THE JUDGE AND THE VIRAGO
An Ancient Joke of Which There Are *
Many Modern Versions. *
The following tale was translated
from a very old Chinese book for Col- w(
Iter's Weekly: I
A certain magistrate upon opening f
his court observed oue of bis llctors
whose face was covered with wounds j}
and SSked him what was the matter.
Replied tbe lietor. "Yesterday evening Jjj
I was reclining and enjoying the fresh .
air under my grape arbor, which was
suddenly upset by v gust of wind and
fell ou me and caused these injuries."
But the Judge was skeptical and
said: "That is too tblu. It is easy to
ace that tbe marks on your face are wl
from Scratches from nails. It must be, ™
that you have had a row with your
wife aud gjt a clawing from her. Is
this not so?" _
The lictor crimsoned all over and re .
piled. "Your honor bus truly guessed f
Then said the Judge: "Why is your #
wife so fierce lis this? Walt till I sum- S
mon her and give her a beating and •
you your revenge." •
While he was yet speaking tbe Judge's 9
own wife suddenly came out from tbe X
bouse and fiercely said. "Who Is this *
you are going to lieat?" •
Tbe magistrate hastily announced to •
the llctors and tTng cb'nl tPsi "This Z

IF SNOW NEVER FELL
The Effect Upon the World's Cropt
Would Be Disastrous.
If all tbe condensed moisture of tbe
atmosphere were to fall as rain sod ,
none of it waa anow hundreds of tbou- |
sands of square miles of tbe earth
surface now yielding bountiful crept
would be little better than a desert
Tbe tremendous economic gain for tbe
world at large which results from tbe
difference between snow and rain U I
seldom realised by the Inhabitants or
fertile and well watered lowlands.
It la in the extensive regions where
Irrigation Is a, prime necessity In sg- j
rlculture tbst tbe special uses of snow
come chiefly Into view. All throngs
the winter tbe snow Is falling upon the
mountains and packing; Itself firmly erf
the ravines. Thus in nature's great j
Icehouse a supply of moisture is stored '
up' for the following summer.
All through the warm months tbe I
hardened snow banks are melting j
gradually. In trickling streams they ,
steadily feed tbe riven which as they |'
flow through the valleys are utilised ■
for Irrigation. If this moisture fell as ,
rain it would almost Immediately wash
down through the rivers, which would
hardly be fed at all In tbe summer
when the crops most needed water.
These facta are so well known as to
be commonplace In tbe Salt Lake val
ley and In tbe subarhl regions of tbe
west generally. They are not so well
understood In New Jersey or Ohio,
where snow is sometimes a pictur
esque, sometimes a disagreeable, fea
ture of winter.
In all parts of the country the notion
prevails that the snow la of great value
as a fertilizer. Scientists, however, are
Inclined to attach less imports noe to
Its service In soil nutrition—for soma
regions that have no snow are exceed
ingly fertile—than to lta worth as a
blanket during tbe months of blgb
winds. It prevents tbe blowing off of
tbe finely pulverized richness of tbe
top soli. Tbts, although little per
ceived, would often be « great loss-
