There never was a time in the his

violent a passion of movement as to

SUN SPOTS FALSE or
New System of Long Range Fore- of
casting Declared Fallacious :
by Government Bureau. ce
EXPERTS SCOUT 'DISCOVERY'
Theory Has Been Investigated by ar
Scientists of Intern'tional Reputa- at
tion and All Agree That It tl
Has No Value. m
Washington.-The chief o0 the
United States weather bureau stated
recently, says the Weekly News Let
ter of the United States department of
agriculture, that in the opinion of the
bureau a new system of long range 0o
weather forecasting, which has been sc
widely discussed, was quite fallacious. P'
The new system is said to be based on cE
the spottedness of the sun and rifts
and shafts of solar radiation. In the w
opinion of the weather bureau it be- 01
longs in the same class with other m
methods of long range weather fore. P
casting based on lunar, planetary, in
magnetic and astrological considera- D
tions. None of these systems, it is to
said, has any scientific value.
During the last few years the weath- D
er bureau has received full specifica
tions concerning all the essential de
tails of this particular system. The al
leged discovery is, therefore, fully -
known to the weather bureau, and has
been carefully studied and examined
by its scientific staff. Moreover, other
scientists of international reputation 1
now connected with the strongest in- n
atitutions of the world engaged in as- P
tronomical research and conducting l
investigations into solar and terres
trial physics, have also passed upon 0
these new theories. These authorities a
are in accord that the deductions and P
conclusions drawn from the solar con- 0
ditions on which the new system is y
based are unwarranted. a

was lost on the Lusitania, which was t

This beautiful sculpture was execut- I

art circles and who exhibited at the I
San Francisco exhibition. The bust I
was made during the summer of 1915
and had been delivered to Mrs. Van

during the night and many beautiful I
and valuable works of art were da 1

TIMBER WOLF VISITS TOWN

Owoeso, Mich.-A timber wolf re

the surface presents 4s characteristic
spotted appearance wfxich undergoes
slight changes from day to day. ane
greater changes with longer intervals
of time, dependilg upon the well
known rotation of the sun upon its axis
and the periodic recurrence of the sun
spot maxima and minima. These and
certain well-known related phenomena
are now put forward as the basis of a
new science which will make possible
forecasts of the weather far in ad
vance. That these features of solar
activity, however, actually should con
trol and determine the daily changes
and sequence of weather conditions in
any definite or direct and consequen
tial manner is regarded by the govern
ment scientists as quite impossible.
Solar phenomena of the kind described
do not have any direct influence upon
the weather at any particular time and
place, and cannot be made the basis of
any forecasts whatsoever.
The alleged discovery is regarded as
only one of a number of similar
schemes which are continually being
put forward. In some cases the advo
cates of these schemes assert that
they can forecast the weather for
weeks or months in advance, and in
others they state that they have found
means of producing rain artificially, of
preventing hail, and in other ways of
interfering with and controlling at
mospheric phenomena. These pre
tensions meet with a certain credence,
DYE BRINGS $12 A POUND
How a Broom Factory Makes Great
Profits on a Hogshead Pur
Chased Years Ago.
Marysville, Kan.-H. H. Todt, a
stockholder in a broom factory located
near Marysville, tells a story of forced
prosperity which fell upon his com
pany as a result of the European war.
The factory uses a green dye to
color the broomstraw in its products
and had been buying the dye at a
i price of one dollar a pound. It uses
on an average of eight or ten pounds a
year. In 1911 it received a letter from
a firm in the East who claimed to be
overstocked on the dye and offered it
at a price of forty cents a pound if it
) would buy a barrel. A barrel looked
like enough to last a lifetime, but the
price was so tempting the factory
placed an order for a barrel. When
the barrel arrived it had grown to a
hogshead and contained 500 pounds.
Considerable correspondence resulted,
but the broom factory finally accepted
the 500 pounds of dye and settled the
Recently at a meeting of the broom
manufacturers in Chicago, the repre
sentative of this factory learned that
green dyes were almost priceless. Up
on his return he advertised its surplus
stock at $12 per pound in single pound
lots or $10 per pound in lots of ten
pounds or more. He has sold a large
quantity of the dye and says he will
