COTTON BEING DAMAGED.
Rust Has Damaged Crop About
25 per Cent.
Reports from several sections
of the hill parishes are to the
effect that rust is playing havoc
with the cotton crop, the yield
already damaged at least 25 per
cent. In nearly every section in
Winn parish the -crop has been
damaged. and reports from Jack
son, Bienville and Grant say that
the crop there is being danmaged.
The crop has been opening
rapidly during the dry weather
and the rust has stopped the
growth, which will cut off a
cojnsiderable portion of the crop.
It is the opinion of many farmers
that the "top crop" will amount
to very little this year on account
of rust and the dry weather
which has prevailed up until the
past week. It is thought that
what crop is made w~ be gathered
by the first of Nove.ber.
