Stole a Wheel.
During the noon hour Monday C. K.
Harrison left his wheel standing out-
tdde of the drug store at :U2 Hrady
street, and when he went after it the
bike was missing. Mr. Harrison at
once suspected that it had been stolen
and derided to make a trip to Rock
Island in search of it. Within an hour
he located it in a pawnshop across the
river, where it had been put up by a
young man alwnit half an hour earlier.
The thief had evidently mounted the
wheel and rode directly to Rock Island
and lost no time in disjtosing of it. He
was a stranger to the proprietor of the
pawnshop, and Mr. Harrison was al
lowed to bring his wheel home wilh

Boys Had a Fire.
Officer Icke brought three young
culprits to the police station yester
day, charged with arson. Their fath
ers came with them, and a session of
the juvenile court was held. The three
boys had racked up :5'' feet of side
walk lumber which the loard of public
works had piled in Park Lawn, and
called It a jail in play. Mischievously
they filled the inner space with dried
Brass and fit her combustibles, and one
of the boys ignited It. and a merry
bonfire resulted which cremated the
lumber. One of the lads went to Rock
Island to escape arrest, but when he
returned to this city Monday he was
taken Into custody. The magistrate
. questioned the boys, and after learning
the story, lectured them and later al
lowed them to go upon their fathers
paying- for the lumber destroyed.

Milk Wagon Smashed.
There was a great smashing of win
dows and milk bottles, breaking of har
ness and wagon, and general destruc
tion around Fourth and Brady streets
streets yesterday when Dairyman G.
A. Moffat t started to leave the Mason's
Carriage works with his recently re
paired milk wagon. Mr. Moffatt had
just hitched his horses to the wagon
and stepped inside the closed vehicle,
and been followed by his hired man,
when the horses started off on a dash.
It was a short half block down Perry
street to Fourth, and they were in full
tilt as they swung west into Fourth
street. There they dashed across the
south curb and walked into the win
dow of the Maass Livery company of

John Soller, chairman of the board
of supervisors, relates that as he was
driving in on Farnam street north of
Iocust just after dark Monday even
ing, he was surprised to find himself
held up by a company of toys who
jumiM'd from behind a row of trees,
and ordered him to throw up his hands.
Mr. Soller had been at. the poor farm
and was driving back to his home ar
the time. He saw the boys at play in
the street, and also saw them run and
hide as he approached them. H
thought hide-and-seek was the game be
ing played. Suddenly .as he got up to
where the lads were, they jumped out
towards him and cried out: "Hold up
your hands." Mr. Soller simply used
his whip and beat off the would be
bandits, who fled.

are sometimes startled by a peculiar
sound, not unlike that made when a
musket is cocked. This sharp click.

val depending upon the rate of rainfall.
is made by the recording pen of the
rain gage register. Every movement
of the pen indicates that one-hundredth
of an inch of rain has been collected
in the gage upon the roof.
The rain gage itself consists of a
sort of funnel, exactly 12 inches in dia
meter, set over a cylindrical reservoir
The water falling within the collector
or funnel, is conducted into a tipping
bucket that has two equal compart
ments. This double bucket rests upon
a pivot in a frame, and, while rain is
falling, rocks in such a manner that a
compartment is always directly be
neath the small opening of the funnel.
After one-hundredth of an inch of wat
er has fallen into the bucket, it tips
emptying the rain into "the reservoir
and the other compartment, or bucket
is brought under the funnel to be fill
ed. As the bucket tips, it closes an
electrical circuit, causing the pen on
the register downstairs in the office
to make a short mark upon a record
sheet that is divided into spaces repre-
enting time and is moved at a uni
form rate by clock work, so that it is
possible to tell exactly what amount
of wai'r has fallen within any given
interval. As a check upon the work
done -iy the registering apparatus, the
water collected within the reservoir
of the gage is drawn off into a cylin
drical tube and measured with a stick
graduated to inches and tenths. The
area of the opening in the tube is just
one-tenth the area of the mouth of the
funnel, or collector, and the depth of
water in the tube is thus just ten times
the depth on the level. One-tenth of
an inca on the graduated stick is
therefore equal to one-hundredth of an
inch of actual rainfall. This multiply,
ing arrangement is used in order that
the measurement of small amounts of
rain may be made with accuracy.
Iliirometrr Kill I a.
Leaving- the rainfall register and
glancing at the record made by the
self registering barometer, we notice
that the line traced on the sheet shows
a steady fall that began some hours
before the rain commenced and Is
pitching downward more sharply as
the wind increases in velocity and
veers towards the south. The storm
may be of the type sometimes called
"northeaster," but. while the wind was
from the northeast before the rain
commenced, and for a considerable
time after it began, the morning map
probably showed the storm center to
be over Nebraska, moving towards the
northeist. This rapid fall in the bar
ometer, together with the increasing
wind elocity, and the shifting direc
tion, indicates that the bottom of the
great whirl in the atmosphere, or cen
ter of the storm, is not far to the west
ward of the obsetvation station.
In a former article on cold waves, it
was explained that the "lows," or cy
clones, or storm centers, shown on
"-iuni maps are vasi eoaies in tne
atmosphere that, besides having a ro
tary motion, move towards the east at
an average rate of about 3 miles per
nour. i ne circulation or the air
around these immense whirls is spir
ally upward and inward to the center,
in a direction e opposite to that tak
en by the hands of a watch. Along the
eastern and southern sides of the
storm, high temperatures and cloudy
skies are observed, with more or less
rain, while clear, cold weather prevails
to the westward and northwestward
When one of these disturbances is cen
tral over Oklahoma or Kansas, the
rain area sometimes extends eastward
to the Atlantic coast and northeast
ward to New- Kngland. The point of
greatest rainfall in well developed
areas of low pressure is generally
considerably to the southeastward of
KolloMrn Path of Ontrr.
Knowing thar. as a rule, rains occur
along the eastern side of the cyclone
the forecaster is, in most cases, chiefly
concerned in determining the future
path of the storm center and the rate
at which it will move towards the At
lantic. At all places in and near its
path, there is likely to be increasing
cloudiness, followed by rain, as the
storm center approaches: and these
conditions, will, in turn, be succeeded
by clearing and cooler weather as the
cyclone passes and the atmospheric
conditions along its western side are
Mountain ranges exert a powerful
influence upon the rainfall of a local
ity. In fact, the scanty rainfall of the
semi-arid portions of our country is
due to the location of those regions
with reference to mountain chains. An
ideal condition of abundant rainfall
exists when warm, moist bodies of air
encounter mountains and are forced
upwarls along their sides to elevations
where condensat:on takes place large
ly on account of the rapid expansion
of the air as it rises and Its consequent
coolin? in its ascent. Such air car
rents deposit the condensed vapor onj
the w-indwaxd sides of the mountain
range and flow down the leeward
slopes as dry winds, with an increas
ing capacity for moisture as they be
come warmer in their descent.
Rings around the sun and moon are
not considered in making official fore
casts, but they are often among the
first local indications of the approach
of a general storm. These halos are to
be observed In the light upper clouds
along the extreme eastern edge of the
area over which the condensation is
taking place. Taey are due to the re
fraction and the reflections of the light
rays from the ice crystals of which
the cirrus clouds are composed and
are frequently seen when the clouds
themselves are almost Invisible. As
the storm center advances eastward,
clouds of a heavier form appear and
obscure the sun or the moon.
C'lwailm A re Klevnted Koar.
Clouds are sometimes referred to as
elevated fog. and about the only dif
ference between fog and the lowest
clouds is that of elevation. When the
temperature of the air is lowered until
the water vapor it contains becomes
saturated, condensation begins, and the
minute globules of water, forming
cloud or fog .appear. As the degree
of condensation increases, the water
particles unite and form globules that
can no longer be buoyed up by the air
and the drops fall to the ground as
rain. Snow is formed under the same
conditions as rain, except that the tern
perature must be below the freezing
point. Thus cirrus clouds, in which the
halos are observed, outline the area
over which condensation is beginning,
while the region of greatest rainfall and
the point of greatest condensation are
Hope fur Improvement.
It is the hope of every honest worker
in the meteorological field that the time
will come when general forecasts can
be made for a month or a season in
advance. Reliable information of this
kind would be of inestimable benefit
to agricultural, commercial and other
interests. But, although a vast amount
of work has been done with this object
in view, it is impossible at the present
time to make reasonably accurate pre
dictions for more than 4S hours, or, un

frosts extended to the furthermost
southern limits of the state the first
part of the week. Timely showers oc

northern section the measurements
were heavy, and the fall was mostly
ample in the southern district, but in
the central district the distribution of
rainfall was not equable, being ample
in some localities and very deficient in
The growth of vegetation has been

in the central and southern districts,
and some early sown fields are up in
the northern district.
Plowing for corn continues in all
sections, and the work is completed in
many localities of the central district.
Considerable planting has been done
in the central half of the state.
The general condition of wheat is
favorable, but little advantage has been
made during the week on account of
unseasonable temperature. Rye main
tains a thrifty condition.

Potatoes are p:anted in the central
and southern districts, and the work is
rapidly progressing in the northern
district. Many patches are showing in
the southern district. Early gardens
were damaged by frost in the southern
tier of counties.
Damages to fruit by frost is not yet
well defined. That injury has been
done is the expression of many corre
tqiondents, but tho extent, of the injury
cannot well be determined until fur
ther development ensues. The great
est, damage will appear in orchards lo
