RECORDS SHOW N ORADICAL CHANGE IN SEASONS "The seasons are changing; we do not have the cold weather we did when i was a boy.” Remarks similar to this are frequently heard by represen tatives of the Weather Bureau, United States Department of Agriculture, but j 1 reports on the weather dating as far : back as 1870 show that there has been j no radical change in the mean temper- j Satmv from year to year. An official of the Weather Bureau ■ has compiled the following table from records taken by various observers previous to 1872 and from those of the Weather Bureau Station at New Haven. Conn., from 1873 to the present.. : For the 10 years ending Mean temperature j ’F. I 1790 41,0 1800 300 1810 r>^4 1820 _I 47,5 1830 4‘4'3 1840 47,8 1850 402 1800 480 1870 4i44 1880 ' IStK) ** l'.too 41,1 1010 4fl-‘ 1920__ It will be noted, the official points out. that th ewarmest three periods are those ending in 1800. 1810. and 1920. an dthat the coldest decade immedi ately follows the second warmest. Considering the individual months and the individual years, it is found that the coldest January occurred a> late as 1857. The coldest February oc curred eight years after the warmest one. The coldest March was as late as 1870 and again in 1885. The coldest April was in 1874. and many years af ter the warmest one. The lowest tem perature in May was in 1812. 181.», 1870, and 1882. The highest figures in June are in 1779. 1790. 1803. and 1870. In July the lowest was 1816, wit lithe warmest as early as 1780 and equaled in 1876. The coldest August occurred 61 years after the warmest. In September the coolest months aie in the earlier years, but for October, ; November, and December the coldest year came after the warmest year in each case. Thus it will be seen that in nine months of the year the coldest one of record occurred afte rthe warmest one. These figures seem to indicate very dearly, the weather official says, that since the tme of the Revolutionary War. at least .there has been no per manent change in temperature. -—u WANDERER HEARING VOICES IN HIS CELL Chicago.

How ? By disinfecting stables, pens, troughs, mangers, and livestock thoroughly with Fecto; by using Fecto to disinfect the udders of cows, the hands of milkers, milking machines, pails, cans, bottles, vats, separators, strain ers, and all receptacles used in the handling and shipping of milk. Fecto kills the germs of dis ease and of decay, destroys foul odors, sterilizes and purifies milk receptacles, making them sweet and clean. Fecto i ; a clean, colorless, non-poisonous liquid; is ten times more powerful as a germ destroyer th..n carbolic acid. Fecto is the ideal disinfectant and sterilizer for use on the farm, dairy, or creamery, be cause it is non-poisonous when properly dilnted; because it does not leave a disagreeable odor; because it is economical.
