VALUE OF CROPS IN U. S. Fl
GREATEST EVER PRODUCED

Billion Bushels, Aoeording to the C
Washington. - Americas harvests
this year will be the most valuable a
ever produced. With the wheat crop di
exceeding a billion bushels, the larg- ac
est ever produced is one season by as
any nation, and a corn crop which as
also may prove to be the largest ever ta
grown, the government's October crop be
report issued Thursday announoed a
preliminary estimates which indicate a'
record harvests of oats, barley, rye,
sweet potatoes, rice, tobacco and hay. pe
Corn still is king of crops with in- ft
dications of 3,026,159,000 bushels. at
While that is 88,000,000 bushels below in
the record of 1912, the final production tt
may more than make up the - de- a
ficiency. The higher prices this year al
assure the most valuable corn crop tt
ever grown. At prices to farmers pre- sa
vailing October 1. the,corn crop is
worth $2,133,000,000. re
Wheat prospects increased as the P1
growing season progressed so that the o01
,preliminary estimate of production F
was placed at 1.002.029,000 bushels. bi
Wet weather at harvest time, however, w
reduced the quality of winter wheat P
so that much of it will not Be avail- to
able for milling purposes and will ft
have to be used for feed. At prices
prevailing October 1, the farm value ai
of the crop is $910,844,000, consider- I
ably more than ever was paid for a oi
wheat crop before. a
September weather was particularly f
destructive to potatoes, causing a rea
duction of 37 580,000 bushels, or 10 in
per cent, in the forecast of production.
Tobacco also suffered from unfavor
able conditions, which caused a do
crease of 21,619,000 pounds in the pro
Tobacco, however, promises to ex
*sed the record crop of 1909 by 43,000,- t

Oats will exceed the record crop of
1912 by almot -100,000,000 bushels.
Barley will exceed its record by 13,

sad northeast of Marathon, but it has
by far its largest extent south of the
railroad, in which direction it is found
for fully fifteen miles.

FRANCE HAS GIANT
ARMORED BATTLE CRAFT
New Fteet of French Aeroplanes Will
Carry Twelve Men, One 3-Inch Gun,
Maokine Guns and Torpedoes.
Paris.-An aerial army is no longer
a dream. Such an army, formed in
divisions and squadrons with battle
aeroplanes, cruiser aeroplanes, scouts
and torpedo planes all armed heavily
and carrying three-inch cannon and
rapid-fire guns, is a reality. It has
been made possible through the re
I markable development of military
aviation tn France.
The French government this week
permitted foreign correspondents the
first inspection of its new fleet of
aeroplanes. Opportunity was given to
v inspect the large and small types of
n the new battle planes and watch them be
as they were maneuverini high in the ha
r air, firing round after round from en
p their three-inch rifles, while they e
soared, looped and darted about. an
Entering the aviation field the cor
respondents saw a monster battle al
e plane thirty feet high with a number
of planes stretching 130 feet across. go
a Further back was ranged the fleet of let
battle crisers and scout planes. They m,
were formed like a battalion, twenty ne
t planes in a row across the front and .
. ten deep. Their huge wings made a Ias
I1 front half a mile wide. a
s Each squadron will consist of nine =
e aeroplanes of all types, including one pe
battle plane, two battle cruisers and r1
Ssix scout planes. The oomplement for tw
a squadron will be upward of fifty of- Cc
ficers and men for the operation of the
. aeroplanes and their transportation
0 on lorries drawn by automobiles with
which each squadron will be equipped.
a A Naval Laboratory Proposed.
SWashington.-Organisatlon of the
navy's new civilian advisory board
Thursday with Thomas A. Edison as
chairman was followed by the adop
tion of a resolution proposing estab
lishment of a great research and ex
A perimental laboratory to cost about
e $5,000,000. It is probable the pro
* posal will be included by Secretary
'y Daniels in his estimates to be sent to
congress this winter.
