AU applicants must obtain a certificate from the county corn-hog committee showing that they have signed the corn-hog- contract. Same must be attached to the original warehouse certificate.

The total loan value of corn stored and aealed on farms is estimated a* $113,000,000.

Like mosl everyone in th<> country, Webb wajs getting ready for his spring work. He- planned on sending some hogs to market, Saturday Inst.

Michael Long is farming his father's place of 120 acres, just west of Burt. and living with his folks. There are 10 milk cows on the place, all flne looking. Michael was wondering how long It would be before the fish would start coming up the river. We might add that it won't be long now, but unless he has some better baic than we have, he won't have much luck. (By Edward Allen) We dropped in to chat with our gaud friend, Sherman Phillips again on Saturday morning ,ut LuVerne, and found him biuy putting more egg cases together, as thos* 1 on hand are already full.
