WAAnNIN -O FAnMEns.-There is a
rot of swindlers whose operations are
espeela Ily dlirected toward farmers. Itl
Is no rgellectti upon, the Intelligence
of farthers that this Is so. These ras
cals know thalt all kinds of fishi are not
to be caught with one balt; hence they
operate upon clergymen, doctors, mer
chants and fairmors, each in a different
nianiner. It is safe to predlct that there
is a nesv set of traps ready this spring
to catelt fartners. Of late years the
"agency" dodge hls.been played sue
eessftlly, and it has airdady been start

swindlers are all alter one pattern. A

Herr Hellmaann has just finished a
thorough examination of the fine dust,
usually red, which falls on vessels,
many miles at sea, when passing along
the coast of Africa, about the fatitude a
of the Cape Verde Islands. The follow- I
lig are some of the facts brought out:
Most of the dustfalls occur fit tihe zane
of the Atlantic between 9 deg. and 10
uleg. north. South of 0 deg. north they t
are extremely rare; and thle farthest E
south hitherto was in 2 dog. 50 north, t
20 deg. west. The two farthest west t
were both in 38 dleg. 5 west, both about
800 miles from Cape Verde. Dustfaills
often occur shiultauneously at very dif
ferent points of the Dunkle Meer," or
Dark Saa (as Elrenbirg calls it); In
one case they were 150 milles apart.
They often last for several days. Sur
faces of very differett size, up to 100.- l
000 square miles, .ay receive dustfalls. t
*There Is a yearly period in the frequon
cy of the falls. It seems that near the
African coast most occur in winter; t
farther west, in tile early spring. The V
direction of .the wind during dustfalls V
was from the east, and most frequent a
north-northeast to northeast. The t
dustfalls observed are very irregularly a
distributed. Of sixty-three, taken at
randon, there were eight fails of sand t
and three of sand or dust. Sometimes t
sand and dust falls 8ilultaiteously. The t<
dustfaiils with great extent eapt and
west are denser the nearer the African s
coast. In forty out of sixty-flive in- e
staticos the color of the dust was red. t
Sanetimes there is no coloration, The I
dry mist of the Dark Sea is in casual
connection with the dustalis. Iferr 1,
Iellinan concludes from tle facts that
tile dust material comes principally a
from Africa and from the western Sat
hara. The possibility of occasional t
mixture of particles from South Amlier
lea is not excluded. Ti.e distributiona
of tile dustfalls, both in spaco and it.

"You see, I'm a lone man, and hav- ni
ing plenty of dionef in my pocket I feel vi
like waking the covning Christmas a Ml
joyful one to some poor Widow and her 1o
innocent orphans." an
The oillcer gave him the address of lid
three diflerent worthy widows, and the oy
man went tils way. in about an hour a
soine loud talk ll a saloon ont the street ii
attraeted the otlicer's attention, and the V,
'loie man with a big heart came out of k'r
the rlace with his coat torn down the th:
"Hello I I thought you were anxious
to secid a barrel of flour to some poor do
widow," said the officer. mc
"What I want Is to send hif a bar- he

slowly replied the inan, "and now I'm vic
going right off to do it." TI
He went tacross the Wood ward avenue do
and tried to buy a dog of a boy for five in
cents, and then made several men drink
with him. He then took a notion to go !6
to tle postolle, but on the way met I
the oflicer, who asked him if the flour tik
had been sent.
"Whaz flour?" demanded the Ine. Pr
"Why, that fifty pounds you were W
going to send some worthy widow." E.
"Wasn'tJoing to shend lfsy pounds P8
-only twenzy-fivo pounds," "replied at
the mnan, and he at once started for a

rolled oif the walk, and being unable
to rise word was sent to the offieer, who
catme to take him down. Lifting him
up, lie asked:
"Did you send that flour to that wor

Bursting into tears the man leaned Wd
over on the blue coat and sobbed out:
"Poor wurzy widder-fejot all 'bout i,

Here the.young man pusied the qutt A
into the roof of his mouth, and replied
vith a smile that was clildlike hnd a C
bland: "I never use the weed, and Ola
never did. I consider it the lowest lug
and most shocking habit that a man can and
be ac'dicted to."
"Do you frequent the3>olIcy shops?" MC
