Old-Time Resident of Storkville Center-Remarkable
"I doubt if any man ever had a more
singular experience,"' said Col. Calliper,
"than once befell to the lot of my old
friend, Stephen Gizzbunkler, who for
merly lived in Storkville Center, Vt.
Mr. Gizzbunkler, like most of us, had
his peculiarities, the most conspicuous,
perhaps, being his habit of always car
rying an umbrella. No matter what the
-weather nor what the signs might be,
lie never went out without an umbrella ;
he knew it would be sure to rain if he
did. Where he got that impression I
don't know. He may have been out
some time in his youthful days in his
best clothes without an umbrella when
it came on to rain.
"Some years ago when they began
milking the curious and costly experi
ments in the arid regions of the far
west, firing explosives from balloons,
aind one thing and another, to produce
rain, Mr. Gizzbunkler, standing one day
with his umbrella under his arm, in the
Storkville Centre post office, perusing
the newspaper which he had just taken
from the mail, said:
-" 'Why do they waste all this
"money in mere experiments when they
could get rain with certainty and at
far less cost? Why don't they send for
" 'What could you do?' asked a neigh
bor who was standing near.
" 'Why, I could go outwithout my
umbrella,' said Mr. Gizzliunkler, and,
amazing as it may seem, it is not the
Jess certainly a fact that he wrote to the
mayor of a town near which some of
rthese experiments had been conducted
offering to go there and produce rain
for his expenses. It shows the con
suming desire for rain on the part of
the people and their readiness to take
any chances to get it, that they imme
diately sent for Mr. Gizzbunkler a
draft for the money to come on with,
without even asking him how he was
going to produce rain.
"When Mr. Gizzbunkler arrived at
the town he was met at the railroad sta
tion hy a delegation of citizens who es
corted him to the hotel; later he was
waited on officially by the rain commit
tee of the town council, who, in the
presence of the reception committee
and a large number of other interested
citizens, asked Mr. Gizzbunkler his
"They had some queer people in this
town at one time or another, but Mr.
Gizzbunkler appeared to them to be
the most useless person they had ever
had there. At nrat they thought they
would kill him at once; that there
would at least be some slight saving in
shipping him back as freight; but
Stephen was bo obviously a well-meaning
man that finally they thought they
would give him a trial, which they did
on the following day.
"It was a day on which any other man
in the . world would have left his um
brella at home, anyway. Stephen
Gizzbunkler was about to leave his at
home for, the first time in many years,
and he was equally confident of what
would happen. He had been a little
shaken personally, by the attitude of
the people after' his simple plan had

the success of his plan was quite un
broken. He laid his umbrella careful
ly across the foot of the bed in his
room at the hotel, looked at it almost
lovingly, and then went, down to meet
"They walked, Stephen ahead, the
rain committee and the reception com-
ittee next, and then after them the
eople, along the dusty road.
Did it rain? No, no, no. It seemed

too, that the corn shriveled up cs. he
passed, and that the last blades of grass
They gave him one more trial the
next day, with the same result, and
then they took him back to the railroad
station. They had taken him away
from the station in a carriage; they
carried him back on a rail; but this
was a matter of detail that almost es
caped Stephen's attention at the time,
so glad was he to get back at all.
"On the day after Mr. Gizzbunkler's
return to Storkville Centre he went out
without an umbrella; he had had a
great experience, and he had been
somewhat impressed by it. Possibly
he had l?een mistaken all these years
and he thought he would see. But that
day there came a storm that swept
away every bridge in the county, and
which washed away, too, whatever im
pression the extraordinary experiences
in the arid regions had made upon the
mind of Mr. Stephen Gizzbunkler.
Thereafter until he died Mr. Gizz
bunkler carried an umbrella always, aa
firm as ever in the belief that it would
rain if he went out without one." N.
Russian Press Rales.
The Russian minister of the interior
acting under instructions from the
czar, has alleviated the severity of the
press Taws in all the larger towns and
cities of -the empire, in fact wherever
the ipopulation is over 100,000, by ex
empting the newspapers from the ob
ligation of submitting all articles on
political subjects to the censor before
publication. Hitherto only a few ol
the principal papers at St. Petersburg,
Moscow, Warsaw and Odessa have en
joyed the immunity.

the '-mine they are said to be eo soft
that they can often be crushed into wet
paste with the fingers.
