Svokane. Wash., Julv 25. Wheat
threshing Is well under way la the
southern tier of counties In eastern
Washington and the returns to dt?
are highly satisfactory. F. H. Mc
Kay, farm loan Inspector for the Un
ion Trust and Savings bank of Spo
kane, an authority on crop conditions
In the northwest, reports seeing fields
which yielded from more than 35 to 60
bushels to the acre. He thfiik's that 45
bushels will be about the average.
Judging from present market condi
tions, he added, the growers will rea
lize anywhere from "70 to 80 cents a
bushel. Millers say the crop in the 14
counties in the easter part of this
state will be Ta'rger than "the recoi J
yield in 1907, when more than 39,000.
000 bushels Va8 harvested, the aver
age yield for the state being 26 bush
els per acre. It is expected that be
tween 19,000.000 and 20.000.000 bushels
of wheat will be made Into flour In
the Wal mills, the rest being sent to
Pacific coast points. Some of the
grain will be shipped to the central
Btates this year. 1
