The local influenxa situation was
reported yesterday to lie some
what Improved. Only a very few coeos
liavo developed in the hurt twenty-
four hours. The ▼ictiins recovering
dally almoat offset the new cases
which develop, one of the loot I phy-
slcliins gave it aa his opinion that the
change in the weather conditiona
would be beneficial in a way If the
people did not get damp or hecomo
exposed to other than normal condi-
tions. The ralna which have fallen In
tlm last two day a will clear the atmoa-
phere and nettle the duat that In an
ever active farm carrier in dry weath-
er and will graatly help the phyaMftna
In their efforta to stamp out the epi-
demic of the Influenaa. Notwithstand-
ing the good which will result from
the recent rain, a aerloua danger
might aiiae and kelp to apraed the
npiileinln if the poople do not uae ev-
ery precaution, flatting damp should
be avoided becauee it will caaae coble
to develop and thane colds could rery
easily turn into a serious caee of In-
tluenau or pneemonla.

The recent rains liore will
greatly improve the conditions of all
winter pasturage and other winter
food stuff. Many farmers in Collin
county have already planted their
winter wiheat, which will be benefited
by those soaking rains. The hot and
prolonged drouth which prevailed
over most of the state, left tho ground
In a hard and an untilluhle condition.
These showers and rains will place
the soli lu it better condition for
breaking and for fall sowing.
Ac.cordltiR to Or. J. I,. Cllne, Pallas
weather observer, more rains and
showers are empeeted to fall over the
northern part of the stato. More
rain Is needed for the sweot potato
crop which generally matures late in
tho fall. Oats will also ho benefited
by these rains. The most good ex
pect.ed from the showers is the pas-
turage which will not require yo much
Iced stuff during tho coining months.
