WASHINGTON, Feb. 4.—The weather crop bulletin for January says that there was no snow on the ground at ;he close of the month, over the entire winter wheat belt extending- from Tennessee northward,to the lakes, and rom Ohio to Kansas, and although the weather during- the month was owing 1 ,o the uniformly hig-h temperature generally favorable to the growing Tops, the approaching- cold wave and attending decided freeze- leave its condition uncertain.
