Total Yield In Oklahoma le Worth Thousand» of Dollars. Oklahoma City.—Although planting of peanuts has been delayed to some extent by the heavy rains, the reports that are received from many sections of the state where peanuts arc being grown are highly encouraging, and it is expected that the total yield this year will be greater than that of last year by half. The soil throughout the state is in such excellent condition that there will be a great amount of late planting, which will make splendid yields, and in sections of the state where cotton and other crops have been seriously damaged by the heavy rains, and where replanting of those crops is likely to prove a losing venture, It has been suggested that peanuts be plant ed. a* they will thrive in weather con ditions that would prove detrimental to other crops. v.-t tit !_ -r- 1 -SI" ""-V Suits, Coats and Cape-coats owe their popularity to their destinctive style and pleasing price. our fv.il line of vut CIM-W here.
