After testing the question again and aain,' modern meteoroiogiats have come to the conclusion tbat the moon has no sort' of influence over the weather, agreeing . wUii the Iroa Duke, that it is nonseoee to place any faith in her as a weather predic tor. Time was when she was thought absolute i mistress of the seasons. Pliny lias the following lunar weath er wisdom ' Fine weather,' wind, or rain may' be looked for according as the moon rises with a pure white, red, or swarthy light.

Darwin declares H as a sure sign-' of coming rain when the moon's head is hidden in haloes. A correspondent of Notes and Queries says a large cir cle round the moon, wit it a north or northeast -wind, ' predicates' tormy weather; . if the wirrd.com eg ' from any other; quarter there will: "still be-raia, bntieasof it.

And v 'r":' -: WhenVer, in autumn or in spring,; : A mist the moon doth with it bring At noon the sun will bright appear, f The eveniog be serene and clear. .Thetjufaing np of the horns of the" moon is another sign of fair weather.
