Superstitions About the Wwtkm
Popular superstititiona about the
weather linger long, and in spite of the
teachings of science people persist in be
lieving that seaweed huug np in a back
yard will become damp at the approach
of rain, or that a similar indication is
to be f ennd in the fact that a pig is seen
hewing straw. Mr. Richard Inwards,
the president of the Meteorological soci
ety, it is needless to say, has no belief
whatever in such methods of piophevy-
ing the weather. What belief could be
more firmly rooted in many people than
the belief that if it rains en St. Sw it li
ra's day it will rain for 40 days? "An
unadulterated fallacy," such is what
Mr. Inwards calls it, yet in spite of the
evidence accumulated upon the subject
by the Meteorological office, people go
on putting faith in it as though there
were no such thing as experience. Then,
again, it is said that a full moon will
clear away clouds, and that a change of
moon cn a Saturday or a Sunday is an
indication of floods, although not a lit
tle evidence in favor of either belief
has ever been adduced. London News.
