As the amount of rain and tempera

Warms'pring, it may be some of the read
ers of The Pioneer would be interested in
some items from the record of this co-op-erative
station made the past four years,
I select a few totals from the winter
months) the precipitation includes the
for 21 days.-
Note that there is Very little difference
in the,, total monthly . precipitation less
than a quarter of an inch. In 1904 the
total 'Was a little more than double that of
any other of the years given, and the
largest monthly, amount of that year was
in March. Also, the total precipitation in
April of '04 was i,88j being about three
times as much as in any April of the
other years. The April total for '05 was
.42, not quite half an inch.
