Prof. Proctor on WigglM.
St. Louis, Mo., September 27. The
. Eoelish astronomer, Richard A. Proc
tor, in an article contributed to the
Glubt-Democrat, entitled. 'Oar Wig'
"it appears to me Bhameful that any
man, even though be be not a student
of science and therefore not fully aware
of the miechtcf he is uoirg, should
spread abroad predictions of Cuming
diKteter in such fort trjat tooiish loik
era likely to be distuib.d ami teni
fied. Mr. Wigsins. a balf educated
acd vthrlly unscien'iSc employe of
tr.o Meteorological Umce in Ottawa,
bas long endeavored to ecauire
chesp reputation bv weather predic
tion of that kind, which cf itself as
aures tbe student of science that the
weather prophet is ti her utterly
ignorant cr exceedingly knavish.
After noting several instanc-s of
tbe fa'lure of former predictions
made by Mr. Witgtos, Mr, Proctor
asserts tnat the former's alleged dis
covery of a second moon is but a re
invention, an adopted discovery acd
snstairshis statement by quotations
from Ties and M. Petit, of Marseilles,
acd showa that tbe exigence of
second lunar body Bimilar to our visi
ble moon is an impo sibihty.
"Mr. Wiggins, continues the
writer, "claims to have predicted tbe
eartt quake of August diet, but truly
be ' tas so continuously threatened
storms and earthquakes that no great
dieturbatics of either sort could steer
clear of his predictions. He now
loudly proclaims that on tbe 29th
instant there will be another great
earthquake, one of the most teriiflc
subterranean upheavals ever known
on this continent.
''He knows that such a prediction
will attract attention lor a while to
biB name; that, if no disturbances
should take place on the 29th, or near
enough to that date to eeem like a
fulfillment of bis prediction, peop'e
will coon forget the failure of bis
prophecy and he as ready as ever to
listen to him sea n.
"lc may, however, be asked whether
there is cot some re, sin fur r garding
the ititli of benttmb. r rs a day of dan
ger. Even a Wiggiss, it may be sug
gested, must at leatt imagino reasons
for his predictions', as the T.cec, Ihe
Vennors, the Grimmers and others of
tbe mischievous tribe have imagined
for years in tbe past. Mr. Prcctor
then goes on to show that certain well
known astronomical facts have prob
ably induced Mr. Winging to make his
latest prediction, one being the slight
tendency of eartbqntkes to increase
during the mouths ot August ard Sep-
tember, and another that earth throts
are more apt to occur when the moon
is in or near her point of nearest ap
proach to the earth and in or near the
line connecting the earth and sun than
at other times. The moon will be in
such a position during the latter pait
of tbe present month. Hut such con
ditions, Mr. Prcctor observe, "recur
year after year, and resulting earth
quakes are no more liable to occur
this year than in September of the.
coming century," Un the contrary, he
argues that there has already been one
great earthquake and it is exceedingly
probable that the imprisoned fircej
of the earth beneath tbe American
continent tave for a wbile found re
lief and that no great earthquake will
. occur in tbe same region for many
yeais, po-sibly centuries.

still there had keen within tbe past two

of Chimney rock is very d.flicult to

From these fissutiB columns of
smoke have been seen to tise from

Landlord Miller and many others have
teen this smoke, and it was plainly
definable frjm the intense blue soinky
hszs that always covers the Blue
Ridge peeks. It wig a dense black
smoke, forming a ttrong contrast to
the blue bazo.
Mr. Miller cays that when he first
noticed the smoke cooninz out of tbe
mountain, two years ago, it seemed to
startup like a jet of high pressure
sleames thick as the trunk of a big
tree.acd with a crown like tbe spread
ing folifgs of a p:ns ties. Tbe news
paper invest gitcra made efforts ti
tauge the depths of the fissures, but
without success. Many of them were
partly filled in with timber and huge
stones which had been cast down by
inquititive visitors, but, wherever the
view was unobstructed it was easy to
see tbat they extended far below the
visible base of the lable rock itself,
and probably hundreds of feet into
thedeptbsof tbe mountam. lhore
bad evidently been considerable dir
turbanee of rock within a recent period.
In some places n asses we-'ghing hun
dreds of tons had split away and
sunk vertically, as if t j fill a mighty
chasm existing beneath. The sinking
varied from twelve to forty or fif:y
feet, and tbe growth of young brush'
wcod In the crev.'c s seemed to indi
cate that fie changes had been
effected within the lest three or four
year?. In a few spots light penetrated
the fissures in a la eral direction fifty
or eighty feet below, and signs of
burning or blackening on the walls
were distinctly no'iceable. Volcano
or no volcano, it is plain that active
geologic il changes have been at work
on Chimney lock within quite a re
cent period. The i.t'etitiou of geol
ogists has been called to Cbimney
rock and its queer phenomena, and
sine a tbe recent earthquake, which
sotr.ewhbt enlarged tbe fissures, the
residents ol the valley bave not been
a little agitated over tbe idea that the

An iBKenloua Device.
In China tbore is a curious dev'ce
to make record of earth tremors. Ooe
of the instrument is thus deecribed:
"It is of copper and is shaped like a
wine bottle, inside is a httle pil'ar,
so placed as to move in eight direc
tions. On the outs de of the bottle
are eight dragon heads, each of which
contains a ball. Underneath these
beads are eight frogs, so nlaced tbnt
tuey appear 13 watch the dragon's
face, so that they are ready to receive
the ball if it should be dropped. All
the arrangements which cause the
pillar when it moves to knock the
ball out of the dragon's month are
well hidden in the bottle. When an
earthquake occurs and the bottle is
shaken, the dragon instantly drops
the ball and the frog which receives it
vibrates vigorously. Any one watch
ing th's instrument can easily observe
earthquakes. Once upon a time a
dragon dropped .its ball without any
earthquake, and the people therefore
thought this instrument was ol no
use, but alter two or three days a
notice came, saying (hat an earth
quake bad taken place in Roael."
