amtlow Shower of ImcU.
Th. rary Bingul u- phenomenon familiarly
known tba ' rain of fros" has len
riiliculed and conlnwli-tv1 by aome scientists,
but there ia abuiiiatit proof that awh occur
rences are by ut means rare. One of the
earliest narrative, or this kiiid is that com
municated to the Crenrh academy by lYofe
aor Font us in 130I, in which be gives an ac
count of a ahowe- of fropi near Toulouse,
and states that lie hiniMelf aaw numerous
young r ronton tni climlca of two gentlemen
who were caught in the whower on the road.
When the diligence in which be was traveling
arrived at the place where the storm burst,
the roadH i,i field were observed to be abso
lutely full of frog. In some placea they ap-
learaa to oe lhr. or rour deep, and the
borans' lioofa kill vl thoiisandu during the
lautge or tne veb cle through the Boot.
A SRO'VKR OF FROOa
An instance of a no lesa curious frog show
er in our own com try is related by a writer
in The Overland a.onthly, who aaya that in
the year I84 be wis with a number of other
tourists traveling in Arisona at least twenty
utiles from any ai ream or pond. The day
being exceedingly sultry, a halt wan made
for a rest of an hcur or two, when suddenly
a dense black cltnd made ita appearance,
which soon began 10 discharge a copious rain.
Nearly every wrnn in the party wore a
broad brimmed telt hat, which proved a
great protection iigainst the rain, as thev
bad already been upaiiiNt the sun. The at
tention of tne trav slers was soon arrested by
a vigorous pelting of something which seemed
like baihitonea U on their somlireros, but
which, greatly to tneir surpi ise, proved to be
a species of diniini tive froa. In iwd than
two minutes the g -ass was fairly alive with
the) little creaturoa.
They were all of one size, about a quarter
of an iucb long, vi ry lively, and aparently
in the beat coutlition. Their fall had evi
dently been broken by the elastic, springy
nature of the grass Alluding to the theory
advanced by sonu acteiilisu, that in such
casea the frog muss of uncensity have arisen
from the ground, the writor suysVIt is not
probable that several hundred thousand, per
haps millions, of .rogs had suddenly been
batched into life by the rain, or, if they Jiad,
that, in their infantile glee, they jumped 5
feet 11 Inches f nun the earth to the top of
our heads merely u show bow the game of
leap frog should tie played. They came from
above, in company with the rain, and this
fact win made cleat by holding out the band
and seeing them fal upon it, aa well as find
lug them upon our bat runs."
Rait ino ri.-UL
To judge from a lumber of instances re
lated in Chambers' "Book of Days," it would
seem that the cases of fih fulls. In the old
country, at least, 01 tuumbnr those of frogs
to a considerable legrea. Ou the 14lb of
April, tKffi, Maj. Mackenzie, of Roeshire,
while walking in a 3eld on bis farm, saw a
great portion of tl o grouud covered with
herring fry three U four Inches in length,
fresh and entire. Tjo rHt was all of three
miles from the Firth of bingwell. About two
yean later, in the hlaud of I Jay, in Argyll
shire, after a day of very heavy rain, the in
babitanta were surprised to find a large num
ber of fresh herriug strewn over their fluids.
More recently a Wit k newspaiter stated that
one morning a large quantity of the aama
specie of fish were f und scattered In a gar
den In that town. Theao, it is stated, the
peasants cooked and ate, though not without
misgivings as to the possibility of some Sa
tanic agency having beeu coucerned in trans
ferring them to such a H0.4
One of the moat c irious iuittaucea of this
nature ia related by itu Huglih oflicer, who,
while residing in Calcutta, saw a quantity of
live fish descend in a heavy shower of rain.
"The most strange thing that struck tne in
connection with this event," said the oflicer,
"was that the Oah did not fall belter skelter,
everywhere, or ben. aud there, but in an
even, straight line, u t more than a cubit in
breadtO." Of all remarkable events of this
character, however, the most sensational
waa the famous "itucky meat shower"
which mystified so msny people some twenty
years ago. This wss at first regarded by
many as a hoax, but waa found to lie a veri
table occurreuoe, altl ough hardly easceptible
of a thoroughly satisfactory explanation.
This "flesh fall" took place on the farm of a
Mr. Crouch, which as in a spot surrounded
iiy high hills and mountuiua, in Dutb County,
Ky. This account, icWon by Mrs. Crouch,
waa substantially aa lollows:
a KINTUJKT BTORT.
"Between U and IS o'clock 1 was in my
yard, not more thai forty steps from the
house. There was a light wind coming from
the west, but the sky was clear and the sun
was shining brightly. Without any prelude
or warning of any k hid, and exactly under
these circumstances, t he shower commenced.
Thm fell waa of not laaa than one nor more
than two minutes' duration. When the flesb
began to fall I saw a lurge piece strike the
ground close by mo, with a snapping like
noise when It struck. I was impressed with
the conviction that it was a miracle or a
warning. The large t piece that I saw was
aa long as my hand nud about half an inch
wide. It looked grbtly, as if it bad been
torn from the throat o' some animal. Another
piece that I saw was I ah round in shape aud
about the size of a half dollar."
An old hunter, residing in the neighbor
hood, on being shown a piece of the flesh de
clared it to be bear n eat, and stated that it
had "that uncommonly greaxy feel" peculiar j
to the flesh of that an mal. A butcher who
was persuaded to toKti the meat changed his
mind about awallowi ig any of it, and de
clared that it tasted m ither like flesh, fish or
fowl It looked to hi u like mutton, but the
smell was a new one. -1 Home of tha meat was
djuit. dry, and there stemed to be a fine, wool
like fiber running through it A great deal
of the flesh was sent to cbemisU and others in
various parts of the couutry, and analyses
were made by several well known scientists.
Professor J. L. Hmlth waa at first inclined to
pronounce it the dried spawn of frogs, but as
it was found under toe microscope to pus
ses, undoubted charaot eristics peculiar to the
flesh of animals, this theory waa abandoned.
Perhaps; the most returnable explanation is
that of Professor PeU r, of Lexington, Ky.,
who believed the fall of flesh to be simply th.
result of a kind of pa t-prandial disgorging
by a flock of buzzards who had been feasting
themselves mora abundantly than wisely on
the carcass of a sheep. This is the simplest,
and, perhaps, after all, th. moat satisfactory
explanation that can be given of th.supposed
Of showers of insects there are a few In
stances on record, and it la undoubtedly true
that th. bo called co ored rain and snow
storms are in many ci ses caused by minute
insects and shells of lnf iisoria carried into the
atmoapban by the winds. Ht. Louis Globa

A Woman's Discovery.
"Another wonderful discovery has
been made, and that, too, by a lady in
this country. Disease fastened its
clutches upon her and for seven years she
withstood its severefcts tests, but her vital
organs were undermined and death
seemed imminent. For three months she
coughed incessantly and could not sleep.
She bought of us a bottle of Dr. King's
New Discovery for consumption and was
so much relieved on taking the rltst dose
that she slept all night, and with one
bottle has been miraculously cured. Her
name is Mrs. Luther Lutz." Thus write
