BIG RAINFALL IN
Pnllman, Wash., May 31.—The pro-
I longed drouth which threatened des
truction to grain orops through tne
Palouse country has been broken by
the heaviest rainfall of this time of
the yew since 1897, when tbe largest
orop ever harvested in this seotion
was grown after- a long drouth simi
lar to that broken today.
Rain began tailing yesterday- after
noon, and has continued steadily for
nearly thirty hoots, and shows np
signs ot abatement. At 3 o'olook thi«
afternoon .the < rainfal I bad * exceeded
two inches, breaking all records for
May rain. This is the first heavy rain
since February, and the crop condition
was oritioal. A week more of snob
weather as has prevailed for two
weeks would have worked irreparable
injury to tbe grain orop. Farmers
'had began to real that the crop would
be almost a total failure when tbe ram
began yesterday* The ground was
bard and dry, the surface beinp oraokj
ed apd vegetation had not grown no
ticeably for two weeks.
The rain has been general through
out Eastern Washington and Northern
:Idaho, audi n many localities tbe crop
it made. Reports from all sections in
dicate that tbe wheat orop is 80 per
cent, of ah average, despite tbe injury
by the cold weather, in which much
of the winter wheat waa killed.
