Ire Storm*, nnri i loads anal <y <-!«■■<•« In bi- l ollnuaal by Ilia- l int of All Tilings?—ire tlie 4'alaiua lia-s of Ilia- I'ast Va-ur an Indica tion of final Judgment? Lieut. Tottcn, who prophesies that the end of the worlal is at hand, has reason to he gra-atly encourageal by the year's cyclones, drouths, comets, sun spots, crop failures anal liminci.il dis asters, and general epidemic of disas ters by land and sea. Prof. Totteu calculated, according to his interpreta tion of Olal Testament prophecy, that the einl of the earth was due about September. We were at that time, he said, in the lltli hour and 50th minute of the earth's 12-hour day of biblical time. One of the ominous signs, says the Mi iineapulis Tribune, hm been unusual prevalence of comets during the year- The third or fourth comet in twelve mouths is now traversing the heavens. The spots on the sun, the aurora borcalis and meteoric showers which have been of unusual activity and brilliancy. Cyclones have never been so numerous as this season. In April alone 26 States were visited, and the number since January already reaches into the hundreds, with a loss of sev eral hundreds of lives and several mil lions of property. Floods have done disastrous work on the Ohio, Missis sippi and Missouri and tributaries, and the overllow of the Colorado is again significantly turning Death's Valley into an inland sea. Drouth has seriously damaged crops in every country on the globe. Hay in Eu rope arose to SSO a ton, and cattle were driven to market to keep them from starvation. Cholera is raging in Asia, Russia and Southern France. Financial disaster is prevalent in all countries. War in South America is reflected in the war-like preparations of Europe. There has been an epi demic of tires, mine and railroad dis asters, dynamite explosions and ship wrecks. Heresy trials, socialistic up risings, horrible murders and lynch ings are appropriate links in the train of evils. Finally, Prophet Wiggins caps the climax with the announcement that the Star of Bethlehem, has changed into a comet; is rapidly approaching the earth. That settles it. Ignatius Donnelly's " Kagnorok" demonstrates that the earth is a mecca for comets. Lieut. Totten and the People's Party platform have both predicted the gen eral downiall. The heavens and the earth have given forth the omens, and now Prophet Wiggins has risen from oblivion to announce that the Star of Bethelehem is on its final mission. Now turn loose the Jeremiahs and let there be rivers of tears. The Part Played by Betsy Jane. Senator Vance, writing in the Chat nnoogia Times, gives what is regarded as a version of the Governor of North Carolina to the Governor of South Carolina. As Mr. Vance is a North Carolinian himself, and thoroughly acquainted with his State's liistory t traditions and folk lore, we may pre sume that he has it about right. The Senator tells the story in a fe licitous style, but we can only glance hastily at the part which is preliminary to the great scene itself, says the Spri agtield Republican. Many years ago in the early days of Statehood, the Governor of North Carolina put a clean shirt and a pair )f socks into his saddlebags, mounted his horse and rode away to the south through the pine forests to pay a long promised visit to the Governor of South Carolina. In due time he was wel l corned by his brother Governor with old fashioned plantation hospitality. When asked how he felt, the distin guished traveler replied: Thank you, Governor, I am tired, sleepy, hungry and sober. It seems superfluous to add that the Governor of North Carolina was im mediately made comfortable and all his wants abundantly supplied. The next afternoon was spent by the two Governors in the shade of the great roomy veranda. They were happy with corn cob pipes and long twists of home made tobacco, while between their low, easy bottom rockers, within arm's reach of each, was a brimming pitcher of apple toddy, the mellow fruit resting on the surface of the di vine tipple. The two Governors talked cotton, horses, politics, and run away slaves, for hours, now and then sinking into dozes and waking up to take another drink. Late in the after noon Betsy Jane appeared on the porch. She was the good wife of the host, and she knew all about the fail ings of Governors. Betsy Jane con cluded that the two cocks were full enough, so she slipped away the pitcher, still half full, and in its place put a piggin of cool spring water, with a yell JW gourd. Then : Though sound asleep, the Governor of North Caroliua felt that something was wrong. Every nerve in him cried out against the presence of a hostile element, and he awoke. His pertuibed soul had not deceived him. The pitcher of toddy was gone. He immediately awakened his host, who courteously inquired: What is the matter? Don't you see what is the matter, said the guest, looking indignantly :tt the i>iggiu and the gourd. Indeed, I see nothing wrong, said the now distressed host. l'lease tell me wliat is the matter, my dear governor. The devil you say! Nothing wrong, indeed! Igo to sleep with a pitelier of toddy before me; I wake up and find a piggin of spring water; and tlie Governor of South Carolina tells me in his own house that he sees nothing wrong in that! Well, well! All I have to say sir, said the Governor of North Carolina, rising with a very great, but rather unsteady dignity, is, that it is a d—d long time between drinks. Oh, said the Governor of South Car olina, as the situation Hashed on him. I see; that's Betsy Jane. She means stop, and we're done for the day. I am sorry I ean't bring the pitelier back. 1 humbly beg your pardon, governor, but maybe there's a Betsy Jane at your house, and maybe you know how it is yourself. The oH'cnded dignity of the Gover nor of North Carolina dissolved slow ly into a genial smile of intelligent comprehension, and, solemnly wink ing one eye, he fell—either upon the neck of his host or upon the porch tloor, tradition does not say which— exclaiming, you bet, old boy; you bet. All this happened nearly one hun dred years ago, yet according to Sena tor Vance, tradition has failed to re cord the interesting part played by Betsy Jane in that celebrated little comedy, while it has kept alive the wicked saying of the Governor of North Carolina as a convenient device for stimulating the hospitality of a forget ful host. A MATHEMATICAL FABLE. ■low u Wive and l'ollic King Would Learn tbc Age of III* (attests. Los Angeles Sunday World. There was once a wise king who was awfully curious. He was possessed of a desire to know everything and was continually asking questions. Indeed, his thirst for knowledge carried him so that he wanted to know the age of every person he met. But, being a king, he was exceedingly polite, and would resort to strategy to gain his ends. One day there came to the court a gray-haired professor, who amused the king greatly. Hte told the monarch a number of things that he never knew before, and the king was delighted. But finally it came to the point when the ruler wanted to know the age of the professor, so he thought of a mathematical problem. " Ahem!" said the king, " I have an interesting sunt for you; it is atrial in mental arithmetic. Think of the number of the month of your birth." Now, the professor was 60 years old, and had been born two days before Christmas, so he thought of 12, De cember being the twelfth month. " Yes," said the professor. " Multiply it by 2," continued the king. " Yes." " Add 5." " Yes," answered the professor doing so. " Now, multiply that by 50." " Yes." " Add your age." " Yes." " Substract 305." " Yes," " Add 115." " Yes." " And now," said the king, " might I ask what the result is?" " Twelve hundred and sixty," re plied the professor, wonderingly. " Thank you," was the king's re sponse. "So you were born in I)e« ceniber, 60 years ago, eh?" " Why, how in the world did you know?" cried the professor. " Why," retorted the king, " from your answer—l,26o. The month of your birth was the twelfth and the last two figures give your age." " Ha, ha, ha," laughed the professor. " Capital idea. " I'll try it on the next person I meet. It's such a polite way of finding out people's ages." THE question, " What does a man buy when lie purchases the title to a farm?" has often been asked but not satisfactorily determined. From the latest decision on the subjeot, says the Globe-Democrat it is plain that he buys the ground of course, and all the buildings erected on it, whether they are mentioned or not. He also buys all the fences, but not material once used, then taken down and laid aside, nor material purchased for a new fence, unless these are spe cially mentioned. He also buys all adjuncts necessary to the farm except implements and machinery. For in stance, if there is a pile of bean poles cut and once used they are the seller's property, unless specified as sold. Standing trees and trees that have fallen or blown down go with the ground, but if cut down and made, into cord word, they become personal and must be specified in the sale. A. W.

BOBBERY OF A BANK. SUCCESSFUL RAID ON AN ORE CON BANK. Attempted Aliirdcr by the Desper adoes The I'residetll of the Hank Shot -They bet About »I,INH)~nc. t'arlhy Oue of the liuiig. J'hree men Monday afternoon rob bed the hank of Milton, a small town in Oregon, ten miles south of Walla \\ alia, and attempted to murder A. llopsou, president of the hank. At 3 o'clock the men, mounted on horses, rode up to the hank and dis mounted. One held the horses while the other two stepped into the hank and advanced to the cashier's window. In the hank at the time were l'resi dent A. llopson, Cashier N. A. Davis, Assistant Cashier W. llopson. The cashier was busy counting money when the men came in and paid no attention to them. As soon as the men reached the window they drew their pistols and one of them tired two shots so close to the cashier that he fell to the tloor by the concussion. The bullets struck President llopson, one entering the left side and the other passing through his right arm. The men demanded the mouey of As sistant Cashier Hopson, and he handed out the cashier's tray containing $11!) 1.G5. The robbers backed out of the door, keeping their pistols leveled at the men in the bank. Upon reach ing the sidewalk they mounted their horses and sped away at a rapid rate. There were but very few people on the street at the time the robbers rode up to the bank, and they attracted but little or no attention. As soon as the pistol shots were heard a large crowd was attracted, and as they came run ning to the bank the robbers were seen to mount their horses and ride away. President Hopson was removed to a drug store across the street and medical assistance secured. His wounds are pronounced not to be fa tal. A mounted posse was immedi ately organized by Deputy Sheriff Richie, and within 15 minutes after the robbery they were after the rob bers. The men were tracked to Dry creek, several miles west of Milton, when owing to the dense fog all traces of them were lost. Another posse was organized and s'tarted for the Blue mountains. A posse was organized at Wallula, to watch the ferry crossing the Columbia river, as it is supposed that the men aro making that way. Parties resembling the robbers have been seen about Milton, Weston and Athena for the past week, and it was thought by many that they had been planning to make an attack on the banks of each town. On Monday they had their horses sharply shod in a blacksmith shop at Miltun, when they mounted and rode up to the bank. A man in Milton stated to the officials here this evening that he identified one of the men as one of the Mc- Carthys who had been implicated in the lioslyn bank robbery. The robbery was not much of a sur prise to the officers of either the city or county. Several months ago the officers were warned that armed men were near tho city, supposedly for the purpose of robbing the banks here. During September a man and woman camped on Mill creek, 15 miles east of the city. They had several horses and a large amount of ammunition. They went about heavily armed, which caused much excitement among the campers from the city along the creek. The woman is called tho female cow boy, because she was frequently seen in the city at night attired in man's clothes. Ten miles Illyrb. One of the most interesting experi ments with balloons that has ever been undertaken was that of Messrs. Hermite and Besancon at Paris Vaugirard last spring. They suc ceeded in sanding a balloon to the unprecedental elevation of sixteen thousand metres, or about ten miles! There were no people in the balloon, but it carried a variety of self-register ing instruments designed to record the temperature, the atmospheric pressure, etc. The little balloon was started on its lofty trip about noon, when the air was remarkably still and clear. It rose rapidly, and iu three quarters of an hour has attained an elevation of ten miles, at which height it remained for several hours. It was thero subjected to an atmo spheric pressure only about one-eight as great as that at the surface of the earth, and M. Hermite explains its floating for so long a time at a constant height by supposing that the tempera ture does not vary sensibly with the elevation of the lloating body after the latter has attained an altitude where there remains no trace of watery vapor. But toward six o'clock, when with the decline of day the temperature began rapidly to fall, the balloon started back toward the earth, ar riving witli a gentle motion, which did not disturb the instruments it carried, at eleven minutes past seven, at Chanvres, near Paris-Vaugirard, from which it had started.— Youth'* Com panion. THEY started in to try a man for beating his wife at Colfax, and after a portion of the evidence was in, his lawyer found he had never been ar raigned or allowed to plead, so the case was dismissed. THANKSGIVING DAY. The President by Proclamation, Set* Apart Thursday, Vor. :IU. The President lias issued the follow ing Thanksgiving proclamation: "By the President of the United States of America proclamation: While the American people should every day remember with praise and thanksgiving the divine goodness and niercy which has followed them since their beginning as a nation, it is fitting that one day in each year should ho especially devoted to contemplation of the blessings we have received from the hand of God, and to a grateful ac knowledgement of His loving kindness, therefore, I, Grover Cleveland, Presi dent of the United States, do hereby designate and set apart Thursday, the 30th day of tlie present month, No vember, as a day of thanksgiving and praise, to be kept by the people of our land. One day let us forgo our ordi nary work and employments and as semble in our usual places of worship' where we may recall all that God has done for us, ami where from grateful hearts our united tribute of praise and song may reach the throne of grace. Let a reunion of kindred and social meeting of friends lend cheer and en joyment to duty and let generous gifts of charity for the relief of the poor and needy prove the sincerity of our thanksgiving."

Another Poliar Expedition. Mrs. Peary, of Arctic fame, says the San Francisco Examiner, is not to have a monopoly of Polar celebrity among her sex. Another lady will share the perils of the high latitudes in the company of her husband. Mrs. Peary's rival is the wife of Fridtjof Nansen, the Noawegian explorer, who sailed the other day from Christiana, bound to the Pole, or at least to the nearest approachable point to the desired goal. Mrs. Nansen is a clever and highly educated lady, who shares her husband's enthusiasm in the cause of exploration. She is a great student of Arctic literature, and has in many ways assisted her husband in the preparations for a long voyage. The ship in which Nansen sails is an interesting piece of naval architec ture. She is built of wood, but of a strength never hitherto aimed at. The frame timbers, Nansen modestly says, may be said to be well seasoned, for though cut from the gnarled oakes of Italy, they have been stored in a Norwegian dockyard during the whole lifetime of the explorer. These tim bers—the ribs of the ship—are a foot thick, and are placed only two inches apurt, the intervening spaces being filled with a special composition, so that even the skeleton of the ship would lie water tight should the planks be stripped off. Inside, the walls are lined with pitch-pine planks, alternately lour iucbes and eight I inches thick, with supports to resist ' pressure in every direction. Outside, there is a three-inch skin of oak, care fully calked and made water-tight, then covered by another skin of oak four inches thick, which in turn is in creased in a still thicker layer of the hard and slippery greeuheart. Bow and stern are heavily plated with iron to cut through thin ice. Finally, to render her fit for living in during the coldest weather the water tight com j partment set apart for this purpose (one of three) is lined, walls and ceiling, with layers of non-conducting material. Tarred canvas, cork, wood, several inches of felt inclosed by painted canvas, and finally a wooden wainscot, promise to effectually keep out the cold. In the roof a layer of two inches of reindeer's hair has also been introduced. The form of the vessel is as original as her material. She measures 128 feet in extreme length, thirty-six in beam, and is seventeen feet deep. With a full cargo she will draw fifteen feet, and have a freeboard of little more than three feet. She is pointed fore and aft, the stern being so formed that the propeller and rudder are deeply immersed to escape floating ice, and both these vital fittings are placed in wells which may be brought on board in case of need, or readily replaced if damaged. The hull is rounded, so that even the keel does not project materially. The form is designed so that when the icc begins to press it will not crush but lift the ship, as one might lift an egg from a table by sliding two hands under it. She is provisioned for five years, carries no alcoholic drinks, and is manned by eleven stanch sailors. STATE NEWS. Bears are plenty about Winlock. Krug's bonds now aggregate $47,- 000.

The United States geodetic survey has written to Captain Roeder, at Whatcom, to discover which of the bays known as Smuggler's cove and Deep Water bay should be called Reil's harbor. The captain, after a residence of 40 years, has never heard of lteil or his harbor. The Indians call Smuggler's cove Memin Peslacken, and Deep Water bay Hix Peslacken. The Democrat-leader of Port Ange les, says that during the severe winds that prevailed in the straits recently, quantities of oysters were washed out on the beach, indicating that there are large beds in tho vicinity of that city. The oysters are much larger than the ordinary varieties found in the Sound, some measuring over four inches in diameter, and resembling those found in tho Chesapeake bay. The placer machinery at Pasco is ex pected to be set in niotiou this week. Tho appliances consist of a Bucyrus dredger and Bennett amalgator, locat ed on barges and operated by a power ful steam engine.

They calculate to dredge to a depth of 20 feet below the level of the water where the dredger stands, but will not at tempt to go down to bedrock. Kelso coal is looking up. B. £. Loomis, of San Francisco, president of the Anchor Coal Company, which is interested in a coal mine about two miles above the town, and on which about |60,000 has been expended, has just been there and au early resump tion of work on the mine is predicted. So much has been done that it will not be more than a few months until the output will be carried down the Cowlitz on barges to Portland. The coal isa good quality of lignite. In the circuit court at Snohomish Eddie Linstrom, of Stanwood, has filed suit by his guardian ad litem, N. O. Linstrom, against Elnar Juel, also of Stanwood, for damages in the amount of |20,250. The damage complained of was the shooting of the plaintiff by the defendant near Stauwood. The boy, it is stated, was stealing fruit on the farm of defendant when Juel shot him, the shot taking effect in the boy's face, neck and body. A criminal action is also pending against Juel. Sam Jacobson, the Davenport ranch er, has succeeded in keeping his where abouts a secret. His creditors are still hunting for something to lay their hauds upon, but Samuel seems to have taken away pretty much everything of value. It lias been learned that he had about $2,800 bur ied in the ground near his residence, but his flight was not too sudden for him to remember it was there and to take it along. It is estimated that the total amount which he took away with him was in tlio neighborhood of SIO,OOO. A. P. Cohn, of Fairhaven thus de scribes a new kind of hop pole he saw at Sacramento: "It displaces the old-fashioned pole altogether and is a great success. The new way of train ing hops is to set up poles the same as you would a telegraph pole, and about the same distance apart. A wire is then Btretched along the tops and to this wire are fastened small cords or twine which reach tho ground, at the proper distance, and arc fastened to the earth by pegs. The invention is patented and is somewhat expensive at first, but I am told it pays many times over in the long run and it is growing rapidly in favor in the hop districts of California." BENJAMIN HA UNISON carried New York in 1888 by 14,000 plurality. Eight months after ho l>ecame Presi dent the Democrats carried it by 21,- 000 and a year later by 48,000.

The first town school in this coun try was opened for business in Hart ford, Conn., in 1642. The first schools for the separate education of girls were founded during the Roman Empire, During .the tenth century the Sara cens had 17 universities, Cordova being the chief. The first law degree is believed to have been conferred by the University of Paris in 1119. The Ragged School Union, for the instruction of very poor children, was founded in 1844. Newton's application of algebra to theoretical and practical mathematics was made in IGGB. There are 141 schools of theology in this conntry, with 686 professors and 6,989 students. The increase ot schools in every country has generally been attended by a decrease of crime. The world in 1888 had 791,424 schools for elementary instruction with 50,816,000 pupils. Arithmetical notation by the nine digits and zero was used in Hindoo stan in the sixth century. In 1891 the sunt of $0,819,208 was donated to the colleges of this country for various purposes. DI RINO the ten years from 1881 to 1891 the office-holders have increased under the federal government from 124,640 to 189,488, or just 58,848. While the population and business of the government during that time have increased very rapidly it hardly seems probable that it has grown so fast as to warrant the increase ot 6,000 office holders annually in the decade. Dur ing the past thirty years the various departments have been receptacles for political driftwood for whom positions have been created and, who give but very little in return for tho salaries they draw. There is a chance for the vigorous use of the official ax and broom in nearly every part of the government service and the sooner the work is done the better.
