The past week although a trifle cooler than normal, was the best growing week yet this season. With the exception of light frosts in some localities on the 3rd and 4th, the weather was warmer than it has been, and very favorable for vegetable growth. Light showers occurred on thc st, 2nd and 4th. ".l'lm rainfall, although of small amount, was very beneficial to wheat and grasses in the eastern counties, where it was badly needcd.' Late- sown wheat was brought u I) by the rain, and 1)oth winter and early spring wheat greatly improved. It was a week of favorable weather for tilling the soil, and the usual spring work is now finished or well advanced. Seeding was comlfletcd last week, and most of the summcr-fallow plowing is now finished. Potato planting is done, except on the low lands. Gardening is general Corn planting is in progress in Klickitat County. Sugar-beets are beinff sown in Spokanc County." Hops are now being trained in Yakima County. :Extracts from Reports of Correspondents. Lower Sound: l)eming--Growth rapid; gar- dens being rel)lanted.
