t sr r r, fftt -f ' 3. V ? ' THE CROPS. What the Stato Commissioner of Ag- riculturo Says of tho Outlook. Stato Couimisalonor of Agriculture McDowell in his monthly report saya: "There has been no very material change in tho condition of tho corn crop since my last report. Tho weather has been fine for drying and maturing. Cut ting is progressing well, and wheat sow ing has commenced. In many localities the crop is good, and where it has been shucked for feeding purposes tho yield is fully up to expectations. Tho Govern ment report for September makes a bad showing for corn. A special roport from eight Western States shows that out of an aggregate of 40,873,984 acres planted, there has been abandoned or cut up for fodder in round numbers 15,500,000, or 38 percent. Tho statistician estimates this abandoned area to amount to about 20 per cent, of the entire acreage planted in tho United States. Tho average con dition of corn in Kentucky is placed at 84.2 per cent. "Tho indications are that there will not be a largo crop of wheat sown this fall; the rains camo too late to prepare tho lands for plowing, and the very low price has discouraged the farmer from planting a largo crop. Some are substi tuting barley and others rye. Very much of the present crop is being fed to hogs, which will bo a vast saving to the com crop. I have asked the correspond ents this month as to the average yield per acre this year. Tho average is placed at 14.5 bushels, and all agreo that tho quality is superior, and is placed at 90 per cent.1 "The ryo crop of tho largest producing States shows a very fair crop. The indi cations are that there will be a larger crop raised in Kentucky next year than usual. Tho crop has been so small that it has been difficult to get a very accurate report. The average yield per acre is placed at 14.3 bushels. Tho quality of the grain is placed at 91 per cent. "The average yield per acre of oats is placed at 22.7 bushels. Tho average quality is placed ot 87 per cent. Tho Government' Statistician savs "that as this is tho last roport on tho condition of this crop for the present season, it may be taken as indicating a crop considera bly below tho average." "Tho average yield per acre for barley is 24.2 bushels. There will be a larger acreage of barley sown this year than usual. "Tho early crop of potatoes made a fair yield in most localities, but the late crop very much reduces the average. The average condition of tho crop on October 1st is 70.3 per cent. "The money from the sale of hogs is more generally distributed among tho farmers than that of any other class of atock. I have, therefore, tried to get as full a report from all over the State as possible as to the amount being fed this fall. 'From all reports there will bo a shortage of 15.7 per cent. From tho Government report as to the number of stock hogs to be fed this fall shows a reduction of 10 per cent, as compared to last year. In the Western States where tho drought was most severe, hogs aro being driven to more favored localities for feeding, and pigs aro being very little cared for. The county of Monroe "reports cholera raging among the hogs, and some diseases from other counties aro reported." "I inquired this month as to tho average number of cattle for feeding purposes. A general resume shows that there is a deficit in number of 12 per cent. "Correspondents from nearly every county report wonderful improvement in tobacco in the past six weeks. Tho most improvement has been in tho "white burley" region. Per cont. for white burley, 87. Per cont. for dark to baccs, S9. Tho Modern Mother. Has found that her little ones aro im proved more by tho pleasant laxative, Syrup of Figs, whon in need of tho lax ative effect of a gentle remedy, than by any other, and that it is more acceptable to them.
