Hay, grain, garden truck and pasture
lands are burning up. Some crops are
already totally ruined, while othors are
damaged nt least one-third.
The formers say that garden truck
and liny are hit the hardest, in some
Instnnces the pea crop Is n total Ions.
Hay in Pennsylvania and New Jersey
has already been damaged one-third. A
few farmers oxpect only a hnlf crop.
Pasture land In some sections Is vir
tually useless for grazing nnd farmers
have been obliged to turn rattle into
the .fields.
Potatoes are drying up. Mnny grow
ers tay they will be fortunate if they
get enough out of their crops for seed
purposes next year. Markets are al
ready feeling the effect of the drought.
Conditions at Lancaster
W. W. Hurley, Lancaster, president
of the BuckB County Farm Bureau,
nnd owner of a inrgc farm, snid: "My
crops are in bad shape. Peas, beans,
tomntoei, onts, hay nnd other grain
arc burning up. My pen crop Is al
ready ruined.
"Ordinarily I cut about seventy-five
tons of hay. The crop Is already dam
aged one-tnlrd. Iottuco and corn nre
nenrly ruined. My loss will be between
?5000 and 50000 unless we get a heavy
rain Inside of two weeks."
Hard on Cattle Men
Cattle farms with pedigreed Hoi
steins are hard hit and where land is
under cultivation In nddltion. arc suf
fering doubly, according to Clement H.
Congdon, wild has a 100-acre farm nenr
"On my farm," Mr. Gongdon snid.
"two of the wells have gone dry. In
the pasture land, which would ordln
arlly feed the seventy Holstclns I have,
the grass has been burned through the
lHok of rnin-
"I've had to turn my cattle into
fourteen acres of perfectly good liny
which I would otherwise cut and use.
That means I nin not only losing now,
but will have to buy hay next spring.
"Some of tho farmers near here are
suffering terrific losses to their corn
crops. And others nre rosing on those
products which need large nuantities
of moisture. Farms raising tomatoes
and potatoes and produce of that char
acter may suffer a total loss unless we
have rain soon."
Farmers through South Jersey arc
not suffering quite ns much as those in
Pennsylvania, according to E. A.
Mechllng. of Mcchling Brothers Manu
facturing Co.. Camden, nnd who has
fnrms nenr Moorcstown.
Big Lou In Hay
"Peas, beans and potatoes are af
fected most," Mr. Mechliug said. "The
pea crop may be a total loss. Some
farmers don't expect to get more thnn
their seeds from the potato fields.
"We've just finished harvesting our
hay nt a loss of about ona-tliird the
total crop. I think that applies to
nearly all the farmers in Burlington
"About two-thirds of my land, 130
acres in one place nnd sixty acres in
another, is planted in orchnrds nnd ber
