Rains in July
"fTfTEDNESDAY morning we were awakened about four
,W o'clock by the patter of rain on the metal roof of the
porch below our bedroom window. The winter rams had fall
en ceaselessly without arousing us; in fact the dramming of
the rain was almost lullaby. But rain in July, that is differ
ent It is very "unusual" if you please, so why should not the
Hieat of rain drops serve as an alarm? !
In this great northwest there is the long rainy season
extending from September to the first of July rand the short
dry season of two months with rarely a passing shower.
This year June failed to do its bit, so the July rains may be
merely the belated showers of June which somehow missed
t fco c&IcucliU
The July rain here does little good, though it does little
harm. Haying now is pretty well finished; grain harvest is
barely starting. Grain, except spring-sown grain, is not help
ed by late rains; in fact quality is often damaged if hot
weather follows a rainy spell. Gardens will rejoice in the
unexpected irrigation, and lawns drink the water like a
sponge. Nothing seems so good for vegetation as a generous
rain. . 1 J .
HBut there are regions where summer rams come as heal
ing balm, as heaven sent blessing. We refer not to the indus
trious husbandman who scans the skies hungrily for black
clouds ; but to the hired man. Were you ever a "hired man"
on a farm say in Kansas or Missouri and woke up at three or
four in. the morning and heard the rain on the roof? Ah, that
is indeed the grand and glorious feeling. For it meansj an
hour longer for snoozing; it means no corn plowing that day,
no hay-making, no shocking of bundled grain. Even if the
fanner grumbles because of interference with his plans, the
bircid hand secretly rejoices at prospect of & day of lightened
But his joy may be short-lived. For the farmer has al
ways chores ahead for rainy days. There is the mustard,
heai high, in the cow pasture behind the grove; there are
the weeds that have sprung up on the fringes of the road
and in corners of the barn-lot So the scythe must be brought
out and sharpened at the grindstone which the hired man
muiit turn as the farmer sets blade to wetted stone. Then
peridiance as he swings his scythe in the heavy weeds, air
humid and sweaty, the sun may come out to parboil him in
the heavy vapors.
Or the hired hand may be sent to trim the hedge. Wield-
ing a long knife like a machete he hacks away the new
gro'wth on the thorny hedge, provoking weariness in strange
muijcles of arm and shoulder. And while the hired hand is
left mowing weeds or trimming hedge, his farmer boss
drives into town to foregather with other farmers and talk
- of crops and prices and roads. i
. Such are the rainy days on mid-western farms. Here
alaii, they come s5 rarely in the summer season, we wonder
if farmer or hired man knows just hew to take them.

take pages of this newspaper, to
explain the ramifications and
sum up the conclusions of the
famous North Salem claim-Jumping
case. L. H. Judson, the orig
inal claimant and the father of
Mrs. J. B. McClane, covered the
whole matter. In a general way
for the 1871 and 1872 directory
of Salem. In full, he said:
"In the month of March, J. B.
McClane, the donee of the North
Salem land claim, removed with
his family to the Atlantic states.
He had completed a residence on
the land claim of more than sev
en years, and, having made and
filed his final proof of continued
residence and cultivation in the
surveyor general's office In ac
cordance with the requirements
of the Oregon donation law, he
sold the North Salem mills to
L. M. Savage, Alanson Beers and
J. I. Parrlsh, and left Oregon,
making a conditional sale of the
remainder of the land he owned.

the fore-runners of eczema. Over

This gave rise to a long litigation

many vexatious delays, was fin

placed over it a magnifying glass.
"See for yourselfl" he invited.
Quickly the Commissioner bent

and squinted. With intense Interest
he studied the almost; invisible
treasure which the scientist had

Again without replying. Professor
Luckner opened a drawer in the
kitchen table upon which he had

From the drawer, be drew out a
long tube which physicians call a

finds a permanent home. This jar
