NEARLY ALL CORN SAFE
' FROM DANGER OF FROST
Only Late Planted in Northern Part of
Illinois Could Now Be
Cloudy weather, with temperature
slightly above normal, prevailed
throughout the week, according to the
crop bulletlu summary for Illinois for
the week ending Sept. IS. Rainfall
was unevenly distributed throughout
the state, being very heavy In some
portions of the central and southern
districts. (whtle In many localities there
was practically none. In portions of
the central district, the preparation of
the soil' for fall seeding was delayed
by wet conditions, and it Is too dry in
eoine localities of the northern and the
southern; but, in general, the work is
well advanced. Reports indicate that
an increased acreage of what will be
sown in most sections.
Corn made rapid progress toward
maturity. In the central and southern
districts the bulk of the crop is as
sured, and in the northern the early
planted is past danger from frost. Cut
ting continued in the southern half of
the state and extended to the northern.
In Adams, Douglas, McLean and Mor
gan counties many fields suffered In
jury as a result of high winds.
Pastures continue excellent. The
bulk of the crop of broom corn has
been harvested with excellent results.
Cowpeas are yielding well. Potatoes
are being dug. and the crop is gener
ally poor, with much complaint of rot
ting. Apples continue to fail, and the crop
Is poor In quality apd yield. Grapes
are yielding exceptionally well.
Peaches! Peaches! Peaches!
Racbman'8 is the place to buy your
