• C hicago , Aug. 15.—The following
crop report will appear in this week’s
issue of the Farmer’s Review: “The
rains dining the week ending Salurdav
week were more general throughout the
corn ls-lt than at any previous time since
early in May, and brought a medium
hope to farmers whose corn fields were
burning and withering.
correspondents, received during the
week, indicate more thoroughly than
ever before that the total average yield
will he seriously reduced, vast areas
having been blighted beyond any power
of resuscitation. Out of ninety counties
in Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois,
Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Neb,aska,
Kansas and Mis,mi1, from which returns
came during tlm week, only eighteen
predicta full average yield; thirty coun
ties indicate not to exceed one-fourth oi
i crop; twenty-six repoit a promise of
three-fourth of an average crop; while
in ten counties corn promises a yield id
not to exceed five to ten bushels an acre
unless for fodder. Tho most discourag-
i ig reports come from Illinois, Iowa,
Wisconsin and Misscnii, while the most
.‘lie i. a.-i-ig still come from Ohio, Miss
issippi, Nielrgan, and Indiana, .’linne-
soto reports contiuue to indicate a fair
average yield in Edgar, while Jasper,
Dewitt and Morgan report a promise of
three-fouiths of an average yield. In
Bond and McHenry count.es one-fouith
of an averageyield is indicated. Through
out Illinois complaints eon'inue. Pas
tures are completely drying up. Late-
planted pastures are generally a failure.
In Iowa, liuiubol.lt county is tho only
one yielding full average. Estimating
by counties reported this week the yield
for tho state at la:go will not exceed .50
to 6 I per cent, of an average. The crop
in D.-catur end Carrol counties is set
down us a failure.
Wheat is threshing
very unevenly, but the grain is gaining
well. The yield ranges from eight to
twenty bushels. Threshing reports
from Dakota show a yield of from five to
eighteen bui'hels. The yield of the ter
ritory will fall con iderab'y short of any
former yearly average.
