Scientific Discussions
by Garrett P. Serviss
The apparent fulfilment this year of
the old weather saw. or proverb, about
St Swithin and his forty days' rain
may serve to strenghten faith in that
curious superstition, for which reason
it is worth while to examine a little
closely the grounds on which the legen
dary belief has grown up.
It could not have lived for 'more than
a thousand years, and could not have
appeared as it has done in various
cognate forms, among separate peoples, i
in different parts of Europe and have
been transferred in full vigor to this
side of the Atlantic unless there were
real facts in nature to suggest and ap
parently to support it.
The event that gave birth to the
tradition in its English dress was no
doubt historic —a striking example of
•.he way in which the imagination work
ing upon some natural occurrence of an
unusual character builds up a legend
that towers above and outlasts contem
porary history. Here'is the'story, and I
it is easy to perceive in it the senti
mental features which give it lasting
In the year 862 Bishop Swithin of
Winchester died, and in accordance
with Ills special behest, was buried not
in the crypt of his cathedral church,
but cut in the open churchyard, the rea
son given by him being that he wished
j "the sweet rain from Heaven" to fall
| uninterrupted on his grave. But after
ihe had been canonized the monks
thought it an unworthy tiling tlia% a
saint should lie thus unsheltered
and they decided that on his canonical
day, July 15, his body should be re
moved into the cathedral.
However, on that very day heavy
rain set in and prevented the removal
and the rain persistently continued for
forty days, at the end of which the
monks concluded that St. Swithin must
be giving them this extraordinary sign
of his opposition by causing the heavens
to weep over their attempt to thwart
his last wishes. Accordingly, they de
cided to leave the body undisturbed,
whereupon the ruin ceased.
Nevertheless, some centuries later,
the body of St. Swithin was enclosed
in a gold shrine studded with jewels
and placed in a chapel of the new
cathedral that arose on the site of the
earlier church. This had no effect on
the legend, although It cleared the way
for the sarcastic suggestion that St.
Swithin wus determined that,' since his
wish had finally been violated, the world
should never forget his protest when his
day came around. But it would ap
pear that the good saint is not always
in bad humor on this subject, for there
is a second clause to the proverb which
: says that if the sun shines on St.
Swithin's day, fair weather will con
tinue for forty days thereafter.
| All weather saws are loosejointed;
1 they won't work unless they have plenty
of elbow-room. This is illustrated by
the variants of the St. Swithin legend.
' All cover a vaticination period of about
: forty days, but the various periods do
not all begin on the same date. Never
• theless—and this is a point of great
'< importance—they are not so far apart
' that they do not overlap one another.
and, taken together, they cover that
• season of the year when extraordinary
1 rains or droughts are most immediately
noticeable by their effects on human af
fairs viz.. in June and July. In Scot
, land St. Martin of Bouillons takes the
place of St. Swithin. and his day is July
; 4. In France the forty-day legend ap
plies to St. Gervals, and the period be
, gins June 19.

W. W. secretary. Hubbard and the
fugitive grappled after a chase, in
which Smith fired repeatedly at his
pursuers. As they clinched, Hubbard
received four wounds in the body.
Body Riddled
Another pursuer overpowered
Smith and he was taken to jail,

er citizens learned that four of the
former soldiers hud died. An at
tempt to lynch Smith was made be
fore he was lodged in jail.
"You fellows can't hang me," he
said, "t was sent to do my duty and
1 did it."
Smith was tossed from a bridge
over the Chelafs river after a rope
was tied about his neck and a vol
lev of bullets sent into his body.
The lynching party worked silently
and In darkness while taking him
from the Jail. At 7.30 o'clock all

Little was known of Smith. He
came here a short time ago.
Two undertakers refused to han

of it would be made was unknown.
Burned Furniture JToviously
Clashes between the I. W. W. and
Centralia citizens have occurred at
intervals during the last two years.
The first trouble occurred when a
radical spoke against a Red Cross
bazar. At that time a crowd re
moved all furniture from I. W. W.
hall and burned it in the street.
Governor Hart to-day was en

they were powerless in the face of
the great odds against them, both in

sisted them in putroling and in
guarding the jail..
Served Overseas

sixteen months oversens.
Hubbard served with the Twen
tieth Engineers in France. He was
married only two weeks ago.
Casagrandu served with the Nine
ty-first Division in France.
One eye witness account of the
attack on the marchers was that it
came just as the head of the line
slowed down to "mark time" in
front of the I. W. W. headquarters
to permit the rest of the column to
make up distance. From the root
and windows of the I. W. W. head
quarters and buildings across the
street and from pedestrians volleys
of bullets sprayed the halted ranks.
Men came running from different
exits of the I. W. W. hall.
Secretary Smith fled from a rear
entrance, firing an automatic. His
weapon "jammed" but he restored
it to working condition and con

and disarmed.
Problems of Facers
and Consumers Taken Up
Grand Rapids, Mich., Nov. 12.
A number of important questions
concerning not only farmers but all
consumers of their products were
before the National Grange for con
sideration when the fifty-third an
nual convention opened here to-day.
Among the subjects to be brought
before the convention which con
tinues ten days, are the labor situ
ation, speculation in foodstuffs, rail
road control, distribution, extension
of the rural free delivery and the Im
migration laws.
A better dealing is to be demanded
for the farmer, some of the officers
asserted. A plan for fixing the price
of farm products closely following
the "cost plus" system employed by
the Government in war contracts
has been outlined for presentation
to the convention.

homicide was committed because of a
selfish mother love. "The Common
wealth seeks no victims. She is on
trial for her own act.
"Some homicides are committed be
cause, of anger, jealousy, hatred or
for revenge. The Commonwealth does
not contend that in this case. In this
case It was a love of self—selfishness
—that prompted her.' Continuing
Mr. Stroup argued against the theory
that she was either insane at tha
time of the poisoning or that it was

"To want to commit suicide is not
evidence of insanity, and epilepsy is
not insanity. It may lead to insanity.
Some of the greatest characters <n

let they were not insane.
"She confessed she wanted to com

11l Since Thirteenth Year
Witnesses called by the defense yes
terday afternoon were placed on the
stand principally for the purpose of
showing the epileptic condition of
the Stewart girl.
Mrs. May A. Smith, 1222 North Front
street, an aunt, was called first at the
afternoon court session. Since the
girl-mother was two years of age she
had been living with her,aunt. Ac
cording to Mrs. Smith the girl first
suffered from epilepsy when she was
13 years old. and one year later had
to be taken from school because of
her condition. In 1911 she was mar
ried and in May. 1919, the child was
born at the Smith home.
Mrs. Smith said her niece suffered
fiom two to four attacks a day, and
usually was in a dazed condition for
at least two hours after each one.
Sometimes the girl was in that con
dition without suffering from any
convulsions, the aunt also told the
Mrs. Fannie Dinger and Mrs. Ber
tha Dinger, two neighbors, made sim
ilar statements telling of fits which
the girl had while at their homes.
Mrs. Clara Spangler was another who
was called and told of the attacks of
Douis W. Smith, an uncle, said that
h saw his niece wandering around
in a circle in the street one day. He
said she did not know where she was
and had to be taken into his barber
shop until she recovered. Mrs. Mary
Gluspey said that she was seated in
River front park one day and saw
the girl fall over the bank suffering
from a. fit.
Three physicians were called in the
afternoon to explain the effect of
epilepsy on the body and mind. They
were Dr. C. R. Phillips. Dr. Thomas
IC Bowman and Dr. William H. West.
Dr. Phillips repeated some of the
testimony he gave in the morning
aboqt finding the Stewart girl in a
dazed condition and unable to answer
j what she had done.
After a short argument between
District Attorney Michael E. Stroup
and W. Justin Carter, counsel for the
i defense, it was deemed by the court
to let Dr. Bowman testify. Mr. Stroup
contended he was not an expert in the
study and treatment of epilepsy, and
I>r. Bowman stated on the witness
stand he handled only about five or
six cases a year.
It was pointed out that the defense
could either be accidental poisoning
on the part of the child-mother dur
ing an epileptic fit, or if the poisoning
was intentional, then the defense
should show whether the defendant
was in such a state of mind when she
I administered it that she fully realized
the nature and consequence of her
. act.
I Dr. Bowman said that an epileptic
attack might last only a few seconds
and yet the person suffering from it
would not know what had happened
in that brief space, of time. He also
said that from the evidence he had
heard the CommonweaM produce, he
did not believe the girl was conscious
of what she was doing at the time of
the poisoning. He also said on cross
examination that the girl could suf
fer from a fit and then in a few sec
onds be rational enough to call to her
mother and tell her to eoine and look
at the baby.
Dr. West made statements similar
to those of Dr. Bowman, and said
that frequent attacks of epilepsy of
ten resulted in insanity, and might
cause suicidal or other mania. In
cross-examination Mr. Stroup attempt
ed to show that the mother must have
been rational when she secured the
acid and immediately after the pois
oning or she could not have called
her mother. The two physicians said
they would not attempt to tell what
state of mind she had in as they
were not present, and" could only
base their conclusions on the state
ments of witnesses who had seen and
I spoken to the defendant at the time.

Increased Advertising
Rates and Reduction
in Size Are Ui sed
By Associated Press.
New York. Nov. 12.—Increased ad
vertising rates and reduction in the
size of newspapers were urged to-day
by Franklin P. Glass, of Birmingham,
Ala., president of the American News
paper Publishers' Association, at a
special meeting here to consider the
newsprint shortage.
"Every paper," he said, "should
agree to cut down its average num
ber of pages, both week day and Sun
day, by a considerable percentage and
then hold downs its advertising vol
ume to a fixed number of pages. This
will probably necessitate an arbitrary
reduction of at least 33 per cent, in
volume of business.
"Radical advances should be made
in advertising rates. The percentage
of increase should be such that they
will hold back the sluice of advrtlsing
that has poured into offices and bids
fair to continue during the next
