I The Hay Harvest. The London Daily Telegraph gives the harvest prospects in various Englioli couuties. From the I list we cull the following:- DEVONSHIRE. Drought has played sad havoc in this county. Most districts have suffered very severely from the absence of rain, and especially is this the case where sharp gravellv soils obtain. Grass was for a long time backward, and only recent thunder showers have saved thing". However, the fall has been local and very unequal, and the hay crop will, therefore, be light. GLOUCESTERSHIRE. I In consequence of the diought there is reason for fearing that the hay crops in many districts of Gloucestershire will be very poor indeed. Evidence as to this is especially strong on farms in the neighbourhood of the Cotswold Hills, where the soil is very thin and dry. In the vale of the Severn, however, the crop of young grass is much healthier. HEREFORDSHIRE. I Herefordshire is a much more favoured county than many others, inasmuch as it is well watered and enjoys a fairly good rainfall. During the past six weeks of excessively dry weather, there have been a few general downpours, and several local showers besides, but, notwithstanding this, the agricultural prospect is not cheering. Hay is exceedingly light, and much below the average, except in a few favoured localities.
