Prlmitlre Portenta That Are aa True
N w aa In Virajll'a Time.
At the lieginning of the Christian era,
and befora that time, the signs of the
heavens a: id the behavior of animals and
birds were noted with reference to chances
of weather. If we read Virgil we shall
find numerous references to these portents,
and the translation usually quoted will
furnish us with information which must
be as true nowadays as it was in Vircil's
time, for vild animals do not change their
habits, bpeakineof wet weather in the
Georgics, i,he poet wrote:
The wary crane foresees ft flint, and sails
Above the orm, and leaves the hollow vales;
The cow locks np, and from afar can find
The change of heaven, and sniffs it in the
The swallo skims the river's watery face.
The frogs r jnew the croaks of their loquacious
The careful ant her secret cell forsakes
Ana draws bereRRs along the narrow tracks:
Huge flockh of rising rooks forsake their food.
And, cryinj;, seek the shelter of the wood.
The owls, that mark the setting sun, declare
A starlight evening and a morning fair.
Wemiglt quote further selections re
specting t le sitnis in the heaven and earth
mentionec, but the foregoing verses will
be sufficient to illustrate our position, and
to show us that weather forecast jnir is at
any rate, f.s old as the Christian era. The
moon is generally supposed to influence
the weather a "Saturday's moon" being
particularly objectionable, or when she ap
pears anew at some hours after midnight
When firs-, the moon appears, if then she
Her silver crescent, tipped with sable HnnrU
Conclude me bodes a tempest on the main.
And brews for fields impetuous floods of rain.
For gen. -rations, as today, a red skv f
tells fine veather; a yellow sky changing
into green means rain, or rain and wind:
on the other band, when the red rays ap-
c iimy hulk i.nLe nne weatner, as
the atmosphere is becoming less and less
A "low'" dawn is known as a crood sitrn:
so when the first raj s appear at or near
the horizon we may anticipate a fine day,
as we may when the morning is gray.
ravening red mid -morning gray
are almost unfailing tokens of fine weather.

The Right of SurTrape.
The right to vote comes from the state.
aud is a state gift. Naturalization is a
federal ri;I't, and is a gilt of the Union,
not of at y one stute. In nearly one-half
the Unior, aliens (who have declared inten
tions) vote and have the right to vote
equally villi naturalized or native born
citizens. In the other half only actual citl
zens may vote. 1 he federal naturalization
laws appl f to the whole Luion alike, and
provide that no alien may be naturalized
until after five years' residence. Even
after five vears' residence aud due natural
ization he is not entitled to vote unless tbe
laws of the state confer the privilege upon
him, and he may vote in one state (Minne
sota) foui months after landing if he has
immediatelv declared his intention under
United States law to become a citizen.
The Oldest Matheniatleal Treatise.
The oldest mathematical book in the

British tiuseum, professed to have been
written by Acmes, a scribe of King Ra-a-ns,
about the period between 2,000 and 1,700
B. C. Tl is "Papyrus Rhind" was trans
lated by Eisenlohr, of Leipsic, a few years
ago, and it was found to contain a rule for
making a square equal in area to a given
circle. It. was not put forth as an original
discovery, but as the transcript of a trea
tise 500 years older still, which sends us back
to, approximately, 2,500 B. C, when Egyp

The Inventor of Mackintoshes.
Up to the year 1820 India rubber was
employee principally for small purposes,
such as erasing pencil marks. One of the
first persona to suggest its use in more im

of Xe win gton, England, who took out a
patent in 1820. Three years later Mack
intosh, of Glasgow, patented the fabric
from which waterproof garments are made,
now called by bis name.
