"' th-W'ROI' ESTISIATES Louisville. Ky., Sept. 12. 1911) Kentucky's crop prospects now indicate the production of 424,490, 000 pounds of tobacco compared to prospects July 1 for 442.17S.000 pounds, and 427,500,000 pounds produced last year, according to I tho Government crop report issued . Drvant. field Estimates. Good growing weather now, however, is likely to Increase this estimate very much before the tobacco is all cut, as there was .: large acreage of late tobacco that is growing fast now and the total acreage Is considerably greater than last year. The United States crop of tobacco fsnow estimated at 1, 279,000,000 pounds compared to 1. 340,000,000 pounds produced last year. Tho Kentucky corn crop is esti mated at 79.682,000 bushels be cause of dvouth. Last year's crop was 93,600,000 bushels. Oats are estimated at 9,50,000 bushels com pared to 9,789,000 bushels, last year; potatoes 4,087,000 bushels compared to 5,625,000; sweet pota toes 1,125,800 bushels compared to 1, 235,000; barley 190,000 bushels compared to 196,000; apples 2.19C 000 bushels compared to 3,780,000; and sorghum tor 'sirup 2,631,000 gallons compared to 2,826,000 gal lons made last year, Hogs on hand for fattening In Kentucky are 2 per-cent more num erous than this time last year and 5 per-cent more numerous than us ual. Unless the corn crop turns out better than now expected this Is likely to prove quite a problem for many farmers who had planned to feed hogs this fall. In tho. Uni ted States there are now 4.6 percent less hogs than 1919., Wool produc tion In Kentucky this summer was 3.211,000 pounds compared to 3,- 058,000 pounds last year. Conditions of other crops In Ken tucky is; buckwheat 80 percent; clover for seed 85; millet 75; pas ture 72; field pens, cowpeas etc. 74; field beans 70; broom corn 75; rnbbago 65; onions 85; tomatoes 75; grapes 05; pears 36.

LONGEVITY DUE TO HARDSHIPS Says "Uncle" John Shell, 131, World's (West Alan, at State Fair Louisville, Sept. 16. With hU volro as strong ns a youth's, liU long white hair, th'i keen eyes of a hunter, normal hearing and a home ly phlllsophy and with the flavor of the soil, 'Uncle' John Shell. 131 years old, Kentucky's and possibly tho world's oldest man, Is attract ing considerable attention nt th. Kentucky state fair, which he Is vis iting In company with Common wealth's Attorney R, B. Roberts and Circuit Clerk John Asher. who accompanied the old man from Hy den, near his mountain home un Greasy creek. Leslie county. Three physicians examined t'.ia old man and found that he had tht pulse of a man of 40. Neverthe less the old man has feeling that he won't live long. dm Die 'IIapp.' Sow 'Ef I do die on my way home. said 'Uncle' John I'll have the sat isfaction of having seen the big ci ty anyhow. 'Uncle' John has distinct Ideas on economical subjects. He was watch ing a street circus parade at Lex ington last week. Mr. Roberts re lates, and displayed passing interest in the elephants and various attrac tions in line. After the parade h ) craned his neck and for some inlnu-' tes observed the crowd standing on the street. 'What's the matter. Uncle John' Mr. Roberts asked. 'All them people ought to be at work,' said the old man. That' the trouble with this yere country. Too many people a-loaln". I've worked all my life and when 1 go back home I'm a-goin' to work aRin Has n-Yciir-Old Sou Possibly the most remarkable thing about 'Uncle' John is his fiv-year-old son. This is his only child by his second wife, a woman of about 40 years of age, whom ne married five years ago. Of the chil dren by his first wife his oldest 'gal' Is 90. Uncle John claims, although she claims to be 97. The youngest 'boy' Is 60. Uncle- John has a remarkable memory. While he denies all the wild yarns about his having known Daniel Boone or having hobnobbed with Simon Kenton, ho does admit to having 'heored when I was a leetle chap' about the death of Geo. Washington. But this was so very long ago that he Is not sure but what he heard of it some time later, he is quite frank to say. One of the old man's outstanding charac teristics Is liis naive frankness and truthfulness. And he never varies a story, seemingly sticking to facts. The fact that In all his numerous family he has never had any trouble is the proudest boast of 'Uncle! John. VILLA AND OTHERS ASK LS. AID TO HELP REMOVE CARRANZA Washington.
