Amount of Rainfall Over the Earth.
The discussion of observations on
rainfall mado first by Sir John Murray

permits on extlmation to be made of
the mean rainfall on continents, which
Is found to be about thirty fucbes por
year. The rainfall on tho ocean Is
more difficult to measure, but It hits
been estimated by Supau, and Frltsche.
taking account of all the known facts,
estimates the mean annual rainfall for
the entire surface of the earth at about
thirty-six Inches. Making use of tl:!J
number, It Is easy to calculate, that the
total rainfall amounts to 404 million
millions (it metric tons per year, 1,272

Simple Method of Cooking Cabbage.
The simplest aud quickest methods
of cooking cabbage are the best. Cab
bage must be trimmed and well wash
ed In cold, salted water, then cut Into
quarters aud tied together again wltb
a string before going into the sauce
pan, because the heart is more tender
than the Jutslde and uniform softness
Is desired. Have plenty of . boiling
water wltb a heaping tablespoonful of
in It to the half gallon of water. Let
It be boiling when the cabbage Is put
'n and cook it with the lid off, and If
t be fresh it will keep a good, color,
fhe time depends more upon the age
hun the size from twenty to forty
minutes. Delineator. ,
