pie. Thousands who btilTer from hack

j A large part of the extraordinary
i increase in the total value of farm
crops between 1S3 and 1?09 is at
tributed fo higher prices. This might
ile inferred from the fact that, while
(the acreage of crops with acreage re
ports Increased only 9.9 per cent, the
value of such crops increased 82 per
rent. It also appears by comparing
the percentages of increase in the
quantity of the various Individual
crops with the percentages of in
crease in the value. Thus, for all
cereals taken together, the produc
tion increased only 1.7 per cent,
while the value increased 79.8 per
cent; for hay and forage the produc
tion increased 23 per cent and the j
value 70.1'p er cent; and for cotton i
(not including cottonseed) the pro- to 19 e ,ht.n went to Rugsia and
