The change of program is attributed
to the lateness of the season and the
fear of being froeen in. If the report
is antnentic, it will occasion much
regret here and in Moline, where
plans had been made to give the Nor

A most extraordinary theory haa re
cently been propounded to explain the
reason why rain usually falls after a
severe battle has beea fought.
The ancients used to attribute the
phenomenon to the generosity of soma
deity who waa kind enough to make
the attempt to wash away the traces
of man's degradation as boob as possi
ble; and, later on, when cannon came
to be used as a means of destroying
life, the detonations of these machines
were said to cause the wonderful
downpour of rain.
But more prosaic, up-to-date people
of to-day put it down to perspiration.
Aad this is how they go to prove it
One soldier will, in the course of
twelve hours' fighting.give off six gal
lons of water. H drinks much. Thirst
for gore, glory and water go together
oat anch occasions, and the total
tount ot moisture given off by
maa is said to be sufficient to cover
twelve square feet three-quarters of
aa inch deep. .
AoWi of coarse all this perspiration
evaporates aad goes up into the at
mosphere. The atmosphere becoming
unduly charged with moisture, offers
itself on the slightest provocation to
the f ormatioa of clouds and in nino
eases ont of ten rain falls immediately

On Weakneaa of Dial act WrUUs
The dialect of the tnagasines is
generally the worst possible misspell
ing, with very little approach to the
pronunciation which it is supposed to
indicate. Apparently the, hardest
thing for a writer to leara is that
dialect ia not bad spelling. Half the
Irish dialect, so called, seen' in the
magazines, ia a libel on the Irish pro
nunciation, while, if possible, this
negro dialect Is- even worse. The
trouble is that the writers have, as a
rale,' picked ' up their dialect from
other writers aad know uothing of
the genuine article. If they would go
to nature there would be a marked
Improvement In this respect. '
ALWAYS THE CHEAPEST.
