'ORECAST OF STORMS TO CROSS
From August 10 to 14 and 13 to 19,
With the Next Disturbance the
Temperature Will Turn Upwards
Unusually Warm and Dry.
(Copyrighted 1913, by W. T. Foster.)
Washington, D. C., August '9.
Last bulletin gave forecasts of dis
turbances to cross continent 8 to 12
and 13 to 17; warm waves 7 to 11
and 12 to 16; cool waves 10 to 14 and
15 to i,.; Great extremes of tem
peratires will result, very warm
near Aug. 8 and unusually cool near
12. These being the dates that the
warm wave and cool wave will cross
meridian 90, eastward bound.
There is where the corn crop will
find its test and the result is in
doubt. Dry, hot weather has the
right of way and the final resutlt is
problematical. Friends of tihis
weather bureau have been advised
to buy and hold grain and cotton,
particularly oats and cotton, be-;
cause we believed that crop weath
er of 1913 would cause these farm
products to go to higher prices.
Grain and cotton have largely
fluctuated in prices thruout the sea-i
son and without any real.cause. The
big speculators manipulated 'the
prices. But our advice has prov-1
en good and those who bought and
.held grain and cotton on our ad
*ice early in the crop season now
have good profits.
We continue to advise farmers
not' to sell and advise those who
have bought to hold at least till the
* d of August because we believe
'August weather will make higher
iNext disturbance will reach Pa-i
cific coast about August i1"- cross
Pacific slope by close of 1,-'great
central valleys 19 to 21, eastern sec-'
tions 22. Warni wave will cross!
Pacific slope about August 17, great
central valleys 17, eastern sections
21. Cool wave will cross Pacifi3
slope, about August 20, great ceitral1
valleys 22, eastern sections 24.
With this disturbance the tem
peratures will turn upward follow
ing the compartaively cool weather
that fcllowed the last- distt'bance
and th, last half of August is ex
pected to be unusually warm and
'dry. Not far from August 12. show
ers may, lie expected.
The most severe storms of Au
gust will come with this last, de
scribed storm wave but no very des
tt uetive storms are expected. Th-se
storms may be expected along paral
lel of' atitude 40. The Baltimore
storm July 29 was in time foa our
last storm period of July.
A new Chief of the U. S. Weather
Bureau has been appointed and the
co,'. n, nts on the appointment' are
generaly favorable. Professor Mar
vin. is credited wth being guided by
good pl--poses and that is the most
impoitant feature in the character
of any man. His task is enormous.
That weather bureau is better fit
ted for commerce than for ag,'icu!
ture °nce it should be 'in the depart
ment of commerce and labor. You
can not pitch hay with a rake. The
department of agriculture needs a
long -range crop weather bureau,
while the, short, or 24-hour fore
casts; are better suited to commerce.
-The: two kinds of weather forecasts
-hav r very iuttle :relation and 'they
should be separated.
The U. S: VWeathemrBureau is run
ning after strange gods. It is look
;ing to theSunirt to find: the cause of
our weather changes. Better look
to the moon and planets. It will
require fifty years to compile a
record. of the supposed variableness
of the sun's output of heat before
any progress can be made along that
line and that is too long to wait.
Cutting affrays are becoming as
common as are the killing of men
for the least provocation. Two af
frays in two` days with cutting and
stabbing as a starter for August
without a possible forecast of how
many -more cuitting affrays will oc
cur before the end of the month.
,Are :-;these affrays stimulated
through :'te gentle and genial influ
: ice of "H'iawatha"' or the more di
re-it, exhilarating effect of the beer
from New Orleans which if im
hbied too freely will, it is said, lead
sae men to :stand on their heads or
climb a pole as mohkey.
;thr\ eporl Men Charged With Kiill
ing Fish in Lake Bisteneau.
Signal-l)em;-i, vr:ti Aug. 8: Sunday
iieputy Sheriffs Plhillips and Hilnaii
irrsted in shrevpl'rt Paul Sledge,
ngineer for the V1ater\works CoIn
:any: Tonm. Huddleston, engineer for
the Excelsior Steam Laundry Conm
)any, and another white man, Wil
iam McCann, charged with destroy
ing fish with dynamite in Lake Bis
teneau. The men arranged to gie
bond for their appearance at'the
next term of court without being
brought to Minden.
The men were turned up by two
white men, Dugan and Smith, who
live at Yellow Pine and who were on
the lake the day these men were
said to have been down there. Du
gan and Smith heard the report of
the dynamite and on investigation
they found the men gathering up
the fish from the water. It is said
the Shreveport men killed and se
cured nearly as many. fish as two
men could carry.
Dugan and Smith were in town
Saturday and reported the matter
to~the district attorney and sheriff,
and affidavits were made out later
for the arrest of the three men, and
Sunday the deputies went after
them, thinking they could more
easily find them on that day.
If the cases stick and the men are
convicted, Dugan and Smith will be
entitled to $100 reward in each case,
the Police Jury having recently
passed an ordinance offering $100
reward for the conviction of. any
one found dynamiting fish in Web
mne wnite men arrestea in tijs
instance are said to hold responsi
ble jobs in Shreveport. It is said
that they came out to Doyline on
the day it was alleged they commit
ted the crime, Sunday, July 27, se
cured a team and.driver and drove
out to the lake, stopping near the
old salt works where it is alleged
they shot the dynamite. They also
went back by the way of Doyline,
taking- the evening train at that
place .for their homes in Shreve
port. i Conviction in cases of this
kind ctrries with it jail sentences.
At ' ne time Dorcheat Bayou and1
Lake ~isteneau were among the1
finest flisiing streams in the coun
try -anywhere, but of fiate years
they havie-almost played. out'on ac
count of thib wantol 'destruction of
the fish by every conceivable way
dynamiting, seining, netting, pois-1
oning, etc. The people have become
wrought up on account of this law
less destru1ction of the fish in these
streams ,until the Police Jury was
asked to enact some stringent law
whereby this wanton destruction of
fish `dould be stopped. It was then
that the ordinance: offering this re-j
ward for the conviction of all guilty
parties was passed. It is .believed
that this ordinance will go a long
ways toward 'accomplishing this d
sired end. People every day now are
patrolling the bayou and lake, not
,only in an effort to protect the fish,
but also. to secure the arrest of the
violators of the law.
"September Morn" is a picture,
abbreviated in costume and some
what on the order of Mother Eve.
The picture was exhibited several
weeks in Shreveport. Its display in
New Orleans has, as reported,
shocked the modesty of some of its
citizens who insist on its being
draped or that it be retired from
public view. It is claimed that
some of the New Yorkers and some
of the Chicagoans would risk only
one eye on this picture of art when
on exhibition in these cities, but
with all this prudishness, the Tur
key Trot and other scandalizing
dances are tolerated by society.
If "September Morn" were the
style would it provoke a demur, or
would it be accepted as is the x-ray
or transparent skirt?
New Orleans has reached the ex
treme limit of shyness when it is
being insisted that "an art picture"
must be robed, even in shimmy
shirt or be shelved from view.
Suffice it to say that the exhibitor
of the picture has been arrested,
but he is persisting in exposing the
work of art in his show window on

Threatening Letters to Dunlbar.
It is conceded that C. P. Dunbar
has been wrought in the extreme
,ver the abduction of his son whom
he has recovered after many weary
months of indescribable mental
anxiety, but why should so sensible
a man have given serious attention
to anonymous letters threatening
his life and daring him to come to
NewlOrleans? He did go to New Or
leans to demonstrate he is fearless,
but not a single one of the would
be killers appeared at the hotel
where he had his quarters. Prob
ably these letters were instigated by
a joker. It is true such jokes are
reprehensible and such jokers it un
covered and apprehended would be
come involved in serious trouble,
but the scurrilous scribblers who
would slander, defame or unneces
sarily injure seek safety from well
deserved punishment by not di
vulging his name.
Why not let the Dunbars alone?
This Dunbar agitation in newspa
pers should come to an end, not only
for the peace of mind of the par
ents but for the general good of the
public, at least until the abductor
shall have been transferred from
Mississippi to Louisiana for trial, or
he shall be liberated from jail in

Dr. Chandler entertained his hear

The Intermeddling Jap.
Country Review: Dr. Sun, who
was the first provisional President
of the Republic of China, defends
his action in taking the field against
the incumbent President upon the
ground that Yuan Shai-Kai is as
despotic as were the Manchus, for
whose dethronement he fought suc
cessfully. The revolt of the pow
erful governors of the great river
pro vi l~ those of the South is
spreading -gradually, and Pekin at
tributes its rapid spread to the ma
chinations of Japanese emissaries
disseminating the gospel of discon
tent among the leaders and secretly
giving them assistance. Similar
complaints have been made in con
nection with Mexico, where the ar
rival of the new Japanese ambassa
dor was made the occasion of thinly
veiled demonstrations on the parr
of the populace of their antiA
A Splendid Season.
The rainfall yesterday was .all that
could have been desired. It was
gentle and steady and a regular
root-reacher. It was a splendid
season. There may be sown turnips
and a variety of vegetable seeds.
The rainfall will help the "tater,"
the field peas, the late planted corn
and will not injure cotton. It is be
ing fully appreciated.
