When the searchers uncovered It the pudgy lace broke into a merry laugh, and the little hands dropped tha chips of timber they had been playlQg with and were extended to the rescuer*. A meteorologist In the employ ol the United Htatea Signal Bervlce was askoii re- a hack wrrn a tobkado. -I oilers know that wiw on active heller." he remarked, as he came iu sight oi her. standing erect on tbe slanting trunk, "but I never allowed shi could climb a Ireo." Where a tornado paises over a considerable body of water It takes the familiar form known as a waterspout  That is. It lUlliaXAIILK KSCAPB or AK 1NK\st. sweeps up a mooa ot water that eoo-i v/hlrl-Ing over the surlaoe with trcinondou* wrlthlniss and gyratlonv. Just attar the close of Iha war I waa lying In iho Chesapeake in a slooi>-ol-war. A boat heavily ladeu with a awlmroing party had been allowed to go ashore; and just aa It was returning a larrlbla cloud came down one ol the small oreaka at a hel. ht apparently ol only a lew hundred leet As It reached the opan bay a leaden-colored. snake-Uke column sprang up to meet tbe cloud, and came twisting and squirming straight for the boat* ThAlatter waa so crowded.thataply a few oont oould be pulled, sad there seemed no escape lor the moo unleaa thay oould reach tba ahlp. Ualorlunately not a gun In the battery waa loaded, and we could not open thn BMtsauie and lo�d on* balura th* wat'>r-spout would be upon us. It wo*, ol cour^o. questlouaMa what would be the late ol tha ship llsuli If the waterspout struck us. but I don't think that ideaooourred many on*. soengruiMd were we In the late ol our sblpmatu in tha boat I've boau' crews were catlKdawoy to be ready to lower laalr booU the Inalaat the *|muc should peas, in order to plok ur> tbe men who weie not swept on aIoIS. The uieu at th* oar* pulled with (ha *a�r e done. With a tornado the caaa Is different. The latter is a comparatively limited affair, altbough It hoi tremendous power compresaod in its narrow lunneL A tornado's traok will aoms-times be not more than a quarter ol a mils wide, while a cyclone takea in a much larger territory. Irequently many miles. Both ore generated by the Intermlnglliur ol cold and warm air currents, and both have tho same rotary motion. Tbe gyrations ol the tornado may be distinguished a considerable distance off Irom the actual scene of disturbance. Tornadoes almost invariably lollow in theirack ol a severe storm, and go in u northeasterly direetlon. Their velocity varies Irom M to possibly as bigb as ISO miles an boar. The premonitions ol a cyclone are a fresh breei^e setting In from the south, with a sultry atmosphere and banking clouda to the north or northwest These Indications are accompanied by a gradual fall of tho barometer, much more decided, but leas sudden, than In the case ol a tornado. When fnlrly started the cyclone will travel immense distances, sooietlmos over 1.000 miieK. Its rotary motion Is similar to that of the tornaoo. but less concentrated, owing to iu wider expanse. lui line ol progress is ni.irked by curves, showing a swaying movement where it bus encountered conflicting conditions and either overcome or avoided them. A oecullsrity of all groat oyclonio storms is that, while the storm It-sell may be traveling at tbe slow rate ot ten or twelve mllea an hour, the wind may bo rushing ahead at a velocity of IDO miles on hour. No cyclone or tornado ever begins earlier than 'i o'clock In the altsrnoon. The at-moapheric condition^ are never present before that hour. Nor will a orclone over orlgluate later than sundown. Should ons come altar that you mar set It down as a vlaitor that has traveled ever sluc� alter-noon. and which will keep on traveling until the supply ol material is exhausted.
