Two weeks of Good weather will mean thousands to Farmers Washington sept. 2.�?the monthly weather crop by Tho weather Bureau says the Corn crop is late and will probably require about two weeks More of favourable weather to place it beyond injury from Frost. Of course this does not apply to the condition of the crop in Southern Kansas Abd thence eastward to Tennessee and Kentucky whore at this Date the crop is Well advanced. Reports from the Cotton Region indicate that the unfavourable weather has resulted in permanent injury to crops in some sections. Especially in Alabama where shedding will materially diminish the yield while in Texas the yield May remain Tho same As last year owing to the increased lumber May go up. Anyway 12,000,000 feet in Wisconsin streams can to come Down. Superior wis., sept. 4.�?the Early closing Down of All lumber Mills at the head of the Lake is probable. The cause is Lack of logs in the Amin icon and Middle Rivers. There Are 12,000,000 feet of logs Here belonging to three Mills. Early in the Spring the logs were Frozen together in streams and were not thawed Loose until the Spring freshest passed and the water became too Low to raft. A great Many men will be thrown out of employment and All companies having logs South of Lake Superior will be affected and lumber prices will Advance materially. Secretary Hester a figures.

Bummer of results obtained m new England and All Over the country. A Complete census of tobacco grown in the Connecticut and Housatonic valleys and intervening territory has been taken during the past to Days by the new England Homestead. This shows that the 1891 crop of Cigar Leaf tobacco is grown on 58 acres in new Hampshire Vermont 77 Massachusetts. 2404 Connecticut 6742, while the same states last year grew respectively 48. 56, 2131 and 6102 acres. Two thirds of the crop was harvested saturday night and is of the Best Quality and weight Ever put in the shed. The weather has not been the most favourable for curing but if the crop escapes pole sweat Tho cured Leaf will be the finest Ever produced in this Section. The Massachusetts new Hampshire and Vermont crop is almost wholly the domesticated Havana variety. Connecticut s crop is very largely Havana except in the famous Connecticut Broad Leaf Section of the windsors East Hartford and Glastonbury. The Havana will average nearly 300 pounds per acre More than last year or from 1400 pounds to one ton per acre. Seed Leaf will go 1600 to 2200 pounds per acre or nearly 400 pounds better than last year. The 1891 crop promises to aggregate 167 cases in new Hampshire Ermont 242 Massachusetts 8653, and Connecticut 21,-921, against a production last year respectively of 166, 169, 6373 and 17,462 cases. The prospective total for new England is thus 30,976 cases this Vear against 23,960 cases last year and 23,654. Cases in 1889. Summarizing the crop for the entire United states the Homestead finds an area this year of 91,967 acres against 83.760 acres last year and 79,522 acres As shown by the census of 1889. The total new crop will aggregate 229,795 cases against 195,000 cases last year and 173,000 cases in the previous year. The Market for Tho new crop its already excited and fully 15 per cent of the product in the Connecticut and Housatonic valleys has been contracted for at prices ranging from 14 to 30 cents per Pound for cured Leaf to be delivered in Merchantable condition. The average Price thus far paid Iii these valleys for the 1891 drop is i8v3 cents per Pound while the average Price received for last years crop was 13vs cents and of the 1888 crop 11% cents. If the Quality of the new crop is not injured in curing the Homestead believes the growers of the Connecticut and Housatonic valleys will get #2,860.000 to #8,000,-000 for it. Last years crop brought to it in a Little under sl.600.000, while Only ,400,-00c was paid for the 1889 crop. John Ingalls the crop expert Bas been throughout North Dakota before an i since the Frost.

Congratulate Tho president upon the fact that under his auspices a Long struggle to secure this right has successfully ended a or. Phelps managed the negotiations with great skill but at the last moment after the German government had fully decided to have the decree signed on sept. I it looked As if there would lie another delay by the hesitation of some of Tho Petty states. Prussia Bavaria and Saxony were ready to agree to Tho removal of the embargo but two of the Small principalities hesitated and threatened to delay All of or. Phelps work. Finally these two principalities were brought into line and Tho decree As signed admits american pork products into every part of Germany. Secretary Rusk thursday received official intelligence that the pm Nan government had raised Tho prohibition on american pork and that the inspected portion of the product bearing the certificate of the department of agriculture would lie admitted in the German Empire. T he German government also has made some valuable concessions to this country in the matter of the reduction of duties on our cereals the sumo schedules being accorded to american cereals As to those of Russia and other countries. Great news for the South reign of Prosperity reported in the Way of wheat and Cotton. Baltimore md., sept. 4.-Tho manufacturing record of this week publishes special letters from leading hankers in All parts of the South As to the financial condition and prospects of general business and fanning interests. These reports show that immediately after Tho Baring failure Southern merchants and Bankers at once began to curtail All their operations and to make preparations for a Long period of monetary Stringency if it should come. The effect of this has been the reduction of indebtedness and Tho placing of ail business and banking interests on a solid financial basis. It also resulted in the borrowing of less Advance Money by Cotton planters than for Many years and hence the present crop has less indebtedness against St than the crops of former years. In All parts of the South Farmers Are reported to be less in debt than for years Manv reports saying that their indebtedness is smaller than at any time since the War. It is estimated that the Grain crops of the South this year will aggregate nearly 100,-000,000 bushels More than in 1890, and this added to the Largo yields of fruit and vegetables will keep at Home at least #75,-000,000 that last year went North Aud West for foodstuffs. A period of great activity in Solia substantial development is universally predicted. Wheat sliding in. Most of the Dakota Farmers will let it go at once. Duluth Minn. Sept. in store Here now is Only 223,000 bushels but the new wheat has begun to pour in at the rate of 60 to 76 cars a Day and advices from the country show that shipments by Farmers from now on will be Large. Talks with Farmers who Are Here indicate that few of the Dakota Farmers will try to hold their wheat but that nearly All will put it on the Market at once. A few of the larger Farmers will sell part and hold what they can in elevators. The Dakota elevators will not store wheat for Farmers on account of the new Dakota Law and they will thus be compelled to sell. A. J. Sawyer the head of the North Dakota elevator company and the Duluth elevator company says that his company would handle about 16,000,000 bushels Bere and he estimated the total receipts of Duluth for the crop year at 50,000,000 bushels.

New York Scot. 4.�?in conversation with a reporter today gov. Campbell of Ohio who arrived in town last night said a my sole object in coming East is for Tho purpose of going to the Seaside to rid Ray of a severe attack of malaria which has affected my entire system. A until i started on this trip i was confined to my room for three weeks and have thus far been unable to take my part in the Campaign. I w ill however open my canvass on the 17th of this month. A the leading feature of Tho Campaign is Tho Tariff. The people of Ohio Are holding or. Mckinley responsible for his Bill and the sentiment of tiie state is decidedly against it. To would be glad to Dodge the Issue and is using the question of free coinage with a great Deal of skill in order to obscure the real Issue and draw away the fire from the measure of which to is the father. A the Tariff has had the effect of raising prices in some instances and is generally regarded As an oppressive measure. Quot the fact that crops Are Good and that the Farmers will get Good prices for them which Bas been heralded by the Republican press As favourable to Republican Success is an argument that will be used against them this year. For several years the Ohio Farmers have been in the Depths of despondency their crops have tailed and prices were poor. A this years crops Are abundant and prices Good but they Aro Well aware that this Lias not been brought about by the Tariff but by the general failure of crops in Europe. A the Home Market has not been a Factor in the increase of prices and it is so apparent that the Farmers can easily see through it. A tile democracy is making an aggressive fight in Ohio this year Aud the Outlook is very political ploughing match. Republican candidate for governor challenges his opponent. Baltimore md., sept 4.�?col. Van Nort the Republican nominee for governor is Bent on having lots of fun out of his Campaign. He is a Rich old Farmer and is willing to pay for his political experience. He was in Baltimore yesterday at the meeting of the Republican state committee and astonished the leaders of Bis party by the novel announcement that he was going to Challenge Frank Brown the democratic nominee for governor to a ploughing contest of a 10-acre Field to show to the Farmers of Maryland which of the two candidates from a practical agricultural standpoint is entitled to their support. Or. Brown while a gentleman Farmer can also handle a plough but Farmer Van Nort says be has a lounged a 10-acre Field every summer just to keep his hand in and he is sure he can beat the democratic Farmer at the plough if not at the polls. Brown has not yet returned from Europe but when he does next week the Challenge will be waiting for him. Keystone democracy. Principles on which the state Campaign will by fought. The Pennsylvania state democratic convention thursday nominated Robert e. Wright of Allentown for auditor general Aud a. L. Tilden of Erie for state treasurer. A Resolution was passed expressing sincere regret at the illness of Hon. William l. Scott speeches wore made by messes. Wright and Tilden and the convention adjourned. Promptly at 10.30 of clock chairman Kerr of the state committee called the convention to order. H. Willis Bland of Reading was made temporary chairman. Or. Bland made a Brief address in which among other things he said a a the Campaign will be fought on local issues not on National. Nobody doubts that the people of Pennsylvania love the teachings of their own Prophet Grover Cleveland. His defeat n the last Campaign has been More glorious to him than any Victory would have been for no thinking Man can help feeling that Tho lessons taught in the democratic victories All Over the country since his defeat Are tributes to the grandeur of Grover Cleveland and the principles he so nobly represents. In gov. Robert e. Pattison we have a fitting representative of those Beautiful those Noble those eternal ideas of political Faith enunciated by the great Thomas the platform adopted Renews pledges of Devotion to the principles of the party in the country at Large. It continues Weare As we always have been. In favor of honest and economical administration of Public affairs of limiting expenses and reducing taxation to meet Tho actual necessities of government of a sound and stable currency based on Gold and Silver coined and circulated in such proportions As will keep them on a parity of a Reform and a revision of the Tariff of Liberal hut just pension Laws. And of All Well considered legislation tending to increase the rewards and lighten the burdens of labor. We realize and affirm that the state election of 1891 in Pennsylvania involves no Issue of Federal politics we Appeal to honest and patriotic citizens regardless of past party affiliations to unite in vindicating the Honor of this Commonwealth and redeeming the fiscal and auditing depart ment Sof government from official abuses and corrupt practices. These abuses and corruptions As involved in the Bardsley steal and other corruptions Are noted. We arraign and condemn Tho Republican legislature for having refused to enforce the Constitution by appropriate legislation Tor having failed to pass honest and equitable apportionment Bills As required by the Constitution for having ignored the demands of labor for Relief by Law for having denied the righteous popular demand for such Laws As would distribute the burdens of Public taxation equally upon All classes of property and for having refused to Reform Long existing abuses in the mercantile appraisement Laws As recommended by the democratic executive of 1885. Continuing the platform says we denounce the corrupt and shameless domination of senator Matthew s. Quay in Tho politics of the state and arraign and condemn the Republican party Tor its Servile acquiescence in the leadership of a Man who has utterly failed to defend himself from grave charges against his official conduct and political record. We heartily endorse the Wise statesmanlike and patriotic administration of gov. Pattison we applaud and approve his fearless vetoes of partisan vicious and ill considered legislation his recommendation of salutary taws his rigorous investigation and wholesale correction of Public abuses and his determination to enforce the Constitution punish offenders and secure Public Reform Quot we approve the largest measure of ballot Reform and believe the whole advantages of the australian ballot system should be secured to the electors of Pennsylvania. The ballot Hill enacted by the last general Assembly was a step in the right direction but it needs to be supplemented by measures to protect the secrecy of the ballot and to secure Reform in registration. To this end and for these purposes Only we favor the assembling of a constitutional convention. Elkins on his mind. Presents thankfully received. He is a very discreet Man who never says either too much or too Little. At a business meeting of a Backwoods society the chairman announced a brother Skinner submits his resignation As a member of this society. What action shall be taken upon it a a i move sir a said one of the parliamentarians present a that the resignation be accepted and that a vote of thanks be tendered to brother president would like to have him in his Cabinet but Washington sept. 3.�?a member of tile Cabinet is responsible for the statement that the president is seriously considering the name of Stephen ii. Elkins in connection with the War department As successor to Secretary Proctor when he lays Down the portfolio to Don the senatorial Toga. The president has a Good Deal of affection for Elkins and even More for his rather in Law cd senator Davis of West Virginia and would very much like to have Elkins in the Cabinet. But he is a Little bit afraid that the putting of Elkins in the War department will subject him to a Good Deal of criticism. As there is a suspicion in the minds of a Good Many people that or. Elkins schemes will not always Bear the full Light of publicity. Elkins is and always has been a warm adherent of blame but if be should go into Tho Cabinet lie would have to use alibis influence in behalf of Harrison and perhaps that is one reason Why the president is anxious to gain his support for Elkins is pretty Well up in practical polities. It is believed that or. Elkins would accept the War department portfolio. Says Blaine will run. Joe Manley authorized to put Forward his Friend. Washington sept. 6.�?the Gazette gives prominence to Tho following a prominent Maine politician who returned last week from his summer Outing is authority for the statement made to Tho Gazette that Secretary Blaine has consented to be a candidate for the presidency should he to Tho unquestioned Choice of Trio Republican convention.

Blaine s health a Quot i visited him after Tho Portland conference at bar Harbor and found him to be in Good spirits and in his old time health. Ills mind was Clear his ooh Bright and interest in Public affairs As keen As Ever. Quot All that he needed was rest and that he has had at bar Harbor. Quot or. Blaine will he nominated. Mark my prediction. Not even president Harrison with All the newer of the officeholders at his Back. Could wrest Tho nomination from him were to so disposed. There will be but one name before the convention the magical name of Blaine and lie will be elected too. Whether the democrats run against him the former competitor Grover Cleveland or an entirely new chandlery a Tongue. If it keeps going it May ruin his party in new Hampshire. Washington sept. 6. A prominent new Hampshire Republican who was hero a Day or two ago in talking about the guerilla warfare which senator Chandler is waging on senator Gallinger through the columns of his newspapers said that nobody in the state could understand what made Chandler keep the tight up. Quot i do not know a he continued a a single influential Republican in the state who is with Chan Lerin his present crusade. A Gallinger has the support of not Only Tho managing politicians but the rank and tile of the party. To is extremely popular with All classes w Hile on the other hand Chandler has never made himself very Well liked and now that to is trying to beat or. Gal Lingor he is even less popular than he was. A these attacks on Gallinger have done him no harm. On the contrary they have won him Tho support and sympathy of men who do not believe in Chandler s Mode of warfare and who Are afraid if this factional fight is kept up it will Only result in destroying the Republican party in new Hampshire. T Quot in fact it is openly said that Chandler intends to destroy ii possible the Republican party in that state and build up on its ruins an anti Railroad anti consolidation anti Trust anti everything else party. Quot just what to intends to accomplish if he succeeds with his new party it is difficult to say but the prevailing belief is that or. Chandler sees that his Power in Republican politics has vanished and that his Only Hope to remain in Public life in the future is by affiliating himself with some new party. Quot i do not believe that be will succeed in his new party scheme but i do foresee the danger it has for us and i am Frank enough to say that unless Chandler is pretty Well squelched he May succeed in turning now Hampshire Over to the democrats. Quot in All of chandlery a attacks on Gallinger he has not hesitated to abuse Frank Jones and Charles a. Sinclair because of their rum and Beer business ushe Callist. So virulent is he in this respect that he is making a Good Many people believe that he is interested in the cause of Temperance. A a it May be a startling and unpleasant Surprise to some of these Good people to know that chandlery a name is on the application of both Normandie and Chamberlin a hotels or. Chandler being a property owner in the same Block with these Plai t a and his assent being required by District Laws before the License could be granted. At both of these hotels liquor is openly and freely sold and at Chamberlin Sas every one knows there is More Champagne Ami other intoxicants sold than in any other place in the City of Washington. A senator Chandler s views on Temperance in Washington Are hardly consistent with his views in new note col. Van Nort surprised some Republican leaders at a private conference held in Baltimore md., inst thursday by declaring that he would not continue the gubernatorial candidate if Charles t. Westcott. Proposed chairman of the state committee was allowed to manage Tho Campaign. Van Nort telegraphed that if Wescott accepted the chairmanship the party would have to find another candidate for governor. Van Nort wanted sex congressman Mccomas for Tho place. James r. Garfield the second son of the late president was a candidate last week for the Republican senatorial nomination in the District composed of Lake Ashtabula Beauga Portage and Summit counties lie is an avowed supporter of John Sherman for re election to the Senate. Opposed to Young Garfield was e. L. Lampson of Ashtabula county who was Foraker a candidate for lieutenant governor in 1889. Lampson refused to pledge himself on the United states senator ship. In the convention Lampson received 105 votes and Garfield 65. Young Garfield accepted his defeat gracefully and made a speech promising Hearty support to the nominee.

Forbes professor of Tho University of Canton. St. Lawrence county attorney general s. E. Crosser of Buffalo. The platform was of much Tho usual pattern. A Washington despatch says that the democrats Promise a series of investigations by the next House of representatives similar to that which characterized the House in 1876. The Long talked of Republican newspaper Iii Providence k. I., is about to materialize and two weeks from now will see it for Sale on the streets. It is to be called the Providence news and is to be a Penny evening paper. Tho editor is to be John l. Heaton who for some time has been attached to the editorial staff of the Brooklyn times. Forty live delegates representing the Farmers leagues local brunches of the citizens Alliance trades unions Anil knights of labor met at Rutland wednesday in response to a Call issued by the Vermont citizens Alliance. It wits decided not to take up National issues but to confine the work to local and state Reform. The platform demands that state and county revenues shall be limited to tile actual necessary expenses of government that corporations shall be compelled to pay taxes to town county and state on All possessions in the same manner As individuals that a separate agricultural College be established that affairs of Public institutions be administered in a More economical manner. It also demands the abolishment of Tho Railroad commission the reduction of salaries of All Tho state officers reduction of the expenses of the militia at least one half and demands weekly payments by corporations.

Atter an introductory discussion of Tho general evil of intemperance and a denial of the Oft quoted Creed of Many that it is the duty of each Man to look after himself and that we Are not our neighbors keeper the senator said Quot no one in this audience will differ with the relative to the evils of this moloch monster intemperance unless perhaps it to Tho runic Llor and i ask is he entitled to an opinion is his opinion Worth anything a Quot my deliberate judgment is and i measure my wants that there is no worse Man to he found than the rum seller and. So far from his opinion being Worth anything in this question As to whether liquor shall to sold freely Over the bar to whosoever wishes to Purchase i say that if every Rutn seller Iii the country were in jail today Tho country would be ten thousand times better off than it now to plead the cause of the devotees of Tom Ranee.

They roasted the pulp into food and fermented the juice into a Pul que a the latter has been improved by modern civilization into the Strong but not repulsive drink called Mescal. The Maguey Plant matures in seven years cabbage headed in shape and with prickly guards. It weighs from 25 to 50pounds. The various Lavers As roasted by the natives Are nutritious Aud purgative. The pulp is tormented in a Rawhide vat. The City of Mexico drinks 250,000 pints of Pul que daily or a pint per capita which 1 incubators 16 feet High built by australian Jungle fowl. When the first White Man visited Australia they Hoard curious tales about Birds that grew from the ground like plants. This was naturally taken As an exaggerated Story related by superstitious and ignorant natives but finally when travelling through the Bush an intelligent White Man found a Large Mound w hich his native guard pronounced the Heap from which Birds were hatched. Tho traveller laughed heartily at the idea. Whereupon Tho native ran up the Side of the curious Mound anti after digging a few moments to the astonishment of the White Man produced several eggs and a Young Bird that though evidently just hatched was Lively Strong and vigorous. Further examination developed the fact that Tim Mound was Well supplied with eggs. All nicely packed away. The Mound was built by a feathered Mound builder tile Brush Turkey or Telle Galia Latham called by the natives the Whelan. Tho work it accomplishes in heaping up decayed vegetation is astonishing the Mounds in Many instances forming prominent features Iii the landscape. In general shape they Aro conical. The Hen upon the Summit scoops away a cavity of two feet or More and Iii this depression the eggs Are deposited in a Circle with the larger end upward. They Are carefully covered and allowed to Batell partly by the fermentation of the mass of vegetation and partly by Tho Sun being in reality incubators made by tile Birds and watched and guarded by them with the greatest care. The eggs Are often found in great quantities As Many As a Bushel being taken from a single Mound. This singular Structure shows Groat intelligence on the part of the Birds As in Tho very Centre is left a cylindrical Hole or depression Winch is in reality a ventilator moderating the heat or cold in the Mounds. The most remarkable of these Mound builders is the australian Jungle fowl Mega podium. The Mega Odius works in a similar manner to the Brush Turkey but accomplishes far greater results some of the heaps being not Jess than 16 feet in height or Over twice As High As a Man and 20 feet in diameter. They Are always placed under the branches of some Large tree which affords generous Shade. The nest is added to every year and often grows to an enormous size being made up of grass twigs leaves and rubbish of All kinds. An old Mound has been observed 60 feet in diameter Aud was described and figured As an ancient Tomb. The eggs Are placed in Burrows or holes that Are often six or seven feet in length extending into Tho Mound at an Angle of 45�?T, the eggs being deposited part was Down the Birds covering up the Hole As they come made to order.

Cowboys and bulls pestered the scientists but the Bain came. C ranch Midland county tex., aug. 29.�? Gen. Jupiter Pluvus Dyrenforth has hied him to Washington and the rain which fell nearly every Day while to was Here has gone away too. Ile will come Hack to Texas in a week or two however says the new York Sun correspondent and then the aqueous fluid will Hump itself once More the ranch men and Farmers will sing joyous paeans the John rabbits will use their ears for umbrellas and the cowboys will strap their Quot slickers a Texas for rubber Coats to their saddles when they go to Tho festive Roundup. Great is the name of Dyrenforth in the Llano Estacada and when the Farmers throughout this Broad land realize that to can really turn on Tho heavenly faucet whenever and wherever he pleases they will forswear allegiance to the be whiskered in offer and cast a solid vote for the general. For however much correspondents who never came within 20 Miles of the scene of operations and there to such May figuratively try to throw cold water on Tho government rain making experiments Tho interesting fart remains that either Gen. Dyrenforth did literally pull cold water Down upon this patched country or else a series of the most remarkable coincidences Ever known occurred hero within the past three weeks. Whenever he ordered the dynamite and the rack Arock powder and the explosive balloons to to turned Loose upon a Clear sky there was certain to to a smart rainfall within 12 hours. This did not happen once or twice or thrice it happened nine or to times and in a country too wore showers of any kind Are exceedingly rare and where Good Rains Are almost unknown. When it is considered that Tho general had to travel an almost untrodden path and that he had to pick and foot his Way step by step often stopping to remove obstacles which threatened to wholly bar Bis Progress it is remarkable that to attained the desired goal in so Short a time. Badly constructed apparatus which had to lie repaired Many times on the Field inefficient Cowboy labor crowds of gawk. Lug exasperating sightseers from Midland who stepped on Tho balloons and invariably got in Tho Way Alkali water and hurtling stun which together placed nearly every member of Tho expedition on Tho sick list at various times a series of extraordinary heavy gales w hich swept Over Tho level Prairie almost incessantly and snapped balloon cables As though Lioy were Cotton twine these and Many other smaller matters which at Tho time were equally discouraging were daily encountered and so often overcome. Such minor incidents As a Cowboy mistaking the anemometer erected on the Fem of the ranch House for a revolving target and practising with his six shooter at it or the ringing of Tho breakfast Bell at 3.45 a. Rn., and t to pouring of cold water on the sleepy scientists by Tho Light hearted cowboys to a Wake Mem up for Chuck a were too trivial to cause More than passing notice. Upon one occasion a Cowboy who gloried in Tim fact that he was Horn in Texas and Hail never been further East than the Trinity River was sent from the place where the balloons were being filled to the ranch House half a mile away to bring some Quot Wash bottles used in making Tho oxygen. A returned in a remarkably Short space of time. To came at a full Gallop dragging the bottles in a sack at Tho end of his Lariat and whooping like a Comanche Indian. Tho fact that All the bottles were broken did not in the least disturb that cowboys equanimity. Gen. Dyrenforth had 40 10-foot, balloons made to contain about 600 cubic feet of 28 12-foot balloons to contain about 1000 cubic feet of and Tiree Large balloons to be used for ascension to make meteorological observations. He also procured several bolts of Roo Cambric and enough Sticks and twin to make and Fly several Hundred Largo kites. A Groat Quantity nearly a Carload of Rac Arock powder giant powder and other powerful explosives was procured and shinned to Midland. Tho object As every one knows who has looked into the subject at ail was to keen up a series of explosions in the air and 011 the ground for several hours or even for a Day and then wait for the rain to come. The balloons were to he tilled with two parts of Hydrogen and one part of oxygen and wore to to exploded when High in the air by Means of electrical explorers connected by wire to dynamos on Tho ground. Rac Arock powder and dynamite were to be tied to the tails of kites and exploded in Tho same Way and meantime there was to to a series of big explosions covering an area of a mile or two on the ground. Brof. Myers who in addition to being a balloonist is a Man of scientific attain ments was to go up in one of Tho Large balloons and with Tho Aid of delicate instruments determine at what height the current containing the greatest amount of moisture existed. The balloons wore to to exploded in this current. Such was the programme Laid out land it m Ould doubtless have been followed to Tho letter if it had been physically possible to do it. But what was not taken into consideration and what it was impossible to know anything about in Advance was Tho fact that Day after Day a most extraordinary Gale Mould Spring up and Corno careering Over the Prairie to toss Tho balloons about at their moorings and boat their delicate fabric against Tho dry hard stubble which does duty Here As grass or else to tear them Loose and sent them flying off into the air out of sight. Day after Day did prof. Myers get up before Dawn to the stirring reveille blown on a Cornet by Gen. Dyrenforth hastily so Al i oms a cup of Coffee a Bot biscuit and a bit of Bacon Hie himself to his oxygen and Hydrogen generating machines and strive with might and main to fill Tho balloons with the proper proportions of Tho two gases. And Day after Day that howling wind would come up and play havoc with the balloons or else the oxygen making apparatus would get out of order and Many valuable hours would be consumed in repairing it. The oxygen Generator was on a larger scale than any Ever made before. It consisted of a Long gasoline stove surmounted by a Sheet Iron Hood in which were holes to hold Tho a a cartridges or tubes containing chlorate of Potash and Black oxide of manganese. This combination of chemicals when exposed to a fierce heat throws off Tho oxygen which is purified by being passed through Wash bottles containing a weak solution of Lime. The Lime also removes the chlorine which is dangerously explosive. But the stove although built upon an admirable plan w As faulty in its construction. It would become heated to the danger Point and have to be put out and cooled. Tho cartridges would blow out at the Kula and have to to replaced or something else would happen which would cause delay. The Hydrogen generators worked smoothly and quickly and if the oxygen could have been made Faut enough As it undoubtedly can be with better constructed apparatus in the future All would have been Well and the balloons could have been exploded at intervals of 20 minutes which it m As calculated would be ample when reinforced by the ground explosions and the kites. As it was a Good Many balloons m Ere sent up and exploded in spite of the difficulties and that they did influence the atmosphere and help to cause the rainfalls is More than probable. The kites were not very successful either. The heavy gales beating upon them were too much for the necessarily Light Sticks Aud one after the other they Rose and broke and went diving and twisting to the ground. To the consternation of the Jack rabbits and the open mouthed wonder of the Chaparral Cocks. While some of the party were working at the balloons and some at the kites others were scattered Here and there engaged in exploding Many heavy charges of Rac Arock Dowder and dynamite on the ground and at times it sounded very like a real i Battle except that there was no rattle of Small arms or shouting or shrieking or tramping of heavy bellies of men and horse. It was a Battle with the horrors and the dash and the excitement left out. And after the Battle Tho weary workers or fighters would straggle Back to the ranch House and there thanks to the hospitality of or. Raunell would sleep in comfortable Beds until a Sharp crash overhead would give them warning that the Aerial forces which they had been bombarding All the evening had in timbered their batteries and were getting them into action. Then would come Flash after Flash of vivid lightning which cast a White Glare upon the Prairies for Miles around crash Arter crash of Thunder which made the explosions made by Man seem puny and insignificant and then the a in. How it would pour Down upon the roof and beat the windows and drive in at the open doorways As if in a frenzy of rage to get at the creatures who had disturbed it up aloft in the Beautiful sky and brought it to Earth to serve their ends. No wonder that Gen Dyrenforth. The Arch rain maker Rose As soon As Tho first faint lighting in Tho far East showed that Day was nigh and blew shrill blasts of Victory upon his Silver Bugle no wonder the we eary scientists who had been ridiculed and made sport of by fun Loving Parag Raphers until they dreaded the fighter a newspaper smiled at each other in a drowsy self satisfied Way. And to the music of the rain and the roof turned Over for another Nap they had been told by Congress to get out into the arid wilderness and make rain and Thoy had done it. The experiments will be continued in Elpaso either by Gen. Dyrenforth in person or if he is detained in Washington by or. Ellis who is fully competent to conduct them successfully. He has made an exhaustive study of the subject and is a practical Man As Well As a scientific one some what rare combination. The experiments in Elpaso will be on a grander scale than any yet attempted and several new devices for causing explosions High in Tim air which have been invented by or Ellis will housed. The mayor has promised every facility for the prosecution of the work and great efforts will be made to have the really first Public demonstration of the rainmakers Powers a tremendous Success. Many other towns in Texas Kansas and the Dakotas live invited the rain makers to come and obscure Tho face or the Sun for a while but owing to the smallness of this years appropriations it is doubtful if it will be possible to go elsewhere after Tho Elpaso demonstration. Dynamite and powder and balloons and scientists arc expensive luxuries and #9000 does no to go very far in procuring them. The letters from various towns and farming communities offer All sorts of inducements for the rain makers to come to them. One pledges the nomination for the presidency to Hon. Dyrenforth another promises a Quot Barbecue dinner and a Royal Welcome a a third extends assurances of Quot unmeasured hospitality and every facility for Tho work As Well As Hie distinguished consideration of your made from Onn it illegally issued question of value of Silver Bullion episode in the cosiness experiences of Russell Harrison. A train of Pullman cars built from a giant California Redwood. Chicago new the Tulare people Are going to exhibit one of the results of Tim California climate in an altogether original Way. I Here is a tree in that county which is a fair specimen of what Tho Redwood can to if it grows enough. It stands in a Gorge deep enough to to awful and its Topmost boughs where the Cones Aro thickest Are on a level with the highest rocks on the sides of the Ravine. It is not Cut yet so the measurements so far taken May be at fault a bit one Way or the other but they Are near enough the truth to make Safe betting. The tree is 390 foot High of feet from the butt to Tho first Brunch and 26 feet through at the very base. A log of clean smooth Nood that will Meas ietto feet in length and average 20 feet in diameter can easily lie Cut out of it. That is what the Tulare people propose to do and having the log they will utilize it to the Benefit of the worlds fair and the glory of Tulare. The tree grou s Well up towards the headwaters of the Kasean River and the great log will have to be carried or moved in some Way to the Railroad at Visalia ii distance of nearly of Miles. It is a stupendous undertaking but the people of that country do not Stop at trifles. In All likelihood the trunk will be cutin sections Lengthwise and then the sections will he nut on trucks Ana taken Over Tho log Road. teams will do the hauling probably a score of Span to the Section. In Many places a Road will have to be Cut through and built up. Crooks and turns and precipitous slants will have to be avoided and often when Tho Road is up Hill it will require the combined strength of All tile oxen to haul a Section of the tree in the Steep. When finally the giant of the Tulare Woods is where it can he moved on Railroad oars it will live Cost hundreds and thousands of dollars and six months will have passed from Tho time men with axes started to fell it. Then the import ant work will begin. The log will be made whole by the putting a it Gettie Rof the sections. Expert woodsmen will out it across in the Middle making two lengths each 45 feet Long. Each of these lengths m ill then be Hen into Tho shape of Ordinary railway passenger coaches. Tho rough hark of the tree will be the roof of the ear and on the sides and ends the natural Wood will be left unpolished. The inside will be hollowed out windows and doors put in and Tho Interior finished after the fashion of Pullman ears. One will be a Buffet and dining car with apartments for Bath Barber shop and Kitchen. The other will be a Sleeper with an observation room. Platforms will be put at the ends and Ordinary trucks underneath and to prevent the transformed tree from falling to nieces under any circumstances heavy bands of Iron will be nut around the body of the car. More tender than the geese. Soft hearted Farmer says in death they should not be divided. Squire h was a gentleman of the old school in Newburyport. He wore a ruffled bosom shirt of immaculate whiteness and fed on the fat of the land. One Day. On his Way to his office to met Farmer Brown with two Nice fat geese. On inspection he told the Farmer he would take one of them. But the Farmer said he must sell both or neither. Tho Squire remarked that no private table wanted a pair of geese. But the Farmer was finn. And declined to sell one the Squire must take both or none. Tonally the Squire paid him for the pair and the next Day came Home to dinner his Mouth watering for a taste of the Nice fat Goose. The carving knife was sharpened and Tho dissection commenced. He tried to sever a Wing a leg to get a slice from the breast but alas it was so Tough he could make no impression upon it. And it was removed from the table to the great disappointment of the family. Several Days after meeting Farmer Brown the Squire politely asked him Why he was not satisfied m Ith Selling him one of the geese and not imposing both upon him Quot because Squire a the Farmer replied Quot to my certain knowledge them geese have been together for 25 years and i Hadnot the heart to separate harpers Magazine. _ Parrot and Hawk in Battle. San Francisco examiner the Young quails worst enemies Are the Hawks. Where they ail come from and How they live when the Quail Are big enough to keep out of the Way is one of the mysteries. At other seasons a Hawk in the Park is a rarity. Just now there Are lots of them. There is one Hawk out there whose Quail killing Days Are Over. His downfall was accomplished by the big red and Green Parrot that lives around in the Trees near the Casino. Capt. Thompson saw the Hawk swoop Down into the Brush when he was quite a distance off. Pretty soon there my As the most extraordinary Racket in the scrub Oak. The Parrot bad the Hawks neck in its claws Aud was driving away with his Hook Bill at the Hawks head. The Hawk was willing enough to quit but . They flew up and Down first one on top and then the other it was not a Long Light. The Hawk beat his adversary with his wings and even got his talons and beak to work but the red and Green Bird was too big and Strong for him and would not release his grip a moment. Before the people got very near the Hawk quit fighting the Parrot had apparently sunk his talons through the Hawks neck and that is probably the reason they did not separate. When Tho Hawk cot quiet the Parrot managed to disengage himself Aud new up into a tree where be remained scolding and straightening his feathers. He was pretty badly scratched up and one of his eyes seemed to be gone but he had killed the Hawk. Inquiry being made by comptroller Lacey into the matter. New York sept. 4.�?"president Harrison a said a Wall St. Man yesterday Quot should Send his son Russell abroad on a protracted the Wall St. Man made this remark upon hearing of another episode in the career of Young or Harrison which has been brought out by the comment upon his recent demand on the government that the Revenue Cutter Grant be placed at his disposal in the recital of the circumstances attending this episode speculators in Silver Bullion certificates the dealings in which were so extensive while Tho Silver question was before Congress last Winter will learn something which will be of vast Inte Nast to them. Through an unsuccessful attempt by Russell b. Harrison to borrow Money from ten. Louis Fitzgerald president of Tho mercantile Trust company they will learn that an official of the Treasury department has Lieen engaged for some time in an inquiry into the legality of these certificates which Are issued by Hie Western National Bank. There is a Strong probability that the result will be favourable to the certificates and therefore to the Bank. They were listed on the Stock Exchange and were dealt Iii heavily last Winter when it w As expected that Congress would pass an unlimited coinage Law. They were in great demand. Many statesmen invested in them. Comptroller of the currency Lacey has been in this City for the last three or four Days. The purpose of his visit was a mystery. The mystery i solved now. And to or. Russell Harrison is due the credit of its solution. That energetic and enterprising Young gentleman called on Gen. Fitzgerald some time ago. The general in addition to being president of the mercantile Trust company is a director in the Western National Bank. Or. Harrison desired to negotiate a loan. He tendered As collateral certain Western securities. Gen. Fitzgerald examined the collateral did not Quito approve of it and declined to make the loan which shows that Prince Russell knew what it was to be denied before he tackled the government. Or. Harrison showed signs of annoyance when lie left Gen. Fitzgerald. It Isnit pleasant to try to borrow Money Ami fail. Especially is it unpleasant if you happen to be tile son of the president to whom Young or. Harrison appears to think All persons should defer. Two Days later he again called on Gen. Fitzgerald lie entered the offices of the mercantile Trust company hurriedly and was shown into the presidents room. A general a he said a you Aro a director of the Western National Bank Aren t you a replied Tho general. Quot Well sir a said or Harrison a a done to you know that Hank is issuing Silver Bullion certificates contrary to Law a a no i done to answered Gen. Fitzgerald Quot and anyway in a not the Estem National Bank i m Only a director Quot wont on the Young gentleman a i want to Tell you general that it would not be permitted if attention wore called to now the question is Why did he impart this information to Gen. Fit a raid to had no concern in the affairs of the Western National. He is said to have then renewed the request for the lean. Again unsuccessfully. It was Learned yesterday that Tho question of the legality of the c Retif fates had been before comptroller i Ney since last february. He is now in this City on the matter having come to consult Quot assistant treasurer Ellis la. Roberts and others. He has also it is said been the conference with president Bray ton Ives of tile Western National Bank at various times. It appears that when Tho fact that the Western National Bank was issuing these certificates was called to his attention or. Lacey was disposed to take the View rime under the National Hanking act die Bank bad no authority to guarantee their payment because the Bullion against which they were issued was deposited in the vaults of the mercantile Sale i Deposit company of which or. Lyman Rhoades is tile president. The National banking act prohibits and National Hank from guaranteeing the obligations of any other institution or individual and it was held that in issuing certificates against Bullion deposited with another corporation the Western National w As violating this provision. If this conclusion were readied the consequences would to most serious. Thousands of Tho eerie Vicatos have been bought and paid Tor. The w Estern National began to Issue them Al amt three years ago. They Rose in value from Par and thereabouts to 122. And those who sold them then made Money. But there were a number a Lio held on and finally disposed of them for a Good Deal loss than Cost. Homo of Tho statesmen were in the latter class. The Price yesterday m As jim1 a. The answer of the Western National was that the Bullion was. In reality in its Possession in that it bad a clerk stationed in the Safe Deposit vaults which Are under the Bank to witness the receipt of the Bullion and its Deposit in a vault the key of which m As held by the Hank. This it m As declared amounted practically to storing the Bullion in its own vaults. For affording the use of its vault the Safe Deposit company receives one half of the profits from the Issue of the certificates. Practically All the visible Supply of Silver is store there and is covered by the certificates. The amount thereat present is about 5,000.000 ounces. Comptroller Lacey is now considering the Bank s reply and it is expected that a decision will soon be announced. I called at Gen. Fitzgerald s House 253 Lexington av., last night and a As told that Tho general and his family were at sea Bright. It will be remembered that Daniel Manning sex Secretary of the Treasury was the first president of the Western National la will also be recalled that during the presidential Campaign of 1888 the Republican Campaign orators were very much concerned because the Bank had a number of million dollars of government Money on Deposit. These Republican orators said that this was a piece of favouritism of the Cleveland administration. With the Advent of the Harrison administration and especially since the Advent of Secretary Foster most of the government deposits have been withdrawn from the Western National. Strictly local ram. New York Sun an elderly woman entered an opticians store on Broadway the other Day to make some purchases and stopped to examine a curious looking card which stood on a Glass Case. It was a picture of a Ballet dancer wearing a Gauzy Pink skirt. She turned to a clerk behind the counter and asked Quot what do you Call this thing a a that blandly replied the clerk. A is a French barometer. The skirt of the Ballet girl is saturated with a chemical mixture. In fair weather it is Blue. When the weather changes and it is about to ram it becomes Violet.
