"Then? never was such a wot .luno," is a common ex
pression, just as a few months ago "there never was such a
dry winter and spring."
As a matter of fact there are numerous instances of
wet J unes, while official records only begun in 1889. Since
then the average has been ,J)S inches rainfall. In 1877 old
timers say it rained all summer. In 1S8T the unofficial rain
fall record for .Tune was 2.10 inches. .In 1SS8 the unofficial
record was 5.20 inches. In !tS!)l it was 2.1)15 inches. In
ISfU it was 3:15 inches. In 1S0S, 2.H0 inches. In 15)00,
3.7!) inches. Tn 1912, 2.19 inches. Up to date for 1913 it
has been 2.91 inches with prospects of going over the three
inch mark by night.
A closo comparison with .Tune of a year ago shows that
up to date, the month has been almost a duplicate, the wet
periods corresponding in date and length. The average
mean temperature for June in 1912 was (53.7. Up to date
this year it is (53. The heaviest vainfall in anv 21 hours a
year ago was 1.04 inches. This June it is .96 inches.
Tt will be noticed that record crops follow wet Junes.
The same result can bo expected this year. The good done
far outweighs the damage. Some of the hay is lost. Some
of the grain is falling, but fruit and produce of all kinds are
greatly benefited. Tho fruit buds for next season are set
ting and the abundant moisture insures a heavy set. Heavy
cuttings of alfalfa aro insured. Big yields of corn, pota
toes, grain and other staples are in prospect.
They are (lying of heat in Chicago and the middle west.
They arc sweltering under tho oppressive humidity along
tho Atlantic. President Wilson has flown from the heiir,
of the nation's capitol to the cool of the White mountain
hills. Drought is destroying the fruit and other crops
throughout the eastern states, as it has already ruined crop
prospects for California.
The rain may be disagreeable hut its better than the
heat and the drought of the rest of the nation.
There are worse things than rain.

Uncle Sam to Aid Farmers Co-opertive
WASHINGTON", Juno 27. A more
thorough organization of fnrrainc;
nnd the establishment of credit nnd
marketing systems on a business ba
sis nro among tho objects of tho Ru
ral Organization Sen-ice tho latest
wrinkle to tho mnny sided Agricul
tural department. There is nlso Ihe
ever present question as lo what is
to be done tojeeep the farmers on the
farms, or in other words how follow
ing agricultural pursuits as a busi
ness may bo rando altractivo from a
monetary ns well as socinl stand
point nnd thus overcomo tho young
man's longing for the city.
Dr. Thomas N. Carver, who scr
cred his long connection with Har
vard university to becomo head of
Ihe new department sen-ice, paid to
day that ho took the job "becauso it
will solve for the farmers all tho re
maining age-old problems that ltesc
tofo'ro havo proved the great stum
bling block in tho perfection of
American fanning methods." The
plnn is a new one. It will be in an
experimental stage for somo years
to come. Professor Caner 6ays the
plan is tho right one, but admits
frankly thnt it will tako many
months of digging nnd effort lo get
Ihe system running truo to form.
Professor Cnner, therefore, has
been lonliie to make nny statement
regarding the plnns and workings of
tins new department. Hut todny ho
consented to explain somo erf tho ob
jects and purposes of his department
to the people of tho country through
tho United Press.
"Tho movement wo are launching
heie," wiid Professor Cnncr, "is, in
my opinion, ono of Ihe grcntest yet
undertaken by this government to im
provo tho miner's financial, physical
nnd social condition. Let mo say at
llio slajt thnt it is no detriment to
the American fanner that he hns not
solved hese problems for himself. He
hns had enough to do lo plant his
crops and then gamer them. Ho has
had no time for cxcriment. Ho hns
had but sennt timo to orgnnizo with
ins co-worKcrs io market tits crops
lo best advantage. Wo will do litis
for him by gathering all necessary
dala to which ho enn refer at n
glance. It has long been recognized
that disorganization hns been (ho
greatest weakness of ngriculturc.
Such a condition is natural because
of the vast number of fanns nnd bo
causo of the isolation of most fnrms.
The farmer hns learned to cooperate
better with nature than with men and
he hns not learned how to cooperate
along financial and social lines.
"Wo will organize suneys lo get
at tho basio facts regarding organ
ized rural ngencies. Wo will try to
bo Ihe medium between tho farmer
nnd the financier from whom Ihe
the fanner wnnts credit. In this ro
fcpect wo will perhaps uso a great
deal of the information being assured
today by tho American Agricultural
commission, which is studying rural
credit systems in Gcnunny nnd other
huropenn cities. Wo will Mudy lo
calities for tho best means nnd man
ner of transportation nnd wo will
gather data regarding the best mar
kets for certain surrounding fann
districts. We will gather information
concerning farmers' . organizations
nnd wo will study even tho rural edu
cntional systems in mi effort lo bel
ter them. All these facts and data
will be disseminated among the six
millions or more fanners of tho coun
try without any cost in money or lime
lo themselves, at different intervals
and in such a manner ns to appeal to

Thnt is, Mrs. Vniideihill nokod Ihe
sheriff lo appoint her n deputy,
which in New York is one of Ihe ways
of gelling the legal right lo carry a
pistol. The sheriff hns appointed
hundreds of deputfes, who enrry large
gold Imdges and pistols. The sheriff
was so anxious (o neeommudale Mrs.
Vandcrhilt that ho utmost made her

warned by his counsel that a woman
