j this vicinity, making a total rainfall
of 8:13 inches in less than a week.
This the heaviest rainfall recorded
in the month of April for the sixteen
years, that we record. Proving this
to have been a real drouth we give the
annual rainfall during the past six-
teen years as follows: In 1914-32.80
inches, 1015-26,82, HIKMB.Ofi, 1917-
7.52, 1918-11.82, l!)J!i-2.'l.8(i, .1920-31.73

15.09, 1928-17,41, 1929-17.99. For the
past six months, beginning with Oct.
1929, there has bee only 3.97 inches,
Rain and plenty of it has been our
plea. Truly w(. are thankful.
Farmers and business men have al-
ready taken a different, view of life.
Fare-., that a week ago were long and
sorrowful are now smiling, the slow
draging footsteps that bespoke dis-
couragement have been exchanged for
a peppy stride that .shows hope renew
ed and faith strengthened.
True, the City of Aspermont sus-
tained heavy loss in the breaking fit"
the water-supply lake but stops are
under way to rebuild. It will probab-
ly cost three thousand or more dollars
to put it up in shape and the work
will speed up preparitory to taking
care of the next down-pour. In the
mean time temporary arrangements
will be made for present needs.
The fishing season was so near at
hand, the fish were so fine and «
plentiful that most as much regret
has been expressed by some of the
anglers over loss of the fish as that
of the water. Oh, well.
