Notwithstanding the rains of Saturday

road experts contend that this state,
Iowa, South Dakota and Kansas are fao
Ing a oritioal condition, so far as the corn
crop la concerned. They admit that the

The rain of Saturday night, according
to the railroad reports, consisted of scat
tered, showers over the most of the state.
The rain Sunday night was heavier and
more generally distributed, at least west
of the Missouri river. Along the Union
Pacific there was a light rain most of
the way from Omaha to North Platte,
the heaviest being In tho vicinity of Cen
tral City, where the precipitation aggre
gated ono and one-half Inches. Over the
branches to the north there was from
one-fourth to onehalf Inch reported from
most of the stations, with about the same
rainfall along tho main line west of

visited by rain Sunday night. Over most
of tho Omaha, division there waa from
one-half to three-fourths of an Inch; on
the Lincoln division, from a trace to one

fourth to onealf Inch, with very heavy
rain in tho vicinity of Bridgeport nnd

were a number of places where there
was hardly enough rain to lay the dust.
Along with tho rain report comes the

to the past, the estimates on the corn

In making up tho report, Superintendent
Allen contends that the critical stage for
corn has approachod and the damage that
has been done, generally has been in the
fields whero tho cereal was farthest ad

withered the tassels, kilting the life Jn
the pollen. Late corn hoa fared better.
