SAN BERNARDINO, April 22.—Tho
grain and hay crops are saved.. (A.
bountiful rain began falling this morn

ing almost continuously, until late this
afternoon, the ground getting a good
soaking all through this section, in
cluding the great hay and main grow

The precipitation for the day 1 thus
far amounts to more than a half Inch
and the indications are that it will bo
considerably greater before the storm
is over with. On the mountains the
rain has been a great deal heavier.
The past .month the hot north winds,
together with lack of rain, has threat
ened to completely ruin the late sowed
hay and grain, and the outlook was
becoming quite discouraging In some
districts. But the rain has put new
life Into the ranchers as well as busi
ness men In general and now there is
no reason why the season should not
be one equally as good as any of re
cent years. Orchardists as well as the
other classes of ranchers will also bene
fit materially by the rain, as they have
been compelled to irrigate to keep the
orchards In shape.

VENICE, April 22.—A stiff south
east breeze, resulting in a choppy sea
and accompanied by frequent heavy
showers, kept all would- be visitors oft
the battleships today and disappointed
a'large number of people who came
.down . from Los , Angeles and other
.points early in the morning in the
hope of getting aboard one of the war
vessels before the k crowded hours.
Seas broke derisively over the Wind
ward avenue breakwater. Small craft
of all descriptions broke loose from
their moorings and went ashore at
various places along the strand. The
piers at Pier avenue, Hollister avenue
and North beach shook in a way that
made the timid tremble. Only the four
great men-of-war themselves, riding
indifferently at their anchorages far
out upon the troubled waters of the
bay, seemed unaffected by the lively
battle of the elements.
Shortly after noon a dense fog, roll
ing In from the ocean, added to the
chaotic aspect of the scene. A pelting
rain accompanied it, and the speed of
the wind reached Its highest point. The
fog, 'however, lifted in a couple of
hours, the rain stopped and the wind
began slowly to die down. At about
4:30 the sun came out and the gale
sank to ! the proportions of a modest
breeze. By sunset It was almost calm,
with a promise of good weather to
Women Forced to Return
Early In the morning a party of wo
men of the G. A. R. Women's Relief
corps and the W. C. T. U. started to
board the whips to present the men
with comfort bags, according to a pre
arranged program, but the freshening
of the breeze forced the launches car
rying them to return to the break
water without reaching the vessels. .
Coxwaln C. Hammond, In charge of
the first cutter of. the battleship Mis
souri, came near meeting death among
the cement covered piles that support
the Ship hotel. The cutter. in tow of
a steam launch, had brought a liberty
party ashore early In the morning and
was moored alongside the private
launch Avalon, behind the Windward
avenue breakwater. Under the Impe
tus of a particularly heavy sea the cut
ter carried away the gunwale of the
Avalon, and it was decided to remove
her to a safer place. A steam launch
towed the cutter clear of the other
boats, but off the end of the break
water the cable parted, fouling the
propeller of the launch and leaving the
cutter drifting In toward the piles of
the Ship hotel. Hammond, who was
in the cutter, jumped just before the
frail craft struck the piles and suc
ceeded in < swimming ashore.
Midshipman Malson of the Missouri
saw the mishap from the wharf. Fol
lowed by a launch crew and several
volunteers. recruited from a liberty
party he waded out among the piles
and with the help fit his men hauled
the "cutter high and dry onto the beach.
The crew of the Avalon also assisted
in the rescue.

OCEAN PARK, April 22.— Herbert
Richmond, one of the extra newsboys
employed this week to help supply the
large demand for Heralds among the
officers and men of the battleships now
at anchor in these waters, had an ex
perience yesterday such as seldom falls
to the lot of any civilian, whether
newsboy or otherwise .
Herbert was selling ills papers on
board the Ohio during' the usual morn
ing hours, and in sonio manner, per
haps not altogether unintentional,
neglected to come ashore before tho
good ship weighed anchor and stood
out for San Pedro to lay in supplies.
His own account of the exact reason
for his being carried off is somewhat
vague, and his friends are strongly of
the opinion that he deliberately stowed
himself away in tho hold until the Ohio
was well started on her way down the
coast. At any rate, on the Ohio's re
turn to this beach last night ono of
the ship's launches brought'ashore a
radiantly happy boy, who declared ho
had had the time of his life and who
vowed that for openhanded hospitality
to expected or unexpected guests Uncle
Sam's sailors cannot be beaten any
