The outlook In California now Is for a
vmHller yield than last year. f
'allfornlH letters NOtil ad yesterday said
tin- hnps in the Sacramento section are
blooming already and for this reason the
ywnwri ftar the crop will be short. The
8Rin early bloom occurred a few years ago
and was followed by a small harvest. The
Sacra men to News, of June I. says :
"Inspection of some f the yards show
that the advance vines are goitiK into the
flower on aims not' over six Inches long.
This condition exists on seemingly healthy
vines which have not yet reached the wire.
s soon as th arms begin to flower they
top grow ing. TTtisually. however, they at -tain
a Rrowth of two or three feet. As this
Is part of the vine that bears the crop,
short arms naturally indicate a short yield.
"Just what the muse of this particular
rendition Is hop men arc puzxied to know.
Stood V. Flint, a well -known grower and
dealer attributes it to the dry season. Al
though the vinos appear to be In" good con
dition they apparently have not had cnouffh
water at the proper timen and will not yield
a normal crop. Even In districts where the
hops hi ve been Irrigated, the condition Is
noticeable and It Ih believed that all yards
will suffer, excel) t possibly lhse. that were
Irrigated as early as January and February,
when there were several weeks of rainless
Weather. 'This seems to be an off year for
hepaV said Mr. Flint. 'The yild will be what
Is know ii as a "bottom" crop. Instead of a
"top ' crop, that la. the yield will be on
the lower part of the vine. A similar con
dition to thts existed several seasons ago,
and as a result, the crop was light. The
stnd f hops in this county Is good and
i there are but few missing hills, but the
tot a yield wlll be below normal.
" Reports from Sonoma County, where
there m re ma ny hop yards, are to the ef
fect that the outlook Is uneertaln because

An MkullMftwttt class is to be a novel
l'eature of the religious department ac
tivities this Summer at the Young
Men's Christian Association. For ' some
time R. R. Perkins, the director, has
been, wantlnc a permanent set of
charts and maps to Uafe in Bible study
classes and he has concluded that the
best wey to obtain them la to organize
a class to make them.
The ne-w class, which is to start
within the next few- days, will contain
crtists and others who have technical
iibi.ity that will be useful in oreoarinz
I exhibits wanted. The class is to In
clude several Sunday school superin
tendents who will assist in outlining;
1 the work.
we nope to kill two birds with one
stone by maintaining this class." said
Mr. Perkins. "While the exhibits will
be of permanent value their prepara
tion will involve considerable Bible
study that necessarily will be conduct
ed along new lines. Blueprints of all
charts and map made will be supplied
to Sunday schools and other organiza
tions that wish to iws them."
It is probable that members of a
Bible elub that has been conducted by
M. E. Snedccor will join the equipment
lass la a body. They met last night
at the residence of Mr. ?nd Mrs. Per
kins and considered the plan.

wheat today for prompt shipments out of

1,'h3c up; oats down a shade to c
and provisions increased in cost 2 i ' Be
Bullish sentiment In wheat was further
Ided by grairr" dealers estimating the Kan
sas harvest as low as 70.000,000 bushels
and reducing the Oklahoma forecast to
15.000.000 bushels. Stock market weakness
had a deDressina effect on wheat prices
at the outset and was again influential near
tne close. Taxing tne a ay as a wnoie,
however, the bulls had the advantage.
Esoort clearances of wheat and flour were
liberal, being equal to S&9.00O bushels. Pri
mary receipts or wneat were i.sj.uuu ousneis.

Rural offerings of corn were not equal

Big consignments weakened oats.
