Indications Point to More Corn, Oats

Season Backward in Spots, but Gen
eral Conditions Very Favorable.
Reports* to The Journal confirm
the former intimations of a more de
rided tendency on the pait of Minne
so ta fanners to sow coarse grains and
macaroni wheat this year, and indicate
that in spring wheat the acreage in the
state will be about the same as last
year, with more probability at present
of a slight decrease than oi a,n, increase.
The season is not early, and in some
localities seeding is behintl the aver
age, yet for the whole state there is
no material delay, and prospects are
Corn is a favorite in some localities,
and oats and barley will cover a larger
area. Minnesota farmers who raised
macaroni wheat last year did so well

much larger acreage, altho Minnesota

amount of moisture in the soil is re

.farmers are quite optimistic.
HalloekSeeding of wheat is well
advanced, fine weather having reached
here two weeks earlier than last year.
The wheat acreage will be smaller by
one-third than last year owing to the
little fall plowing done. Kittson coun

Barnesv illeSeeding is not so far ad

age will not be as large. In view of
the late season, there will be, much
more macaroni wheat sown. Present
indications jtfould. point.to an increase
in the acreage of oattTand barley or
should the rains continue a very mate
rial increase in flax. With fair weath
er flax would remain about as last year.
AdaSeeding around here has hard
ly commenced \et as only a few farm*
ers have been able to get out on their
lands on account of the wet weather,
but it is hoped that by next week if
this drv weather keeps on they will be
able to commence. The wheat acreage
will not be as large, and oats and barley
more geneially sown. There will be
more macaroni seeded than before, as
macaroni gave good success last year.
With the heavy raius of last "fall and
the heavy snow during the winter
added to the abundance of rain this
spring the fields are not in very 'good
shape for seeding and the outlook not
the brightest. Only with favorable
weather can a crop be expected. The*
southwestern part of Norman county is
worse off, as in these fields the show
lodged more heavily during the winter
#nd it will take some time before they
can be plowed.
Fergus PallsThe wheat acreage will
somewhat decreased. There will be
more macaroni sown and less spring
wheat a very considerable increase in
macaroni. Practically no oats or bar
ley are sown yet however, the farmers
are planning to sow a larger acreage of
these grains. The rye crop here is not
woith mentioning. The acreage will
pi obably be about the same as last year.
Flax is also an unimportant crop here
the yield is seldom heavy, but there will
hf as much sown this year as last.
There has been too much rain. Other
wise the soil is in good condition.
For this immediate vicinity, which isr
very decidedly rolling, the outlook is
good. There is still time to raise a.good
crop in all lines. In the vicinity of
Foxhome and Everdell it will be impos
sible to seed for at least a week, and
in some places longer. This means that
the grain is going into the ground very
and it will take an exceptionally
favorable season to produce an average

age is a little larger. There will be
considerable more macaroni wheat
sown. Less flax this year, practically
no rye. Oats and barley about the

Grant county this year.. On the flats
west of here it is still too wet, and
seeding will not begin for another
week. The wheat acreage will bo about
the same as last' year, with an increase
in macaroni. ,About the usual acreage
of flax and barley. The season is two
weeks later than last year, but the soil
is in goc#l condition.
Albert LeaSeeding in Freeborn
county is behind last year. The wheat
acreage will be smaller trn account of
the low- price and the lateness of seed
ing. Vry little macaroni is raised
here and the acreage sown will be light.
More flax will be sown if seed can be
secured, tis there iff sale for the straw,
but about the same amount of oats and
barley will be seeded as last year.
There has been so much rain that seed
ing has been delayed until this week
and the soil in many' fields is wet.

I would be difficult to say in just
what numbers Mme. Nordica was most
successful. The "Dieh Theure Halle,"
from Tannhauser, was given with splen

Each note rang clear and true with al
most declamatory precision, and yet
full of musie. An encore was of course

wag exquisitely sung. At the conclu
sion of this group, Mme. Nordica was
recalled again and again for a double
encore and sang two verses of the
"Suwannee River," much to the de
light of the audience.
In the diva's second group of French
songs, she was most felicitous. They
were all charming, and sung with grace
and an intuition of the spirit of the se
lections that was delightful. As an

song, less shrill than that pf Gadski's
and perhaps for that reason a little less
effective. The German group of songs,
including Grieg's immortal "Im
Kahn" and Strauss' "Serenade"
closed the diva's numbers, and at the
close of the concert she was again
called and recalled until a last encore
was sung. I was superb, and formed a
fitting close to the evening's program.
The Aplaying of Signor Angelo Pa

audience and"'betrayed the capable

dash and a clearness of interpretation,
that, taken at the presto tempo, was
marvelous indeed. The Rubinstein
number was well played, but was sur
passed in its execution and results by
the Gottschalk's "Pasquinade," which
was played after three recalls. Ro

The University Glee^ and Mandolin
clubs an-eared in a "twilipiit" pro

day afternoon and achieved a bigger
success than they have this season.
The work of both clubs was excellent,
and the audience, which completely
filled the chapel, showed its apprecia

A. Milner made the hit of the
afternoon with his splendid singing of
the "Border Ballads." which he does
admirably, and by singing "Dearie'

a fine number and well received.
