These drops, first small of size, attract others of their kind and become drops of such magnitude that they fall to the earth because of their weight. There isa lim it to the quantity ot water which the air is capable of absorbing and re tain as invisible vapor. Warm air is able to hold more than cold air. Hence; when the air which is saturat ed with moisture becomes cold for any reason whatever, it can no longer retain its moisture. A portion must, under such condition, accumulate into drops. These fall to the earth in the shape of rain. Toledo Grain Market. ToiiBDO, Deo. 3. Our receipts of wheat to-day equal 7,900 bushels.

This makes a postal card equivalent to letter postage. Many people enclose pos tal cards to correspondents in e nvel opes too small, believing a little clipping will not make any differ ence. Others round off the corners for ornamental purposes or conveni ence in handling. Don't do it again. INSURANCE. Commissioner Hahn's ruling affect ing the secret societies having insur ance features practically goes into effect today, says the Cincinnati Com- merical Gazette. The action of the societies, in view of the fact that they will hereafter be required to take out license and hie an annual report, the same as tha old line companies, will be watcher? with considerable in terest. Some time ago there appear ed a news item from Columbus indi cating that the commissioner had singled out the National Fraternal Union ana a few otner organizations of that ilk in giving instances of such as would come unaer tne ruling. A call was made on supreme Ac countant S. L. Miner, of the order named, Saturday. Mr. Miner said his organization had already complied, that a license had been taken out in .Tnl v last and the reDort filed. A. T. Koever, . M. W. of A. O. U. W.,isof the opinion that the superintendent may make a ruling, out may nna tne enforcement or it entirely dinerent thing. He savs there will no doubt be a number of organizations wnion will resist. A few figures are given that will show some intresting facts in this connection. The statistics are taken from the last report of the .National Federal congress, a union of all the leading benevolent orders having an insurance feature, at the close of 1893. There were, according to this re nort. 1.814.966 members of these or conizations, with a total amount of protection in force of $3,611,000,000.

Order of Foresters 64,484 The same statistics show that the old life line conpanies paid out in one vear $2,748,367 for taxes aud license fees, which, of course, the benefit orders escaped. Dunne the same period it was shown that twenty-five old line com panies had In force $3,213,431,147, against $2,611,162,035, in the fraternal organizations. f "I ill 1 4 BELIEVE IT. FOR RUN Says So."
