They havo a new crop in Mcdford.
California has long found it Is a par
ing crop. California is constantly
adding equipment to bandlo it. Kla

long enough to giro a little

found it a paying proposition. The
Mall Tribune under tho heading.
"Mcdford Is Prospeous," says of It
Mcdford has enjoyed a sum

Whllo tho rest of tho country
has suffered a devastating de

prosperity, and tborefore has
had to suffer no post war defla
tion. With hundreds of men
employed on irrigation and high
way construction, the labor de
mand has been maintained at a
" "high level throughout' the year.
But probably the most Import
ant reason Is the great Increase
in tourist travel. It is a safe as
sertion that during the past four
months the population of Jack
son county has been Increased at
least ten per cent by transient
travel. There has been a cons
tant stream of automobile tour
ists In and out of tho county,
with an average of 500 visitors
stopping In Medford and its vici
nity every 24 hours.
These tourists have purchased
their supplies here, and conse
quently left their money here.
They save stopped at local
hotels, have stopped at the local ,
auto camp ground, and even at
Crater lake they have drawn up
on Medford, either as campers

this part of the state.
In other words at least half a
million dollars in cash, from tho
ontslde has been dropped In
Southern Oregon this summer.
Not all of this has remained
here, but a large proportion of It
has. Naturally, evory business
has secured a certain portion,
and a healthy business condition
has been the result.
No one can study this situation
(without realizing that the tour

ty's greatest assets. And any
thing that will Increase that
tourist crop, from extending the
Crater lake national park to
improving Medford's auto camp
ground, deserves the hearty sup
port of evory public spirited

WASHINGTON, Sept. S, Pros

oxpoctod during tho first part of
tho current season, show nt tho
present tlmo no cause tor serious
alarm. Estimates of tho quantity
of wheat harvested In SO coun
tries, Including 'tho United Statos,
for 1921, total2.461, 430.000 bush
ols, compared with 2,384,143,000
bushels harvested last year, ac
cording to data compiled by the
bureau of tho markets and .crop
estimates, United States department
Tho 20 countries included In this
cstlmato are tho United States, Can

glum, Bulgaria, Finland, Franco,
Orcece, Hungary, Italy, Spain, Bri
tish India, Japan, Algeria, Tunis,
Union of South Africa, Australia,
and New Zealand. Thcso countries
produced approximately 88 per cont
of the known wheat crop of tho
world during tho years 1903-13,
according' to the annual average
production records of the bureau.
Drought Was Serious Menace

drought throughout tho greater part
of tho northern hemisphoro was a

In many countries ,tho fall-sown

firm hod on the soli and a fairly
vigorous growth before tbo bo

tral Europe will havo larger wheat
crops this year than last, accord
ding to tbo last estimates made by
tho bureau, Belgium and Qreeco be
ing tho only countries In which
smaller'crops aro expected.
Outside of Europe, British India
was most seriously affected by tbo
drought. Tho dryness and tho hot
winds that havo prevailed through
out most of the growing 'season
havo resulted In tho very low yield
of 250,469,000 bushels of wheat, or
about 50,000,000 bushels less than
tho quantity normally consumed in
that country. With the rlco crop
also seriously affected. India Is ex
pected to Import wheat this year
instead of exporting it. In an avor-
ago year before the world war, In
dla exported over 50,000,000 bush
els of -wheat.
in 'Canada tho total yield of
spring wheat is estimated at 273,'
020,000 bushels, of which 264,137.-
000 bushels were grown in Saskat
chewan, Manitoba, and Alberta. Fall
wheat, grown almost exclusively In
Ontario and Alberta, waa estimated
at 15,493,000 bushels. The total
wheat yield of Canada for 1921 is
therefore 288,493,000 bushels, com
