The Washington weather bulletin says:
The condition of corn In -Maryland. ir
glnla, Indiana, Iowa, Oklahoma and poi
tions of Kansas, Nebraska, and Missouri,
owing to drouth. Is not as good as it was
11 week ago. but In Pennsylvania, West
Virginia, Ohio and Michigan It has Im
proved. Th corn crop continues in e.-ce-Ilen't
condition In Wisconsin and general
ly throughout the Southern states. In
Northern Mississippi and portions of Ten
iK.jwe,. and Kentucky, however, late corn
is being unfavorably affected by drouth.
In the Dakotas and Minnesota corn con
tinues backward', and In the Dakotas Us
general condition is not good. Cotton has
experienced furthir Improvement during
the week gent rally throughout the Cen
tral and Ea.-tern portion. A little picking
has been done Ih' 'klahom-.i.
Prime In his crop bulletin yesterday says:
"Temperatuie lem.rlns high. The move
ment of old corn still keeps up, particular
ly from Central Illinois, looks as if pres
ent nwvi ment would clean up old stocks
vi rv thoroughly. Fa rim is believing that
the M'tuntiorr in the near future tends to
lwr rather than higher prices. Oats
drunir out in goon condition to inresn. nut
