William Fl.vnn Wn. Killed by n Dion
on the Head, but There In No
Manchester, May 21. The mystery
which surrounds the death of William
Flynn. whose body was found two
weeks ago on a ledge of rocks below
the falls at Manchester Center, seems
farther from solution than It appeared
before the hearing which, rather than
discovering the culprit, tended to clear
the man on whom suspicion had fallen.
That it Is a clear case, of foul play is
evident ftom the position and char
acter of the wounds on the head, tho
one n deep gash and tho other a
crushing of the check bone, and the
position in which the body was found,
too far out in the stream for a man to
jump or fall. Tho post mortem show
ed there- was no water In the. lungs,
and that death was duo to n blow on
the head, administered In some un
known maniicr. The authorities arc
still at work on tho case.

Roston, May 24. The weekly bulletin of
the. New" England section of the cilmato
nnd crop service of the weather bureau
says: Cool,, unseasonable weather, at
tended by high winds, frequent showers
find a marked deficiency of sunshine, has
prevailed over tho entire New England
district tho past week. Precipitation on
several days In northern sections assumed
the form of sleet and snow. Hall was tc
ported from several localities In central
portions, and In southern and const sect
tlons fog and misty conditions were prev
alent the first half of the week. Taken ns
a whole, tho weather of the week has
been very unfavorable for general plant
growth nnd farm work. Tho week has
been cold und unpleasant In all sections,
semi-wintry conditions prevailing on sev
eral days In northern localities. Frost wns
reporlrel from the northern and some central-western
portions on the. 19th, li'tli, 21st
nnd 22nd, the surface! of tho ground being
frozen quite hnrd In pDccs tho mornings
of the 20th and 2ind. Precipitation was
Utilto general over the entire district on
the 15th, 1Ub, 17th, lSth end 19th, copious
showets falling in central and northern
coast sections, while in interior and
southern sections fre .ucnt but small
amounts were remidcd. Thunder showers
prevailed In northern lo..'ulltles on the 15th
and in central poitlons on the ICth, 17th
and ISt Ii, in several itnt.inecs being ac
companied by hall on the St It In portion
of Massachusetts. Sleet .mil snow were
reported fiom northern section-? on the
I'.tli and Ulh. nnd from central-western
portions 011 the 2ulh.
CONDITION OP 1 ROPS.
The cold and uns.rasonublo conditions of
the pa-t week have retarded the advance
of all crops, and Hold work especially in
northern sections, has pi.ictloully been at
a standstill. The geiier.,1 rains lu the
extreme northern and .'csterii portions
have somewhat relieved t ic droughty con
ditions of the past six v -eks, and present
prospects arc very bripln for tho near
completion of plowing, pUntlng and sow
ing. The recent cool in.il has tendeel to
pinmote root spreading and tho thicken
ing of grass and stnolitiR- of grain, thin
making the outlook for j'd harvests of
both hay ami grain most jninlslng. Sun
shine and warmth is w!!'- 's now most
needed to piomote vegeftai(,in.
Grain In central portion corn planting
has begun, while in sontivern sections it
Is somewhat backward, l,Ang delayed by
the cool and stormy weatAr. In northern
sections tile laud is neai Bread)', but the
ground is still too cold ijf planting. Some
corresponeients report llHearl.v-planted
torn is rot'lng, and th.t considerable
sweet corn was washed .jilt by the ralna
of the week. Early rye s heading gen-j
eially In southern field", ilthough nearly
a Pint less in hught than lu un nvcraga
season. The prospects for a goenl oat
crop in all sections are excellent. Con
siderable sowing yet remains lo bo done
in northern portions.
Grass The majoilty correspondents
are enthusiastic over g' .as and hay pros
pects, stating generally 'bat the outlook
for a good crop n nueo favorable than
for several seasons past. Cattle aro be
ing turned info pasturrs in all parts of
tin district, and where grazing lauds have
been backward on account of a lack of
moisture, they have recuperated rapidly
and are now furnishing abundant fed.
In several instances winter rye lias ad
vanced far enough to he cut for fodder
In northern sections t' e long-continued
cold has killed out some newly. seeded
Fruit Tho Mosromlng period, except
apples. Is about over in the southern sec
tions, and prospects of bountiful harvests
are excellent. Apple trees are not bloss
oming ns freely as last year, but reports
state them to be very full for the "off
year." All fruits are In blossom In ceu.
tral portions, and buds are coming on
slowly in more northerly sections. Sev
eral 1 iirrospoudcnts state that lenf blight
has appeared on pear tiees, and the tent
caterpillar has been discovered in south
ern orchards Of small fruits more winter-killing
is noted than was at first ap
parent of grape vines and berry canes,
more especially of the blackberry. Rasp
berries and currents are budded full. Re
cent frosts have tllghtly damaged ninny
strawberry beds, Cranberry vines report
ed last week us being badly winter-killed
are not thought to be permanently in
jured, although a much smaller harvest
than that of last year Is looked for.
Vegetables Potatoes and corn are ad
vancing rapidly and receiving their first
hoeing In the more southerly portions. In
central sections conditions nre not bo far
advanced, though potato planting is about
linlshed and early peas have been hoed.
Gardens have not been completed In the
northern portions. Cutworm havo invad
ed gardens and cold frames In central
sections, and have done considerable dam
age more especially to asparagus. The
hall of the 15lli slightly damaged many
gardens. Strawberry beds aro In blossom
lu southern localities and ulso seed tur
nips. Tobacco -Tobacco plants need warmth
and sunshine. Some beds uru being plow
ed lor transplanting and many acres
have already been set. Nearly all grow
01 s expect to have a much larger acre-ug.-
than last year.
