With the prices of farm products so low, the short srbps were a real hardship on most farmers and also on business men. Bank failures top have helped complicate, the situation. This IB the first time in the 22 years we have lived here that we have hat to buy a large quantity.- of feed• foi the stock. Up to July 1 we had the beet prospects for a bumper crop that I have ever seen here, but lack of moisture after that with exces slve heat in both July and August reduced grain yields to only a fe\\ bushels an acre."
