Wind and the Sun
Wiud doc.s not always go down with !
t'he sun. but may blow from high to :
low after sunset. If wind starts to
fill up a low pressure area before sun- I
set it is liable to keep pouring in uu- j
til it is filled and equilibrium restored, j
If wind stops exactly at instant of sun- I
net one may rest assured that tho area
of barometrical depression is filled. If
wind blows from sea to land bv day it
may stop at sunset and reverse direc
tion. If it does the cause is that at
sunrise the sun's radiant energy beats j
the land more than it does the water.
The land wArnis the air, increases its
rarity and it rises, producing a lower
7>ressure area, and cooler air from over
the ocean rushes in to fill it. After
sunset land cools in less time than the
water, and the direction n{ How is re
versed. Bnt this may not always oc
cur. bo al causes, as fog, saturation :
of air, electrical conditions and others ]
may prevent.—New York Journal. <

Scarborough Recovers
From the Unexpected
Bombardment by the
German Squadron
Big Resort Hotels on Esplanade Tempt
ing Targets for Bain of Shrapnel
and Lyddite Shells—Woman Liter
ally Blown to Pieces
Scarborough, Via ljondon, Dec. 17,
| A. M.—The Queen of English Wa
-1 taring Plaices has recovered to-day frqtn
i t.he unexpected bombardment and the
j feeling is one of bitter anger at the
| town's helplessness when under t'he
j guns of t'he German squadron.
The first warning sound of distant
firing, which attracted little attention
except from the military authorities,
came at 5.30 in the morning. At 8
o'clock three German war craft, which
the majority of witnesses agree were
one battle cruiser and two lighter cruis
ers. loomed out of a heavy fog so close
underneath the cliflfs that they were
unaible to train their guns on the wire
less station on the heights.
Great Damage to Hotels
However the big resort hotels on
the esplanade of tl\,e old town offered
tempting targets and a rain of shrapnel
and lyddite shells began to fall in this
section, doing great damage to the ho
tels and destroying houses and shops
in the poorer districts. A woman in
one of these shoips was literally blown
to pieces.
One of the light cruisers seemed to
be doing most of the firing. First she
let go with her stern guns and then,
maneuvering further out, devoted her
broadsides to the most conspicuous
'buildings on the higher ground. As the
result of this bombardment three shells
; found a target in the Searboro.ugh hos
pital, one tearing a chimney from the
roof, another striking the nurses' quar
ters and the third demolishing the orna
mental facade above the entrance. The
' wall of the old castle, which looks for-
I midable, but which has been unoccupied
[for hundreds of years, was breached by
j an eight-inch shell.
Residential Section Suffers
The gunners got the correct eleva
j tion of the wireless station, but failed
| to injure it, most of the shells falling
j in an adjacent field, the turf of which
was completely ploughed up by them,
j Some of the better class of resi
dences began to sutler, one of the first
being the home of Russell Rea, mem
ber of Parliament for the district. His
life and that of his wife were saved
I by the.,faet that they had gone down
for an early breakfast and were in the
kitchen, the only part of the house
untouched, the rest being a total wreck.
At the same time a siba.ll house occu
pied by a soldier, his w r ife and their
child and nephew was struck by an ex
plosive shell, reducing t.he place to
kindling wood and killing the whole
Whole Row of Houses Wrecked
The bombardment had now been on
for fifteen minutes and the town was
given a five minutes' breathing spell.
The streets were cleared of people when
the light cruiser, after turning, brought
a new broadside into play. The Ger
man squadron th >n faced what looked
like a deserted city. • The gunners di
rected their attention to the railroad
slation t with the result that a whole
row of houses, including a church iu a
nearby street, were wrecked, but with
out loss of life, as the occupants had
sought refuge. This second bombard
ment was more- violent t.han the first,
but did less damage.
At the expiration of this second,
fifteen minute period of firing the war-'
ships drew off in a northerly direction i
and when the people of Scarborough i
again heard the booming of their,
dreaded guns at 9 o'clock the town!
of Whitby, up the coast, was the vie-1
Death Pill Envelops Peop'.e
During the early stage of the bom-J
bardnient the screeching shells caused |
an indescribable pandemonium, later'
the people became still as death under!
the thunder of the guns which rose to!
a tumultuous eresendo when the full j
broadsides were used.
When the ships drew off the sad I
search for killed and wounded began, j
At Jhe hospital, when the wounded be- j
gan to arrive, the large entry hall wit-!
nessed many pitiable scenes as anxious I
relatives awaited the result of the sur
geon's examination. Among the |
wounded were many women and chil-1
dren, an infant of four months having
its skull fractured by a shrapnel while
in its mother's arms, who escaped un
scathed. A surgeon at, the hospital
also had a marvelous escape when the
casing of an eight-inch shell burrowed
into the ground at his feet.
The military authorities, assisted by
the police, directed the exodus of the i
townspeople from the city. Women ,
were favored with seats on the tra>ns 1
with the result that but few men de-!
parted from the town.
Helplessness of Refugees
The pathetic helplessness of the refu-j
gees brought home the reality of 'war!
to this part of England. Many poor 1
people whose homes were destroyed i
sought refuge in nearby towns. Crowds j
of these waited about the station, j
thinking that the scenes of the morn-'
ing were about to be re-enacted.
One of the first notices posted in-'
strueted citizens to bring to the po- I
lice station all unexploded shells. In
accordance with these instructions a
policeman brought in a projectile which
he had picked up on the street. Ex
amination showed it had not exploded,
so it was hastily plunged into a buck
et of water.
By nightfall the town bore an out
ward appearance of calm but anxious
groups lingered about tho streets.
Many of the persons in these groups
were unsparing in their expressions of
resentment because the town was help
less to retaliate on the raiders.
London, Dec. 17, 3.28 A. !M.—The
news of the German raiders' arrival ws
promptly sent to the military authori
ties ot all coast towns and pre-pjrauged
steps were taken so as to be prepared
in case a raid developed at other points.
>'or instance, the -Mayor of Tynemouth,
on the North sea, eight miles east north
east of New Castle, immediately order
ed the gits supply turned off, directed
the police to round up a large number
of aliwis and issued a proclamation and
warned the |>eople to remain in doors.
There is much speculation in London
as to how far the German raid has suc
ceeded in creating a feeling of uneasi
ness or panic in other coast towns.
Refugees With Bandaged Wounds
One of the Loudon newspapers tele
graphed to the mayors of all cost towns
asking them what effect the news of
the enemy's visit had had. All replies
received so l'ar indicate that no i>asic
is felt.
A number of refugees and travelers
arrived in London from the bombarded
towns during the night. Some of them
showed signs of the raid in bandages
covering minor injuries received.
A commercial traveler who smoked
a cigar on the porch of a hotel at Scar
borough throughout the bombardment
'' Although there was some* excite
ment in the town the attack was over
so feoon that there was no panic. The
guns engaged in the attack were evi
dently of small calibre as the damage
done by each shell was confined to a
small area while some the shells mere
ly cut clean, small holes in buildings,
passing on harmlessly.
"My hotel was struck by several
shells, but nobody was injured. One
shell wrecked two rooms, but fortunate
ly neitiher of them was occupied."
Cool Housewife Tells Story
Another passenger from Scarborough
was a cool young housewife wtoo said:
'' At daybreak 1 glanced out of my
kitchen window and saw three warship
lying quietly in the haze a mile or two
off snore. It never occurred to me that
they were anything but English ships
so 1 went quietly about my preparations
for breakfast.
'''About 8 o'clock I heard the sound
of guns, but paid no particular notice.
A few minutes later there came a shock
-—I cannot think of a better word for
it. A shell 'had struck the house and
passed straight through the room 1 was
"1 was poaching eggs at that time.
1 looked up anl saw great holes In the
walls near the ceiliug, indicating the
course o>f the missile. I was puzzled for
a moment and then suddenly realised
that the Germans were shelling Hcar
"I took t'he famlv io t'he cellar,
where we remained for an hour, during
Which one more shell struck the roof
and fell into the drawing room, smash
ing up the furniture. Another shell
ploughed up our garden."
