THII HOCK ISLAND ARGUS, Fill DAY, AUGUST 30, 1889.
A ravaraale Heprt Made y Che

The state board of agriculture bu
Issued Iti Illloolg crop report for tbe lit
of August, and tbe showing it a moat
Tbe year 1880 baa ao far oeen an on
usually productive one, and farm crops
of every variety bare yielded largely.
Not only baa tbe yield been good, but
tbe quality baa been above an average,
and tbe farmers of tbe atate bave reason
to congratulate themselves upon tbe
present condition of agricultural affairs.
While there ia some complaint of dis
ease among live stock, it ia generally in
isolated localities in tbe various counties
where It ia reported, and by no means
general. With tbe One pasture for sums
mer. and plenty of bay for winter feed.
there ia every reason to believe that tbe
coming wlnti'f will not be a bard one on
Notwithstanding tbe fart that tbe area
in wheat this season. 2.003.383 acres, is
more than 300. MM) acres less than In
1333. tbe Increased yield per acre makes
tbe total number of bushels produced
nearly S.OUO.Inm) bushels larger than last
year's crop. The average yield per acre,
eighteen busufla, baa been exceeded but
twice In tbe past thirty years. In 1879 and
1883, and then only by a fraction of a
bushel. The uuaUtj of the berry this
season ia as good as any ever rained in
tbe state This fact explains largely the
Increased yield per acre, the beads being
usually large and well filled. Tbe great
amount of rainfall during tba period that
the berry waa in tbe milk, prevented the
damage from Insects which so frequently
happens at that time. Tbe only material
damage by insects was done by the grain
plant louse in Perry county. The price
received for wheat. 70 cents, Ik low, but
tbe total vaJue of the crop, $36,093.2M).
ia $1,904,813 more than waa received by
the farmers for this crop a year ago.
There la a slight Increase in tbe spriag
what area, over that aown in 18S8. Tbe
area of tbe present crop is 117.864, aa
against 93.037 acres lat year.
- With tbe evception or 1883, the
area seeded to oata thia aeaaon is
larger than ever before In Illinois.
Tbe 18H0 area waa 3.6G3.93G acres.
.Just before harvest the prospect waa
good (or a phenomenally large oat crop.
bat tbe heavy rains about tbe middle of
Joly caused a great deal of lodging, and
when tbe grain was ready for cutting.
much of It was beaten out and lost. On
this account the average yield per acre
was diminished, ami waa but 39 bushels,
one bushel less than lat year. This,
however, is above the average yield for a
term of years.
Tbe total oat crop of tbe state, 142.
150,811 busbels, ia tbe largest ever bar
vested in Illinois, except last year. But
three tlmea since 18H0 baa tbe price of
oata been ao low as this season, when
they bring but 20 cents per bushel. The
total value or the oat crop ia f23,931,
004. Tbe area devoted to rye this season.
904.873 acres, is 71. 635 acres less than
in 1333. Tbe yield waa 3,803,419 busns
ell. valued at $1.4)16.239.
Tbe total area in barley was 40.083
acres; tbe yield 1.207. 157 bushels, and
the value f 51 1.994
Meadows bave done splendidly thia
season, and the average yield of 1.55 tons
per acres is larger than for a number of
years past. New meadows particularly
have done well, but there is some com
plaint in regard to old onea. The area in
meadows this season. 3,170,231 acres,
waa 132.553 acres more than In 1883.
Tbe total yield of hay was 4.910.544 tons,
which, at tbe average price of f 5 45 per
ton brought the farmer 2fi,819.8Sl. Tbe
value or the bay crop was larger in Cook
than in any other county or the state,
where it returned f 360.678.
Tbe condition of corn baa improved
somewhat aince June 20. when the aver
age condition was 87 per cent. Tbe
early planted corn, aa a rule, baa done
well, but that planted later baa not made
ao good a growth. The wet weather in
lay and early June prevented cultivation
when the young corn moat needed it,
and the weeds got ahead of the corn in
aome sections. On the bottom and low
lands corn does not look so well aa on
high ground, whence very favorable re
port bave been received. Tbe cool
weather baa retarded the growth of corn
to lome extent, but should there be no
early frosU the corn crop of the atate will
be very lame. The area in corn tbis sea
son, 8.997.C55 acres, is but 50,000 acres
lesa than last year.
liut once in ten year, in 1314. baa tbe
August 1st condition or pastures been so
good aa thia year, when they are rour per
cent above the average. The season has
been unusually favorable for their
rrowth, and the onW tomplaint in re
gard to tbem is that they grow so rank
and contain ao much water, that tbey are
not ao (alleninK a usual.
Tbe report on live stock are. on the
whole. Rood. Tbe tine paxlure haa been
favoraole to them, and the canes of dis
ease are comparatively few. Fliea bave
troubled nurses and cattle very much in
Livingston, Macon. McLean, I'eoria and
tfagamon couotiea. In Valine countv
there la complaint of aore mouth, and a
disease a ace ting the bead and lungs of
bogs, supposed to be caused by rich paa
lures, and the hot, wet atmosphere.
There is some complaint of milk sick'
nesa in the river bottoms of Wabash
county, and Warren and Mercer counties
a few calves nave died or blackleg.
In aome parts or Champain county a
diaeaae called hydrophobia has killed aome
horsea and pigs, but the correspondents
uo not descrllie it.
A few borsea are reported to bave died
from the effects or tbe extreme heat of
July 13th, in Jo Daviess countv.
Tbe pigs In portions of Irouuois countv
are affected with a disease which makes
tbem weak in their bind legs.
A good many horses bave died in Ru
reau county. No cause assigned. Many
or the young colts have died in Kankakee
There la a good deal or distemper
among horses, and a number of animals
bave died. TfT disease ia reported in
Hrown, Champaign, Uallatatin. Hamil
ton, Iroqiiola, Lawrence and Wayne
Hog cholera baa been quite prevalent
in a numher or counties, and in Law
rence county the bogs are said to be dy
ing by the hundred.
There ia more or lesa cholera in locali
ties in Case, Christian, Clark. Clinton,
Coles, Jasper, Mercer, Pulaski, Scott,
Bhelby, Wabash, White and Williamson
counties. Another disease, not described,
