Another good seasonable rain fell
here March 15th; creeks and tanks
wrere replenished and farmers thought
the rain beneficial to growing crops.
A good many had planted corn bet ore
the rain, while others are just com-
mencing—afraid to risk the high-
priced seed. The ground is rather wet,
. however they are going to finish
planting right away.
Some of the old farmers say there
never was a better prospect for
wheat; it’s growing off nicely and all
stock have been taken off the grain.
Grass and weeds are growing off fast

haps" we will have early figs this year,
for the first time in many years.

something once more. The women are
setting hens and incubaters and the
happy thought of raising something
to feed the chicks inspires them with
