Excerpt from The Gardeners' Chronicle, Vol. 26: A Weekly Illustrated Journal; July to December, 1899
Bnocsu. Park.-we are informed that at the last meeting of the Lambeth Vestry, it was unanimously resolved, it being understood that a piece of land adjoining Brockwell Park is about to be developed for building purposes, that the London County Council should acquire the same for the purpose Of enlarging the park for the use of the public. This plot is a fine piece of wooded-land, running from Dulwich Road to the old English gardens. It was noted that Lord Rosebery, in opening the park, remarked that it was a pity such a fine bit of land was permitted to remain in private hands. It now remains for the London County Council to take the necessary action - aided by the vestries on the Surrey side of the water.
Crops m rue united statsa - From the report for May Of the u.s. Department of Agri culture, we learn concerning winter Wheat that the average winter crop is about acres, showing a fall (owing to winter killing) equal to but exceeding by acres, the area of winter Wheat harvested last year. The average condition is 762, as compared with 865 on May 1 last year, or 802 at the corresponding date in 1897. Concerning winter Rye, the average condition is 852, as compared with 849 one month previously, and on May 1, 1898. Cotton indications point to a reduced average, but the acreage taken from Cotton is placed to the credit of food-producing crops suited to the various localities.
