By the establishment of a volunteer weather station at the Dakota Agricultural College by the United States Signal Service, the Experiment Station of that College is able to publish the following tables of meteorology. The instruments could not be obtained and set up earlier than May 17, 1888, and even then only a part of them. Fuller observations are now taken and will be continued. These tables, however, though imperfect, throw some light upon the bulletins descriptive of the growth of the garden vegetables, com and other grains, as well as the forestry and fruit trees.
