Bumper Wheat Crops in Northwest Cause of Much Prosperity.

DETROIT, Mich., Dec. 23.—J. C. Coe, a Saskatchewan farmer, dropped into Detroit Sunday, and by the time he had finished his errand yesterday he had purchased thirty automobiles for his farmer friends of the Far Northwest.  He was not an agent.  He told his neighbors he was going East, and they gave him their orders, accompanied by bank drafts.

The deals were mostly cash and aggregated nearly $100,000.  Coe paid $4,500 for his own machine.  The cars were all high grade, several being the $4,000 to $5,000 class.

Bumper wheat crops in the Northwest were the cause of so much prosperity.
