The phenomenon exhibited upon the wire netting to which we have alluded, fully demonstrates the principle Solar Spectfum of color selection as applied to the foliage and bloom of vegetation and undoubtedly is applicable to every other object in nature, whose surface is adorned and made beautiful with the bright hues of the sun. ORIGIN OF THUNDER STORMS.

Being of a highly conductive nature, the electric current is arrested in its course and becomes insulated among the clouds. The constant changing of their density and the humid condition of the air below cause it to leap from one cloud to another, and also break away from its insulation in the form of lightning which makes a quick descent to earth, always with instantaneous rapidity; taking short backtracks as if undecided as to which possessed the greater afiinity, the earth or the clouds above, which-is the forked lightning that plays such a lively part in a thunder storm.
