Frederick W. Stevens, former general counsel of the Cincinnati.

The thermometer has not been above xero since. The snow is deeper and the ice thicker than ever before so early in the season. The Jarring the atmosphere gets from the orchestra of big guns is the explana tion. "The explosions break the envelope between the surface of the earth and the stratas of intensely cold air above the protecting envelope. So long as the Jarring continues, the inrush of icy tered. air will continue to make a refrigera- I From time to time it has been ported that rain-making enterprises operate in various parts of Europe and seek to break droughts that damage agriculture. If the explosions be con tinued long enough the drought wou'd of course, be broken, but there also would be a great waste of ammunition. The rain was coming, anyway. Historians of battles have written much of rain. Soon after the English fleet engaged the Spanish armada 15g8 a severe storm broke and wreck ed or dispersed the Spanish ships which the English guns had not bat- tor out of the eastern theater of war.' .... .-. .. ...i. .1.. --.-..,.

Ills achievement in this par ticular Is not the product of economy alone, but directly the fruit of hli rare scientific attainments. "Dave" Taylor, as his intimates euil him, was born 'in lxulsa county, Va., March 4. 1W4. In 181 he entered th United States Naval Academy a a cadet engin er. In those days twenty-five cad-t engineers were appointed yearly to the academy, and their sdmisslon was deter mined by competitive examinations of candidates from the country at large. For a country bred lad, educated mostly under hi father's roof, th- manner ;n which young Taylor acquitted hlmsHf at the entrance examinations was spectac ular. Out of 190 candidates he passed number two. and soon after entering An napolis he showed that he would not be content with sect.nd place. 1K82 th cad-t engineers and the cadet midshipmen at the Naval Academy were merged, and thereafter ornVUIly known ss naval radets. Three yes s lat r, when the ever memorable June week arrived. Taylor was the first to ad vance from the ranks of the graduating class to re- eive his diploma. He not aded his class, but he had won work th1 hlgh't percentage f marks of any naval academy graduate up f that date. The record he made has never since been equalled at the Insti tution. The irritating part about Taylor's scholastic successes. s his classmates said, was that he never seemed to study and alway had an abundance of time tor recreation. The truth of It was. his mind had the rare quality of quick ab sorption combined with intelligent diges tion. In his first class year Cadet Tay lor was thr high st cadet officer at An napolis. Apparently all be had to do was to run over a lesson once to know it and mathematical problems were just pie to him One Instance illustrate the char acter of mind of the new chief con structor. One of the subjects of the academy curriculum was international law, and th examiners one year chose s rather difficult phase of this branch of the cadeta studies. Indeed, the particu lar point was one of rather elaborate treatment in the textbook, and the best that the hulk of the students could do was to summarize the question more or le-s imperfcctlv When the xaminers reached Cadet Taylor's paper, they found It not only full, but substantially a verbatim repeti tion of a passage from the textbook Now, expertenc had commonly proved this degree f thoroughness to he a mat ter for suspicion. It looked too much like a direct ropy, and young Taylor v;y thought to have been guilty of crib 1'inc He merely smiled when he was called before the board of officers and Indisputably established his Innocence and his unusual gift by going over to a desk and rewriting offhand the Interna- , tlonal problem.
