Sedan Valley Notes
Some farmers in our part of the
county seem dissatisfied with returns
from their lust year's crop. Perhaps
they should, lut we are not of that
opinion. The more people jzet, the
more they want. Do you suppose
they could fuiil another farming
country where three to four acres-of
ground will glow a ton ol liroomrorn.
and where mair.e or feterita makesa'
ton per acre on inch a malí amount
of cultivation? And isn't it strange
why tome of them stand around and
"holler," a the hoys sav, about this
country and how sorry they are that
they ever came here, when perhaps
they starved out of the Missouri
Ozarkt or some dry section of Texis
where one croj in seven hits and
makes f 8 00 per acre on $75.00
land? Culd some one suggest a
remedy for this kind of people?
