Chicago June 27 The papers are burdened with reports of storms, cy clones, floods and winds, so general in character and so similar in having wrought damage to crops, that the con elusion is irrestible that the greatest injury has been inflicted that was ever done by irruptive storms. There has been; also, in addition to Injury to crops, great loss in cattle, to fences and outhouses, and not a little loss of life. 13 utter Co. Neb., was devastated by a tornado on Sunday. A number of people were killed, much stock lost and binall crops destroyed. The path of the storm was ten miles wide. The damage is estimated at $50,000. In the vicinity of Verona, Ia, the streams raised to a great hlght, fields completely inundated, bridges and sluices carried away. Miiny farmers abandoned the idea of raising enough corn to leed. Oats were materially in jured, many fields being red with rust, and the outlook for a crop 50 per cent, worse than ten days ago. Disiistrous storms in Missouri, along tbe line of the Hannibal & SU Joseph Railroad blew down thirty miles of tel egraph wire near Brooktield. There is a bad wash out on the Quincy, Missouri & Pacific and Chicago, liurlingtou and Quincy, trains being delayed by a washout and unsafe bridg es. Almost a cyclone visited Galesburg Sunday night, and although the damage there was not great, the neighborlug country was severely visited. The Illinois River is out of its banks and bottom. Farming for this year is im possible. The railways generally have Buffered much loss, but no severe mis haps have occurred to trains on account of the carefulness of the management. The telegraph wires are twisted, torn and grounded in every direction. In Nebraska the storm traveled 400 mile3 in six hours, being from North Platte to Omaha. Yesterday noon an angry black cloud and hot, rank atmosphere scared the people of Atchison, Ks. A part of the storm struck Kerwiu, and completely carried away buildings, barns, churches and residences. At Talmadge, Marysville, Avoca and otner points the storm wrought de struction. Crops were leveled in all di rections. At St. Joseph, Mo., the depot was un roofed, and at Lathrop several houses raised from the ground. The damage to crops in Nebraska amounts accord ing to different estimates, to from $100, 000 to $750,000. The loss in Oma hA is estimated at $30,000. The loss about Geneseo, I1L, is about 15,000. The great bulk of tho losses seem to have been on farmers and are very slow in coming to light. FOUR VERY RICIl MEN. Rufus Hatch Gives Some Vory Big Figures. "Well, there are just four of them in the fiist class. First, Vanderbilt and his sons ; second, Itussell Sage ; third. Jay Gould, and fourth, James Keene. I suppose you refer to men who have been directly connected with stock op erations. Vanderbil, and his sons, who were altogether, have got $300,000,000. lam sure that this is not overstated, for the $C0,000,000 or $70,000,000 they have in the government loans represents) their interest as it has accumulat ed. The next man is Rmstll Sage, who is richer than Could. He is worth from $00,000,000 to $75,000,000. Gould is worth from $40,000,000 to $50,000,000, and Keene about $30,000,000. They are prodigious figures. See what they rep resent or others men s losses, when you look at the present state of the stock market, and what it is tumbling to. There is about $450,000,000 to $500,- 000,000 in tbe hands of four men, who have made it all around this Stock Ex cuange, out of the gambling propensi ties and the credulity of the people," "You surprise me in rating Itussell Sage so high." "Well, it is a fact He has been a cool, steady, strong man, playing no tricks, but scooping it In all tbe time. I may say for him that if you get his name to a piece of paper it Is just as (rood as any obligation In the world Gould has been the most dextrous of the lot. Keene represents his name. In character he is' certainly a wonderfully keen man. The history of his opera tions in Lake Shore and Northwestern would be a great subject for one of your letters. He took Lak e Shore at t0 and got rid of most of it at a profit of 100 per cent., and In the same way be took Northwestern when it was almost 40 and sold most of it at about 300 per cent, profit, for it went up to 126 last year, and stands now at about 150. Vanderbilt now owns the railroad." Cincinnati Enquirer, Gentleiien Your Hop Bitters have been of (Treat raloe to me.

Science) Notes. w. n. sarrni, if. d., ru. d. The Trichina tpiralb was seen by Tiedman in 1832, and first described by Owen in 1835. The disease known as exopJdlialmlo goitre was first described by Dr. Graves of Dublin in 1835. Thales of Miletus, one ot the seven wise men of Greece, was the first per son to predict the appearance of an eclipse. The exposed sandstone and limestone formations of Kentucky, Tennessee and Alabama are honey-combed with fis sures, subterranean passages and cav erns. Leprosy, that scourge of antiquity which has been handed down to the present, was shown by Eklund of Swe den, and Hansen of Norway, to depend upon a vegetable parasite. Bodies called ptomaines, and having the composition of alkaloids, are form- tod in the cadaver by putrefactive proc esses. This fact, discovered by Selml increases the difficulties of toxicologic analysis. Paper rings pressed together under a weight of six tons, and fastened by means of bolts and steel tires, are con verted into car wheels. They are flex ible and will spring, so that if the tire sheuld run off or the train be thrown from the track, there is no danger of their breaking. A mixture of eight parts alcohol, two parts ammonia, and one part ether is very efficacious in removing grease spots from clothing. It should be ap plied, and rubbed diligently with clear water and a sponge. The chemistry of the thing is that the alcohol and ether dissolve the grease, while tho ammonia and water act as a soap in washing it away. Darwin thinks that such expressions among mankind, as the biistling of the hair under the influence of extreme terror, and the uncovering of the teeth unde furious rage can hardly be ex plained except upon the supposition that man once existed in a lower and animal-like condition. The same faci cial muscles are used in laughter by man and certain monkeys. That hab its may be inherited among animals is seen in the transmitted, but unnatural pace of horses, as, for example, can tering and ambling, the peculiar liight of certain breeds of pigeons, the point ing of young pointer cogs, and the set ting of young setteis. Mankind also may Inherit tricks or unusual ges tures. The Cost of tensions is not a small item, but an increase of cost in a legal way may bo necetsary to pre vent frands and a greater depletion of the public money. Itecent debate on the appropriation bills shed some light on tbe general aspects of tbe pension question, lo increase tbe number of clerks employed is deemed necessary, to order tbat all claims be adjudicated within three vears. Of claims pending, there are about 268 000. The cost of clerk service in the Pension Bureau, will be $1,881,950 or a little more than twice as much as heretofore. To guard agaiust fraudu lent claims, 250 special examiuors are provided, who may go to the home of claimants and examine witne&e?. If each of the agents examine 250 claims in a vear, or all of them ex amine 63,000, the work may be done in three or four years. The money that will be Deeded to satisfy clain i tbe next four years is estimated by tho commissioner as follows : , For the year ending Jane 30, 1883, $100, OOOJiOO : 1884, $150,000,000 185, 100 000,000 ; 1886, $75,000 000. making the to tal for four years, $425 000,000. Of this, more than 9300,000 will be required for arrears At the close of the year 18S0 there will be about A CO 000 pensioners, re quiring about $50,000,000 per annum. We conclude that the affairs of tbe Brooklyn Bridge Comnanv need in vrsMstion. An honorable Trustee, P, B. Koosevelt, resigns, and says that even as trustee he cannot get an insight into its management, and will not act where he cmcot know what he is responsible for, and why. Of a com pan? contracting to filrnish etel he says that it never fulfilled a contract which it had signed, or kept a promise it made, nor made an assurance it did not falsify, lif the original coo tract, the bridge should have been completed two years ago, but, afier promise on promise, it rfmains un completed to this day. It has been misplaced confidence on the side of the trustee?, and a series of gross de ceptions on tbe side of the company About,100,000 persons landed at Castle Garden iu May. On the last day of the month, eight steamers brought 5,995 immicrsnts, the largest number ever received in one day. Among them were sixty silk weavers from Marseilles, and over a hundred millers from Hamburg.

The noxious principle of typhoid fe ver is now conceded to be a parasite known as uwiyjoyvm a tetnu. Muck as a Fertilizer. The use of swamp muck for the pur poses of fertilizing, supposed by many farmers to be of value, and often pro cured by them at the expenditure of considerable labor, is shown by tbe rel port of the Connecticut Agrlcultura- Experiment Station to be of compara tively small value. .On a coarse-textured soil, which will not retain moist ure, muck may be useful, but as a di rect source of plant food it is not and its use on grass land, or newly-broken sou, is, to use the words or the report, like "carrying coals to Newcastle." It is only when the swamp Is a basin; with a small or no outlet, and receiving the "wash" from rich soil, and) pas a growth of herbage tall and rank, and a large accumulation of forest leaves, tbat the muck may be expected to con tain much of value as plant food. Tbe report also states that the best potato crops are raised on the blackest and most mucky soil, and that they never rot, and adds: "Since low, damp situations are commonly favorable to tho potato rot, this observation suggests that possibly tbe potato fungus is counteracted by some ingredient of this mucky land. It is important that the experience of those who have raised potatoes on mucky land should be made public, in order to gidde investigation on the subject." "Father, did you ever have another wife besides Mother?" "No, my boy. What possessed you to ask such a ques tion ?" Because I saw in the old fam ily Bible where you married Anno Domini, in 1835; and that isn t Mother for her name was Sally Smith." . LANGUAGE CANNOT DESCRIBE IT Mr. Robert Gould, book-keeper for Walker & Maxcy. who are lumber deal ers, recently said to our representative: "About one year ago I was taken wun the genuine sciatica.
