The excellent pastures, the second crop of oats and probably a second cutting of hay brought on by the recent rains will remind some farmers of the grave mistake they made when they sold their cows for a ridiculous price.  Nice prairie hay can be bought here now for $18.00 per ton, and we heard a farmer make the remark the other day that as long as he can buy hay for that price he will not sell a single cow.


The town board met here at a special meeting to consider the laying out of a new road commencing from the Knorr residence and running east to the north and south road.  We understand there is considerable opposition on the part of some of the land owners, and it is probable that the road will not be built at all. The board gave Bert Hicks the contract to build four cement cross walks at the bank corner. This will be appreciated by everyone.
