Wiibreas It has pleased Al
mighty God to take from our num
ber our beloved friend and
Jon Austin Peay to the happy
hunting ground beyond the river
Resolvki That in the death of
our companion that the club has
Sustained a loss that js irreparable
TJhat he was a man of upright
character of unswerving truth and
integrity that we can truthfully
Vay that he was a Christian gentle
man which is the highest enco
mium that can be passed on man
that we greatly deplore his separa
tion from our midst
-Austin Peay joined our hunting
cjub in November 18G9 and from
tjiattlme until his death he never
failed to join us in ouryearly hunts
When others were uncertain as to
whether they would go or not we
always knew where to place him
His record is unbroken He was
always ready to do his part in
every thin- He was ever ready to
extend the hand of sympathy and
Help to the destrcssed and needy
He was our recording secretary
He wrote up oun hunts and had
Uiem published in our county pa-
pers No one eyer - started to read
one of his pieces and laid it down
before finishing it He was a beau
tiful writer full of wit and humor
and frequently rose to the sublime
Tt was always pleasant to hear his
descriptions of the achievements
successes and failures 6f different
members How often have we sat
around the camp fire and talked
of the days sport and of the times
that were passed and gone But
alas we shall never have that
pleasure again We shall miss his
genial pleasant face when we meet
for our usual fall hunt and our
hearts will be sad to think that we
will never more meet again in this
- world but we hope to meet on the
jXjther shore and clasp hands there
never to be separated more
There are but four of the original
members of our club that are left on
this side namely Capt S R
White J K Caudle J S Parrish
and L McCombs The others have
crosfeed over and we too will soon
meet on the other side
Rksoivkd That we extend to
his beloved wife and children our
heartfelt sympathy in their great
That these resolutions be spread
Upon the records of our club and a
copy be sent to his family

Condition of Crops August 1st
Reports from 153 Correspondents
In 103 Counties of the
For the August report replies are
received from 152 correspondents
representing 103 counties
Threshing has progressed favor
ably throughout the wheat belt
during July and the result in vari
ous States may be epitomized as fol
lows Ohio has a fair yield of
wheat of agood quality Michigan
the yield and quality are both ex
cellent Indiana has a light yield
with quality good Illinois with
the exception of the southern sec
tion and a few counties in the north
east the yield and quality both
poor Wisconsin the yield and
quality both satisfactory Iowa
the yield and quality both better
than was anticipated one month
ago Nebraska the crop varies
widely in several sections of the
State and will average rather be
low than above the medium as to
yield Kansas and Missouri the
crop failed to come up to the very
poor prospects of July 1st Much
of the acreage remained uncut and
of that which was harvested a
large per cert proved unmerchant
Spring wheat prospects have im
proved inasmuch as the threatened
injury from rust did not occur to the
extent anticipated
In Kentucky the month of July
has been favorable to threshing
with the exception of last week of
the month when frequent Rhowcrs
put a stop to further progress
Much less than the usual amount
has been threshed to date due to
farmers having their crop in stack
and preferring to hold it in that
The question has yield equalled
expectations resulted in 76 replies
in the affirmative and 67 in the
negative In 1897 the same ques
tion elicited 100 answers in the
affirmative and 11 in the negative
To the question on quality 64 cor
respondents set it down as good
59 as average and 18 report it
bad In 1897 110 correspondents
reported quality good 5 an
average and no reports of bad
quality were received
On the subject of free marketing
of the crop 18 correspondents say it
is being sold as threshed and 124
say it is being hejd for higher
The average price for No 2
wheat August 1st was 68c In
1897 the prices at the same date
