Why Halts Kalla in llrnps.
Its lucky for us that it does. If
rain fell In a stream, anyone .aught
under it would he drowned
Th. re is a good reason why It can't;
a rain cloud Is not a tank, and the
water is not In a liquid ?tute.
A cloud Is lust a mass of vapor.
When a. cold wind blows It. It turns
to water.
But a mass of water cannot form
In the air; It la too heavy.
So each drop clings to a partble
of du?t and falls with It. I hit* "clean?
