When the first crop of American cor

America with their copy, every one
asked them. "How Jons is If coins to

that question vntil the correspondents
grew tired of declaring that they were
not prophets. Here, it is still the ques

this question with anxious solicitude.
Imagine how solicitously they ask It

The "cafe strategists," now that the
lines have become locked, no longer
pore over niap3 and explain the real
meaning of the latest communique from
Paris. They argue now over the rela
tive importance of offense and defense,
over the Germanic influence in the court
at Petrograd. over the food supply of
Germany, over the possibility that Italy,'
Koumania or even Holland will enter
the fight and all to prove that it will
be a long war or a short war.
In a question so immeasurably com
plicated and so afTected by an uncertain
f'lture. the guess of these cafe strate
gists is perhaps as good as that of the
wisest statesman who walks; yet I will
inote a few sincere opinions, if only to
show the diversity of opinion.

deed, the city seemed much more dis

This. I think, is only human. The

destruction out of the fog from the
unexplored regions of the upper air.
There Is a touch of the supernatural

A0REAGE INCREASE IS BIG

CHICAGO, Slareh 7. (Special.) In
dications point to a wheat crop of
more than 900.000.000 bushels this
year, against 891.000.000 ousneis Har
vested last year. This, if realized, will
make tfifc third consecutive record
The Unit-ed States last year raised
684,990,000 bushels of Winter wheat
and set a new record. It was one of
the best things that ever happened to
this country to have a bumper crop,
as it enabled the united States to feed
all Europe and obtain the highest
prices in years.
40,000,000 Bnxheln F.xprctcd.
This year it is possible to raise' 700,-
000,000 bushels or more of Winter
wheat with-- favorable conditions to
harvest-. This, with a Spring wheat
crop estimated at 240.000,000 bushels,
which is not a hljh figure, will make
the wheat crop reach 940,000,000 bush
els. The wheat crop last Spring was a
poor , one only i'U6,ooo,ouo Dusneis
while in 1913 it was 240.006.000 bushels.
A Winter wheat acreage of 41,263.000,
an increase of 4,132,000 acres, or 11.1
per cent more than was seeded for the
harvest of. 1914 Is the largest ever
known. The plant has come through
the, Winter in unusually good condition
and indications are that there will be
little less in acreage from various
causes lip to harvest.
- Aereage Loss In Small.
The estimate of 700.000.0u0 bushels of
Winter wheat Is based on a loss of
only 263,000 acres up to harvest and a
yield per acre of slightly more than 1
bushels,' or about tv-o bushels an acre
less than' last-year. For Spring wheat,
which is yet to' be seeded, the estimate
is based on an acreage of 18,000,000
acres and a yield of 13 bushels an acre,
or the same as harvested in 1913, when
the crop was 240,000,000 bushels. As
prices are high it is expected that with
an early Spring farmers in the North
west will put In the largest acreages
