Louisiana I er News hi From all corners at of the great State t Estimate 80,000,000 Bushels Corn. New Orleans.-The biggest corn t crop in history is getting ready to move in Louisiana. The question of a market, which has been worrying b some of the big growers, is partially hi solved through the agreement of a a New Orleans exporter to take several million bushels at the September op- w tion, which is about 65 cents. St. Louis banks will furnish some of the money for moving the crops. These arrangements have been made through tH the state publicity commission. e Southern Pacific officials estimate the Louisiana corn crop this year at 80,000,010 bushels. Others put the es- ai timate 10.000,000 lower, but statistics are united on the point that the crop di will be in excess of 60,000.000. The is crop will sum up $40,000,000 or $50, ti 000,000 as a value at any rate. Louis iana made its corn-growing record in 1910, with a crop of 53,000.000 bushels.
