Last year of 11SS6 buildings being struck by light j n!n 8 a great number were barns. Of these buildings 958 had wooden ! roofs, 34 were metal, 39 were slate and I S16 were not described. Of this whole number only 40 were | rodded, 855 were not, and 951 were i not reported. In the ten years, 1898 to 190», Ger man Investigators found that of all buildings struck, 9 per cent of those having hard roofs and 88 per oent of those having soft roofs were not set on fire. as Older writers say that risks of build ings being »truck by lightning is five times greater In the country than In the city. Electricity Is present In the earth and In the atmosphere at all times. The amount In the atmos phere varies from time to time, but I becomes large during so-called mag I netlc storms. These storms are usual ly accompanied by auroral displays and are often coincident with spots. It has been found that there Is an excess of negative electricity In the surface of the earth and an excess of positive electricity In the atmosphere. As like electricity repels and unlike electricity attracts, It follows that there Is a constant Interchange or I movement of the positive electricity ' In the air toward the earth and of the negative electrlçlty In the earth to ward and Into the atmosphere. At times this Is so marked that there Is a visible discharge from ob jects extending Into atmosphere, like on vessels, or from the bodies sun ' of persona standing on mountain tops.

The commission lias as not chocked up the tariffs with present rates, but such examination ns lmd been possible in dicates that the increases to the Pa cific terminals are considerably greater than the reduction to the inter-Rocky mountain territory. Mr. Countiss says that some carload rates to terminal points are advanced on commodities which are not subject to water competition to any great tent. This adjustment, he points out, creates an advance to the terminals hut reduces the rates to interior des tinations. Some commodity rates in force at present, are absolutely olminated, thus automatically transferring the articles shipped to tbo western classification un der which the rates would bo consider ably higher than at present. Mr. Countiss maintains that this ad justment would relieve the discrimina tion against interior destinations, which now exists. A thorough examination of the tariffs will be made by the commission, and should they be deemed unreason able, they will be suspended.
