BASS FOR KANSAS STREAMS
Two Clint ot tlm Jlluck Variety Have
Hoc n lllNtrlliutcil ThU Year
John Haughey, Kansas state fish
commissioner, has distributed in the
state two cars of black bass from the
United States hatchery this year, and
is looking for one or two more before
the season closes. Meanwhile vandals
continue to use dynamite and to seine
the streams nuil ponds, contrary to
law, and the law requiring persons
who own dams to provide llsh wnys Is
ignored. The value of flshwnys has
been proved this year. For the llrst
time In many years fish of the large
clue, have been caught In tho head
waters of the Kansas streams, nnd It is
due wholly to the extraordinary floods
which let the fish pass over the dams.

to be powerful enough to command

The weekly crop summary. Issued

com Is maturing so slowly that tho
frost may catch It. Three weeks more,
however, will place most of It beyond

"The pnst week has been cool and
moist. The dnlly mean temperature
has averaged 2 degrees below normal,
"The rainfall bus been above normal
In the southeastern part of the state,
where heavy thunderstorms occurred,
with rain from 1 to 2 Inches. In the
remainder of the stnte the rainfall was
below uortnul, ranging from none to
nbout half nn Inch; but while the
nmoiint of water measured was small,
the weather wus cloudy and dump,
with some fog.
"The moist wenther of the week was
unfavorable for haying nnd threshing,
nnd some liny wns discolored and dam
aged by rain. Grain In shocks, nnd in
some places In stacks, Is sprouting.
Warm, dry weather Is needed for both
haying nnd threshing. The wet weath
er of July and August has caused both
to be much behind normal advance
ment nt this time of yenr.
"Corn has continued to grow well,
but bus matured very slowly. Some
early planted corn In matured suffi
ciently to be beyond damage from
frost. Tho late corn Is lining well and
promises a large crop, but much of It
will require three weeks to mature.
"The soil Is In excellent condlllon
