THE APPARENT WEATHER MAKERS OF POLITICS.  Just as people tacitly assume that he who understands the weather, and foretells it about a day in advance, makes the weather, so even the educated and learned, with a display of superstitious faith, ascribe to great statesmen as their most special work all the important changes and conjunctures that have taken place during their administration, when it is only evident that they knew something thereof a little earlier than other people and made their calculations accordingly, thus they are also looked upon as weather makers and this belief is not the least important instrument of their power.
