an hoar quite high and no doubt tome
damage was done to cotton, which la
very folly open on aandy land. M aay
farmeri are slow In picking cotton: tome

and yet others because of carelessness. .

of Lenoir oonnty, says that on atnety
acres la cotton be madelaat year slaty
II to bales, while this year be will not get
over forty-fire. He says the drought
has so affected hU cotton that then la

the middle of the plants. His cotton Is
so nearly all open that the first picking
Is getting practically all of It,

Weekly Crop BuUetin, 3
The weekly crop bulletin for week and
Ing Monday, September 8th, Is aifol
lows: Frequent showers occurred during the
past week, chiefly on theSd and 4th,
which gave a fairly abundant amount of
moisture along the northern tier of
counties, but were very Irregularly dis
tributed over the central and southern
portions of . the State. . The droughty
character of the season' hu not mate
rially changed, "and crops continue to
suffer from lack of sufficient moisture
over meny counties. Where showers
occurred late crops were revived to some
extent, and field peas, turnips and clover
were benefited. The mean temperature
was'above normal except on the 5th and
6th which were quite cool. Farm work
progresses rapidly, but fall plowing Is
much, behind on account of the refrac
tory condition of the soil. Streams arc
very low and water for stock . Is scarce
In some places. . VyS' fiyr
Cotton has not Improved and will be
far short of an average crop; the bolls
have completed their growth and are
opening very fast, soma prematurely oa
account of rust which. Is very widespread
Picking cotton Is now general and Is ad
vancing mors rapidly. Lata planted
cotton Is - still green and will give a
small top crop. Corn Is practically
made, and Is a very good crop on bot
tom lands, though-sborV on uplands;
much corn . has already beta cut and
placed In shocks. Fodder pulling Is
nearly finished. Making sorghum syrup
has begun. ; Tobacco Is all cured except
In the largot producing counties In the
north from Granville to Surry where
the work Is still In progress with good
results. Minor , crops are fair to good
and can hardly be further Influenced by
weather conditions. Scuppernong grapes
are ripening. Strawberry plants are
