weather is all right nnd running Us

what happened last year. Then he will
discourse to you on the law of averages,
and prove mathematically that, In the
long run, the seasons don't vary.
All this Is really a confession of Ignor-
ence. Meteorology, at present, 'e a
science of averages and generalities. It
has to deal with a subject whose ele
ments ate so shifty thut nobody can
surely foresee their varying combina
tions. To foretell a-change of weather Is like
foretelling the shape that a puff of
hinoke will take; and to account for a
spell of go'od or bad weather is as diffi
cult as to account for the birth and per
sistence of a cloud that hangs for hours
In a blue sky. The general causes are

concerning the bases on which It rests.

Meteorology can tell, from observa
tions gathered widely on land and sea,
what tho general state of the atmosphere
Is during a' long spell of wet or dry
weather. It can also make (very general)
picdlctlons concerning chunges likely to
occur in theao general states of tho
atmosphere, but It refuses to be held to j
strict account In such things. K you
