I first season of the new enlarged and famous wild West exhibition and realistic presentation of the scenes of tie late Indian uprising including the Wildam weird the vagaries of i. Jennings to electricity. Of the fact Itiat a heavy downpour of rain usually follows the discharge of lightning the experience of another observer is of interest. During a recent conversation with prof. Samuel a. King the Well known aeronaut upon the subject of atmospheric electricity he furnished a reason for this oct Virance stating that he has often observed from the car of a the i across of a Thun Der storm immediately beneath him. From a portion of a. Cloud Cov ering a Large portion of the heavens a band of flame shot out in the direction of an isolated Cloud some distance Wirich Ein mediately loft its Cloud form and earthward As a volume of rain the prof is of the opinion that As soon As the isolated Cloud gives up its electricity it releases a tension which holds the molecules of matter apart Aud precipitation in the form of raid is the result. Perhaps than Thunder a due to the explosion of oxygen and had Ryan forming rain and its subsequent Echo in space. The United rotates government a recently made inquiries into the subject of photo lightning and it is to be hoped the matter will be taken up and investigated thoroughly to the results of the labor will certainly be of practical value in the future. At Midnight september 5 i noticed flashes of lightning illuminating my lied room. A camera was loaded and an excursion into the country taken hoping to obtain a few new photo graphs of Jove s Handiwork. The night was very foggy and the flashes of the frequent and vivid gave Only blurred images of Trees in the foreground at a. M., As i was about despairing of obtaining photographs a sudden Streak of lightning shot right through the fog followed by a heavy peal of Thunder and n Leas than thirty seconds the jog hid entirely disappeared being precipitated by the electricity in the atmosphere. In these rain producing Days per haps some will take a hint from this occurrence for the dissipation of fog of a Large scale by introducing Large Power driven Holtz machines on shipboard and sending a Stream of electricity into the fog Laden air from various Points along the rigging thus producing a Clear area in the neighbourhood of the ves Sel.
