There is so much static in the air, writes Mary Dee Davis, in Scribner, that one can - j not walk across a room and touch i another body without generating a long, snappy electric spark. The Davis airet’.ale soon learned this and when he crosses the rug or the living room, he always turns his head aside and dow-n as he snuggles to be petted, knowing that otherwise his black wet noHe will receive a bee like sting. In winter no one dares to clean a garment In gasoline. Two women of Mrs. Davis’ acquaint ance were burned to death in so doing. .fust the friction of lifting the material from the gasoline, pro duces sparks in the electrified air, and an explosion. Hy February the more nervously organized persons suffer from this surcharge of elec tricity in the atmosphere and become irritable. Hy the end of March they arc avoiding or hating one another, •hit when spring comes the grouch passes quickly and neighbors who have not spoken for weeks greet one another on the street . . . Per haps mme of our moods might be accounted for in some such way. i mmmumiimiimiimimiimmiiMiiciii Ends Contract t Mrs. Veronica M.
