Jacob Miller - Clay County Pioneer
Morgannllo Morsels. To continue from where I last left oft, I will say that Mr. A. N. Crawford is one of our old and respected citizens having ably filled the offices of township trustee and county surveyor for several years, lie ha.- ha.- 320 of land, 75 acre in corn, 22 in wheat, and has opened up 21 acres of new land this spring. Next conies J. M. Dogger, who has good house and growing orchard; 120 acres of corn, and 30 of wheat. Then there is Jacob Miller with his large farm, line Improvements, and gonl crops. But I will leave the rest of our farmers for your Sam. Tell him to canvass old Sherman. Throughout he will bo well treated by both Swedes and Americans. Corn is looking well, and I never saw tin fields so clean at this season of the year. In regard to lUted com, some of it is looking well. I believe that for bottom or moderately level up land the check rower beats them all. The Merten boys have 100 acres of corn planted with check rower that Is a little the best for straight rows that I ever saw.
