Herald today the report seems to be borne out As a result cooler weather pre- vails today. The hot grain has been cooled- off and ideal condl- -tions for filling the wheat, whtch had headed out rapidly during the past two weeks, now prevail.; Only one report of .any hail damage was received by.the Her- ald. That was in the Van Home soldiers' colony north of Coaldale. A short, sharp'hallstorm occurred early in the evening, but the ex-' tent of the damage, could hardly, be estimated this morning. It is not believed the darrlage was large, j There are beautiful crops in'this district. I At Uthbridge the rainfall was only .17 inch. Rain began to. fall about 9 o'clock and continued termittently during trie riight..- Soulh of the city the rain .25 inch being recorded by the Felger farm rain gauge. At Coaldale two heavy showers fell, about'half an inch of rain being recorded. At Spring Coulee there was the heaviest rain reported, the fall being placed at 1.5 Inches. A nice shower visited Nobleford, while at the Cameron ranch the rain was heavy, stopping work The storm came very oppor- tunely. Only a few points In .Southern Alberta reported real' of rain, but coming after the very hot weather of the past ten dayi the rain was welcomed. It will help greatly to fill out the grain now In head and will also serve to allay fears that dry wea- ther during the final stage'of the growing season would decrease the yield. A general feeling of .optimism Is apparent this morn- ing and business men are pre-' paring for one of the greatest fall's business In the history of the city.
