Tornado Wabnikg. Prof. Walter H. Smith, president of the Astro Meteorological Association, of Montreal, sends through Mr. N. Plum- adore the prediction of a general storm area during the hist week or ten days of June in which he says : "On June 24th and 26th respectively the planets Mer cury and Venus are at their perihelion points. AS past records show'that some tof the most disastrous toraadbetv .cyclones seasons when only ono of thesb planets has been nearest tne sun, l fear tnat there is every probability of a recurrence oi grave atmospheric disturbance this year. An imperlect weatner recora at tne more recent perihelion dates shows that on August 3, 1883, mercury wasat perihelion, and on the 2nd a cylone wrecked Snow flake, Man.; 3rd, a great waterspout burst at Shelby, Ohio, and a heated term with auroral displays lasted from the 4th to the 7th, followed by high winds, rain and a cool reaction. On July 21, 1883, with mercury at perihelion, a terrible tornado wrecked Minnesota and adjacent parts, doing $130,000 damage in Dodge county alone, witn tornadoes as lar nortn as Korel, Canada, nouses tnere being wrecked on the 22nd. On August 22, 1883, Venus was in perihelion, and great heat was felt over the Eastern States and Canada on 20th and 21st, sunstrokes be ing numerous. On 21st a great tornado at Rochester, .Minnesota, tore up 135 dwelling houses and killed 26 persons; 22nd, hurricane at Ottawa, Ontario. On July 7, 1884, mercury was in perihelion and great heat was experienced on 5 and 6th; with heayy storms over Iowa, Wis consin and New York States, and on 7th, a waterspout drowned persons and swept crops and houses away in Madison coun ty, Arkansas. ' ' ' : My special forecast for the last eight or ten days of June, 1885, reads :.. "Op pressive heat high - Winds, thunder showers and. unsettled weather in the North-Eastern United States and Canada, Tornadoes probable in "tomato sections. notably the Western ana boutn- western States near the Mississippi Valley, fol lowed bv a reactionary cool to very cool period of high barometric pressure with local frosts in Northern and Middle sec tions.

After looking at the map . presented in this issue by Gwyn's Western North Car olina Land Agency the map drawn by Mr. Gwyn himself the question need no longer he asked "how is Asheville to be reached ?" The map shows that Asheville is already a veritable railroad centre, with some spokes of the radiating arms yet to be fitted in. The perfection of communi cation already -attained is a surprise to those even among us who have not looked into the matter. No wonder it will sur prise those abroad. . A study of the map will show direct connection with all parts of the country. Asheville is now Within 24 hours of New York, 48 of New Orleans, 22 of Louisville and Cincinnati, 30 of St. Louis and Chicago, and soon will be with in 12 of Charleston and ii of Savannah; and in the winter and spring months will be found to be in the direct line of Florida travel by- the nearest and Quickest routes, ifc-. .rryxir norc arci? e'trflSgeucea ' land agent, has made hiaryfiidely and fa vorably known, merits favorable considera tion for this new illustration of his skill and enterprise. ' '; The Way to Get Well . Is not to try every new remedy that is brought to your notice, but first aacertain what is best suited to your case and then begin its use, with a determination to give it a fair trial, and do not throw it aside to try everything you see advertis ed as having wrought some . miraculous cure, for in nearly every instance it will aggravate the disease, but if you have dyspepsia, indigestion, neuralgia, bead- aches, chills and fevers, &&, give the Seven Springs "Iron Alum Mass" a fair trial, and unmistakable bencnts will be the results.

" ' ; ,' . Dr.- J7 ,A. Burroughs. - in .a '"recent visit to Virginia, was near" the scene of the Jeter-Terry tragedy; 7His Informa tion is interesting, but we can use : only so much as refers -to the lynching of young Terrjr. That atrocity was with, out the participation of the Jeter family and repugnant to their sentiments.' They were ready, to leave the punishment to be meted out, if any,-to -the law. But they, in common with' the majority of the community, were cognizant of the irresponsibility of Terry, who. was known to be subject to periods of insanity, a man dangerous.to be at lirrge, but not wicked from malice or premeditation He had been in the Asylum, and it was proposed soon to return him to the same place of security. The indignation of the people of the county in which the trages dy took place is aroused, and will not be appeased until the chief perpetrators are arrnted. Large rewards are . offered, botn by the State and county authorities; and it is believed that the eye of justice has fallen upon the guilty parties. .,. The only extenuation made for the deed is the acquittal of the slayer of Car rington, very shortly before the lynching of 7 Terry, lie" was acquitted on the ground of insanity. The, same counsel who had defended Johnson was engaged for the defence of Terry. The populace would not or could not discriminate be tween real insanity and - feigned or tem porary madness, and were determined in a'purpose to permit no more judicial farces. - i , I For the Asnevnte Citizen.
