It is estimated by competent authori
ties on tile applo situation that it will
require a thousand men to pick tho
npplc crop of Reno county, Kansas.
This docs not mean that n thousand
men should be sent in to do tho work.
Not any should bo sent In, for there
nro enough men In the county to do
the work. Tho small orchards may bo
all picked by tho owners nnd their
families a ml thero will bo many fruit
raisers who will employ one, two and
three men npleco. The bulk of tho men
will be employed In the big orchards
Yaggys will probably have 00,000
bushels of apples, maybe more; tho
Rnyls will probably havo as many ns
20,000 bushels; Underwood and Vllcs,
25,000 bushelB. and many others will
havo largo amounts. It Is difficult to
estimate individual crops or the yield
of the county as n whole, because there
have been no previous years In which
tho crop has been anything like the
crop this year, bo that there Is no
precedent to go by. It seems a safe
estlmnto by those who have gone over
tho Held to say that the county will
raise anywhero from 300,000 to 400,000
busheU of apples this year.
The greater per cent of these will
be late apples und they will bo ready
for picking soon after September 15.

The following statement was ob
tained by tho Associated press from
the war ofllce at St. Petersburg:
"General KuroklV army crossed In
force to the right lank of the Taltso
river and it therefore became neces
sary for tho Russians to be in a posi
tion to repel a blow In this direction.
"In view of this development in tho
operations, General Kuropatkln de
cided to abandon his positions on the
left bank and to concentrate his whole
nrmy on the other side of the river.
This position Is the strongest, both In
character nnd In site. Tho great Issue
will be finally decided thero.
"Uy withdrawing to this position the
Russian army avoids the necessity of
being divided by tho river nmS enjoys
the advantage of compactness.
"General Kufopatkln's move, there
fore, is not to be considered as a re
troat, but rather as tho carrying: out
of a rell-dcfined Idea.

Is the bringing up of supplies of food
