As a mat- ter of fael, a drought always comes when we least expect it, most. A Common Fallacy Some persons incline to the l.elief that a wet year is sure to follow a dry one, as if the supply of moisture wore assumed to he on hand and were to he disposal of, or that a dry season follows a wet one, but this is ;in error. The tirvcst year of record in the Great Hn.siii, iKfiS, was fol- lowed in 180'! by an amount slightly below the average, and in 1805 by an amount only slightly above the aver- age. "In the nest year, I SOU, the amount was 22.25 which proved to have hecn the greatest, with three exceptions, in the entire 65 years of written history, thus making the belting, or guessing or forecasting, decidedly in favor of a drought iii IStiT.
