It 'si HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Smallest Wheat Crop in 41 Years American Production Estimated at 483VL> Million Bushels WASraNGTON-(yP)-The story of the drouth was written Tuesday in figures of the government crop fore- fast which predicted a wheat harvest tit only 483,662,000 bushels, smallest in tt shears. Production in 1893 was 427.533,000 bushels. The estimate showed the same situation in the case of oats, barley, rye, Mid corn save for 1930. when the corn crop was ravaged by midsummer dry weather. Corn production for 1934 was estimated at 2.113,137,000 bushels. "Due to acreage reduction programs and to losses from drouth, the total acreage of field crops harvested will probably be the lowest in 23 years,'' the report said, adding that "the crop situation is less promising than at this season in any recent year and little if any brighter than it was a month ago-'" .Private observers had felt that rains since the official crop forecasts in June had improved conditions to the extent that the tentative figure of 500,000,000 bushels of wheat a month ago would be raised. Instead, there was a reduction of 16,378,000 bushels. The estimate for winter wheat last month was 400,000,000 bushels as compared to 394.268,000 today. Cffiical forecast for spring wheat is official forecast fo rspring wheat in June but said the figure was around 100,000,000 bushels. The estimate Tuesday was 89,394,000. The five-year average production of wheat for 1927-1931 was 886.359,000 bushels. Secretary Wallace announced that the 15 per cent reduction in wheat acreage might be continued for the new crop year but he specifically reserved the right to decree that those who signed contracts plant more of the grain. The report said that nearly normal rainfall during June over the Dakotas, Minnesota and Wisconsin, where conditioas were very bad, had helped but that the rnins were inadequate over the corn belt and that a new drouth area had developed in the Southwest, Blevins Mrs. Ada Landers, Mr. and Mrs. Horace Edes and son and Mrs. C.

Editor of Advance The prophet Elijah stands out as a great figure in spiritual history. The records come ot us from a remote past, and it is no disparagement of Scrip- lure to say that they bear tho characteristics of early records in the history of other times and peoples. We probably have reality mingled with tradition and beautiful stories that came down concerning the prophets; but the important thing is the simpliciy with which all these emphasize their spiritual truth. Elijah was a man of his time. He docs not appear in the New Testament nor in the glory of the New Testament teaching. When the disciples of Jesus wanted Him to call down fire from heaven and consume inhospitable villagers "as did Elijah," Jesus told them that they did not know what spirit they were of. Jesus came to reveal a larger and fuller gospel—a gospel of love and forgiveness, deep in • its comprehensiveness and magnnanimity. But Elijah stands forth, nevertheless, as a great prophet of righteousness, stern, as many men of simple earnestness and righteousness have been, with his enemies well defined and with no great purpose in his heart to love his enemies. On the contrary, his enemies were the enemies of the Lord, and he was consumed with energy and zeal against those who slighted the truth. We have in our lesson a beautiful picture of the man of simple character, fed by the ravens and drinking from the water of the brook Cherith. True prophets have always been men of simple life and habit. There is something in the prophetic mission that seems inharmonious with luxury and indulgence. The prophet must be well disciplined if he would speak of others concerning truth and • righteousness. I Elijah's great antagonist was the I woman Jezebel, the wife of Ahab. We think of Jezebel as a woman of very wicked and evil character. The term has become a byword for the most debased sort of woman. It is just possible that this representation is not quite fair to Jezebel. Elijah's intense opposition to her, as the enemy of true religion, may blind our minds to the extent to which Jezebel may have been sincere and earnest in the religion that she professed. But it was a religion that had not the clear moral sense of Elijah's devotion to Jehovah. It was a religion that was associated with false practices, and even if we think of Jezebel as zealous in her own religion, we must think of her as bigoted and perverse, without a mind and heart open to finer and truer influences. It is not enough in life to be earn\ cst and zealous. The more earnest and zealous we are in wrong courses, the more harm we nre likely to tlo. The blindness of Jezebel was manifested • in her hatred of Elijah and in her i determination to destroy, him if she i could. I Even a prophet must value his life, j though he may be willing to yield it on occasion, and Elijah under the threats of Jezebel went to the wilderness discouraged and broken spirited. i Here the Lord's care was manifest more even than in the feeding of the ! ravens. An angelic vision came to ! Elijah in his sleep arid aroused him. ! The broken-spirited and discouraged man arose in strength, prepared for I the great conflict and triumph that were in store for him.
