Many factors enter into making a Low wheat condition figure at this time. To begin with the crop was seeded exceptionally late and in Many instances poor seed was used. The Winter has been very severe. Little Snow covering and several blizzards during the latter part with exceptionally High winds doing great damage on Sand ridges Black soil and High Clay knobs where the Earth was literally blown from around the roots of the Plant. Notwithstanding the severe cold reports of quot heaving quot Are very few neither is damage by hessian Fly reported to any extent.

The Rye crop is not in As Good condition As usual and much of it will be slowed under As fertilizer. The same conditions that injured the wheat has affected the Rye. The High percentage of mortality among live Stock is due to the severe Winter and insufficient feed. There seems to be about As Many Brood sows As last year although the High Price and Scarcity of feed has caused Many of them to be sold. Geo. C. Bryant Field agent. 0 m.
