Corn In e.tem Nebraska Is rtlll In fine
condition unci ha not been damaged to
rials by want of rain, but In many other
Kprtlon of the ante the want of rain
ho been felt anil only time can tell how
much damage ban been done. There has
been practically no damage east of Hast
ings and Red Cloud. South of Hastings
and around Holdrege and from that point
nest the damage has been considerable.
W. W. Johnson, assistant KenerRl freight
agfnt of the Burlington, has made an ex
tensive trip over a largj portion of Ne
braska to look Into crop conditions. He
says that It Is a hard matter to estimate
"We saw fields on one side of the road
which were In fine condition, while on
the other side the corn seemed to be dry
ing up," said Mr. Johnson, who traveled
hundred of milts In automobile. "A rain
coming at the present tltno will do an In
estimable amount of go d. The lack of
wind during this hot spell is all that has
dived Nebraska. If these hot day had
been accompanied by a wind the corn
would surtly have been parched."
Mht Rain Help Some.
A llghi rain fell Monday night from
Valley to Central City and while it was not
heavy enough to wet the ground much It
Kerved to cool the atmoipheie. Agent
along the Union Pacific report the corn In
fine shape r.ni damaged very little from
t:ie hot weather. The St. Joseph & Grand
Island road reported a temperature of
from 78 to 102 along that line Monday. The
com near Marysvllle, Kan., Is damaged
about 30 per cent In the upland fields and
10 per cent on the lowlands.
Thf.re was a sprinkle of rain around
Powell Monday night and a hard rain be
tween Sidney and Col ton, with a light
rain from Col ton to Cheyenne. No dam
age was nported along the Union Pacific
lint Monday, although the corn was dried
up about 20 per cent near Paxton Sunday.
Kansa has hid no rain to break the
hot spell, but there has been a lack of
wind which has saved the corn, If the
ralu will come goon.
