Nearly all of the small crojte have been disposed ot, but there are quite a numher of large crops yet unsold. The price I of whcat hns mndo n Btendy nd vpnee in flour until it is now worth there $9.20, per barrel, with indica tions that it will go to $10 and probably higher. " ji The corn crop in the county, gen erally speaking,' is good, and will make nt least a two-thirds yield in most sections, with some sections f of the county being in bad condition as to corn because of the long drouth which existed for seven -or eight weeks, injuring early corn in its maturity jjind badly damaging the late planting.

' Rains of the past week or ten days have materially affected blue grass .pastures, and there is every chanco for an excellent supply of fall grass and a Iieavy handling of cattle during the fall months. Grass looks real good almost every where. Practically all of the hemp grown in Montgomery county this" year has been cut, and while there, id t good deal pi short, tho largest por tion of the crop is ns good as has ever been grown in the stntp, and promises an excellent yield. There was only a small acreage grown here this past season, but farmers jpeak as if they will produce a much larger acreage in 1917. Those who have the hemp this year are counting on a piice of 10 or 11 cents per short hundred for their crops . For Sale A Bargain. Property is n comer lot, well lo cated, and in good repair.

CAN FOOL NO ONE After discoursing at length on , the beauties of u protective tariff . in his speech at Portland, Ore., Candidate Hughes branded ns a traitor to his country the man who would seek to build up a private fortune nt the public expense. Yea v"erily, but nearly all of tho swol Ipn fortunes are due to the Repub lican theory of a protective tariff, and tho fact that most of the bene ficiaries of the system are putting Reid's"up their ill gotten gains to elect Jlr. Hughes shows that they want a return to it. They are traitors, of course, but as long as humnn nature remains as it is so long will men tnko advantage of a law which ennblos them to enrich themselves at the expense of others. Mr. Hughes does not even fool fools Vy his exhibition of virtue. - For Sale or Rent Good cottage on West Main street. Apply to Miss 3ue Evans, 32 Clay street.
