Record of This Year , Up to Date , IB
19.85 Inches The Year 1902 Holds
the High Mark , But May bo Ex
ceeded June Not so Wet.
uesday's Dally. ]
Whllo Juno has appeared to bo an
unusually wet month , It Is the Inher
itance of the months thnt have pre
ceded It thnt have made It so , nnd
with only the precipitation of the
month there would hnvo been no OX-
COSH of surface water on hand.
The June precipitation this year , with
only two days more to hear from was
I ! . OH Inches , which , however , brings
the total for the year almost up to
the average. It wns the May rainfall
of 9.88 Inches that did the business
and with that of June has kept the
ground In a constantly soaked condi
tion nnd detrimental to the crops and
the progress of other out door em
.Some Interesting statistics have
been given by the local station of the
government weather nnd crop ser
vice. It Is shown that the yearly pre
cipitation averages 22 Inches , and
that the total precipitation for the
first six months of the year has near
ly attained that average , the rainfall
since January 1 , to date being 19.85
Inches. The last half of the year will
assuredly bring It up high above the
general yearly average.
The rainfall for last year was 20.09
Inches , but the record rainfall wns In
1902 , jvhon 31.23 Inches was the showIng -
Ing In 1898 the rainfall was light ,
the yearly precipitation coming be
low fie average , the exact figure be
ing IS. 88 Inches.
The precipitation thus far this year
has been as follows :
January . 94
February . 72
March . 85
April . 3.83
May . 9.88
Juno , to date . 3.G3
It is quite probable Hint there will
bo several more Inches added to the
record during the next couple of
weeks and then some warm and dry
weather may be experienced. Tills
is the usual thing and It will he re
quired to fini&h up the crops proper
ly. In spite of the apparent excess
of surface water at this time U may
he noted that it Is gradually draining ,
nnd unless the early part of July
conies on with an excessive rainfall
the surface water will soon have rtis-
appeaied and normal conditions fa
vorable to the developing of crops will
have been restored. There has been
a lack in warmth , the temperature be-
inn ; below normal , and another thing
contributing to the backwardness of
the crops has been the cloudy weath
er. For weeks at a tlmo , this spring ,
the sun has been obscured by clouds ,
hut there are bright days coming and
it may be that in another week the
people who are now shivering and
longing for a sight of the sun will be
wishing for clouds and lower temper
