Broadway, Dial 3-8877 FRIDAY, APRIL 23, 1954 Hardin Has 1.41 Inches of Rain HARDIN Calhoun people en- Joyed about the! happiest day of the present year Thursday as they watched the rain coming down so gently that almost all of the moisture was going into the soil. Rain started falling just after midnight and at 1 p. m. had totaled 1.41 inches at Hardin. This was the largest single rain since last October. April has now given Calhoun just about its normal rainfall. The north end of the county has had threo big rains during the month nnd ponds and cisterns i'n that section are rapidly filling. One large pond on a North Calhoun farm was full before this rain and, another new one on the same farm' was almost half filled. These two ponds, if full In the spring season will carry the farmer's livestock throgh the rest of the year. It has also been remarkable how the April showers havp caused springs lo flush. Many of them have come back to almost normal flow nfler being weakened for months. There has not been sufficient surface water lo freshen the springs, but a theory has been advanced that surface moisture IMS caused subsoil water to rise nnd aid the springs. The prospects of continued rains for the next few days have caused Calhoun people to hope that their cisterns may soon be full. From Hardin south, big cisterns are the principal source of water on many 'arms, while nearly every place has one or more ponds. The present rainy spell will ns sure enough moisture to start the corn crop which will be planted in the next couple of weeks, if weather conditions permit.
