of Agriculture says: "The year prom

that basis the crop should not fall below
525,000,000 bushels. Oats are the least
promising ot any cereals, serfage m
rye is little changed, but tho August
condition is better, promising a larger
crop, uariey acreage is apparently mo
largest ever seen, ami mo prepeni condi
tion warrants that the crop will bo con
siderably above the average.''
