THAT TROPIOAL ST.M.
ve 0harleston a Wide Berth and
Has Probably Gone Far Out
Charleston and South Carolina can
reathe a sigh of relief at. the passing
f the storm. The first notice of the
pproach of thle cylone was received
at tihe weather bureau on the first dlay
of the month, says the Charleston
Sunday News. Every day since then
the people have watched for Ithe bul
letins telling of the doings of the
storm. Many of the summer residents
on Sullivan's Island, hearing of the
probable visit of, the eyelone, hastily
gathered their belongings and came
to the city. It was reported that the
dtorm would strick here Thurslay
night or Friday morning, but now the
reports show that it had apssed by.
Each morning the weather bureau
has been receiving news about the
storm, but on Friday morning the
telegram did not come and the re
ports of conditions southward indi
cated that the storm had passed. On
Friday evening a telegram came an
nouncing that the storm was in the
neighborhood of Wilmington, and
said that Charleston was out of dan
ger. The storm warnings were lower
ed as far up as Wilnangton.
The reports yesterday morning
showed that the lowest barometer
reading was at Cape' Hatteras, heing
29.80 at the place. A wind velocity
of 18 miles per hour was also reported,
but this is rather slow wind for a
cyclone. It appears that the storm
has taken a noirtheastern course and
that it was yesterday off Cape Ilat
teras. A captain of one of the Clyde
liners that camne into port yesterday
morning said that the sea was very
rough all the way from Virginia Capes
to Frying Pan Shoals, and that an d

Bluff Beaten By Bluff.
In a Boston secret society it was
customary to b)ring up some trivial or
embarrassing incident in the career of
the candidate as part of the initiation,
making it out a very serious matter.
JTones was a newcomer, and they
could find nothing to jolly him about.
The president, after a long speech
warning him of the seriousness of the
step he was about to take, and how
essential it was that his character
should be without blemish, in order
that the high standard of the society
might be maintained, asked if any
one had any questions they wished to
