A TALK WITfl PBOF. F. W. VERY Is Productive of Interesting Information on the Weather. J1ESOLTS EXPECTED FEOH THE CAMERA A -risit to the Allegheny Observatory and a chat with the professors "who dwell among the stars," is always prolific of new information about that ot which man knows eo little the world o'er head. One of these trips was made by a Dispatch reporter yesterday. The Observatory was deserted. Sottly knocking, then going inside, a stroll through the workshop, the different libraries and at last into the rotunda where the creat telescope is situated failed to disclose the men who flirt with the man in the moon. Mr. Brashear had left his home lor the city previous to the reporter's visit He had been chasing the sun's spots with a camera around the yard back of the bonse, endeavoring to catch their likeness. He was testing a new heliostat, or instrument to make the sun's rays ttand still, according to etymology. The instrument is beine made for Prof. Simon Uewcomb, superin tendent of the American EphemerU, a pub lication issued from 'Washington Observ atory. CHASrS'G SUJTBEAMS ALSO. Prof. F. "W. Vezy was also chasing sun beams among theclo ver.but was at last caught in his study rapt in thought and eschewing the results of his observations. In achat the professor gave some interesting facts and food for a good deal of solid thinking. The unprecedent rainfall came natur ally to be the first topic broached. Pro Very said, that continued rainfalls in one location were often due to a simple law of nature. The first rain, falling, cools the lower atmosphere and the ground underneath. If warm moist clouds from the South float o'er this spot they are con densed, and this process or rains lollowing rains continues until some great upheaval of the atmosphere drives the moist clouds by and gives the location a chance to regain its normal temperature. This talk naturally led to the relation of the weather to astronomy and the possibil ity of its being foretold "by astronomical ob servations. THE OSXT SCIENTIFIC THEOBY. Prof. Very said that the only theory of any scientific weight at all in regard to the possibility of the planets affecting the amount ot rainfall was, that the position of large planets like Jupiter might have a great influence on the changes in the spots on the sun, and thus affect solar radiation, and there was a possibilitv of a remote con nection between these planetary positions and the condition of the weather. It has been found that the spots on the sun produce the least heat and they, taken as a key, may be subject to unknown causes and surrounded by influences that control solar radiation. The radiation, of course, con trols the condition of the atmosphere and it the weather. These influences on the bun's spots and they on radiation may be due to the posi tion of the planets, and if so, by astronom ical observation it would be possible in the years to come to predict the weather by in struments and observations. This would only apply to the general changes over cer tain large districts and local causes, such as the condition of the soil, etc., which could furnish the key to the calculations for each point THE CAXEBA MAX X0 IT. The camera is looked forward to as a source of untold surprises in this direction, as it catches tbngs that the eye cannot com prehend. It gathers the impressions of an object as long as exposed, and with the ac cumulation ot there impressions makes it possible to catch much more than with the naked eye, which gathers only one impres sion. The Professor thinks the "Weather Bureau should have more appropriation and be given more scope. As he talked of the pos sibility that astronomy and the weather night be kindred subjects, he warmed up end said that, though science had not yet i reached any solution of the question, there irere great possibilities,and no one could tell what might be the result of continued re search and astronomical inventions yet tobe brought to light. Xeavinz the subject of the weather, the reporter spoke of the length of the days at this season of the year and the Professor disclosed many interesting things in regard to them unknown to the massesT Last Fri day was the longest day of the year, or the time when the sun reached its most north ern point Friday morning the sun rose at 4:29 A. H, and bet at 7:34 P. M., making the day 15 hours and 5 minutes Ion?. The length of the days will not change a minute until about a week from lait Friday. In September it changes about a minute a day as the sun goes farther South. A MYSTERY CLEARED UP. Coroner McDowell Invcstlrntes the Aban doning of n Dend Infant Nothing of Criminal Character In It. The dead body of a child, which gave promise ot developing a murder mystery, was found on the New Brighton road, in Allegheny, yesterday afternoon. The dis covery, which was made by Officer Ken nedy, caused the police authorities and Cor oner McDowell a great deal ot work, but turned out to be merely indiscretion on the part of the father of the infant The policeman when he found the body in a pepper box lying in a ditch on the road made an investigation and found that the box had been thrown out of a buggy by a man who had driven along the road a few minutes before the box was found. He im mediately secured a description of the rig and telephoned it to the Mayor's office. De tective Samuel McUJure started out at once to look for the man and found him near Woods' Kun. He placed the man under arrest and drove to the Mayor's office with him. On the way the man said his name was William Hood, and that he was a farmer living at DeHaven station on the Pittsburg and Western Railroad. The child, he said, was not alive when born, and he intended to bury it in the Bellevue Cem etery, bnt chanced his mind and threw it into a ditch. He was about to return for the body when he was arrested. Detective McClure put the man in the lockup and notified the Coroner, the child having been sent to Lowry's undertaking rooms. Last night, Chiet ot Police Kirsch ler and Coroner McDowell investigated the matter and found that the child had not been alive and no crime had been com mitted. The Coroner immediately ordered the release of Hood, and instructed him to bury the body as soon as possible. The wife of Mr. Hood is seriously ilL She called at the Mayor's office in Alle gheny several days ago and entered snit against a man who had threatened to knock her brains out with an ax. Her husband has been greatly worried over the affair, and in speaking of his action last nicht-said he could not account for it. He did not in tend to do anything wiong, and after he had thrown the box containing the body out of his buggy he relented and started back to get it Mr. Hood is well known on the North Side, and it is said that he recently inherited a fortune of $500,000. NATIONAL PLUMBERS. The Programme and Significance of Their Great Convention. ABOUT 300 OP THOSE WHO CHARGE Will Gather in a Gas City, the Paradise of Men Who Plumb. HOW THEI WILL ENJOI THE1E OUTING. A MYSTERIOUS WATCH. Ita Work Deftly Concealed Beneath the Stem A Puzzle How It la Operated-. The Only One in Amerlcn. Mr. I. E. Isaacs, of 419 Smithfield street, is the possessor of a watch which is a nov elty in that line. St Paul says that faith without works is dead, but here is a watch that hasn t anv works that anyone can see, save the hands, and they point the time ac curately; and, as a time keeper it certainly isn't dead. In appearance it is a metallic frame with a glass center, in which are two hands which appear to have no connection with anything except the glass. On opening the border, however, very complete, bnt minute machinery is seen at the base of the stem, but still no connection can be traced between the works and the hands. Some people have suggested that the chain forms a circuit from a battery con cealed in the Jregion of the small of the wearer's back, and that the watch is oper ated by electricity. One man gave it as his opinion, after critical investigation, that the watch was a device of the devil. The curiosity is called the "Mysterious Watch," and its value consists mainly in its rarity, being, it is said, the onlv one in the United States, which fact, like the rarity of an old volume or a picture that cannot be duplicated, makes value. It was brought from Paris, and cost $50, and the cost is certainly not in the case. THE MOOT COUBT. SUEPEISED BY FIEfi. The Dress of n Young; Lady Ignited While She Was Ont Walking;. A peculiar accident happened on fifth avenue, near Market street, about 230 o'clock yesterday atternoon. As a young lady passed Market alley somebody threw a lighted match which caught in the folds of her blue ratine dress. The dress took fire and instantlv blazed up above her head. S. P. Boberts, of E. P. Boberts & Sons, and two other men ran to the lady's assist ance. They hastily laid her on the pave ment and tramped ont the flames. Her dress had the side burned out of it, but the lady escaped injury. She went into Hugus & Hacke's where her dress was fixed up. She refused to give her name. EXIGHTS OF ST. JOSEPH. A Trial Held In the High Tower of the Court Bonn Yesterday. A novel and interesting meeting of the Law Students' Association was held yester day afternoon in the Court House. Owing to their inability to obtain the regular meet ing room, the stndents decided upon hold ing Moot Court in the topmost room of the tower. There they held one of the most in teresting trials in the whole series. The case was that of the Commonwealth versus Doc. Harris. The defendant was charged with embezzlement of 555,000 from his former employes. The prosecuting at torney was J. C. Carney. He was ably assisted by Messrs. Goss and Amnion. The defendant was represented bv the promising young attorneys, Messrs. W. S. Ashworth, James McKirdy and P. V. McMullen, who, in a series of powerful and eloquent speeches, succeeded in obtainingan acquittal ot their client The locaf organization of the Master Plumbers' Association of the United States held a meeting last night to complete the programme of the Seventh Annual Conven tion of the national organization, which will be held in this city during the coming week. The meeting was held at the Seventh Avenue Hotel, and Mr. Charles H. Hum bert, President of the Pittsburg Master Plumbers' Association, occupied the chair. The programme is full of very interesting details, showing that the plumbers not only intend to accomplish agreatdealot business, but that they also mean to enjoy themselves and entertain the coming guests. Over 300 delegates are expected to be present, and they will be taken care of in the different hotels. The Seventh Avenue Hotel will be headquarters of the Natio nal Association. A number of the delegates will also bring their wives and friends along, and the programme provides for the proper entertainment of all of them. EAELT AEBIVALS. A good many are expected to arrive to morrow, bnt the convention will not go info session until Tuesday morning. McCand Iess Hall, on Wood street, has been hired for the purpose, and the session will be opened at 10 o'clock on Tuesday morning. The first day will be taken up by appoint ing the Credential Committee and the read ing of communications. The second day the meeting will receive reports from select committees, standing committees and retir ing officers. Then unfinished business will be taken up. The third day will be taken up by the reading of papers on scientific and such sub jects, bearing directly upon the plumbing business. Then the election of officers will also be taken up. On the evening of the third day the local organization will give a grand reception at Old City Hall. At 8 o'clock all the mem bers of the association and their friends will assemble in the hall to attend a musical entertainment, interspersed with speeches by prominent members of the Plumbers' Association. The mnsic will be furnished by the Apollo Quartet and the Toerge Orchestra. From 11 o'clock refreshments will be handed around, and dancing is tobe the order ot the evening. THEK THEY WILL JOLLIFY. On the fourth day all the delegates will go on an excursion by the steamer May flower. The trip will be extended into the Monongahela, Ohio and Allegheny valleys. During the entire session of the conven tion the visiting ladies will be entertained bv the Ladies' Auxiliary of the local Plumbers' Association. All the interest ing sights in and around the two cities will be visited. The same treat will be enjoyed by the gentlemen in the evening it the weather is favorable. Old City Hall will be exquisitely decor ated with the most choice selection of floral beauties of the season and the refresh ments are to be served by E. W. Hagen. Mr. Charles H. Humbert, Chairman of the Committee on Arrangements, said yes terday that the local organization had done everything to make this convention one of the most brilliant and successful in the his tory of the association. This will be the first time the plumbers have held a conven tion in this city, and Pittsburg was chiefly singled out on account of the great indus tries represented here, and also to study the progress made in the plumbing business during the advent of natural gas.

B. "Kendall, passenger, 160 pounds working pressure. THE MILKY WAY. The Grand Sight of the Sky Resembled In a Grcnt Drycoods Store. Here is the threshold of the Milky Way was the idea which at once suggested itself to anybody who stood at the entrance of Fleishman's store yesterday, for never was there such a mass of beautiful white dis played before any human eve as in the win dows, shelves and on the counters of Pitts burg's favorite drygoods store. It was the celebration of the triumph of the white rose; the firm had arranged to have a white opening in commemoration of the victory, and there was no doubt of a brilliant success. Breezes of fragrant air were watted toward you as you walked along through the rushing multitude of anxious buyers. Tne smiling blossoms of the bril liant water lily beamed upon the beholder from immense vases. Pretty little girls greeted you with gleeful laughter while they tendered you an exquisite white rose for your buttonhole. The white velvets, the white silks and satins, the white scarfs.of all textures and materials.the white laces which floated from pillar to pillar like the white crests of ocean waves, all this a scene of pure whiteness lent to tne whole aspectof the store a glimpse of heaven where all is white and innocent As the goods of whiteness from the simplest article of muslin to the most ele gant silk and lace work were handled by nimble hands, packed away and carried off, scenes from the "Arabian Nights" and the wonderful Kiosks of Bagdad were vividly recalled. "What is this all about?" Mr. Fleishman was asked at last. "It is simply our usual monthly opening. We have started the idea of changing it from flower to flower as the year advances and the months roll by. The people have taken to the innovation very pleasantly, and our floral openings are becoming as elaborate as our establishment has grown larger and more popular." Krep Cool.
