Heavy Rains Past Week Bring Relief

Since our last publication day several heavy showers have visited this locality, soaking the fields and pastures the deepest in more than a year.

Friday and Saturday afternoons and evenings brisk showers gave vegetation new life and Wednesday morning and forenoon more than an inch of rain fell in a few hours. This Thursday morning another heavy shower added welcome moisture. The storms seemed to be pretty general west and northwest, Geddes and Platte getting the heaviest rain of the year. While these rains came a little late for small grain the planted corn, pastures and gardens will be greatly benefited​ . The spreading of grasshopper poison has begun and the frequent showers, it is said, are just right for the effective work of the poison.
