COUNTY NEWS+ SCARCITYf MONEY y ff What Will Bring About Better Times i v in Adair County 12 WISH YOUR TRUCK TO MARKET The scarcity of money in circulation has been the unversed cry throughout Adair county for the past three months and while the banks have come In for their share of censure for refusing to loan funds at this particular time the farmers the stock dealers lumber and stave hand lers have had much to do with the stringency in the local money market Every thing in the way of stock is low as is also lumber and staves and there is nothing at this time to indicate that prices are going to advance soon Money is somethingthe people can not well get along without 4hence natives will have to move out their truck at market prices Perhaps sacrifices will have to be made but would it not be better to sell at the market price than to continue to hold not knowing when better prices will make their appearance Corn is now selling at 300 per barrel There are many hogs in the county and to continue to feed them three dollar raintto us it seems would be a losing business Sell your swine and invest your money in something else The same can be said of the lumber and staves now stYackedin the county We once knew a mer chant who had an auction sale every month here in Columbia and he told the writer it paid him from the fact that he got rid of his hard stock turning the money into articles that would sell Of course he sold at auction for less than actual cost but he was reimbursed by investing in fresh good goods that were in demand Hence we believe that the stock lumber and staves in the county should be placed upon the market If this step was taken it would be but a few weeks un til money would be plentiful and a moving spirit would be seen throughout the county of

When the barn was razed last week the shingle was found and was forthwith forwarded to Fortune in Nebras ka Martha Middaugh sent a 0 letter with it in which she re ferred to their engagement in-
