THE RAINFALL-
Several weeks ago the Ogalalla
News published a statement giving
the rainfall of past twelve years as
recorded by the officers of this sig
nal station, and the editor in his re
marks stated the rainfall m West
ern Nebraska was increasing each
vear. A copy of the paper was for
warded to the signal office in Wash
ington, and last week Observer
Piercy of the North Platte office
received the following from Jno. P.
Findley, the Recording Officer of
the Signal Department:
"The rainfall of Western Ne
braska and adjacent states lias not
increased of late years, but has been
better distributed throughout the
year as shown by increase of the
number of rainy days.
"The breaking up of the hard
prairie lands and subsequent culti
vation has checked evaporation and
enables the rainfall to penetrate the
earth and thus increase its value to
growing crops."
