MIXIMAY. Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — Hamilton Spectator — 20 January 1914
MIKIMAY. (From Our Own Correspondent.) Taurtfiiay. The weather -which we have experi enced tor the past few weeks has been changeahle ; sometimes hot, of ten threatening rain., and there has been a remarkable amount of strong wind, which has caused a good deal of damase to crops, especially oat crops. The year 1913 has ended with a rainfall of 17 inchcs 35 nointa, which is a good deal below the aver age for this district. The lotal fall for 1912 was 21 inches 80 points, tor 1911 18 inches 49 points, and in 1910 inches 13 poit ts were registered. Harvesting is now the leading to pic, and from reports it would seem that this is likely to be one o! the few fat years which the farmers ex •nerieuce. Eight bags of wfloat p"r acre is common, and some crops averaging from 10 to 12 hags per pcre. . ,. . !
