Weather and Crops. Barring the late spring and cool weather the seasons this year have been quite favorable for all kinds of crops. Irish potatoes are made and a good yield will be harvested. Corn and cotton are both backward, yet they are now growing nicely and a few more days of such weather as we are now having will make them whoop at the rate of two-forty. Gardens are looking very pretty. All things considered the crop outlook of Union Parish is quite promising.
