CLOSED WEDNESDAY AFTER NOON. 0 DEAD EAGLES Monday a wool buyer took us to Twin River to look at our own clip via Milk River. During the three weeks from the time we started shearing until we finished the rains had washed practically all the sand and. grease out of the fleeces. The wool was much cleaner than they had described it to be. A year ago the advance was 30$ a lb. This year 25p. Not so good. A lot of spear grass, bad on lambs. On the road west of Milk River were live bald eagles and dead ones. The latter had been shot and tied to posts with their wings outstretched along the barb wire fence. We have yet to hear a reasonable explanation for shooting these powerful birds of flight. The Emblem of the United States "DO YOU CARE "?
