  • Epigraph:"Apart from ominous indications in some parts of Australia, the cables tell of severe drought threatening Europe. English, Welsh and French, agriculture is menaced or already crippled severely, and only a miracle, it is said, can save Paris from an acute water shortage. Some authorities attribute conditions to the influence of sun spots."
