YOUNG'S SEED HOUSE Hutchinson, Kans. (Special Correspondence.)

It Is true that the total 'of the latest Uritlsh war loan now j slightly exejK -ds the equivalent or this I apcci'tlc, amount.

Your grocer has the lemons and any drug store or toilet counter will supply three ounces of Orchard White for a few cents.

McAdoo, who has not been fully In accord with the House bill, nnd will gladly see amendments in line with recognized principles of sound national finance and taxation. Suitable amendments can only be secured by unmistakable public, demands; and with elections approaching there are stronger reasons than usual for Intelligent expert opinion to assort.'itself. There is; no controverting the stat"- meut that all who remain at home should share the burden of wur In proportion lo their ability. Profiteering by capital has been reduced to a minimum by Government regulation; but farmers and certain classes of labor still are profiteering at public expense, and they, too, should be obliged to do their bit financially the same •js oilier .classes. At present they are highly favored classes. One of too fairest methods of taxation would be the adoption of consumption tanea,, though for reasons that do not bear discussion these are more or less cn- popular. War Is All Right. As to the war, the.allies -are continuing their brilliant ^work. It appears reasonable to suppose Unit steady progress may be expected la ,th'e comparatively few weeks whuu now remain before the rigors of winter will force a more or less complete shutting down of military operations. From the market standpoint a continuance of tho current favorable cor.ijl- Hons seems to be widely expected and to that extent they appear to have been as widely discounted'. ' in' other words, couUnued success Is 'apt to be considered a mailer of cqut'sa which will operate in favor oi- a BUB< tained market but without' causing important advances. On the ntlrir hand, should there come serious reverses they would he a foatnci unexpected and not unlikely to make themselves felt In the form of a soiling movement which could well result In sonio degree of depression. The Harvests, •' The year's harvests are noi fulfilling the highly optimistic predictions which seemed justified in the| spring. In August serious damage was done to the two great crops, corn and cotton. The corn ylijhl, according to the Department of Agriculture-; la Its report based on Sc-plcniikr I conditions, promises to roach about 2,072,000,000 bushels, or 317,000,000 bushels less, than the Department's estimate basod on"August 1 conditions. In 1917 the yield was officially figured, at above three billion (3,159,000.00^) bushels and there were expectations^ In grain sections early In the Beason that last year's figures were to be well exceeded by the . current yield. However', with corn -selling at about $1.75 per bushel It is evident that our farmers are to receive a 'very satisfactory financial return for their product, and the spending power in the. agricultural sections of the country will again ba satisfactory.
