5N August, 1802, the armies of Gen

fronted each other on tho Rap

General Lee had determined to attack
Pope and conceived a plan as bril
liant as it was daring. Lie purposed
to leave one half of his army under
Longstreel in front of Pope and throw
the other half, under Jackson, by a
circuitous march to a point twenty

There were also two glasses of toddy
on the table.
A few da\ s thereafter I captured a
squadron of the Federal dragoons,
under Major Thomas Ililte of the reg
ular army, whom I bad formerly
known when a cadet at West Point.
One of the officers, who had just ar
rived from Washington, told me that
lie was at Willard's hotel, in that city,
and. seeing a crowd around Major
Clary, Tope's chief quartermaster.
Joined the group and found Clary tell-

OUlett's Station a few nights before.

i and that he had beeu working

and in view of the fact, as well as the
pestuoos character of the night,
he proposed to Marshall that they

"State Grain Inspector Armstrong,
who biiH been vinitiug all of the grain—
growing sections of the Htate, gives it as
his opinion that the crop of wheat this
coming season will be in the neighbor
hood of 86,000,000 huHheln; provided,
of course, that conditions remain favor
able. His estimate is based upon acre
age, which is substantially the name as
last year, and upon the present condi
tion of both the winter and the spring
•'The present condition of winter
wheat, it may be Htated, in such that a
full crop iH certainly assured. So far as
spring wheat is concerned, scarcely any
thing can be predicted at thin time of
the year, when much of the crop in jost
showing above gronnd, Have thin, that
in some sections of tbe stun —the I'a
lonse country, for example—the siz" of
tbe crop can be fairly estimated by the
amount of winter precipitation, for the
soil in that country taken up and retains
water like a aponge. A heavy hoow,
soaked into tbe gronnd as it melts, is
sufficient almost to insure a crop in the
aboenee of any rainfall after the t^rain ir>
"There w>;s an abundance of moisture
in the ground at the time the spring
wheat »uh Hovsn. The next, and really
the only, serioufl danger to the crop, and
that will affect but a portion of it in
some localities, is of hot, burning winds
when the grain is in the milk. Occasion
ally such winds cut down the crop ma
terially iv certain portions of the state.
"However, Washington, up to thin
time, has never had a serious crop fail
ure. It may be a little better or a little
worse than the average, but there is al
ways a wheat crop, and one of substan
tial size. The prospects are for a crop
greater than ordinary. On tbe est-iomte
of a production of 30,000,000 bushels,
there will be substantially that many
millions of dollars distributed among
the wheat farmers of this state before
the end of the year."
