LOCALITIES IN NEED OF RAIN
General Crop Conditions in Illinois
The weekly crop bulletin for the
week ending August K, 1904, follows:
The temperature was below the sea
sonal average throughout the week,
the mean daily deficiency averaging
about two degrees. While the days
were warm and considerable sunshine
prevailed, the nights were rattier too
cool. Widely distributed and oppor
tune showers occurred on the 4th, but
some localities, confined mostly to the
central district, are yet needing rain.
Except temporary interruptions by
showers, the weather has been very
favorable for fanning operations. The
soil is generally in good condition, and
considerable plowing for fall grain has
In the northern district corn main
tains an excellent condition. Some
correspondents remark that it was
never better. In th central district
the crop, in many localities, is suffer
ing for rain, and some fields are firing.
In the southern district the crop is
well advanced. The average condition
for the state is promising. Early fields
are earing and the later planted is
mostly in tassel.
With few interruptions the thresh
ing of oats is proceeding under favor
able conditions. Almost without ex
ception expressions of good quality
have been received, but reports inJT
cate a very uneven output, ranging
from light to heavy. As the threshing
of wheat proceeds the results are vary
ing, the quality being generally good
but the yield below average. Rye and
barley are yielding well. Buckwheat
is thrifty and promising.
Pastures are short and need rain in
portions of the central district: else
where they have been greatly improv
ed by recent showers. The hay crop
was secured in good condition and
some baling has been done. Reports
indicate a heavy second crop of clover.
Seed clover is beginning to bloom in
the southern district. The potato crop
is very promising at this time. A good
crop of su:?.r corn is ripening and will
Kcxrn be ready for canning operations.
Blackberries are plentiful, and plums
and grapes promise a good yield. Ap
ples and ptachers are scarce.
FLOUR IS UP IN THE AIR.
Prices by Carload Reaches $5.40 Per
Rock Island grocers have received
quotations on flour which are rather
startling. The price in carload lots,
subject to tight draft without discount,
is $5.40 per barrel. This would make
the flour cost $1.35 per sack at the
mills. If this price holds long it will
be necessary to raise the prices here
at retail. The quotations of sugar
are also somewhat higher than they
have been of late.
Baseball Park Lets Selling.
Several of the choice lots of the
Rock Island baseball park, which is
to be platted at the end of the season,
have already been sold by the owner,
W. E. Bailey. He paid $',C00 for the
ground, of which there are four and
one-half acres. It contains 26 lots.
Mr. Bailey expects to have them all
sold inside a month after the ground
has been platted.
