The Storm la Western Kassas Svrceptns this
The superb weather of the pflPt few days
was .succeeded last nicht by a storm which
begau -w. ith raiu mixed snow, becamo sleet
at daylight this morning and ag.iin
changed to snow later on.
In the westbrn put of the staca a howl
ing blizzard is reported, which is said to
be advancing this way at tho rate of sixty
miles an hour. In the foothills it has been
raging with terrific violence and the wind
swept plains have been changed in a day
by the icy blast to a vast sea of ice. The
snow and sleet have been as fierce as the
wind, and the damage done must be enor
mous. The storm came first from the vicinity
of Denver and the cold vave has lolleii
towara the Arkansas valley like an aveng
ing army. In fact it is said that it origin
ated in the fact that Quaker rolled oats
were put in the Wichita, market ahead of
Denver, and this hurricane is sent on ac
count of the intense feeling this caused.
Dispersion of Ilants.
It is a matter of common tradition
that many of the worst pests of our
fields were introduced by tho early
colonists under gome mistaken notion
of their value. In all newly settled
parts of tho world tho same mistake is
being repeated over and over again.

have been destroyed in this island by

Tho "gendarme plant" was brought
hero in a pillow by a gendarme from
Tahiti. It was a seed attached to a
wing of silk cotton. The gendarme
shook out his pillow; the wind carried
tho seed to a. suitable spot, and now it

We have just got a plant here, bear

What was tho secret of his wonder

WITH LOAF Ml) CMDLE.
fin parts of England there is a superstition that
a loaf of bread and a candle floated on the -water
will seek the sunken body. In Yorkshire cake is
white bread, bread is oatcake.
With a loaf aud a candle!
We live in the oddest world, where men
labor to do the simplest things in the most
roundabout way, and to put whatever they
come in contact with to purposes otiar than
Full a oorG cf In the main not. unintelligent
man were about to tearoh for the body of
their master with a loaf of cake and a candle.
How a loaf and a candlo should conduce
toward tho finding of the object they sought,
it is not easy to tee. What there was in the
nature of loaf or candle to make each appro
priate to the purpose, not ono of thc3e in the
main not unintelligent men asked.
The upper reach of tho canal had drained
its-elf a ay, but at tho lodes tho rush of water
had furrowed tho bed, pent in as it had been
between the walls, aud had left deep pools.
Bolow the locks the face of tho land was fiat,
the fall slight, and there tbe canal was brim
ming, and much of the water that had over
flowed still lay about in the fields. This por
tion of the Keld basin vi-ent by tho name of
the Fleet, which indicuted a time when it
had been a waste of ooze and water channels,
sometimes overflowed and sometimes dry.
The whole of the drained canal bed had
been searched between the lock and the
bridge that carried the road across the river
and canal a distance of three-quarters of a
mile, but without success. Tho men who in
tended prosecuting the search in their own
fashion wero clustered below the shattered
locks. But the gathering did not consist of
men only. With them were somo mill girls
from a factory on tho slope that had nofr
stopped, not having been afTected by th
flood. They tvore scarlet or pink kerchiefs
over their head?, pinned under tho chin, and
plain white pinafores to protect their dresses
at their work from the oil, a costume as pic
turesque and becoming as convenient. These
girls -wore thoio because it was an unsuitable
placo for them no other reason will suliice
to explain their pi esence. But women, water
and wind will panetrate everywhere.
Mrs. Sidebottom and Salonie were also on
tho canal bank. They had no faith in the
expariment about to be tried, but each for
dlllerent reasons thought it expedient to be
present. Salome would not be away, so in
tense "nras her enxiety about tho fate of Undo
Jeremiah, and Mrs. Sidebottom would bo
there so as not to seem indifferent. Janet,
tired from her long journey, and not strong,
did not come out; she remained ivith her mo
ther. Philip and Lambert Pennycomequick
were thero as a duty; a disagreeable and
onerous duty tho captain considei ed it, be
cause it spoiled his dinner.
A loaf and a candlo.
A good round loaf of baker's bread had a
hole scooped out of it, and into this hole a
tallow candle was thrust The candle waa
bghtod and sent adrift on the canal.
The night was dark, the moon did not rise
for another hour or more. All the mills in
tho valley were dark. 2ot only had they
been brought to a standstill by tho flood but
tho main of tho gas was broken. This was
tho cause of the eclipse, likewise of tbe lamps
on the road. Tho water had left tho cottago
of the lockkeeper, and tho bodies of tho dead
man and his wife had beea found aud laid on
tbe sodden bed. A yellow glimmer shono out
of tho window, for a candlu burnt there, and
a fire had been kindled. An old woman, a
relation, driven from her homo by tho water,
was sitting there, tr3nng to coax a fire to keep
in, in the w et and rusty graSe, and supplying
heivolf with gin to keep out tho chill.
Tho town on tho hill flank twinkled with
lights, and just beyond the vid,e pulsated tho
auroral flicker from the distant foundries.
The lamps on tho railway shono green and
Some of thoso engaged in the search bore
The cluster on tho embankment, w ith the
moving lights, tho occasional flash over a red
kerchief or a w hito pinafore, and the reflec
tions hi the water, united to form a pictur
esque and striking picture.

"There's no stream flowing,"' said another.
"There owt ta be, aud there is for sewer
T cau'l bo gau'in up t' course."

It as true; the loaf of bread which had
been placed in the water, iubtead of taking a
feauard direction iith the natural fall of
the current, waa swimming slowly but per
ceptibly upward. Tho yellow flame of tho
candle was turned towards tho locks, show
ing in v faich direction tho wind set, and ex
plaining naturally tho phenomena. The cur
rent was so slight thatthowind acting on tho
loat had power to overcome it.
"Sho's travelin' upwards," said the first
speaker. "Sho's bound to seek him ahc."
Into the canal suddenly fell a mnts of un
dermined bank, making a splash and sending
the floating light gyrutnig and dancing as
the wavelets formed. One of the mill girls,
going too near the edge, had trodden on the
looked soil and noarly fell in herself, provok
ing a laugh and a reprimand.
"Mind what thaYt a boot, lass,' shouted one
of tho men, "If tha. falls In Tia none boun
to hug thco aht."
"I can craw 1 aht wi'out thy hugging, BiU,"
answa ed the girl promptly.
"Ehl"' said another. "Elilo, for sewer thouVt
not bawn to bo drowned.''
Some byplay went on a half romp in the
rear, between a yonng woolcomber and a girl
"Xa, then," shouted tho night watch,
"we're nouo come aht for laikca"' (games)
"and if you're to remain you nmt be quiet."
The incongruity of their behavsw with the
gra lty of the occasion struck tho young peo
ple, and they deviated.
What had become of the refuce hut!
Curiously enough, till this moment no one
bad noticed its dippearance, perhaps be
cause of the completeness with which it had

gusted with its work, and resolved bo longer
to prosecute the inquiry. Bata minute later
it caxno apparently to a 'better mind; the

The strange conduct of the loaf was, in re
ality, caused by the currents and revolution
of the water, but as these were unperceived
by those who looked on, they became im
pressed with the conviction that tho loaf was
really animated by a mysterious occult power
that impelled it to fulfill tbe task allotted

The grappltrs were cast in, and caught im

The men drew at tho ropes, and the waters
gurgled and were disturbed about the loaf,
producing a brood commotion. The loaf

"Whatever can't bo?' asked one of the
men. "Sho might be a coil (coal) barge sunk.

Two or three volunteered, and after much
wading and splashing a cumbrous article was
heaved out of tho water, but not by three or
four men; for several more, taunted by the
mill lasses, went iu to tho assistance of the
first few volunteers.
"Why (in general exclamation), sho's a pi

Tho moon had risen by this time sufficiently
to transform tho whole sheet of water into
ono of light.
Suddenly the laughter, the joke3, tho ex
clamations of wonder died away for some
thing was seen that had rien from the depths
disturbed by tho commotion of the water and
mud when the piano was extracted.
And seel tho loaf, with its extinguished
caudle, was swimming toward the object. It
reached it; it capered about it; it ran round
it, and then attached itself to it.
What waa it?
Then thero rushed by along the line a train,
with tho whistle shrieking continuously, to
givo warning to workers on the embankment
that it was coming. And that shriek so
wrought on the nerves of some of the girls
present that they screamed also in sudden
terror, for though no one answered tho
question what that blot on the canal surface
w as every one knew.
All stood motionless again, waiting till tho
scream of the train was lost, and then, in si
lence, two men waded into tho water,
reached the object, drew it after them to the
bonk and laid it on the ton path.
Then tho group drew toward it, after a mo
mentary hesitation and recoil, and tho police
man passed the ray of his bull's oyo lantern
up and down it.
Tho question could no longer be, "What

was partially naked, with bare feet, and

"I beg your pardon," said Mrs. Sidebot
tom, who had pushed forward; "he was not

I knew he was lost, and found that his dross
clothes were there and the bed disturbed."
Tho policeman, kneeling, examined the
pockets. From that in the breast of tho over
coat he drew forth a card case, and held it
close to the lantern.
Salome looked at It and said immediately,
"That is Mr. Pennycomeqnick's card cose."
"And his cards are in it," added the police
man. Salome looked again attentively at the
"That is Mr. Pennycomequick's overcoat.

What He Was Paid For.
A stylishly dressed and vivacious looking
young lady with abundant golden hair an,
rosy cheeks narrowly escaped being crushed
jy a cable car at the junction a few af ter
tioons ago. Tho car was almost upon her
when one of the big, accommodating special
polioemon seized her in his arms and Uf ted
her safely to the sidewalk. Hundreds of peo
ple wituessed the gallant performance, and
the young lady blushingly darted through
the crowd and hurried on down Main street.
Presently a joung man of decidedly dudistlo
appearance in dress, but muscular in strength,
who had seen the special policeman bear the
blonde beauty to tho sidewalk, stepped up
and took position near the officer, betweeit
the car tracks. He had Btood there statue
