BKK. ] During Iho laltor part of last summer
and tlio entire fall , Iho Plalto river was very
low ; and during the winter and curly spring
of this year , almost waiorlosa in this local
ity. This fact gave rise to the most doleful
predictions among the "oldest inhabitants , "
and especially among the weather prophets.
They assorted that this spring would be a
dry one , and that crops would bo a certain
failure for want of rain. This foreboding
has not been realized , for the contrary has
occurred.Vo have had timely and abundant
ruins , and the conditions for the planting und
