the War a Ralastorm la Prodace
a toe Stage.
Probably not more than one person
in a hundred stops to consider bow a
rainstorm Is produced on tbe stage.
Few perbaps liave ever given the subject
any serious thought.
During tbe coining up of the storm
there is seen vast clouds of dust, tbe
wind blows a gale, and suddenly the
rain comes down In torrents. It is an
effect so natural that one almost imagines
the elements are genuinely on
tbe warpath. Yet, though the rain Is
real water, not a person Is actually
drenched, because the water comes
down at the very front of the stage,
while the players are well back and
not at all exposed to its moisture.
It might be thought that to produce a
storm many intricate bits of machinery
would be necessary, yet such Is not the
case, for the simplest devices produce
the effect desired. These are some gas
pipes punctured by myriads of boles,
through which the water runs from
small barrels, each about half full, at
either end. The sound of the wind is
made by a revolving .-barrel wblcb
touches a heary piece of canvas In Its
rounds. The thunder effect is oaused
by the artistic manner in which a man
beats a bass drum, and tbe gusts of
dust are blown across the stage by an
electric fan. Tbe flashes of lightning
come from an electric battery connected
by wires which when placed in contact
throw out tbe dazzling flashes. A
metal plate, which had been specially
prepared by first being heated to white
beat and then scratched by a knife, is
placed l a calcium light machine and
gives tht effect of lightning in the distance.
