Havrest Notes From
Harvest, generally, will be
over this week. It is estimated
that the wheat is damaged on an
average of about ten percent by
the wet weather.
Will 1 Iarr\ served a good pur-
pose in his neighborhood with his
header during harvest by cutting
wheat in several fields where it
was impossible for a binder to
get in on aceount of the mud.
O. I). Goodnight started liis
threshing .Monday on the home
I irady Henry started three of
Ins threshers the first of the
week, despite the fact that some
of the wheat was still damp.
Several threshing machines are
also in operation east of the Nl*el
While Mr. Lee Burner was at
work threshing grain on the old
McKissiek farm near Vnioii Cha-
pel, a shock caught fire from a
match carelessly thrown down by
one of the workers. Only by the
most strenuous efforts on the
part of the crew was the field of
wheat finally saved. About eight
shocks were destroyed.
Andy Tnggart, who is farming
the John Taggart farm near the
Chapel, is one of the heaviest
losers by the rain and wind
storm that visited that section.
His wheat is badly tangled and
much of it down and the heads
did not fill properly. The straw
is reported so rotten that much
of it cannot be harvested. On J
the Ken Cook farm near Hennes- j
sey, the grain was also damaged,
but Air. Cook's field averaged a
general yield of 14 bushels per
acre. A 15-acre field yielded a
little above 22 bushels to the acre
and the wheat is of a good qual-
Nic Moran, by using George
Marion s header, finished cutting
Sunday was not observed as a
day of rest by many wheat
growers, it being absolutely nec-
essary to cut when they could
while the weather permitted and
before il shelled off in the fields.
Baldwin & Evans finished cut
ting tin ir 40U acres of wheat on
Tuesday. They were 28 days
I rying to get the grain cut. They
have been busy all week thresh-
