Edward F. Smith , secretary of the
agricultural department of the state
of California , in a private telegram
sent to 8. W. Talmadge , of the Mil-

reply to a telegraphic inquiry concern
ing the wheat outlook , says : "From
the latest and best information re
ceived the state will prodnco a full
crop this year , or about 30,000,000
bnsnels. The average is increased
fully 10 per cent over last year ,
which increase fully compensates
for the damage done by

have at least 20,000,000 bushels for
export. An early estimate of 22,000-
000 was made some four weeks ago.
Since that the state has had bountiful
rain and the change in the ontlook of
