THE MOON AND THE WEATHER. That, tho moon actually has an influence upon the weather an eminent Australian meteorolo- gist is quite prepared to believe. The rainfall on the coast of New South Wales is irregular, but in the interior three distinct periods have been traced, beginning with 1851, 1870, and 1889. In the first six years of each period the rain was abundant, this being the time when the moon was nenring its farthest point south in declination. But other years, after the moon had started north, were dry, and drought in 1895 to 1900 was severe enough to cause the starva- tion of 25,000,000 sheep.
