The question of irrigation con

It is of great importance for upon
it will depend in a large measure
the well being and prosperity of

A waterspout Is a meteorological phe-
uumeuuu or peculiar cnaracter, which is
occasionally observed on land, but usu
ally occurs at sea. It consists of a cone
anapeu pinar or condensed vapor, which
uuscenus, wun ino apex downward, from
m ueiiwj cioua ana at sea attracts a
somewhat similar cone in a reversed
position from the surface of the water.
The two may not inaptly hn compared
to a gigantic hourglass. The cause of
this phenomenon is supposed to be the
gyratory movement of the air with such
Bwumena as 10 prouuee a vaouuuj in the
axis of rotation, and the contact of the
lower extremity of such an axis with
water wouia eiiect tlio elevation of
column of the latter to a considerable
neignt. i be most probable solution of
the phenomenon Is that waterspouts
originate in adjacent strata of air of dif
ferent temperatures, running in oppo
site directions in the upper regions of the
atmosphere. They coudense the vapor
and give it a whirling motion, so that it
descends tapering to the sea below and
causes the surface of the water to ascend
in a pointed spiral till it joins that from
above. Brooklyn Eagle.

India For tha Indiana.
A Madras native gentleman was one
asked by Lord Roberts what he thought
of "India for the Indians." He replied:
"do to the foulogical gardens and opon
all the cage. You will then sea what
would be the end of India for the In
dians. There would be a grand fight
among all the animals, with the result
that the tiger would walk over the dead
bodies of the rest." On being asked
whom he meant by the tiger, he replied,
"The Mohammedan from the north."
The moral of this allegory of my
friend, who was certainly one of tha
most enlightened native gentlemen 1
have ever met with, was that India
could not lie leti to herself, and that a
enprerae power was necessary to hold
together the varied and various races.
