WEEKLY CROP REPORT,
VXCLE SAJVS WEATHER CLEIt
OX THE FItOSPECTS.
Condition of Cereal and the Small
Crep Throughout Kentucky Up te
Jlendau Evening La at.
The weather conditions of the past
week have, upon the whole, been unfa
vorable te agricultural interests. The in
tensity of the heat was almost without
precedent for this season of the year, the
average maximum of the state for the
week being above 90 degrees. The sky
wus practically cloudless, no rain, except
a few scattered showers, being reported
These conditions have had the effect of
injuring the prospects for all crops which
are still unharvested. While the com
plaints of dreuth arc general in all sec
t ens of the state, the greatest damage ap
pears te have occurred in the Central and
Eastern counties, where, in seme locali
ties, very serious injury has been reperted
The Western sections, especially in the
bottom lands, have suffered only slightly,
and the crops in that portion of the state
will nearly fulfill earlier anticipations,
while in the Eastern and Northern coun
ties it is probable that they will fall short
of the expectation of some weeks age.
The reports received this week regard
ing the effect of weather conditions upon
corn are somewhat conflicting. A ma
jerity of correspondents state that the
late crop is rapidly reaching maturity and
that the outlook was never better, but
many, especially these in the Central and
Eastern districts, report serious injury
from dreuth. The correspondent in
Fayette county states that the early crop
is geed, but that the dreuth has nearly
ruined a large portion of the later corn,
which he states is of peer quality, chaffy
and light. It is believed that this fairly
represents the condition of the crop in
Fayette and contiguous counties Cutting
is progressing rapidly in all sections of
Tobacco cutting is in progress in the
Western portion of the state, and is about
completed in ethor portions. The crop
generally, has net&been seriously affected
by the dreuth, since the greater portion
of it had reached an advanced stage of
growth before the need of rain was begun
te be felt. Reports regarding the crop
are generally faverable, and much of it is
already housed. Seme damage is re
ported from cinch bugs in Cilttenden
Pastures and grasses of all kinds have
suffered severely from the dreuth, and
these upon the uplands are practically
burnt up. The lowland pastures in the
Western portions of the state are still in
fair condition but in all ether sections
they are very peer, and the condition of
stock is'threfere low. Much complaint of
the scarcity of water for stock is made,
and many creeks and springs which Lave
furnished a plentiful supply for many
years are new nearly dry.

A DECISION !
Of Considerable Importance by
the Interior Department.
It is a Change Frem the Fermer De
The llnllng I In Regard te Entry of land,
and Save the Rights of Otit rive Hun
dred Entry Men Near Ashland, Wis.,
Who Ilav Made Final l'roef.
Wasuimoten, Sept. 27. a decision of
considerable importance was Thursday
rendered by the department of the in
terior i and was a change from the
former department rulings. In the
case of Herbert H. Augusta, who made
entry of a quarter section of land near
Ashland, Wis., whose final proof
showed a residence of less than four
teen months after entry as required
by law and who had subse
quently sold the land te ethor
parties, the secretary of the interior
has decided that the entry may be sub
mitted te the beard of equitable adju
dication. This ruling saves the rights
of ever five hundred entry men who
made final proof in accerdance with
the previsions of section 2,301 of the
revised statutes bofero it was se
amended as te require fourteen months'
residence, instead of six months.
