sor to the amount that comes
from the sun. Hence we could
not expect eitiier the planets or
the moon appreciably to affect
the weather. They do not supply
enough heat, the one thing that
causes all our weather changes.
To most people the above reason
ing may seem quite sufficient and ;
conclusive, but there is still an
other and an entirely different
method o f testing the whole ques
tion. We can observe the po- j
sitions o f the planets and the
kind of weather during each posi-j
tion and see whether the same
sort o f weather always comes
when the planets are in the samel
position. This kind o f examina
tion has often been made, both
for the planets and for the moon,
but not the slightest influence o f
either upon our weather has ever
To sum up: We have every rea
son to believe that neither the
planets nor the moon can have
any appreciable effect on the
weather, because they furnish so
little heat upon which all weath
er changes ultimately depend,
and this belief is fully supported
by weather records.
The belief, still to be found in
ail countries,that the planets and
the moon do affect the weather,
never had any scientific basis
whatever; it is only a remnant o f
the many superstitions generat
ed and fostered by that other and
greater superstition, astrology.

IHE WANDERING BOY
“ Oh, where is my wandering
boy tonight?” has been sung for
thousands o f times with tender
ness and pathos, but how many
o f the singers or hearers, ever
gave heed to the pertinent in
quiry o f the song? Statistics are
frequently published showing the
great majority o f our boys spend
ing their nights away from the
better influences o f home. As
they grow into youth and early
manhood they seem to grow into
the world and worldly ways. I f
the singer’s plaintive question
could be answered imblicly in any
ordinary meeting where the song
is sung, it would cause a tremen
dous sensation, and many a heart
would bow down in sorrow and
pain. For some reason it is just
as well that the nightly haunts
of “ the boys” are not specifically
mentioned in local public meet
ings, and yet the matter is one
o f common report. The boys are
too often out o f home, out o f the
church and Sunday school, out of
organizations o f moral character,
