WEATHER PREDICTIONS VALUABLE.
Eev. M. J. Savage Save Gen. Greelv'a
Forecasts Are Nearly Aliraye Right.
In spite of the fact that I often hear it
said that the prophecies of the weather
bureau are generally wrong, the records of
1S90 prove that they were correct mora
than 8i per cent, of the time. And most of
the misses meant only that the predicted
change was a little earlier or later than,
the time set. Now, considering the ca
pacity of New England weather to outwit
the wisest prophet, I submit that this is a
most remarkable record. In the office as
Washington I examined a large map of the
United States, in which were speck pins or
pegs, indicating all the stations from which
reports are constantly received. These re
ports cover force and direction of the
winds, barometric conditions, temperature,
cloud, rain, snow, clear, all that are helps
to a knowledge of atmospheric conditions.
Twice a day lithographed maps are issued
and sent out all over the country. These
contain an accurate and graphic picture of
the conditions all over the land. It was
interesting to take the maps of a week and
trace the changes day after day.
The general informed us that he was
obliged to make his predictions precise and
definite. And yet a little thought v. ill
show that such precision must be beyond
any human certainty. Let tis look at a
concrete case and see:
Here, for example, is a storm center in
northern Texas. It is movincr at a defi-
ite speed east by north. Just which wav
will it go? Will itkeep straight on. or will
it turn farther north or farther south?
Will the velocity of its movement increase
or diminish or remain unchanged? Bv
studying the atmospheric conditions in
those regions toward which it is movine a
shrewd calcnlat ion can be made. But sun-
pose those conditions change? The experts
in the office may hold different opinions,
but some one must decide and the predic
tion must be made.
Brother Talmage the other day accounted
for the failure of the government prophe
sies by saying that pious prayers sometimes
interfered, teaid he, "A storm starts; but
after it has gone a little way it striken a
prayer and glances off." This is an ele
ment of uncertainty not usually taken into
account. But if people are going to inter
fere with the matter in this way, of course
they have no right to complain of any fail
ures on the part of. the bureau.
But, leaving this one side, a little careful
thinking will show how exceedingly diffi
cult it is to forecast a matter so uncertain.
It is a wonder tome that no larger number
of failures occur.
Tho worth of this work (which, on the
whole, is the best in the world of its kind
is incalculable. To our agriculture, to our
shipping and to many other interests it is
of untold service.
More attention should be given to the
purely scientific side of it. But this is not
Gen. Greely's fault. M. J. Savage in Bos
Crankiness of Opera Singers.
Tenors are more troublesome than other
singers. That is because they have a fair
knowledge of the laws that govern supply
and demand. The good tenor voice is more
scarce than any other, and it is worth more
to its possessor, and he is naturally more
careful of it. An operatic tenor oftentimes
makes himself positively disagreeable to
all about him by his senseless course. In
his opinion the happiness of mankind and
the movements of the planets all depend
upon the state of his vocal organs. To
him life begins and ends with the voice,
and to be happy it must be in good trim.
A tenor especially is easily thrown out
of condition, and because he is so sensitive
is one reason why he is so impractical.
His whole mind and his entire existence
are concentrated upon his vocalization,
and he becomes in time the worst repre
sentative of that division of humanity
known as cranks. When he is not anx
ious about his condition he is worried lest
in the evening's performance he shall not
be able to strike his high "C" with proper
force and clearness, nnd after he has strnck
it be is alarmed lest his organ may have
been overstrained in the effort. All this
narrow channel of thought and action
tends to make him foolish. There are ex
ceptions to this rule as there are to every
rule, but these exceptions are few. Chi

There is nothing new u nder the sun. The
carving of a long glove has been found in
a hole where cave dwellers once lived. Jnst
when these strange people existed has not
been decided, but was thousands and thou
sands of years ago, and the sculptured
glove is of the same shape as the many
button ones worn by ladies of the present.
The gloves of the ante-glacial occupants of
a cave are supposed to have been made of
roughly dressed skin sewed with needles
of bone; bnt they were worn just the
same, and the general pattern remains un
changed. There is plenty of other evidence that
gloves are of very remote origin, although
none that goes back so far. The Anglo
Saxons wore gloves in the Seventh cent
urybnt tho men were the ones then to ob
serve the custom, the ladies covering-their
hands with their sleeves. Earlier than
this Norman officials and high personagss
of that country covered their hands, and
in many places in the; Bible the word
"shoe" is used whim scholars maintain it
means "glove." New York Ledger.

A recent little work on barometric plants,
published in France, gives, among other
interesting facts, the following: If the
stalks of clover and other leguminous
plants stand upright there will be rain; if
the leaf of the wood sorrel urns-up it is a
sign of a storm, as in also the-closing-.of the
convolvulus flower, the expanding of the
lettuce flower and the turning-upside down
of the flower of the pitcherplantbut if
the last named stands erect it will be fine,
as It will be if the flower or the -sorrel
opens. New York Times.
