Some geezer sent in a report to the daily papers the first of the week to the effect that there was a nine-inch rain here and that the rivers were all out of their banks and washing the crops away. Somebody is a Cheerful One. There was a nice rain Sunday night—a little over an inch—and something less than an inch on Tuesday. About that much over the county generally—just enough. It was not enough to raise the streams to any extent. There was a little wind on Sunday night, but no considerable damage done.
Don’t forget the egg demonstration special car will be here Friday afternoon of next week at the Santa Fe station. An expert from the Department of Agriculture and one from the State Agricultural College will be present to discuss various questions pertaining to poultry raising, egg handling and marketing.
