette
or quintette roasting marshmallows,
while an attempt at "massacre" was
made to bring about harmony in
some lately composed melody.

awaiting us were the two hayracks

The Sheaf has been at work dur-
ing the past two months in getting
out a special illustrated edition, cov-
ering all the towns and villages of
Marshall county, and calling special
attention to its great agricultural re-
sources. This publication will be
the best advertising for the county

very effective way to boost the

The East side won the city cham
pionship last Thursday evening by
defeating the" West aide collection
pill tossers. The game was poorly
played by both nines and the West
side took more than their share of the
points in the error column. In the
first three innings the West side
had the better of the argument and
The largest entry list ever received
by any Slate Fair cattle show in
America has been obtained by the
Minnesota State Fair, Sept 6 to 11,
insuring one of the greatest exhibits
ever held anywhere. A stupendous
effort is being exerted to care for the
large number of animals expected.
Previous entry records have been
broken for Short Horn, Hereford, Red
Polled, and Ayrshire cattle. The Jer
sey show is far larger than the one
of a year ago Other breeds barely
fall below previous marks. In all it
will be the largest combined showing
of beef and dairy cattle ever held any
where. Over 1,100 animals have been
Big Livestock Market.
No doubt the remarkable success
of the cattle show this year is due
to the interest which breeders are
taking in the great public livestock
market, which it is the desire of the
fair to promote. Breeders have been
urged to attend the Minnesota State
Fair, because the opportunity af
forded of selling surplus stock to
farmers in the Northwest. Farmers
have been urged to attend the fair to
buy this pure-bred stock to be used
in grading up home herds.
The Horse Show is to be remark
ably successful this year, for the
same reasons Nearly twice as many
local breeders have entered horses at

dition there have been large entries
from all parts of the country, and
the leading draft breeds will make
an excellent showing.
Swine and Sheep.
The Swine and Sheep Shows will
both break nearly all previous rec
ords. The pig-club contest, in which?
fully fifty pigs will be shown, and the
Poland-China Futurity, in which twen
ty-three herds will be exhibited, are
principal reasons for the greater
number of hogs. All space in the
sheep barns has been disposed of.
Large Exhibit to Be Shown at Minne
sota State Fair, Sept. 6 to 11.
Of what importance is the parcel
post to the farmer and the city per
son? Though it may be important
how can anyone take advantage of it?
Such are some of the perplexing
questions which will be solved by a
large parcel post exhibit at the Min
nesota State Fair, Sept. 6 to 11, which
has Just been arranged by the Twin
City postofflce departments. It is to
be placed in the Agricultural building
in a very prominent place.
Principal emphasis will be placed
upon the producer's problems All
kinds of retainers for fruit, eggs,
dressed poultry, butter and other
farm products will be shown. A spe
cialist in charge will answer any
questions asked, and explain to any
one how the parcel post may be taken
advantage of
Mr. and Mrs. John Dagoberg
Entertained Many Friends.
Mr. and Mrs. John Dagoberg, of
this city, entertained a large number
of friends from Warren, Alvarado
and elsewhere at their beautiful
country home on the Lower Snake,
a few miles north from Alvarado, on
Sunday afternoon last. The day was
an ideal one and the seventeen mile
ride out to the farm in automobile
between newly cut fields, thickly
strewn with shocks of golden grain,
presented a scene of plenty and
prosperity that was truly marvellous
and that can be dublicated nowhere
else in the wide world, except in this
favored Minnesota Red River Valley.
Arriving at the farm light refresh
ments were served, after which the
visitors joined in social conversation,
playing games of croquet on the
spacious lawn, singing and other
amusements. At five o'clock a splen
did supper was served, after which
the guests departed in their cars for
their respective homes, grateful to
Mr. and Mrs Dagoberg for the fine
entertainment and the good* time
they had enjoyed.

Judge Grindeland Returns.
Judge Grindeland returned home
today from his trip to California,
where he visited the two big exposi
tions. He visited a number of the
leading cities on the coast, including
Seattle, where he addressed a large
gathering of former Minnesota and
Marshall county people. On his way
home he made a tour of the Yellow
stone National Park and saw its
many wonders. The judge has not
had a real vacation for years and his
friends hope that the few weeks re
spite from official cares, may have
given him new strength to tackle his
arduous judicial duties.
