His flax, "which he expects to run 10 hush- els, will net him 4000 bushels, and Ills barley, which -lie expects to go not less than'30 bushels to the acre, win 9000 bushels, a total crop, in the dryest year since 1492, of JQQ bushels of grain, an average of about 35 bushels to each of the .5000 Not Exceptional This is not an exceptional yield by any means, and it is not iis good as Mr. Noble did last year, .but it Is mighty good considering the amount of rain which J.
