DANDELION AS WEATHER BAROMETER
S'reness of the muscles, whether
indu.ed by violent exercise or injury,

The dandelion is a dandy barometer,
said a local student of the habits of J
flowers, Monday afternoon," Several
flowers show similar habltsi : but the
dandelion Is one of the commonest
and most reliable. It is when the
blooms have seeded and are in the
fluffy, feathery condition that the
weather prophet faculties come to the
fore. In 3ne weather the ball ex
tends to the . full, but when rain ap
proaches it shuts like an umbrella. If
the weather is Inclined lo be showery
it keeps shut all the time, only open
ing when the danger from- the wet is
The ordinary clover . and all its
varieties, including the trefoil, and the
shamrock, are also barometers. When
rain is coming the leaves shut to
gether like the shells of an oyster and
do not open again until fine weather is
assured. For a day or two before
raiu comes their stems swell to an ap
preciable extent and stiffen so that
the leaves are borne more upright
than usual.- This sU.m swelling when
rain is expected is a feature of many
. The fingers of which the leaves of
the horse chestnut are made up keep
flat and fanlike so long as fine weather
is likely to continue. With the com
ing of rain, however, they droop as if
to offer less resistance to the weather.
The scarlet pimpernel is nicknamed
the "uoor man a weather glass or
wind cope 'and opens its flowers ouly
to fine weather. As soon as rain is ;n
the air It shuts up and remains closed
until the shower or storm is over.
; The Wind Prophets.
The city man on the porch smoked
and listened to the farm hand's talk.
"Weather vanes is wind Indicators,"
said the farm hand, "but chickens and
turkeys, by crimuS, is wind prophets."
"Come off." said the city man.
"Gospel truth," declared the farm
hand. :In a cam, when there ain't
goiu' to be no wind, the birds alius
roost on the tree boughs with their
heads alternatin' each way No. 1 facea
east, Ko. 2 west, No. 3 north, and bo
on. That's a sign of cam. But sup
posiu' there's goin' to be a strong,
high wind. Then they all roost, every
mother's son of 'em, facia' it Ac
cordiu as they face so you can proph
esy the wind will blow before morn-tn
"1 figger It out." said the farm hand,
"that in a cam" the bunch faces dif
ferent ways so as to look out for dan
Ser better. But if It's goin' to blow;
tip lu the night then they face the
blow fo's they can best hang on to
their perch. What I can't flgger oat,
though,, is how in the mischief they,
smell that wind five or six hours be,
fore It's doo." New York Press, jj
-Rheumatism is due to an excess of uric acid, an. irritating, inflammatory
accumulation, which gets into the circulation because of weak kidneys,
constipation, indigestion, and other physical irregularities which an usually
considered of no importance. Nothing applied externally can erer jreaoh
the seat of this trouble; the most such treatment can do is soothe the pains
temporarily; while potash and other mineral medicines really add to the .
acidity of the blood, and this fluid therefore continually grows more aorid '
and vitiated. Then instead of nourishing the different muscles and joints, '
keeping them in a normally supple and elastic condition, it gradually hardens
and stiffens them by drying up the natural oils and fluids. Rheumatism can.
never be cured until the blood is purified. - 8. S. S. thoroughly cleanses and ,
renovates the circulation by neutralizing the acids and driving the cause '
from the system. It strengthens and invigorates the blood so that instead
of a soar, weak stream, depositing acrid and painful corrosive matter in.
the muscles, joints and bones, it nourishes the entire body with pore, rich
blood and permanently cures Rheumatism.- S. S. 8. contains no potash,
alkali or other harmful mineral, but Is made entirely of roots, herbs and
barks of great purifying and tonic properties. . Book on Rheumatism and
any medical advice free to all who write.
