Friday night banker Tom Varney, who hired Kills-ln-Sight when a Shoshone rain dancer declined the job, placed a long distance telephone call to the Sioux chief. Varney said Kills-ln-Sight told him that the failure ol the rain dance probably was due to lack of ammunition for the thunder- stick. He fired only three ho* it- zer shells. But while they were chatting. Kills-ln-Sight remembered. He recalled suddenly that he had omitted a crucial portion of the rain dance. So while Varuey listened on the paleface talks-by-w i r e Kills-In Sight stomped out the omitted steps. Soon it began to rain. And it rained. AM it rained.
