There was no rainfall worthy of mention in the roast counties, and the little that fell occurred in the form of mist and was hardly measurable. The rain fall con dition for the week may be summed up in the statement that there was a gradual Increase in the amount of precipitation from the coast north ward and northwestward over the state, culminating in an excess of over one Inch in the extreme north western division The deficiency In the interior of the state and also in ihe northwestern and eastern divis ions was. however, largely offset by a fairly good distribution of the showers, as from most portions of Ihe state from four to five rainy days are reported. The rain was very benefi cial. and it is quite likely that, with the general overcast sky. evaporation was slow and that the greater part of the moisture remained in the ground. Average temperature during the week was about normal and there were no unusually high maxima nor very low minima, which is probably due to ihe great amount of cloudi ness prevailing over the state. The weekly mean temperatures reported from the several divisions of the state range from 4S degrees at Ama rilio in the northwestern division to 70 degrees at Corpus Christi on the southwest coast. No unusual dis turbances or phenomena are report ed, and the week closed with dimin ishing cloudiness over the greater portion of ihe state. Senator Mills' Daughter Dies.
