tiiiitstinT. Ill Cumotiia unit is unknown,
but In t'nraca, which it 1,200 leet high
er." a hail-torm takes place every live
vears. Humboldt speaks of a hail-storm
iui tiiu Chini bn:ui i at a height of 7, lot)
feet, and hail has beon observed in the
Abvfainlun mnuntaltirt and highlands of
h'.-x-t Indies. In iho temperate regions,
on the contrary, hail is tuoro ' freiptt-nt
in the lowlands than in mountainous
countries. In Crcssic.r. near tho J.uko
of Neiifehatel, tho dainnge to the vino
yards is often. seriuns, while at ISigui
enes, which is 1,'JmT it et higher on tho
slope of (.'bailment, hail-storm are rare.
In the high valley of T ravers it rains at
the time when hailstorms burst ov;ir
the niDimtain slopes situated lower
down. Sometimes inHignjiicant cir
cumstances determine the appearance
of hail. Near tho village of t?aaiboro,
in Naples, there was formerly a high
hill to tho northwest covered with
woods, and hail storm wore unknown.
lint sinuu tho hill has been removed to
make way for tho plow ami tho foresU
cleared away, hail storms occur each
year. There are somo curious pho
nomcua connected with hail storms.
The one of yesterday illustrated (-onio
of these. There were paii-os between
the hail stones in which the rainfall
was severe. KaeniU observed this
phenomena. Uo nya that t the bo
ginning of the severest storm ho ever
witnessed thpre"fell some largo drops
of rain; these soon ceasciL, nnd after a
short, interval there foil hail stones
shnped I'ko beans, of one or two-tenths
of an inch in diameter; this ownsu.f, .and. !
then followed rain, and aiter another i
pause fresh hail of two or three-tenths
of an inch in diameter: again lumthor '
P'usu, nnd a new fltl of hall. Of theo j
successive falls of h.Vd stones the lust ,
possessed only a slight coating of ice
over the snow nucleus; the second class I
were partially surrounded with a thick
hnerof ice, and the last hail stones j
were generally rounded masses, ouo-
third of an inch in diameter. In nil '
eaes thu kernel was not transparent, j
while tho surrouuding iee was so in a
very high degree. 1
Another peculiarity, among hail i
storms arises from the fact tnat the j.
central portion of the region passed I
over by tho storm is almost ontirely
free from tho fall of hail stones, which
are almiud. Invariably found in two or '
more belts parallel to the track of the (
storm center and some distance- there-;
from. 'J'tnut Id the storm of July 13 j
17(8, which passed from Franco in a
north-easterly direction into llolhiud.
the storm track was about live hundred I
miles in length, ami w-.is travcrs.-d in j
less than nine hours. , Over the central
track, to a breadth of six miles on
either side, no hail fell, hut heavy rain. '
On either side of this region, to a dis-
tance of live or ten miles, the country :
was visited y hail storms that were
most dovafctaluig, since onward of !5,- '
C( Hi, WO worth of property was do-!
There have been many means aug-
f:eted to pvevent hail tornis, but none
lave as yet been erowuod with suoress.
So tho field is still open to enterprising
invent rs and discoverers, lu some
countries bells have been rinig, drums
beaten, cannons lirod, and evon rocki'ts
discharged, but all have proved as in
eilicient as eousecrated Iierbs, magic
turmulas. o'd-women remedies, or do
vices calculated toiUiet Iho fears of thu
superstitious. It wntr onee iftinght
that a system of' lightning rods would
convey the electricity irorn tho clouds
and render Iho formation of hail im
possible, but an experiment tried In
Canton do Vaud, in Switzerland, puts
to .light this theory. Many conductor
woro here eroded and a torriblo storm
occurred from tho -.'-.'d to tho 2.id of
Juno, 18-i, upon tho protected vino-'j

Areompanying hail storms thunder j
and lightning are frequent. Yet it is;
not common for lightning to strike :

storms. An 'exchange furnishes omo i
reasons for the color of lightning, which i
are pertinent: ' , . ' ' , j

A few practical suggestions In refer
ence to ramping out may not come
amis.! Iluy a horso, if you can, nnd
borrow a. wagon, or pay a trifle 'for its
use, ' Now, having -your- horse and
wagon, pack faref ally. Marty take only
a co!Teo-pot and a frying pan for the
cooking department. r Vonr eofl'ce-pot
had better have bo'tlv ball and handle
inula lip, not a lid,' as handles nud
spmits nre ajit to burn off.-' Kach cook
ing ntenstl should havo its own jug, so
as lfot : blttirhMr" Other thing. I ho
rest of the eiHking utensils nro-wntor
pail, halchet,' largo knife, and knilu,
fork, ' spoon, - plate and cup for each
person. The wooden picnic - plates,
which you can wash a few times and
then kindle the tiro with, are much bet
ter than china ones, inquire before
hand if on can buy meat nnd vegeta
bles along the ronto. and then provide
accordingly. A light rubber blanket is
needed lor each catnpor; those with a
hole in tlio middle for the head are tho
'icst, -as they do for both day and night.
If you havo room, carrv an empty tick,
which j on can fill with straw and hem
lock. "A comfortable bod is then at
your service. ; The ladies, of course,
'should havo a separate" tent. Ho sure
to provide yourself with books for rainy
weather, a'mimbcr of glees if you are
musical, and Somo few simple remedies.
Kach member of the party should be
provided with his or her own haveiv
sack, with brushes, sc'ssors, thread and
noodles, etc. Plenty of ro'e. twine and
copper wire should" not be forgotten.

Of nil American customs, that of
"treating to drinks" is about the most
ridiculous. Ten men meet iu a bar
room. Of those three may be old no
(juaiiitiinccs ami the other seven stran
gers to the three nnd each other. Tho
tirst Americanism is the "introduction"
of everybody to everybody else. Thus,
Mr. A let mo introduce you to Mr.. It,
Mr. II this is Mr. C, Mr. C this is Mr.
A. .Mr. A i his is Mr. D, and ao on all
through the changes, at tho end of
which Mr. A is utterly lo-t as to the
identity of Mr. C. as is Mr O lo that of
Me. A, and as Mr. H to that of Mr. D,
and as also is Mr. K to Mr. A. He ng
now inuoh mixed and strangers as be
fore, the nest ceremony is opened bv.
" Well, gentlemen, what will you have?''
Should there be Ion drinks to bo pre
pared, embracing "mixed" and "long
drinks," it involves the patient waiting
of tliu ono trout or and nine treated for a
period of live and sometimes ten min
utes, which in many canes are passed in
stupidly watching tho activity of tho
barkeeper, who is really I he mo-1 inter
ested and profited person present. At
last, when all is prepared, ten drinks
are raised aud silently slip dowu ten
throats. Then some oo else feels it
his duty to "treat." Meantime; one
third of tho previous treated may slip
away on one pretext or another. ' for
fear of being uaiied upon by a bar-room
sort of conscientiousness t' "keep their
cud up." And so this looiish, dreary
custom goes on, while tho bar keeper
has most of the pleasure aud all of the,
