Almost any solid speck can be called dust if it is light enough and dry enough to float in the air. Most dust specks arc so small that they can be seen only with a microscope. There are many sources-of dust, but most dust comes from dried soil. Soil is a constantly changing mixture of many different materials. Rock particles and the remains of plants and animals become part of the soil and are fed upon by molds and microbes. When the soil dries and crumbles to dust, these living things aro part of the dust. The wind picks up particles and sweeps them away. A single particle of dust may be made up of a speck of clay with flower pollen, microbes, and salt all clinging to it. Firest fires send tons of dust into the air every year. So do cities and towns. Most city dust is man-made. It rises as smoke from factories, office buildings, schools, and homes. It comes from fuel burned in automobiles, buses, trucks, and trains. Some city dust is made of particles rubbed off in the everyday wear and tear on everything people use — clothing, furniture, floors, sidewalks. Dust is more than just an annoyance that must be cleaned up. Dust in the atmosphere affects the earth's climate. The atmosphere always cuts off about 50 per cent of the sun's heat, bouncing it back into space. And the -ttmosphere is made up of gates, dust, and water vapor. Dust plays an important part in the forming of clouds and thus in rain and snow. Clouds form when warm air laden with water vapor rises and cools. The vapor condenses around each tiny particle of dust to form a droplet of liquid. RIVETS SHOUT RIBS By Frank O'Neal THAT WINE MAS DONE WQNDESS FOR VOUR COMPLEXION HAS IMPROVED.
