ANOTHER WHEAT TALK
BY HYMAN H. COHEN
Definite figures are now available
showing the liberal Increase In the
area of winter wheat planted In the

condition mean an output fully II.

vloue greateet total, aaya it y man II.
Cohen In the Oregon Journal.
Thl means a crop of at leaet ST.
000.000 bushel for the winter wheat
crop alone and with the normal spring
wheal crop would lift the total Pacific
northweat 1111 yield to 14.000.000
While nsturally this would be sn
extreme esllmsto of the probable pro
duction of the coming season, consid
ering the normal depreciation the total
crop should be at leaat 71.000.000
buahol. which would mean far the
greatest actual crop ever harvested.
While It Is true that tho wheat crop
of the Pacific northwest today stand
In a critical condition owing to the al
most general lack of anow covering
over the cold weather, still o far a
private report received by the Jour
nal are concerned, no special damage
Is ss yet reported.
If the normal wheat output per acre
should be gathered in the Pacific
northwest during the coming season
the total value would be lit, 000.000
considering the present outlook for
the price. In point of value therefore,

ing wheat crop of the three states
promises to be a record breaker and
one not likely to be again reached, at
least, for many sessons.

Nicholas, saint of the children,

swirl of the sifted snow sand alashed
at the frosted pane, and the saint of
little children turned to his toys again.
Nicholas, patron of Christmas, haa
laden hie pack with gifts; he hear
the play of the snow sprites piling the
Northern drifts, he hears the clink ot
harness where his reindeer psw the
snow and he answers Mistress Nich
olas, "Yea, It ia time to go." Keen as
a slashing saber the Arctic wind make
