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

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
of the field was not worth cutting, j
while that in the remainder gave a (
yield of J 1 bushels to the acre. i

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

The society looks with pride up

state especially well adapted to
fruit growing which is not well
suited to general farming.
If all the suitable land in the
