What Makea Thunder Rumble. -
Why does thunder rumble? The
path of a lightning flush through the air
may be several miles In length. All
along this path the sadden expansion
of the heuted air a true explosion
seta up an atmospheric wave, which
spreads In all directions, and eventual
ly registers upon our ears aa thunder.
Since the lightning discharge Is almost
Instantaneous the sound wave la pro
duced at very nearly the same time
along the whole path. But the sound
wave travels Blowly through the air.
Ita speed la approximately 1,01)0 feet
per sccoufl. Thus the sound from the
part of the lightning's path that la
nearest to us reaches us first, and that
from the other ports of the path after
ward, accordlug to their distance. In
termittent crashes and booming effects
are due chiefly to lrregulnrlttes In the
shape of the path. Popular Sclenca
Egg One Hundred Year Old.
A st run ge find was made at North
allerton, Eng., recently. While work
men were sawing' through a large elm
tree they came across In the very heart
of the tree Ave drled-up starling eggs.
The eggs were 18 Inches from the ex
ternal bark, and from the concentrio
ring It Is estimated that they must
have been deposited about one hun
dred yenrs ngo. It Is surmised thai
when the tree was young a pair of
birds had matte their nest In a cavity,
and for some reason tha eggs wera
forsnken, nnd In course of time tha
wood grew around the hollow.
A Patrlotlo Duty. '

In suth condition that we can fulfill to
the utmost every duty Imposed upon us.
