DECREASED WHEAT I HOP
A railing Off of Orsr 20o.oofj.ooo Bull?
?is Indiiatad
The Agricultural Depaitmeut has is?
sued a oiroular giving the substance of
reports reoeired by it up to June 10 on
the oonditlon of foreign crops It says
that a Britiah commercial estimate
tentatively put? the world's wheat crop
Of-t$99 at 2,504.000,001/bushels, against
2,748,000,000 bnahela In lb.es, * redtu
tion of 244,000,000 buahele, or nearly
8 9 per oent. Another estimate makes
a rednotlon of MS,OOOj00O bushel?. Such
information as can be gathered for
different conutriea is then given la de
Ulla
Reports from the country around
Odessa and Nikolaiert. Russia, repre?
sent the winter grain crops, both wheat
and rye. sa almost destroyed by drought,
by which the apring grains also bad
been severely injured, and would soon
be beyond help unless relieved by ram
Taking into aocoant the injuries here?
tofore reported as having been caused
by Inseota in three or four other province
witnin the winter wheat region, it is
evident, the department says, that the
orop of bread grain for the empire as a
whole cannot be a good one, notwith?
standing that for the few other locali?
ties whioh hare been heard from the
reports are generally favorable. It has
eren been suggested that the crop may
not ezoeed that of 1897.
Information from Germany is scant
but there has been complaint of deficient
sunshine and warmth, and the harvest
was thought likely to be a week or two
later that usual. Later advices indi?
cate better weather in various parts of
Germany.
According to the official reports on
the A us train crops for the middle of
May, wheat and barley promiaed about
an average yield, bnt rye and oata were
below that standard.
In a report of the Hungarian minia*
try of agriculture, issued on May 20,
the area under wheat was estimated at
about 7,800,000 acres, against 7,100,000
acres last year, and osrthia basis, taken
in connection with condition of plant,
some commercial eatimates pot the crop
as high as 140.000,000 bushels, against
194,000,000 in 1898, though other esti?
mates are less favorable. Unofficial
reports of ten days later show that the
whether bad been such as to cause a
lowering of the oondition of cereals
ainoe the official report was isaned.
Serere drought has prevailed in Ron
mania, and the wheat and rye orops are
aot expected to give more than half of
an average yield. Some estimate the
wheat orop at no more than 30 per cent
of an average. Other cereals alao have
suffered. The reports from Bulgaria
are better, though by no meana good.
Those from Turkey, both European and
Asisti?, are favorable.
Aocounta from Italy are favorable,
and those from Spain ahow a marked
improvement in the respect of the cereal
orops throughout the greater part of the
peninsular, thongh it aeema improb?
able that either wheat or other cereals
wil yield as well aa in 1898.
Next to the Russian wheat orop, that
of France is the largest and most impor?
tant in Europe, and the ontlook for a
good yield ia decidedly better than in
the former country. Aocording to the
official crop report for May lo, the area
under wheat ia about the same aa last
year, or very little less, while the con?
dition is about 6 per cent lower. On
this basis a crop would be, in round
number?, about 20,000,Goo bushel? less
than that of last year.
In other continental conutriea, and
also In great Britain, there has been
considerable complaint of cold, un?
seasonable weather, but, except in Den?
mark and Sweden, there ia no mention
of any ^serions injury to important
cereal crops.
No offloial report has yet been made
as to the Indian wheat crop recently
harvested, bnt It ia known to be con?
siderably smaller than that of 1898. Re?
ports as to the agricultural outlook in
Australasia are very favorable.

the Paris Exposition, from San Fran?

lowed from the trunk of one of the
immense redwood treea of Humboldt

"I will build," he says, "a schooner
from one of the largest trees in Hum?

piece. I will take a tree from 20 to 24

will be 48 feet long, 15 feet for beam
and 10 feet deep and will be rigged aa
a schooner. I will make my boat

me from two to three months to make
It."

Bad management keeps more people
In poor olroumstanoes than any other
one cause. To be successful one mnat
look ahead and plan ahead so that when
a favorable opportunity presents itself
he is ready to take adrantage of it. A
little forethought will also save muoh
expense and valuable time. A prudent
and careful man will keep a bottle of
Chamberlain'a Oolio, Obolera and

A statement prepared in the offloe of
the adjutant general in regard to the
casualties in the army,including troops
in the Philippines, from the beginning
of the insurrection, February I, up to
June ti, last, shows :
Killed in action 2?!(i ; died of wounds
received in action, fill ; died of disease
contracted in line of duty, Me, making
a total death list of ?'?5!?. The total
number of wounded during the same
period is stated at I,MS. These sta?
tistics were prepared prior to the severe
engagements participated in by Gen.
Lawton's force at Zapote river and
Oavite province, where the casualties
were severe on both sides. No official
statement has been prepared of the
number of sick and incapacitated men
in Gen. Otis' army, but it is known to
be large, some antborities placing the
number as high as 2,000 or 1,000

AN IMMENSE STOCK.
Tbe great advance in all cotton goods has caused us to buy early
the largest stock ol goods we have ever bad. This was necessary
to enable us to sell them to you at old prices. Thia has been the
sharpest advance I have seen in 20 years, except in two instance?.
How much higher, or how long the advance will hold, no one can
tell. So to be on the safe side I would advise you to buy early what
von need.
We can still sell you a very good Brown Cotton at 3c., a better one
at 4c, and tbe best at Tic. My stock has been well bought, and
goods well bought are half sold.was well said. We honestly believe
we own today one of tbe cheapest, if not the cheapest stock of goods
in any retail store in Virginia. No matter what you want in
DRY GOODS OR NOTIONS
try Baker before you buy, and if we fail to sell you we will make
ihe other fellow sell you cheap.
