Nebraska's coin belt does not have the
productive appearance as it usually does
at this season as will be shown by a visit
through the eastern and southern por
tions of the stale. Fruitless stalks rear
themselves in large fields that others
years have rolled out fifty and sixty
bushels to the acre. However, there is
abundance for home needs and but few
fields in the corn region will go less
than twenty bushels.
The way of the agriculturalist is
hard. During the early summer months
vegetation was drowuded with floods of
of rain; in mid-summer heat scorched
the fields uutil there was no moisture
within ten feet of the surface of the
ground; heavy fall rains now spoil the
hay. Hay is spoiling ou the ground and
in the stack. An old resident of the
South Fork country tells us the hay
never spoiled in such quantities as it
does this year. It was dry aud open
when stacked and the four or five inches

a results much spoiled hay now stands
