The Lakeview Examiner say that there is some talk of getting Charles Hatfield,
the rainmaker, up there in order to have him punch up old Jupiter Pluvius and
have him get on to his job of giving mother earth bath. His services would be
mighty acceptable down this way, also. A great deal of fun is being poked at the
rainmaker. At any rate, he pulled down eight thousand dollars for making it rain
in the lower country. A good rain here now would do an immense amount of good
just now for the ground is getting very dry, and unless rain comes soon, the
crops here will be every short.
