Notice To Farmers. ,
In going over thu 11. &. M, in tlto
central and western part of tho state I
note an unfavorable' eondltlo'n in a
large percent of tho wheat and. oat

and spots of a greater or loss magnitudu

color, and tho leaves aro narrow and ,

out by evaporation has much to- do'
with this", there is another trouhlo--tbii' ,
