1 THE WIND AND WEATHER.
\ Small Town and Country Folks Know
| Charlotte Observer.
“As summer is the time when we
ij ! have the most weather and tatk the
s I most weather,” said one of the boys
I; last night “this dissertion on the wind
j j and the weather is from one of the
l northern papers, and may be timely
j and not uninteresting.”
“The weather is a much discussed
topic, as Mark Twain humorously
pointed out. At present all kinds of
\ 1 predictions are being made, one theory
being that old Sol is dying and that a
, glacial period will visit Mother Earth.
) If Sol is dying he is passing away
] with an abnormal fever. He still has
>j enough potency to make it exceeding
ly hot for us.
S “Our interest in the weather is pro
>; bably greater in the summer than in
the winter, as we want to know if it
will rain or be fair, so that we can at
> tend a baseball game, go fishing, golf
ing, boating, etc.
“The average person in the city is
> not so much a weather prophet as is
II the sailor, the farmer and the town
dweller. They live close to nature,
and have a better opportunity to ob
serve the weather signs.
“There are weather signs ar.d wea
ther prophets galore. Some can pre
s diet what the weather will be with
n considerable accuracy, especially sail
ors, as the weather is an important
S factor in their business.
|j i “The sailors pay particular atten
tion to the direction of the wind, for
ij this is an important weather sign.
Ij Thoreau, who was a remarkably close
< student of nature, understood ‘the
I wind that blows.’
“Men say they know many things,
t Bult lo! they have taken wings—
JP The arts and sciences
jfl And a thousand appliances;
I j The wind that blows
V Is all that anybody knows.
j “When you are camping and fish
k ing, take a compass along and find
tfi out from which direction the wind is
£ “The east wind is usually a bad one,
[bringing raw weather and rain. When
the wind is in the east rain is on the
“The north wind brings cool and re-
Ij freshing weather in summer, but no
rain in spite of the fact that often
| dark clouds, threatening rain, are
I! driven through the sky.
| “The South wind brings heat in the
summer and sometimes ushers in a
£ “The West wind is the best wind,
because the weather will be fair so
* long as the wind remains in the west,
js “Os course, the wind does not al
j ways blow directly from the above
l four directions, coming also from the
js southeast, southwest, northeast and
I northwest, often shifting suddenly.
< “There are cloud and sky signs.
|S When the clouds are soft and fleecy
[j the weather "will be fair. When the
k clouds have an oily appearance it will
| be windy. Very oily, hard, rolled and
I ragged clouds mean a gale. When the j
L light scudding clouds are propelled
across ponderous masses there will be
- wind and rain.
“When the light, scudding clouds
jj appear alone there will be only wind.”
Bodies Are Found.
Winston-Salem. June 16.—The bo
ll dies of Fred Enscore, aged 18, and
> Walter McGee, aged 23, who were
H drowned in the lake of the North
I Winston water works, were found and
> taken out Thursday, Enscore’s being
H located at 11:30 this morning and Mc
ij Gee’s at 2 o’clock this afternoon. The
searching party was headed by Capt.
| Harry Fox, of Butte, Montana, bal
lj loon aviator and expert swimmer who
l is making his headquarters in Wins-
I ton-Salem. It was while swinging
') along one of the boats that one of the
l searchers touched the body of En
score with his feet.
McGee’s body was located near the
j'l middle of the lake, after the stream
had been drained to a low depth.
I Ernest Rollins, the third member of
the party rowing in the pond, has i
been placed under arrest by police
officers on the charge of trespassing
on city property. He is being held
I in the city jail in default of SSOO bond.
| . Index to Prosperity.
I Atlanta, Ga., June 18. —This is not
an automobile advertisement but is a ,
statement which is borne out by the
facts. It is contended by business men
who ought to know that the automo
bile is an index to prosperity. They •
say they would like to see one before
the door of every farmer and every
i laboring man, so that after the day’s
work is over he could put his wife and
j children in the car and take a spin.
It would make life worthwhile for
them, it is asserted.
Undoubtedly this is the correct view
Instead of “doing more to ruin the
country than anything else,” as one
> pessimist here claimed, the automobile
j) has been a powerful agency in bring
[J ing about the present prosperity of

you meal. Beard Bros.
