RAINFALL DID NOT COME.
C Lombard y, a trumperter In B Bat
tery, Third Field Artillery, of Fort
Bliss, Tex., agrees with Prof. "Willis
Moore of the Weather Bureau that rain
cannot be caused to fall by the firing of
high explosives Into the air as claimed
by a Texas farmer a few days ago.
"I have been in the Rocky Mountains
for fifteen days target practice," said
the trumpeter, "and during that time
we fired off enough guns to hae
caused a cloud-burst If explosives fired
Into the air will cause rain, but it did
not rain a single drop during thoe fif
Mr. Lombardy also states that while
at Comfort. Tex., on June 23, 1910, a
wealthy farmer expended 11.100 on powder
and other high explosives which he dis
charged Into the air to cause rain, but
it was a waste of money as no rain felL
He stated that he had seen twenty-four
three-Inch guns flred for four hours at
a time and no rain fell.

The Teti Commandments
Applied to Fair Typists
Mistress of the Keys Tells Reporter How Ideal
That land whereof Kipling sang.
"Where- there alnt no ten command
ments." Isn't the lan(i for the typist.
One of them said so yesterday, when a
reporter interrupted her to ask her what
she thought were the best rules for a
stenographer and typist to follow to win
She thoughtfully played "Now Is the
time for every good man to come to the
aid of his party," on her machine, her
pretty fingers making It sound quite like
a fugue, certainly quite as Intelligible to
the reporter;- and then she livened Into
a staccato rendition of "The Quick Gray
Then she spoke, the while her fingers,
like a musician's, toyed with the discs.
"I don't mind telling you If you prom
ise not to use my name." said the fair
typist, . "that Just a few minutes ago I
made out "ten commandments" for ste
nographers and typists.
"Of course. It Is not my business to tell
people how to behave, and It Is not my
desire, either. But If I do aay It myself.
wno Should be the last to do so. these
ten commandments make a pretty safe
line or conduct.
"I dare say you know as well aa I do,
even If your pencil Isn't very sharp, that
employers differ. Just aa employes differ.
I always say. 'I am different, you are
different, he Is different, we are different,
you are different, they are different "
Just why she always makes that con
Jugatlve remark, the fair typist didn't
explain. Instead, she plsyed "Quietly
wandering" In a strain of "dolce far
nlente ma non troppo" that proved she
had perfect control over her machine.
Then she resumed i
"But here are the commandments, and
though I got them up only for myself.
I should feel both proud rand glad to
think they might have helped some girl
that couldn't get up any commandments
And with that, the fair typist wrote
with Incredible swiftness the following:
Thou shalt have no other employer;
BROKEN CRANE EXPENSIVE.
District Paya 5 Centa sa Yard More
Until the hoisting drum of the crane
at the District sand wharf, which was
recently broken, is repaired, the local
authorities will be required to pay an
additional amount of five cents on each
cubic yard of material brought to the
city from down the Potomac
As the crane Is temporarily out of
commission. It Is Impossible to place ad
ditional material upon the wharf. The
present supply of concrete sand Is only
about seventy-five yards, so the situation
Is rather a serious one. Because of the
Inadequate supply of sand and gravel on
hand. It will be necessary to receive the
materials at the contractor's wharf. This
change will lnvohe an additional cost
of five cents per cubic yard.
Upon the recommendation of M. C
Hargrove. District purchasing officer, the
Commissioners yesterday authorized the
expenditure of additional funds to meet
the exigencies of the case. The contract
prices for materials are as follows:
Building sand, 3 213 per cubic yard; con
crete sand, 3.35 per cubic yard; and
screened gravel. 3 S5 per cubic yard.

FLOCK TO CAMP BUTT.
Every Day Boy Go and Return
from the Summer Resort.
That the youngsters who ar. spending
their vacations at Camp Butt, near River
View, are having a vacation which they
won't forget for some time is evidenced
from the way in which additional boys
are Joining the camp from day to day,
and the looks of satisfaction on the faces
of the campers who have returned. The
steamer Black Arrow arrived yesterday
with a new boat-load of boys, and will
return for some more.
The campers spent a strenuous day by
generally reorganizing the baseball and
basketball teams, the Whites and Blues,
as the teams are called, electing new
captains. Edwin LInder and John Stock
ett were elected captains for the Blues
and Whites, respectively. The first bas
ketball game of the week was won by
tho Whites, the score being 11 to 8. The
baseball game was also captured by the
Whites, the score being 9 to 5.

Ellta Returns to Tsvlnlne City Afte
John F. Ellis, of Twining City, who
returned home Monday night after an
absence of ten J ears, during which he
was thought dead, last night told the
impressions of a returned wanderer. He
said his experience reminded him of
Rip Van Winkle's story, for though it
seemed but yesterday that he went away
as a high school boy, he found those
whom he hsd left as children now
grown persons. The little suburb, which
consisted in a few scattered houses when
he left, has grown into a well-built
Besides servtnc; three leara as a sol
dier In the Philippines. Mr Ellis has
wandered all over the West from Ne
braska to the Pacific Coast Neverthe
less, he now finds Twining City very
pleasant, and will probably remain there
and go Into business.
His return has created a great sensa
tion in the little town. He Is holdins: a
perpetual reception at his home, and on
the streets he Is an object of admira
tion and wonder

and boats on the lake.
