COLD WAVE COMING

Dutch Weather Prophet Says That

The liutch Prophet has made his
annual winter weather forecast under
date of today from Columbia. Of gen

l y annual forecast of temperaturo
and precipitation is die to be made
at th is dale. I have selc'ted the last
wek in September for this special
forocast because the physical year be
gins during the last week in Septem
ber. Thirefore, it is not an accident:
that we find one of the oldest peoples
in civilized human activities observ
ing this period as the beginning of a
new year. I refer to 'ie Jews. who
thus observe the feast of their new
year by direct command of Jehovah. -
It may be that it is an acciden't
that other weather forecasters (the
long distance kind, if you please) have
made the same discovery in reference
to a peculiar relation of this period
September 22-29-to the weather
which is to follow during the winter
and also by close observation around
the winter solstice period one can
v!Ty his foredasts farther into the
succeeding spring and summer.
Precipitation will be abundant dur
ing the winter. It will include at
least four snows of more than ordi
nary character which 'will prevail
south and east of the Blue Ridge
mountains and reach down at least to
the ".Ird parallel.
An area of precipitation is due iml
mediately upon the publication of this
forecast. which is dated September 29.
The latter part of October will see
the beginning of the area of more
abundant precipitation which will ex
tend from the gulf to the lakes and
from the Rocky -Mountains to the Gulf
of St. Lawrence.
I made the forecast that the precip
itation for 1919 would be apProx
imately 70 inches In the South Atlantic
states. It had reached 42 inches or
more in Newberry county on Septem
ber 1 and in the Edisto valley at least
ten inches additional. More is to come
in November and December.
Frost is due around October 16,
(central date). It is not possible to
say absolutely that it will be killing

::uliar rielations which the earth now
bears to the sun, and to which these

lack of cohesiveness exists between

the radiation of the sun's rays. The
Atra violet ray is important element
>f the earth's atmosphere which was
iiscovered only about 15 years ago.
Together with the Influence of the
moon, the ultra violet ray has pretty
much all to do whether or not a kill

as October 16. However, freezing
tenperature may be expected during
fair week, October 25-31.

long distance frost forecasts. For in

1906, midway between parallel 34 and

killing frosts on same latitude occur
red during the ten years, 1900 to 1910.

THE FARMER AND THE PLUMB
PLAN FOR RAILROAD CONTROL
(From Kansas City Weekly Star.)
The American farmer is peculiarly
I concerned in the problem of cheap
railroad trans)ortation. He neces
sarily lives at a distance from the
large manufacturing centers. Every
thing he sells and almost everything
he buys is hauled over the railroads.
I'ow will the Plumb plan of railroad
management affect the farmer?
The farmer is asked to help buy the
railroads from the present owners and
then turn then) over to the railorad
employees to manage. If there is any
profit the farmeri will not share in It.
But it thero should he a loss, he must
help mako it .good. In any event his
taxes will be inerensed to pay interest
on the railroad purchase bonds.
Half of the profits, to be sure, are
to go to the government. But these
are to be used in extension and bet
terments which are expected to in
crease the roads' earning power. In
reality, the direct proflts all go to the
employees. Where the public, includ
ing the farmer, comes In, according
to the plan's advocates, is in the lower
freight and passenger rates that are
The question is whether these bright
promises will be fulfilled. It will be
recalled that at the beginning of the
government railroad administration
promises were lavish. Fulfillment has
been at a discount.
Under the proi)osed plan ten of the
fifteen directors who atw' to be in i'Mustry whieli atvi& fall bacid
