tion whether they will be transferred

done, unless they are at once ordered

As to the Crop.
The last Nebraska crop bulletin says
that corn has generally deteriorated
in condition and even in the northern
counties. wnere the rainfall has been
sufficient for the corn crop previous to
the last week, the corn is reported as
damaged somewhat during the last
week. The amount of damage in
this section is variously estimated,
some placing it as high as "23 per cent
' and some claiming little or no dam
, age. Much of the early planted corn
has dried out so rapidly that it is har
dened beyond injury by frcst. Late
planted corn is ripening prematurely
and will be a very short crcp generally.
Corn has ripened so very rapidly th?
last three weeks that most of it will
be beyond injury by frost in a week or
ten days. The last week has been fa
vorable for threshing and haymaking.
The wild or native grass is being cut
for hay quite generally and the crop
varies from fair to good, but is above
the average in most sections.

with similar surprises and are feeling
a whole lot better than they did two

St. PrreiWBVBG. Sept. 10. In view

which would gradually germinate and
bear fruit when cirenmstances are
These utterances are regarded as in
dicating, owing particularly to the at
