GREAT HEAT IN AMERICA.
FARM WORK ALMOST ABANDONED. July 24, 1901
The heat in many of the states of America is again abnormally severe, and the sultry weather is having serious effects upon the health of the people. The shade temperature ranges from 105 deg. to 111 deg. Farm work has been largely abandoned. Vegetables are selling at fancy prices, and consequently poor people are living on canned fruit and vegetables, which are obtain- able at cheaper rates.London, July 25. Telegrams from New York state that owing to the abnormal heat 32 persons died at St. Louis on Tuesday and 40 on Wednesday. The prospects for the harvest in the western states are seriously affected owing to the heat shriveling up the grain.
