THE RICHMOND PALLADIUM AND SUN-TELEGRAM, MONDAY, OCT. 8, 1917
BUMPER CROP OF
CORN IS SEEN IN
Indiana Field Agent Predicts
Biggest and Best in His
tory. INDIANAPOLIS. Oct. S. If no kill
ing frosts appear in Indiana before
Oct. 20. the best and largest corn crop
in the history of the state will mature,
according to the Indiana Crop Sum
mary, issued by George C. Bryant,
Indiana field agent for the Bureau of
Crop Estimates of the United States
Department of Agriculture.
Th8 oats yield Is above normal, but
frost injured the late potato crop,
while cold weather at blossoming time
and blight reduced the applo crop, Mr.
Eryant reports. The Field Agent's
"The weather for September (as
shown by data in the Indianapolis
station of the United States Weather
Bureau) was favorable to nearly all
crops a3 a whole, although the temper
ature, was slightly telow normal. A
killing frost occurred on tho morning
of Hie Hth in the north and east-central
Rectlona of the state, doing con
siderable damage to corn and other
crops in low and muck ground. Pre
cipitation was generally deficient and
a greater portion fell during the first
week. While the soil in tome local
ities is quite dry fall ploying and seed
ing is progressing very satisfactorily.
Llttls in Central.
"High ground corn was damaged but
little, and in the central and south
parts of the state there was practically
no frost damage. The crop as a whole,
however, is from tea to twenty days
late, but will mature one of the best
and largest crops the stftte has ever
produced if no killing frost cccurss be
fcrt Oct. 20th. But little damage has
been reported from insects or storms
and much of the frosted corn has been
saved by putting it into silos.
"The oats yield is considerably
above normal and the quality good al
though some are slightly stained.
"The early crop of potatoes was ex
ceptionally good, hv.t the late crop was
struck by frost in some Factions and
will :iot be as large as anticipated.
"In the dark district the tobacco
crop is one of the best in years. The
hurley crop is not so good however.
Unfavorable weather "and poor plant
reduced the hurley very materially.
"Cold weatfier at blossoming time,
and blight, blotch and coddling moth
have reduced the apple production
"Cold weaJher at blossoming time,
and blight, blotch and coddling moth
have reduced the apple production
very materially. Only the orchards
whore modern methods of spraying
were used will have a marketable
crop thsi year."

not see them.

"Later I heard a whirring noise
something like an aeroplane and I
smelled the odor of gasoline, which I
though was the submarine returning
toward the Belgian Prince to pick up
its four men. When day broke there
were lots of dead bodies of my old
shipmates floating around me.
"Then, about 5 o'clock, as near as I
could judge, I made out the Belgian
Prince and four men coming over its
side. They had been lowering some
stuff off the Belgian Prince into the
boat alongside. I cried out: 'Help,
help,' but they paid no attention to me.
"At this time the submarine came to
the surface about fifty yards from the
Belgian Prince and the four men from
the Belgian Prince approached the sub
marine 'in their boat They hoisted
some stuff out of the rowboat and put
it on board the submarine, and abcut
ten minutes afterward it submerged,
leaving one man in the lifeboat, the
other three having gene on board the
End of the Belgian Prince.
"As the submarine submerged I
heard a great explosion and the Bel
gian Prince broke in two and sank. I
saw a vessel approaching- from a far
distance, and it gradually approached
me. It came 'within a hundred yards
of me, close -to where, . the . Belgian
Prince had sunk. It passed me. pro
ceeded some little distance, turned
around and came back and picked me
up. at wb,lch time I was just commenc
ing to lose consciousness. As soon as
I was revived I made a full statement
of the sinking of the Belgian Prince
and the drowning of its crew to the
captain of the boat that picked me up,
which was a British patrol boat.
"It appears that the man whom I
mentioned as having been left in the
rowboat when the submarine sub
merged was picked up by the British
patrol boat after I became uncon-j
scious. also the chief engineer of the;
Belgian Prince, who had got hold of a!
