Most travelers who visit the Holy

to that restricted part west of .Ionian.
iTbe mountainous regions of Moab as
seen by them from Jerusalem lire lost
In n purple bare that constantly hang
lover them, and the great stretches be
I yond are covered In mystery. This
is true partly because of tbe fewer
historical Incidents connected with the
eastern regions, but mainly on account
of the great abyss of the Jordan val
ley that has always acted as a barrier,
l-'ew who descend Into the valley l.oiH)
feet below sea level undertake to climb
the hills beyond, which rise to a
height of a.! feet. Though Its glory
is far outshone by that of western
Palestine, still, both in tbe old and the

its own nnd from an economic stand

Mr. Hug had occaslou to make use

for fbe liojs, tbe former University
studcDt i eel. led nu a domestic science

did. One of the buys wbo worked,

NOISE OF THUNDER.
to Hesting of Gstts Along tit
Line of tlsctrio Dischargs.
To Processor Trowbridge we owe aa
experiment to explain the noise of
thunder. II has usually been thought
that tbe noise Is caused by the clott
ing up of the vacuum created by the
passage of lightning, the nlr rushing
lu from nil sides with a clap, but Uio
Intensity of the noise Is rather iOh
proportionate, MIH n s ,,,,w NupMiMd
that the thunder Is due to the iuteuse
beating of tbe gases, especially tbe
gas of water vapor along tbe line of
the electric discharge, and the cone
ipieiit conversion of suspended loots
lure lnl steam nl enormous pressure.
In this way the crackle with which
a peal of thunder sometimes begin
might be regarded as the sound of
steam explosions on a small wale,
caused by Inductive discbarges before
the main (lash, 't he rumble would be
the overlapping steam explosions, nnd
the final chip, which soundest loudest,
would be the slcnin explosion nearest
Io the auditor In the ease of ruin
tiling thunder the lightning Is passing
from cloud to cloud. When (he Hash
passes from I be earth to I be clouds
the clap Is loudest at the beginning.
Professor Trowbridge gave sub
stance to these suppositious by caus
ing electric Hashes Io pass fixiin peJnl
to point through terminals dollx-d In
soaked eotlon wool, nnd he succeeded
In magnifying tho crack of the ebv
tile spurk to a tcrrlfilng extent. I.on
