TRAVELER DESCRIBES HIS IM
PRESSION' OF CROP PROS
BEST YIELD IN MANY YEARS
Farmers Are Everywhere Jubilant,
mid Only Aisiiety In -oureity
of Harvest nnd Thresh- - > .;;
Despite occasional reports to the con
trary, travelers say that crop conditions
in Illinois and Wisconsin, and in fact in
every state that goes to make up the
great Middle and Northwest, in their
opinion, are the best they have seen in
With that class of travelers who min
gle daily with the farmer in the sale of
small wares, the "crops Is of necessity
their principal topic of conversation, and
consequently no one is bettter fitted to
talk actual conditions than these drum
Said one of this class yesterday:
"Daily contact with the farmer- and
my own observations have equipped me
With knowledge sufficient to know that,
tin crops this year in Illinois and Wis
consin, and In fact all over the great
Northwest, are- the best this country
has seen In some years.
"Tills condition of affairs Is, as a rule,
general, though there may be some spots
win drought has had the effect of thin
ning the corn. In these places the corn
crop does not stand as high, and the ear
Is baps not quite as large as In other
sections, but the quality, despite these
failings, is good. In these same localities
1 find the small grains also suffering
from stunted growth, but for all this the
heads are well Tilled.
"As you probably know, crops In the
Dakotas this year must be looked on
in the light of a record breaker. This is
no exaggerate statement.
"Waving fields of golden grain greet the
eye for miles. No pen can describe the
sight, which in magnitude and beauty
surpasses anything that an artist his ever
painted. Some of the fields are miles In
extent, and their unbroken surface is a
revelation to the tenderfoot.
"The Dak ot as' are naturally the Mecca
of the harvest hand, and just now he is
an Indispensable article, receiving a daily
wage from $2.50 to $'■!. In some localities
I was told as high as $4 a day was being
paid, though 1 believe this was a little
"The cry for men has drawn thousands
of never-do-wells into the Northwest, and
many of them unblushlngly demand from
*« to $8 before they will work. The re
sult is generally that they are willing
to accept $2.
"With a big crop on hand, the demand
for threshing and harvesting outfits is
heavy, and the agents for the several
companies now entering to that line
of' business are likewise reaping a bar
est. The sale of these machines will
t)<- double that of last year.
'.The general crop prosperity now pre
■'a"ling. ■ while.-putting mon°y into the
lockets of the farmers, cannot but aid
n the future of the g-eat Northwest. It
-leans a decided impetus to immigration
md the populating of sections now bar
•eft In this respect. Then, the railroads
'HI reap a harvest and the country be
:fce better for this present spurt."
