* * WU Y AVK IIAVK CYCLONES.
They Must Itocrdks? livovy Yenr Vutll We
From tho Chicago Herold.
In (ho solcntl?C column of n Chicago
journal, of July I, lt seems that the
\vle>le theory of cyclones was olabo
rated in a couple of line<. In un arti
cle for tho lii>t<>ry ot ClllougO (vol. 1.
p. ?SX), the writer gave the following
suggestion: "Hut Chicago has been
singularly free irom tho tlovostatlng
cyclones that havo cut swaths of ruin
in all the coutcrUiinous country, and
the reasonable solution ol' tho fad
appears to he that the light atmosphere
of thc lake absorbs tho approaching
cyclone ami (liss minatcsit. Tho force
of a cyclone, as thc loree ol' dynamite,
requires repression and compression
to educate it.*' In this necessarily
brief allusion tho two great factors ul'
cyclones, simoons, nor thors or other
other te real convulsions, are stilted
negatively. Hut in thoso marvelous
natural convulsions all the postulates
nave to he expressed in that manner.
In fact, to speak ol* thc "forro'' ot a
cyclone ls almost lo usc a misnomer;
for ?ts force is not thai ol' propulsion,
but of exhaustion.
Take the winter of Texas, the "nor
thor", tis au example. The liol South
ern sun for (lays and days beats upon
tho treeless plateau of"?l Lian ? Ksla
endo," or thc Staked plains, and as ail
inevitable consequence the air becomes
exceedingly rarefied and expended.
This expansi?n continuos until the
superheated portion is mot by a mass
of cool atmosphere, mid thon tho nat
ural cllccl of cooling ai.?I condensation
Ol*tho heated air CUStlCS. This creak -
a vacuum, which hiatus ls Ulled by ti
current of tho cooling motor: exactly
on thc same principle ?us that of thc
cooling sea breeze, explained in ever)
work on physical geography. Should
there he a very large area of sillier
heated air, then Ibo continuous con
densation and rushing in ol' thc col.1
air makes the "norther." Thc stun,
causes produce the sumo results ii
both the cyclone on land and thc tor
pedo at sea, and hoth are prefaced bj
a rapidly falling thermometer am
barometer. And the destruction o
the forests ol our Northern States \

inj; else. Thc ll'CCS are nature's mean;
of disseminating moisture in the appel

perature ol' nigh!, is returned to tin
tin ?sty caril) in the form of dew, am
tho removal ol' the trees causes tIii
uninterrupted rarefaction of the ai
and tho consequent eyclo.io. Nebrask
used to be uneuviably dUtiuguishci
by thc violence and irequency ol' it
windstorms. How many ol dies
unpleasant visitations has that Stat
bad since the comprehensive tree
planting thal has been carried Oil there
li would seem that thal case alon
was sufficient proof for the successfti
demonstration ol this axion), withotl
?my purely scientific reasons bcliij
adduced. Hut. if any reader has no
been to Nebraska, or has had no op
portuuity io consult the statistics rola
live to that Slate, the cyclono thcor;
advanced is easily proved by visllinj
any large furnace. (Jo lhere and gc

have an oxnet representation ol th
cyclono traversing the vari nts areas c.
the superheated ulmosphi re, until i
arrives at a region whore tho temporil
ture is normal, when it subsides. Th
rotary motion of both thc cyclono au
thc whirlwind is another proof of th
verily ol this argument. The onto
edge, or circumference, of both is iii
first to be cooled, and thc contre of th
rapidly chilled mass of air ascondin
imparts to tho whole body its r?volu
lions. Tho motion of tho carib on it
axle hits been allogCtl to have .-oin

tone asserted thal a strange man had been
at his home during the night ami ho thought
hail hurt his father, as ho was lying oil
the floor with blood on his face. As this
visit of young Sells was at 1 o'clock in the
morning. Mr. Mendal! questioned him
closely, und Wilie said he wakened and
saw (1 Ulan shunting in the door between
tho room Willie und his brother slept 111
timi thc one occupied by thc parents and
"I got my clothes off the fool ol'the
bcd," said thc hoy, "and was putting them
on when the-mun turned, looked at me, and
then ran emt Into the yard. 1 did liol try
to arouse ?ny brother, but pul on my tren
sers und went into thc room where my
parents were sleeping to get my boots mal
overcoat. I saw my father on thc Moor
with blood on his face, but I thought bis
nose was bleeding, ns he was frequently
troubled that way. When I passed out of
the door the stranger was standing in the
yard, but run. 1 pursued him for half n
mile, when he mounted ll herse held by
another man, and both rode away as !.
they could go."
Mr. Meaunll accompanied Willie home.

light, and was confronted with a horrible
spectacle The floor was covered with
blood, thc ceiling spattered, and tho walls
stained, oldman Sills was lying on the

crushed in and his throat cut SO deep that
his head was almost severed from lus body.

The boy accompanied Mr. Mendal! to
Mr. Rice's house, nearby, v. ?ure ho went
to sleep or pretend? d In sleep, until next
morning. The ofllcers in the morning
made au examination, hut found no tinco
of the stranger or horse tracks, although
Willie s tracks wcro plainly indented In tho

the w rists blood was found on his arms.
There wai blood under Ids linger nails als >,
and his underclothing was oems ?di i dily
