FARMERS LOSE MONEY
► Special to The Telegraph
> Dillsburg, Pa., May 21.—Fattening
i cattle during this last winter proved
i to be very unprofitable to the farmers
of this section, on account of having
1 had to pay an extreme high price for
their cattle last Fall and the price of
' corn being very high. At this time
■ when many of the farmers must sell
their cattle the market price of fat
cattle is very low and in many in
stances they are compelled to take
less per hundred weight than paid for
1 them last Fall. The increase in weight
is not sufficient to cover the value of
corn fed and the loss between the cost
and selling price of the cattle.

Coal Is Cheapest and Best Now
To buy coal now Is to buy It at the cheapest price for which It can
be obtained during the year. Ami then you gain in quality, too, for the
coal sent from the mines at this time of the year may bo thoroughly

will cause the dirt to cling to the coal. So to buy Montgomery coal
now is to buy the best quality of the best coal at the lowest prices.
