Air moving past water causes the water to evaporate. The heat necessary to cause evaporation is drawn out of the passing airstream and the air is cooled. The human body uses this same principle to control body temperature. Sweat evaporates, cooling the skin, any by extension the body.
Modern evaporative cooler uses a fan to draw outside air through filter pads, wetted by a pump. Water trickles down from the top of the pads, filtering out air of impurities and lowering the air temperature due to the evaporation of water.
This is the magic of evaporative cooling.
