Excerpt from Official Report of the Twenty-Ninth Fruit Growers' Convention of the State of California: Held Under the Auspices of the State Horticultural Commission, at Fresno, Commencing Tuesday, December 8th, and Ending Friday, December 11th, 1903

The condition Of the prairie lands in the Middle West in 1849, with the condition Of the forests in the Northwest, would seemingly account for this lessened rainfall, as well as the unprecedented oods of the past summer. A lumber merchant Of San Francisco, who visited sawmills in Minnesota the past summer, related to me the destruction going on in the lumber districts. He stated that he saw logs being cut which were SO small that they would square but one piece 4 by 4. Fifty years ago a vast area Of the Middle West was covered with prairie grass, the top soil being a mass Of roots, which would probably absorb and hold at one time ten or more inches Of rain. This rainfall would percolate the soil below and leave the surface root-mass to absorb the succeeding rains; and this moisture would be given out by means Of springs and evaporation, which would cause rains throughout the season. It would be the same in the forests; the roots would absorb a great many inches Of rain. Farming Operations have changed all this. If something is not done, the oods will increase and be more and more disastrous.

Statistics Of the rainfall in southern California, from records kept during a period Of thirty years, and which do not include the winter Of 1902 - 03, Show that there was a period Of six years, not including the past winter, in which the rainfall was much less than the normal. Dividing the thirty years into periods Of six years, we find the follow Ing.
