WEST VIROINIA STRIKE ENDS.

mineis from all the coal fields along
the Norfolk & Western railroad hero
today, it was unanimously agreed to
end tho strike provided the operators
would tako bacx all tho old miners,
and they have signified their intention
of doing this. The miners havo agreed
to return to work next Monday. It is
reported that President Mitchell of the
United JMineworkers advised the strlk
ers to return to work. He realized that
winter was near at hand and. that the
miners in this field could not hold out
much longer, as almost every one was
dependont on the union for 'cxxl and
clothing. It is thought the strikers at
tho New River and Kanawha fields
will soon follow today's action.

AN IMMENSE CROP

Production Is Estimated nt 3,580,951,000
llushcls This Year, or More Than the
Entire Corn Crop of the World Last
Year llnncst Will Last Till the Snow
IHca-llood Price Assured.
Washington, Sept. H. In thu history
of the cereal production there has never
boon such itn enormous crop 'ol corn as
Is being gathorod In tho United States
this year. It will aggregate 2,689,.
951,000 IhuIioIk, or morn than tho
outlro torn crop ol the world .for 1001.
Tho corn raised In tho United States
will bo sulllciont to supply Iho needs ot
tho world for this and nuxt year, oton
should there bo n total failure In 1903,
says tho Now York Sun.
Corn harvesting Is now In progress In
tho United States, and not until snow
tiles In December will this enormous
task lw ended. Even then farmers
further South will not havo finished
husking tho golden oars standing I
their fields ot brown. They know
it mnkea littlo difference so far
prices nio concerned. A record ol
sales ot corn In tho pnxt 10 rears
shows that tl.o hlgbost prices aro ob
tained In late tall and wlntor, and that
prices are 25 per cent below tho aor-
ago immediately alter tho gathering ol
tho crop begins In thu early autumn,
Last year tlio corn burned as it stood
ripening in tho fields just a few week
before it had matured, but this season
thoro have been no droughts in tho corn
section. Nor havo there been any
uoods 01 n general nature. Iho weath
er, in faul, has lieon Ideal far corn
growing. Tho stalks hate grown rank
tho ears havo spread and lengthened
until ll'.lucli earn anil 16-foot stalk
are not uncommon in tho com belts
Tho crop of 1901 fell short of tho ex
poctud yield bj 40 iier cent. This yes
it goes ahead of the predicted yield by
10 or 16 iior cent. Eiuht states last
year did not raleo enough corn for homo
consumption. Tho exports fell short
8,000,000 buthcls. The yield was only
10 bushels to the acre, and 4,000,000
acres wero not cut at all. In 1890 th
average yield was 28 bushels to tho
ncro, except in Kansas, where It was
40 bushels. Kansas last year averaged
10 bushels or less to tho acre. Thu
ucreagu of corn this year Is much larger
than last. It Is 3 ior cent more or
10.,809,928 acres. This largo acreage
la duo to tho lact that three and one-
half million acres of wheat, sown thn
precceding fall, had been frozen out
and wero ploughed up for corn. Con
fvqucntly, thorn 3,000,000 acres, which
are largely in Kansas, Nebraska and
Iowa, will not yield their ownors much
profit, if any. The cost ol the wheat
ploughed up was $0 au acre, and tho
cost of the corn $5. The yield must
therefore, lie ubovu 30 bushels and
yield 40 cents a bushel to profit at all
This is lmpro!ab!o. So 3 per cent ol
tho corn crop will yield nothing above
tho expenso ot sowing and gathering it,
Tho principal corn states are those ol
the Mlddlo and Central states. The
summers aro too long for good corn
production In the South, and It is too
droughty in the far Southwest for cer
tain yields. Illinois is the leading
corn stato, but Kansas, Iowa, Indiana
.Missouri and Iteuraska aro big corn
