and in the northwest portion of the State.
These showers, as a rule, were light and
droughty conditions continue in practically
all portions of the State. Forest fires are
burning In many places and the ; atmos
phere has become very smoky. It is not
expected that the forest fires will be put
out or the atmosphere cleared of smoke
until good, soaking rains occur, and they
are badly needed at the present time.
The temporatures averaged about s:x de-
The nights were
aooui three degrees
cooler than usual in the western counties
and four degrees cooler than in eastern
counties. The afternoon temperatures
were about normal in all parts of the
State,- Light frosts were reported in a
fsw exposep places In Tillamook County.
The prevailing winds were northwesterly.
A tragic finish
A watchman's neglect permitted a
leak in the great North Sea dyke, which
a child's finger could have stopped, to be
come a runinous break, devastating an
entire province of Holland. In like man

permitted a little cold to go unnoticed
