Last year prime hay was selling for $28 a ton and now the price is $20. (Note - Just 22 days after the heavy frost, July 1, 1913 was the hottest day in the prior two years. The Warrensburgh News thermometer registered 93 degrees but in other parts of the village it soared to 100. Back in July 1911, the hot spell only rose to 96 degrees.
