REPORT JUST ISSUED
HARVEST IS WELL ADVAHOED
And Crop Shows ITo Sins of Earn
zgt by Rust Pastures Con
tinue in Good Shape.
From Tuesday's 1'ai'v.
There is nothing to the report
thut the Nebraska wheat crop lias
been damaged by rust. This is the
information given out by the Jiur
lington's agricultural department
that makes a specialty of sealing
with grain conditions in the terri
tory wcvt of the Missouri river.
In its crop report compiled from
data up to last Saturday, the I5'ir
lington experts, in discussing the
wheat conditions,' sny that all
ft h rough !CebraskaMTtT"v'Tteat harvest
is well along, adding. "There is no
doubt. at all but that the crop has
reached maturity in condition o
sustain the highest estimates that
have been made. We doubt if there
has been a year in the last tor;
v.hen so little damage has occurred
by reason of rut. storms or from
other causes as this year."
Final estimates on the Nebraska
wheat crop, figured on 100 per cent
as the basis and taking, the ten-year
average into consideration, by divi
sions are: Omaha. 16; Lincoln, 9S:
Wymore, 103; MeCook. 110 per cent.
The estimate of about S.I.OOO.OO-V
bushels still holds good.
Corn is reported io be making
rapid progress and conditions for i.
bumper crop are said to be most
favorable. During the warm weath
er of the last week the cereal has
made such a wonderful growth that
it is said to have fully reached h
.ormal stage fcr this season of tlu
year. Cultivation generajly has been
finished and the condition on th
basis of 100 per cent for perfect by
divisions follows: Omaha. 91; Lip
coin. 96; Wymore and McCook, 100
Harvesting of oats, rye and barley
is well under way and the yield is
expected to be fully up to the nor
mal, if not better.
Pastures continue in excellent
condition and all through the ha
section of the state a large tonago
of fodder is being obtained.
