The tracks of tornadoes are never more
than I few hundred j arils wide and their
forces tiro usually exhausted by the time they
have travelled I course of forty or fifty miles
although some have been traced by their
linos of devastation IHO miles Their rotary
motion which Is greatest toward tho centre
sometimes reaches tho enormous rate of ODD I
miles an hour while their forward movement
aluuiit from mmlhurtt ti > malluaul ordinarily
does not exceed forty or fifty miles
There Is I n curious relationship between the tor
nado and tho general storm centre the tornado

In roaming over the northern part of Manhattan
Island and locating the sites of tho British regi
mental camps during thu War of Independence
found on ono of his excursions met fall when
ho was hunting for mushrooms a snake
that ho took for a copperhead The snake
had been killed by a previous passerby but
Mr Calver burprlxed to flnd such a on

The scientist doubted Its being a copperhead
and was skeptical as to the presence of that va
riety of serpent In the viclnlt but he yvertho
less spent an hour with Mr Calver learchlni
for another snake They found none Mr Cal
ver however believed that there must be more
where tho one came from and decided to mak
rearch for them Yesterday with a country boy
who la visiting htm he set out for tho place of
the serpent and began a closelhunt for more of
