After the rains ceased, our farmers worked with a rush as long as conditions were favorable, but the hot rays of Old Sol soon hardened the ground to the extent that it is now quite impossible to plow it where it has not been broken up; and in consequence much land is yet unplanted at this late date — nearly the first of May.
