Will be compelled to dispose'ofmfrch
oY their stock. Wheat is very short,
otwI Timnthv f not more than half
crop, and Oata but little better, while
corn showed a very irregular growth,
and much of a failure. The crops
outside of Nebraska and Iowa; I
think, would appear at any time, to a
frontiersman, as only half crops.
So far as we were able lo see and
learn in reference to the growth of
hedges in Illinois, they have proven
failures.. In the first place-they are
greatly neglected, and. permitted to
to grow until, they become considera
ble trees, and after,, withgut -being
trinicd. and even those which are at-
tended to, arq not without their, fail
ures, in, many places. Judging from
the appearance of the hedges general
ly, an observer could ndfc otherwise
than come to the conclusion that the
farmers had lost all confidenceand all
hope of succeeding in thoroughly
raising good a substantial hedges.j
Probably we were expectingtoomuch
of what wo had heard of the growth
of hedges iii Illinois. We have hedges
in Nebraska which far excel those
seen along this line of road.

exhausted from incessant cropping;
but oh' good land, where the seed was
sown by the 20th of September, the
orops look about as well as in average'

will be made up in the numberfof ''
