LUCKY ESCAPE FROM .
A BAD ACCIDENT
Ed Mason and Family Were
Dragged on Road When Buggy
Crop Had Reached a Point Where
It Had to Have Rain
Quick or Fail.
Iteginning about midnight last
night and lasting until the early
hours of morning, a rain, general
in extent, fell in southeastern Ne
braska and southwestern Iowa
and undoubtedly saved hundreds
of thousands of acres of corn
from being a total failure.
The amount of rainfall, as
measured at the Burlington depot,
was .81. of an inch. This is not a
big rainfall, but as the rain fell
gradually, much of it had a
chance to soak into the ground.
At many points, perhaps, the
amount of water which fell was
The rain was absolutely neces
sary to save the late corn, ine
corn had tasseled, but there were
no shoots,, and farmers said that
the pollen would be gone in a few
days, and that if the corn was
to be saved the rain must come at
once. There is, of course, much
corn in this vicinity that is al
ready ruined, or will make but a
small average per acre. Farmers
says that much corn has been lost
because of improper cultivation.
The farmers who gave attention
to it and who plowed continually
in order to keep the moisture in
the ground, will have good crops,
while those who neglected their
corn will have small yields. The
rain will also be of great benefit
to pastures and to forage crops.
According to the official weather
records at Omaha, this season,
since March 1, has not been so
dry as the same period in 1910.
On August 2, 1910 the total de
ficiency in rainfall from March
1 was 13.60 inches, while in 1911
for the same period the deficiency
was but 10.07 inches.
