VIRGINIA FARMERS
Who Are Engaged in Har?
vesting Corn, Tobacco,
Hay, Potatoes and Apples
Under Favorable Condi?
tions
The past two weeks has been a
very busy period for Virginia farm?
ers, who have been engaged in har?
vesting corn, tobacco, hay, sweet
potatoes and apples under favorable
weather conditions, according to the
Virginia I'rop Reporting Service.
The corn crop has been maturing
quite rapidly and already a consid?
erable part of the early crop has
been cut. The yield is generally
very good, although not quite as
heavy as was expected a month ago.
.Most of the tobacco crop has now
been harvested. The weather has
been unfavorable (or barn Cll.'ing
and some damage has been repotted.
The crop is generally one of the best
ever grown both in quality ami
quantity.
In the Valley and Southwest land
has been prepared for seeding when;,
although none will be sown for sev?
eral weeks until cold weather will
decrease the chance of damage from
Hessian By,
The late white potato crop has im?
proved in some sections, and the
yield will probably be up to the av?
erage. The sweet potato crop is
turning out fairly well and is stead?
ily moving to market, 1,500 ears
having been shipped to September 0,
compared with 1,280 cars to the
same date last year.
The season has been very favor?
able for harvesting the large hay
ciops of COWpcas, soybeans, ami fall
grasses, pastuies are generally very
good.
There has been some little im?
provement noted in the peanut crop,
lint it is too late for any material
chance to be made in yield,which will
be less than usual.
Excellent progress has been made
in harvesting the commercial apple
crop, which is now estimated to he
'.?'.iL',(Ulli barrels of which there in
approximately 307,000 barrels of
Yorks, 228,000 barrels of Pippins,
170,000 barrels of Wine'saps, 57,000
barrels of Hell Mavis, 20,000 barrels
of Slnymnns, 10,000 barrels of
lilaek Twigs ami $9,000 barrels of
other varieties such as Hominis,
Grimes, Jonahtans, Home Beauties,
etc. Few sales have been made at
the prices offered, so a large pari of
the crop is being stored by the grow
l.ivcstock is generally reported to
be in good condition, although there
is some complaint tlmt cattle have
not fattened iuT> well as usual. In
some sections there is considerable
demand for sheep.

AUTOISTS MORE
CAREFUL AT
RAILWAY CROSSINGS
Louisville, Ky., Sept. 24.?That
drivers of automobiles are becoming
more careful is borne out by a re?
cent check made in Kentucky by the
Safety Department of the Southern
Kail way System.
Ajt three different crossings on
the Dixie Highway, observations
were made last month with the fol?
lowing practices noticed:
Number of vehicles passing ov?
er crossings . 9?7
Number stopped before cross?
ing tracks . 221
Number where driver looked in
one direction . 36-1
Number where driver looked in
both directions . 566
Number where driver crossed
without taking any precau?
tions . 68
Number crossed at speed ex?
ceeding twenty miles per
hour . 28
This check discloses that one driv?
er out of every four actually stop?
ped to make sure that no trains
were approaching before crossing
the tracks, 57 per cent, looked in
both directions ami 117 pet cent look?
ed in one direction before crossing
tracks, while only ti per cent, failed
to consider care at crossings and
crossed without taking any precau?
tion whatever.
"It takes very little of one's time
to make sure that no trains are ap
preaching before crossing rnilroad
tracks," says a statement issued by
the Southern, "and it is hoped thnt
you, Mr. Autoist, will ever hear in
mind that the warning that is dis?
played throughout the country,
'Cross Cautiously,' and never be list?
ed as crossing tracks without taking
due thought of the danger. It is by
far the wiser to be careful than to
ignore any of*the many precautions
necessary."
