Earlier this week I was out and about and decided to get myself a drink at one of the local eateries. I went through the drive-thru and was handed my beverage and a straw. I unwrapped my straw, stuck it in my drink, put it up to my lips, and just CRINGED.
Howdy market watchers. Rain prayers are working, but still needed. Better chances return this next week for Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas and Nebraska as wheat planting gets underway.

Since it came from the 1892 campaign, presumably Peter William Dickman owned it when he made the run in 1893. Was it a cherished possession that he kept safe? Did he use it to wipe his brow? Did he use it as a flag to mark his claim?
