to produco rain by tho explosion of dyna

ing Mayor Warner, at the request of ft
number of citizens, called a meeting and
tho matter was thorpugh.Iy diecyssviii.
It was shown that at a majority of the
places where tho experiment had been
made, the efforts wore rewarded by a
copious fall of rain. The meeting
recommended the purchase of 2,000
pounds of dynamite, and appointed
a committee to wait on tho couuty com
missioners and solicit an appropriation
of county funds to meet the oxpenssr
This committee had a conference with
the commissioners Monday and the
members of the board recogmzia& tho
condition of the crops and that anything
that might aid in producing rain should
be encouraged promptly, agreecl that
they would appropriate sufficient money
to purchase 2,000 pounds of dyaamite.
