A telegram received here Monday

of the death in North Carolina at 3

Master. Col. McMasler had been in
failing health for some time, and for
the past week or ten days his life bad

not rally li.anently, however, and

his last.
Col. McMrster was born in Winnsboro
about seventv-thrce years sgo,
and the earlier years of his life were

After a long silence I come to the
front again. Doubtless but very few
people paid much attention to my
views on the general character of tbe
weather of^May to August, inclusive,
which were published with the April
( forecast in March, 1899. " We have
paesed through a meteorological phenomena
that will be remembered by
| many. I'll confess that the precipitation
of the last half of May and to
the 20th of June was not as great as
. was anticipated. The perturbations
of the past June was in the minimum.
( As a rule our summer solstice, generally,
always perturb our atmosphere
| enough to give us plenty of moisture,
buf it was an exception to the rule
. this year. I forecasted :hat the rainr
fall to the date mentioned above would
[ be more than we will sec in several
months to come. It has been verified.
I July was forecasted to be dry. Scat!
teiiog showers about the 21et to 24th.
^ They continued to the 27th. And
they were not general. After this
the rainfall will be light until about
I the.USth of August which has been
s verified to the letter.
j September will open with very ancotilpH
weather and continue to the
new moon, which is on the 4th. After
4 this it will gain row force ard cause
storms on the Atlantic coast from the
[ 4th to the.7th. Steady rain and gales

' the barometer will rise, followed by
clearing skies and cooler. 8th to 10th,
partly clondv with rain on the coast;
11th and 12.h, nearly cloudy with
