The colonists In Louisana during the
rear 1728 were dragging. along slug
gishly and miserably a rickety sort of
existence, whe'n, on the 11th of Septem
ber, there burst upon them a tremend
ous hurricane, which lasted three
days. The church, the hospitals and
thirty houses in the modest little ham
let of New Orleans were prostrated by
the wind. Three ships that were in
port were completly wrecked, the crops
were destroyed, very few of the edift
ces on the embryo farms of the colony
could withstand the fury of the hurri
cane, and were swept away like chafi
or autumn leaves. The desolation was
so widely spread and so intensely felt
that that the first impulse of the peo
pie in their despair was to quit the
colony for ever; and no doubt they
would have executed their design if
they could have procured means of
transportation. A company of in fan try
that had embarked at Biloxi for New
Orleans availed themselves of this fa
vorable opportunity for escape, took
possession of the vessel and forced her
captain to nail for Charleston, where
they landed safely with their arms and
baggage. On the 25th of February,
1741, Beauchamp, the French comman
der at Mobile, gave in a dispatch to his
Goverment the description of a dread
ful hurricane which began on the 11th
of September, 1740, and which pro
duced very extensive disasters in what
was then called the Colony of L)uisi
ana. "The hurricane," he said "was
so violent that here (Mobile) it blow
down several houses, and among others
the edifice which Mr. Bizeton had con
strueted, not only as a store, but as
a house of refuge for sallors. Unfor
nnately It contained all the flour and
provisions destined for the subsistence
of the garrison, I was obliged to send
the garrison a fishing along the coast
for the barrels which had been thrown
into the water and part of which were
staved in. Without this barrel-fishing
we should have run tbe risk of dying
of hunger, as our resources were limi
ted to six or cight barrels of flour
which were in the fort. "The wind
was so furions that if it had continued
forty-eight hours, as all hurricanes
generally do, we should have been in
undated. Fortunately it blew only
twelve hours, but with such force that
half of Dauphine Island was carried
away, and more than three hundred
head of cattle were drowned on the
island. We have lost a greater num
ber of them on this coast and at Pasea
goula. This loss is severely felt by the
poor population of this section of the
country. The effect produced by the
force of the wind is almost Incredible.
There was lying before the guard
house of Dauphine Island a cannon of
four pound caliber. The wind trans
ported it eighteen feet from where it
was. This fact is sworn to by all the
Inhabitants of the island. This hurri
cane, whiole lasted twelve hours, began
in the night of the 11th of September,
and ceased on that day at noon. But al
though its duration was not long, it
caused imuoh damage. To cap the climax
there camne another hurricane on the
18th of the same monthi, which de
stroyed the rest of our resources. This
wind, which blew from the north
northeast, and whichb was accomipaniod
by heavy raini, caused an overflowing
of all the rivois from Carolina to this
place. The first hurricane was from
east-southeast. Lauckilyv these hori
canes did not pass over New Orleans
and the adjacent country, whore all
the crops have turned out to be pretty
abundant. Otherwise the whole col
ony would have beeni in a frightful
condition for the want of provisions.
Diving for Fish.
Every time that a steamer anchors at
Aden numbers of little boys swim
round,the vessel, and dive for the coin
pitched to them in the water by the
passengers. Their skill is undioubtedly
great, but the fishermen of the Nico
bars, and a few among the Sea Dyaks
of Borneo, arc reputed the most skil
futl swimmers in the worldl. The men
of the Nicobars capture fish by the hand.
They glide about in their light skif's,
intently watching the translucent
water; when they obtain a favorable
Sopportunity, thesy take a sudden dive
straigth down upon their finny prey.
The fish are generally so startled that
they dart hither and thither, now up
and now down, without continuing
their swift movements in any one given
direction. The diver has therefore lit
tIle difficulty in coming within arm's
length of them. Ih is however, esteem
ed to be but a poor feat to seize and
bring up one fish. A man should be
able to catch simultaneously two fish
--one in each hand. This is frequently
done, and the best swimmers think
nothing of it. If a man wishes to show
his prowoss in the water, he ofisses-429
kills a shark, often twice as long as
himself. T'o many of the fishermen of
the coast of Nether India, shark-hurat
ing in water is somewhat like what
fox-hunting is in E~ngland.
Carious Fasts About Tools.
When we study the construction of

his forearm with closed fist; in the

a reproduction of a row of teeth ; tongs

prolongation of the fore finger; so, we
see in all instruments, from the sim
plest to the most complicated, only an
improvement and completion of the,
human organs; and thus we find that
all the inventional thoughts of men

MANAGEMENT OF DAsY STOC.-The

who ought to be honest with the cows
that supplied them In Infancy with a
good and generous supply of milk,

the so-called scrub dungh El are grades,

there would be fewer scrubs If the

arejelements which help gr a ly to make
up the good and profitable dairy stock

If we depend upon the common stock
we must weed out the weedy and only
cherish and keep the best. A good
cow of any herd or breed ought to
pay a fair interest on her cost and
keeping; otherwise she should be dis
charged-should be sent to the butcher.

M ANURES Fon DIvrrNT LANDS -
The coarse manures should generally
be applhed to the heavy clays, especial
ly if vegetable matter is lacking. Their
fermentation in the soil disintegrates
it, and promotes fertility. Usually
clay soil has abundance of plant food,
but not In available shape for crops.
Hence something to bring out what Is
In the soil is needed. Concentrated
and mineral manure are best adapted
to cold and mucky land. Here there
is plenty of vegetable mould, but
it is not active. Great manures are
best adapted to sandy or gravely soils.
lere vegetable matter is always dell
cient. Some sands and gravels are
lacking in other respects also, and In
such eases the land is worth little for
farm uses. On the land a sand, or
better still a gravel that has plenty of
lime, potash and phosphates, Is the
very best land to work becauso it is
always dry, warn and quick ; and if it
has a somewhat heavier subsoil, it has
the ability to endure an uit'avorable
season better than any other. The
beat test of a sand or gravel soil as to
fertility Is to observe the clover catch
and growth. If a farmer can get a
good clover catch every year ol sand
or gravel, he has the means In his own
hand of making it as rich as he wants
IN the older pastures, blackberry
bushes have in iany localities become
a troublesome pest, and to eradicate
them Is generally a matter of very un

has had his share of bother and defeat,
has found a sure remedy, During the
winter he mows theim down, and If
c envenient, runs a fieid roller over
theia to smash them down. Between
the cutting andi a dry spell in the car
ly spring, they will accumulate a con
siderable quantity of leaves and grass
which together with the stalks will
make a furious fire. As soon as the
new shoots make their appearance, turn
in a Ileak of sheep, and as the brier

were lower, from the great local comi
