WERE REJECTED THIS MKII'S THEME
The Commissioners' Court In Its
wisdom has again seen fit lo reject ull
bids both for the bonds and for the
construction work of more than a half
million dollars voted to l*e expended
for this purpose. Most of the large
number of bidders from all over the
country who were In McKinney Prl-
duy placing bids, luive left, while
there are u few who are yet here with
hopes of coining lo some sort of a sat-
isfactory ileal. According to the state-
ments of the County Judge and Com-
missioners the bids for the bonds
were too low and construction of the
roads were entirely too high. The
concrete men were greatly In evi-
dence, there being more of these con-
tractors than any other. One bid was
received for the construction of the
roads In the McKinney precinct on a
cash basis, which was pleasing to the
court, but the bonds have not been
sold, and the offer could not be accept-
ed. Tho highest cash bid for the
bonds heretofore has been 91c on the
hundred, but a little better private bid
was made the Court Friday. These
road bonds have been advertised three
times and this is tho lifth time that
bids have been received and rejected.
It is stated that the lowest bid re-
ceived for the construction for cash
Friday was almost $100,000 less

The new ruin mouth begins near

rainfall will largely decrease on this
continent, particularly north of tin
Ohio und Missouri livers. Not so
much rain Is expected In the middle
and western cotton states, our fore-
easts lor the southeastern state" are
not complele and we have not been
forecasting for them except In a gdi-
i rul way, but we are about ready lo
take tliein Into our work.
Ii Is a notable fact that we gave tIn-
correct period for the most severe
storms of April, 21 lo 20, also thai we
gave the correct dates for the great
hot wave ol April, 21 lo 30. Sic our
April charts. Now we will give u very
positive und serious warning for the
eight days beginning Wednesday.
June 2. That will he a period of ex-
ceedingly disastrous storms and If we
had a trumpet that would reach the
two hundred and sixty million human
ears on this continent we would at-
tach a steam engine to It and blow It
constantly from May 22 to Juno 12,
warning them of very great danger,
possibly beginning lust part of May
and surely first part of June. We
icgard this as a very serious matter
because we feel that many, very
many lives will be lost on land inul
It Is not an easy matter lo locate
these destructive storms but they
will probably occur south of latitude
•to. more probably southward from
that line and still more probably in
the vicinity of the Mexican Gulf and
the Caribbean Sea. The most severe
storms for many years past, for the
same reason, are expected on the 1'a-
citlc coast from middle Chile to l.os
Angeles during that storm period.
