Mountrail County. Stanley X. U., June 3, 1911.—Crop renditions excellent and seeding all done with exception of Hax. Weather has been cool and cloudy the past w«vk with occasional showers, a heavy rain tailing Thursday and there is now sufficient moisture to last un til the latter part of the month. Larger acreage under cultivation this year and more work has been done to put the soil in condition Grain up about three inches. Burleigh County. Hismarck. June 3, 1911.—Conditions for a bumper crop were never better, plenty of rain having fallen except in portions of a few townships, where ihe tirst rain fell May 29 and 30. Land generally was in excellent shape for ceding this spring and early sown grain is in A No. 1 condition. Late sown crops, however, on land not properly prepared for crop will be full of weeds and will not make more than half a crop, demonstrating that it pays to farm land well and that bushels not acres count. A large acre age of flax wil. be sown also of corn, the seeding of which latte'r will con tinue for another week. La Moure County. La Moure, N D., Juno o, 1911.—Rain has fallen in torrents the past week and crop prospects are corresponding ly bright. An unprecedented acreage of flax has been put in and more is being seeded. Early grain looks ex cellent also corn. Potatoes and other vegetables have a good start, plants being larger than ever before at this time of year. Weather up to this time has been all that could be desired. McHenry County. Granville, N. D., June 3, 1911.—Past week has been most favorable for growing crops Rainfall wag .13 on Monday, .40 on Thursday and .92 on Friday. This following a rainfall of 1.73 inches during May puts the soil in excellent condition. The weather has been warm and grain is making a rapid growth and conditions could hardly be more favorable. Richland County. Wahpeton, June 3, 1911.—The past week has been one of good rains which fell on four days*, aggregating 2.12 inches, thus insuring a good hay crop and also stimulating the pas tures. All grains are looking excel lent for a good yield and late sown barley is mostly all up. Cool nights are retarding the growth of corn somewhat, and farmers are waiting for the land to dry out so that corn and potatoes can be plowed the first time. Live stock is doing well since pastures have improved with the timely rains. Cut worms «re unusa ally severe in gardens, but grasshop pers which at one time threatened damage seem to have been checked by the heavy rains. Clover sown this spring is up and, with plenty of moist ure will make a good catch. On tbe farm from which this Is written al falfa will be ready for the first cut ting by the 6th or 7th. Cats County. Casselton, June 3, 1911.—There was never a time in the ^history of Cass county when crop conditions were more favorable than now. There Ransom County. McLeod, N. D., June 3.—The weath er for the past week has been very favorable for all plant growth with ample precipitation, insuring ample store of moisture for some time to come, and fields are in better shape for a big crop than ever before. Seed ing is all done except flax and millet. Wheat, oats and barley are coming North Dakota Crop Report FOR WEEK ENDING JUNE 3, 1911 COMPILED BY DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE. BISMARCK W. C. GILBREATH, COMMISSIONER SUMMARY Bismarck, N. D., June 5, 1J»11.—Rarely before in the history of the state of North Dakota have such favorable conditions existed at the commencement of a crop season as at the present lime. The condition of the ground at seeding may be considered as perfect and over by far the greater part of our territory timely rains and congenial weather conditions have still further added to the prosperous outlook. Only in the .southwestern part of the state has moisture been lacking, and here rain must soon occur in order to secure an average yield. Elsewhere an abundance of moisture has fallen to keep the growing crops in the best condition, while in Traill county too much rain has fallen on the lowlands, in some instances drown in" out the crops. A significant feature of the present season is the tremendous increase reported in corn .-icreage. Noticeable also is the general tendency toward diversified farming and the cultivation of tame forage crops. The high price of flax while in some instances militating against its being sown on account of the high prime cost, has generally induced a liberal seeding of this cereal and indications point to a greater acreage than in former years. The favorable breaking season and large numbers of steam and gaso line breaking outfits in the state has also contributed to this result. The wild hay crop seems already a^Mired and. considered as a whole, the general outlook for 1!)11 is about as rosy as it well could be. Wells County. Harvey, June 3, 1911.—Crop pros pects are perfect. We have had sev eral heavy rains during the pasi week, so that there^s sufficient moist ure for some time. All crops are showing a healthy growth and never looked better at this time of year. Wheat covers about three-fourths of the acreage, the balance being prin cipally in oats. Very little barley and flax have been sown. Local news papers estimate an acreage of 4,000 planted to corn. Estimates increase of per cent in total acreage over last season. Adams County. Hettinger, June 3, 1911.—Weather conditions over Adams county the past week have not been very favorable. There have been a few local show ers but other localities have had none. Precipitation at the sub-station this spring has been less than one inch. A light shower was reported last night in parts of the wesi and north por tions of the county Oats and wheat that have come up are at a staifllstill, but none are suffering yet. Most of the flax is sown, but is not yet up. Cavalier County. Langdon, June 3, 1911.—Crop con ditions are the best they have been in years for this time of year. The ground was in fine condition for seed ing and there has been an abundance of moisture since then. Wheat is all up and looking fine and quite free from weeds. The early 3own grain is cov ering the ground in nice shape and wheat has a fine start and is stooling nicely. Oats are all in and in most cases are up and looking well. Bar ley is nearly all in and will be com pleted by the end of next week. More flax has been sown than for a few years past and some fields are already up and looking well. General acreage of grains of all kinds, excepting bar ley, has been increased. More corn has been put in and more grass has been sown. Walsh County. Grafton, June 3, 1911.—Crops gener ally never looked better for this sea son of the year. Seeding was finished in good season and since then we have had plenty of rain throughout the county. Weathej conditions have been ideal for small grain and the acre age is equal to if not larger than last I year. A few scattering reports are coming in of damage to flax and gar den truck from cut worms, but the damage does not seem to be general. Ward County Minot, June 3 1911— Crop condi tions in Ward county this spring are the most favorable they have been for years, and all fears on the score of moisture are at rest, as the coun try is thoroughly soaked in fact rain 1 have been several soaking rains dur ing the past ten days, yet there is no water standing anywhere, and no complaints of too much rain Acre age of flax will be fully 20 per cent more than last year. Farmers are also planting big fields of corn and acreage will be at least double of last year. Plenty of fine home grown garden truck is on the market, but cut worms are appearing in places. Morton County. New Salem. June 3, 1911.—A rain fall of 2.24 inches was recorded here during the week and reports indicate that the precipitation has been quite general. Light showers through May kept the grain in fair condition, ex cept in some localities where the rain fall was lighter and high winds drift ed some fields badly. During the past week, however, splendid rains have caused a wonderful improvement in both grain fielda and pastures. Corn is being freely planted and flax is now being seeded ing which was well started by the middle of April was somewhat de layed by frequent rains, but was prac tically completed by May 15. The seed germinated quickly, and cool weather following the rains during the past ten days has helped stooling and, with the exception of a few low spots and dips, the fields show an almost perfect condition for this time of year. Warm, bright weather is now needed Oats and barley seeding is now completed with conditions ex ceptionally favorable. Corn acreage will be treble that of last year and seeding is not yet. completed. Flax is still being sown with a probably larger acreage than last year and con ditions are perfect, especially for that sown on breaking. Hay crop assured, stand being almost as heavy now as late in June other years. Potatoes and garden produce in good shape but warmer weather is needed. Ramsey County. Church's Ferry, June 3. 1911.—Ex cessive rain, especially of late, has interfered with work, making quite a late seeding this spring, but wheat and most other cereals have been put in the ground, although in some *lo-1 fine with wheat stooling good. Corn and. all kinds of grain are In excel is five to six inches high and culti- lent condition and making good vation has commenced. Early seed ed flax is up and looks healthy. Sargent County Forman, June 3, 1911.—Wheat, bar ley, flax and corn are looking excel lent with splendid prospects for a very good crop. The earliest sown oats were frosted and came up thin and have also suffered quite severely from cut worms. Over three and a half inches of rain have fallen in May and June and the weather generally has been excellent for crops. All farmers are wearing a great big smile. rye. speltz, corn and flax but wheat I growth. Outlook at this time is most encouraging for a large harvest. Graas is plentiful, indicating a large yield of hay. Potatoes in good shape. Much corn is up, healthy and promising. Bushes are loaded with small fruit. Horses and cattle, as a rule, are in good order, notwithstanding the short age last fall of feed. Brood animals have been prolific this spring and young are doing well. Acreage to crops will equal if not exceed that of a year ago. Farmers are elated over promising conditions Traill County. Hatton, June 3. x911.—Crops on high lands are looking fine. All crops are sown except millet. May was a little too warm for wheat, interfering somewhat with stooling. Rain has been too plentiful in parts of the county this spring, the lowlands being tinder water several times. Last night a cloudburst occurred in the north ern part of the county and rain is still falling at this writing. Hundreds ot acres will undoubtedly be drowned out. Grand Forks County. Larimore, June 3, 1911.—Wheat about ten days ahead of the average with a full acreage all sown three weeks ago. Full acreage of oats of above average condition at this time. Barley acreage will be about 80 per cent of last year and is about all sown. Corn acreage abrot three times larger than ever before. Potato acre age is cut down considerably. Rain tall since May has been 7.78 inches. Compared with a ten-year average the condition of crops is estimated at 105 per cent. Stutsman County,. Jamestown, June 3, 1911.—Crops growing nicely, being six to eight inches high, with a good stand and color The weather is warm and very favorable for general farm work and for growing crops. Frequent rains have put the ground in good condition. More land being seeded to wheat and less to barley and flax, although a con siderable amount of r.ax is being put in on breaking. More corn than usual is being planted. Crops look very promising and if present weather con ditions continue there ought to be a good yield in fact crop and weather conditions could not be better. Logan County. Napoleon, June 3, 1911.—Some good ralTts and repeated lihnt showers have placed land in this county in the best of condition for a good crop. Much of the acreage was fall plowed and was cropped unusually early this spring and as a consequence is look- tions of the county are very dry, hav ing the best of any crop in late years. Crops on old ground are generally wheat and seed crops Reports indi cate an unusually large acreage of corn, barley and oats. Because of the high prices of feed and seed there will be much less land broken than for the past two years, and conse quently less seeded to flax. Breaking is going on however 1H all parts of the county and many thousands of acres will be broken. Several steam plows are working in neighborhoods where large tracts are available and the land is not too hilly. Oliver County. has interfered somewhat with late of light showers during the past seeding. Early sown wheat is up six inches or more and growing rapidly. There has been a large amount of breaking done, due to the facilities offered by the increasing number of traction plow outfits, and there is yet more to do as quickly as conditions' will permit, which will largely in crease the acreage devoted to flax. Nelson County. Lakota, June 3, 1911.—Wheat seed- Center, June 3, 1911.—A succession month were followed Jun-e 1 by a two inch downpour. The soil is now in excellent condition. Late sown grain looks very good. Some poorly culti vated early fields are rather weedy. All seeding is done except flax. The corn acreage is at least six times that of last year. Much breaking i3 being done for flax. Pastures are very good. Eddy County. New Rockford, June 3, 1911. —Wheat, oats and barley are all seed ed and looking fine. Corn and pota toes just coming up and growing rap idly. Large acreage of flax being seeded. Have had two heavy rains this week with a deluge last night. At least two inches has fallen the past week and no more is needed at pres ent. Stark County. Dickinson, June 3. 1911.—The rain fall at the Dickinson experiment sta tion for May was 1.63 inches which -was well distributed through the month. On June 1st another heavy fall of rain occurred, being 1.14 inches on that day. Wheat and oats are well advanced. Flax seeding commenced about May 10th and about half is now up one inch, and over four-fifths of the flax land is seeded. A small amount of sod land is yet to be seed-1 ed to flax, which will probably con tinue until June 20. Rainfall has been general all over the county and as far west as the Montana line. Dunn County. Manning, June 3, 1911.—Dunn coun- 1 a is it a versity of grain, wheat, oats, barlev. calities flax and snmp othor trains sro I ra'n" during the month of May, and (Consumptive) persons are often accora yet being sown.

Tbe big plowing rigs have been on the move since March, and wheat and oatg are coming nicely, though not so far advanced as this time last year. Steele County. Hope, June 3, 1911.—With a com paratively dry seeding time the seed went into the ground in excellent con dition and with an abundance of rain following, grain has come up evenly and is a fine, healthy stand. Farmers have never done their work in the fields so well as this spring and pros pects for all kinds of grain were never better. There has been some com plaint the past few days that a worm BISMARCK DAILY TRIBUNE has been doing some damage in the fields, cutting off the roots of the grain and some spots in a few fields are thinned out,' but the affected spotg are as yet not numerous enough or of sufficient area to cause alarm. All grains seeded except flax and mil let. Gardens are fln«. but cut worm6 have done some damage. Mcintosh County. Ashley. June 3, 1911.—More rain this spring than we had all last summer More hail than we have had the last three years. Kv-erytiring that is plant ed is growing nicely. Prospects have I never been better, though a few small patches have been set back by se vere sand storms. Rolette County. Rolette, June 3. 1911.—Crop condl-j tions have seldom been better at this time in the season than at present al though considerable damage has been done by the wind in places. A num ber of farmers have reseeded a part of their wheat land to later crops. A heavy rain covered the county June 2, and there is no lack of moisture for growth, and surface wetting will I be all that is needed for some time to make conditions right. More corn and potatoes have been planted by some farmers than usual and diversity of crops is increasing. More attention will be given to forage crops in the future, and the growing of clover, grass and trees and other means will be gradually but surely adopted where file soil texture renders it necessary. Light frost on May 27-28, but no ma terial damage was done. Barnes County. Valley City. June 3. 1911.—In the history of Barnes county farming there has never been a better prospect for a good crop than at present. We have had abundant rain and the weather as a whole has been ideal for plant life. The acreage of wheat has been cut down in favor of corn and flax, more than four times the acre age of corn being planted tnan ever before. The hay crop promises a big yield. Alfalfa is doing wonderfully well. Emmons County Hazelton, June 3, 1911.—Fine local showers during the week. All early seeded grain looks fine, enowing prom ise of a good crop, but late grain '.s very weedy. Corn acreage is larger this year. Seeding of flax about half Bonaparte. finished. Grass farther ahead than for a number of years at this time. Winter rye all headed out and looking fine ranged' above normal. Williams County, Hettinger County. Mott, June 3, 1911.—Showers pene trating the ground to a depth of from three to six inches have visited the extreme northern and western part3 of the county, while the remaining por ing received but .62 of an inch of rain since April 1. Wheat, oats, and barley in rain belt look good, and flax in ground is coming up, while much early wheat is already dead, and late wheat, oats and barley are dying and flax in ground in dry belt has not sprouted. Excellent, warm growing weather and soil is in fine condition. Russian thistles coming thick in dry belt.

Both are located at what was once fondly supposed would be the town of Schmidt, ten miles south of Mandan. Contrary to expectations the town of Schmidt did not materialize to any greater extent tnan the two mentioned buildings. The depot is a frame build ing but of sufficient size to accommo date the business of a town of sev eral hundred people, and also furnish a home for tbe station agent. The building has never been furnished, however. Only a very small part of the elevator machinery has been in stalled. Tberea re two rumors concerning th disposition to be made of the ele vator. One says both will be moved to Nineteen, a village of two or three stores a few miles down tbe track. The other report says the town of JGwyther will get the benefit of the hegira when it takes place. None of tbe land in tbe immediate vicinity of Schmidt has been broken up, although most of it has been bomesteaoed, and there is nothing in sight to warrant the hope that there ever will be a town at Schmidt. A lot of good grazing is going to waste in that vicinity, the growth of grass being Iuxurient, but with a lately acquired respect of the home steader, the cattlemen are keeping their herds off the claims.
