Benefit to Nebraska Pas

Omaha, during the 24 hours ending
Friday morning at 7 o'clock, was

the year and every point in Nebraska,
reporting to the local weather bureau,
indicated rain from one-quarter of an
inch, and in several localities even a
great precipitation. Omaha's rainfall
amounted to .55 of an inch.
The rain was of inestimable value
to the state, particularly, most of
which was in need of it for pastures,
which had not started to green in
many places, as well as for the wheat
crop, which despite the rains earlier in
the week, needed the moisture badly
in many localities.
