Following in the crop report for
week ending June 25th :
Over the greater portion of the
Eastern Section the rainfall for the
week was excessive, interrupting
farm work, such as plowing and cul
tivating, and harvesting of hay and
wheat, and also damaging some low
laud crops by overflow ; while in
the Middle and Western Sections
clear skies prevailed almost every
day. The last two days of the week
were also fair in the East. The
weather was warm in all sections
during the entire week, with unus
ually high temperature the last three
days. In the Middle and Western
Sections the cutting of wheat, hay
and clover progressed rapidly and
under the most favorable condition?;
a large portion of the wheat' is in
shock, some of it threshed, and ex
pectations of a good crop" will gen
erally be realized, while in some
sections the crop will no doubt prove
exceptionally fine. Much clover
and other hay was saved in flue condition.
