It Must Have Been Pretty Thick Baefc
In the Old Days.
"Yaas, it's foggyquite foggy," said
Hezekiah Torpyhue, filling his pipe and
puffing -vigorously on the stem. "But
it ain't nothin' to the fog we had back
in seventy-nine By gorry, boys, but
that was a fog, an' no mistake! Why,
it was so thick that when I went out
to the barn on night to feed the ani
raals I had to git three o' the farm
hands to come along behind me an'
push me through it."
"Yaas," said Hiram Wigley, the egg
king, "that was some fog. I remember
that there seventy-nine affair very
well, but It warn't a marker alongside
o' the two we had in seventy-eight,
when me an' Joe Sillsbee had to take
a plow to cut our way through to the
henhouse, an', by ginger, when we
got there we found the hens a-settin'

A mid-eighteenth centuo traveiei
who is the nrst person known to ha\e
made English of the word "shampoo.'
wrote that "shampooing is an opera
lion not known in Europe and ii pe
culiar to the Chinese, which 1 had once
the curiosity to go through, and for
which 1 paid but a trifle. However,
had I not seen several Chinese mer
chants shampooed before me 1 should
have been apprehensive of danger,
even at the sight of all the different
instruments." The original "sham-
poo," as this traveler's detailed ac
count and other allusions for long
after his time show, was very much
what we call "massage" now. It was
from India that the word really came,
and it represents the imperative of a
verb meaning to knead.
WIND AND WAVES.
A Gale's Action Upon Water, Desert
Sand and Prairie Snow.
There are wind waves in the water,
sand and snow. The great sea waves
are produced at that part of a cyclone
where the direction of the wind coin
cides with, the direction of advance of
the depression. Along this line of ad
vance the waves in their progress are
accompanied by a strong wind blowing
across their ridges as long as the at
mospheric depression is maintained.
So the waves are developed until they
become steep. The average height in
feet is about half the velocity of the
wind in miles
A wind of fifty-two miles an hour
gives waves of an aveiage height of
twenty-six feet, although individual
waves will attain a height of forty
feet. The prevailing wind in all longi
tudes is westerly, so -wherever a west
erly wind springs up it finds a long
westerly swell, the effect of a previous
wind still running, and the principal
effect of the newly born vvind is to
Increase the steepness of the already
running long swell so as to form
majestic storm wa-\ es, which some
times attain a length of i 200 feet
from crest to crest The longest swells
due to wind are almost invisible dur
ing storms foi they are marked by
the shortei and steeper waves, but
they emerge into view after or beyond
The action of the wind to duft dry
sand in a procession of waves is seen
in the deserts As the sand waves
cannot travel by gravitation, their
movements are entirely controlled by
the wind, and they are Therefore much"
simpler and more regular in form and
movement than ocean waves In their
greatest heights of several hundred
feet the former become more complex
owing to the partial consolidation of
the lower layers of sand by pressure,
but they still have the characteristic
In the Winnipeg prairies of Canada
freshly fallen snow is drifted by wmfi
in a procession of regular waves, pro
gressing with a visible and ghostlike
motion. They are similar to desert
sand waves, but less than half as
steep, the wave length being fifty
times as great as the height The
flatness of the wind formed snow
waves affords a valuable indication of
the great distance to which hills shefc
ter from the wind.Chicago Tribune.
