Oats are a fairly good crop and reports are from forty to seventy- five bushels per acre. The oats were filled atid ripened before the hot. dry, wave struck this section, The price of oats is somewhat less than thirty cents but It is claimed that with a short corn crop the demand for oats will eventually bring up the price. Look For'Dollar Corn. A number of farmers who hold a quantity of old corn are living to the hopes that the price will reach the dollar mark. With a twenty-five per cent or more shortage the price is bound to advance. Other Products. The early potatoes hi this jsection are fairly good, %ut the late potatoes will be, a total 'failure unless the country gets'a good soaking mighty soon and ., even then the crop will be short as the vines in many fields are 'ourned^up.
