A rdot-soaklng rain was general all

braska, western Iowa, South Dakota-and
Kansas, the precipitation ranging from
one to six inches. It being the most gen
eral and heaviest of the season. At many
places It was still raining when reports
camo In yesterday morning.
By reason of the heavy rain and tho
softened condition of the grades, tralni
are running late, but no serious damage
has been done along the lines oxcept
south of Manila, la., where the Milwau
kee grade, washed out several days ago
and Just rebuilt, was badly cut and
Northern Kansas apparently got the
heaviest of Monday's rain; reports coming
from Marysvllle, Concordia and several
places along the Republican river sny
that the precipitation was five to l
Inches, and still raining.
Alt along both he high and the low
lines of the Burlington, from McCo.ik
to as far as Holdrege, the rainfall was
from two to three Inches, with three and
one-half lnohes down the Blue river
valley, where streams went out of their
banks; wagon bridges were swept away

No Cause for Worry.
As to tho com, Superintendent Allen
says there Is no causa for worry. Ho es
tlmates that 75 per cent of the seed is In
the ground and regardless of tho fact that
the weather has been cold, much of It Is
Bhowlng through the ground, scouting the
Idea of reports of rotting.
General Manager Walters of the North
western estimates that throughout North'
western territory in tho corn growing
belt fully 75 per cent of tho planting has
been completed. Much of the early plant
ing Is ready for cultivation as soon as the
ground Is dry enough to bo worked.
Mr. Walters Is looking forward to the
biggest and best crop of corn that Ne
braska has ever raised. Having watched
Nebraska crop conditions for years, he
says that with tho soil as moist as It Is
at this tlmo the corn crop will mature
within ninety-five days from planting
The rains have soaked the ground to a
depth of two or throe foet and when
warm weather docs come the entire coun
