SOME SIGNS ARE SURE THINGS
Ambition "Prnnhrts" Olrrn Expert
Advice In Foretelling Clinnavs
In Meteorological Con
dition.. Tho weather prophet, who. up to tha
time of tho establishment ot the United
States weather bureau, could be found
In every town and village of tho country
and who was known by his ability to tell
whnt kind of weather to expect' on tho
morrow, has received "vindication" at the
hands of the Deportment of Agriculture.
The meteorological experts of thin de
partment declare that thoso ot us who
laughed at the predictions ot thwo
weather "sharps" have don them an In
justice. They further declare there are
certain signs to be seen about the sun,
moon, stars, and even In the wind, which
can be counted upon to foretell changes
In meteorological conditions.
In speaking of the old weather prophets
and these signs, the men at the weather
bureau in Washington, say that a prophet
not only can recognize these signs at a
glance, but that he has a weather proverb
at hand to Interpret them with. For In
stance, tho fisherman today, as In the
past, will weigh anchor and flea from a
gathering storm when to the uninitiated
thero is no Indication of anything other
than continued fair weather. This flslwr
man has noted some small cloud upon th
horizon, and, recalling one of his well
known proverbs, he at once knows that
bad weather Is on Its way.
"Tho coming season" is very Important
to the farmer of the country, for upon
tho weather it will bring forth depends
his livelihood, if he knew what to ex
pe3t during the coming season hn would
be able to tell what crops to plant and
where; whether upon hill or lowland. In
light or heavy soli, and 'when best to
cultivate them-vltal points for his suc
cess. Thero are certain proverbs that
aro used to help tell what the coming
season may bo. For Instance:
Year of snow,
Fruit will grow,
A year of snow, a year of plenty.
Self evident truths.
That these, and similar proverbs are
often true Is evident from tho fact that
a more or less continuous covering of
snow, Incident td a cold winter, not only
delays tho blossoming of fruit trees till
after tho probable season of killing frost,
but also prevents the alternate thawing
and freezing and rulnouo to wheat and
other gralons. Some other proverbs con
cerning seasons arc:
A late spring never deceives.
January warm, tlio Lord have mercy.
If you see grass In January,
Lock your grain In your granary.
January blossoms nil no man's cellar.
January and February
Do fill or empty the granary.
"A red sun has water In his ey." la a
ramniar proverb that belongs to tho cjass
which has to do with tho sun. This Is a
weather proverb that contains a good
deal of truth, for tho condition that moat
favors a red sun Is a great quantity of
dust In a damp atmosphere. A red sun,
therefore, say tho weather bureau ex
perts, commonly Indicates tho presence of
uotn tno oasentlal rain elementa-that Is,
dust and moisture. Here la another rod
sun weather proverb:
If red tho sun begin his race,
Be suro tho rain will fall apace.
There are many proverbs, ranging
from tho good and useful to the ml.
leading and absurd, concerning the eoinr
or tno sky at sunrise and sunset. In
many ways tho most interesting of all
of them la that which, according to Mat
thaw, Christ used to answer to the
i-nansees ana Badducees, when they
asked that He would show them a sign
from heaven. It Is a follows:
"Ho answered and" said upon them.
When It Is evening, ya say. It will be
fair weather; for the sky Is red.

Many proverbs foretelling rain and bad
weather are based on tha appearance of
solar and lunar halos and coronas, and
as these form only when there is much
moisture in the air, and some condensa
tion, the proverbs of this class are well
founded. Coronas are the small colored
rings of light that enctrcU any bright
object when seen through a mist, though
tho term Is used to designate only the
colored rings around the sun and moon.
Typical of auch proverbs Is that of thj
Zunl Indians, who say':
