Description:

For centuries we have had with us all sorts of "weather makers," but only during the last few decades has science actually begun to get some vague results in artificially creating rain or sunshine. In England they are experimenting at present with a machine to disperse fog. In California, extensive experiments have been made to produce rain by sending electrically-charged kites or balloons aloft. And the dispersion of clouds by electrified sand has had some success.

In this interesting story a novel scheme has been woven—not at all impossible from a scientific standpoint. Who knows that at some future date a scheme such as developed here may not come about to serve humanity? You can not fail to be interested in this story. -- intro. [Suggest a different description.]
