I was dreaming about a meeting Tor the rainmaker, as wn uhvuys (jailed those meet- ings, and the Majestic Theatre at Burdett was filled with farmers when J entered I he building.

A few years ago I commenced to get vibration iu the air, produced by electricity. Sometimes I had sue- cess, auother time none at all.

"Under- neath each balloon is lied n- big dyna- mite slick entirely enclosed in a box ot" paper filled with suit powdered as line as flour, only the fuse is stick- ins out the box. This fuse is made to burn from 30 to :i5 minutes. BO the balloons have plenty ot time to reach the clouds before the explosion takes place. To protect the fuse from the dampness iu the air it is surrounded with a piece of metal. The balloons j are made to carry from- 50 to GO j pounds extra weight, i "Gives His Secret" "As the clouds are very higher than two miles the length of j five balls of hiudertwine will be suf- j flcient that the balloons can go tip into clouds. I have here a dozen of these balloons and I want to make you a present of them because 1 dis- appointed you." There was more applause, the duration, of which was still longer the first time and it was more noisy. When Mr. Hatfield had a chance to speak again he said: "I have told you the construction of {he I balloons, now I will give you some f instructions how to use them. I ul- j ways let three balloons go up at the same time 011 three different places, forming a .triangle and about 10 or 12 miles apart.

UP circulation of the air that will cool the clouds below their saturation Dark Clouds "I am -trying1- now to improve the way producing rain. This method is based on the principle that warm air can hold more moisture than cold uir. The _-color of the clouds depends on the temperature and the amount of moisture there is in them. The most moisture can be expected to be in j dark blue clouds, which several times appear iu the summer. When those clouds are not cooled they will he moved away with the wind. If those clouds could be cooled below their saturation point a certain amount ot moisture 'would come down, iu the form of rain. "My Idea to cool these clouds is as follows: I will go up in an airship a Tew roils above the clouds and with. a specially designed spraying machine for that purpose, I will spray ether I and compressed air in every direc- j tion. The ether will quickly evaporate j in the air, hut to do so it needs 1 warmth .which It will take from the surrounding air. The compressed airj will expand immediately and it also takes warmth-from its surroundings. That will cool the air above the clouds and. the cold air will settle down on I the clouds which. will- be. cooled 60 much that it is Impossible to hold all the moisture and tho surplus part will come down in the form rain. The spraying must be done very care- fully, otherwise .it may prodifce hail {instead of rain; of course the cooling j can go a little below the freezing I point without, any danger.

It is notable that the value of tho 1920 production was greater than for any-pre-war year, though not so great as in the war years 3917.and 1918.

"Dry Farmers" expect that within five or ten years this method of rainmuking will I be hi general use, perhaps with the exception of a few irrigated 'dis- tricts; ot course, the occupants of such farms will be called dry farmers by that time.
