Forec.asting the Weatner.
Of 111 the scieutitc deartments the
weather bureau was star'ted with the
least :ronnt of knowle: of its pa:

Iut neteorology was a verv iudetinitc
thing, strongly tibered with bad guos
es. myths, traditions and theories. It
wans like the German grammar of
which Mark Twain, complained. For
every page of rules there were forty
pages of exceptions. When the weath
er bureau was started it was with lit
tle worth while. It had to map out a
,ampaign of study, and there was no
way of telling how long it might be
before the study would permit of the
ha yim:z down of rules. Every one
kuows that the bureau is far lore etil
cient thau it was. It is getting the
hangr of the weather. learning its mul
titudinous tricks. its coyness and
treachery. It is in the nature of tht
case a slow affair.-Toledo Blade.

The Druids were evidently of very
great antiquity. for there cannot be
much doubt that it was one of their
customs that Virgil had in mind when
he wrote in the "Aeneid." vi. 142. that
. the "only means of access for a living
mortal to the world of spirits was the
carrying of a golden twig which grew
in a dark and thick grove." The re
semblance of the story to the Druidical
rite is perfect. The Druids practiced
their rites in dark groves. If a mis
