Weekly Weather Crop !
For South Carolina.
Colombi*, S. C, July 30, 1896.
While in the main the crop prospects
continue promising, tbey have become
greatly diversified throughout the State,
'and io a few counties are in a critical
stage owing to the droughty conditions
that prevail During the week just
past there were oo severe damag?Dg j
conditions other then want of rain, ex- j
cept that in Oraogeburg County, and
thence eastward there was a high wind !
aocompaying the thunderstorm of the
25th (Thursday) tbat blew down corn !
and shook much unripe fruit from the ?
trees; there was another wind-storm !
over the same section on the 28th (Sun- |
day), but in both instances the injury !
done was comparatively light.
The temperature for the entire week
was seasonable and satisfactory, being 1
somewhat higher than usual during the
?rst part, and a trifle below during the :
latter part. The range of temperature j
was greater that during the week previ- j
ous, owing mainly to cooler nights.
The maximum over the entire State j
ranged between 84 and 98, the highest
temperatures, as usual, occurred in the
interior; the minima ranged between !
58 and 78, having been coolest at night
in the interior.
The highest temperature reported
was 98 on the 24th at Cberaw and :
McColl ; the lowest 58 on the 28th at j
Batesburg. The mean temperature of !
the week for the State was about 81. j
and the normal for the same p eriod was !
The controlling factor on crop condi
tion was rain or the lack of it. There
were showers on the 24th, 25th and j
