A Timely Question Answered. D. A, Kent in the ttutal Life: The intensely dry weather of this year atid the comparatively dry weather of recent years has led many to venture as" sections that there Were permanent charges in climatic conditions which would foreyer modify the quantity of moisture in the soil and thtrefore the humidity of the atmosphere. It has been claimed that the water table was sinking, that the wells were drying up and that drainage and the cutting of timber were the causes of the recession of the waters in the soil. If any one who has been thinking in this line will Stop and widtu his Views a little he will certainly change his mind. The changes that civilization has made on the prairies of Iowa have been favorable to raintall rather than unfavorable. There has been as many trees planted and permitted to grow : as has been cub down.' The umoke of villag* and town and country dwelling and factory and railway locomotive sets free more moisture every year than all the pnutie' grass and little groves of the whole ; state could conserve even in the days when they afforded shelter and comfort alone to the ; aborigines. The .effect of tile is to, make Jand drier in w^ti; times and wetter in a dry time. - -Che proof of this ifrevidenced in the condition of the undrained wet land thltf, year-. The spots which are ; ordinarily wet show the greatest suffering of crops,, • unless they have been specially nan-; died to suit the conditions of .the year. There are no; wells giving out except those surface water or very small sand pockets. Watkins'.

Thp Jittle'.baBiq.tbat affords water for our 1 college atidfcjirnxis drawn on for three times as 1 much water as'in former days, yet an attempt to? 16wer the well sunk in the, basin's exlge' resulted only in getting dowp, three feet .further^ .notwithstandiog two,'',. 3-inph ~- J * >Jtf 'rich pump pjas applied."

';; 'We Snow BWtlittl6' of "Iowa' weattief farther back than fifty years. 'But the configuration' of tbe prairies show that there has always beetv a limited rainfall. The surface and" soil conditions show that the rainfall has always been distributed as it'is now. That is,' the most rain falls in the southeast, and vthtoquantity 'gradually diminishes-'as the surface of the state rises, o? .as' we approach the northwest, In this light rainfall lies the'hope of our country. This intensely dry year has famished many of the fungus plants that' infest' our crops, and,Uas hindered the development of certain insect life. And I would just as soon-set -the' year down as at) unknown blessing, as to pass it tP any other account, Were" we to 'have double the amount of rainfall that we now, isjjjoy in Iowa it would not be but alew.years until the last vestige of the black'mould that now constitutes Iowa's greatest luxury, would be washed away, and the Iowa farmer would stand with that fOrtorn look $at,,uQw characterize^ t^e southern' planter as be pines for §4°flgb son to etfvfcr his seed, and then pipes agajn tor enough fertilizer to m^ke', it' grow,' Nature did » good job when she made, Iowa, §be never intended that the neat state S.&QU$ either dry up or wash aw»y« 8b^ tpjerates a little pinching of wao's vanity through the drouth and drowns bis pride in an occasional freshet, but on (be whole tt^ejre is a #n$ equilibrium J D t&eIowafiJtoAtie. t*. < ,;,'/• JN IFST Bpate a ,The Iowa * ^ g 9 i» 58 -The State Register ba^ the following chained him with urging on the coa telitiaa, swore Barnes would either take his stlK*itteiit back or take a licking.

He came to this Community from near Attica, Wis., itjftjid spring of 189S. and lived on a rented farm a half mile west of town. He leaves a wife and a 1 year-old babe. Those-jvbo knew him, boy and man, in his Wisconsin home, speak highly of his jnaanly qualities. Joe Wiley came bgre ftom Polk county, Iowa, about three' years Ago and rented a farm. He was known as a great talker w'th a at aggressive way but not con- ered .dangerous.
