Huerta's demand for immediate recog

Hot Where Port Byron Man Foresaw

It Would Be Warm.

novel by "the prince of American story tellers1' is

J. M. SHERIER. Local Forecaster.
S. C. Braganza de la Coralla, the
meteorological expert of Port Byron,
who was going to give the United
States weather bureau "cards and
spades" and then "show it up" on prog
nostications, batted .000 last week, for
which he promised much, says the Chi
cago Record-Herald, wbieh continues:
'First among his meteorological find
ings was a five-day deluge which nev
er delufed. Weather observations
failed to show general rains in any
part of the country during the week.
"Second was a forecast of disasters,
such as powder and mine explosions,
that were to accompany the low baro
metric pressures in the storm areas.
Not a single explosion was reported.
"Third, he pictured an important
storm that was to creep out of the
Rockies and sweep to the Atlantic
coast It was to be a storm with a
bosom full of fiery thunderbolts and
it was to be preceded by a dense man
tle of gloom. That did not material
ize. EVE THIS FAILED HIM.
"Lastly he declared that all the tran
sient barometric pressures were going
to congregate in, the central states on
August 12 for the purpose of 'breaking
the backbone of the dry spell which
bad been doing such damage.' On that
the weather records show him to have
been three days from the mark.
"Aside from those stellar point3 the
meteorologist threw in a lot of less
important prophecies about tempera
ture and the like, which he can hardly
say were fulfilled. Along with his
other promised phenomena he ar
ranged a free ing temperature for the
northwest states, where for the last
week the newspapers have been re
counting heat fatalities.
"The meteors played the Port Byron
man false, for in almost 4 very instance
the weather observations were found
to be directly contrary to his predic
tions. Where he looked for heat it got
cold. Where he had scented cooler
weather it got warmer.
"If he can get any consolation out
of light local showers he will find
some of them in the weather records
for the week he selected for demon
strating his superiority over the gov
ernment preaicters. As the weather
men said Saturday: 'You can always
predict showers. They'll comewhere
in this great country.'
PRAISE HIS IMAGINATION.
"Senor de la Coralla has in past
years attracted much attention to him
self by antagonizing the weather bu
reau. At different times' he has made
predictions for weeks in advance
which have worked out to the letter.
"In his last effort, however, the j
senor went further than ever before, j
He tried to 'dope out' the coming activ- j
ities In atmospheric pressures to the
point where he could say about what
time the meteorological effects were
going to cause downfall of aeroplan
ists. "He had figured out that the air con
ditions were going to be responsible
tor spontaneous explosions of powder
magazines. He forecast the disturb
ance of carbureted hydrogen gas in
the seams of mines which was going to
occasion terrific explosions.
"On many occasions he has chal
lenged the government weather men
to meet him before r.cientific bodies in i
London, Washington, Paris or ' any-,
where. He is willing to piive full ex-.l
planation of his weather philosophy to J
the Nobel institute or the British As-'
sociation for the Advancement of
Science. ' j
"He wants his system to become the:
common property of the world. He!
proposes to educate the human race '
to the point where knowledge of th j
weather months in advance will be;
available. In the opinion of the gov-
ernment weather authorities the best
thing Senor de la CoraHa ha3 is his
pictures will be presented with a ball
at the opera house.
