Winter Wheat Yield Greater than Ever Before Known—Spring Wheat Below Expectationa. Western Newspaper Union News Service. Washington.—A loss of 300,000.- )00 bushels of grain, the nation’s greatest farm crop, has resulted from the great damage wrought by drought M»d other conditions since July 1, the government’s agricultural expertß sstimated In their August report. A total production of .2,072,000,000 bush els of corn was predicted. This is 152,000,000 bushels less than last rear’s cop. The general condition of corn was placed at 75.8 per cent of a normal, compared with 86.9 on July 1. Kan sas was hit hardest, the condition there having been reduced from 81 per cent in July to 30 per cent August l. Oklahoma came next with a con dition of 44- against 37 in July, and Nebraska reported 07 against 91 July 1. These three states have almost 19 per cent of the total area planted to corn this year. A bright spot in the monthly grain report were the preliminary statistics showing a production of 511,000,000 .bushels of winter wheat. This is the greatest harvest of wheat ever gathered in the United States, ex ceeding the record crop of 1902 by 10,- 300,000 bushels. The figures exceeded by 28,000,000 the estimate made by the department in July. Spring wheat, too, was given an in creased estimate of production, it be ing 15,000,000 bushels more than the July estimate, the total being placed at 233,000,000 bushels. With the bumper winter wheat crop and a fair ly good spring wheat production, the total harvest. of all wheat is esti mated at 744,000,000 bushels. A crop this size would place the year's pro duction second only to the record crop of 1901, when 748,000,000 bushels were produced. The harvest of white potatoes, it is estimated, will be smaller by 82,000,- 000 bushels than tne crop of 1912. A total of 339,000,000 bushels is esti mated.

NOT A TASK TO BE ENVIED Serving on Englleh Juries Seme Cen turies J-lad Many »and Varied Disadvantages. Not always onviable was the lot of the old time juryman. For there was always the prospect of trouble If the verdict did not gratify the higher pow ers. Thus the failure of a Jury to con vict Sir Nicholas Throckmorton made Queen Mary "ill for three days." and she came out of her sick chamber to fine the disobliging jury (meanwhile confined in prison) the sum of SIO,OOO a bead. Elizabeth followed the same plan, and the practice of fining Eng lish juries did not cease until 1670, when a fine inflicted by the notorious Jeffreys was rescinded on appeal. In some old time "courts of quarter sessions” the injunction to lay their heads together had to be carried out by jurymen in literal fashion. When they began to consider the verdict they were supposed to dive beneath the level of the jury box and remain in that cramped position until a deci sion was reached. Meanwhile, the court usher stood near the box armed with a long wand of willow. If any Juryman ventured to emerge above the surface before the twelve minds were agreed, down came the wand on the head of the offender. ITCHING TERRIBLE ON LIMB R. F. D. No. 3, Clarkfield, Minn.— "My trouble was of long standing. It started with some small red and yel low spots about the size of a pin head on my leg and every morning there was a dry scale on top covering the affected part and when those scales were falling off the itching was more than I could stand at times. The first year I did not mind it so much as it was only itching very badly at times, but the second year it advanced all around my leg and the itching was terrible. I had to be very careful to have my clothing around the affected part very loose. At night time I often happened to scratch the sore in my sleep. Then I had to stand'up, get out of bed and walk the floor till the spell was over. "I bought lots of salves and tried many different kinds of medicine but without any success. I got a cake of Cuticura Soap and a flfty-cent box of Cuticura Ointment and when I had used them I was nearly over the itch ing. But I kept on with the Cuticura Soap for six weeks and the cure was complete." (Signed) S. O. Gorden, Nov. 20, 1912. Cuticura Soap and Ointment sold throughout the world.
