FARMERS REJOICE OVER
Farmers say the rain of yesterdaj
was almost providential in Its time
liness. It came just after the frost
had gone and the soil was in the best,
possible condition to absorb moisture.
Very little' water that fell upon the
level ran away. Kven ponds that last
evening were full of water that had
run from the high places, this morn
ing were generally dry, the' ground
having taken all the surplus. This
section of the country is still several
inches behind in the amount of rain
fall during the past few months and
a number of such dispensations' as
that, of yesterday between now and
time to plant corn will do good.

out, would he-of the utmost import
ance in developing an appreciation
for high class limsie and would pre'
a source of benefit and pleasure to
the members as well. Hock Island
has never had such a society compos
ed of citizens in general and those
present were of the opinion that one
eon Id be made a success.

The following resolution was adopt
ed: Resolved, That it is the sense of
the undersigned that a choral union
Ik? organized in this city for the pur
pose of promoting good music by giv
ing oratorios and concerts from time
to time and that a list be circulated
for membership. To this the follow
ing names were appended:
