Spokane. Wash., Oct. io. Reports
coming in show that about 3,000,000
bushels of wheat have been totally de
stroyed in this state, and that at least
3,000,000 bushels will have to be graded
down to about half price. The heavy
rain for tho last three days has in many
sections knocked down tho crop that ro
main3 uncut, and beforo it can be
harvested it will sprout and bo destroy
ed. In the northern part of tho Big
Bend country a heavy snow fell, destroy
ing all crops not harvested.
