Issues a refrigerating cloud.
Most readers will remember the great
eruption of the Katmai volcano In
Alaska early last year. It was one ot
the grandest displays' of volcanic forces
on record. The top ot tho mountain was
blown off, as a cork Is shot out of a
champagne bottlo; volcanic smoke and
dust were hurled many miles high In the
atmosphere, thousands nt square miles
of the surrounding land and sea were
burled under white ashes, and wherever
the mighty cloud passed overhead Im
penetrable night prevailed.
The dust that" reached an elevation
above the level at which rain' and snow
clouds are formed was borno swiftly
round the earth, and within a few months
It presence was detected all over the
northern hemisphere by Its restraining
effect upon the light and heat rays of
the sun. A fall of temperature resulted
and a cool summer followed.
If this experience were an Isolated or
Unprecedented one, the conclusions that
have been drawn from It would be less
convincing than they now appear to be.
But the same thing has happenedat least
three times wlthtn the memory ot the
In ' 1883 occurred the tremendous ex
plosion of the volcano Krakatoa In the
Cast Indies, In which not only a moun
tain, but an entire Island was demolished.
The' sounds of that explosion were
actually heard, like the booming of dis
tant artillery, 8,000 miles away, and It
sent) sea waves completely across the
Faciflo ocean! It blew mlllronsof tons
of dust into tho upper atmosphere, and
this dust, circling rapidly round the
earth, produced for several years after-
ward the most magnificent sunsets that
have ever been known.
But this was not all. During. 1SS4. 1SS5
and 1858 careful thermometrlc observa
tions showed everywhere a lowering ot
the general temperature amounting to
several degrees below the average. This
Is now ascribed to the screening effect
of the volcanic dust In the air.
In 1903 the slumbering volcano of Mont
Pelee In Martinique was uncorcked, with
the most terrible consequences to the In
habitants ot that beautiful Island, 30.000
of whom perished, almost In an Instant,
from the blast of withering tire that
swept the city of St. Pierre out ot ex
istence. Pelee also blew its vast dust
clouds Into the upper air.
And during the following year they
produced the customary effects by screen
ing off tho solar light and heat and
causing a notable lowering of the tem
perature of the earth.
Now, to return to the eruption of Kat
mai, which, being the most recent oc
currence of this magnitude, lias been the
most carefully studied. Prof. C. Q. Ab
bot of the Smithsonian Institute, reports
that being In Algeria last year, he found
the sky obscured to such a degree by
volcanic haze, which ' he does not doubt
proceeded from Katmai, that the mean
temperature was lowered several degrees,
and he calculates that over the whole
northern temperate zone the available
solar heat wns diminished 10 per cent
from this cause.
Prof. W. J. Humphreys explains the
action of the volcanic dust blankets In
this way: "The fine dust scatters the
short waves of light and heat proceeding
from the sun, but has little, If any, ef
fect upon tho longer thermal waves
radiated4 from the earth, which pass
through the dust, and escapes Into outer
space without obstruction. The conse
quence Is that the earth's radiation of
heat gets out more easily than the tun's
radiation can get In, and thus the equi
librium of temperature at the earth's sur
face Is upset and the earth grows colder.
He even suggests that the mysterious
glacial epochs ot past time, when Ice
covered what are now some of the rich
est lands of the northern hemisphere,
may have been Induced by volcanic dust
blankets more extensive and more Im
penetrable than any. that have been
thrown round the globe within hlstorlo
times.
Are these studies and speculations worth
while? Most surely they are. Perhaps
wo shall never be able to Interfere with
such tremendolis exhibitions ,of nature's
' powers, -but. even bo, it Is ouMntellectual
duty to understand them. Our physical
existence Is the least of the gifts be
stowed upon us.

Hercules were mere child's ploy.
How, for Instance, Is a man going to
make a woman behave who has a tabasco
temper and a tongue that blisters as it

You can't reason with a shrew. The
only argument that a termagant ever
listens to Is a knockdown and dragout
one, and unhappily the conventions of
good society do not permit a gentleman
to beat his wife, no matter how much he
would like to, nor how she needs It.
There arc thousands and thousands ot
men who are noble, and good, and physl
tally brave, but who spend the entire
years of their married life trembllnr be

I have known men, genial, kind, and
who loved the society of their fellows,
yet who. If kept a moment beyond thn

I know a man, fond of good living,
who, at his dyspeptic wife's stern ad
monition, "Dear," drops his fork upon
his plate as If the tidbit he had been
carrying to his mouth had suddenly be

hospitable, who would no more dare to
take a friend home with them to dinner
than they would to commit any other
crime that was punishable with being
flayed alive.
How is a man going to make his wife
behave when she is ruining him with
her extravagance? Of course, he can
legally avoid paying her bills, by giving
publlo r.otlce that he will not be re
sponsible tor her debts, but such a
course brands ber with disgrace and
touches his honor. Very few men have
the hardihood to adopt this plan, but
every year our graveyards and our
asylums are being filled with men who
have worked themselves Into the grave,
or paresis, trying to stem the tide of
their wives' wasteful, wilful extrava
gance. Before her husband's entreaties to be
economical, such a woman sulks, to bis
lemonitrance at her extravagance she
retorts that he Is stingy, while If he at
tempts to restrain her she avenges her.

Tho man, however, who entrusts an

In the United Etatea there are a few
merchants who are discoverers ot genius,
but moat are served by tho ni'dlocre, not
to mention the time-server, tho flunky,
the hypoortte and the lickspittle.
One great merchant In the United
States lives In history, not only because
ho was a great mercant, but because he
discovered to tho world fully half a doten

young men, gave them an opportunity,
and under his beneflclent guiding influ

When you expect a messenger to de

him with too many Instructions, nor scare
him Into Innocuoua desuetudo by retailing
the dangers that he will encounter, de

It Is a great man who knows whsn to

To let one line of figures at the bottom ot

Of course, If you repose ccntldence In

turns on selection. Big men. nowadays,
are big because they get others to do

Or how Is the man to make the woman
behave who Is' merely silly and childish?
But whose folly Is tho millstone around
the neck of her husband that drags him
down Into the sea of failure?
Everybody will admit ttyit tho man
who is married to a woman who needs
managing ought to manage her, but It
Is one ot the most pathetlo truths ot life
that In a family conflict It Is always the
noblest and best that Is crushed under

rules.
But why should there be nny one head,
either mala or female, to a house? Mar

to their credit, be It said, seldom con-
clously assume this role of boss of the
family, and when they do they have the
grace to be ashamed of It and not to brag
about It, whereas, If a man can tyrannize
over some poor little woman, he spends
his time crowing over the achievement
Personally, I believe that the head of
the house theory has brought about more
domestic misery than any other one
thing.
The man who dares not call his soul

prison. The woman who has to give an
account of every act and thought, and
ask permission, like a child, for every.

Her Best Investment
Ily BEATRICE FAIRFAX
It the young girls who are start
ing out with hearts that alternate be
tween hope and fear were to ask all the
sweet-faced old women they know this
question, "What Is the best Investment
for a girl to make?" can you Imagine
their answer?
I am very sure It would not be "In the
love of man," for man's love Is attended
iby much toll and regret and pain,
i Neither would it be "In saving your
'money," for the sweet-faced old women
have found out that there Is much more
worth while.
It Is your mother, little girl, who loves
you when no one will, and whose lovo
lasts as long as she lives. Her love Is
not dependent on your wit, your beauty,
your accomplishments or your worth
In financial returns. She loves you be
cause It Is you; she would love you if
you were all that Is repellant and hideous
In face and character.
It Is the luve of a sister that smoothes
over the rough places that even a mother
can't comprehend. Her youth makes her
a more sympathetic listener to the trials
of youth, and It Is the only love left In
the wreck of the home when mother has
left It forever.
There Is an understanding In a sister's
love a sympahty, a guidance and
strength. If two sisters love each other,
and each gives to the other the fullest
confidence, so long as that confidence
Is given without reserve neither sister
will go astray. A young girl can make
no better Investment than In the love
ot an older sister, for the older sister,
having to recently trod the same path,
knows all the pitfalls on the way, An
older sister can make no better Invest
ment than In the love of the girl who Is
younger, for the initiation that fte is
the guide make her cautious ot her own
footteps.
The best Investment, girls, Is not In
the love of the man who woos you to
day and forgets you tomorrow. It Is an
Investment you will make. The voice ot
nature commands It, but In making this
Investment, don't, slight the love that
will last longer, and that Is the love of
mother and sister.

By his burning seal and wonderful elo
