I By Bion H. Butler
I Is the Moore county climate a
I myth?
Occasionally a visitor from the
j North undertakes to argue that this
j climate is sadly overated, and it nev-
i er makes me blush to hear the dem-
, onstration of the proposition, for my
I wandering foot has led me into so
many quarters of the United States
I that I have the familiarity with cli-
I mate from ocean to ocean and from
^ Gulf to the St. Lawrence which en-
i ables me to stand the bluff and to
recall some figures.
To begin with there is no perfect i
climate on the wide earth that I
know of, and I have sampled a lot
of it in this country and abroad. No I
place ia more joyous in summer time i
than the New England region. Yet as
far south as western Pennsylvania
I last winter saw in the papers from
that section that the thermometer
had gone down to 35 below zero. It
I recall correctly we had here last
winter a night of five above zero, and
we admitted that it was cold, but
forty below that IS cold. And what
is worse forty degrees down at the
bottom of the record is a bigger con
trast than forty degrees farther up.
The North is delightful in summer,
but in winter it is different.
I know all about sleigh bells and
bracing weather and the pleasures
of winter where winter is developed
to its highest. I know about snow
balling in August on the Rocky
I Mountains and falling on the ice in
I June in California, and I know the
I infinite pleasures of White Bear Lake
I in Minnesota in summer, and the
fresh and ruddy complexions of the
Wisconsin girls in February and on
throughout the entire year. And I
knew when I wa.s a printer in San
j Francisco years ago how blooming
cold the nights were as we left the
office after the morning paper was
ready for the presses, for although
we came to the shop in the afternoon
in alpaca coats we also carried over
coats to wear home at three in the
morning when the cold fogs rolled in
off of the ocean. And I recall the
northers that swept down over the
Sacramento valley in summer with

vania about the same, Maine 124,
and what makes it worse with all
the northern states is that it is the ]
low figures that make the records.!
Their cold winters hang up the ter- i
rifying figures. Think of Montana at |
50 below zero. Two or three times I
as I recall we have had below zero 1
in this section. We have pulled ;
through the winter with weather but j
a little lower than I have seen in I
Pennsylvania in the latter part ot
August, for I have seen ice frozen i
in August up there. It is plenty cold 1
enough ihere for me, but I don't !
know another climate that tempts
me in the slightest degree to move,
for other places have disadvantages
that we escape. Our real cold days '
and our real hot days are few and I
far between. i

as I can read the records seems to
bo about 103 maximum and 5 below
for a minimum. Western North Car
olina is colder. All of the North is
colder than here in the Sandhills,
and most of the Northern states have
a higher summer record. Every state
1 on the northern boundary of the
' United States from New York to
’' Washington has a higher maximum
summer heat %Jian Moore county,
I while the winter figures that make
I the records for them are fierce.
I Some time ago H. B. Emery of
Pinehurst gathered some climate
figures and the spots that he found
in the class with Moore county were
i the Bermuda islands and the coun-
^ try around San Diego, in California.

of reference to the government weath

to argue the question can find the
