Rainmaker Is Not Yet Needed

Amidon, N.D. May 30—County commissioners who, in behalf of farmers, offered $5,000 an inch of each inch of rainfall in excess of 3.54, the normal for May and June, to Rainmaker Hatfield, are happy to think their sporting proposition which called for no payments at all unless the 3.54 inch average was reached. So far in May the Slope county districts have averaged over 3 inches of rainfall and indications are that the precipitation will reach over 5 inches before the close of June.
