Recent Storms Damage Fields in Indiana Progress in Threshing. A summary of weather and crop conditions in Indiana, aa ?ivon by J. If. Armir.gtou, of the state weather oureati. follows: Tempera tures were about normal during the first part of the week, and some what below at the end, with mod erately warm weather intervening. Th temperature ranged from 90 degrees or higher at several stations on Saturday afternoon to readings in the forties at several stations on TiK'sday morning. Thunder show ers occurred quite generally on Wednesday, and again on Sunday. The amounts were- rather light in northern sections, but over the re mainder of the state the rainfall was, as a rule, sufficient Some damage was done t crops and buildings by wind which attended Sunday's thunder shower In and about Marion county. Corn was further genefnlly improved by rain, particularly In the southern and central sections of the state, where Its condition is now regarded as generally koJ, but over most of the northern part of the state it is still too dry. and the conditions of the crop there, as i rule, range from poor to only fair. Soiim Com a l'ailur. There are a number of fields in various parts of the state where corn is a complete failure as a re sult of continued dry weather. A i o n si it e fa nl e part or tne crop is made in the .'oiithcrn counties, but it is not so well advanced farther north. !ood progress was made with loth threshing and plowing". but the soil is still too dry in some .limited areas for plowing.

Aug. 2 9. Two hundred and fifty pounds of acid phosphate to the acre meant the difference between a profitable yield of wheat and complete failure on the farm of Newton Myers in Mal rison township, Knox county. Mr. Myers cooperating in a dem onstration with County Agent Pig gott. applied this amount of fertil izer on all of his wheat ground last fall except a small triangle in the enter of the field, which was not covered because the supply of fer tilizer was exhausted just as he got to the center of the field. This vear the wheat in the center I 1 of the field was not worth cutting, j while that in the remainder gave a ( yield of J 1 bushels to the acre. i "I won't leave a check strip next ; time. I have had enough demon strating to sa'tisfy myself and am 1 going to see that I have plenty of acid phosphate before I start sowing wheat this fall," is the Myers ulti- ! malum.

The ninth Indiana apple show will be held Nov. 1 to 7 In Tomlir. son hall. Indianapolls. Plans f c r the show are being rapidly matured. Indiana will not have a bumper crop of apples this fall but there is plenty to make a creditable show and the quality is above the aver age. As a result of these annual shows the orchard acreage in the state has been greatly increased and the large number of these new er plantings which are now coming into bearing will add materially to the commercial crop of Indiana apples. Adaptable I "or I'm it. The society looks with pride up on its accomplishments. but real izes that the work is not yet com plete. There is a large area in the state especially well adapted to fruit growing which is not well suited to general farming. If all the suitable land in the state were planted to fruit and properly cared for Indiana would stand at the head of the fruit grow- ing sections of the union, is the opinion f II. II.
