There deems to he sn yuusupl s mount of ruilroud aecidtEta reported in the dsille# of this week csuaed hy trains colliding snd in some plsees t/y heavy snow aud wind storms. The anow storm of last week ex tended from Denver to the Atlantic ai.d from Daketa to Texas and es pecially in the eastern state* did great damage. V*. Chicago all corn, runniest ion with the outside world and with Us own suburbs were com pletely cut oir by the falling of the telegraph wires, they being unable to hold the heavy weight of snow and ice which stuch fast to than. In the streets of the eity anow a ad slush was piled high and locomotion made difficult and dangerous. Other eastern cities are reported in about the same condition. ... - . _ • Now is the beat time to invest in Nebraska soil and those who are permanently located here will do well to remain. Such a drouth as we have had in the past two years has never been known before in tha history of the stats and it is only reasonable to suppose that it will not come again with the present generation. From all over the state comes tire report that there is plenty of moisture and that the ground is in excellent condition. We have already had two good falls of snow this fail and at the present writing sleighing is the best known here for three years last past Everything confirms the prediction that the drouth period is broken and hereafter will only he known in history. An era of pros perity may confidently be expected to commence with next year N MIKAfiKA BAlXrALL. riie agricultural experiment sta tion of the statu university has just issued a press bulletin regarding the rainfall in Nebraska for the past twenty years ikat eont aius much valuable information, and it is especially valuable to those who have commenced to loose faith in the state The first important fact that it y contain* is that the entire weat ha* suffered more or less severely from drouth for the pust three vests, Nebraska being more seriously ef fected than some of her ueigbhora. The almost total failure in 1*W4 sod the partial failure this year natural lv ciaised it feeling of uurest and man\ to become ao discouraged that the ipiealion has beeu raised in their minds whether they would not better forsake tbair farms for a mote ftitoraldv locality. hi view of this feeling the otttcers of 'll* impertinent station have col lected data, showing the average rainfall not only tu Nsb.*»»ka but also m the states nuuictliaUdy sur rounding u» These ftp urea show thst Nebraska is as well favored lit . this reap* »t aa .my of her slater slates, Mikola 'lowing less and tliunesola and low* showing only s •lightly laru i pie* ipitation Tins ,s t.ikieg tlic average for iiie past r a mitt t»aia, including the lioee tears of drotiih The average rainfall |w*r tear in HI £ t Nebraska ia ‘iS.ftS Inches. Ia 1*1*1 it was largely in exceaa of that a mount, IHtfJl showed Id,*, In 1804 it waa 13,31, while title year It haa been IK. A further investigation shows that nearly 70 per cent of our year ly rainfall haa been during the five growing months, from April to Hep tcmber. In this respect there Is no state that ha* averaged better than Nebraska. The further fact ia shown that the precipitation during July and August, the corn maturing months, has been d.ftft and 2 «'<3 re* apectively—an abundance. The bulletin closes with the fol lowing sensible remarks: Thua it appear* both from a com pariaon of our yearly rainfall for the paet nineteen years with that of other states and from a study of its distribution through the months of the year, that the paet two or three seasons have represented cli mate conditions which are excep tionable rather than normal, and which are to be expected occasion ally rather than ordinarily in Neb _I- _ A Fr#«i*bt» Kaffir Cr»*« Tb* farmers of Oklahoma have been experimenting wltk tbe new K afllr corn, and they are now ready lo declare that it will bring more money to the farmer* of tbe United Ktates than all of the famous gold mines of the Kaffir eountrv from wlrlcb It comes. An enthusiast write* from Guthrie that a short season of experiment proved that the new corn would mature a full crop in tbe drysst aid hoteat taat on the high wsstarn plains. Now he say* a more thorough trial has developed the fact that “wtiether the season wss wet or dry, cool or hot, long or short, this new prrxlurt would thrive on all kind* of aoila with the minimum of care and culti vation, and planted any time be tween the 1st of April and tbe mid dle of July it would mature an ab aolutelv *urs crop of grain and fod der before tbe frosts of autumn. It will grow iuxeriantly on the aod of newly broksu ground, produce fine crop* either on bottom or up land, i* a natural enemy of waada ur.d will be as clean with two culti vuiiotis a* Indian corn will be with four tlmefc as many,” In Oluhoma and southern Kaoaas ho rnuah of Ibis corn was prodacsd last season that the people hardly knew for a time what to do with it. They found it good in its natural state for table use, bat did not realize its real commercial im portance until a miller of Medicine Lodge, Kae , ground it into mean Tbia was found in every way equal to corn meal. Than the miller ex perimented a little more and Anally produced a product that they aay will “create a revolution in the world’s breadatnifa." It ia Kaffir Hour. Bread made from it ia tweet to the taste, highly nutritious and aattsfaetory to the eye, being about the color of the beat graham bread. The talk coming from Kansas and Oklahoma about the hardiness and produotivenesa of the new corn, and ila value ea a food produet, la pitched at ao high a key that we mnat make considerable deductions for the enthusiasm of the into who have brought it out. But it is wtll worth tryiug in western Kansas and wealarn Nebraska It wilt Join well with alfalfa and the sioek indualry in carrying wealth to that region. Slate Journal.
