ABnual Eevitw of tie American Agri-
Home Coxaumption and an Iscrsas d
Foreign Demand Expected to Yield
an Average Return to the Farmer.
Dependant on Money. .
New Tobx, Aug. 22. The following
a a summary ot tne American Agri
culturist's anual review of the crop
situation and of the agricultural year:
The harvest of 1893 in the United
States Is, in many respects, similar to
that of three years ago, but with
every prospect that home consump
tion and an increased foreign demand
will so advance values as to yield as
large a net return to farmers as on
the average of recent years.
lne cotton crop will be harvested
on fewer acres than last year. As
large or a larger breadth was planted
to this staple, but the inability of
many planters to borrow money
enough to work the crop, together
with the drouth, floods and worms,
and the still greater difficulty of get
ting money for picking, combine to
seriously curtail production.
Present indications point to a crop
of 1,750,000,000 bushels of corn, con
trasted with 1,630,000,000 last year
and over 2,000,000,000 bushels in the
immense yield of two seasons previous.
The wheat output will not exceed
443,000,000 bushels according to the
American Agriculturist's own reports
and its interpretations of government
to 614,00,000 ps the
average lor the past two i
400,000,000 bushels in 1890.
2.5O0.0O0 less acres were dc
voted to wheat than last
year, and the bulk of this
decrease was in the surplus states,
which bid fair to have 78,000,000 fewer
bushels than last year, and 125,000,000
bushels under surplus states produc
tion of 1891. Available supplies of
old wheat are 40,000 bushels greater
than twelve months since, . but
ever : all of that farmers also
hold 17,000,000 bushels more old
wheat now than then. The
total supplies of the ensuing year are
only 500,000,000 bushels, or 117,000,000
less than the average of the two pre
vious crops. Our home consumption
has averaged 365,000,000 bushels an
nually, leaving an apparent export
surplus of 135,000,000 bushels, against
exports last year of 192,000,000, and
the season before, 225,000,000.
This year's acreage of oats was
never exoeeded except in 1889, when
over 750,000,000 bushels were rown on
27,460,000 acres, compared with 620,
000,000 bushels on a slightly smaller
acreage this season. This is within
40,000,000 bashels of last year's out
turn and just about an average of the
previous , three cropa The usual
quantity of rye, buckwheat and bar
ley will fie garnered.
The supply of hay (over 83,000,000
tons) and other forage is abundant,
though mill feed and cottonseed meal
may be higher than last winter.
The wool clip is somewhat heavier
than last year. Serious reduction in
the supply of live stock is reflected in
reduced arrivals at our domestio
markets and decreased exports during
the past seven months, with a very
fair tendency to values.
The American Agriculturist notes
an increased domestio crop of sugar,
but a shortage in tha world's produc
tion of 300.0oO long tons of sugar; but
"prices are more likely to be affected
by changes in legislation than by
changes in production."
Potatoes have felt the drouth and
about 165,000,000 bushels are looked
for slightly more than last ysar,
compared to 245,000,000 in the bounti
ful crop of two years ago.
Reviewing the financial situation
from the farmers' standpoint, the
American Agriculturist concludes that
"the prospect for prices in the early
future depends more upon the mone
tary situation than upon natural con
ditions, all of which point to causes
that should result in higher prices."
Stocks abroad are not materially
larger than a year ago, so that the ex
cess of 5.000,000 bushels in the United
States stocks of old still leaves an in
dicated shortage in the bread crop of
the t world of 100,000,000 bushels of
wheat This allows Russia as good a
crop as last year. The European rye
crop is hardly a fair average; oats are
under average and potatoes are In
jured by arouth."
With no extra surplus ofthe bread
crops and an assured deficit of wheat,
the United States is likely to be called
upon to export as much wheat as last
year if not more. Indeed, exports
.have been inach heavier since July 1
than lnftt eaun. "The conclusion is
justifiable that present prices of
grains ere abnormally low, as thero
is little evidence of our ability to
sparaas much wheat as Europe wants
unless a Urge underconsumption pre
vails In the United States.

"Tobacco Users Smile Sometimes''
When told how tobacco 'hurts them:
sometimes they don't, because shattered
nerves, weak eyes, chronio catarrh and
lost manhood, tells the story, if you
are a tobacco user and want to quit,
post yourself about NO-TO-BAC, the
wonderful, harmless, guaranteed tobacco-habit
cure by calling on II. T. Clark
Drug Co., our agent, and securing a
copy of our little book, "Don't Tobacco
Spit or Smoke Your Life Away;" they
have sold many boxes of NO-TO-BAC,
and they are prepared to sell it to you
under an absolute guarantee to cure.
