Cyclones are not what they used to
be in the old days complained Col
A M Hughes of Columbia Tenn
while talking in Washington of the
recent storm that swept his home
The cyclone which devastated parts
of Tennessee a couple of weeks ago
killed a large number of persons just
how many probably never will be
known But I havent heard of any
freaks perpetrated by the storm
Houses were blown down and people
were crushed to death but the storm
seemed to spare nothing In its path
Ten years ago when the town of
Columbia was visited by the cyclone
which tore up a large part of that
section of the state about 1G lives
were lost In and about the town Aft
er the storm had subsided reports of
its peculiar antics began to come In
On a nearby farm a bouse which had
been constructed in a more than usu
ally substantial manner was absolute
ly twisted and ground to pieces The
bricks were hammered apart and the
timbers were twisted into kindling
wood Yet within 100 yards a flimsy
shack which Was used as a chicken
house was left untouched A man
of any strength at all could have
pushed it overvwith his shoulder
On another farm a large tree was
found transfixed by a beam carried
from a house
The timber had been shot through
the tree as neatly as an arrow through
a tin target Why the beam was not
shattered to splinters by the terrible
impact no one could tell But the
perforated tree with the captive tim
ber stood there to prove he story
JThe entrance of the government
arsenal at Columbia was guarded by
an immense stone pillar on either
side The storm confined its attention
to these pillars They were literally
torn from the ground and broken to
piebes Cyclones of these dajs just
go around killing people without do
jg a single interesting stunt
New Way of Sleeping
In a recent paper Dr Johannes
MenliHilty proposes to abandon the
generally customary position of the
body during sleep and instead to place
the feet higher than the head He
says that this habit Is easily acquired
by successively lowering and discard
ing the pillows and bolster and finally
by gradually raising Ihe footend of
the bed to eight Inches He points
out in support ofhis theory which he
has tested by many years personal
experience that by this position of
the body during rest at night the cir
culation will be stimulated and im
proved and better nutrition of both
brain and nerves will thereby be at
tained Theauthor remarks that the
objection to giving up the hitherto
generally adopted manner of reposing
during sleep which has always proved
adequate and beneficial for an un
wonted and not yet generally tried
position may be met by the assertion
that the still customary posture with
the head raised by one or two pil
lows and a bolster has not yet been
examined for its advantages and short
comings else It would readily have
been perceived that it is not only Ir
rational but in circumstances also
injurious and moreover that It does
not afford the same benefits as the po
sition here advocated with the feet
higher than the head

Ludicrous t
It is hard for us of the present day
to realize that there ever w sa time
when the size and importamTe of the
United States was so little under ttoa
that grants of land were given to in
dividuals deeding all the land from
Virginia west and all the lands west
of the Mississippi river between cer
tain northern and southern bound
aries for small sums of money or in
recognition of some service to the
existing government >
And still later not more than a
century ago two of the mostproduc
tive sections of our great country were t
thought to be entirely worthless
In referring to the Oregon country
north of the Columbia liver Daniel
Webster wrote I believe Oregon to
be a poor country no way important
to England and of little use to the
United States
On the same subject Senator Duffy
said on the floor of the senate that be
would not give a pinch of snuff for
the whole country as an agricultural
proposition and with mock gravity
concluded his arraignment with I
thank God for having placed the
Rocky mountains there At ithat
time that mountain range was flpeined
At the conclusion of the Mexican
war when New Mexico and California
which tract includes what Is now Arl
zona were ceded to the United States
as part of the indemnity Daniel Web
ster referred to them as a barren
waste a desert of plain and moun
tain a region of savages and wild
beasts deserts of shiftingsands and
whirlwinds of dust of cactus and
prairie dogs
I have never heard of anything
and I cannot conceive anything more
ridiculous in itself more absurd and
more affrontive to all sober judgment
than the cry that we are getting in
demnity by the acquisition of New
Mexico and California I hold that
they are not worth a dollar
And all this pessimism was ex
pressed by the big men of the nation
but a few years ago What would
those men think of these states now
Mrs Charles Dickens
In his account of a dinner at the
Thackerays Mr Bigelow throws a
curious light on the subject of the
trouble between Charles Dickens and
his wife He describes the latter as
not a handsome woman though
stout hearty and matronly there
was something a little doubtful about
her eye and I thought her endowed
with a temper that might be very
violent when roused though not eas
ily rousable Mrs CaulfieldHoId ma
that a Miss Teman I thinkthat is
the name was the source of the diffi
culty between Mrs Dickens aefi her
husband She played in private the
atricals with Dickens and he sent her
a portrait in a brooch which met with
an accident requiring it to be sent to
the jewelers to be mended The
jeweler noticing Mr Dickens Initials
sent itto his house Mrs Dickens
sister who had always been in love
with him and was jealous of Miss
Teman told Mrs Dickens of the
brooch and she mounted her husband
with coinb and brush This no doubt

Lumber for Autos Expensive
Southern poplar and ash enter into
the construction of the best automo
bile bodies and It is not very easy to
buy the wood without paying an ex
orbitant price for it said a manu
facturer Why poplar that should
be about 75 a thousand is now about
125 the stuff having been pretty
well cornered and the makers who
did not look out for themselves have
to pay the difference
Anticipating a certain contract I
went south and bought 1000000 feet
of it and after that it did not make
much difference whether I landed the
job I could have sold the lumber at
about 50000 profit and never touched
it but I am using it now
Al kinds of lumber that enter
Into the automobile have advanced In
price remarkably and where the end
