The prolonged and excessive wet weather throughout May has retard ed the planting of crops. With twenty-two days of rain in May prep aration of the soil for the planting of crops has been next to impossible. Wheat is somewhat damaged and not as high a yield is expected as the early conditions warranted. How ever, the condition as a State aver age is 94 per cent, which is 5 per cent less than this time last year. Rye shows up somewhat better with a condition of 97 per cent as com pared with 99 per cent in 1918. Bar ley is an exceptionally small crop in this State and but few reports are made on same. Condition is given at 95 per cent. Anticipated acreage of corn is .given at 98 per cent.

Grasses show up well: Bluegrass, 96 per cent. Clover, 93 per cent. Orchard grass, 93 per cent. Alfalfa, 92 per cent. First cutting of alfalfa has made a fair yield. The general outlook for yield of hay is given at 84 per cent. Expect ed acreage of soy beans is 90 per cent, while that of cow peas is 83 per cent. Livestock shows in good condition, the same being 97 per cent of normal, while poultry only shows at 80 per cent.

There seems to have been little trou ble in the past in naming battles, al though even Waterloo is called Quatre Bras by the French. But on the whole a name seems to have ''attached it self to a battle quite naturally, like Blenheim,. Talavera, Jena, Leipzig, the Nile and Trafalgar. But In the great war, where a bat tle extended over weeks of time over a forty-mile front, including many vil lages, and sometimes several objec tives In the shape of big towns, the difficulty of naming a battle with a name that Is universally recognized Is extreme. The names which .have actually set tled down completely and taken their places in history are the battle of the Marne, the two battles of Ypres, the battle of Verdun, the battle of the Bight, the battle of Jutland, the bat tle of the Somme, and that seems al most all. The battles of the later phasesof the war have hardly settled down to a name yet. Probably the battle in which the Vimy ridge was stormed will be known as Arras; but the bat tle of Messines will probably be a sticker, just as the Chemin des Dames will live in French annals for all times. Perhaps the great battle which at the time seemed disastrous to British arras, commencing on March 21, 1918, will go down to history as the battle of Amiens, while the battle of Cam bral may stand for all that heroic re covery which brought the British to their final victory. ground as of June 1st was 75 per cent. It is estimated that 51 per cent of planting of corn has been completed, but some ground remains yet unbroken. Condition of growing corn is 72 per cent. Some replanting of early corn will be necessary in many localities. Oats acreage is estimated at 91 per cent, which is 6 per cent lower than last year, while condition is shown at 95 per cent. Hemp acreage has fallen low with practically only about one-tenth of reports coming in Apples, 51 per cent. Peaches, 54 per cent. Pears, 48 per cent. Plums, 59 per cent. Grapes, 65 per cent. Blackberries, 101 per cent. Only about 67 per cent of a straw berry crop was reported.

Fed Up With Conversation Relating to the Epidemic. L. B. Andrus of- Grand Rapids, Mich., chief of the Merchants Heat and Light company, is laboring un der the impression that some "Hoosier jinx" was trailing him Wednesday eve uing. While taking dinner at a hotel he was surrounded by delegates to the casket manufacturers' convention. After hearing them discuss their busi ness, which discussion naturally had many references to the influenza epi demic, he concluded It was no place for him. As the evening roHed on, he began debating with himself the question whether the epidemic was going to get him, so he decided to take n Turkish bath. He had only been there a short time when a sick-looking individual came in, and in a conversation with Mr. Andrus said that he had only re cently got over. a severe case of the influenza, and he had been advised that a Turkish bath .would get the poi son out of his system and assist him to recover more rapidly. When he was talking with this man. another man came in sneezing and coughing and inquired of Mr. Andrus whether he thought a Turkish bath would prevent a fellow from getting a bad case of the influenza. By this time Andrus said to the at tendant: "Get me out of here as, quickly as possible. I have given about as much time as I care to pre siding at the flu conference in In dianapolis." Indianapolis News. SUMMER RESORT. Boys from Paris will be invited to ! a reserve Officers' Training Camp on Lake Michigan this summer. The en campment has been named Camp Roosevelt, as a living memorial to the dead statesman, and 15,000 men and boys will be given a period of in tensive military-physical-educational J training there between July 6 and August 31. Captain F. L. Beals of the United States Army will be the commanding officer. ' Camp Roosevelt is being establish ed at Muskegon, Michigan, as a train ing place for the Chicago High School boys who are in the Reserve Officers' Training Corps, but it is not necessary to be from Chicago or to have had previous military training to be a Camp Roosevelter. It will be an all-age, ail-American camo. open to recruits between the ages of 12 and 45. The military training will include drills, machine gun. practice, ground aviation, radio instruction and other military features. The physical train ing will include calisthenics, 'base ball, tennis, golf, swimming, rowing ana hiking. The educational train ing will will be under the direction of Chicago High School subjects. This feature is optional with the re cruit. Camp Rosevelt is not a profit-making institution. It is being financed by a committee of patriotic Chicago citizens who believe that it may pave the way to a program of national preparedness at all times. The charge, as far as the recruit is concerned, is only $1.00 per day to cover subsist ence and equipment, instruction and a tent to sleep in. Recruits can ar range for two, four, six or eight weeks of training as desired. Camp Rosevelt will be under strict military discipline and the command ing officers will have complete charge of all added features of training. so many inquiries are coming in regarding the' camp that it has be come necessary to establish executive headquarters at 21 N. La Salle street, Chicago, from which full information may be secured upon request. MiiMiwHix i i'i i-HimiimiimiiH . .14 Juv1 , .fit" , 5 The 1 T. Hinton Co. UNDERTAKERS AND EMBALMBRS Paris Ky.

Quite a while ago an author, Edgar Allan Poe, contributed a story to Gra ham's Library of Fiction, No. 1. But it hardly occurred to him that some day a collector would pick up an old copy of that periodical for 25 cents and presently sell it to somebody else for $1,000. Probably it is just as well that it did not, for the knowledge might have discontented him with his own modest emolument for writing a classic. 1 A SAFE INVESTMENT TO YIELD 6.60 GENERAL MOTORS CORPORATION 6 CUMULATIVE DEBENTURE STOCK Par Value if S&ares, $100 Gallalli at $115 atr Slian and Accrue DMdini DIVIDEND QUARTERLY FEBRUARY, MAY, AUGUST AND NOVEMBER The principal products of the General Motors Corporation are: AUTOMOBILES Cadillac, Buick, Chevrolet, Oakland, Oldsmobile, Scripp-Booth.

CATARRHAL DEAFNESS CANNOT BE CURED By local application, as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure catarrhal deafness, and that is by a constitutional remedy. Catarrhal deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have-a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed, deafness is the result. Unless the inflammation can be re duced and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever. Many case3 of deafness are caused by catarrh which is an inflamed condition of the mu cous surfaces. Hall's Catarrh Medi cine acts through the blood on the mucous surfaces of the system. We will give one hundred dollars for any case of Catarrh Deafness that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Medicine. Circulars free. All Drug gists, 75 c. F. J.
