l.u.st bulletin gave forecasts of <1 iwli.
lianciH lo cross continent Aug. 25 to
29. warm waves 2 1 to 2", cool waves
27 to 31, Radical changes expected
High temperatures followed by
threatening frosts in northern sec-
tions. Planetary v/eat horology has
come to stay and those who study
woutherology most will gel most
benefit out of weather forecasts. This
Is a subject well worth being taken
up in the schools and debating socl-
tles. Electro-magnetism Is rapidly
replacing steam anil weatherology
rests on electro-inunetlsin. Thus the
most important study of the high
schools and colleges-electro-magne-
tism -is the basis of weatherology.
Therefore the most Important of all
agricultural questions, cropwoeutlier,
lias for its basis the most important
of all commercial questions, clect.ro-
mugnetlsm. These should become
more prominent in our schools
Next warm waves will reach Van-
couver nour Aug. 31 and Sept, 5 and
temperatures will rise on all the I'ucl-
flc slope. They will cross crest of
Itockles by close of Sept. 1 und 6,
plains sections 2 and 7, meridian 90,
great lakes and Ohio-Tennessee val-
leys 3 and 8, eastern sections I and
9, reaching vicinity of Newfoundland
near Sept. 5 and 10. Storm waves will
follow about one day behind warm
waves and cool waves about one day
behind storm waves.
The drouth will continue In the
southwest half of tho country eust of
tho Itockles but showers and cooler
weather will increase. Not much force
to the storms and not much rain. Very
severe and dangerous storms are
expected last half of September and
In those bad storms lie the hopes for
molstu e sufficient to onalile the
sowing Winter grain because, to do
so, 1 must know the exact locality
and the kind of soil, whether high,
rolling lands or low ana flat. It does
not pay to sow on dry soil, particular-
ly while a great drouth is In opera-
tion. I have advised hundreds of far-
mers and dealers and #0 per cent of
the advice has been good.
I still bolleve the war will end this
year. This belief has been wholly
based on the apparent fact that It
can not pay the Kaiser nor tho Ger-
man peoplo to continue the war.
Some have taken this war forecast to
be bused on astrology. It Is not. I
am not an astrologer. My weather
forecasts are based on weather
I know that the three years drouth,
affecting the southwest half of ths
country east of Rockies, Is not per-
manent. The good crop-seasons will
return to all that country. I could
definitely state when and give the
reasons why but It does not pa# to
glvo away such facts at all times.
4 3. As the Moon receded from the
Earth the Inner carbon belts would
bo first to precipitate and—If the
Kartli had carbon rings similar to
Saturn—they would bo first to fall,
course they would not all coino down
at one time. I'crimps thousands of
years wore used up before each of
the l«0 strata of coal was deposited.
Those lower coal strata are below the
11 ino bods. If llmo came from the
bones of fish—which I doubt—tho
carbon must liuvo come down first.
There could bo no fish without tho
carbon. There could bo no vegetable
beds to make carbon till after carbon
was abundant, official sclonco has
failed to account for great, deep beds
of almost pure carbon, almost free
room iish or woody substances-Science
has tried in vain to change pete Into
coal. Vegetation, pete and coal aro
largely composed of carbon, but. of-
flclul science has failed to demon-
strate that the 30-root anthracite Coal
beds almost pure carbon—canto
