The glorious rain came Thursday
and Friday and did a world bf
good, although we have not had a
full season yet, and we fear not
enough to bring the young corn
out, unless we can have more very
scon, and seasons often. Wo had
such a long drouth, from second
Sunday in May, until 18th of July,
except a shower two or three times
in that length of time, and so little
that it was soon gone. The branches
have dried up, so the cows have had
to depend on well water, and that
was very low. Gardens hove about
dried up, except Mr. H. G. Buncos'
which, is in a little sink below his
well, and it is doing fine. Any
one who has a good garden now is
tiuly blessed, especially if their
family are fond of vegetables. And
if they have more than they need
at home, the city people are beg
ging for them at tremendous prices.
