California is constantly adding equipment to bandlo it. Kla math could cultlvato this crop, if wo'd stop raising rumpuses over non-essentials long enough to giro a little attention to its importance. Wo re fer to the tourist crop. Mcdford has found it a paying proposition. The Mall Tribune under tho heading. "Mcdford Is Prospeous," says of It Mcdford has enjoyed a sum . mer of unusual prosperity. Whllo tho rest of tho country has suffered a devastating de pression, with business at a standstill and millions "of unem ployed, there has been, relative ly speaking no unemployment In Southern Oregon, and even tho normal mid-summer let-up has been absent. What Is tho reason? Ono rea son is, Medford enjoyed no war . 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 r u hotel guests, for Medfo"" is the distributing center for 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 ist crop Is one of Jackson coun 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 citizen. An Apple a Day. They tell us.- said Mr. Bllltops, "that an apple a day keeps tho doctor away, and I guess that Is so; I am sure that an apple a nlgbt promotes sound and restfusl umber. "We keep our apples In the Icebox! The last tiling that Mrs. Bllltops, ever thoughtful Mrs. Bllltops, docs In mak ing ber rounds before retiring for the nlgbt Is to get an apple out of the Ice box and place It, with a fruit knife, on the dining-room table for me. "Nightly the last thing I do before going to bed Is to go out Into the din. ing room, seat myself comfortably, and eat that apple; leisurely. I find It cool and refreshing; In every way agreeable; and having eaten It I turn in and sleep delightfully. "An applo a day keeps tho doctoi away. An applo at night makes you sleep right." Let'a Tajk Piano, with Earl Shcp. ptrd. WASHINGTON, Sept. S, Pros poets tor tho world's wheat supply, whllo not so satisfactory as was 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 of agriculture. Tho 20 countries included In this cstlmato are tho United States, Can ada, Argontlna, Chile, Uruguny, Bel- 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 Although tho long-sustalnod drought throughout tho greater part of tho northern hemisphoro was a serious mennco to tho various crops In many countries ,tho fall-sown wheat has not been affected adver sely so much as was at first sup posed. On tho contrary, tbo fall- sown wbcat managed to obtain a firm hod on the soli and a fairly vigorous growth before tbo bo ginning of tho drought. nearly an or nortnern and cen 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 pared with 263,189,000 bushels last year. . RossLin Crops Hopelejs A very unsatisfactory featuro in tho present .international situation Russian crops. Unofficial reports Is the hopeless conditions of " the state that during last autumn and tho spring of this year only a very small area was sown to ths var lous crops resulting In a faluro to produce sufficient food for tho country's neoijs It is also reported unofficial that a considerable rmount of wboat will yet ht im ported by Ilussla this year. But up to the present tlmo tbo amount fit wncat, as wen as ,otber foodstuffs, which will be Imported la conject ural, and tho bureau of markets uud crop estimates is unaDlo to mako a doflnlto statoment concerning it. In northern Africa, the wheat crop was genorally largor than last yoar. In Algeria ( threshing results show a bettor ylold than was ox poctod earlier in tho season. In Tunis, bad weather reduced the yields somewhat from those expect ed earlier, while in Morocco the crop was genorally reporte'd as sat isfactory. According to estimates published by tho international insti tute of agriculture at. Home, these three countries aro expected to pro duce, for 1921, a ylold of 66,138, 000 bushels of wheat, comparod with 36,743,000 bushels In 1920.

A vast area of Alaska hitherto considered worth less may prove tbo most productlvo part of tbo torrltory, according to prospectors' reports. Tho first doflnlto Information was brought to Nomo In August by a pros pecting party headed by It. D. Adams. This party roportod that oll-benring formations stretched from tho coast to tbo western boundary of Alaske, whero they seemed to morgo Into the Fort Norman oil development ou tho Mackenzie. Tho heaviest oil seepages were found near Capo Simpson, on tho Artie coast cast of Point Barrow, whero tho Adams party staked claims. Tho seepages .occurred on sovoral bar ren hills. On ono tho oil was seen to rise at a point near the top and flow downward Into a lake. So con spicuous was this seopago it could be discerned plainly at a great distance. Tho most peculiar thing about these ) seepages, according to Mr. Adams, li tbejr variety. They run variously dsrk green, bright yel low apd dark brown. The party col lected fifty gallons to be shipped to San Francisco for chemical analysis, Mr. Adams, while optimistic over tho prospect of establishing produc ing flleds, points out that only intense geological work ana numerous test wells would locate tho main sources. Evon then, he added, there would be the difficult problem of transporta tion', which, however, need not bo Insurmountable. Two Standard Oil parties from Cal ifornia put in the summer exploring some of the territory covered by the Adams party, and made similar re ports of conditions. Since, flvo years ago, a teachor re ported a "iako of oil" near Point Barrow, and natives added moro startling details to the story, there bad been sporadic prospecting for oil north of Nomo.
