NEWBERRY. S. C.
AGAIN THE RAIN CAME DOWN. t
It wao an Elaborate Attempt, and, After
a Bombardment of Many Hours, a
Rainfall of Half an Inch Fell In
Less than an Hour. E
[New York Sun.1 t
SA_ DIEGO, Texas, Oct. 18.-The
--oernment rain makers are the heroes
of the hour here. The experiment
which was begun yesterday evening
and continued during the night was
At 4 o'clock this morning rain fell in
torrents in the camp and soaked the
men to the skin. Never before were
men so glad to get a wetting. They
yelled and hurrahed and danced fan
dangoes in the mud.
The people of San Diego and the sur
sounding country are astonished at the
result. When they went to bed at
midnight the moon was shining in a
cloudless sky and there was no sign
of rain anywhere.
Four hourslater they were awakened
by the pattering and pouring of the
rain on the roofs, and in a few minutes .
it came down in torrents. The rain
continued for nearly an hour. When
it ceased the rain guage showed that
half an inch had fallen at this place.
Telegrams received this morning
from stations along the line of the
Mexican National Railroad say rain
extended about forty miles to the north
east, 108 miles to the west, and thirty
miles to the sourhwest. It did not rain
either to the east or to the south at a
greater distance than ten or fifteen
miles. The water this morning is
standing in pools all over the ranches,
and the cattlemen are delighted. They
estimate that the rain is worth to them,
- in round ffgures, at least a half million
dollars. It is also worth much to the
cotton growers. The entire cost of the
experiment was about $:,500, and they
regard it as one of the best invesiments
they could possibly have made.
The scientific value of the success
cannot be estimated, of course, but it
will undoubtedly lead to many more
tests of the concussion theory. Already
offers are hei::g made to the rain
makers togo to Mexico and experiment
The bombardme%' began in earnest
early on Saturday ;vening, and until
nearly midnight there was a continu
'ous roar from the dynamite and rocka
rock batteries. The full moon was
sailing across a cloudless sky, and the
hundreds of people who had come to
the camp were satisfied that the experi
ment would be a flat failure. They said
-that it was a beautiful imitation of a
battle, but that rain would follow
from such a say was absurd and impos
Many offered to bet heavily that no
rain would come, and some of the rain
makers took up the bets as quickly as
they were offered.
The heavy smoke from the batteries
drifted off to the northwest, and the
balloon also sailed offrin that direction
before they exploded. The instruments
showed 63 per cent.,. of humidity just I
before the firing began, and at 11 o'clock t
in the morning it showed 95 per -cent. I
The barometer was high and rising
diiring the early part of the evening,- I
but fell rapidly near midnight, when 1
the continuous firing ceased and five
*minute guns took its place.
Mr. Ellis, who was in charge, and
Mr. George Castler, the areonaut, sent
up the balloons at intervals of forty
The rose to the height of about half
a mile before exploding. The explosions
-were heard at points fifty miles and
- more away. Lieuts. Allen and Dyer
wa's in command of the batteries and
they were worked by the soldiers from
the Twenty-third Infantry.
*The men did splendid work and
added to the high esteem which they
have won here by their conducta
thioughout. Just before the rain came
down a balloon was. sent .up. The air
at the time was very still. The balloon
went straight up and then drifted to
the northwest, then came directly
south, then went off east, and at the
time it exploded was travelling west at
a rapid rate. MIr. Castler, who has been
making ascensions for many years,
said that he bad never seen a balloon
act in that way, and that the disturb
ance in the upper currents must have
It was 3 o'clock when the storm first
showed above the horizon to the north
west. The clouds came up rapidly,
and one could see them gather in size
and density as they approached the
zenith and drifted over the moon. A
small cloud would appear suddenly in
a clear part of the sky, and in five
minutes it would spread out enormous
A few minutes to 4 o'clock the sky
above was full of heavy clouds, but
not a drop of rain had fallen. Then a
balloon was sent up and exploded right
in the clouds, and the mortar battery
began shooting butts in rapid succes
In two minutes after the balloon ex
ploded the rain came down, and in
three minutes miore it was falling in
sheets, and little . vulets were runnmng
through the camp. At sunrise a dry
norther came, and in a short time the
storm clouds had been blown to shreds.
Mr~. Ellis is highly pleased at the results a
of the experiments, and every one here
agrees that the storm was wholly due
to the firing. r
The experiment really began on Fri.c
day. The only apparent result of the
bombardment on Friday was a very a
heavy dew. The oldest inhabitant,re
who in this case is aMexican, says tbat
it was the heaviest dew ever known u
here. As the expedition is not down
here to make dew, this result was hard
ly satisfactory, however interesting it
may have been from a scientific pointr
Mr. Ellis, the head cloud-persuader,
and Lieut. Dyer, the meteorological
sharp of the Twenty-third Infantry, 8
smiled sweetly when they saw the sun z
rise in a cloudless sky on Saturday, and -
said they were not in the least disap

Mirs. Anna A. Dodge Goer from the l'our
House to Fortune.
BrrrE, Mont., October 21.-Mis.
Anna A. Dodge, an inmate of the poor
house of this city, and aged :) years,
has received notice that she is heiress
to an estate worth 4:8,00),00. Her great
grandfather on her mother's side,
owned a vast estate near London. His
oldest .:on removed to America, set
tling in Virginia. Two children, Wil
liam and Annie, were born of this
marriage, the latter being the mother
of Mrs. Dodge. Their mother died and
bey moved to Kentucky,where Annie
marriL I William Coleman. The pa
rents died forty years ago, leaving Mrs.
Dodge and a sister. They moved to
Missouri, where Mrs. Dol"e's lusband
died twenty years ago.
Five years ago an article appeare,l in
an English paper telling of the estate
and the lost heirs, and the fact that the
estate was in the hands of the public
administrator. Mrs. Dodge hid the
case before a relative named 1Z-ss, re
cently of Minneapolis, and he wit io
London to investigate the matter. He
returned an encouraging letter, but
since then nothing was heard from
him, and it is not known whether he
has put the matter in the hands of her
nephew, William T. Colem~an, a very
wealthy canning manufacturer of San
Francisco or not. Meanwhile she came
to Butte to visit her daughter, Mrs.
Charles Ragsdale. She was taken sick,
and accommodations not being good
at the miner's cabin she was removed
to the poor house. She has now re
ceived letters confirming her right to
the estate, and has forwarded letters
and documents, the family Bible, etc.,
to prove her claim.

and I think you'll be convinced that
mine is the place. This season 1 have
been unusually fortunate in securing
bargains, and you'll find the largest
stock and nobbiest style in Fall and
Winter Clothing over sown in this
State. The prices will astonish, because
this is exclusively a Gents' Clothing
and Furnishing Store, and buying in
large quantities I get the average of
lower prices than can be had by those
carrying mixed stocks.
In boys' Clothing you'll certainly be
pleased with the stock I am showing
this season. It contaius a stock of my
own careful selection, and is so exten
sive and varied that youwl" find every
thing necessary and desirable. Iu ad
dition to Clothing, I have Boys' :ur

a complete outfitting depot.
In Underwear I have exclusive sale

EUSTATIA A. WED~AMAN,
Has it ever occurred to you that, in
5electing a company in which to assure
your life, there are three points which,
if correctly ascertained, will determine
beyond all question the best company
ror you to choose ?
Here they are:
I. SAFETY (or Strength) is all impor
tant: for an insurance contract is either en
tered into for a !ong period of years or for life
In the case of an insurance company (as
with an individual or with any other business
organization), strength Is determined by the
amount of assets OVER AND ABOVE ALL LIA
BLITIES: or, in other words, by the Surplus.
As the surplus of the Equitable Life Assur
ance Society of the United States On De0.
31st, 189, amounted to Twenty-three and Three
Quarter Millions (a sum many millions In
excess of the s.rplus held by any other Iife
company in the world), and as the Equitable's
ratio of assets to liabilities is 125 per cent.,
i e., $125 to meet each $100 of indebteduinm (a
percentage greatly In excess of that of any
other leading company), the question of
greatest safety m ust be decided in favor of
ASSETS. .-..........$l 19,243,744
