There are 200,000- acres of corn planted in Kossutb county. The .61 of an inch of rain that fell-from shortly after midnight until mid- mornlng in a gentle drizzle should be worth at' least five additional bushels of corn to an acr'e, farmers said Monday morning as they enjoyed the dew on local street corners. That would mean an extra 1,000,000 bushels of corn In the county, and at that the present price of around $2 per bushel, this would mean, a net increase of about two million. And that isn't all! There are 60,000 acres of soy beans planted in the county, and the rain should be worth about one extra bushel an acre, or about $120,000 on the present market. Now our research department didn't have time to go into the matter of hay, or we might be able to work out something extra there., But any way you look at it, the rains came at the right time, and mean much In every way, 1947 County Budget of $1,227,000 Is Lone Rock Purchases Fire Fighting Units For $3,200 • Lone Rock: A committee from the Lone Rock community, after visiting a plant that "manufactures fire fighting equip; ment, at LuVerne, Minn- last week, purchased a $3200 unit for use in Lone Rock and surrounding area.
