To the Editor ofthtWatchrii?n?iid
^etkiwi That the citizens of,
Charleston $i? vicinity tfaj Viore
'fuity undersiian? tli?^et>i?(fc and
^3Bas ' of lite taMfe^atke r b Ureau, as
administered *>y the department of
agric?Uure, I desire to give a brief
outline of the duties performed at
this office for the benefit of the
public.
. Since tbe transfer of the meteorolog- j
;*feal dLvisiett of the signal service to !
Ine ?e^'ev'tment of agriculture a more
liberi policy has been pursued in the j
iimit of forecasting temperature and
weather,- resulting- in numerous im-1
pavements?,? which have been highly
commended by tuose interested in
\arious branches of the work, and
wbic^^ifc is believed, will still result
<#? far* *gteater benefit to this cora
anwuity.
Realizing that the work performed
'SrHli?s branch of the service is of the
first importance, alteution has been
specially directed not only for the im
provement of the weather forecasts,
but tfceir wider distribution, particu
larly in the agricultural districts.
The weather and temperature
flaga in use by the weather bureau
ace /five in number: (I) a white flag to
indicate fair weather ; (2). a blue flag
for rain or snow ; (3) a white and
blue flag, colors arranged horizontally,
vhite above and bine below, to indi
cale local rains; (4) a.triangular flag
?trtfee temperature pennant, which
*f"?hoi8ted above either of ;the fore
going symbole indicates higher tem
perature, and if below, lower tempera
ture; aud lastly, the ( ) white flag
with black square in centre, to indi
V cdte cu(d waves.
(?ai?y ?ottou region reports, con
Slating of maximum and minimum;
^temperatures aud rainfall, made by
- special observers located a? ?iardee
wille, Green Pond, Kingstree, St
V?eorge* and St Matthew's at 6
?1.? from April 15 {to November 30.
each year, are telegraphed to this
office, where they are tabulated, and
means telegraphed to other cotton re
gion centres and to all cotton ex
changes. Cotton region bulletins are
posted daHy at the rooms of the ex
changes and other places in this city
3ujing the period of observations.
The river service established at
Camden, Cheraw, Effiugham, Mount
Holly, N. 0., Nichols, Tiller's Ferry
aud Wateree, S. 0. for the benefit of
rice planters and stock raisers, is
maintained throughout the year
Observations are made daily at 8 A.
M?,-75th meridian time, consisting of
the measurement of rainfall, direction
of wind, state of weather and height
of water, the zero of the river gauges
.bei ngs lesinai ly located at the extreme
flow water ma-ks. During the flood
.season, aud when occasion warrants,
-special bath-tins are issued, giving
the probable limits of high water at
places mentioned. It is intended ic

Aherr ships' barometers (both aneroid
or mercuria!) with the weather bureau
-6ta$id'd.
?liiose wishing to learn of the tem
perature^ precipitation, humidity, or
other climatic conditions ot any sec
lion can obtain the data by applying
tto this office! Invalids contemplat
ing journeys in the interest of .health,
-and who desire to learn, with refer
ence to a particular piace, whether
4he air is colder, warmer* dryer or
inore humid than th^ir place of abode
can%dso cciamunicate in likeman

The raWmatioiicontained in the
official v. ^riciis at tliia office will be
.cheerfully p??t? at the disposal of
anyone wishing^** consuVtbem in
reference to agriculture, business or
jscience.
Farmers can obtain information
-relating to crop conditions through
out the country, the dates on which
the last frost in spring, or the first
iiost in autumn has occurred in the
past, and also most likely to occur in
ihe future, the frequency and inten
sity of rainfall, etc. in case the
data are not at hand they will be se
cured through the proper oilioial
channels.
In this vicinity the display of trie
<rold wave signal does not always in
dicate freezing temp?ratures ; the
flag is hoisted for a decline of 1D? or
more to a tern pe? ature of 4!;i0 or less.
In the spring and autumn the flag is
also used as a fVost symbol. Since
plants ihr? w off much more heal than
other objects it frequently happens
that their temp?ratures are '2? to 16?
lower than the readings of thermom
eters suspended but a ?ew ?V-ct above
them, and Ihe ice-spicui<e, or frost,
will form upon them. Such corali
lions may occur with an air tempera
lure of or less ; a gentle wind, a
low dew point (or temperature at
which dew will form) and a cloudless
sky.
The weather maps, which, until a
compara! ively recent date, have only
been issu?d at Washington, are now
issued at many stations of the weath
er bureau, the Charleston station in
cluded, and are considered a most
important feature of the service, a*
their usefulness is being appreciated
by an ever widening circle. H?ey
not only contain the forecasts, l .*
also the data on which they are
based ; so that ti^y may be studied j
and per.-onal conclusions drawn by i
everyone engaged in any profession j
or business affected by the weather, {
and this includes nearly all classes of I
business.
As the department is now ?nd?av- |
oring to place these mape where they ?
can be tieed by farmers, the follow- j
ing explanation may not be out of ?
place.
The data embodied in the maps
issued by the weather bureau are the
air pressure, temperature, at 8 o'clock
A. AL, 75th meridian time, the mini- j
mum temperature, wiud direction and ?
velocity, t be character of the weather
at the hour of observation on which
the map is based, aod the amount of
rain cr snow. Ae soon as the chart
ing of tbese data is. completed the
isobars (liaei connecting places or
embracing sections of equal air pres
sure) ar? drawn for eaah tenth of p-j
inch ; isotherms (dfotted liue8^?0n.
uecting places ha fog the p?me de
gree of temperature) ar~dra^n for
each ten degrees ; {he 8ecticn or
sections of coun*>y having the high.
est or l^^Tair pressures are mark
? ^^ctrvely, %U$f?*or ?' Low. ?
} <c former is anti-cyc?otvic and the
latter cyclonic in its effects, or, in
other words, the area covered by a
high pressure of air usually has clear
and cool or cold weather, whereas the
reverse is the case in advance of and
surrounding an area of low pressure,
where raiu or snow and cloudiness,
with a comparatively high tempera
tuie, prevail.
The drift of the atmosphere being
from west to east, the charting o?
these cyclonic and anti cyclonic areas,
by isobars, is necessary to show at a
glance their respective centres, aud
the direction in which they are head
ing, graphically portrayed by the cur
vature of tie several oubr*ken luiee,
and by \he. arrow ?ooww?i?ke wiiit?
direction, the air flowing into the
"low" with a spiral inward motion
contrary to the movements of the
hands of a watch, and out of a
"high" with the hands of a watch.
After a little study on the part of the
intelligent observer, it is evident that
the nearer the areas of high and low
pressure are to each other, and the
greater the difference i" the pressure,
the more rapid will be the flow of air
from the greater to the lesser ?>res
sure. The isotherms (temperature
lines) vary according to the isobars
If a low-pressure area is advancing
eastward over the middle latitudes,
and a high pressure area is moving
eastward from the far west or noith
; west, the isotheims wil4 assume to
ward the perpendicular-; if the con
! ditions are static, i. e , that there is
I but little variation in the pressure,
the isotherms will appear in a nearly
j horizontal position, according to the
latitude.
Cold waves, weaiher and tempera
ture changes, the probability of thun
der storms or other severe local
storms are easily located by giving
the daily weather maps a moment's
study. The several laws of storms
will gradually unveil themselves to
the mind of the student of the map,
and the apparently unintelligible
mass of lines and figures of a day be
comes the guide for business transac
tions of any character. The severe
local storms may occur in the south
east quadrant of a low pressure area ;
that the winds will back from south
west to northwest if a low pressure
area moves south of a given place,
or shifts from northeast to southwest
as the storm moves north of a place ;
that the temperatale rises in advance
of a storm, and fails after it has pass
ed ; that storms generally move in
the direction of the greatest rainfall,
ot snowfall, or where the-air is most
humid, are all facts evolved by a
study of the maps
The observer is desirous of extend
ing Hie usefulness of the local weath
er bureau to the citizens of Charles
ton and vacinity, for whose benefit it
has been established.

The Woinon Q? ?e tritile
Ages
Thtir Culture und Refinement.
Theodore Child in Harper's B-*zir.
In reality, it is perhaps doubtful
whether modern civilization tends to
produce women of euch strength of
character ai J such intellectual and
social acquirements as those who
were the wives and daughters of the
lords and captains of the feudal ages
The att and the literature of the fif
teenth century have immortalized
women who remain models of virtue
and refinement. In the Middle Ages
also, if we only took the trouble to
study them, we should find that the
women of the Latin nations were ex
tremely cultivated, and most intimate
ly and affectionately associated with
the lives and the cares of their lords
At least such appears to have been
the case in France, if we may judge
from the romances, the chronicles,
and the poetry of the twelfth, thir
teenth, and fourteenth centuries, and
from the evidence of the splendid
monuments of architect ore and the
grand old toml>3 which have pre
se-ved the memories of so many ladies
in sculptured effigies and eloquent,
epitaphs. Like the model of femi
nine good breeding depicted by Cas
tig'ione at the court of Urbino, the
ladies of the Middle Ages had not
only the charm of delicate education
and varied accomplishments, but also
manly sentiments, a love of justice, a
marked hatred of hypocrites and cow
ards, and fine independence of char
acter. Their conversation must in
deed have had great charm, seeing
that their feudal lords remembered it
even in the heat of battle, and looked
forward to its solace as one of the
sweets of victory Thus Jotnville
relaies in his chronicle that at the
battle of Li Massoure, b?*ing hardly
preKsed by the Saracens, the Count
of Soissons, who was near him, said,
as he plicked on his horse and
charged the enemy, "Seneschal, let
the scoundrels yell, for by the (?uoi'o
Dien (as he was wont to swear), yon
and 1 shall talk about this dtv a ?'aio
m the ladies' chambers'' ; or, as if
read* in the quaint old French that
Joinville wrote, "Seti*M*chaus, hysons

A good Slory is related of the Hon.
B. Law'.ess, a former member of the
^?VVt?ville bar, and who came to this
^ity from Glasgow, Ky., says the
Chicago Press. Ile was a "long
winded" talker, and when he aro?e to
make an argument he didn't know
when to stop. On one occasion he
was making a speech before Judge
Bailard, in the United States court,
f ile bad spoken. eeveraj hours, and
the judge 8.nd everybody else were
thoroughly tired out, though they
were helpless. At last Judge Bal
lard beckoned his brother, Jack Bal
lard, to him, and implored him to stop
Lawless if he could.
"QU, that's easy enough," replied
the brother. "I'll stop him inside of
three minutes."
There was a great deal of curiosity
to 6ee how this could be accom
plished, as the orator seemed to be
nowhere near the end of his speech
Jack Baiiard took a pencil and a
sheet of paper and wrote :
"My Dear Colonel : As soon as
you finish your magnificent argument
I would like you toj?in mein the
clerk's office in ? bumper of fine1 old
bourbon "
The note was handed to the orator, I
who paused at the end of a soaring
period, drew his glasses from his
pocket and read the note. He put it
in his pocket and said :
"And, now, if it please your honor,
and gentlemen ?f the jury, 1 leave
the case with yoa."
Ile (picked np ?fois hat and was in
the ?eierk'e onice in about a minute.
The Story of a Famous Phrase.
Identical theeghts and identical
forms may be original in many minds.
The oration of our day which has
taken its place among the few classics
of eloquence is Lincoln's short speech
at Gettysburg. Vite phrase most
often quoted from it is "that govern
ment for the people, of the people,
and by the people shall not perish
frem the earth " Porter's Rhetorical
Reader was published in J S31 ; in
1839 it was in its fifty-second edition.
From this edition 1 quote the follow
eng sentence for an "exercise,"
entitled * New Social Order io
America," and credited to one
Douglas : ''The European emigrant
might believe himself as one trans
ported to a new world, governed by
new taws, and finds himself at once
raised in the scale of being?
the pauper is maintained by his
own labor, the hired laborer works
on his own account, and the tenant is
changed into a proprietor, while the
depressed vassal of the old continent
becomes co-legiMator and co-rukr in
a government where all power is from
the people and in the people and for
the people " The idea is not new,
though this premature Douglas may
have been the first to put it. into this
form. When Porter published these
selections of prose and poetry, Lin
coln was twentytw? years of age, and
beginning to read law. It is possible
that lie may have read this very piece
in a school-book wich was widely
circulated, and that this phrase may
have stuck in his memory It does
not matter. The phrase in his mouth
is as pure as a gold coin just dropped j
from the mint ; it was his genius that
set it in an immortal oration?
