Crops This Year Larger Than
, Ever Before, Government "
CORN AND OATS ARE HIGH
All Previous Marks ShatteredOnly
Small Section of Northwest
- Has Suffered Ixs.
Washington, Oct 11. Bumper yields
of corn and oats hare Bwelled the total
harvest of cereals this year to by far
the largest aggregate in the history of
The total crops of wheat, corn, and
oats alone as reported by the govern
ment in its October report, issued yes
terday, are 4,765,000,000 bushels, or
249,000,000 bushels more than the big
harvests of 1909, and the largest ag
gregate yield on record.
"While the total yield of spring and
winter wheat was not of recent propor
tions, the Indicated harvest of corn and
oats shatters all previous high marks.
The October corn promise is for a crop
of 2,977,000,000 bushels, or about 205,
000,000 bushels more than the big crop
of last year, and 60,000,000 bushels
more than the previous high mark of
2,927,000,000 bushels secured in 1906.
Estimate on Oat Lifted.
The government reports again lifted
the estimate of the oats crop, this time
making it 1,096,000,000 bushels, or
practically 90,000,000 bushels mora
than the yield of 1909 which itself
shattered all previous records.
The government ralBed its Septem
ber estimate of the spring wheat yield
from 217,000,000 bushels to 233,475,000
bushels, which with the preliminary
estimate of 458,000,000 bushels for the
winter wheat makes a combined yield
of 691,000,000 bushels, compared to an
early season promise of only 406,000,
Ideal growing conditions during the
last half of the crop season overcame
the adverse factors early and resulted
In much larger yields of all grains than
seemed to be possible earlier in the
Most Successful Year Promised.
The figures sent out during the day
give promise for the most successful
year the American farmers have ever
had. Prices are not so high as last
year, but generally the larger yields
more than make up for this and the
fact that bumper yields of all the lead
ing cereals have been obtained means
that prosperity on the farms will be
widespread and not confined to any
About the only section that suffered
Eevere crop losses was in the northwest,
where the midseason drought caused
much damage. This was especially
the case in North Dakota and northern

FOR DAY OF ATONEMENT
Thursday Celebrated In the Jewish
Churches aa Yom Klppur.
The Jewish festival, .the Day of
Atonement Yom Klppur, the holiest
day in the Jewish calendar, falls this
year on the .13th dayof October, and
appropriate services, will bo held at
Temple Emanuel iniDavenport. The
Hebrew date is the 10th of Tishri
The festival is ordained in Leviticus
XVI. 29-34 and XXIII. 26-33. In
both passages it is styled "A Sabbath
of Solemn Rest."
The purpose of the Day of Atone
ment is clearly, indicated by its name.
It is intended 'to complete and crown
the work of the penitential season,
begun on the first Tishri (New
Year) by finally reconciling the soul
with the Almighty. Implicity. trust
ing in the divine forgiveness, the Is
raelite believes (that his contrition, if
it be really stneere, will atone for
him, will make him ."at one" once
more with his heavenly Father. The
day, then is devoted to a supreme ef
fort of penitence, a mighty endeavor
after communion with the Almighty.
It is spent in prayer and meditation.
It is kept, too, as a fast, in obed
ience to the command given in each
of the two passages above cited
where the expression "afflict his
soul" must be-understood, as it is
throughout the bible, as synonymous
The chief, the real aim of the Day
of Atonement is the reformed life.
All the external elements of the day's
observance Its worship and auster
ities are intended to promote this
supreme purpose. They cannot do
duty for It. The act of fasting Is
partly to' serve as a self-imposed
chastisement and partly It has a re
flex influence. For hunger and weak
ness tell upon the conscience; they
mortify pride, break down obstinacy,
cast men down before God in hu
mility and contrition. But fasting
does even more than that. Taking
the worshipper away from such car
nal occupations as eating and drink
ing, it helps to fix his thoughts upon
the needs of the soul. It makes the
day one of physical abstinence and
self denial, but also of correspond
ingly increased spirituality.

continue the Jewish rites, festivals

not as a matter of religion.

ATTACK ON PRIMARY LAW
Petitions Are Filed in Illinois Su
preme Court at Springfield.
Springfield, 111.. Oct. 11. Briefs
for the petitioners in the proceedings
attacking the legislative primary
election law have been filed in the
TJlinois supreme court. They set
forth the issues rising in the con
tests of William .Espey and Joseph
A. Mclnerney. "EBpey's briefs set
forth the contention that the legis
lature in passing the act conferred
on the senatorial district committees
authority to which they are not en
titled. Limiting of the nominations,
It declares, is a power which cannot
be conferred on the .representatives
of a political organization.
In the Mclnerney petition recogni
tion of his candidacy is demanded on
the theory that the senatorial com
mittee's action is void because notice
was not filed. This contention is in
addition to the proposition that the
comnSittee acted under an unconsti
news all the time Tb
