WEATHER FORECASTS AND SIGNALS.



The weather bureau of the United States
department of agriculture publishes daily
more than 100,000 weather bulletins, not
counting the forecasts in the newspapers.
Most of these bulletins are in the form
of postal cards printed by postmasters
from telegraphic reports and sent by theni
to outlying towns for display at suitable
points. There is also an elaborate system of



redistribution by means of telephones and
railroads from established centers, so that
there are comparatively few accessible
places which do not cow receive daily
weather forecasts within a very short time
after the observers have completed their
work. The old system of conveying informa-
tion about the weather by means of flag
displays is also in general use.

When No. 4 is placed above No. 1. 2 or 3 it indicates warmer; when below, colder;
when not displayed, the temperature is expected to remain aboutstationary. During the late
spring and early fall the cold-wave flag is also used to indicate anticipated frosts.

By night a red light indicates easterly winds and a white light above a red light westerly

STEAM WHISTLE SIGNALS.

A warning of from fifteen to twenty sec-
onds' duration is sounded to attract atten-
tion. After this warning the longer blasts
(of from four to six seconds' duration) refer
to weather, and shorter blasts (of from one
to three seconds' duration) refer to temper-
ature; those for weather are sounded first.

THERMOMETERS COMPARED.

There are three kinds of thermometers,
with varying scales, in general use through-
out the world the Fahrenheit, Reaumur and



Centigrade. The freezing and boiling points
on their scales compare as follows:

Thermometer. Freezing pt. Boilingpl.

Fahrenheit 32 degrees 212 degrees

Reaumur zero 80 degrees

Centigrade zero 100 degrees

The degrees on one scale are reduced to
their equivalents on another by these formu-
las:

Fahrenheit to Reaumur Subtract 32, mul-
tiply by four-ninths.

Fahrenheit to Centigrade Subtract 32,
multiply by five-ninths.

Reaumur to Fahrenheit Multiply by nine-
fourths, add 32.

Reaumur to Centigrade Multiply by live-
fourths.

Centigrade to Fahrenheit Multiply by
nine-fifths, add 32.

Centigrade to Reaumur Multiply by four-
fifths.

stitution and ascended the throne of Spain
on the 16th anniversary of his birth, May
17, 1902. At the same time his mother,
Maria Christina, in a letter to the premier,
Seuor Sagasta, formally gave up the re-
gency. The chief ceremonies took place in
the chamber of deputies and the Cathedral
of St. Francis. lu the former the oath was
administered to the king by Senor Vega
Armljo, president of the cortes, in the pres-
ence of a brilliant assemblage of notables


ALFONSO XTTT.

from the chief nations of the world; in the
latter the young monarch was blessed as the
head of the catholic church in Spain. There
was no actual coronation, it being held
that Alfonso was king from the hour of his
birth. The United States was represented
by Dr. J. L. M. Curry, a former minister
to Spain.
Just before the ceremonies an anarchist
plot to kill the king by throwing a dynn-
mite bomb into his carriage was discovered,
but the conspirators were arrested before
any harm was done.
