Exceptionally fcooil prowing wea
ther prevailed during the month of
Ma, and the condition of nil crops
except spring wheat and sugar beets
was above the U'n-year average on
June 1, and those two crops were
only one point below their respective
averages. The joint report, issued
today by John A. Doelle, State Com
missioner of Agriculture and Verne
II. Church, Agricultural Statistician,
U. S. Uureau of Markets and Crop
Estimates, also mentions an increas
ed acreage of clover and alfalfa hay
and a considerable decline in the area
devoted to spring wheat and barley.
The condition of winter wheat im
proved two per cent during the
month, and now indicates a crop of
10,425,000 bushels. This in one per
ct-nt below last year's condition on
the same date, but eight per cent
above the ten-year average.
The acreage of spring wheat sown ;
is .'4,000 as compared with 40,0001
last year and 100,000 in IVVJ. It
the present condition of 10 per cent
is maintained, a crop of 520,000
bushels will be harvested.
The oat acreage was increased but
cne per cent over last year, the to
tal being' estimated at 1,550,000. In
a few counties some intended acre-
ace was not sown because of wet
weather at the proper seeding time.
01 per cent is the condition reported
for the State, which represents a to-
tal production of 54,(120,000 bushels,
and which is three per cent above
the ten-year average.
Owing to a large carry-over of
corn from the abundant crop of last
year, and to delays in seeding caused
by wet weather, the acreage of bar
ley was reduced eight per cent below
that sown in 1021. Good growing
weather prevailed during May and
at the end of the month the croD ,
showed a condition of-01 per cent. -
This represents a prospective crop

except that of 1010 when 4,2G,000
tons werw harvested. Clover mea
dows are in excellent condition ex
cept in the few counties that suf
fered from drought last summer, and
an increase of three per cent in the
acreage to be cut is indicated. The
condition is 05 per cent. An in-
crease of 15 per cent in the acreage
of alfalfa gives an area of 28,000
acres to be cut for hay this year. The
large amount seeded this year is ex
pected to give a much greater" in
crease in the acreage for 1023. The
present condition is 00 per cent.
The condition of pastures rose
from 74 per cent during the month
of May, being 10 per cent better
than lart year and seven per cent
above the 10-year average for June
The prospects for apples vary
widely between different localities,
ranging from about 50 per cent up
to a full crop. Early varieties and
some winter varieties have set good
crops. Baldwins bloomed very lit
tle and will be a light crop in many
orchards. Spies bloomed more free
ly but are reported as setting rather
lightly. Present prospects indicate
a crop of 80 per cent, although it is
too early to determine what portion
of the set will remain on the trees.
If the present outlook were main
tained, the crop would aggregate
10,078,000 bushels.
A condition of 78 per cent is the
average for peaches of the several
hundred reports received, and indi
cates an approximate production of
1,070,000 bushels. Leaf curl has
been quite prevalent in portions of
southwestern counties, and the buds
were killed in some orchards by
freezing during the winter.
A pear crop of 573,000 bushels is
indicated from the present condition
of 8S per cent. Barrien, the leading
county in production, reports 87 per
cent of a crop.
The cherry trees bloomed heavily
but. did not set as well as expected
and the fruit in many orchards was
dropping at the time of report. Many
growers stated that the condition was
uncertain at that date. The average
condition reported is 72 per cent.
Grand Traverse County's report is 10
per cent above the state average.
Plums show a condition of 82 per
cent; grapes, 82 per cent; straw ber
ries, 00 per cent; blackberries and
raspberries, 90 per cent.

Rattan Furniture.
Many people Imagine that rattan and
willow furniture are the same. Rattan,
however, Is the Chinese Importation,
brought direct trvxn Singapore, and ls
susceptible of bending double without
even cracking. It possesses, besides,
great firmness and strength. Rattan is
therefore used for such articles as
baskets and lighter ornamental furni
ture. Knch wood has Its use, the rat
ton being better adapteu for working

What He Would Do.
Being told by the deacon that his

that die In the Lord!' "Boston Tran-
