I have felt It my dutj to decline to comply with this request so long as the national government re quires their services. The splendid pa triotism which prompted their voluntarj enlistment will sustain them in an) perils or hardships they may be called on to endure, but the lives of her sons are precious In the eyes of the common wealth, as I am well assured they an to you, to whom the fortunes of out arms have been competently entrusted; and I have the honor urgently to request that whether in camp, In garrison, or on transports these lives may be tenderly guarded by every precaution In clothing, food and medical attendance which science may suggest.

The weather the past week was very warm and sultry, with, however, more sunshine and less mois ture than during the preceding week. The general conditions have favored ag ricultural pursuits, and farm Industries have progressed accordingly. Advan tage was taken of these conditions to finish the harvesting of over-ripe grain, securing the second crop of hay, cutting tobacco and to further general work, Vihicli lugged during the wet weather. The precipitation was by far the light est for several weeks, yet the only com plaint of drought is from Maine, where wells and springs are falling, streams running low, and pastures and meadows drying. Good weather has favored the harvest ing of grain, which has advanced rapid ly, with the end in view, The securing of buckwheat Is at its height. The crcp is reported as good, and in many sections large. Reports are unanimous in favor of a large corn crop. Sweet corn is being canned In large quantities, and the field variety is being picked and tho stalks cut, especially in southern sections. Fall ploughing and seeding are In progress. At Hawleyville, Conn., re-seeding will be required, due to dry weather in June. The present con ditions presage successful operations In fall farming. . Much grass, mostly second crop, has been secured during the week, itowen is unusually large, In many suctions almost equal to the first crop. Hunga rian gross Is also good and secured In good condition. Apples continue to Improve In color and quality. In scattered sections the yield will be large, though the crop will average very light. Pears, plums, peaches and grapes are uneven In quality and quantity. The weather has Im proved cranberries, though less than an average crop Is Indicated. Dr. Fischer of Fltchburg reports fruit . Ipenlng seven days later than the average for 42 years and two days later than in 1897. While there is more or less complaint of rot and rust In potatoes, the crop will be fully up to the average. Digging Is In progress in many sections. Garden vegetables continue abundant, but to matoes fall to ripen properly In many fields. In the southern states celery is nearly ready for the market. Beans, onions and vines are generally satisfac tory. Tobacco Is probably three-fourths harvested and In good condition. Cor respondents at Leeds, Mass., state that the crop Is as good as ever grown In that vicinity. In the neighborhood of West Slmsbury, Conn., the crop Is the best for eight years.
