Of Normal as of May 22d, According to Commercial Appeal Report Monday. The condition of the cotton crop is 70.1 per, «tont, of normal, according ta reports of average date pf June 22, from correspondents of The Commer cial Appeal throughout the belt This compares with government fig ures of 69.6 per cent, as of May 25, and thowis a gain for the crop, In com parison with these figures, of six tenths of one per cent. The govern ment condition last year at this date was 81.1 per cent, of normal. Owing to overflows along the Mis sissippi River and the plowing up of I some cotton and replanting to corn on account of poor stands of the former, : there is an indicated further slight 'decrease in the acreage over the 3.2 I per cent reported by The Commercial I Appeal in its May 26 report. I The plant has made little growth 'during the past month. Low tempera ; tores have held ( it in check, and along ^he northern rim of the belt some act ual damage i* reported. Many planta in this section are dying from lack of proper root growth. Aa a rule the plant la smell and makes a poor show ing. Blooms are reported almost up to a line even with the southern boun dary of Tennessee, but these represent plants that escaped the cool weather early in May, rather then the average crop. Dry weather has done some damage 1" Taxa., especially in the western portion of the state. In the northern Ipart, however, the plant is holding up well, but needing rain. Rain ia alto needed in Louisiana and portions of I Alabama and Georgia, precipitation having been unevenly distributed in .the latter states, Cultivation aa a rule I« we)l advanc ed. Soil ie In good tilth and field* are clean, and the crop ready to make the .visit the belt for any length of time.
