Relief for Ozark County

Relief for Ozark County.
West Plains, Mo., March , 29.—The drouth-stricken farmers of Ozark county are to be relieved, as two cars of corn and potato seed arrived here yesterday. John C. Harlin, county clerk of Ozark county, is here with teams to haul the seed to Gainesville, whence it will-be distributed. There is much destitution in that county. No such condition exists in Howell county. The big fruit crop last year brought thousands of dollars to the county and Howell is out of debt and has money in the treasury. No assistance needed here, although much suffering exists in Ozark and Taney counties.
