CROPS NOT MATURING. General Opinion nt the Clnic of an Un favorable riiMiiu. Doston, Sept. 23. Tho last bulletin for tho season of tho New England section of the climate and crop ser vile of tho Weather liareau Bni): Fxeopllonally warm weather eharaciei ized tho first part of tho week, follow ed by much lower temperatures, with a general frost on the morning of tho 10th that addded to tho Injury resulting from tlie frosts of the preceding week. Show ers, with high winds, oeeured on the 16th and 17th, the latter causing considerable damage. Extremely high temperatures were the rule tho llrst of tho week, the miximum leadings at some points, tho oer pm degree,, and, at many over W de grees. hlle the minimum of the lath did mil reach the freezing point, the othor v rather conditions were such that a damaging Irost occured in nearly all lo calillen. While precipitation occurred on only two das, tho amounts weru generally close to tho normal, and. In somo In stances, far above, somo heavy fulls be ing reported. CONDITION OF CHOI'S. Crops of nil kinds made good progress the llrst part of tho week, as tho weather was exceptionally favorable for growth, Frost did some damage Saturday night, Considerable corn was laid down by high winds and much fruit blown off. There is a general opinion that many crops will lull le mature. Grain. Aside lrom damage by wind and frost, corn has improved, hut its yield will bo far below the average. Somo of the canning factories have begun operations, estimating that the p.o k will bo about half the Usual amount. Sin. ill grains are about all cut, thoro having been a largo yield of excellent quality. i Irass. Late in the season as It is, Kiine correspondents In the northern sec lions report grass still uncut, not only second crop, but somo llrst. Consider able full seeding has been done, tho holds being in good condition. Pasture iced has. fallen olf somewhat In tho north, that section having received less rain than others. Elsewhere pastures are lurnlshlug bufllclent food. Fruit. The high winds not only blew olf large quantities of fruit, but did ron nler.ible damage to tho tiees, breaking off the small branches. The quality of of what winter apples thero are Is thought to bo good, hut they average small. Cranberries aro nearly gatheied, tho yield apparently being below the uAcrago, Vebetublcs. Gardens hnvo suffered severely fiom frosts of tho past two weeks, Tomatoes, whero not cut clown by tho frost, have ripened rapidly, but It Is doubtful if tho season will bo long enough to ullow them all to mature. The main part of tho onion crop Is out of tliu ground and Is below tho average, there being many culls, In addition to the fact that tho yield was lessened by tho ravages of tho maggot. Lute potat oes that wero unsprayed are rotting bad ly, not only In tho ground, hut In tho cellar. Where precautionary moasiucs were taken, there Is a good yield of ex cellent quality. Root rrops are growing well and will probably bo up to tho aver age. Tobacco. Tobacco Is practically all under rover now, and growers are gen erally well satisfied with Its nppoar nncr Early hi Iho season tho prospect v i-. very dlu 'Oiuaglng, but the crop has d'Mio reiuaikaby well under the clrciuii siiincri and, while not perfectly Hatls fietory In all respects. Is probubly an average uiio. GROSS 11 South Northfield Woman tho Vic tim of Man's Brutal Passions. SHE NAMES HER ASSAILANT One Adrlliert .Martin, Formerly nf Calais, In Charged vtltli llelnoiii Crime .Mr. Slrplion Trembler, mi Indliitrlnui Woman, Mill S imiatliy of Ciiiiiiiiiiully. Northfield, Sept. 2J. Morality and com mon decency were grossly outraged at South Northlleld last night by one of tho rankest assaults ever committed with in tho borders of the old town ut Nurth lield. Mrs. Stephen Tromblcc, who lives near the highway and hut ,i comparatively short distance from neighbors, was keep ing house alone nobody being with her but her the year old daughter. At about midnight she was awukene 1 by a man placing his hands upon her person. Shu screamed and tried to rise hut was lor clbly held back by her assailant, 'then, followed a struggle through whicn prob ably few woman would survive. With all the power at his command tho wretch strove to accomplish his foul purpose. Maddened, he then seized a club and struck his victim over the head rend ering her Insensible. Ho next belabored the daughter who was awakened by the disturb nice iniid with threats supple monted by blows, stopped her cries. Ho then it appears left the house A SECOND ATTACK. In time Mrs. Tromblee recovered con sciousness; going to a window she s reamed and cried for help, but tho only response she received was the volco of her assailant from the yntd threaten ing h"i' with death If she made further outcry. Firnzird, she only s.Teamed tho louder, lie then returned to the house and another stiuggle ensued, terminating In Ills leaving her in a senseless condition coveted with bruises and blood. In the early morning, before It was light, shu ngaiu reiovered and In her faint and weak condition, with her Utiles daughter's assistance, succeeded (she don't know how) in wheeling tho bed up against tho door and bai Heading it witli other mov ables. She had barely completed these ar rangements when her tormentor appear ed again, lull was unable to force an en trance. Wayne Denny, the 14-ycar-old son of Mr. and Mrs. George Denny, was passing that way shortly alter daylight. He heaid the sound of moans and sobs com ing from the Tromblee house, and, sus pecting that something was amiss, forced his way Into the house. He found Mrs. Tronililee in a semi-conscious slate, lying on the Hour In a pool of blood, her hair matted with blond, and blood spatteied over the iloor, furniture and bed. He called assistance and with medical aid she recovered consciousness after a time. Her wrists wero loimd to lie literally blN teied wheie she had struggled to escape lrom the midnight villain. R ECOG N I A E D ASSA1 DA NT. Mrs. Tromblee Is a subject for double, sympathy. Her husband is now in tho Washington county jail awaiting trial on a charge of felonious assault. She Is a woman of good reputation and character and has the sincere sympathy of the whole public. She stated jostciday thai she positively recognized the assailant as ono Adelbert Martin and that she, knew his voice. The case was placed In Olllecr J. A. Hutchinson's hands early In tho morn ing and after notifying ollleers In tho county to be on the lookout. He slartod with a number of citizens and began a thorough nnd systematic search for Mr. Martin, but up lo one o'clock he had not boon located. Public Indignation sel dom runs higher nor finds more violent expression than it has to-day, espe cially at South Northlleld where the out rage was committed. Somo have exptess ed a fear that, if loiind, Maitin world be summarily dealt with, but It is prnlublo tho still dy common sense of tho people will carry the balance of power and that If taken, the full justice of tho law will be allowed, SOMETHING ADOPT MARTIN. This Adelbert Martin, who is accused by Mis. I'roniblee, is the son nf James Mar tin of Calais, and Is believed to bo a native of that town. Several years since it is refuted he skipped the country to escape arrest for participation in a drunken affray, which was more in tin nature of disoiderly conduct than moro serious crime. His first recorded appearance In North held was last winter, when ho hired a hall and caused somo advertising matter to bo distributed announcing that ho would speak on his tiavcls. Only two small boys who passed bills, appeared, and ho did not tell about his travels and Inti mated that Northlleld peoplo did not seem paiticularly anxious to bo better Informed. It is reported of lale ho has told vari ous stories of his occupation announcing himself as an agent of tho Anti-Saloon League, a detectivo employed by a pri vate! agency nnd as a seller of farm ma chinery in exchange for bran sacks nnd other material. Some have questioned If ho did not havo "wheels," as Is tho slang expression denoting a person somowliat eccentric. He had called at the Tromblee house and had Mrs. Tromblee do somo washing for him at ono time. Uist evening he was wen about tho streets of this village and rumor has It that ho had apparently been drinking. The case goes on record as even worse than tho negro assault of a few years since when a negro giving the name of Osburno broke Into a woman's houso and attempted an assault, was arrested the following day and sentenced by county court to 20 years in Stato prison. Tho warrants against Martin accuse him of assault with a dangerous weapon wltli Intel. t to kill. Mrs. Tromblee was convoyed to Mnnt peller on the afternoon train to appear beforo tho grand Jmy.
