The ruling opinion amongst farmers is that the years of irregular and out of tune seasons have come to an end, and that the old time fat harvests are about to start. No one, of course, of fers to back this . contention with scientific data. As a matter of fact the prophets, long distance and ofche'r wlse, are at a discount, and their prognostications are not likely to disturb the local wheat growers. It is too early for the expert to issue a forecast—a dozen or so years ahead, and earnestly requesting one and all to dam as hard as possible to con serve the precious fluid.

YVOKLD'S WHEAT CROPS J RECORD AGGREGATE YIELD. It has, been known with a fair de cree of certainty for some tlmo past that the current season's wheat crops of the world in the aggregate easily constitutes a record; although the . exact extent of the increase will not .he definitely determinable until later in the season, when* the actual extent of Russia's supplies will become ap parent after the Black Sea porta are /free from ice. "Beerbohm," of De cember 19, has issued a revised esti mate, based on the latest official and private estimates, of the world's crops. The aggregate total amounts to 498,000,000 qrs., against 463,000,000 qrs. (of which about 20,000,000 qrs. were unfit for Human food) last year, and 436,00,000 qrs. in 1911.
