E. S. Sweet's Held of Red Russian
wheat, out near Tolo, was threshed
Inst week, giving the remarkable yield
of ti5 bushels to tho measured acre
It Is tho banner yield so far as n
ported this year. When It Is known
that the average wheat ylold for the
whole United Stateo Is only about 17
bush-Jls per acio, It will bo believed
that millions of good farmers have
lived and died without ever having
dreamed of 05 bushel wheat. Frank
Homing's wheat wos only a little be
html Sweet's yield. All the grain In
that section is running five to ten
bushels above tho ostlmated ylold.
A yield of 01 busholH of wheat Is
repoited from the Weber Bros, rnuch,
seven miles noilh of town. The wheat
was of the Little Club variety. A
field of volunteer wheat, self-sown
from what shattered off the crop as
it was harvested last fall, and u
touched by harrow or plow, yielded
22 Vi bushels per acre. A field of vol
untcer wheat belonging to Isaac Zeli
nor. Is suld to havo yielded 30 bushels
to the acre.
Mention was Hindu two weeks ago of
Isaac Zehnor's field of barley, out
near Denver, which yielded 100 hush
els an acre. Nothing better has been
repoited, (hough out around Green
Creek 8ft IiuhIioIb Ih given as an ordi
nary yield. Wheat Is yielding 10
bushels or bettor, and Mux 20 bushels.
The latter is the great cash crop.
