England, experienced more favorable tem

leys and portions of the lake region and
middle Atlantic states.
Drouth continues with increasing severity
over a large part of the central and gulf
districts, and rain Is much needed In the
north Atlantic states, where the week has
been unusually warm, with showers over
limited areas only.
The east has experienced a week of very
favorable temeperatnres, with scattered
showers and more than usual cloudiness.
conditions favorable to the conservation of
the abundant rainfall of the previous week.
The Rocky mountain plateau and North
Pacific coast districts have experienced a
week of remarkably low temperature, with
unusual precipitation, much In the form of
snow in the northern districts, and general
frosts and freezing temperatures In Ne
vada and Utah. On the north Pacific coast
the week was too cool and wet, but In Cali
fornia the conditions were geenrally favor
able. Improvement In Corn Condition.
Under highly favorable temperatures
there has been a general Improvement In
the condition of corn throughout the central
valleys, .and the outlook for this crop In
tne principal corn states Is encouraging, al
though In the states of the Missouri valley
It has suffered considerably from lack of
cultivation, due to excessive moisture. In
Kansas the bulk of the crop Is laid by and
much Is silking and earing-, la Nebraska

In years; In Arksnsas, Tennessee, the Ohio
valley and the lake region the general out

very poor crop Is Indicated, and In portions
of the central gulf districts the early

Bnd Wenther for Harvestlna;.
The unfavorable harvest weather of the
previous week In the states of the lower
Missouri -valley continued during the last
week, although harvesting of winter wheat
la now practically finished In that section."
Some damage to grain In chock and stack Is
reported from Illinois, Missouri and Ne
braska. Harvesting has continued In the
Ohio valley under generally favorable con
ditions, is practically finished over the
southern portion of the middle Atlantic
states and has been doing well In the lake
region. On the north Pacific coast lodging
is extensively reported and harvest will be
later than usual, but the general outlook
continues favorable. Harvesting continues
under favorable conditions In California.
Sprtns; Wheat Is Promising.
Spring wheat has experienced no unfav
orable conditions during the week. The
general outlook tor the crop is generally
very promising. Harvesting of oats Is in
progress in the lower Missouri valley,
Tennessee and middle Atlantic states, and
the crop is ripening in the Ohio valley,
good yields being reported. In portions of
the Missouri and Ohio vallejrs and upper
lake region considerable lodging Is re
ported, but the general condition of the
crop Is promising.
Cotton Crop Deterlorntes.
With showers over local areas only and
very' high temperatures, the cotton crop
over much the greater portion of the cen
tral and eastern districts of the cotton belt
has materially deteriorated, and all over
the southern portion of the districts named,
although considering the size of the plant
It Is fruiting well and Is generally clean.
In Tennessee, extreme northern Missis

Indian Territory the crop continues in
promising condition, although it Is need
ing cultivation and making too much weed
In portions of Arksnsas. In Texas cotton

It is at a standstill. While the plant is
