' 1 ' " J THE OHIOAQO B3.A.G-3LiB. i ! wt 1 EARTHQUAKE PROPHET., Predicted Two Rhode Correctly and Cntiied Qcncrnl Terror. Prof. Rudolph l-'nlb of Vienna Is dentl. Ho lind n rcmnrknblo enrcor. Ho earned nn envlafolo rcputntlon In (ho sclentlflc world ns n meteorologist. Ho wrote on this subject with learn ing, enro nnd nuthorlty. In Ills Inter yenn, however, ho wns largely tils credited among scientific men becntiso ho bctfuno possessed of tho idea thot ho could foretell tho occurrence of earthquakes. Some of his guesses hit tho mark, which only added to tho suffering ho caused by erroneous pro dictions. In 1S03 ho predicted that the Island of Kanto, off tho west coast of Greece, was nbout to bo shaken by n severe earthquake. Tlio prediction camo true, nnd so did his prophecy of an earth quake on tho mainland of Greece In 1804. It was natural, therefore, that when ho said Athens would bo terribly shak en on tho approaching May 5 tho peo ple of that city should be thrown into treat consternation. Tho Sun told long ngo how thousands of them fled from tho city, ninny tnklng rcfugo on shipi at tho Piraeus. Nobody slept In Athens the night be foro tho predicted earthquake, and thousands spent the hours of darknesi In open plnccs around tho city. May C was n beautiful day, nnd thero wai nothing to mar it except tho dlstrcsi and discomfort caused by tho earth qnako prophet. In tho following year Tail) predicted nn earthquako for a certain day ir, Chill, nnd tho people of Santiago wer thrown into great excitement. Everj railroad car that could bo mustered Into service was busy for a day or twe carrying refugees away from tho city Thero wns no earthquake, but tin misery nnd loss Inflicted by i'ulb's pre diction were considerable. Very little had been heard of Falb since that time. Ills seems to !iav been a caso of n scientific man gone wrong. After tho fever of earthquake prophecy seized him ho never added anything to tho work that hnd ghen him n rcspoctublo standing. New York Sim. f HOW THE STROKE8dTfFER. Oarniiicn Do Not Aurco nn to the Heat Action to Maintain. If tho embryo oarsman should take seriously all that Is said nbout the difference between tho so-called Eng lish long stroke and tho shorter and quicker American stroke ho never would become- prollclent. Ah a matter of fact, thero Is as much short rowing In Kugland as thero Is In thU country. Tho dill'eicnco Is not national, but sole ly nuo between good rowing and bad rowing. In theory thero Is only ono perfect stroke, but the difficulty Is In Imparting tho knowledge and putting it into practice. A long stroke Is not necessarily u slow one, although It Is not pnsslblo to exceed a certain limit without sacrificing length, on account nf the tlmo necessarily consumed In tho different operations connected with the beginning, finish and recovery. Thero Is nothing gained by a good beginning If tho momentum acquired Is to be let go off at once. As long as tho stroko Is held on to tho pacu will continue without extra exertion, but Immediately the oars aro taken out ot the witter tho speed begins to slacken and tho rushing forward" that Invaria bly nccnmp.tulcs short rowing bring the boat almost to a standstill before the next stroke Is ready ttf'bo given. The loim stroke Is the vindication ol the sliding seat, and the objeet of ev ery conch should bo to obtain tho max imum of length with tliu minimum of effort. t'naehes frequently overlook tho fuel that the llo-pouud man cannot drive a llve-liii-li blade through the water as ef fectively as a man weighing lt!S pounds. They apparently do not un derstand why tho lighter man should short or Is late at tho finish. Half oi even three-quarters of tut Inch trimmed off the edge of his blade will quickly mend the trouble. The crew that catches the beginning quickest hold! It longest and brings Its oars out clean est Is the due that never feels the wash of an opponent's rudder. I.csllu's Week ly. l'rinco Cliarllt' Chair. Ono of tho chairs used by Hoiinlc Prince Charlie while In hiding In Scot laud Is still preserved In Ulasgow. Tlili Interesting pleco of fiirnlturo belonged to a Highland peasant who lived near tho cavo where tho prince was In hid ing, ltelylug on tho loyalty of tho Scotch farmer tho prince spent consid erable tlmo In tho Ilttlu cottage. A special chair was set apart for him, and has siuco been handed down from generation to generation through the family Whn originally oiitertalued the distinguished fugitive. Tho Trouble.
