Is it hot enough for you ? This
was a question that was f requntly
heard on our streets during the
past week. Although the mercury
was quite ambitious , yet according
to the record at the weather bu
reau it did not climb above 98 on
Monday , the hottest clay of the
season. However there were sev
eral clays when it appeared to have
reached a higher point. People
generally suffered and wondered
when the weather man was going
to shut off the hot air. Nearly
everybody was grumbling and per
spiring. The only ones satisfied
were the manipulators of the soda
water fountains , the ice men and
the farmers. They were looking
pleasant for they were doing a
land office business land the corn
was growing nicely with every
promise of a good yield. The av
erage temperature for the week
was 78 degrees which was 5 de
grees above the normal and while
this is not a record breaker , yet
owing to the great amount of mois
ture in the atmosphere the heat
was very oppressive. The high
est temperature ever recorded
here was 106 which occurred on
the 6th of July 1SS9 and on the
loth Of July 1902.
