YEAH AVERAGE 41,553,000 BU,
Kansas Is Banner" Wheat Ter
ritory f Entire World.,
Next Total Yield May Set Xew
Record for State.
Since the . war started in 1914; the
state of Kansas has grown an annual
Wheat crop equal to one-fifth of the
winter wheat output of the entire na
tion. This interesting illustration of
what a prominent factor Kansas has
been in helping to supply the .war torn
world with bread is gained from fig
ures gathered by J. C. Mohler, secre
tary, of the state board of agriculture.
These figures include the wheat yields
of five crops 1914 to 1918 inclusive.
The average for these five crops In
Kansas, is 111.553,000 bushels, while
the average yearly total for the entire
winter wheat crop of the United States
for the same period is S52, 594,000
bushels. ' That these have been real
war crops is indicated by the fact that
only once in its history, before the war
broke out, did Kansas exceed the
100,000,000 bushel mark.
Kansas is the banner wheat state of
the nation, with such a big margin to
her credit that it has not even a close
competitor. Its nearest competitor in
tne Wfi ter. "Wheat growing states Is
Nebraska, whose five. year average Is
61.000.000 bushels 50,000,000 less
than the Kansas average. North Da
kota has second honors in wheat pro
duction. It grows" spring wheat ex
clusively and has to its credit for a
five year average. 99.112.000 bushels,
or 10,000,000 bushels under the Kansas
That Kansas has been able to make
such a record, despite a terrific slump
in the 1917 crop, the total of which
was. 45,000,000, or less than half the
yearly "average, and furthermore to
the fact -that' for-the last two years the
crqB,4n. the, west third of the state
has beeit practically a total failure,
makes the showing all the more re
THeyef)f 1914 was the best il
lustration of the possibilities in wheat
production the state possesses. That
year saw the best the state ever pro
duced, when a total of 180,000,000
bushels in- round numbers was the
wheat output of Kansas farms. Had
conditions in western Kansas been as
favorable for wheat as in the eastern
part of the state, Kansas's wheat yield
this season would- have been probably
a third greater than it was. With the
federal aid plan, these western Kan
sas farmers this year will be able to
try again and next total yield may set
a new lec.nrd ffn Iantoo
Increased Wages Cause 5,000 Men to
- Remrn- to Railroads.
Vashington, Aug. 14. Higher wages
recently granted railway shopmen
have resulted in recalling to railway
employment more than 5,000 work
men who had left previously to accept
Jobs with higher pay. This has stim
ulated railroad work on cars and loco
motives and the railroad, administra
tion expect to clean up before win
ter the entire accumulation of thou
sands of damaged cars on sidings for
thsj last year.
Every company of American soldiers
abroad is allowed to adopt ouewar orphan.
The total cost to each soldier is 25 cents
a month. Each company is euthuaiastlcar
ly doing its share.
