'The Quiet ftusoing of the "British Empire" 0 ^ N THE last'day. of this month the greatest empire J;he world has ever known will cease to exist, at any rate in &'ita Ions established form.

I'll tell you why. Houses are built to resist outside pressure. Roofs are braced against falling rain and the force of gravity. Walls are braced against outside winds. But a roof may easily be lifted—and walls can be blown open from the inside. Cyclones don't blow houses over— they make them explode. The suction of the cyclone saps al the air out of a building.

He told it to me in April, 192T, when the two of us were riding a Frisco train from Fort Smith to the Apple Blossom Festival at Rogers. Fort Smith had just had a small cyclone. A month later, when I was at hime in El Dorado, the Strong disaster occurred. Mr. Byrns says that cyclones are caused by the breaking up of a big storm mass. A great storm rojls along the ground like a giant banana, with tremendous rotary wind forces blowing in one direction on the ground and in the opposite direction at the top of the mass in the clouds.
