E.J. writes: Your recent article on aboriginal rainmakers recalls the fact that in America some years ago a man named Hatfield was hailed as an authentic rainmaker.

I've been with them on "busters" at the little outback pub. Oh, the songs and recitations, and , at night how we would dance, Then for lighter recreation we would play some game of chance; I've heard some yarns with cattle when on double watch at night, How their horns and hoofs would ( rattle when they rushed off camp in fright. /Then we'd let the night horse have his head, of falls we gave no heed, Our whips would nearly wake the dead as we swung and rung the lead; How they "Yack hi" at the round yard as the colt ...
