Capt. Lee says be has no doubt of
tbe substantial correctness of the De>
pew story and that tbe sudden change
in the policy of President Johnson can*
not be accounted for iu an; other way.
In the course of a long interview he
sketched Johnson’s hatred for the
aristocracy of the South, and thinks he
had other reasons than political for his
intense bitterness. If Gen. Grant had
net Stood in the way he thinks Johnson
would have plunged tbe country into
another revolution. The country had
been rescued, and Grant did net propose
that it should die at the hands of
assassins or that it should be turned
over to ite enemies.

The following is a summary of the
results of the election in the east and
south on Tuesday, November 3d, made
up from the last returns received from
the several States:
New York elects Hill, Democrat, for
Governor, by about 11,000 plurality.
The State Legislature is Republican on
publican on joint ballot by a majority
of 36 in a total vote of 160.
In New Jersey the Republicans have
5 majority in the Senate and 4 in the
Assembly, making a majority of 9 on
joint ballot.
In Connecticut the Republicans have
12 majority on joint ballot.
In Virginia Lee, Democrat, is elected
Governor by about 25,000 majority, as
far as reported. The Legislature is
hervily Democratic, that party haviug
62 out of 100 members of the House,
and 23 out of 40 in the Senate. The
counties to be heard from will proba
bly increase their majorities.
In Massachusetts Robinson, Repub
lican is reelected Governor by a plural
ity of about 22,000. The World claims
that the Democrats gain fifteen mem
bers in the House and seven it the Sen
In Maryland the Democratic State
ticket is elected by about 30,000. The
Legislature will stand about as follows:
Senate, Republicans 6, Democrats 20;
House, Republicans 16, Democrats 101;
Democratic majority on joint ba110t,99.
The successor of United States Sena
tor Gorman will be a Democrat.
In Pennsylvania, Quay (iiep.,) for
State Treasurer, the only State office
voted on, is elected by probably 35,000.
Ail the changes iu figures in that State
show Republican gains.
A Washington special says: Repre
sentatives of the Knights of Labor al
lege that the public press, in assigning
reasons for the Democratic victory in
New York, has quite overlooked the
importance of that secret organization
as a factor in the result. One of its
officers, who is also iu the Government
service, and spent some days in New
York and Brooklyn in the interest of
the organization, says that its members
there voted with almost unanimity for
Hill, and will claim that success was
due to there efforts.
Grant and
Halstead of the Cincinnati (fazette
always had a fondess for McClellan aud
great charity for his shortcomings.
Speaking of him since his death he
McClellan’s greatest opportunity
seems to have been lost, when he first
had the Army of the Potomac in good
shape, that he did not launch it upon
the Confederates in his front. He
could have caught and crushed them,
but the memory of the Bull Run ad
vance dwelt with him.
One of the best characterizations of
McClellan was by Gen. Hooker, who
said: “Gen. McClellan was admirable
in the organization of an army, and de
served infinite credit for what he did
with the Army of the Potomac, but he
was not a natural fighting man—the
dreadful sounds of battle did not in
spire him and lift up and clear his in
tellect, but disturbed and clouded it
The mastery of the subject of how
to end the Rebellion by Gen. Grant
was shown in a single utterance, when
he had the Army of the Potomac in
hand, and was advised that the true
road to Richmond was that which Mc-
Clellan had taken. Grant said: “Lee’s
army is right over there iu the woods,
ten miles from this spot, and that
army is my objective. There may be
as much or little writing about the
comparative merits of Grant and Mc-
Clellan as will please those engaged in
it, but here is tbe fact: McClellan
fought to take Richmond and Grant
to smash Lee’s army in the woods; and
when the War was fought out the
capture of the Confederate Capital was
an insignicant incident, and Appomat
tox is greater than Richmond! The
Greater Captain spoke in the words,
“Lee’s army is right over there in the
woods." Concerning McClellan’s con
flicts with politicians he would not
have been overthrown at the time he
was if he had not placed his name to
some letters that were marvelously
indiscreet in a political sense, and that
displayed a condition of demoralization
ana uusoundness about bis headquar
ters that was dangerous. If Gen. Mc-
Clellan bad been well advised, even as
late in his day as when the Army of
the Potomac was under him at liar
rison’s Landing, the subsequent chap
ters of the War would have been very
differently written.

an important opinion.
|We have heretofore adverted to the
opinion of the Supreme -Court in the
case of Martin against Blattner and
Gibbs, appealed from the Mahaska Cir
cuit Court. The case involved some
very important questions, and our
readers will be pleased to peruse the
opinion of the Supreme Court in full:
In Supreme Court of loioa, Oct. 22,
1886.—C. Martin, vs. C. Blattner and
E. H. Gibbs. Appellants.
John F. Lacey, Bolton & McCoy, J.
C. Williams, Phillips & Greer for ap
Gleason & Haskell for appellees.
Appeal from Mahaska Circuit Court.
The plaintiff brought this suit in
chancery under code, section 1543 as
amended by chap. 143 of the acts of the
Twentieth Gen. Assembly, to restrain
the defendant and auother from main
taining a nuisance by keeping a place
for the unlawful sale of intoxicating
liquors. A preliminary injunction
was allowed. Defendants C. Blattner
and Gibbs appeal.
Beck ch. j. 1. The original position
contains sufficient averments charging
that Charles and Fred Blattner main
tained a nuisance by keeping a place
for the unlawful sale of intoxicating
liquors. Fred, by his answer not un
der oath, denies the allegations; Charles,
in a verified answer, makes a like
denial and pleads that the statute un
der which the proceeding is instituted
is unconstitutional aud that the action
is barred by reason of the fact that he
was adjudged not guilty in two sep
arate criminal proceedings wherein he
was charged with violating the statute
prohibiting the sale of intoxicating
in an amended petition it is alleged
that Gibbs is owner of the premises
wherein the unlawful sales of intoxi
cating liquors were made and that the
other detendants are his lessees. Gibbs
in his answer admits that he owus the
premises in question, and alleges that
he leased them, October Ist, 1883, for
the term of three years. He does not
state to whom the lease was made or
its terms, nor for what purpose the
premises were leased. He alleges that
the Statute under which the proceed
ings are had are in conflict with the
Constitution of the United States, and
that plaintiff has a plain, speedy and
adequate remedy at law. The allega
tions of the petition were supported
by certain affidavits filed by plaintiff.
Upon the pleadings and proof the
Circuit Court ordered that an injunc
tion issue restraining all of the de
fendants “from keeping aud maintain
ing a nuisance and from selling in
toxicating liquors or keeping the same
for sale, and from permittng the same
to be kept or sold or drauk, in aud on”
the premises in question, properly de
scribing them. Charles Blattner and
Gibbs appeal, and present various ob
jections to the decision of the Circuit
Court, which we will proceed to eon
11. It is insisted that, as it is alleged
iu the answer of Charles Blattner and
shown by the affidavit of himself and
Fred, that he had no interests in the
saloon and was not concerned in keep
ing it, the injunction should not have
been allowed as against him. We
think the proof sufficiently shows that
he was concerned in the saloon. It is
not denied that he had not been, at
one time, interested in and an owner
of the saloon, and it is not shown that
he had parted with his interest in it.
The proof shows that he was regarded
as the owner by those who patronized
the saloon, and that he was, by at least
one witness, seen there exercising the
authority of an owner and claiming
certain "property found there. The
Circuit Court had ample ground to
hold that he was concerned in the viola
tion of the law by the sale of intoxicat
ing liquors at the place described in the
111. It is next insisted that Gibbs,
being the lessor of the premises in
which the law was violated, cannot be
reached by injunction. We think the
consideration of some familiar prin
ciples of the law and provisions of the
statute will establish the contrary con
Under the statute, real estate, used
with the knowledge or consent of the
owners for the unlaw traffic in intoxi
cating liquors, is subject to a lien for
all judgments rendered for fines and
penalties provided for the violation of
the law by such traffic. Code Jsect.
1558. And the building, without re
gard to its ownership, in which such
traffic is carried on is declared to be
a nuisance. Code Sect. 1543.
It is a well settled rule of the law
that all property of the citizen is held
subject to such police aud other regu
lations which the legislature may pro
vide for the protection of the health
and safety of the people, and that no
right of property can intervene to ar
rest the enforcement of penalties for
the violation of the criminal statutes
of the State. The welfare of the peo
ple in their health, prosperity and lives
is above the rights of the individual
citizen. When the State in the exer
cise of its sovereign authority declares
that an act is unlawful, no citizen may
disobey such a statute, for the reason
that the act was before the legislation
lawful, and that he held property ex
clusively used in the commission of the
act. A contrary rule would arrest
progress by legislation in efforts to
suppress vice and crime.
The owner of property cannot, by
leasing it, remove it from the operation
of these principles. His lease being in
conflict with the law, is void; he cannot
plead it as an instrument which sancti
fies crime aud the violation of the law.
By the violation of the law, the lease
ceases to be of force, and it becomes the
duty of the lessor to exercise the right
which he possesses to oust the lessee
from the possession of the premises,
unless he ceases to violate the law.
Without special reference to the nu
merous authorities supporting this
view, it is sufficient to refer to the fol
lowing of that class:
Cooley’s Const. Limitations 593, Peo
ple vs Uanly 3 M Reynolds vs
Geary 26, Conn., 179. Brick Pres.
Church vs Mayor, Ac, 5 Cow., 538. The
defendant, Gibbs, having leased the
gropertv to the vendor of liquors for
idaen by the statute, and refusing to
exercise his right and authority to for
bid the traffic and oust the violator of
the law from his land, becomes an aid
er and abettor of the violator
of the law. And his abetting
of the crime becomes active, when he
comes into a court of justice and con
tends with the other violators of the
law for its defeat and the criminals es
cape from the penalties and remedies
provided for suppressing the crimes in
which he is engaged. We are of the
opinion that he is a proper party to the
action and the court rightly restrained
him ltom permitting the unlawful
traffic, which he was doing by failing
to declare his lease void and to oust the
vender of intoxicating liquors from the
possession of the property.
Iv. Counsel for defendants insist
that the statute under which this suit
is prosecuted is in conflict with the
constitution upon several grounds. The
first, as we understand them, is that
the statute deprives the defendants of
a trial by jury. This objection was
fully considered in Littleton vs. Fritz,
22 N. W. Report 641, after careful and
thorough argument, and it was again
recently argued upon a petition for re
hearing. We have an abiding confi
dence in the correctness of our decision
in that case and deem it useless to re
peat the satisfactory arguments upon
which it is Supported.
V, Counsel contend that the act of
the 29tb General Assembly, (chap. 143)
is repugnant to Art. 3, Sect. 29 of the
Constitution which provides that every
statute shall embrace but one subject
and matters properly connected there-
Which shall be me pressed in its
title. This act is amendatory of prior
legislation intended for the suppression
or the traffic in intoxicating liquors.
The act provides for additional penal
ties and remedies against the violators
of the statute. Tne subject of the
statute is the prohibition of the sale of
intoxicating liquors. Remedies by in
junction and additional or enlarged
penalties are matters connected with
this subject. We thiuk all the provi
sions found in the act are within the
purview of the subject or are matters
connected therewith. The point de
mands no further attention.
YL It is next argued that the stat
ute is iu conflict with Art 1, Sect. 3,
which declares that “all laws of a gen
eral nature shall have a uniform opera
tion." it is insisted that the provisions
of the statute prescribing the remedy
by injunction and the punishment of
those committing contempt by disobe
dience thereto, are special and do not
have a general operation. This pro
vision psrtaius to the sanction of the
statute, aad the remedy for its violation
by the commission of crime forbidden
ait All statutes punishing crimin
y the violation of the law or provid
ing for the prevention of crimes, are
special In their characters just as this
statute is, and they could not be otber
w ae.
It would be absurd to claim that all
felonies should be punished to the same
extent or in the same manner, or that
even degrees of the same offense should
have affixed to them bythe statute the
for a moment 1m claimed that the same ]
proceedings or remedies, should be
provided for all violations of the law;
that homicides, larceny, vagrancy,
breaches of the peace, and the pre
vention of crime, should all be subject
to the same proceedings, and that no
special provision should exist in one
case unless made applicable to all. To
the law making department of the
government is confined the duty of
providing enactments for the punish
ment and prevention of crime. In the
exercise of the wisdom gained by ex
perience in the administration of the
law in a land of constitutional liberty,
the General Assembly discovered that
the provision in question is required
in order to enforce the statute it en
acted. The same legislative wisdom
discovered no necessity for the pro
vision to be made applicable to other
offenses. The remedy and penalties
prescribed in the statute were there
fore limited to nuisances committed by
the sale of intoxicating liquors, and
they were extended to no other class
of offenses. The statute is, in no sense
within the constitutional provision
j ust quoted.
VII. The defendant, Charles Blatt
ner, was tried before a justice of the
Peace for an offense in violating the
provisions of the Statue prohibiting
the sale ot intoxicating liquors and
was acquitted.* He now insists that
the judgment in that case, is a bar to
this proceeding.
An adjudication that defendant was
not guilty of an offense punishable
upon information filed before a Justice
or the Peace cannot be an adjudication
that he is not maintaining a nuisance.
That was a proceeding to inflict pun
ishment for an offense; this is an ac
tion in chancery to restrain acts which
the statute declares are nuisances.
The proceedings in these cases are
unlike; their purposes are not the
same, and the judgments entered in
them are not alike. A judgement in
one action will not bar the other. To
claim otherwise is as*unreasonable as
to insist that a judgment in an action
of forcible entry and detainer would
bar an action of ejectment for the
same lands, or that an acquittal of a
charge for assault and battery would
bar a proceeding to require the ac
cused to enter into bonds to keep the
VIII. It is next insisted that the
Statute in providing a penalty for dis
obedience of an injunction, is in con
flict with Art. 1, Sec’t. 23, of the Con
stitution. which provides, that there
shall be no involuntary servitude
except for the punishment of crime.
It is imposible to discover reasons for
holding that an imprisonment for a
servitude. If counsels’ position be
correct all comitments for contempt
are forbidden by the Constitution.
We think counsel are not prepared to
go that far; we certainly are not.
IX. It is next said the fines provided
for in the Statute are excessive; and
it is therefore in conflict with Art. 1,
Sec’t. 17 of the constitution. We do not
concur in the position. We think that
there is no ground for holding that the
statute in this regard conflicts with
the constitution.
X. Counsel urge that the statute is
in conflict with the Fourteenth Amend
ment to the Constitution of the United
States, tor the reason that it abridges
the privileges of the citizens of the
United States. It has been held in
numerous cases decided by this court
and by the courts of other states, that
statutes prohibiting the traffic in in
toxicating liquors are within the police
authority of the state. All privileges
of citizens of the United States are
held subject to the power. This
amendment was not intended to limit
this power of the state. This con
clusion is not only supported by prin
ciple, but also by the familar political
history of the constitutional amend
ment in question.
The foregoing discussion disposes of
all questions considered by counsel.
The decision of the Circuit Court is
Mr. Edward Sidel was the chief as
sistant to the architect for the Expo
sition Buildings at New Orleans. He
writes that he used St. Jacobs Oil with
the best effect in a severe case of
rheumatism, and recommends it to all
similarly afflicted as the quickest and
most certain remedy.
The week commencing Sunday, Nov.
8, will be observed throughout the
civilized world as a season of prayer
for young men and Young Men’s
Christian Associations. This season
had its origin in a resolution adopted
by the International Convention of the
Americau Associations held in Albany,
N. Y., in 1866, and has been observed
every year since at the recommenda
tion of the subsequent conventions.
There are now 2,900 of these associa
tions in the world, distributed as fol
lows: North America 934, Great
Britain 503, France 72, Germany 549,
Holland 396, Switzerland 268, Denmark
43, Belgium 24, and a dozen—more or
less—iu each of the following coun
tries: Spain, Italy, Turkey, Russia,
Austria, Japan, Syria, South Africa,
Australia, New Zealand, Madagascar
and India. The American associations
are the strongest and best organized of
any. They number 629 general asso
ciations, 190 college, 69 railroad, 34
colored and 12 German. The yearly
current expenses of the associations in
America amount to 8750,000. They
own 82 buildings, valued at 83,532,000,
aud have a total net property of 84,353,-
000; 415 men are devoting their whole
time to the work as secretaries, libra
rians, and gymnasium instructors.
The expense of the railroad associa
tions is 875,000 per year, two-thirds of
which is contributed by the railroad
companies, who testify to the general
benefit resulting to their employes
through this special department of Y.
M. C. A. work. Last year 1,700 young
men professed conversion in the col
lege associations. There are 31 State
and Provincial organizations, each
with ita Executive Committee and an
nual convention, These committees
expended last year in their work 832,-
034. The International Committee,
located in New York City in 1866 and
continued there ever since, is the Ex
ecutive Committee of the International
Conventions, which meet biennially.
It consists of 33 members, 9 advisory
members, and 15 trustees, representing
all parts of the United States and the
Dominion of Canada. It employs 10
secretaries, whose business it is to
visit all parts of the two countries, ad
vising with and counseling associa
tions, both State and local. The ex
penses of the committee for the last
year were 830,496, which amount was
contributed by friends of the cause.
No one who has had experience in
lowa, can object to early corn gather
ing. And yet large quantities arecrib
bed before it is sufficiently dried to
keep. There is much mouldy corn
which is hard to sell even at a reduced
price, and of little value to feed and
injurious to stock. In the first place
cribs are not sufficiently ventilated, and
too wide for the corn to dry out. Too
frequently fanners are not good judges
of thestrue condition of their corn when
cribbing, and as a consequence it
moulds, tbe year’s labor is lost, and his
creditors suffer. There is this year
considerable replant corn, much of
which was slightly frost bitten, in
which case it does not dry out half as
fast as it would if not frost bitten. In
cribbing this corn cheap ventilators
should be placed at suitable distances
through the crib of corn. These can
be made of boards four inches wide—
two fastened together two or three
inches apart, with strips thoroughly
nailed, so that the weight or pressure
of tbe com will not crash the box. The
strips should be near enough to make
the box or ventilator firm and safe.
These ventilators will cost but little in
comparison to tbe value of the grain
they will save. And when tbe corn is
used, the ventilator can be placed in tbe
upper part of the crib tor use, year
after year.
There are lamentable wastes by far
mers not taking care of their crops
after raised. Hay and grain rot in
stack, corn moulds in cribs, potatoes
freeze in cellar and pit, apples freeze
before gathering. In this we do not
mean to intimate that all farmers are
stupid idiots. On the contrary we have
a large class of thrifty farmers, who
understand their interests, and who are
year after yeai adding largely to their
comfort and wealth and pushing ahead

yond any precedent. And yet there
are a sufficient number of dolts to jus
tify these admonitions, and the annual
parading of these common place direc

A front chill was in the air
flow plainly I remember—
The bright autumnal tires bad paled,
Save here and there au embler;
The sky looked hard, the hills were bare;
And there were tokens everywhere
That it had come—November.
I locked the time-worn school house door,
The village seat of learning.
Across the smooth, well-trodden path
My homeward footstep turning;
My heart a troubled question bore,
And in my mind as olt before,
A vexed thought was burning.
“Why is it up hill all the way?”
Thus ran my meditations;
The lessous bad gone wrong that day,
Aud 1 had lost patience.
“Is there no way to soften care,
And make It easier to bear
Life’s sorrow,and vexations?”
Across my pathway through the wood
A fallen tree was lying:
On this theie sat two little girls,
Aud one of them was crying.
I heard her sob; “And if I could
I’d get my lessons awful good.
But what’s the use of trying?”
And then the little hooded head
Sank on the other’s shoulder,
The little weeper sought the arms
That opened to enfold her.
Against the young heart, kind and true.
She nestled dose, and neither knew
That 1 was a beholder.
And then 1 heard—ah! ne’er was known
Such judgment without malice.
Nor queenlier council ever heard
In senate, house or palace!—
“I should have failed there, 1 am sure.
Don’t be discouraged; try once more,
And I will help you, Alice.”
“Aud I will help you.” This how
To soften care and grieving!
Life is made easier to bear
By helping aud by giving,
Here was the answer 1 bad sought,
Aud I. the teacher, being t aught
The secret of true living.
If “I will help you” were the rule,
How changed beyond all measure
Life would become! Each heavy load
Would be a golden treasure;
Pain aud vexation be forgot;
Hope would prevail in every lot.
And life be only pleasure.

The levies for school monies, made by
the more important cities for the com
ing year, are as follows: Marshalltown,
840,000; Dubuque, 854,460; Cedar Rap
ids, 857,000; Davenport, 871,660; Oska

Des Moines, 873,500; Keokuk, 833,000;
Clinton, 833,000. Of these cities, Du

no need for school house fund.
'AH the pupils of the Oskaloosa
schools are being examined to find out
the present condition of their eyesight.
A record will be made of this examina
tion, and at the close of the year, an
other test will probably be made to see
whether the defect has increased.
This knowledge will enable the teach
ers to know where it is best to seat
the pupils so as to use the blackboards
to advantage.
Miss Carrie M. McAyeal enters up
on a new field when she undertakes
journalism. She is a ready writer and
takes great pleasure in doing that kind
of work, and as a consequence her suc
cess is much more certain. She has
many qualifications that fit her for the
editorial management of a society pa
per. Having known of her success as
a teacher and having greatly appreci
ated her work in that line," we Srish
her abundant success in this new de
partment of labor.
In Davenport, Des Moines and Du
buque parochial schools take charge of
a great many pupils. Hence, the com
parative expense is somewhat less.
Taking into consideration what the
I>eople of Oskaloosa have done for
their schools in the past two years, in
the improvement of the heating and
the ventilation of school buildings, no
schools in the State have been main
tained at less expense. This is quite
creditable to the board of education in
the way of business management. {
The many friends of Mr. Manoah

tbe people called him to the Important
position of county superintendent at

important place in the school work of
the country than the county superin

calls for a multipl eof duties. A coun
ty superintendent ought to be a very
fine teacher, a good and wise adviser
to teachers and boards, a critical ex
aminer of those claiming to be qualified

visory officer, a first class scholar pos
sessed of dear judgment, and of an

and decisions. He should be an ex
pert on school architecture and school
economy and also understand the
science of accounts well enough to
know whether the treasurers and sec
retaries of the many school districts
keep their accounts according to law.
There are several other things besides
that county superintendents are ex
pected to do such as raise the standard
of qualifications, hold educational
meetings, enthuse the great public on
educational questions, introduce a
regularly classified course of study, and
guarantee every certificated teacher to
be a success. Then there are appeals
to hear, attorneys to sit down upon,
complaints to investigate institutes to
work up, etc. that makes the office no
sinecure despite what a few people
think. We believe it is the hardest
office in the county to fill. There is
really more work connected with the
office than any other one, and yet one
person is expected to do all these things
we have enumerated and more too or
else be severely criticised.
The Manna! Education Idea.
W. T. Harris, of Concord, N. H., has
written a on industrial
education in which he gives the opinion
that industrial education must be
mental rather than manual. He be
lieves that the persons that are so
much disposed to insist upon manual
education in connection with our
public schools are on the wrong track.
The difference between two mechanics
is not so much a difference in any
other respect as in that of mental de
velopment. The band obeys the mind
and as the mind is trained and de
veloped so it can plan aud can guide
the hand in doing the work of the
world. The trouble with the danger—
our classes of to-day, those who have
no education nor occupation, is that of
a moral defect rather than that of a
lack of manual training. Such persons
do not want an occupation, do not
want to work, do not want to earn their
own living. Even when they have
been placed in the penitentiaries and
are taught some useful industry, they
rarely ever follow it after being re
leased from the control of the institu
tion. They, in nearly every case, re
turn again to their shiftless, criminal
life. This is not because they do not
know how to work, or because the State
neglected to instruct them in some use
ful vocation, but because the moral
character of the individual is’depraved
and indolent.
Therefore, those who think that a
system of manual education will do
away with crime and poverty do not
get back far enough to reach the main
spring of the difficulty. The majority
of the labor statistic departments of
the several States Lave their in
vestigation entirely upon the labor
question as a means of making a liveli
hood, and do not consider the moral
and character side at all. Training the
hand to cunning workmanship and
letting the character question out of
account, only makes a more dangerous
and more shrewd criminal. The crim
inals of this country are from those
men who have the most acute manual
dexterity. They are shrew d, calculating
villians, and do not lack the element of
knowledge that these manual training
advocates think will be a panacea for
all evils.
There are two many who are in
verting devices for the betterment of
the human family that are leaving en
tirely out of account the moral nature.
These would be reformers think that
honesty, uprightness, probity and
virtue are a consequence of ability to
work with the hands in some useful
employment. They believe that dis
honesty, worthlessness and vice are a
product of ignorance in manual dexter
ity and of the demand that everyone
must live by some means. They for
get that the will power of a man is
what keeps him good and resi>ectable,
that makes him useful and successful,
that on the other hand plunges him in
to vice, crime and infamy.
It will not do then to trust much to
any kind of education that is based on
such an untrustworthy foundation.
Boys and girls must be born right, they
must be trained right as regards the
conscience and the will, they must
possess high moral ideas, and lofty con
ceptions of life and its true object, or
else existence will lead to depravity and

tornado prediction,
The attention of Congress is called to
the fact that some of the terrible loss
of life and property due to tornadoes
can be averted. In 1882, Prof. T. B.
Maury, asserted what was then the
fact, that the prediction of a tornado
was a triumph yet to be attained by
the science of meteorology. In less
than two years from that time some
predictions of tornadoes were success
fully made by Lieutenant John P.
Finley of the Signal Service. The per
centage of verified predictions is steadi
ly increased by knowledge of the aver
age conditions preceding each series of
tornadoes, thus making the predictions
more definite and local with each suc
ceeding year. Already the predictions
of safety for the day are effective. Of
3228 predictions unfavorable to torna
does, made in 1884, 3201 were verified,
and of 38 predictions that tornadoes
would occur, made in April aud June*
1884, 18 were verified. Of 19 predic
tions that tornadoes would occur, made
in June and July, 1885,15 were gener
ally verified. When tornadoes were
predicted, in no instance did violent
storms fail to occur, either hurricanes,
tornadoes, or hail.
The failure of some predictions is
doubtless due to inaccurate aud in
sufficient reports from sparsely settled
regions. While it is admitted that
nothing like absolute control of these
phenomena has been attained, yet the
above figures clearly justify the pres
ence of tornado signals either of safety
or danger at every telegraph station in
Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri, Illinois,
lowa, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin.
Georgia and North Carolina, especially
during April, May, June, July, August
• and September. It is hoped that Con
gress will direct the Signal Service to
submit estimates of the expense neces
sary to establish such a system of sig
nals. The cost would be a few thous
and dollars for flags or colored discs,
and for telegraph service.
