I ESTIMATE OF
Judging from figures published In a
recent Issue of tho Chicago Livestock
World, tho wheat crop of tho middle
and Northwest this year will not fall
below that of last year. That paper
says It Is too early to forecast tho
corn crop. Kansas, Nobrnsltn nnd
other states arc complaining that wot
weather has prov.ented cultivation and
hindered growth, hut thcro Is ample
chance before noxt September to rec
tify this. Forgetting for n mlnuto the
alarm of Kansas and her neighbors,
It may bo said that the farmer of tho
I west is in a ciieerful frame of mind
J 1 over the prospective returns of his
labor. If thcro be any campaign de
pression In business thcro seems lit-
tlo roason why it should originate In
that part of tho country.
I From figures gathered from tho
leading wheat states and territories;
from computations based on tho gov
ernment report of conditions slnco
that time, it is found that he figures
for tho yield this year aro 033,120,000
I bushels, against C37,821,835 produced
last season against G7j,063,OOS bush
els In 1902 and against 718,100,218
bushels In 1301, when all records wero
I Kansas Howls Calamtly. '
Walls of distress aro coming from
Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri nnd parts
of other trans-MlssIslppl states on nc
count of tho recent rains and floods.
It will bo borne In mind that Kansas
was singing a similar mlsorero a year
ago. Its wheat and corn crops had
gono to the bow-wows, accordlngto tho
calamity howlers. The other doy the
bank commissioners of tho state an
nounced that tho hank deposits of
tho state had Increased $12,000,000
during tho year and wore away be
yond the hundred million mark. For a
stato that depends nlmost wholly on
tho soil for Its wealth, thnt Is a pret
ty good proof that ho floods wero not
such disaster-producers, after all, as
tho pessimists bad painted.
Oklahoma wheat, being earlier, was
nearly all out of tho wny .of harm by
tho rains of last week, and unless
there Is a rainfall so persistent as to
rot stack, thcro will be little damago
In that territory. There was so much
wheat plowed up In tho "now coun
try" last spring that it is difficult to
arrive at n satisfactory estimate of
tho total yield. Tho estimates have
been running as high as 40,000,000

Yukon territory heads the list, with
a total of $11,711,907.39 whllo Nome Is

Minnesota and North Dakota.
Minnesota and tho Daltotas expect
t to urinc co,llont to tho farmers of
that region with a total yield of 201.-
000,000 bushels of spring wheat, as
compared with 172,000,uuO bushels a
year ago. Generally' speaking tho con-
dltloiiK In tho Northwest aro moro
satisfactory than they wero a month
ngo, although thcro has been somo re
tardation of growth on account of
cuol wenther. Reports indicate that
the quality of ihe wheat from this fa
mous "granary of tho West" will bo
qulto up to the standard. Minnesota
takes her plnco this year ahead of
Kansas as the premier wheat-producing
stnt.o of tho union. Even North
Dakota has hopes of showing tho
Kansans n few things In tho agricul
Nebraska is timid annul making
guesses because it has been deceived
In other years In the yield at thresh
ing time. Latest estlmntes aro that
tho hnrvcstablo acreage Is about tho
samo as It was last year. Italn and
floods havo caused considerable dam
age, and just now tliero nro sonsn
tjonnl stories of damago by rust. Im
plement men who keep in closo touch
with conditions and havo no specula
tive axes to grind think tho yield will
reach 10,00,000 bushols. Burlington
railroad ofllclals report that wheat
has been damaged, In small localities
only, by rain and flood. Elevator men
agree with Implement men that 40,
000,000 bushels Is a conservative es
timate of tho harvest returns.
