Not a bumper crop this year. The wheat crop is not so good, as was expected early in the season due to the burning during the last week of much of the spring wheat. The winter wheat is now ready for harvest. G.W. Finney made a trip through the country around Marlin, Ruff and Wheeler and reported that the crops north of Marlin promised the largest yield, some farmers expecting 25 to 28 bushels to the acre. Around Ruff he thought 6 to 12 would be the best that could be expected, while the Odessa vicinity would probably go 10 to 25 bushels.
