HOT WINDS DID DAMAQE Rainfall for Month Averaged 2.31 Inches—.90 Inch Below Normal. Topckn, Kan., SepL 7.—The month of August, Just past, put some remarkable records in Kansas weather history. According to tho monthly weather report, Issued by S. D. Flora, federal meteorologist for Kansas, during the mouth a maximum temperature of 115 degrees—reached at Minneapolis on the 3rd—was the highest temperature ever recorded in Kansas in August. It was •within one degree of "the highest temperature ever recorded east of tho Hockies except in Texas," and all told, the month was the third hottest month ever known in Kansas. Apparently not content with smashing heat records, the glare of Old > Sol, tho last two days of the month, threw on the reverse lover and spread a case of chills over the state, seldom if overreached In Kansas in August, with a minimum show-. Ing of 40 degrees recorded at Cimarron and Republic on the 31sL Thus, in plunging tho state from a season of extreme- tcftiperauirs ot the "Bermuda" high variety to extreme cool, the month as a whole witnessed a range of 74 degrees. Hot Winds Did Damage. (Mr. Flora points out Ihut it was not so much the lack of rain as tho extreme temperature and hot winds that withered nearly all vegetation and caused almost a total failure of corn and some other crops. His report follows: "The rainfall was deficient, hut not more so than it HM been In previous Augusts, and probably would have answered present needs had It not been for the intense heaL Temperatures ot 100 and higher occurred In all parts of the state and in the eastern half they occurred on a great many days, while quite a number of tho nights, except In the extreme western counties, were uncomfortably warm." Tho rainfall over the eastern third of Ihe state averaged 2.48 IncheB;- the middle third, 2.50 Inches; the western third, 1,88 Inches, and for Uie entire state 2.31 inches, which is .90 of an inch below normal and less 'than half tho amount that felt during August a year ago. The report adds: "This makes it the third consecutive dry month and closes a. twelve month period which is one of the dryost on record, with only three months of that time that had more than the normal precipitation." Tho greatest amount of rainfall was 5.37 Inches at Hanover and the least .19 at Richfield. In conclusion the report states: "In the eastern and some of the central counties, stock water was as scarce ns it ever had known to be HAD CLASS SOCIAL.

Not all of the churches have speakers assigned to them as yot, but will have them by tomorrow. The speakers follow: J. C. Hopper at the Presbyterian, Will. Burnett at the United Brethren, A. E. Asher at the Moncton Fears a Natural Gas Short. ; age This Year. Moncton, Now Brunswick, Canada, —Tho consumption of natural gas in Moncton Is increasing rapidly. In July, 1910, 24,138,000 cubic feet wero consumed; in July, 1917, 25,549,000 cubic feci: and in July, 1918, 29,157,000 ruble feet. The number of subscribers Is now more than 2,000. ' Fearing that, a shortage ill the supply may occur In the near future, a committee has hocn appointed by the city council to Bludy the question of conservation and rates. It Is estimated that 10,000,000 feet of new gas will be required to meet tho demands and so far drilling operations during the current year havo yielded only 1,000,000 foet. For domestic uso the prevailing rate is 40 cents per 1,000 feet; certain large Industrial consumers enjoy a lower rate. It Is proposed to raise the rote to 50 cents tor domestic, consumption and 40 cents for industrial. This would probably cause many large consumers to abandon tho use of gas as a-fuel, thus Insuring an adequate supply for the householders. A Strictly Modern Service.
