reports now in from correspondents of this
Excessive rains in a one sections in
Southeastern and Central a well a North
western Kansas axe reported as having
caused considerable damage to crops, es
'pecially on rottom lands. Wheat and oats
in such localities hare suffered trom rnst
Cora and sorzfcum have been retarded
in their growth and many field have be
come weedy, the farmers fcr many day
no: being ab e to cultivate them by reason
of incessant rains. Ihe area of wheat
and oats thus affected is comparatively
small and probably wi.l not very materi
ally lower the agcregate product of the
State in these crops.
Corn and all forage ercpi arc in a
pro mi sine co-iditioc, while potatoes and
all kinds of grasses, native and culti

progress in the S'ate since tbe first week
in June and wi'l not b comp'eted in tbe
northern portion of the State until July
10 (including spring wheat harvest).
Much difficulty in some sections ha been
exper.eneed in cu ting wheat with binders
by reason of tbe so!t condition of tbe soil.
The crop, however, for tha most part will
be saved in g-od condition.
Spring Wneat The estimated product
per acre is placed by our correspondents at
ichte-n bushels. Oa an erea of 14 920
acres as reported before, we have a total
product of spr;iig wheat for this year of
fts8,f-00 bushels. lh:s nrodact aiaed to

to the wheat crop from excessive rains

it is believed it will cot materially affect

GREAT BREWERY FIRE.
Milwaukee. Wis.. July 5. The Falk,
Jung ifc Bjrchert Brew.ng Company's
' plant, located oa South Pierce street be
tween Twenty-fourth and Twenty-fifth
t avenues, was tetany destroyed by fire
f yesterday afternoon, not a tu.ld.ng of the
iireat plant being spared.
The fire originated ii the malt bouse and
-preai with great rapidity, destroying the
malt bouse, the brew btiue. the offices,
the botti.ng department and fina'lysprtad
to th- beer celi&rj, which are t.H turning.
The total loss is estimated at from jTOi.COO
1 to sSWkK), and the insurance reaches only
nair of tni- sum. The beer ce.iars con
tained 52 030 barrels of the ambrr flui I
and the bo'titug department was stocked
with 6 020 more barrels ready for ship
ment to the south.
As the brewery was located at the city
limits it was very difficu.t fcr the fire de
partment to do effective work and two
hours after the fire J a J started the great
plant was a mass of flames. The cause of
the fire i-, unknown, but is suppo-ed to
have ben overheating of the malt house.
The capacity of tue breerr was C0J,000
barrels of beer per year and SW men were
employed in the 3 abhhaient.
