THE "COUNTRY JAKE."

of farmers' sons ami daugliteis are

WHY TELEGRAPH WIRES HUM.
Miiuy reasons have been given as to
why telegraph wires hum. Some !iv
that the sound is caused by the action
of the wind and others that it is the re
suit of change in temperatures. Prof
Field, of the University of Ottawa, says
that neither of those, evplnuntions is
(Grrrct, but that tho sound is due to the
vihiatinu of the earth. The vibration
of tho earth are transmitted to the wire
through the poles. This authority
fuither states that the sung of the wires
is the song of tho barometer and that
the variations are in direct relation to
variations of the weather. Changes in
tl.o vibration of the earth indicate ap
proaehing changes in the condition of,
tint atmosphere. If the sound of the
wiics is low it is probable that the
weather will change in a day or two,
but if it is sharp a momentary change
may bo expected. American Bov.
