SUTHERLAND. Neb., July 3. (Special.)
The amount of rainfall In this territory
during the past several days has caused
much surprise, to say the least, on the
part of the oldest settlers. Following
three or four hard rains In as many days,

that the precipitation amounted to fully
six Inches, and the storm was general
over the contiguous section. Crops and
especially the sugar beets Were was; ed

ing to a depth of several feet In the low
places. In town for several hours after
the rain It was almost Impossible tiV. get
about the streets. The railroad grade was
washed in many places and trains held up
till repairs could be made. It Is difficult to
form any definite estimate of the damage
to crops and orchards, the latter llng
damaged to a considerable extent by hall
as well as the wind recently.
