“OF the making of many books there is no end,” and the natural result is that some books remind us that better books have already been written which tell us what the new ones have to tell. There is scarcely a weather proverb in the present book which is not given in Inward's “Weather Lore,” a book with which the author claims no acquaintance; there are a number of beautiful quotations which make one long for summer when summer is not here; and there are, in addition, a few sayings, such as “If boys be beaten with an elder stick it hinders their growth,” whose association with the weather is remote Perhaps they are essential to a “Medley.”

A Medley of Weather Lore.
