The past week, says tha "Ihst Ne
braska, crop bulletin, has been hot and
dry. with an excess of sunshine, and
brisk southerly winds.
The aTerare daily temperature ex
cess varied from 5 degrees in the west
ern ccunliea to somewhat mora than
7 degrees in ths eastern. The dail7
maximum temperatures were above SO
degrees generally on the last three
days of the week and in manyscuthem
counties were above ICO degrees.
sLsted of showers the first day3 of the
week. In most of the southern and in
a few central and northern countis
the rainfall exceeded one-half cf an
Inch and in small areas exceeded an
inch. In a considerable portion of the
state the rainfall was less than one
tenth of an inch and in many places
no measurable amount fell.
The cloudless days and high tem
perature cf the past week have- caused
corn to advance toward maturity very
rapidly. In the northern counties and
in sections where the moisture xvas suf
ficient this has been exceedingly favor
able for corn. In many sections the
lack of moisture, combined with the
high temperature, has caused corn to
dry cut and ripen too rapidly. This
will cause much chaffy corn in the
southeastern counties and will quite
generally reduce the yield cf com in
the southern counties.
