TOBSttA1P t SEPflBMStift 10, IMS THE HUTCHINSON NEWS. PACK NtKE. CORN CROP HIT HARD Next lo (lie Smallest Yield In the Last rorly.Pour Yeorsi THIS IS THE STATEMENT Issued by Secretary er, Showing Condition HL It Stands Now. Topeka, Kansas, Sept, 10.—That next to the smallest com crop lu the past forty faur years is BOW forecasted for Kansas Is tho outstanding feature of the September crop report Issued today by lSdwnrd C. Paxton, Field Agent for'" the United States Department or Agriculture. A condition of 23 percent of normal on September first indicates an average yield of 7.82 bushels, and a total production of G3,7O0,OO0 bushels for the state. The year 1913 still holds the record for low production when the slate's crop •was estimated at 23,424,000 bushels. Last year's crop totaled 128,184,000 bushels. Tho average production of tho past ten years Is I2S>6G,000 Bushels. Tho 'best average ylcldB this year will he found In tho northeast part of the stale, north of tho Kaw and cast of the Blue. Fair averages nje also In prospect in Jewell, Smith, and 1'hilllps counties along the north central border and In Cheyenne, Sherman, and Rawlins "counties of the northwest. Elsewhere in tho state except In a few scattered counties of email acreage Jn the west the yields will bo so light as to spell almost a (allure, Tho filling of silos and cut- tint Of fodder Is already nearly completed ovef the oasteftt halt faf the state. In the northwest several, weeks of warm weather, are still heeded to Insure maturity without frost' damage. • Wheat. % Good and early preparation of the seed bed tor fall sowing has been the general rule and drilling Is already well under way. ttecotit rains have affordod ample moisture In most portions of the state to Insure sprouting and an early start for the plant. The seed wheat loans being made in tho western and northern counties and the v r«ccnt proclamation guaranteeing next year's price have tended to stiffen tho Kansas farmer's determination to produco a "win tho war" wheat crop next year. Prospects grow brighter every day that the state will make a new record In wheat acreages this-fall. Estimates on sowing will •be made December ilrst. Raslern Kansas counties that a year ago sowed from two to six times their normal acreages promise to show another phenomenal',' Increase this season. Shortness of man power for putting lit tho crop has been largely overcome by the use of the tractor, Increased hours of service, and forohandednoss In preparation. Many Kansas farmers have been doing two men's work. Grain Sorghums. The sorghums havo again demonstrated thglr tenacity through fair weather and foul. Tho average condition of the grain sorghums, including kaflr, mllo and foterita, on September first is estimated at B0 per cent of normal and a total of 30,000,- ccnt of normal and a total of 30,000,000 bushels of grain Is forecasted. Of (ho throo varieties mllo promises best. Kafir was so rotarded by the droughty slimmer that it has headed very late In many sections and will bo In serious danger of early frost. Many fields will certainly not have time to mature grain even with a lata frost date but all will make good yields of stover and fodder. Revised estimates place Uio total acreage of grain sorghums at 2,040,000 acres, or 80,000 acres less Minn last year. Hay. The average total yield of alfalfa la estimated at. 2.03 tons per acre with a total production for the state of 2,181,841 tonsi 946,d91 tons less than in 1917. The average yield' of wild hay was only .60, tons per acre totnt- ing Bl4,4(HrtoriS. 1 timolhy yield Was the lightest for years being only .63 tons per acre with a total tonnage far tho Stats of* 188,800. For all-hay in the slate the total production this year is estimated at 3,831,000 tons. This is Icsfe than the 1917 production which wan Itself a very light crop. If Kansas livestock Is to fare well thin winter this shortage In hay will heed to bo overcome by utilising every possible ton of fodder and ensilage. An, unusually large acreage of cane or sweet sorghum which Is now In fair condition will assist In overcoming the shortage. Farmers generally are Inclined to lay Up a\large supply of fodder and other roughage for their, own use and market their surplus hay at the attractive high prices. Broom Corn.N /Broom corn has only depreciated 10 per cent In promise sinco tho first of August and the condition at present Is placed at 65 per cent of normal prospect. An. average yield of 341 lbs. of brush is forecasted with a total production of 10,242 tons. The Oklahoma and Texas crops wore so badly Injured by the summer drought that tho Kansas broom corn growers bid fair to hit another good market ^ear. In tho counties of larger acreage tho conditions are estimated as follows: Allen, B6 per cent; Finney, 02 per cont; Grant, 65 per cent; Gray, 78 per cent; Greeley, 85 per cent; Hamilton, 00 per cent; Haskell 05 per cent; Kearny, 05 per cent; Meade, 00 per cent; Morton, 69 per cent; Reno, 80 per cent; Klce 70 per cent; Seward, 67 per cent; Stevens, 70 per cent; Wallace, 58 per cent. \ Hogs. It is estimated that there nre now 105 per cent as many hogs on farms for fattening as a year ngo. Aid corn is growing scarce and where tho new crop Is a total failure thero is an increasing tendency to market light hogs which will undoubtedly continue for some time. -In the northeastern part of the state whetn considerable new corn is in Bight farmers are holding on to their stock for finishing. Farrowing of- the fall crop of pigs has begun and in those sections producing llttlo or no corn there will certainly be considerable number of pigs USED FITTY YEARS CLEARS SKIN " AT ALL DRUGGISTS thrown on to the market a Utile later. These pigs will be taken care of by those sections having corn either in this state or adjoining states. Apples. Apples gufferetr a severe drop from Iho extreme heat of 'August. The average condition for tho state Is now estimated at 40 per cent. A tolal agricultural crop Of 3,253,000 bushels is forecasted and a distinctly commercial crop pj 482,800 bbls. The Arkansas ValHfy section continues better in prospect than does tho Missouri River district. Because unenrod for the farm crop has suffered tho greatest decline almost a failure. THE DAffe ADANCED. Can Now Put In a Claim for Improvement Work Up to December.

TEUTON TREACHERY. Many Examples Are Being Brought to Light of Dastardly Deeds. With Ihe American Army in Franco, Sept. 10.- -Crlm-iacod, begrimed and stained ufler several days, of desperate, continuous battle, a platoon of Marines was firing rapidly hut calmly aud accurately at th>> Hull ranks. Tho foe's numbers were in the majority but Hie Sea Soldiers' fire was proving speedily evening. Suddenly the Huns dropped their rifles and cried "Kamerad." The Marines waited for the surrendering (tnoiny to approach. When tho foe camo wilhin 200 yards-, their first line dropped. They had been dragging miithlno guns by ropes attaehotl .to their bells. About 30 Marines fell before their comrades with a yell of rage and re- vonge surged forward. Tho bayonet lot not a Hun survive, , This Is another example of Teuton treachery. It Is told by an officer and two members of the platoon now a hospital. ROUND UP SLACKERS. Big Plans Aro Being Made to Get All of the Men to Properly Register.
