car, but not In time to either save the

struck, by a fraction of a second. The
car was wrecked and the batteries
demolished. The engineer saw that
he was about to run down the speeder
and attempted to bring his train to a
stop, but the distance was too short

Largest Crop Ever Produced by
Any Country in the History of the
World Its Effect Has Been to Im
prove Fiiinnclul Conditions.
The greatest crops ever produced
by any one country In the history of
the world Is the estimate placed on
the crop of 1908 In the United States
by Henry Clews, the wizard of Wall
street, and to this enormous crop Is
due the rapid Improvement in the fi
nancial condition of the country.
Mr. Clews says:
Financial conditions continue to
show steady improvement, chiefly ow
ing to favorable crop prospects, easy
money and a more hopeful feeling In
Our financial lenders and captains
of industry are all becoming more and
more optimistic In their opinions. De
pression Is slowly but gradually dis
appearing, and evidence of Improve
ment are visible in the diminishing
number of idle cars. In the somewhat
better orders for steel, in a partial
revival of building, and in a steadier
demand for merchandise In many ' of
the leading markets.
Of course business Is still very
quiet, and In volume much below that
of a year ago. But the fact is true,
nevertheless, that depression is wan
Ing, and that we are fairly started on
the road to recovery, wltfi no prospect
of another panic in sight because of
the thoroughness of recent llqulda
It mav be some time before the
activity of 1907 is regained, but the
recovery should be more rapid than
usual because the country generally 1

The most stimulating element in

condition of the crops has 'correspon
The corn crop this year, according
to present promise will yield 2,700,
000,000 bushels, which at the Septem
ber option price of 62 cents would be
valued at $1,700,000,000. The wheat
crop, with an Indicated yield of 676,-
000,000 bushels at 93 cents per bushel
would amount to $627,000,000.
The ootton crop, which promises
13,000,000 bales at 9 cents, would
yield about $600,000,000. The oat
and hay crops now out of danger,, are
record-breakers In quantity and qual
ity. Last year these two crops were
valued at over $1,000,000,000, and this
year that sum will be further ex
ceeded. All the crops of 1907 were
estimated by the department of ag
riculture at a valuation -of $7,412,
000,000 on the farm; and In view of
the larger yield this year, and the
good prices generally obtained, It is
quite reasonable to expect that our
farmers this year will produce new
wealth worth at least $8,000,000,000;
the largest sum ever realized In one
year by this country or any other
from agricultural products.
