REGISTERED AT THE
C. OF C. HEADQUARTERS
That one of the finest yields of
grain ever produced In the history
of Sherman county will bo harvested
this year is due to the operation of
Charles M. Hatfield, the rainmaker,
in tho opinion of the farmers of
Sherman county, who have contract
ed for Hatfield's return next year,
says the Portland Journal. Hatfield
worked in Sherman county from
May 28 to July 25 of this year, and
the committee says he produced a
rainfall far surpassing the normal.
Mr. Hatfield was at the Imperial
hotel last night on his way to his
home at Los Angeles. He left Port
land on the morning train. He says
rain Is not produced by the old
methods of bombarding the sky, but
by a system of chemlacl combinations
and electrical Influences which cause
the moisture that is in the atmos
phere to be precipitated.
The normal rainfall In Sherman
county during the period of tho rain
making operations Is a little more
than half an inch. Hatfield claims
to have produced 7.1 inches, an In
crease of 250 per cent over the nor
mal. "I gave five demonstrations In
Sherman county and al of them were
followed by rainfall," said Mr. Hat
field this morning. "In al my ex
periments, extending over five years,
I have made 48 demonstrations, and
never failed to lying rain.
"My contract with the Sherman
county people begins next year on
May 1 and extends to July 10, a
longer period than this year's tests
covered. Tho normal rainfall for
that county from May 1 to July 0 Is
one Inch. If I ,do not increase the
rainfall I get nothing. If I increase,
It one Inch I get Sl,00u, and If I
Increase. It an inch and a half or
moro, making the total rainfall (24
inches or more while I am there1, I
gto $1,500. This year I received
from W. M. Barrett, who owns a
wh'eat farm in Gilliam county, 30
miles from where I made tho tests, a
draft for 50 for the benefit I had
caused to his crops.
"This winter, beginning November
15, I will bo at Crow's Landing, Cal
ifornia, between Stockton and Fres
no for the third year. Their normal
rainfall for the past 40 years had
been 5 inches for the period of my
tests. During tho first year I pro
duced 12 Inches of rainfall, and last
year It was 15 inches."
Financial considerations do not at
tract Mr. Hatfield, Ka says, his object
at present being to secure govern
ment recognition of his process. Ho
believes that immense benefit would
result to semi-arid districts all over
tho United States from tho uso of his
method by tho government.
When asked whether ho believed
that his method would supplant Irri
gation projects, Mr.1 Hatfield said It
doponded largely on tho conditions.
Ho answered that rain cannot bo pro
duced whoro there Is no molsturo in
the ntmosphero, and says tho best re
sults nro obtained whero there is a
cortaiu amount of rain, which Is in
sufficient for agricultural purposes.
In such places lie can increaso tho
precipitation, ho says, enough to
mako agriculturo practical.
Tho rainmaking plant used by Mr.
Hatfield Is operated by himself and
his brother. Paul A. Hatfiold. Noxt
year tho plant In Sherman county
will bo located on uie banks of tho
Deschutes river, about ono mile from
Its confiueuco with tho Columbia,
thus becurlng greater advantages by
reason of tho moisture which fills the
canyon of tho river.
Fully one hundred couple, among
whom Were represented the "Elite"
of Marshfleld, were present at the
Rink last evening, when the first of
tho series of dances was given. The
music rendered by Prof. Cundiff was
excellent and everybody seemed to
enjoy tho impromptu affair thor
oughly. There are only two moro nights to
."see the "Famous Kentucky Feud"
pictures. These pictures are con
sidered masterpieces of motion
photography, and are thrilling" and
sensational, as well as Interesting
from an historical point of view.

Remark of Visitor.
Tho Baptist Young People's So
clety held its regular mdnthly busi
ness meeting at the home of the
president of tho society, Claude
Stutsman, last night. There was a
large number in attendance and after
the regular business had been at
tended to games and a social good
time were enjoyed. The most Im
portant game was a guessing contest.
Each couple was giren a penny and
a set of questions to be answered by
some representation on the penny.
Miss Edith Gulevson and her partner,
Dan Keating, won first prize. The
booby prize was won by F. Stewart
and his partner. During the evening
refreshments were served the guests.
A transfer of business property
took place yesterday, wherein Levi
Hisner becomes owner of the Mulloy
livery business. Mr. Mulloy takes
the freight business formerly con
ducted by Mr. Hisner, and will con
tinue it from the the premises where
he has been for soma time past. The
Hisner livery will be installed In the
barn on Third and A streets, owned
by Mr. Hisner. Mr. Hisner bought
all the livery equipment owned by
Mulloy, Including horses, buggies,
hearse harness and all the material
which goes to make up a livery outfit.
A stranger In Marshfleld remarked
yesterday that this city Is undergoing
greater progress than any city in
Oregon, considering tho population.
Ho Is probably correct in his state
ment, for there Is something build
ing in every part of Marshfleld, and
even on tho outside borders. The
north has just experienced tho spirit
of building, and two houses are go
ing up between here and Ferndalo.
The building to tho southward ex
tends to MlUingt.on and Flagstaff,
while the Smith improvements, which
overshadow all else In extent, adds
greatly to the records being made in
that direction. Railroad addition
sees new residences being started
every day, and West Marshfleld is
doing her share of building. Go
where you will In Marshfleld and you
will see people busy in excavating,
building, or moving houses away
from old foundations to mako room
for new and moro modern structures.
