The Tremendous Bodr of Water That
Annually Kails Upon tUe Kartll.
The total amount of evaporation and of
constant rainfall is not exactly known,
but the approximate amount i3 pretty well
made out. The rate of evaporation has
been measured in very many places scat
tered over the earth, especially in Europe
and the United States. There are some
places in the United States where evapora
tion is not more than twenty Inches niinn
ally, but there are other regions, as in the
lower vallev of the Colorado river, where
it is more than eit;ht f.et. These facts well
illustrate the variability of cvr.por;it:on
Hut more attention has been fciven to the
measurement of rainfall than to th(? i:h';-s
ttrement of evaporation. Like the hit t-r.
it is variable, rantrincc from le? t 1 . ; 1 j
Inch tu more than 50 f.-et !;: .!::!;;.-. ''
the Mohave desert the rainfall is i t
B inches, and in various ir..-ti;;!'s of t
United States this increases to ! v. 20. :;f',
Inches, until in thu nortfiwe.terri piirt
the state of Washington there is a rain:'
of !" inches in a single year. On the pen
insula of India the rainfall varies from T!
to ki inches annually, and at Cossyui
north of Calcutta, there is said to be an
annual rainfall of 610 inches. Thus rain
fall, like evaporation, varies from land to
land between ureat extremes.
In general, there is a decrease of rainfall
from the equator to the poles.
The following table is a fair approxima
tion of the amount of rainfall m zones of
latitude receding from the equator:
The avernge rainfull for the entire
face of the earth is about four feet.
entire annual rainfall upon the earth is
estimated at about 152,000 cubic miles,
Tit is is sufficient to fill Iake Erie nearly
if)0 times or Lake Superior lift- times.
These liguresive a fair idea of theamount
of water which is annually carried to the
clouds and discharged upon the earth, and
of the energy exerted iu the work by the
heat of the sun.
It has been seen that the rainfall is very
unequally distributed over the surface of
the earth; that some lands reap a great
harvest from the clouds, others a meagre
supplv. "lut such inequality does not
produce floods. If the ruiufall were dis
tribute'.! equally through the days or even
through the months of the year, there
would be no disastrous floods. Regular
ruinfj:!l produces regular channels compe
tent to carry away ail the water. There
are floods in arid lands and in humid lands
alike. The flood which made a lake in a
desert was in a region of minimum rain
It is the concentration of rain in brief in
tervals of time that brings disastrous
floods. In France XI inches of rain ha'o
been observed to fall iu 34 hours; in Genoa,
SO inches iu '-4 hours; in Gibraltar, 33
inches iu Sit hours; near Ilombay, 24 inches
iu one night; on the IChasi in India. 150
inches have fallen in o successive days.
There are on record in tiie United States
several instances of a full of 5 or ti inches
in S or 3 hours. A great rainfall may ex
tend over a great area of country, but
ofteuiT extreine rainfalls are limited to
small districts, sometimes to only a very
few square miles. Thus there are great
re;;ion;.l lloods and very loual floods.

Ill the dark house in which were kept
the sacred treasures and the consecrated
tapers of Totan, were numerous clay and
stone vases studded with emeralds and
precious stones, but, though seeu more
than once by Nunez le la Vegii, they have
now finally disappeared. .Many believe
that they are still in existence if only
they could lie found. Some say that the
Peruvians worshiped a huge emerald as
big as au ostrich's egg aud ottered to it as
tribute of praise and adoration other em
eralds ot smaller size as children given to
their parents or vassals delivered up to
Coriez got from the Golden castle live
emeralds of priceless value. The first was
cut iu the form of a rose, with its leaves;
the second was a kind of toy or "charm," a
hunting horn; the third was a fish with
golden yes; the fourth was a bell, of
which ti:e clapper was a large pear shaped
tM'url; tho lifth was a cup set on a golden
foot, rimmed with gold and bearing four
golden chains fastened to a pearl, by which
it might be worn as u jewel ou the breast
This piers alone was valued nt 4U,(HKI

icle does not say. Other emeralds fell into
the hands of theso ruthless robbers and

Ten Tlnuinul Years Old.
In m.d:in'4 railroad tunnels, cuts, etc.,
and iu sinking we: Is and pits in Nevada,
Utah an-i Arizona, salt strata are often
struck at. varying depths, sometimes as
much as a hundred yards bei-eath the sur
face. Hundreds of fish, jerfectly pre
served, are found in blocks of -this pure
rock salt. These salt fields are supposed
to occupy what was once the bottom of a
lake thirty miles long, fifteen miles wide
and many hundred feet deep. The fish
found resemble the pike and pickerel spe
cies, and are wholly unlike the fish found
in the lakes and rivers of that region at
the present time. The specimens found
are not petrified, but are as perfectly pre
served iu the llesh as though but recently
frozen in a block of ice.
When taken out and exposed to the heat
of the sun they become as hard as blocks
of wood. Occasionally workmen at the
halt works located in "the basin" have at
tempted to eat these antediluvian relics.
Men of learning who have investigated the
matter say that these salt preserved fish
are at least 10,000 years old. St. Louis Re

A story was told tho other day of a little
girl who discovered a cobweb and then,
seeing a spider emerge from it, culled out:
"See the cob run! How fast the cob runs!"
As a matter of fact she builded better
than she knew, for cob, or cop, is, accord
ing to the dictionaries, the name some
times given to a spider; whence the word
cobweb, which is, strictly speaking, cop
web. Cop in this sense is probably an ab
breviation of the Anglo-Saxon attercoppe,
a spider. New York Tribune.
