FEAR CROPS WILL FAIL
XEEI) FOR RAIX EXTREME.
Truck Gardeners Especially Talk of
Th* weather ha* h«»en *<> <Ir> for nearly a
month that market gardeners all around this
cltr ir* beginning to s>ar th* eraaa will fall.
For nearly a month there ha? been extremely
little rain, and the soil is dried ur and parched,
the lawns are. sere, and plants and shrub 6 are
bsckward. and wilted. Seeds have not come «P
and many that did sprout have been killed by
■>i hot sun. Farmere. seeing no chance af an
early crop, have put In fresh seeds, hoping the
ram will fall in time to rai.-- pome F^t corn,
tomatoes and lst«» vegetables.
Long iamaal truck garden men are in despair. |
Th?y say peas came tip we.l and thrived early
lastmonth. but are now dying for lack of amtaT.
P»t&to«* and corn are also sadly in need of
moisture. Th* same complaint comes from the
email farmers in New-Jersey tributary to this i
market. Strawberries are: greatly in need ef a i
atamt, and unless the raspberry and blackbt-rry i
boshes get a good drenching soon there may ;
not be fruit enough to pay f-»r the picking. |
Even the foliage on the trees is showing the ef- J
feet of the drouth. The leaves are small and J
pinched, and many trees are ammmi as= bare as j
in winter. All they need, though, is a good, ;
brisk shower, to unfold the bursting buds and j
■■var th* branch** with preen. . j

shrub* that should be in full flower now have :
very few blossoms. If the drouth lasts much !
longer, it is feared the insects will get the up- j
per hand, and strip the elms and the maples of
what foliage they have.
jjatiiiiilisl to the record at the Weather Bu
reau, the last rain in April fell on the 17th.
On May 3. 4 and 5 thsre were little drizzles,
but they barely wet the surface of the ground.
They did some good, hoy.ever. but not a drop
has fallen since.
The rainfall in March and April was below
normal. Last month 2.SS inches fell, against
3.-.1 a year agro. The normal Is 3.3S inches. In
March the fall was 3.0 T. inches against 4.^.

any change in the next twenty-four hours. Bu
