THEa WEATHIER LAST YEAn.-The
Charlotte Observer has the following
about the weather last year: "Some
interesting facts concerning the wveath
er during the past year are gleaned
frQom the'records of the signal office in
this city. .lI appears that the coldest
day in the year was January 4th, when
the thermomnoter stoods nt 11 above
zefo. Tho hottest day was July 12th,
t,he thernmiter registeriig 101. The
hottest montha of th6 year was' July,
the mean teinperature h,eing 79.1, and
the. coldest month was February,
mean temperatumre 40.09. The total
rainfall in the year was 44.24 iches.
The grea~test amomont of rain in any
monthi was in #tiiy, 8.64 ines, and
the greatest ,rainfall on any one day
*was on the 80th of the same month,
when the fain gauges showed 4.24
Inches. During the year it.rained or
snowed on 184 days. The psrevailimng
directlior of the wid was from the
southwest, and the highest veloetty re
coraed was 84 miles per hour. There
were Only three snows, which occur
red on' the 19th of January, the 14th of
F'~ebuary/snd the 19th of November,

qoh;ess that we have our doubts about
thi e0e'dqpey of combining political
P)hildofphy and fictiou. However, In
this lstance, the writer has displayed
great ingenuity in sustaining the in
torest, which holds the reader spell
bound throughout the story.
The author has given us in her book
$uprb .spechnens of character-draw
ing. llowever, we do not mean to say
that her characters are perfect, nor does
she seem to aim to make them so. Each
has some peculiarity, some conspicn
ous thult, which tends to make eaci
one impressive. We cannot recollect
ever to have so heartily detested a ficti
tious character as we did the ill-nat ured,
miserly "Mrs. Brown." "Amy Oak
ly," though doubtless. intended to be
the most unexceptionable person in
the book, did not excite our pleasure
as did some others. It is a fact that
human nature will not take to those
unco gude people who are, from their
own elevated standpoint of morallty,
forever looking doWn upon, and chid
ing with pity, . the shortcomings of
their fellow-beings. It is remarkable
that i1ovellsts invariably endeavor to
make their heroes or heroines imnacu
late I "Mario," according to our judg
mont, is the most pleasing, piquant,
natural character of the story.
The style of the book is decidedly
dramatic, sometimes almost verging
ing nto melodrama. The writer has
great descriptive powers, and we pre
dict for her a successful career.
