Mrs. Shimer has just had the grove she first bought from Mr. Hull all grubbed out. The grove cost her $5000 in cash 15 yrs ago & had cost much more before the freeze. It had tripled or more in value & was Mrs. Shimer's pride. Last week it was all grubbed out. It cost her over 100 to get those roots out! The land is of the value of land just cleared & this means very little now. The "60" is to be largely grubbed out. Mrs. S. has come to this decision after careful thought & investigation. She has not shown any despondency, but is full of plans for the future.
Mr. Cannon says that helpless as she is, she is worth "four ordinary businessmen." I do not know anyone more plucky over
