EXPERT ON WEATHER,
How Mrs. Wilkin of Syraouse
Makes Her Predictions.
STUDIES CLOUDS AND WINDS.
Any One Can Do It, 8he Says--Has
Twenty-seven Signs by Which to
Forecast Weather Conditions With
out Use of instruments.
A little woman from Syracuse, N. Y.,
b making the weather seers, from
Itajor Hersey of Washington down to
the littlest clerk in the smallest weatb
er tower In the United States, sit up
and take notice.
The little woman Is Mrs. Eva Fran
ces Smith Wilkin, wife of Henry
Dwight Wilkin, a prominent citizen of
Syracuse. And, although she pro
fesses to be able to prophesy when to
wear your rainy day skirt and when
to sport your fall hat better than do
the weather bureau men with their
big towers and their little instruments,
she doesn't make any pretense to be
ing an astronomer, an astrologer or
even a scientist.
"All the signs are in the heavens, to
be read by any one who cares to do
so." she said to a reporter of the New
York Globe while visiting the metrop
olis, "and God's signs are better than
the signs of men.
"I began studying the clouds and
the winds in a desultory way years
ago. At school my favorite studies
were physical geography and astrono
my, but I never really made any se
rious experiments until within a year
or two ago. Since then I have made
several discoveries that are considered
"For example, I have .discovered that
there are seven signs which, appear
ing together sometimes, indicate fair
weather for a week ahead. By another
sign I can foretell the direction of the
wind for twenty-four hours. I pre
dieted the weather for ten days with
out one mistake. During the same
period the weather bureau predictions
were inaccurate three or four times.
"You see, the men in the weather
bureau sit gazing at little gauges and
thermometers, barometers, pluviome
ters and other mendacious inventions,
but they never look out of the window
at the clouds. I work without any in
struments except my eyes. Every
morning I spend an hour standing on
the highest point of ground I can find,
so that I can scan the entire horizon.
I watch carefully the changing pic
tures and groupings made by the
clouds and consider all the accompany
ing conditions before I make my
"Of course the weather bureau men
laugh at my methods, but they have to
admit the accuracy of my prophecies.
Major Hersey of the national weather
bureau in Washington has invited me
to go up in a balloon with him this
autumn to study the atmospheric con
ditions. He wishes to convince me
how much better it is to foretell the
weather by scientific methods." And
MIrs. Wllkin smiled as if she felt sure
of and satisfied with her own nature
"'Any one can find out the things that
I have discovered," she says modestly.
"There are books on physical geogra
phy to be had, and any one is free to
study and experiment. There is no se
cret process about it. Observation and
deduction are the basis of my predic
tions. There are twenty-seven signs
to judge by, and of course It is not
easy to reconcile opposing signs and
conditions. One needs a good deal of
practice to enable one to strike the av

Betrothal Bracelet a Delight.
There is no prettier token for a fian
cee than a bracelet, and every girl will
feel grateful to Prince George of
Greece for having revived this fine old
custom. He bestowed a betrothal
bracelet upon the Princess Marie Bona
parte at the time he slipped an engage
ment ring upon her finger, and since
then his example has been followed by
young men all over Eiurope. The fash
ion has come in at New York, and no
young woman's engagement now will
be complete unless sealed by both a
ring and a bracelet. The bracelet that
now encircles the princess' wrist is a
beautiful example of the goldsmith's
art. It consists of two bands of gold
chased in 'an antique designs. The
bands are studded with diamonds and
sapphires, and the clasp of each is a
heart of diamonds. To a young woman
who thinks a lone diamond ring all too
small a gift to mark so important an
event in her life as the engagement
the bracelet will come as a welcome

RAILWAY BEAUTY SPOTS.
Phlox and Hydrangeas For Stations.
Blue Grass For Right of Way.
One of the good things ft, which
people have to thank the railroads is
the progress they are making in beau
tifying their right of way.
It is the practice of the Pennsylva
nia, as Moody's Magazine points out.
to surround its passenger stations,
which are practically the doorways to
towns and cities, with little parks with
terraces and gracefully curving paths
and roadways. To care for these sta
tlon parks is part of the duty of the
maintenance of way department, just
as it is to keep the rails and ties in
good order. Flowers and shrubbery
are planted in artistic plots, and gar
deners keep them fresh and flourish
At a station on the Long Island rail
road, which is a subsidiary of the
Pennsylvania, 600 trees and shrubs bei
sides beds of phlox and hydrangen.l
were set out this year. For another
station on the Long Island 425 shrubl
and twelve trees have been ordered of
the so called perennials and ever.
In the open country, too, far from
towns, the Pennsylvania has adopted
the policy of making its right of way
pleasant to look at. Slopes of un.
sightly rock or dirt are transformed
into green terraces.
Henceforth the standard roadbed,
when the tracks are in a cut, will in.
elude the sodded slopes. Blue grass
used for sodding will prevent the ero
sion which has given engineers so
much trouble in times past. in helplng
to solve the drainage problem the grass
