How to Srf the Wind,
Much advice has been pi veil as
to how to 'raise the wind." The
following information about seo
ine (he wind Is not uninterestini;:
Take a polished metallic surface
with a straight edge a large
handsaw will answer the pur
pose. C'hooso a windy day,
whether hot or cold, clear or
cloudy, only let it not rain or the
air bo murky ; in other words,
let the air bo dry and clear, but
this is not essential. Hold your
metallic surface, at right angles
to the direction of tho wiud
namely, If the wiud is north, hold
your surface east and west, bnt
instead of holding the surface
vertically, incline it about forty-
five degrees to tho horizon, so
that the wind striking, glances
aud flows over the edge, (keeping
it straight) as water over a dam.
Nov? sight carefully over the
e.jige at some minute and sharp
ly defined object, and yon will
see the air flowing over as water
flows over a dam. Make vour
: observations carefully, aud yon
will hardly fail to see the air, no
matter how cold ; tho result is
even better when tho suu is ob
scured. Paint, ratty and Piety.
