times and these were in the years 19IM1,
1910, 1914. There has been several
yeurs that were almost dry, such as
1906 with only .0.T of an inch of rain,
190S with only .02 of an inch of rain
and 1911 with but .08 of an inch.
August holds the record as dry mouth
of tho year for this part of the state.
During the past 15 yours, six times
has the month passed without a drop
of rain and these were in the years '00,
10, '11, '14, '15 and '17. Other years
that came pretty close to the diyless
record wene 1903 with only .03 of an
inch, 1909 with but .02 of an inch and
1913 with a precipitation of only .30
of an inch.
On an average, the month of Novem
ber is the wettest of the year.

That question has beeu put up to At

State Olcott. Warden Murphy of the
penitentiary pre.-vtited a claim, which
had been approved by the governor, for
$50 to pay prizes awarded io the con

"The records of the office" say, the
litter from the seeietary of state to the
attorney general, "do not show that a
similar claim has ever heretofore been
presented to-it for audit."
The penitentiary has exhausted its
maintenance appropriation, and at a re
cent meeting of the state emergency
board asked for authority to incur a
deficiency of 70.000. Th."? board auth
orized a deficiency of half that amount
but expects to meet again in the fall and
authorize a further deficit.

the heaviest rainfall for any 24 hours
during the past 20 years and that was
on December 19, when the total pre
cipitation was 4.03 iuch.es.
The old saying that it rains a uionthJ
at a time in Oregon is not confirmed
by tho official records for the past 20
years. About tho most continuous mouth
of rain was February of 1909, when the
heavens were busy for 20 out of the 28
days. The month of November of 1909
was an nil around rainy month as out
of the 30 days, it rained 26 and there
was a precipitation that mouth of 10.62
inches. For a real continuous rainy
period, February and March of 1904
hold the reiord. It was cloudy during
the entire two months and the rains
ceased only &;veu days during the 59
and there was a rainfall durnig the two
months of 18.58 inches.
The greatest flood time iu Salem for
tli. past 20 yeurs was.on November 25,
1909, when the stage of tho river was
30.7 feet above low water mark. The
r.ext highest stage w'as Fcbraury 7,
1907, when the water reached the 29.8
foot mark. Very close to this high water
record was that of January 10, 1901,
when the. stage was 29.5 "feet above
zero. The next record i- February 9
1910, with the water touching the 26.2
f et above mark. Last December when
there was such floods in Suleni the
guage of the river read 24 feet above
the low water mark.
Today, July 19, 1918, it is 1.3 feet be
low low water mark.
