Xerv Rnglnnd Crops Are Coaslderahly Relilnd Time. Boston, June 14, The weekly crop bul- li.ltn ttf Ihc Vrw ,llE1nuH aeeftnn nf Ihe - ilmate and crop service of the weather bureau says: Tho weather of tho week haft been quite similar In chatacter to thnt r rPCPnt former weeks, with low night temperatures and cool, unseason able days until Friday, when the day temperatures ranged considerably higher. Frosts were general in many portions uf the three northern States, mornings of tho 7th nnd Silt, and In parts of tho south tho morning of the th. Snow squalls were reported from some of the? higher points in Nw Hampshire and Vermont on the fth. The much-needed rains came curly In the week, and the copious showers have greatly benefited vegetation In nil the New Kngland Stutef. General cloudiness predominated through out the greater part of tho week. CONDITION OF CROPS. Crop conditions luvc greatly Improved during the past week, due in moj.t part, lo the rains which were abundant In all the States, relieving the unusually dry condition of tho soil and giving re newed life and vigor to all growing crops. It Is expected that the planted teed which Ins remained in a dormant Stat'i in many localities will now rapidly ger minate. Many fields have already been replanted owing to the failure of the seed to come up, and, In sonic portion, pota toes t!i.U were planted two months ago arc not sufficiently ndvanced for cultiva tion. Kxeepllng somo delayed or back ward crops and late grain, planting Is completed. All In all. tho season will now average; about two weeks later than usual. Grain. In the southern half of the dis trict rye, wheat and oats, are still In excellent condition and beginning to head generally, although somewhat short er than usual. Many piece" of rye are being cut for forage. Corn Is not doing so well, being held back by the cool weather, and, In central anl northern en, it s now in course or cultivation. , Crows hae pulled up considerable seed I in ninny localities, and cutworms arej to i ported as also doing much damage. rass. -Conee riling the prospects of the hay crop, the general tone of the cor respondents' reports this week is much more fiiMirahle than that of the week before. The rains have greatly revived pastures nnd meadows, and with a. fair amount of precipitation throughout the balance of the month, a very good crop may be looked for. Old fields and mead ows are scmewhat thin, but on stronger nlls the outlouk Is quite encouraging. In the Champlain valley the bay pros pects were never brighter, and from many localities similar reports have been re ceived. In the south clover and Juno gras are beginning to head, and both are much shorter than usual, the latter being about ten inches high, on the aver age, and rather yellow at th bottom. Preparation" are In progress for seeding an unusually large acreage to millet nnd huncarion. Fruit. Fruit prospects remain nbotit the same. All varieties of apple', with the possible exception of Baldwin', aro still In a most promising condition. Peach tree are laden with fruit No reports of damage by Pie late frost" have been received. Apple trees are lust beginning to blossom in oxtieiiic. northern portions. I'ruit has set well in all parts nf the district. Cinkcrworms and brown-tall moths are repeated from several or- eh-irds in Massachusetts, though less than the usual number of caterpillars have been seen this season. Nearly all kinds nf berries were somewhat injured bv Ihe frosts: blueberries, in many places. being killed. In Massachusetts, Rhndi Island mid Connecticut strawberries are beginning to ripen, and. in the. south ern portions of these St.Ues. picking and shipping to market lias begun Worm arc dome much damage to cur, rant bushes. egetnbles. All gardens are very back ward, though vegetables look well and are making fair progress. Karly peas In north-central parts ate now in blossom, and In the cttn-iiie south p'tking has commenced. Potatoes in Aroostook coun ty. Me., are doing well, and the earlier planted are being cultivated: in the soutll they are beginning to blossom. Worms and maggots are doing great Injury to onions and cabbages. Karly sweet corn Is starting well, and, in some gardens, sage Is being cut. The higlt northeast winds and cold rains of the i'th, Tth and Sth, did much injury to early peas, corn and potatoes, on Nantucket Island. Tobacco. Setting is being pushed rap- Idly, with many fielris finished. The dam age wrought by th dry. cold weather, winds and frost, has been repaired by resetting In some fields ns many as three times. In contrast witn last season, plants are very scarce and In great de mand this year. Hoeing has begun In some early pieces, and will be quite gen eral this week, BATTLESHIP VERMONT.
