The Miusouristate hoard of agri
culture has just issued its compi led
report of the crop outlook up to July
1st which states that notwithstanding
the drawliacks of June wheat is prov-
ing a grand crop, t rom irs..nal l
servation in other states, and from the
general report received. I judge Mis
souri to be more favored in its wheat
crop than any ot her great wheat grow
ing state. Very general and full re
turns give an estimate ot I3.fi bus-
hels per acre. This gives a total crop
'on 1,840,496 acres of 24.846,696
bushels of wheat of tine quality.
Notwithstanding the decrease of area
for each of the last two years, this is
slightly less than an average total
yield for rive years when the area of
wheat was at its highest point.
Corn is promising much more

A Letter From A Visitor.
Hannibal, Mo., July 7, 186. We
are on our way home. Our visit at
Sedalia was most delightful. We shall
remember itwith great pleasure. Our
former church, its pastor, and all the
good people of Sedalia, greeted us with
a warmth. Of friendly interest we
could scarcely have expected, and of
which we do not feel worthy. We
deeply appreciate all these kind man
ifestations of regard and friendship.
We feel paid for our more than rive
years of labor in Sedalia. We loved
the people, and endeavored to be a
sympathetic friend and faithful minis
ter, but we did not anticipate so kind
and affectionate a remembrance. Our
visit at Sedalia will be a memory we
shall loug cherish. No other place,
or church, or jpeople will ever be so
dear to us. There is a peculiar fas
cination about Sedalia for most per
sons Her people are unusually
frank, genial, cordial, friendly.
when they go elsewhere, their hearts
turn back to their friends audi
neighbors, and the good times thei
had in this goodly prairie town.
