Spoilt for Laying. ' The motorist was bowling along well over the legal pace, when a terri fied clucking told him he was running ftful of some wayside poultry. 'I'll trouble you for fourteen shil lings, guv'nor,' observed a gentleman in corduroys, who appeared on the scene. 'That'll be three and sixpence apiece for four chickens.' 'But T only killed two remonstrated the motorist, as he took off his 'gog- gles and gazed at the victims of twen tieth-century science. 'Them other two'll never lay a blessed egg arter this,' reclared the countryman. 'Dearme, is that so?' exclaimed the man in oilskins, as he dropped the sum demanded into the outstretched point. 'It's due to fright, I suppose?' 'Partly fright, perhaps,' chuckled the countryman. 'but I reckon it's mostly 'cos they're cocks.'

For instance we may have bot weather for a week or two, but we would not, with correctness, say the climate was hot, forchmate means the average condition of the weather of a place throughout the year, and the winter may have been intensely cold, so we see to calculate accurately we must consider the four seasons. Climate may be affected by the distance a place. is from the sea. A place inland will not have the same temperate climate as one on the coast but will suffer from the extremes of heat and cold. Winds, too, have a moderating effect on the climate of a place. Take for instance a coastal town in summer. A cool breeze from the sea cools to some extent the intense heat of the day. In Siberia winds do not have a moderating effect but urge on t...
