For 1919, though the totals were much higher, being !1. 053. 365.(100 and $1,254,006,000 respec tively, they show the decline In price for the current year and not & re. ductlon In production. The two states which rank next to Texas are Io-wa and Illinois. Crop val ues, In the same manner as given for Texas are: Iowa $431,213,000 and $459,191,000; Illinois, $431,828,000 and $459,179,000. On December 1st. our corn cron was valued at $146,328,000; wheat at $27, 391.000; oats at $29,106,000; cotton at $227,200,000; grain sorghuma at $73, 800,000; hay at $17,978,000: hroomcorn at $1,512,000; rice at $11,942,000; and sweet potatoes' at $12,148,000 with minor crop such a barely, rye, sor ghum, sirup, peanuts and sugar mak ing up the balance. This state with an acreage In grain sorghum equal to the combined acre age in Oklahoma, New Mexico, Ari zona and California, or 35 per cent of that- of the United States, produces 60.992.000 bushel of grain or 48 per cent of the total In all states which Is valued at 56 per cent of the to tal for the country. Though we have many minor crops they are not insignificant. In 1920 there were 2.215.000 trillions of suerar cane sirup produced as compared to z. 421, ooo in 1919. There were 13,974, 000 pounds of sugar made from domestic- cane. The freeze In early April damaged fruit and the spring potato crop severely lnmrled the stand of early planted corn and, with the dry weather fqllowlng delayed the germination or cotton wnne tne rail rains have heavily damaged rice. These, however, seem to have been our most adverse weather condition and have been offset by other ex ceedingly favorable condition throughout the later month. Unofficial estimate of spring pro duction of truk crops In the Rio Grande Valley place the movement at 4691 car for caboage, 4it ror mixed tuff 100 cars of lettuce, 151 cars or potatoes. 847 cars of onions and 85 car of tomatoes while some 2,000 cars of cabbage are said to have re mained in the field due to railway congestion and the switchmen's strike at that time. The state Is a leader In the pro duction -of stock and range cattle as well aa cotton and has produced 17, 600,000 pounds of .wool as compared to 14.986,000 pound In 1919. In spite of the difficulties which be set the farmer this year the total cul tivated acreage was increased from 24.622.000 acres In 1919 to Zb.43vt.uuu. This fall the winter wheat acreage was Increased 40 per cent over that of 1920. Ranges have been good through out most of the year, water abundant and in most cases the range was un derstocked. The level of prices to producers of the United States for the priclpal crops decreased about 4.7 per cent during December; in tne last ten years tne price level increasea in line period about 2.4 per cent On Jan uary 1st 1921, the Index figure or prices was about 46.8 per cent lower than a year aito. 41.8 per cent lower than two year ago, and - 10.4 per cent lower than the average of the last ten years on January 1st The prices or -meat animai- nogs, cattle, sheep, and .M.iukena to lie pro ducer of the Unltd States decreased 18 per cent from November loth, to December 15th; in the. last ten year price decreased In like period 1 per cent On December 16th, the index fiaure of price for theae meat ani mals w is about 26.6 per cent lower than a year ago, 86.7 per cent lower than two year ago, and 1.6 per cent higher than the average for the last ten years on December 16th. We face at the present time, tne pe culiar situation of. having on hand abundant crop and stocks of most every kind and yet there oDtain an underlylna dissatisfaction with condi tions; an association which is not gen erally common In normal times and yet, a many of the factors account able for this are unusual and since the country must be baslcly sound. It all seems to point to the correctness of a v'aw of conservative optimism. V.VEW YORK THEATER W ILL SHOW FIRST III H PICTURES ONLY. (Cy A. N. P.) Chicago. Feb. 3..
