The intense hot weatber is maturing the seed fairly rapidly, and in many places growers expect to be cutting at the end of tbe week.

In Pigeon Bay they expect to stait] cutting on the lower flats on Monday next. Some people bold the seed is not so matured as a first glance would lead one to suppose, and tbat tbe stalks are brown and dried up, though the seed is not ripe.
