ILLINOIS AND IOWA CROPS.
The Report of the Condition of the Grow
According to the Illinois weather
bureau the temperature in the north
and center the past week was above
normal. In the south one to three
degrees bclo v. The sunshine was in
excess of the seasonable amount, ex
cept in a few extreme southern coun
ties, and there has been an entire ab
sence of rail , resulting in injury to
the growing crops. A general rain
is needed. Wheat harvesting is
progressing in the center and south.
The yield and quality is generally a
great disappointment. In some sec
tions of the t-outh the yield was fair
and quality good. Corn on light soil
is injured by the continued drought;
many fields are badly fired, and it is
feared the crop will be cut short.
On good soil, however, it is generally
in good condition, though needing
rain. Chincl bugs are damaging the
corn in sum.' localities. Ilav har
vesting is alout completed. Light
in many placi s, but an immense crop
in some sections. Rye cutting is
about finished. Pastures arc burn
ing up for lack of rain. Blackberries
are drying up. Apples and peaches
are dropping from the trees. Some
complaints of dry rot in potatoes and
tomatoes" are made. Oats harvest
ing is progressing in the north, but
owing to the rust the yield will be
less than ant cipatcd. Several cor
respondents report oats cut green on
account of the army worms.
The Iowa bulletin savs: '-The
past week was hot with almost un
intcrruped sut shine, but the nights
were relatively cool, reducing the
average temperature degrees be
low normal. The rain fall was very
light. A largt r part of the state re
ceiving none since the 15th. The
weather was all that could be desired
for hay-making and a large amount
was secured in an excellent condi
tion. The work is practically com
pleted. "The oats harvest is in progress in
the north and center, and is about
finished in the south. Reports tell
of extensive damage by rust in the
south and cent r and scattered local
ities in the north. While the acreage
is large, the crop will likely fall 20
to 30 per cent below the average.
Spring wheat is also affected by the
rust. Corn is making a stalwart
growth everywhere and is very prom
ising. It needs rain, howcver,and all
immature crop 4 arc beginning to
show the effects of drought."
