Wheat and Oats.
Harvesting has begun in central
north Texas, and is moving toward
the Panhandle. Conditions have im-

than expected. In northwest Texas,
particularly, conditions are excellent.
Government estimates places the acre-
age at 1,761,000 acres, with a probable
yield of 20,000,000 bushels. The oats
crop in south and central Texas lias
fallen below normal.
The crop is in excellent condition
over the entire state, and a yield larg-

creased acreage, now appears prob-!«|
The condition of the hay crop is
above that of last year with a yield
expected to exceed 1,000,000 tons. The
Irish potato crop, from a largely re-
duced acreage, will equal last year’s
yield of 220,000 barrels Acreage in
