Abilene had received only .95 of an inch at noon today, but th© southern part of Taylor county shared in the heavy rains which drenched areas south, west and east of here. This city’s water supply, cause for concern in recent weeks as the drouth and dust seemed destined to continue, was greatly benefited. Lake Abilene was up five feet at 12:30 a. m., and the water level was rising fast as Elm creek was out of hanks from a torrential fall at Dora, on th© watershed. Lake Kirby had shown a 15-inch increase, with Cedar creek running full all the way to Cedar Gap. Rain south of here covered a thirty-mile strip in Taylor nomiiy, with Ovalo leading West Texas and probably the statki in total anionnt of raitrfall. Three and one half inches record ed yesterday, and* two inches, received this morning, brought the total to five and one-half inches. The Ovalo lake, dry for two years, was full, the Santa Fe lake was nearly full and so was the Lawn municipal lake.
