Of course, it Is too early to say what
the harvest will be." eald Mr. Lane, "but
there was never a time at the present
season of the year when the prospects
were as good as now. The acreage Into
small grain Is unusually targe and the
winter wheat Is covering the ground like
an immense carpet. There was plenty of
moisture during the early spring and
everywhere there have been many .heavy
and seasonable rains since. The cold
weather has caused the grain to "stool"
and now it Is aa thick on the ground as
the hairs on a dog's back.

corn, but they are preparing the ground
