The Summerless Year.
The year 1810 wns called the "year
without a summer." Spring came that
year, but In Its faintest form. Snow,
cold rains and winds were incessant.
It was tho 1st of June before tho tlrst
left the ground. The farmers planted
their crops, but the seed would hardly
sprout, and when they came to the sur
face there was not heat enough to
make the frail plants grow. It Is re
corded that during the month of June
birds froze to death In the woods and
Holds. Small fruits, such as there
were, rotted on the stem, there being
no birds to eat them. But little corn
matured. Only in sheltered spots wero
good sized roasting ears to be found.
Frosts prevailed every month In the
year and nlmost dally. Tho people
after repeated hopes of n change for
the better settled down almost In de
spair. The like of it was never known
In tho country before and, fortunately,
has never been repeated. New York
