The week's crop report .is: _"Corn has partially recovered from its setback and is in a fairly-promising condition, with a good stand and improving color. The usual complaints are heard of the ravages of cut-worms, and some re-plan ting has been necessitated. The acreage has been increased by the partial failure of oats in many localities. The prevalent drouth is injurious to all' spring grain, and the hay crop is damaged past recovery. Pastures are becoming very short, and in many sections stock water is scarce. The recent freezing temperature was most destructive to truck gardens, grapes, and small fruits." Company F will be interested in the following order from Adjutant General Prime; The regular practice season will close November 30, and only such scores as are made between May 1 and Nov. 30 will be considered in making up the aggregate required to determine the class to which any soldier shall belong and that men will not bo permitted to fire at longer ranges who have not made 40 per cent, of the possible score at 200 yards. Company commanders are urged to complete their practice by July 15, if possible,' and failure to instruct at least 50 per cent, of the total strength of tho company present for duty, in firing at 200 yai-ds each season, will render the company liable to be mustered out of the service as falling below the standard of efficiency of the Iowa national guard.
