Terrific Natural Forces. ?
The present year bids fair to be noted
for its frequent and violent elemental
disturbances. Cyclones, tornadoes,
heavy and rains, followed
by terrible floods, hail-storms,
unseasonable and severe cold and frosts,
have thus far strewn the path of 1882,
and if all predictions turn out to be correct,
the next two months will give,
additional variety to the meteorological
programme in the shape of terrific
thunder and lightning showers. "What
is the matter with the powers of the
air? While no new forces seem to be
apparent in this general weather melee,
it is yet quite evident there is an unusual
combination of forces at work
somewhere. The kaleidoscope of
Nature is revolving rapidly, and sending
her hidden machinery into new positions
and displaying constantly a
succession of fresh and varying phenomena.
But high scientific authority declares
that this world, like a huge bead, is
strung upon a thread of law", and if this
be so, we must not suspect any element
of chance or capricious uncertainty in
the regular and orderly movements of
natural forces. Vennor has recently
given out that he bases his observations
and guesses in part on the periodical recurrence
of certain courses or demonstrations
of atmospheric phenomena;
that about once in so often peculiar
seasons appear, and unusual occurrences
take place in earth and sea and
sky, and that by a careful study of the
past he is able to predict to some extent
the future. It would thus seem
that in the original constitution or arrangement
of things, uniformity and
regularity were to be the prevailing
rules of all natural movements ana
sequences, and in addition to this the
law of variation was also to come in at
stated intervals and modify or interrupt
the otherwise monotonous procession
of events. Just as in a skillfully
composed piece of music, there is the
central theme of melody running
through the whole, and then, harmoniously
mingling with it, an almost infinite
number of divergencies and variations,
so in the grand plan of the world,
as revealed in the operations of the material
universe, there is a main chord
of regularity and uniformity visible,
and, coupled with these, any number of
variable and extraordinary
from the usual course.
Many years ago, among the popular
and instructive lectures of the Rev. T.
Starr King who, as a far-seeing and
subtle thinker, has never had an equal
in this country was one entitled "The
Laws of Disorder." in which he demonstrated
with rare beauty and force the
fact that the most uncertain and apparently
capricious of all earthly events
and movements were under the control
of fixed and unchangeable laws. In
like manner the results of the patient
and protracted studies of all modern
scientific naturalists, like Darwin and
Spencer, go to prove that the idea of
unity and uniformity, coupled with the
power of variations, forms one portion
of the ground-plan of the world. This
is seen alike in the perpetuation of species
or types of an'mals and vegetable
life, in the movements of history and
the unfolding of civilization, in the recurrence
of 'natural phenomena and in
the rolling of the worlds through the infinite
It can thus be seen at a g'ance how
erroneous are the views of those who
would attribute all the extraordinary occurrences
of life to the direct interposition
of an unseen and divine hand. The
conception of a Creator and Ruler of
this and other worlds sitting on a hidden
throne and hurling thunderbolts at
his own will and pleagure far and near,

as Jove was supposed to do from the
top of Mount Olympus, may be Grecian
and classic, but in the light of ascertained
scientific facts and" laws, it can
hardly be called either Christian or civilized.
Another thought in connection with
the working of these terrific natural
forces is, that airy new light which can
be thrown upon the times and seasons
which they observe, or the methods and
laws which they follow, would be a
great public benefaction. And to this
end the recent efforts of General Hazen
and the Signal Service corps to observe
more accurately the origin and courses
of tornadoes in the various portions of
this country are worthy of all commendation.
It is not much, at the best,"
which can be learned or communicated
concerning these terrific aerial visitations,
but all that can be known slumld
be known and distributed broadcast
throughout the sections of country most
liable to sutler from their desolating
ravages. The recent exhibitions of cyclonic
power in Iowa and elsewhere
make this subject a most pertinent one
at the present time, and call for renewed
activity in the direction which the
, Signal Corps has so happily and opportunely
marked out. Chicago Journal.
A Steam-Plow nt Work.
A Fargo, Dakota, letter to the Boston
Journal says: After all that has been
done with reference to bringing out a
steam-plow in this country, it remains
for an ingenious Englishman to invent
and place in successful working a steam-plow.
Mr. J. G. Allen, of Leeds, England,
agent for John Fowler & Co.,
the manufacturers of steam-plows at
Leeds, is accomplishing some excellent
work on the Aurora farm, belonging to
Captain Thomas W. Hunt, atBlanchard.
Dakota. It is attractia great deal of
attention, and farmers are coming long
distances to see the plow at work. Two
enormous traction engines are placed
about 300 to 500 yards apart. Beneath
each engine and belted to the boiler is
a steel drum about five feet in diameter.
To this drum is attached a steel cable
about three-quarters of an inch in
diameter, 500 yards long, and capable
of sustaining a weight of thirty tons,
which drags the plow to and fro across
the field. The plow is a frame-work of
iron resting upon two large wheels; on
each side of this frame are firmly fixed
six plows with colters that cut six furrows
sixteen inches wide each time the
machine crosses the field. On the arrival
of the plow at the end of the furrow
the gauge changes position, and the
plows that have been in the air are lowered
and ready to start back. One man
is suflicint to guide the plow, and,
seated over the body of the machine,
directs one of the two large wheels in
the furrow last turned by means of a
hand-wheel. Each engine is of about
forty-horse power, and weighs about
sixteen tons. When the plow reaches
one side of the field the engine on that
sides moves ahead eight feet, -the operation
taking three and one-half minutes
'only, and the plow is started back to
the other side of the field. The plow
will break from twenty-five to thirty-five
acres per day, according to the soil,
location, and lay of the land, etc. It
also does harrowing."
