Whatever Lowers the Temperature
Is the Cause of Rain.
The general law of aqueous precipi
tation may be briefly staled. What
ever lowers the temperature of the
air at any place below the dew point
Is a cause of rain. Va'rlous causes
may conspire to effect this object, but
It is chiefly brought about by the as
cent of tue air Into the higher regions
of the atmosphere, by which, being
subjected to less pressure, it expands
and in doing so lowers its tempera
ture. These ascending currents are
caused by the heating of the earth's
surface by" the sun's rays or, in fact,
by anything which raises the temper
ature of the superincumbent air, and
It Is very obvious that the continual
discharge of large pieces of ordnance
will have a considerable effect In rais
ing the temperature of the air lying
on the earth's surface, which will as
cend, expand and discharge in aque
ous particles In the form of rain for
the foregoing reasons.
The gingham-shlrted boy had made
a break to pass the ticket-seller at the
circus entrance, but that gentleman
had caught him and rudely thrust him
"Poor little devil," said a Beedy
looking man In the crowd. "If I had
the money I'd buy him a ticket my
self." The crowd looked sympathetic, but
said nothing, while the boy sobbed as
if his heart would dissolve.
"I've only got a nickel, little feller,"
pout on the seedy looking one, "an'
that won't do you no good. Say," ho
continued, turning suddenly to the
crowd, "let's do one good act In our
lives. Let's buy him a ticket."
It looked for a minute as If a col
lection was to be started, but a benevolent-looking
old gentleman nipped it
In the bud by slipping a half-dollar
Into tho hand of the boy, who prompt
ly disappeared into the tent.
"I thank you a thousand times for
that kind act, sir," said the seedy
looking man.
"You seem to take quite an Interest
in the little fellow," remarked tho
benevolent one.
"Well, I should think I ought to,"
nnswered the seedy-looking man,
proudly. "That's the only son I got!"
Ate Eggs 100 Years Old.
At the banquet given In San Fran
cisco recently to celebrate the estab
lishment of a Chinese Chamber of
Commerce priceless Chinese delica
cies were served. Among the guests
were fifty Americans. Although chop
sticks were used, all of the speech
making was In English.
Some of the Items In tho dinner,
that cost $25 a plate, were as follows:
Snow fungus, which retails at $40 a
pound and Is one of tho rarest Chin
cse delicacies; sharks' flns, birds'
nests, preserved eggs, one hundred
years old; melon seeds, which tho
white guests could not eat with chop
sticks; brains of yellow fish and water
lily seeds with ducks. In all there
were seventeen courses.
A Mild Rebuke.
When one woman rebukes another,

Absent-Minded Benevolence.
A Dellever In organized charity
cites the following as an example of
misdirected tender-he.artedness:
A very benevolent, but absend
mlnded old gentleman, riding in his
carriage one hot July day, noticed a
toad In the dusty road gasping ,wjth
the heat. In the kindness o'f " his
heart he climbed down, tenderly
moved the poor toad Into the shade
of his carriage, and then, thoroughly
satisfied with his good deed, climbed
up again and drove on.
He What a beautiful set of teeth
she has.
She Yes, he inherited them from
nor mother.
Measure of Train Speed.
A traveler waited at a certain
English provincial town In vain for,
the much overdue train on the
branch lino. Again he approached
the solitary sleepy-looking porter
and Inquired for tho twentieth time.
'Isn't that train coming soon?" At
that moment a dog came trotting
up the line, and a glad smile illumi
nated tho official's face. "Ah, yes.
sir," replied the porter, "It'll be
getting near now, Here comes the
engine driver's dog."

Shoes In Which She Could Walk Far
ther Than In Others.
Mrs. Frlnk was a trusting soul, and
rarely questioned the opinions of oth
ers about matters concerning which
they wero supposed to be Informed.
Ono day she came home with a pair
of new shoes under her arm. "Got
them at Brides'," she explained, "and
they're the best I ever bought you."
"What is so very good about them?"
Inquired her son, for whom the shoes
wero Intended,
"Why, the salesman said that you
could walk farther in them than In
any others without getting tired, and
I said that you couldn't walk very far
Just now on account of your knee, you
know, and he said that he meant
farther for the same distance. So I
boi'ght them, and hero they are. Save
the string, please."
She did not notice the smile on her
son's face as he undid the package,
and he was spared the trouble of ex
plaining. A Punctual Bird.
What tempts tho little humming
bird that we see in our gardens to
travel every spring from near the
equator to as far north as tho arctic
circle, leaving behind him, as he does,
for a season, many tropical delights?
He Is thi only one of many humming
birds tnat placidly loaves tho land of
galiy colored birds, to go Into volun
tary exile In the North, east of tho
Mississippi. How It stirs the Imagina
tion to picture the solitary, tiny mi
grant, a mero atom of blrdllfe, mov
ing above the range of human sight
through the vast dome of the sky!
Borne swlftiy onward by rapidly vi
brating little wings, he covers the
thousands of miles between his winter
home and his summer one by easy
stages, and arrives at his chosen des
tination, weather permitting, at ap
proximately the same date year after
year. What a methodical and punc
tual bird! Tho Sabbath School Vlsl
tor. A Good Reason.
A professor tells this story at his
own expense. He was Instructing a
class of boys about the circulation ot
the blood and to make sure that they
understood him he said:
"Can you tell me why it Is that If X
stood on my head the blood would
rush to my head, and when I stand
on my feet, there is no rush of blood
to the feet?"
Then a small boy, after pausing for
a short time, answered:
"It is because your feet are not
empty, sir."
