From the newspaper reports we
notice that in a number of towns in
the ntata last Friday was observed
ad a day of prayer for rain in
compliance with Gov. Savage's
proclamation. \ It is further a
noticeable fact that i > ) all those
places where the day was observed
more or ICMJ rain followed. In
fact ft largo portion of the sta'.o lmt
since been blcpRcd with rain since
last Friday. Nojnoftho churches
of Broken Bow observed the day ,
and we have had no rain.
Since going to press last Thurs
day rain has visited a large area of
the county , and corn in most local *
ities IIUH been improved. On
Thursday evening the precipitation
at Broken Bow was .41 of an inch
Some localities had leas , othoru
more. In the vicinity of Dale , two
iiohes of lainfaH is reported for
Saturday evening. Many farmers
report their corn caring well noi-
willislandlng the extended dry and
hot wrathor. Most fieldc , where
woU cultivated , wil1 make some
corn. The datna by chinch bugs

rounded or' j lining wheat fialds.
Only a portion of those fields arc
destroyed. More rain is necessary
to make eara fill well , but there in a
good growth of stalk and there will
bo Borne corn without any more
rain. The rains over the state the
last few days lias cooled off the
atmosphere very lunturi.illy , which
increases the prospects for , corn.
