The season is fully two Weeks ahead of the ordinary all alotiif'tue line. Small grains never were gotten in in better shape, and seldom at this season have they made sucli a sho.v. The stand is excellent and perfectly even. Grass is far ahead of the usual, Apple, plum and cherry trees Were in full bloom on Sunday. In the woods the trees are putting forth their foliage, and in a few days there will,.,be a full shade. There all the spring flowers are in bloom, the margin between the earliest and the latest being very slight. The Hepatica hardly disappeared before the whole troupe of fragrant blossoms carpeted the earth. Blood Boot, Anemone, Dutchman's Breeches, Tiolets, Adder Tongues and Sweet Williams are all present in profusion. The need of rain has been seriously felt, but it came in abundance Sunday night, and 'we have seldom had a more growing time. With present conditions con- tininng we shall have an early corn planting. '.• ,'iTHE STATE REPORT.
