' J7 vT t - ' WRIGHT BESIDE HIS "GUNS." which he had beau years in aecutuu latinc. For Mr. Wripht be'.ives in the "con cussion theory" of rain production. Several attempts have been matie to nroduce a downfall of moisture in this matmr, but Wright used a unique and 1 novel method. He dec'.ares that there j Is no such a thing as evaporation. Hviiroc-en and oxygen are present in i the atmosphere all the time. The ! former gas is the lighter and keeps , ascending, leaving the heavier below, j To produce rain it is only necessary j to mix the two gases by moans of air j currents, create enough electricity in the atmosphere to unite them and await results. With this end in view he has con structed 23 mortars and in his test kept them in action for 14 hours. The "guns." as he calls them, were ar ranged in groups of five forming an immense circl?. Each gun was fired an an average of once a minute. In the construction of the apparatus Mr. Wright spent over a thousand dollars. In addition he paid for the half ton of powder which was consumed in the experiment. Neighbors in the vicinity volunteered their services in discharg ing the "guns." At six o'clock in the evening the bombardment was commenced. All through the night the "guns" flashed ami roared. There was a slight inter mission at midnight and a lunch was served. The party ceased their ef forts from pure exhaustion in the mid dle of the forenoon of the following day. On the day following the cessation of the cannonading there was a smart shower hi Lincoln, and local rains were reported from various sections of the state. Whetner 'Kammaker ' bright -aused it or whether the downfall of process as evaporation . he declares, "It has nothing whatever to do with the precipitation cf mois ture. Oxvcen and hydrogen go back into the atmosphere in the shape of gases. Hydrogen, being lighter than oxygen, gradually ascends to the up per strata of the atmosphere. Oxygen remains below. To produce rain you must cause the w fies to mix and fuse. Mv apparatus creates ascending air currents. These spiral mctsonaia the air mix the hydrogen and oxygen. Concussion and friction create elec tricity and this causes the gases to fuse." As a result rain is produced. "With :5 guns 1 can cause rain in circle C5 miles in diameter. What is more, 1 cm take five guns and break up a hailstorm or stop a cyclone. My experiments on clouds the maneti tvpe conclusively prove this. Tor nadoes and cyclones are only clones with highly magnetic centers. By n-J theory you can create electricity enough to disperse these clouds. "In serving in the artillery curing the eivi! war I one clay noticed the dis persion of a small tornado which swooped down on a regiment of ar tillery in action. I have studied on the question ever since. Ten years ago I formulated my theory about the value of concussion in dispersing such storms and have only waited for means to put it to the test. I have experi mented on clouds of the magnetic type and now have a group of guns ready for the genuine cyclone when ever' one takes a notion to come this way and give me a fair chance." In Lincoln Mr. Wright has aroused fully as much comment as William J. Bryan. Bitter attacks have been made upon him in the local press, which Mr. Wright occasionally undertakes to an swer. At times h.s sanity is aouoteii but on this subject he never makes re plv. For a score of years he has been advocating his theories and from the first has been locally known as the "Rainmaker." During his experiments Mr. Wr'ght has faithfully kept a record of h.s ex periments. He has announced his in tntion of coin? before the next ses sion of the legislature and askirg that stations be established in al! parts of the state for the purpose of bringing rain by the concussion method.

Ko only by Th Amerteao Fhaf HoilOo, (Inc.), fcraiKTUIa, Ind. r , - moisture resulted from purely natural causes has b'en hotly debated from that cay to this. The "rainmaker" promptly claimed it in fact predict ed that it would come. The local weather bureau failed to forecast the showers, but the men in charge ridi culed the claims of Mr. Wright. The apparatus devised by Mr. Wright O'nsists of three parts the base, the mortar and the funnel. The base is a hollow, oone-shaped piece of iron rest ing on a wooden platform. In one side there is a hole which allows the gun to be fired by the application of a sdck of burning punk. In the base the powder is poured, about two ounces being used for each charge. A lever at one ide of the platform lowers the plank on which the base rests and thus allows the powder to be poured in The charge is tamped with paper and immediately fired. The mortar is simply a hollow con tinuation of the base grooved at the bottom to rest securely on the base and so constructed that the funnel can be placed on the top of it. 'i be funnel is made out of sheet iron and resembles the horn of a huge phonograph. Inide of it, strips of sheet iron are fastened in a circular manner. These strips, Mr. Wright de clares, will cause ibe hot air produced by the explosion of the powder to is sue from the mouth of the funnel with a well defined rotary motion. The funnels are placed on top of the mor tars, tied down by three strings which are fastened to atakes driven in the ground and the contrivance is ready for action. The 25 guns Mr. Wright placed in position In a huge circle in his corn field, Hia assistants arrived and the firing began. When the bombardment ceased, the men were exhausted and the funnels on 12 of the guns blown apart. After predicting a speedy rain, the flushed and perspiring inventor threw himself on a bed in his farm house and was soon fast asleep. In a small cottage just outside the limits of the city ot Lincoln Urea "Rainmaker" Wright, He is short of s-taUire, 'of nervous temperament, bronzed and weatherbeaten. He is about 50 years of age. For 20 years tie has studied the conditions govern ing the precipitation of rain. Two years ago he published a book attack ing the established and popularly ac cepted theories governing the forma tion of clouds and the conditions nec essary to produce rain. This volume he published at his own expense and distributed it free of charge. The profits of his farm for the lust tea years have been ,saved for the pur pose of making one grand experiment to demonstrate his theory, and this he believes he hat done.

JAP OFFICERS HONORED. Many ot Them Receive Mnrka ot Dis tinction lor Thrlr Services In Chlnn. Many of the chief officers connected with the Japanese expeditionary forces sent to China during the re cent "boxers' " rebellion have been rewarded for their services by receiv ing the next higher class of the orders already held by them. Vice-Admiral Togo and Lieut. Col Shiba, however, are treated excep tionally, being raised two rankx. Col. Shiba thus becomes holder of the third-class Order of the Rising Sun and the third-class Order of the Kite. It is difficult to arrive at an ac curate estimate of the value of these decorations from a foreign point of view. Perhaps the best comparison is to say that a third-class in Japan corresponds with an Knglish compun ionship, a second-class with a grand cross. A second class 1b compara tively difficult to obtain, the theory being that some specially signal service must be performed to estab- linh a title to it. Mai. fien.

I.: 1. Read current literature and keep posted on new ideas. 2, Observe and enloree me utmost cleanliness about the cattle, their at- endanta, the stable, the dairy, and all utensils. 3. A person suffering from any dis ease, or who has been exposed to a contagious disease, must remain away from the cows Bnd the milK. 4. Keep dairy cattle in a room or building by themselves. It is prefer- ble to have no cellar below and no storage loft above. 5. Stables should be well ventilated. ghted and drained; should have tight doors and walls and be plainly con structed. 6. Never use dirty or musty litter. 7. Allow no strong smelling materi 1 in the stable for any lengthof time. Store the manure under cover outside he cow stable and remove it to a dis ance as often as practicable. S. Whitewash the stable once or twice a year; use land plaster in tne manure gutters daily. 9. Use no dry, dusty feed just pre vious to milking; it fodder ia dusty, sprinkle it before it is fed. 10. Clean and thoroughly nir tne stable before milking; in hot weath er sprinkle the floor. 11. Keep the stable and dairy room in good condition, and then insist that the dairy, factory, or place where the milk goes be kept equally well. 12. Have the herd examined at least twice a year by a skilled veterinarian. 13. Promptly remove from the herd any animal suspected of being in bad health, and reject her milk. Never add n animal to the herd until certain it is free from disease, especially tuber culosis. 14. Po not move cows faster than a comfortable walk while on the way to place of milking or feeding. 15. Never allow the cows to be ex- cited by hard driving, abuse, loud talking, or unnecessary disturbance; do not expose them to cold or storms. 16. Do not change the feed suddenly. 17. Feed liberally, and use only fresh, palatable feed, and in no case should decomposed or moldy material be used. IS. Provide water in abundance, easy of access, and always pure; fresh but not too cold. 19. Salt should always be access! ble. 20. Do not allow any strong flavored food, like garlic, cabbage and turnips, to be eaten, except immediately after milking. 21. Clean the entire body of the cow daily. If hair in the region of the udder is not easily kept clean it should be clipped. 22. Do not use the milk within twen ty days before calving, nor for three to five days afterwards. 23. The milker should be clean io all respects; he should not use to bacco; he should wash and dry his hands just before milking. 24. The milker should wear a clean outer gnrment, used only when milk ing, and kept in a clean place at other times. 25. Brush the udder and surround ing parts just before milking, and wipe them with a clean, damp cloth or sponge. 26. Milk quietly, quickly, cleanly and thoroughly. Cows do not like unnec essary noise or delay. Commence milking at exactly the same hour ev ery morning and evening, and milk the cows in the same order. 27. Throw away (but not on the floor, better, in the gutter) the first few streams from each teat; this milk is very watery and of little value, and it may injure, the rest. 28. If in nny milking a part of the milk is bloody or stringy or unnatur al in appearance, the whole mess should be rejected. 2!). Milk with dry hands; never al low the hands to come in contact with the milk. 30. Do not allow dogs, cats or loaf ers to be around at milking time. 31. If an accident occurs by which a pail full or partly full of milk be comes dirty, do not try to remedy this by straining, but reject all this milk and rinse the pail. 32. Weigh and record the milk given by each cow, and take a sample morn- ng and night, at least once a week, for testing by the fat test. 33. Remove the milk of every cow at once from the stable to a clean, dry room, where the air is pure and aweet. Do not allow the cans to re main in stables while they are being filled. 34, Strain the milk through a metel gauze and a flannel cloth or a layer of cotton as soon as it ia drawn. 35, Aerate and cool the milk ai soon as strained. If an apparatus for air ing and cooling at the same time is not at hand, the milk should be aired first. This must be done in pure air, and it should then be cooled to 45 de grees if the milk is for shipment, or to 60 degrees if for home use or de livery to a factory. 38. Never close a can containing warm milk which has not been aerat ed. 37. If cover ii left off the can, a piece of cloth or mosquito netting should be used to keep out insects. 38. If milk ia stored, it should be held in tanks of fresh, cold water (re newed daily), in a clean, dry, cold room. Unless it is desired to remove cream, it ahould be stirred with a tin stirrer often enough to prevent form ing a thick cream layer. . 39. Keep the night milk under shel ter ao rain can not get into the cans. In warm weather hold it in a tank of fresh cold water. 40. Never mix fresh warm milk with that which baa been cooled. 41. Do not allow the milk to freeze, 42. Under no circumstances should anything be added to milk to prevent its souring. Cleanliness and cold are the only preventives needed. 43. All milk ahould be in good oon dition when delivered. This may make it necessary to deliver twice a day during the hottest weather, 44. When cans are hauled far they should b full, and carried in a spring wagon. 45. In hot weather cover the eanB, when moved In a wagon, with a clean wet blanket or uuim. 46. Milk utensils should be made of metal and have all joints smoothly soldered. Never allow them to be com rust or rough inside. 47. Do not haul waste products back to the farm in the same cans for at- livering milk. When this is unavoid able, insist that the skim milk or the tank be kept clean. 4S. Cans used for the retnrn of skim milk or whey should be emptied and cleaned as soon as they arrive at the farm. 40. Clean all dairy utensils by first thoroughly rinsing them in warm wa ter; then clean inside and out with a brush and hot water in which a clean ing material is dissolved; then rinse and lastly sterilize by boiling water or steam.

THE FALL ARMY WORM. A Peat Aavalnst Which I la Important that Helentlee anil tneenalnn War b Made. This office has had a great many complaints the past few days con cerning some worms which are at tacking everything green in the fields and eating it bare of all foilnge, etc. Reports indicate that it has stripped or eaten the foliage oft sorghum, June corn, turnips, crab grass, early sown wheat, cow peas, as well as many other grasses and weels. From some specimens sent me, I And that the pest in question is the fall army worm, called laphygma frugi- perda. These worms when lull-teu ind ful -crown enter the grounu iu ranstorm into tne tnnu "i ""j"1;" stage. From this tliey emerge ogam as moths or "millers" and deposit their eggs. Each female deposits any where from 300 to 700, and hence their rate of increase is simply as tonishing. In Texas there are two, and sometimes three broods or gener ations. The outlook for north Texas is that there may be a brood this sea son yet, following the present one. The fact that the worms go into the. ground to transform makes it im portant to do a great deal of winter plowing this year, so as to break up their cells and destroy the pupae or chrysnlids. It will also be best to fol low infested lands this season with some cultivated crop next spring in order that the pupae may be broken up and destroyed before the moths have a chance to hatch out for tha next season. It will also be important to make a determined fight on the pest now by poisoning the crops and plants they are attacking mid feeding upon now, in order that another outbreak may be averted next season. Thoso having spraying apparatus may use the following: Take one pound of I'aris green, make a paste with some water; then add to 150 gallons of wa ter mid mix well; then take one pound of quick lime and slack in wa ter and strain; then odd this lime water to the poisoned water, and spray the plants thoroughly. If you have arsenate of lead, use one pound of it first, well dissolved in a gallon of water, and then ndded to 100 gal lons. Spray the infested crops well, and you will destroy the worms by the millions. For those who can not spray the following will lie a valuable and im portant manner of attack: Take the i'aris green or London purple and mix one pound of it well with ten pounds of flour, and then simply dust the crops being injured well with this mixture while dew is on. Any of the poisons and preimrations mentioned will kill the pest by the millions and will help reduce their numbers ao this season that their appearance next season need not be feared very much, Shal lie glnd to hear of all those, farm ers who have lost crops from their attack, and nlso report on the . results obtained from the application of any of the ways and means and remedial measures above indicated. In this connection it may be well to to call attention to another matter. It is important that this department finish its investigations and tests of remedies nnd ways and means of suc cessfully fighting the "green bug" of wheat, but our funds are exhausted, and we are watiing for the present legislature to either give, us those funds or discontinue the work, It will e largely as the peoplo wish it, and f the wheat growers and other farm ers in north Texas will speak up and write their members in the house nnd senate to liberally endow this depart ment with enough funds to continue this work, it will most likely be well provided for. It is important to act at once, as the appropriation bill is being discussed in the house now, and there must be quick action, if any good is to be done by your writing and request. Fred W. Mally, profes sor of Entomology College Station, Texas. The floathweat Corn Crop. The corn crop of the southwest is still standing iu the fields, and every blade and even the stalks are dry enough to burn like prairie grass in December, and the ears, or nubbins, as the cose may be and often is, are standing erect to catch whatever rain may fail, so that soft rot may aid the boll-worm in reducing the crop and enhancing the price. In some cases the ears have been gathered, and the stalks broken down, piled and burned, to be out of the way of the plow. It would have been better, of course, to have cut and shocked the entire crop in July, thus not only Raving the en. tire crop, for feed, but making it pos. sible to plow the ground early enough to put it in the best possible condl tion for fall sowing of grain. It is a well-established fact that deep break' ing and immediate sowing is not : good practice. The grouiid shoul have time to settle through the influ ence of time and favorable showers, before the seed is put in. Anyway the corn crop is short, and haa been made shorter by not harvesting all of it. Farm and Ranch. As everything concerning Bishop Galloway is interesting, not nlono to Methodists of Mississippi, but to poo pie of all denominations who take pride In the honors that have come to this distiiigulsueu son ot me ouiuj, we cive suace to the remarks he made before the ecumenical confer ence in 6ondon upon the occasion of the session held to deplore the shoot ing of President McKiuley. The speech as taken from the Methodist Recorder, published next door to Wesley Chap el. London, is so beautifully worueu that I ho Hocnrder CHVO it Clitil'O, ttlld we do likewise, as follows: "Mr. President and Brethren of the Conference: I wish 1 could command mv reclines this morniug so that I could speak what is in my heart. How profoundly grateful we are, ns brethren of the otlier slue oi me se,i, and citizens of the United States, for the sentiments that have been ex pressed by our brethren here. We remember twenty years ago when our president was stricken down by the bullet ot an assassiu, how earnestly you prayed for his recovery, and w remember that your gracious queen laid a wreath of flowers upon hia coffin and this whole nation followed at his bier, and joined us in weeping over the loss of our honored dead. "I speak for tho southern, section of my great country that section which was once separated from our brethren in the north by clashing In terests, and by an ever to be lament ed -war. I have long been glad that there was a star in our national flag that answers to the name of Mississ ippi, my native State. I live in the State of Jefferson Davis, who will go down to history as the chief of lost cause. I am sure today there is not a citizen in that great common wealth, nor has there been for many years, that has not rejoiced that we have been restored as a Union, that we are all members of the same great na tional family, that we set at the same bountiful board, and are all equally members In our Father's house, (Hear, hear.) We can not forget that others have done so much to bring u close toeether. nor forget the year of stormy war; we can not forget the noble words spoken by this Christian resident, who, in visiting our south ern section not many months ago and addressing those who had borne arms against the great principles which he thought to be right, desired that all the memories of that great struggle should be wiped away from the reel inss of our countrymen, and he Bug- crested that the graves of the Confed erate soldiers should be protected and decorated by tho government along with those which contained the fallen on the Federal side. "We at this conference talked yes terday about peace. William McKln loy was the incarnation ot peace. But above everything else he illustrated those private and domestic virtues which have made our country great, and which make all civilization great. Our president who was stricken down twenty years ago when inducted into his high office, delivered a wonderful inaugural address, which took the wings ot the lightning and went around the world and was very much appreciated. But before he received congratulation from any representa tive of State, or from those who were to be his counselors, he turned from the great throng of statesmen to re ceive the first recognition from his noble mother and impress a kiss on her brow. "Some years later, when our ey- President Grant passed away, we of the south sat by his bedside for weary eeks and months nnd saw that groat life go. And at last, when he was car ried to the summit of Mount Mc Gregor to die, one could almost hear tne puffing of the little engine that rew the train up the side of tho mountain, where, in its pure air, the great warrior could fall asleep. And looking down towards my beautiful land where I live, he lifted his thin, bony arms toward heaven and prayed the blessing of uod upon our section, and in the gloom of tlie grave asked that it should never again go to war. But what made him so great were those beautiful personal and domestic virtues, illustrated by the other presl- ont, and when the cities of our coun try were fighting with each other for the privilego of guarding his dust when he should die, unablo to speak, he motioned for a pen and paper and wrote: "I care not where they lay mo, so Julia sleeps by my side." And now our own president has been stricken, for whose precious life we so pray. Great as a statesman, distinguished as a leader, lofty in his patriotism, de voted, not only as a citizen of our great country, hut of our Methodism we know how he has illustrated those virtues In turning away from the cares of State to minister1 to the noble woman who has walked by his side so long. The country that has pure homes, and pure fathers and hus bands must be a great country, (Applause.) we reciprocate these kindly expressions from our brethren on this side of the sea, and I would ask that not, only should we send this message to Mrs. McKinley, but that we should send a message to President McKinley hlmseir, saying that the world wide Methodism prays ft-r hll speedy recover. . itnn for riravrry.
