SNOW AND- LIGHT FROSTS Mountainous Regions Receive Wintry Visit-Weather Trifle Cool for Growing Crops. Droughty conditions are prevalent over much of the country west of the main divide; to the east of this gen eral rains fell on the 23rd and 24th, being unusually heavy in some of the southern counties, says Section Di rector Young in his weekly crop bul letin for the week ending June 27. There was a heavy fall 'of snow on the higher mountain ranges and from one to three inches in some of the valleys. The temperature was quite avorable to crop growth till the 23rd to 25th, when a cool change came, giving light frosts in the western counties. There are a few localities in the west where the bench ranges are iTying up, but in the principal range country to the east, feed, as a rule, is good and in many places excellent. Alfalfa haying is progressing favor ably. Winter wheat is heading; mead ws will be short in most western counties; oats and spring wheat made air growth; garden vegetables and potatoes retarded by the cool weather, and in some places injured by the frost.
