On Saturday night about mid
night a small cloud appeared in the
west, wijich grew and grew, until
tbo heavens were overcast by heavy
masses oi gray clonus ana tho ram
commenced falling slowly at first,
accompanied by heavy wind but by
noon Sunday It had increased to a
genuine downpour nnd continued
all Sunday night and all day Mon
day. Tho ground was thoroughly
soaked and cisterns, wells and
creeks replenished onoo more. Bus
iness men are jubilant and realize
that tho ram means a revival ot
trade, tho cominc ot better times
and a return of confidence and bus
iness stability. To the farmer the
rain wasn God-send but stockmen
as a rule, would bavo preferred con
tinuous dry weather for BOmo
months yet as tho rain will rot the
grass and destroy what littlo range
there is now. Wo quoto John liar
wood as follows;
'I would rather it had not rain
ed boforo next spring; this rain will
rot .the grass and chill tho cattle
and has come too late to do tbo
stockmen any good. It is good for
tho farmers, though, I am
thinking of sowing ryo for pastur
age this winter. I believe it would
do firHt-rato since this rain came."
