THE CROP OUTLOOK.
Report of the Condition at the Present
The crop bu letin of the depart
ment of agriculture for the week
ending vesterd iv, is as follows:
The tempera tire of the past seven
days has been i bout the normal in
the northern; slightly above the nor
mal in the central, the excess at
Springfield being 3 degrees daily,
while in the scuthern division the
temperature wr s slightly below the
average. The percentage of sun
shine has been about the normal
throughout th; state. There has
been almost an entire absence of rain
in the northern division, the rainfall
rai. ging from .0 to a trace; in the
central division the rainfall was be
low an average, ranging from .00 to
0.75 inches: in the southern di vision
the rainfall w.n about the normal,
ranging from a trace to 2.20 inches,
and fairly distributed.
" Corn Serl uly Damaged.
Corn, generally, has been seriously
damaged by continued drought, many
fields being permanently injured,
many of our correspondents being of
the opinion th it it will make onlv
half a crop. The condition of this
crop has been improved somewhat in
the southern dhision, where the rain
was heaviest. A few correspondents
report injury from grasshoppers,
though not scrims. Very little fall
plowing for whe.it has been done yet,
owing to the dry and hard condition
of the ground, although a few re
ports indicate the ground as being
suitable, where sufficient rain has
fallen. Thrashing of wheat and oats
is almost complc ted. Some farmers
are holding their wheat for better
prices. The average yield of oats
seems to be alout 30 bushels per
acre. Tastures are badly needing
more rain, and f irmers are still feed
ing stock in some localities. Many
farmers report stock water scarce.
The Pike, Ogle and Macoupin county
correspondents report grasshoppers
as still injuring young clover. Pota
toes will give a very light yield.
Broom corn is being harvested. The
fruit crop will be light in quantity
and poor in quality, except grapes,
which are repc rted as bein;r fair.
There has been 1 ttle or no improve
ment in tne condition of gardens.
