(eneral conditions have been favor
able and the prospects for the crop
are good. 'T'here Is a good season in
the ground, with plenty of moisture,
and preparations for planting have
been unusually satisfactory. 'T'he sea
son varies from a week to two weeks
late, owing chiefly to cold, wet weath
er. Where cotton was planted early,
as a rule, good stands have been ob
tained and very little replanting has
been necessary. There Is some com
plaint of scarcity of seed and poor
quality, but it is only Isolated. Only
warm weather Is apparently now need
ed to give the crop a satisfactory kirt.
As usual, soie sections are planting
llflre small grains at the expense of
cotton, but its efl'eet is insignificant.
A liberal use of fertilizers is indicated
this year, the average increase for the
helt being about 5 per cent.-News and
