Washington, Oct. 9. Never beforo have
the great cereal crops of the United
Slates been so bountiful as those of this
year. Renirds of production for almost
every ceteal have been surpassed, in
some instances by millions of bushels.
The October crop report of the de
partment "f agriculture, Issued to-day,
shows spring wheat, oats, barley, rye
anil hay all have exceeded the bust rec
ord productions while the crop of corn
and potatoes from present Indications
also will lie the grentebt ever yet har
vested. Speaking of this great showing made
by the country's farmers, James Wilson,
.secretary of agriculture, to-day said:
Tho crops are tho heaviest on record.
The season has been favorable but somo
credit is duo to tho wide efforts made In
late years by tho federal government and
the State to help farmers throughout the
country to get better returns from tho
average acre.
The features of the report aro the
enormous harvest of corn, oats and the
spring wheat. More than three millions
of bushel-i of corn, almost a billion and
a half bushels of oats and three hundred
and thirty millions of bushels of spring
wheat have been grown. The States in
the Northwest are harvesting the great
est crops ever grown there.
In North Dakota 1 I6.&92.000 bushels of
spring wheat, the greatest spring wheat
harvest ever grown by any State, was
produced. The yield per acre there was
Increased from eight bushels last year
to IS bushels this year.
Iowa, with lUU.TS'i.OiiO bushels; Illinois
witli 182,726,000 bushels; Minnesota with
122,032,000 bushels and North Dakota with
96,138,000 bushels were the principal oat
producers. In each of these States the
yield per aero this year was almost
double last year's yield.
'It looks as If we won't have to Im
port any potatoes this year," said Sec
retary' Wilson in commenting on the rec
ord potato crop. Indications are that the
farmers will have lOs.OOO.OO bushels more
potatoes this year than lost when, by
reason of tho short crop, large quanti
ties were Imported from Europe.

It was nearly one o'clock when tho

burgh dock. There they were met by
Colonel Calvin D. Cowles of the Fifth
Infantry, one battnllon of his command,
nnd the regimental bund. Escorted by
this force, the Ancient Honorables
marched up through the town. Tho ap
pearance of the Infantrymen on their
way to the dock had moused tho Inter
est of the Inhabitants, and the report
got around that something cxtiaoidlnnry
was In the air, so consequently there
wns a ctowd of good size all along the
