Pcpt. 2G.?Following is the Weather Bureau's weekly summary of crop conditions: No rain having fallen over a large part of the Southern StaUs, the droughty conditions of the prcvloua week continue In that section. Rain is also needed over portions of Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska and In the Southern Rocky Mountain region. Throughout the central and northern portions of the country and on the Pacific Coast the weather conditions have been gen? erally favorable for maturing crops and for farm work. Except over portions of Pinar del Rio, Havana and Santa Clara provinces, much needed and copious general rains have fallen in Cuba, prov? ing of inestimable value to all crops and putting the soil in excellent condition for planting. The corn crop h.a.? experienced gene? rally favorable weather conditions dur? ing the week. In the States of the Ohio Valley and Lake Region a large part of the crop is cut, and come husk? ing has been done As previously stated, the reports indicate that late corn has failed to develop well In the Central Valleys and Southern States. The absence of rain on the Pacific Coast has been favorable for the com? pletion of grain hxrvet and for thrash? ing In Washington and Oregon, where the reports contlniipd to ?hmv ih^t thn damage from August rains is much less thnn was expected. Under favorable weather conditions cnlton picking has made rapid progress. Nearly the whole of the crop Is open, and the bulk has bepn gathered over a large part of the cotton region. The marked features of this season's crop are premature opening, early Brather? ing, and a very short top crop, the latter In some sections being a com? plete fnilttre. The tobacco crop has been cut and housed, except over limited areas In Virginia and North Carolina, where cuttlner will be completed by October 1st. The weather of the past week has been generally favorable for curing. Exccllont progress has been made during the week with plowlnsr and fall seeding In the Ohio Valley. Middle At? lantic States and New England, but erenerally throughout the Southern Ptntes and In the Unper Mississippi Valley the ?oil has been ton dry, and slow profn-pcM with thin work bns heen made. In the Ohio Valley and Middle Atlantic States early sown grain Is germlnatirrr finely. Note.?This is the last weekly Issue of the climate ?nil crop buPelip for the season of 1S99.
