Acre Swea City— Harvesting • is getting into full swing here this Week, with about half the fields being combine-harvested and the others 'cut with the binder and shocked. Oats yields vary, some being reported as liglit as 27 pounds to the bushel, while others run as high as 36 pounds pert-bushel or more. In general, the yield is good. One field of rye harvested by combine is reported at 35' bushels per acre. As yet, very few evidences of corn borers, have been seen, though they are reported present In considerable numbers in Martin county, Minn., adjoining this area on the north. Grasshoppers have not been reported in the fields, but the grasshopper infestation of vegetable gardens is the worst since the dry years o£ the 1930s. . Corn is believed to be about the best on record in this region, if present indications are fulfilled.
