RAINFALLSTSTATE FOR THE PAST WEEK Grass fat cattle from Kansas will be moving to market freely for the next sixty days. This movement usually reaches Its peak from August 15 to September 15. but indications point to the possibility of an earlier climax to the movement this year than iismnl according to .1 statement by Edward C. Paxton, statistician for tho Hureau of Agricultural Economics. Abundant gras3 early in the season, a high quality of feeders, reasonably prof liable prices for better grades of stuff, all tend to stimulate early shipments. In addition, the fly plague has been unusuall ysevere and cattle that fleshed rapidly In May and early June have had to spend so much timo slnco mitFJnut) fighting flies that they are not taking on satisfactory gains and in some instances have gone backward rather than forward in development the las Uhlrt'y days. Some feeders fearing a continuation ot the pest of fifes and a further deterioration will take advantage of profitable early gains and tho present satlsfactorw market rather than watt for an abatement of tho flies and the possibility of more profitable weights later in the season. Sold Many Cattle. I«ist year Kansas sold, through public stockyards, nbout 96,000 cattle and calves In July, 215,000 in August; 290,000 In September; 270,000 in October; 170,000 in November, and 120,000 in Docember; or a total of approximately 1,160,000 head In the six months per : iod. During tho same period of 1921 the corresponding movement was about 990,000 head, and. in 1930 it amounted to nearly 900.000. There are more ca.ttle on Kansas grass than a year ago, particularly In the flint hill district, but the average run la of younger stuff and largo numbers of this class of feeders can be profitably carried over for another year or fed out on corn in ths late fall or early wlnted if the corn crop and market conditions justify such action. From the present outlook it does not seem probablo that Kansas will market to exceed 1,000,000 cattle and calvea between July 1 and January 1 this year unless some circumstance' that cannot he foreseeu should interfere. Of the million head to bo marketed tn the next six months about 600,000 should bo fat enough for the block and the other 400,00(\ should ,ba stockers or normal and frequently characterlied by cattlemen as being "fine as thoy hftTe over seen." In Colorado, Montana and South Dakota the range condition averages close to 95 per cent of normal. The general average for all the western range Is now 94 per cent or two points higher than a month ago. All fRrm and range pastures Included iu theso Rtatos will now aver- uge five points belter than 0 year' ago. This high condition of pastures reflects Itself in a corresponding high average condition of cattle in those states which are rated at 04 per cent as compared with 91 cor cent laBt month. Except tha fly plague thcro is 110 detracting inlluenco to future improvement. Estimates were taken July 1 as to the spring calf crop as a percentage ot the number ot cows on hand last January 1. This is" tha first timo suph an estimate has been attempted and thero is no check as to its reliability, nor are comparisons^ available on a similar basis for former years. Tho percentages are as follows: Arizona, 47 per cent; California, 41 per cent; Colorado, 60 per cent; Idaho, 48 per cent; Kansas, 78 por cent; Montana, 69 per cent; Nebraska, 77 per cent; Nevada, 34 per cent; Naw Mexico, 46 per-cent;/North Dakota, 66 per cent; Oklahoma, 64 per cent; Oregon. 46 per cent; South Dakota, 74 per cent; Texas, 58 per cent; Utah, 40 per cent; Washington, 77 per ceiiL and Wyoming, 51 per cent.

Corn is making rapid growth over the entire state. Chinch bugs and grasshoppers are causing some dam. age. It Is practically all "laid by," although some fields are rather weedy.

July 26.62c; October 23.68<g)70c; December 23.16 ©ISc, Spot quiet; middling27.35c. less than last fall and from Wyoming about 20 per cent greater. The North Dakota movement ought to average about 29 percent fat and tho Wyoming ohpiments 45 per cent fat. Some Steers Scarce. Aged steers should be relatively scarce this fall from all of tho western states. It Is tho increasing tendency ot recent years. The quality and quantity of grass thru is now available and tho present condition of cattle will, justify the assumption that this fall's delivery will reach market iu prime! condition of flesh and healthfulness. Range conditions have been unusually fine except in parts of Arizona and New Mexico. In Kansas, Nebraska, Idaho, Nevada, Washington and Oregon grass conditions are rated above after abducting him from his home. The alleged whlppers charged him with immorality, the police records show. Acquaintances of Petropol said today that ho was probably in Sapulpa, where most of his oil interests are located. THE NEWS.
