May 19, says: The first half of the
week was cool and wet, with excess of
cloudiness the last half much warmer,
with heavy local showers In northern
and central districts. The average tem
pcratu re was somewhat above the nor
mal. Conditions were highly beneficial
to small grain and grass, especially in
sections where the rainfall waB abun
dant but there was considerable delay
in corn planting operations. Thework,
however, is well advanced in the larger
part of the state, and In early planted
fields a fair stand has been secured and
cultivation Is in progress. The reports
show about tbe usual amount of dam
age to corn by cut worms and wire
worms, and some replanting will be
necessitated. The early potato crop is
very promising, and garden truck gener
ally is well advanced. The ideal con
dition of the soil and subsoil is tbe most
encouraging feature of the crop situa
tion, and preparation for seeding and
planting has been unusually thorough,
Tbe orchard fruits give fair promise.
