states the character of farming has
almost been made over.
Texas has forged to the front until
Its agricultural chiefs claim more
wheat grown there than in some other
states where wheat is well nigh the
princ ial crop. They declare their
grape fruit and oranges, grown in the
I Rio Grande Valley, equal to the best.
In wheat, Kansas, wilich holds the
lead, has -increased Its acreage near
ly 100 per cent in 'the last ten years.
The increase is 4,196,000 acres. Ok
lahoma, which last year stood fourtfh
in wheat production, mcantine in

acres. Iowa, the banner corn state,
enlarged its wheat crop 58 per cent.
On the othet hailnd Miniesota which
stood second in spring wheat last
year cut its wheat productIon 26 iper

Ing to a compromise agreement be
tween the county highway conmis
sion and the Southern Railmay, at an
angle of about 65 degrees. Tio con
mission asked for a 45 degree angle
bridge and the railway insisted on
constructing it at .a 90 degree angle.
The agreement upon the compromise
angle wa; reached at a recent con
forence between County Engineer B.
R. Cowherd and railroad officials. -
The approaches to the 'bridge have
not yet been completed 1but work on
them will begin at once, it is stated.
The completion of the bridge and'ap
