Noticeable Variety in Shape
The formation of hall, according to
the careful deductions of Rollo It ns
sell, a «dentist who made a special
study o f this subject, takes place In
clouds which are commonly at a great
height, between 15,0(10 and 40.000 feet.
The prominent conditions associated
with the production of these clouds
are the expansion and congelation of
warm, moist air in a -state of cyclonic
whirl, combined with the sudden com
mingling o f masses o f air differing
greatly in temperature and vapor ten
sion. The snowflake or spicule which
forms the nucleus of a hailstone
originates in the uppermost cloud, and
is electrified as a result o f condensa
tion. As It falls, particles o f Ice, or
globules o f water whose temperature
Is under the freezing point, attach
themselves to the nucleus, grouping
into concentric layers or In a stellate
formation. The great variety In the
shape of the hailstones Is due to the
variable form assumed by the primary
thunderstorms, there Is no reason for
regarding electricity as the primary
agent in the production of h ail; but It
is when electrical storms are prevalent
that strong ascending currents, loaded
with hot and moist air, are projected
Into the cold upper strata of the at
mosphere and electrical clouds are

W hy Many Pensioned
Persons Die Early
“ It Is quite conceivable that the ef
fect o f suddenly sitering the mode of
life, breaking with the habits of 40
years and more, and having unlimited
time with nothing to do. Is literally to
kill a man."
This statement was made by Cyril
F. Warren In a paper read before the
British Instltnte of actuaries, dealing
with the mortality among pensioners
o f banks nnd Insurance companies.
"I f the worker anticipates the day
o f his retirement," he added, “ and
makes preparstlons to occupy his time
adequately, the break will not have
such an III effect, and he will benefit
to the full from the relaxation from
a sedei.iary life."
Why Links Lure Golfers
There Is rare quality to the music of
the links. The beginner does not hear
I*. It Is only the trained ear which de
tects the melody o f the mtdtron. the
music o f the mashie, the poetry o f the
putter, the »ong o f the spade, the croon
of the cleek and the drone of the
driver. It takes understanding to ap
preclate the lay o f the lie, nnd self
restraint to remain Impassive at the
fortissimo o f the foozle. The lure of
the links must be sensed before one
feels the syncopation o f the stance and
moves of the tempo of the tee.
No music can he more alluring to
the soul o f man than tins blending of
links hs-mony to the trled-and-true
golfer. N'o audience Is thrilled to a
higher pitch than that which Is swayed
