. Discussion on Rain-Making
Not Entirely Fruitless.
We regret to note that our esteemed
contemporary, the Tampa Times, Js
: going to glv up the rain-making- ar
' moment. Under an editorial heading,
"A Fruitless Discussion, the Times
Our esteemed" contemporary, The
Pensacola Journal, continues to take
pride in Its isolation, in combatting
the world-known and well-authenticated
fact that continued heavy can
nonading produces copious rainfall.
It la not probable that the protract-
I' d discussion of this amoject would
justify the consumption of the time
- required and the occupying of the
wpace that could easily be filled with
more interesting and edifying matter.
So with this article we will dismiss
the subject, whether it rains or not.
Our skeptical friend quotes from a
former editorial of ours this sentence:
Ab far back as there is any record
great battles have been accompanied
or Immediately followed by heavy
rainfalls," and. then demands from us
a little authoritative- data on the
Our duties are much too exigent to
permit our bestowing the necessary
time upon looking up citations of au
thorities In perhaps dozens of volumes
of histories. We do not keep in our
sanctum a sufficient library to fur
nish ruch authorities, and when we go
home we go there to rest we don't
carry the shop with us.
We do, however, remember from our
general reading that copious rains are
mentioned in connection with most of
the great battles that have been fought
since the invention of gunpowder. It
Is an historical fact, mentioned in
many accounts, that the battle of
Waterloo was accompanied and. fol-
lowed by heavy rains and by at loast
one of the writers this is referred to
as impeding the movements of the
We also remember navtng conversed
on this subject with numerous veter- j
ans of the Civil war, from both sides,
and they all, without exception, sr-oke
of the fact , that the heavy firing al
ways brought rain.
It is impossible to answer more defi
nitely the questions of our contem
porary as to specific records of rain
fall at certain places, showing com
parative amounts upon different dates
or for different periods, for, as he
well knows, at the time inquired of
there were no meteorological record
kept anywhere in the world.
We would in all kindness remind
our friend that ridicule and sarcasm
are not argument and generally form
the last refuge of those who find
themselves destitute of more substan
We certainly hope our contemporary
is not in earnest about giving up this
interesting discussion. If, also, The
Journal's light remarks have been con
strued as ridicule or sarcasm, we right
now beg our contemporary's pardon.
But if "the world-known and well-
authenticated fact that continued
heavy cannonading produces copious
rainfall" Is a fact, there ought to be
no trouble in citing an authority or
two in substantiation of It.
It ought not to bo necessary to
search "dozens of volumes of histo
ries' to produce some scientific au
thority for these "world -known" facts.
Why not borrow a text book frin
some public school pupil nnd see what
that says about rain? Better still,
simply telephone your local weather
man for data on the subject. If he
hasn't got It, he will write to Wash
ington for It and will get you copies
or extracts from the scientific works
on this very question of cannon and
What's the use of having friends
and public servant? If you don't use
them? These woather bureau men are
always obliging and they will be glad,
we are sure, to answer your telephone
requests by sending you the best of
everything that all the scientists have
written about artificial rain-makinsr.
Why not let the weather-man settle
In the meantime, if this little dis
cussion has done nothing more than
to get "some of the younger generation
to thinking about this long-since ex
ploded theory that noise will make
rain, it cannot be entirely fruitless.
The "learnedly ijmorant gentleman
who writes editorials for the Florida
Times-Union"' is tle way the Chicago
Journal refers to him. This is the
most accurate and expressive descrip
tion we have ever read of the ponder
ous intellect that burdens the editorial
tase of our Jacksonville contemporary, i
Hon. Robert II. Anderson, of Pen
sacola, representative-elect from Es
cambia county, announces that he is
working on a bill which he will in
troduce at the coming session of the
Florida legislature looking to the guar
anty of bank deposits. As the meas
ure is one that will affect state banks
very materially If it becomes a law,
Mr. Anderson should take the public
into confidence by publishing the bill
so that bankers and depositors can
pass upon It. legislators can pas
upon it. Legislation of this character
should have the widest publicity. Ap
A "Decided Reputation"
Congressman Emmett Wilson, of the
Third Florida District, Is getting up
a decided reputation for violating
pledges and placing members of his
family in federal Jobs. W. Chipley
Jones of Pensacola, Is one of Florida's
best democrats. He managed Emmett
Wilson's campaign and Congressman
Wilson urged him to make the race
for postmaster- he promised Chipley
Jones that he would be postmaster. He
told Chipley Jones "not t& worry" as
there was but- one candidate for the
Pensacola postmastershlp, and hat
was Chipley Jones. But when thi
time came to act Congressman Wilson
turned his back on his benefactor
violated the pledges he had made, and
recommended R. S. Hancock. Of
course they are roasting Emmett Wil
son in Pensacola and in West Florida,
Chipley Jones had the strongest en
dorsement ever given a norlfilan for
such an office. Emmett Wilson said
so. But something crept over the
spirit of Emmett Wilson's dreams.
Chipley Jones entered the postmaster
fight because Emmett 'Wilson begged
him to do so. The congressman is )
placed in a bad predicament, because
Chipley Jones is considered more pop
ular in Pensacola than Emmett Wil
son. Chipley Jones has done much for
Emmett Wilson and Wilson shows that
he did not deserve the confidence and
friendship. Jacksonville Dixie.

The flames had gained considerable
headway : before being discovered and
persons who entered the house after

was considerable warmth, showing
that the fire raged between tic

the Satsuma becomes better known.
Grow Satsumas Along the Gull Coast
These splendid oranges can be grown in northern Florida, southern
Georgia, and along the Gulf Coast section to Texas. Taber'a Satsuma
trees are budded on Citrus triibliata, which makes for hardiness. They
are crown under the same natural conditions that are found in most suc
cessful groves, and are strong, healthy, thrifty trees. When you plant
Taber trees, you plant for quick profits.

Contains a complete list of the best varieties of Oranges, Grapefruit,
Peaches, Plums Pecans, Persimmons, Grapes, Figs, Roses, Vines, Orna
