A month ago the general condition wms
8.5 per cent, above the 10-year average.
Today it is 10.3 per cent, above the
ten year average.
The acreage of cotton this year is
about 85,000,000, allowing for a normal
amount of abandonment about 1,000,
000 acres the indications are that ap
proximately 31,000,000 acres of cotton
will be harvested.
"The condition indicates a probable
yield. of 202.8 pounds per acre, which on
37,000.1100 acres, would mean 6,895,.
