FEBRUARY FORECAST. |
Kicks Says There Will be Much Bad
Weather This Month.
We call special attentiou to a mis
take iv referring to tlie Mercury dis
turbance, at the bottom of our January
forecasts, page -12of our 1901 Almauac.
Vv*here we say, "The Mercury period
being central on tbe 31st, its culminat
intf influence will bemost, marked dur
ing tbe first ■torin period in March,"
we should have said, February instead
of March, as the January storm dia
grams plainly show. The first storm
period in February is central on the
4th, covering the 2nd to 7th. The
B>*ui6 days are covered by the culmi
nating disturbances of Mercury About
Sunday the 3rd, to Wednesday the 6th,
will be central days of a marked dis
turbance. Tbe first stages will be
warm iv mosfsections, with low baro
meter, aud ram and thunder south
ward. High gales with possible dan
ger ueed not surprise in southern aud
central sections, but the period will
culminate in heavy sleet and snow, a
high barometer and rushing, blizzard
ous winds down from the northwest.
We caution all our readers against the
wintery aspects of storm aud weather
that are almost certain to visit most
parts at the closing stages of this first
February storm period. Wintery, dis
agreeable weather will follow after
these storms quite up to the reaction
ary storm days central on the 10th and
11th. Ou aud about these dates there
will be marked changes to fall ing baro
meter, warmer weather and more
storms of rain and snow. Auotherde
cided change to colder, with high baro
meter and northwest winds, will re
sult at the close of these reactionary
storms.
The next regular storm period ex- J
tends from the 14.v to the 18th. The
storm diagram shows also that the
Moon is new on the 18th, on the celes
tial equator on the 19tb, and in perigee
on the 20 ;h. These facts, at a
time when the equatorial influences
begin to surge northward, give assur
ance that the disturbances beginning
about the 10th, 17th and 18th, will not
subside until after tbe 19th and 20.h,
and that some very heavy, tropical
storms are probable, especially iv the
south, during these general and pro
longed disturbances. The hardest
storms may be expected from about
Monday the 18th to Wednesday the
20th. As . counterparts to tropical
storms southward, no one need be sur
piised aud overwhelmed by blizzards
in the north and west. Continued un
settled weather, with squalls of rain
aud snow will likely prevail into aud
through the reactionary storm days,
Slat to 28rd, after which very wintery i
temperatures for the season may be
expected very generally. The opposi
tion of the planet Mars on the 2lst will
be a strong factor in all the disturbaucea
for ten days before and after that date.
Sudden blasts of cold following on the
heels of warm ralus and thunder, with
seismic shakes in many parts of the
Earth, will be most, natural through
this part of February. It must not be
forgotten that we are nearlng the cen
ter of the Jupiter disturbance. Thii
period is ceutral in April, but its ef
fects are in full force in all the phe
nomena of February, as well as through
out the coming spring and summer.
To all those long familiar with our
forecasts, and the grounds upon which
we base them, it is needless for us to
repeat in detail what we calculate to
be the specific effects of the Jupiter
perturbation. We may say in brief
that an uneven distribution of rain'
fall is the most vital thing to remem
ber. Local cloud bursts and tremen
dous downpours of rain and flood over
narrow sections, with great lack of
moisture, amounting to serious drouth,
in wide interior districts. We believe
that the destructive rains and floods
along the gulf regions will perceptibly
lessen during the present year. We
also believe that a "rain-belt" will ap
pear along the extreme north part of
this continent, which belt will gradual-
X: southward during the two or
ears to come, but that serious
shortage in rain fall over central, west
ern aud northwestern grain belts, will
result during the present and follow-
I The closing storm period for Febru
ary is central on the 27th, with Moon
near first quarter and north declina
tion. The month goes out with fall
ins barometer, higher temperature and
rain and suow advancing from western
and noi th western extremes. The
storms of this period will culminate
about Friday and Saturday, the Ist
and 2ud of March, in central and east
ern parts of the country. Meantime
a dash of cold weather with rising
barometer and clearing skies will have
overspread western parts of the coun-

HLROAD WITHOUT AN OWNER. I
exaa Line That No One Seems to
Want.
A railroad without an owner and
without means of support—a railroad
that cannot pay expenses and which
cannot be abandoned—is one of the
novelties presented by Brazoria covin
ty. Texas, as a consequence of the Gal
vestou storm. The Velasco Terminal
railway runs through one of the most
fertile valleys In the United States and
enters one of the safest harbors on the
gulf coast, yet tnere is no one who
wants to buy it. The fact that the
master commissioner offered the road
at public sale at Angleton, Texas, last
September without receiving one bid
for It seems almost incredible, yet such
The Velasco Terminal Railroad
Company was chartered in 1892 Tbe
charter granted the company the right
to construct a railroad from Velasco,
on th*> Mexitan gulf coast, westward
through the State. Only twenty-two
miles of the road, running from Vel
asco to Chenango junction of tbe In
ternational and Great Northern was
constructed and put into operation.
Two large hotels, a suburban belt
line, an electric light plant, large ware
houses and wharves were constructed
by a company before dissensions be
gan aud work was stopped in 1895.
Since that time the improvements have
been allowed to go to ruin. Under the
laws of Texas the stockholders could
not abandon the railroad after it had
ceased to pay, and as long as it remain
ed in their hands an imperative obliga
tion to the State to maintain opera
tions, although they were thereby
involved for the payment of an annual
deficit. Up to the time of the storm
had compiled with this statutory abli
gation and annually remitted from
the East the sums necessary to con
tinue operation, hoping against hope
that some fortuitous circumstance
would revive activity at Velasco.
Unfortunately, the flood, which last
year swept down the Brazos valley,
practically wrecked the road from end
to end. Then the bondholders, who |
had received absolutely no interest up
on their investment during all the
eight years, appealed to the oourts,
and had the road placed in the hands
of a receiver. The receiver was ap
pointed and authorized by the court to
issue bis certificate for the necessary
money to rehabilitate the road, which
he accordingly did, aud placed the road
In a fair condition.
R. C. Aluff was appointed master in
chancery of the road, and nearly $600,
--000 worth of claims were presented to
him to pass upon, the major part of
which were secured by liens upon the
road. In order to hmld the road and
place it iv operation after the overflow,
it was necessary for the receiver to is
sue certificates for 840,000. At the June
term the court foreclosed ou all Ileus
and directed that the road he sold for
their satisfaction, giving priority in
the matter of payment to the certifica
tions, allowances and cost of oourt,
which aggregated about $50,000, the
minimum price which the master com
missioner was allowed to receive,
Pursuant to the instructions of the
court the first Tuesday in September,
ISOO, the master commissioner offered
the property for gale at public auction.
Negotiations were being made by one
of the large State systems for its pur
chase, but, owing to the failure to ob
tain certain landed concessions at
Velasco, the directors declined to buy.
and the master commissioner received
no bids. The sale was then postponed
one week. Four days later the Gal
veston storm swept the gulf coast, car
rying death and destruction in its
path. Still, week after week, for two
inonthß, the road was publicly cried
for sale, and no one was found to take
it at a price, one-fourth the. valuation
fixed by the State railroad commission
and less than the actual cost of the
steel
The road under the management of
the receiver, which has been able and
economical, has been unprofitable.
The ability to float certificates is
now exhausted and yet the receiver is
bound under his appointment and
bond to operate the road. The court's
order directs the master commissioner
to sell the road, and yet be cannot find
a buyer. The law forbids the aban
donment of the road and dictates that
the rails shall not be removed. This
legal puzzle .is now presented to the
court for solution.—Philadelphia In

Mere Trouble n Kansas.
The inhabitants of Wathena, Kan ,
and vicinity, are in a state of freDzy
over the wrecking of the bank of the
town and the suicide of the cashier,
Frank H arpster. Had not th c cashier
taken his own life by blowing out his
brains the citizens he robbed would
have taken it for him. Two hundred
and eighty ruined depositors of the
town are after the directors and other

in getting hold of them there will
doubtless be serious trouble. It Is
known that Ha>pster stole $180,010.
The directors of the bank, in a state

defend their action by saying that
they owned only ten out of the fifty

R. COINAGE OF LAST YEAR.
as The Greatest in the History of
The Couutry.
George Roberts, Director of the
Mint, in his annual reports shows
that the coinage of the past year was
in excess of that executed in any pre-!
vlous year in the history of the service,
aggregating $141,351,960, as compared
with $136,855,676 in the last fiscal year.
The value of the gold coinage was
slightly below that of the previous
year, being 8107,937,110, as compared
with 8108,177 180.
The coinage of silver dollars was
$18,244,984, as compared with $18,254,
709 in the previous year. The chief
Increase was in the output of subsidi
ary and minor coins, which surpassed
all records.
' The coinage of subsidiary silver
amounted to 57,114,270 pieces of the
812,870,849, and of minor coins
to the extraordinary total of 101,301,753
pieces, of the value of 82,243,017.
The seigniorage, or profit, on this
coinage was $5,477,252.
The deposits of gold bullion at the
Mints and assay offices of the United
States during tbe fiscal year, exclusive
of re-deposits, were of the value of
8133,920,119 against 8143,497.190 report
ed the previous year. The total de
posits of gold were not so great as in
the previous year, the imports of bul
lion showing a dccl Ine, but the deposits
of domestic bullion again surpassed
all records, amounting to 887,458,836
against $76,252,487 last year.
The seigniorage on the coinage of sil
ver dollars, subsidiary and minor
coins during the year amounted to
$10,286,302.
Including silver contained in gold
deposits, tbe deposits and purchases
of silver during the fiscal year, exclu
sive of re deposits, amounted to 11,
--398.137 standard ounces, against
14 073,454 standard ounces reported for
the precious year.
The fluctuations in the price of sil
ver in the London market during the
twelve months ranged from 26 5 8 to
28 9 16
At the highest market price for sil
ver during the year, the commercial
ratio of silver to gold was as 1 to 35.41
and at the average price 1 to 34 44.
Birth marks which marks and mar
the outside of the body are a grief to
every mother whose children may bear
them. But for every child who bears
a birth mark On the skin there are
many who bear an indelible birth mark
ou the mind. Nervous mothers have
nervous children and many a man and
woman owes an irritable and.deapond
ent temperament to those days of dread
when the mother waited the hour of
her maternity. The use of Dr. Pierces
Favorite Prescription strengthens the
mother for her trial. With strength
comes a buoyancy of spirits and quiet
ness of mind, which is one of the hap
piest gifts a mother can bestow on her
offspring. By giving vigor and elasti
city to the delicate womanly organs
"Favorite Prescription" practically
does away with the pain of maternity
and makes tbe baby's advent as natural
and as simple as the blossoming of a
flower. There is no opium, cocaine or
other narcotic containedin "Favorite
Prescription."

Strange Fatality Among Horses.
Rev. A. P. Boude has had a serious
and strange misfortune within tbe last
Knis. When his wagon came in
his milk route on Wednesday
morning one of his horses was very
stiff. Mr. Boude being oonfined to his
room with grip, the horse was put into
the stable and several neighbors called
in, each one of whom had a different
opinion of what was the matter, and
what ought to be done. Dr. H.H. Lee
was sent for aud pr<?soribed for the
horse, pronouncing it indigestion. His
directions were carried out, but by 41
o'clock the horse was dead. The men
bad scarcely returned from hauling
this horse out when another was taken
down the same way, and by half past
eleven at night that one, too, was dead.
He had one other horse which was we!i
at midnight, but by 5 o'clock this morn
ing that one was down affected just as
the others.— Rockbridge News.

M. C. A. Convention at Roanoke
February 2lst-23rd.
The officials of the State Young
Sleii's Christian Association, which
has Its headquarters at the Richmond
Young Men's Christian Association
building, are busily engaged in prepar
ing for the annual convention of the
associations, which is to meet at Roan
okeon February 21st for three days'
session.
They eonfideutally expect to make
this the largest convention ever held
in Virginia by the Young Men's Chris
tian Association. College work will be
made one great feature of the gather
ing. A look at tbe map will disclose
the fact that Roanoke Is in easy access
to many of the well-known universi
ties and colleges) of the State. In
many of these colleges Young Men's
Christian Associations work is being
done, and it is expected that they will
make an effort to bring the attendance
well into the hundreds. At the con
vention last year at Hampton the at
tendance was 181 delegates.
Although at this early date the foi
lowiuK speakers have accepted the in
vitation of tbe committee to be pres
ent: Rev. Russell Cecil, D. D., pastor
of the Second Presbyterian church, of
Richmond; Mr. Edwin F. See.Secretary .
of the Brooklyn (N. V.) Association;
Mr Augustus Nash, Secretary of the
Religious Department of the Cleveland
(O.) Association; State Secretaries
George F. Tibbltts, of the Maryland
group, and A. G. Knebel, of tbe Caro
linas. The International Committee
will be ably represented by Mr. Harry
W. Hicks, of the College Department;
Mr. C. L. Gates, of the Field Depart
ment, and Mr. H. 0. Williams, of the
Railroad Department. These will be
augmented by uiaDy other speakers of
State and national reputed. Music is
to be one of the features of the conven
tion. Professor George F. Tibbetts, of
Washington, D. C , has been secured to
conduct that part of tbe services.
The association work in Virginia coy
era all lines of general effort, embrac
ing the departments in the cities, small
towns, in railroad division points, in
mining oommunities, and in army
posts wherever practical.

The man tangled in the tape from
the ticker is the type of the average
business man. His business cares
wrap him about like the coils of a
constrictor and slowly crush out his
life. The common sign of the busi
ness man's slavery is "weak stom
ach," the natural consequence of the
rapid eating, the indigestible pastry,
the coffee and pie or doughnuts,
with which many a man stuns his
stomach under the name of "quick
lunch." The quickest way back to
a strong stomach and sound health
is to use Dr. Pierces Golden Med
cal Discovery until perfectly cured.
It goes to the root of disease. It
removes the cause of ill-health.
It makes more blood and better
blood, and thia blood nourishes
every organ in the body to the
highest point of vigorous health.

"ELASTIC JAPAN ROOFING PAINT" seven (7) years ago. and the jot has given en
tire satisfaction; so much so. that I employed him, this year, to paint the roofs of
several of my other buildings. I have had other paints applied to some of my roofs
but find the somposition used by Mr. Harnsberger is much more lasting than any other
that has been used on my premises. CHAS. 8. HOLLER, Principal,
