correspondents. their average data
being July a3. These returns indicate
a condition of 84.4 against 83.a last
month. Since tht y were mailed
copious showers have fallen through
out the cotton belt. which woul,d Un
doubtedly raise the condition to still
higher ngures. but the reports are
published just as received.
A year ago the same correspon
dents reported a condition of,76.7. so
t hat the present crop app)ears to he
7points better than then. The con
dition is also probably higher than mn
any July since 1898.
