California Rainmaker Asserts He

Do It Again.
Pasadena, Dec. 9.California has pro

a mere mortal with the Olympian power
to pull the heavenly puckering string
that lets the raindrops drop? Charles
Hatfield, whose family is one of the
well-to-do in' southern California, and
whose father owns one of the largest
ranches in San Diego county, seems to
be the answer. He says he's it that
he caused the recent storm in face of
weather bureau predictions to the con
trary, and stopped it, contrary predic
tion's notwithstanding. Jupiter Pluvi

According to Hatfield, he has quit
business for a time and that, altho the
government meteorologists say there
will be more rain, clear weather is on
his card. He has bottled up his chem
icals and called in his affinities and to
morrow will take down his plant and
send it to Los Angeles Monday, to fol
low himself the next day.
How He Did It.
Discussing the recent storm, Hatfield
"The storm which I have developed
in the last five days is over. You need
not expect any more rain in Pasadena or
LOB Angeles today. This is-'my twen
tieth experiment since I went into the
business on a scientific basis three years
ago next April. Nineteen of these tests
have been entirely successful. The only
failure was in San Diego county two
years ago last July, when I succeeded in

Pays His Own Way.
Hatfield- says his next experiments
will be made either in San Diego or
Ban Bernardino county, so far as he
knows at this time.
Many persons want to know, who is
backing me in these experiments," said
Hatfield. "And I wish you to say that
I am receiving no financial aid. I have
a grand thing in this rain-producing
secret, and I can well afford to pay for
my experiments until such time as I
can effectually demonstrate the value of"

MADE A FALSE AFFIDAVIT
Conscience-Stricken Woman Confesses
to Perjured Oath.
FARGO, N. D.Conscience stricken over mak
ing a false-affidavit twelve years ago awoman
now residing in Washington state has written
the local land office officials confessing her
crimp. She says she made a homestead entry
in Barnes county twelve years ago and swore
that he was 21, when she was only 19. Later
on she \ras married and removed to Washington
and became a member of the church. The knowl
edge of her false oath bore heavily upon her
she wrote the officials, who decline to make
known her name.
The Fargo Commercial Club has issued an In
vitation to the mayors and representatives of the
city councils of Grand Forks, and other towns
in the state to meet here to devise some plan
for needed legislation this winter. Some of
the towns want a charter revision.
The board of edacation some time ago voted
that one of its members, J. P. Dahlquist, should
take the school census required this month.
There wis a protest against having a member of
the board do the work, especially as it was
necessary for Dahlquist to vote for his own ap
pointment. An investigation showed the plan
was illegal and the census is being taken under
the direction of the secretary, as formerly.
