A real family ticket will be issued
by the Celina Chautauqua ibis season

Family tickets will admit all child
ren eighteen years old and younger.
The family tickets will not be sold
after the Chautauqua begins, however,
and to take advantage of this oiler
tickets must be bought before July 23,
as after that date the' extra work in
adjusting matters relating to family
tickets will be Impossible, as each
member of the family gets a separate
ticket and must sign his individual
ticket. Bear in mind that family
tickets will not be on sale after July
23. Better got them right now.
Water Pageant Has 'Em Going
A number of the Chautauqua campers
began to camp this week. It not gen
erally known the Chautauqua manage
ment will make no extra charge of the
tents for an extra time if any desire to
move onto the grounds at once.
It grows apparent that the water
pageant is going to be one of the big
features of the Chautauqua.
A score of entries have already been
made for the night illuminated pageant
apd a good deal of interest is being
taken in the swimming and boat races.
This is the first time that any thing
of the sort has been attempted and this
feature will be widely advertised and
beyond question will prove a great
drawing card in this whole section of
the country.
Patrons of the Chautauqua should
note that family tickets will be sold
admitting parents and all children
eighteen years old ami younger for S3,
but no tickets will be sold after the
Chautauqua opens.
'Twlxt optimist and pessimist
The difference Is droll;
The optimist sees the daughnut
The pessimist sees the whole.
Wheat Is fair; oats fine crop;
Corn sure will be on top.
The following review Is based on the
official report of the Ohio Department
of Agriculture of July 1:
Wheat shows the same prospective
yield for the State as a whole as esti
mated one month ago, namely, (13 per
cent of a standard computed upon a
basis of 15 bushels per acre being stan
dard represented by 100 per cent. The
present report shows that 2 per cent of
the original area seeded to wheat last
fall was plowed op In the Spring, hence
the total production for the 1010 harvest
shows a decline of 532,170 bushels In
comparison with the estimated prod no
lion of last month. From returns re
celved from ll.'iKolllclal correspondent
of this Department, we now estimate
that for the present harvest there re
mains I,s2,h7l and this should pro
duce an average of 14 bushels per acre
or 2.-M7U, IIKS bushels for the State as
whole. The estimated production of
wheat from the harvest of lilOO was
27,3,r).ri,M2 bushels, an average prod no
tlon of 1(1 bushels per acre. The dam
age to the crop by joint worm Is not as
serious as earlier predicted, being es
timatud at but II per cent for the Ntate,
In some counties the dnmagee is quite
serious, but In a malorlty of the coun
ties It Is of no consequence. The liar
vest will soon be In full blast, when the
quality of the crop can be definitely
The prospect for oats Is now estimated
at 101 per cent., based upon a standard
of 100 percent representing a production
of 30 bushels per acre. From preien
prospect, the harvest should produce
approximately 4H,"71,J)l;i bushels.
Corn has made remarkable growth
during past few weeks, and while one
month ago the outlook was very un
promising, its present condition is
most encouraging and should weather
conditions conditions continue favor
able the harvest should be moit boun
tiful. The estimated area planted to
corn is 3, mil), 11.) acres, being Oil per
cent of the area of 1 !)(!, as returned by
township assessors and an increase oi
130,301 acres in comparison with the
estimated area reported at this time
last year. Its present growing condi
tion Is estimated at 83 per cent com
pared with an average. The damage
by cut worms Is estimated at 0 per cent,
damage by grub worms 2 per cent.
The area planted to potatoes Is esti
mated at 17 per cent in comparison
with the area of l'.K)!), as reported by
