What The Year Brought Forth' On
With tho actual results ot harvest
now definitely known, Ohio's present
wheat production is ono ot tho poor
est recorded by this department. The
harvest -figures hero presented are
based on. tho area returned by town
ship assessors, loss tho estimated area
plowed up as reported by our official
The harvest Is now estimated at
10,454,425 bushels, an average pro
duction' of but ten bushels per acre.
While this Is somewhat better than
earlier reports Indicated, It practical
ly means failure. Tho wheat gener
ally Is of poor quality. The state
average Is estimated at 7 per cent.
Ono yoar ngo quality was reported-at
9 1 per cent, with a total estimated
production 6f 31, 092,1182 bushels.
Of the crop of 1911, It Is estimated
that 10 per cont still remains in pro
ducers' hands. Correspondents re
port that in some sections of tho state
rains have retarded seeding. Many
note the fact that tlw 1913 area will
not bo as great as the one just har
Oats show a bumper production
The harvest Is estimated at 83,171,-
314 bushels. This is an icreaso of
approximately 37,000,000 bushels
over the estimated crop of 1911. The
nveraco nroduction per acre is re
ported at 44 bushels, ns against 31
bushels ono year ago. Tho quality of
tho grain is excellent.
Ityo and barley productions also
show healthy increases over last year.
Corn prospects are most flattering.
The present prospect is estimated nt
90 per cent based upon 35 bushels
per acre ropresentliig 100 per cont.
On tho corresponding dato one year
ago tho prospect was estimated at 91
per cent. As tho area planted Is much
greater than In 1911 tho harvest
should be most bountiful. Tho crop
is late in maturing, due to cool wet
weather in July and late planting.
Reports indicate that the yield of
potatoes will bo much greater than
that of last year. Correspondents
estimate tho present yield at 124 per
cent In comparison with 1911. In the
northeast section of tho stato damago
is roportcd by rot and grub wcjrm.
Tho crop of apples will fall far
short of tho excellent Harvest of last
year. In comparison with that crop
the present estimate is 03 per cent.

father's farm. These talks will be
followed by others given by memberb
of tho class.
The two sections of the first pri
mary, grade are still increasing in
numbers. Tho officials have given
this matter considerable attention.
They have looked for a building or
room that could bo suitably fitted up
for a school room. Up to this time
no room has been found that Is suit
ably lighted, properly ventilated ana
has- the necessary sanitary, conven
iences. Tiie present arrangement o.
half-day sessions is not perfect or
satisfactory, but tip to this time a
better one has not been suggested.
The superintendent says that the two
sections are making good progress
Tho officials will not be able to put
off very long tho erection of an addi
tion to tho school building if the in

Farmers mako poor wages when
corn and hay winter im tho field. On
March 1, 1912, 109,000 acres of
corn in the shock wero standing un
husked in tho field. Shocks twisted
and down, with much corn damaged
and rough feed valuo gone. Last
year 70,000 tons of hay woro stacked
in tho open. When hay soils at more
than $20 per ton, it is a big loss to
tho owner to havo It stacked outside.
Lost year was such a season as to
badly handicap tho farmer in taking
care of his corn crop. But tho loss
endured Bhould stir them to groatoi

gathered in evory county by tho per
