day: "There will not be so much
complaint this fall as there was a
year ago about the high cost of living

and dry summer have become cool
by reverting to the summer of 1901,

braska City, a young German farm
hand died in a harvest field at Os
mond, one man died at Pierce, and
the thermometer all over the middle
west broke records. The heat was
famous on account of its long dura
tion, the thermomenter registering
more than 100 for a month or more.
The following proclamation was 1s
Bued by the governor:
