DES MOINES, Aug. 21.—The daily mean temperature of the past week was about three degrees above normal, with an excess of sunshine, but the general conditions have been decidedly more favorable for all unharvested crops. The drouth has been effectually broken by copious showers in two- thirds of the state, the southwest and south central districts receiving the least amount. Reports show an improvement in the condition of corn in fields where the vitality of the plant has been maintained and the ears have been formed. A very large portion of the acreage planted has been or will be cut for fodder, and all reports confirm the previous estimate that the total amount of merchantable corn cribbed this year will be about one- third of the average yield of this state. Pastures are beginning to revive. Potatoes, late sown flax and millet show an improvement. A good beginning has been made in fall plowing, A GUARANTEED CUBE. We authorize our advertised druggist to sell Dr. King's New Discovery for consumption, coughs, and colds upon this condition : If you are afflicted with a cough, cold, or any lung, throat, or chest trouble, and will use this remedy as directed, giving it a fair trial, and experience no benefit you may return the bottle and have your money refunded.
