Fine Rain Sunday.
A splendid rain fell here Sunday,
coming up from the south and
southeast and passing north and
northwest. This is the first good
rain Jasper has had for probably
00 days but other sections about
us have been favored during that
period, in several instances good
rains coming wi hin three miles

the bugs have gotten in and the
rains have failed to come Out
west and a little northwest of
Jasper the corn does not look as
gcod as it does elsewhere, but even
there it can stand another week of
dry weather if rain comes then
-There is one thine coming out
plainly this year, and that is. that
farmers are more and more rcnliz
ing the value of continual workinp
in the corn during dry weather,
thus conserving this moisture in
the ground Many a farmer has
told us the past two weeks that
his corn was standing the drought
better than he ever saw it before.
but he generally adds, "I've worked
that corn over four, five or six
times," as the case may be. Some
of the farm papers assert that
Missouri cornfields never before
received the attention that they
have received this summer.
As we go to press (Wednesday)
it looks very much like rain again.
A little more rain from now on and
Jasper County will raise a fine
corn crop for 1913
