Tornado Prediction-Saving Lite
NEW YORK, October 14, '85
EDITOR ADVERTISER: The atten
tion of Congress is called to the fact
that sores of the terrible loes of life
and property due to tornadoes or. bg
averted. In 1882, Prof. T. B. Maury,
apserlM what was then the fact thal
tie prediction of a tornado was a
triumph yet to be attained by thc
eciecce of meteorology. In lese than
two years from that timo 6ome pre
dictions of tornadoes were successfully
made by Lieutenant John P. Finley
of the Signal Service. The percent
age of verified predictions io s'eadily
increased by knowledge of the aver
age conditions preceding each s?rier
of tornadoes, thus making the pre
dictions more definite and.local with
each succeeding year. Already the
"predictions of safety for the day ar*
effective. Of 3228 predictions un
.. favorable to tornadoes, made in 18S.-1
3201 were verifield, and of 3S pre
. dictions that tornadoes would occur
?ado in' April and June, 1881, IS
were verified. Of 19 predictions that
tornadoes would occur, made in June
and July, 1885, 15 were generally
. verifed. When tornadoes were pre
dieted,* in no instance did - vicient
storms fail to occur, either hurricanes,
tornadoes, or hail.
The failure of some predictions is
doubtless'due to inaccurate and insuf
ficient ?report? from sparsely settled
regions? While-it .is admitted that
nothing like absolute control of these
phenomena has been attained, yet
the above figures clearly justify the

lina, especially during April, May,

It Shoped that" Congress will direct
the Signal Service to submit estimates
of the expense necessary to establish
such a system of signals. The coat
would be a few thousand dollars for

For the Advertiser.
Simmons Ridge Samaritan Baptist
To the Editor o/Mie Advertiser:
The interest manifested! by you in
the publication of : eli gio ns matters,
induceP me to write a few brief notes
of the Simmons Ridge Samaritan Bap
tist Association. This Association ie
composed of churchen mainly from
Edgefield County. The last meeting
was its ninth annual session, and it
uow comprises thirty-six churches.
The last meeting was at Willow Spring
Church, Thursday, Oct. 15:h, inst.,
lasting four days. The Moderator,
Rev. Eli Key, opened the meeting
with the usual ceremonies. After
which the Introductory Sermon was
preached by th6 Rev. Ned. Stalks,
the oldest Minister in the held, At
the close of the sermon, which was
very much appreciated by all present,
the Moderator-announced the house
in order for businees. But beiore pro
ceeding to the regular businees of the
Association, R?V. J. C. Burket, Pas
tor of the Willow Spring Church,
roee and in a very feeling and chris
tianlike manner, extended a cordial
welcome to the delegates and breth
ren, assuring them that they were
welcome in every sense of the word,
and said that they were not in a land
of strangers, but among christian
brethren and eisters, who could and
did feel for them. Further aeeuring
them that no pains would be spared
to make their short stay a pleasant
one. And indeed it was. Space will
not allow a full deecription ol thu hoe
pitalitiee of the Willow Spring breth
reu and sisters, Suffice it to say, that
the people of that community have
always been noted for their generosi
ty and christian benevolence.
The next business in order was the
enrollment of delegates and churches
and the reading ot letters. Quite a
large number ol delegates were pres
ent at the opening of the meeting,
though many of them reside in the
moot distant part of the County, and
even eome from other Counties. It
wae quite evident from the etatietical
report of letters that. many of the
churches had made large accessions
during the Associational year, and a
groat many of thees acceesions, too,
were made from Sunday School Schol
are. Right here, Mr. Editor, I may
digress a little from the main subject
I of this letter. In speaking' of ?bun
I day school scholars, it is to be regret
ted that many of the churches are
wanting in that peculiar interest that
ought to be taken in Sunday School
werk. Those who see and feel tho
great neceseity of braiding up thie
branch of the christian church, have
been left too often unaided in their
efforts to make it a permanent and
living institution. Even too by pa
rents who are professing christians.
Many seem to think that it is of sec
ondary importance in church matters,
and therefore make no special tiforts
to keep their children in attendance
or aid in support of the echool. It
eeoms to be a difficult matter for eome
to U: derstand that the echool ia the
church, or rather an indispeneable
part of the church, that ought to be
ioetered and supported by the church.
Nuw when we think that theme little
ones whoar? now Sunday school schol
ars, in a few years will have taken
our place both in the church and
Sunday pcbool, how important then
that their little mind* be properly
Trained and Btored with Biblical truths
?or their noble calling.
Returning to the subject of this
letter. With a few excep"ione? the
?iwa?Mg wnw ^hw^^ld-brriWifEuTt
Matters of Considerable import were
brought before the body, and, ae a
matter of course, caused brethren to
differ in their views and opinions;
but any delegate was privileged to
dircues and vote on alleubjecte before
any final disposition could be made
td them. Many important Guhjecta,
piic-h-as Home and Foreign Missions,
Ti raperance'and Education, were tak
en up and d?6cueeed fully and freely
by the delegates and other vieitiug
We were glad to aee our white
brethren in the meeting. They may
be assured thut their preBence and aid
are always acceptable and very much
appreciated in all of our meetings.
We mention one of distinction, Dr.D.
C. Tompkins, who visited the meeting
two or three times during the cession
We wore delighted with his presence
and pleased with his remarke. Hep
the doctor will meet ue again.
There were three special sermons
pr? ached during the cession : Intro
ductory, Doctrinal and Missionary

It has been suggested that the State
Department of Agriculture can prop
bri y and profitably undertake a aeries
>f experiments to teat pr.'j.c.icaily the
jest medea of cultivating '.obceco in
Vuth Carolin?, and to determine
vh.vt ch:ss nf tobacco !B adapted to
he variouH districts of the State. At
hr. name time il iii be practicable
o gang9 the value ol the crop in
noriey, ns compared vriih oct:os and
;rain. Thi-1 can betilVcled br the
^parim^nt at very little expense.
Wc- hnve nc iden that it is ni cc-Sda
y or desirable to establish e.xperi
?enifil larme which shall be owned
r rented by the Department, and eu
lerintended by persone whom it em
doy. There ia a simpler and cheap
r plan than thie. The Department
an aelect planters who have a repu
dien 1er practical aa well as aden
?fie farming, and invite one of these
0 each ul the different. sections of
ie State, or even in every county, to
lant an acre of land ir tobacco and
ti acre in cotton and grain. The De
artmenl can have the soil, analyzed
t the different elations, so that the
roper fertilizers can be applied. At
nail expense the department can fur
ieh the fertilizers and eeed, and pro
hibe, if couBidered necessary, the
lannerof cultivation. The important
mditione are that the planters who
uderUke the experimente shall be
en of intelligence and knowledge,
ho will torn to good account the in
rmation given them, and report care
illy the result of their action. The
tree acree cultivated at each station
lould, if possible, be side by side, so
tat those visiting the station can
adily inspect the crops. At the end
the eeaeon, and when the crope
ive been marketed, the comparative
line will be known and much valua
e information will have been ob
It is probable that ten experimental
ations would be sufficient ; and we
??bt that the 'expense to the Agri
iltura? Dopartment would exceed
'0 or three thousand dollars. This is
a tr'??Dg Pura in ucmparioon with I: e
.advantages which; cari be expected o
be. de ived from the plan. It'wiU not
'be'difficult to limit the outlay to'the
amount designated, but, if the mean?
can be cLt.i::ed, it Will probably le
lound advisable to defray the whole
expense of cultivating the experiment
al acre?, and ia this event the Agri
cultural Department can reimburse
itself from the proceeds oPthe ex
perimental crops, giving any surplus,
after the payment of the expenses, to
the planters themselves in return for
their pains in superintending the sta
It is to be hoped that the Agricul
tural Department will consider the
matter favorably. It is as important,
in our opinion, as any project which
the Department has adopted'; and it
is not much to ask that about a tenth
pert of the revenues of the Agricul
tural Department shall be laid out, in
the way described, for the collection
ol practical information and the prop
agation of knowledge among the'farm
ers of South Carolina.-News and
