TEST YOUR BAROMETER.
It Is a Tricky instrument and Must Be
*Treated With Respect.
Don't expect a barometer to tell yol
he truth about the weather until yol
mve tested it thoroughly. Two comn
non causes for unreliability are all
md water mIxed with the mercury is
the tube. These can be expelled b:
soling the mercury.
In order to test a barometer let i
aang for a time in the proper position
then gently and with care incline It s<
that the mercury may strike agains
the glass tube. If theresno air with~
n you will hear a sharp metallic click
ut if the sound is dull mnd muffled i
ndicates the presence of both air ani
noisture. The presence of sir alone It
hown by minute bubbles.
I at any time the mercury seems te
dhere to the tube even In the slight
st degree and the convex surface as
wies a more flattened form It is saft
to conclude that either air or moistur<
s present. In any of these cases the
instrument should be put Into exper
hands for rectisication.
There are several kinds of barom:
eters. The ordinary "weather glass
tn common use Is more or less unre
liable and Is easily made more so b:
areless haudling. In fact, any baromt
