« FRODSHAM. THE PRICE OF BREAD.—The master bakers here have raised the price of bread half-penny a 41b. loaf. A FARMER'S SUDDEN DEATH.—On Thursday, at the Travellers' Inn, Five Crosses, near Frodsham, Mr. Bate, the district coroner, held an inquest on the body of William Hoose, farmer, of Newton, who as stated in our inner pages, died suddenly in a field in Townfield- lane, Overton, on Tuesday night. Richard Fletcher, labourer, said deceased apparently appeared in his usual health on the nig-ht in question, and about 7.15 went into another field close to to look after the horses. As he was away a long time for such a short journey, witness went to ascertain the cause, and found him lying dead. A verdict of Death from heart disease' was returned. THE HARVEST.—Farmers here are in the midst of an unusually busy corn harvest, which is, on the whole, above the average. The length of straw has, during the last few weeks, improved beyond all expectations. Turnips, and, in fact, all root crops, now look exceedingly well, having benefited largely by the copious showers of the past fortnight. Apples and pears are, with few exceptions, very scarce, notwithstanding the fine show of bloom in the spring, and of stone fruit there is practically none. One large Frodsham farmer, who has extensive land near Ellesmere Port, has about 350 tons of hay in splendid condition to get in yet, which will, granted even fine weather, take him more than a month. He evidently believes that to get good work his labourers must be housed and fed in a proper manner, and has, therefore, wisely pro- vided accommodation for them on the scene of action. Besides paying them an average wage, he is boarding and lodging them in well-fitted huts, free of expense.
