8 la gel and bis venerable spouse, Jane
Blagel, did. They walked from EvansvlUe,
Ind., to this ilty, arriving here footsore
and weary Thursday evening.
The aged couple, the husband being a
veteran of the late rebellion and the Mex
ican war, were shown to the First pre
cinct police station on Twelfth street,
where everything -was done to make them
comfortable for the night. Having fin

Ihursday evening they met Lieut.

i'uc old man's feet were terribly swollen
from bis long walk from Iloosierdoni to the
Capital, while his wife said bcrs were
filled with blisters. They carried their
effects in an old-fashioned carpet-sack.
Mrs. Pennlflll provided them with a alee,
hot dinner, as they had not eaten any
thing for twenty-four hours.
TKATED FOR THE POLICE.
After dinner Mr. and Mrs. Blagel were
given one of the upper witness rooms in
which they passed the night; also a tub
full ot hot salt water with which to bathe
their swollen feet' and hands. Before re
tiring Mn. I'cnnifiU said the aged veteran
went down upon bis knees in earnest

mankind in general, but fur Matron Pennl

After prayer man and wife, who havo
lived over two score jears together, united
their weak and trembling voices in that
touching Christian song which commences:
"I will sing you a song of that beautiful
The far-away home of the soul."
In tho morning Blngel told his Inter
esting story to Matron Pennirill and
Policeman Hodges. With bis wire he was
engaged in trucking in a small way on a
few acres of ground they had rented
near EvansvlUe, Ind. He was an appli
cant for a pension, and one day he received
a communication from the Pension Office

Being without means', Blagel sold out
his effects, which brought barely money
enough to pay bis honest debts, much less
purchaso railroad tickets for the 000
miles' Journey for himself arid wife.
They therefore determined to tramp to
the Capital, and started out. On their
way herethcy decided lo stop at a village
near Harrlsburg, Pa., Veteran Elagel's
native place, where bis mother, father,
and relatives resided when he last heard
NONE RECOGNIZED HIM.
After weeks of weary tramping the village
was reached, but like Rip Van Winkle he
found all of his kinsfolks dead while no one
in tho p!accrecognlzcd him. He had not
been there, nor had he seen his parents
since the breaking out of the war when he
marched away with a Pennsylvania regi
ment to serve five years and battle for bis
country. Turning their faces sorrowfully
to the Eouth they continued on their
Journcy to Washington.
On their way they were treated with every
consideration by the farmers, who fur
nished them with food and shelter. Only
onco were they maltreated and that was
iu a settlement of Italian laborers on the
border between Pennsylvania and Mary
land. These foreigners stoned the aged
couple and drove them from the town with
imprecations and curses.

and What.to Expect.
The policy ot the Department of Agrl
culture Is lo place, before the peopleof the
United Slates as. much useful scientific in
formation as Is possible. This knowledge
really belongs to the people. Inasmuch as
they sustain the ijeccuary-expense ot col
lecting tbe observations upon which the
scientists make tAelr' investigations,
When valuable Jesuits are acquired 11 is
proper that the tnsttlbutlon ot the same,
In as simple Ianguagejas is consistent with
tbe subject, be- made one ot the primary
duties of the scrvfts.
The Assistant Bef refary of the Department
ot Agriculture, Dr. Charles W. Oabney, Jr.,
lT especially In charge' of this .popular dis
tribution of scientific! knowledge, and bas
enjoined upon all bureaus of tbe department
the duty ot co-operating In this direction.
There are few branches of tbe service from
which a ready response can be more prop
erly expected than the Weather Bureau,
that has charge of the collection and dis
semination of all proper Information re
garding the ever-changing weather con
ditions so directly affecting the comfort
and health ot all the people.
The officials ot the bureau have been
greatly pleased with the very Important co
operation that the press is giving to the
bureau in tbe distribution ot weather
Information in this and other communities.
While it is possible for the Government to
publish a comparatively small number of
the Daily Weather Maps on a large scale,
and to distribute these by messenger or by
mall. It is nevertheless clear that reliance
will more be placed upon the dally press
for this purpose. Since a practical way
has been found to niakesuch clear.handsome
reproductions of the la rgemap.the necessity
tor the Government map Is somewhat mod
ified, because the general points of the
current weather conditions are displayed
sufficiently well for all common purposes
on 'tho smaller scale. Of course, the ad
vantage is all with the press in reaching
larger numbers of people.
Reports are constantly coming to tbe bu
reau ot an increasing interest in the dally
weather map on the part of many persons
who have been attracted by the press'
reproduction, and very often these are ac
companied by the expression ot the wish
that they could understand the meaning
ot the lines a little better. The proportion
of readers who do perceive the way the
lines show tbe temperature and pressure
of the air as they change from map to map
In their location Is already great, and yet
It is thought that with a little care and
effort nearly every one who can read
may also comprehend the daily weather
map, at least approximately.
It Is like learning "a. haw language and
at first costs some labor, but when once the
symbols are understood, thereis a pleasure
in reading the same that compensates for
tbe intellectual work expended. This ar
ticle Is therefore addressed to those wbo
have not quite mastered tbesymbolsand tbe
lines on the mop, and to those who hare
not yet attempted to look into It

It is well krows'that the forecasters of
the Weather Bureau often make mistakes
in their efforts to interpret the probable
chances in there 3uks -for a -day or two
ahead, uud that ih consequence they are
subject to criticiEm by the public for their
failures. On comparing the ciitlchnis
on the work of the bureau from different
portions of tbe country, it is seen thnt the
people who best understand the difficulties
of the art of forecasting are most Just in
tbelr criticisms, and that generally the
press bas been fair in their ttatemnets.
This is no doubt In a measure due to
tbe advantage that the reporters of the
press have in their frequent visits to the
central and local offices of tho Meather
Bureau, by which tbey are more in touch
with the details of the work Itself. In
tbe same way, tho more familiar the
people of any locality are with the way of
making tbe forecasts, tho more considerate
they are of failures to reach perfection.
The Weather Bureau, therfeoro, wishes
every one to know as much as possible
about this subject, and only regrets the
criticisms that arltc Iroin impatience and

Tbe Weather Bureau receives about 142
observations, 8 n. m. and 8 p. m.,
dally, from different points in tbe coun
try, all taken at the same moment ot time
for a given map. For the 8 a. m. map
tbey are telegraphned In and received at
Washington between 8:45 and 0.30 a,

For illustrating the mode of drawing the
lines, the Washington map ot Thursday,
August 1, 1895, 8 a. m , is selected.
Against each of the twenty-two cities are,
written two figures, the upper giving
the' temperature and the lo wer the pressure
of the air at 8 o'clock in tbe morning of Au
gust 1. Thus the temperature at Boston
Is 64 degrees, and the pressure 29.82
inches; at New 1'ork 60 degreesand
29. 9Q Inches. A s we go toward the West
the time of the observation is earlier in
the morning, that is, in the Mississippi
Valley the. observer reads his instrument
at 7 o'clock, local time, on the llociry Moun
tain Slope at 6 o'clock, and on the Pacific
Coast at G o'clock, so that all the observers
may read at the same moment. Co-operation
is therefore tbe peculiar feature ot
the operations of the service. ,
On looking over the map the simplest
question to ask is, where do the same tem
peratures prevail, and where are theprrss
ures Just alike. It Is evidently helpful to
tbe eye to draw a line through tbe places
wbcre the same conditions exitx, and it is
most com enient to select tbe even 10 degree
differences, and the even tenth-inches
differences for such connecting lines that
is, dotted lines are drawn through all places
having the temperatures 60 degrees, 70
degrees, 80 degrees, and solid linM through
the places having tbe pressures 29.90
inch, 30-inch, 30.10 Inches, barometric
pressure. Now in order to do this, it be
comes necessary to interpolate; the-spaces.
It is seen that the temperature at Galves
ton and Now Orleans is 80 degrees and a
line can be drawn through these, but for
Jacksonville tbe temperature is only 78
degrees and the 80 degree line must run
a little south of ittoallowforthedropfrom
80 degrees to 78 degrees in going north
ward. For tbe 70-degree line we proceed as fol-
lows: At El Paso the temperature is 68
degrees and evidently the 70-degree line
must lie between El Paso and the 60-degree
line, at intervals of 2 degrees on the El Paso
side, and 10 degrees on the Galveston side;
near Little Rock, 4 degrees on one side, and
10 degrees on the south side; near Lynch
burg, 6 degrees on tbe north side, and 10
degrees on the south side. The intervals 2
to 10, 4 to 10, 6 to 10, are the interpolations
referred to, and by a little practice can be
very rapidly performed. In tbe case of the
60-degree line wehavethesani process ,nnd
it runs through Los Angeles, between Port
land and Helena, 8 to 2; between Bismarck
and St. Paul, 8 to 2; between St. Paul and
Chicago, 2 to 6, north of Washington,
through New Tort, and west ot Boston.
These dotted lines of equal temperature
are called isotherms.
In a similar manner we interpolate for
the pressure lines. Thus .the 30.10-lnch
line runs between El Paso, 8 to 6; through
Dodge City, west of Omaha, between Bis
marck and St. Paul, 18 to 6;tcIctls south
ward between Chicago and Wnshinglon,
4 to 8; between St. Louis and Lynchburg,
10 to 6; between Little Rock and Augusta.
2 to 6, and between New Orleans and Jack
sonville, 2 to 6. For tba S0-iccn line wo
start between Los Angslcs and EI Paso,
4 to 2, and pass between Salt Lake Olty nnd
Denver, 4 to C, Just east ot Bismarck, rol
low the general curve ot the 30.10-lnch
line and pass between Washington and
New York. 2 to 10.
Another 30-lnch line passes through San
Francisco, between Helena and Bismarck,
4 to 8. Another 30.10-lnch lino passes
between Portland and Ilelena, 6 to 4. A
29.90-Inch line passes through New York
city, and a 29.S0-lnch line Jest north of
so as to harmonize with each other, mak
ing a system ot curves that grade Into each
other by easy changes. Such lines of equal
pressure are called isobars.

that some willtake the trouble to construct
a little map for themselves by way of
practice. Take eoojc semi-transparent paper
