Tin; Pied 1'ipur, you may romonilier, offered to remove all. the rats from Hitmlin Town if Uie " council would ;rivc him ;nmich iruilders. ljut when the last-gray rat liad lumbk'il into the river tlio council changed its mind, so the merry Piper tlid a wholesale kidnaping stunt ami locked the children up in a lull. Now Dr. George Ambrosias luiman- ucl Morrison Sykes, the director of an organization which he culls Hie Weather Control Bureau, lias niiid'j uu offer to the live boroughs of New York City that he will replenish the city's water supply at the rate of £25,000 an inch or for a flat guarantee of ?350,000 for 12 inches of rain over a period of 90 days. ilore than a year ar;o, at the Belmont races, Dr. Sykcs had n contract to n- ceive ?1000 a day. if ho could hold off the rain that wcclt. But the last day it sprinkled occasionally so he had to ^ forfeit $2000, although he received i>ay. m;nt for the other days.' If Dr. Sykes-is able to take charge of ' the/rain, people with too much money will have another diversion. They can call up the weather magnate and prescribe the kind that they want. Farmer.- will be able to chip in and order so many inches of rain m the way that they co-operate to buy feed by the carload. , ( -"• WcnOioi-. ...forecaster.-? won't.-:-know • what to prescribe. The water witches, who used to BO around th;> country locating hidden springs, with a crotchcd stick, could ' havo a'-ken move money if they had drawn their watw from the sky instead of the earth. 1 But .we'll tf|a'e a raiiicoaL along only when tlvi government meteorologists say it is going to storm.

GKORPIA BAY On Feb. 12, 1713, General James Ogtclhorps, a member of the Enc- llEh Parliament, founded Georgia. Oglctliorpa had petitioned Kins ' Uecrge II lo grant him ami his associates a charier for a tract of land for 21 years, in the southern part ('f South Carolina. He had three objects in view: 1. To give the worthy and honest jxx>r. of England—especially thos; confined In debtors' prisons—an opportunity to begin life anew In the new world. 2. To furnish a refuse to the pcr- fecuted Protestants of southern Euroiw. 3. To protect the Carolinians against the attacks of the Span- lards of Florida by building up a settlement on the southern frontier. The Immigrants settled on the i Savannah River, from which they i named the town 1 Savannah, and named the new colony Gcoreh, In licnor of the king.
