Large Shipment of Wool
One of the largest shipments of wool ever sent out from this place was
started down the river Tuesday. It consisted of about ten thousand
pounds which had been purchased by Ira Hardman, of the Hardman Store and
Produce Company, from merchants and farmers in the country
surrounding this place.
The price paid for wool this summer is probably the highest ever paid
averaging about thirty cents per pound. When we call to mind the
dire predictions of certain Republican politicians about the wool industry
if ever the Democrats had charge of the government we are tempted to laugh
Even Harry Woodyard would have no hesitancy in looking a sheep in the face.
