Trom Storms and Signs The planetary conditions during the month of May will be very unfavorablo for a successful month; as the low ebb vital forces wiirhavo the ruling power, nnd the great planets will be grouped .together In evil signs. The sun has been completely enveloped In a gaseous matter during the last four weeks, without a single break, but wo have reasons to believe that several breaks will occur during tho present month and caue destructive storms on sex and land This Is tho first time In many jeais that the month of May his been reduced to low ebb In America, nnd It may cause us much trouble and sorrow. Notice the Increase of storm", disasters, crimes, conflagrations and social and financial dtnicultles that will feprlng up all over the country. This month may prove veiy unfavorable for vegetable growth; for. If a break oc euis In the gaseous matter now pass ing over the sun duilng any of the "low ebb" days, then frost, sleet, snow and hall will bo utmost sure to follow. If a break occurs duilng any of the "high flood" days, then teirlble heat will cause unprecedented electrical storms, hurricanes, cyclones, tidal wave, and great rain storms that will result In dlsasterous Hoods. TIIC STORMS AND SIGNS. When the sun Is free from all ob structions It Is not a difficult matter to foretell storm periods; but when tho sun's tays are tin own out of their natural course, by reflecting vapors of unknown origin, It is Quite Impossible to give a correct forecast In full. Our Storms and Signs calendar has all the storm periods marked up it; but hero we can only give tho central periods near which the greatest dangers may be looked for: The 2d, 5th, 9th, 12th, 13th, 19th, 2Sd. 24th, 2Cth and 30th. Thero will be several awe-lnsplrlns aun-sot scenes this month, and strange appearing circles will ho seen around the moon. Several meteors will fall to tho earth, and earthquake shocks will ho felt In America. The lowlands will bo troubled with water, and the high lands with frost. Nothing less than several breaks In the gaseous matter now passing over the sun will save this count! y from a minaturo blizzard this month. VALUABLE INFORMATION. AH vegetable, grass, grain and flower seeds should be sown at high Hood time this month so that they may bo able to withstand tha coming heat and per haps drought that will attack them duilng to summer months Avoid suiglcal operations on the 17th, 18th, 19th nnd 20th, If possible, ns they aro tho weak dajs when the endur ances of the human body will bo least. Half of a largo onion with sugar sprinkled over the cut surface will re lieve a room of all flying disease ml ciobes within an hour's time. Sugar sprinkled upon a wound that emits stench will destroy the scent microbes and electrify tho phagoctyes so that a speedy euro may icsult. After hundreds of experiments wo have concluded that the only way to relievo a tree of borers Is to take a wlro and ferret them out; because any solution strong enough to kill the grubs will kill the tree also Every precaution should be taken to guaid youi body well against tho plnguo germs that will visit America this summer. Seo our forecasts for June. WHEN TO PLANT. As tho "low ebb" vital forces will have tho tilling power this month, tho greatest of caro should bo taken in sowing nil klnas of grass, grain nnd vegetnblo seeds at "high Hood" time; as all seeds sown at "low ebb" time w HI provo a failure, As thero may bo nn excess of rain this month wo wish to Inform tho public, that we have made a thorough test of seed sowing on jalny days, and find that seeds covered by SHOPPERS that passed 10c For beautiful bunches of Roses, Clov ers, Apple Blossoms, etc., slightly damaged, that is actually woith 75c and $1 per bunch. 25c For Men's Underwear that is water soaked, but good as ever when dry. For meily sold at 50c and 69c. rain will germlnato much sooner, and produce a stronger growth than when covered with a harrow. Tho ground should be prepared In advance and thu seed sowing should be done In thu proper signs, w hether It rains or shines. Any one wishing our sign planting directions In full telling when to sow and Kinds of seeds, etc., and are not able to send full price (ten cents), may have the same for postage, tw o stamps.
