test of the simplified construction
and the comparison of the results
with those shown by the present
legal types, which require wood
sheathing. Simplified construction,
which has been adopted as legal in
many cities, and was practiced by
the government in building housing
facilities during the war, was de
veloped to meet a demand for
cheaper, but .efficient construction,
according to Mr. Smith. It repre
sents, he explained, the composite
idea's of experts from all parts of
the country, who conducted exhaus
tive tests and collected information
for several months before issuing
their specifications.
Use Metal Lathi.
The simplified construction leaves
out wood sheathing entirely in wall
construction, Mr. Smith said. Metal
lath is laid directly on the studding
of a dwelling and overlaid with
three coats of plaster, each one
quarter of an inch thick. The outer
layer is a surface coat. A half
inch layer is spread inside the metal
lath, between the studs. In the
place' of lath and plaster an insulat
ing layer is placed inside the stud
ding, on which the interior plaster
can be spread. According tc Mr.
Smith, this type of construction is
cheaper than the present legal type,
can be finished in less time, and
also is stronger and easier to heat.
If the tests prove satisfactory,
the city council will be asked to au
thorize the simplified construction,
Mr. Smith said. The city officials
have promised to attend the experi
ments. Runaway Train Almost

Why Does Heavy Rain Usually
Follow Thunder? '
(Copyright. 1930 by the Wheeler Syn
dicate, Inc.)
The connection between a
sharp clap of thunder and a heavy
downpour of rain is not, con
trary to the general belief, be
cause the thunder jostles the
cloud particles together into rain
drops. In the violent turmoil
.between the positive and negative
electricity in a thundercloud
there are places where the pro
duction of drops, through con
densation, and their subsequent
splitting up, proceeds more rap
idly than in others. Hence, in
these places there will be more
.drops to fall as rain and also
more electrification the rainfall
being precipitated a&out the same
time as the electric flash. We
have,' then, starting earthward at
the same instant, light, - sound
and raindrops.
The light, traveling at a speed
of some 186,000 miles a second,
reaches us almost instantly. The
sound travels far more slowly
only about 1,090 feet a second,
and the rain falls still more slow
ly. Thus we observe first the
lightning, then the thunder and
then ' the rain though they are
all started toward us at practi
cally the same moment.

think that I would let any ordinary

my answer came to me.
I would make a' confidant of my

going to Lillian. That he would ap

sure. I knew also that he placed
rmore confidence in her judgment
and that of Allen Drake than in any
other human beings. .And this
tribute from thei man who before

only indication of the quickened in

was the intent brightness of his eyes

realized that the effects of the terri

quick to see how I might in part
excuse the omission of which I had
been guilty. "I wish, father, dear,
you had sometimes. I am afraid I
would have troubled you often."
His eyes lightened with a distinct
look of relief. Then he smiled whim
You are very like your mother,
my dear, ' lie said quickly, then
looked faintly troubled, as though
the comparison had risen involun
tarily to his lips. I filed the remark
away for future mental reference.
Long ago my mother had told me
and in the letter I found after her
death she had reiterated that I was
very like her. She had seemed to
find in the fact reason for worry as
to my marital happiness, had
blamed her own temperament for
part of my father's shortcomings. I
wondered vaguely if the little re
mark he had let slip had been in any
sense a key to unlock that long-
buried mystery of the differences
between my father and my mother.
I wondered also if mv father, sitting
aloof, a specator at the drama of my
own married life, might not have it
in his power to give me many a po
tent hint on that ever-present most
vital problem of all wives holding
mv husband.
But all this was beside the pres
ent question. I dared not dally with
speculation or introspection for fear
we might be interrupted. I drew my
breath, spoke quickly:
"The reason I am going to see
Mrs. Underwood is this," I said.
"Grace Draner has been released
from prison."
He waited for a long minute be
fore replying.
"I expected she would be," he
said at last. " "But I did not think it

"If you and Grannie will help me

we'll harness the beetles," Taro said.
"Won't it hurt them?" Take asked.
