Prevails Over the SiateStock Being Driven Mlles tWaterKent- ucky Crop Report The drouth prevailing in nearly all parts of the State is almost unprecedented in severity From nearly every county the cry comes that water is scarce and stock is being driven miles to water In many places the streams springs and cisterns have given out causinga water famine for man as well as beast There is great compliant that nearly all grass seed sown for meadows have perished for want of moisture There is also apprehension that a large part of thowheat rye and winter oat seed will perish from the same cause The early sown grain came up all right but there has not been sufficient moisture in the ground for it to make any progress The grain sown later remains unsprouted in the ground yet It remains to be teen what the effects will be if the drouth continues much longer The corn crop generally in the State is a good one many counties reporting a bump r crop while others report ane dingly short cropThe fcrcn ns not increased as eXt ronly n few counties reportWjCTan increase above an averag while quite a number fall much below The drouthsetting in sit early that it interfered with preparing the land for wheat accounts for the small acreage sown The amount of land seeded to rye is a full average The acreage of winter oats is below the average largely on account of the failure last seasonThe tobacco was savedin good condition Free from frost worm cut and dirt it ought to be a very useful crop While the crop is not a large one anywhere it is reported to be quite a short one in the first add fourth districts Live stock is fully up to the standard in numbers and condi ditions The apple crop for win ter is less than half a crop All things considered the farmer has much to be thankful for and can congratulate himself that it is not worse Mrs Daisy Hancock is in juil at Georgetown charged withattempt ing to burn her husband Dun Hancock to death She says that her husband set
