* * WU Y AVK IIAVK CYCLONES. They Must Itocrdks? livovy Yenr Vutll We rinnt Tree?. From tho Chicago Herold. In (ho solcntl?C column of n Chicago journal, of July I, lt seems that the \vle>le theory of cyclones was olabo rated in a couple of line<. In un arti cle for tho lii>t<>ry ot ClllougO (vol. 1. p. ?SX), the writer gave the following suggestion: "Hut Chicago has been singularly free irom tho tlovostatlng cyclones that havo cut swaths of ruin in all the coutcrUiinous country, and the reasonable solution ol' tho fad appears to he that the light atmosphere of thc lake absorbs tho approaching cyclone ami (liss minatcsit. Tho force of a cyclone, as thc loree ol' dynamite, requires repression and compression to educate it.*' In this necessarily brief allusion tho two great factors ul' cyclones, simoons, nor thors or other other te real convulsions, are stilted negatively. Hut in thoso marvelous natural convulsions all the postulates nave to he expressed in that manner. In fact, to speak ol* thc "forro'' ot a cyclone ls almost lo usc a misnomer; for ?ts force is not thai ol' propulsion, but of exhaustion. Take the winter of Texas, the "nor thor", tis au example. The liol South ern sun for (lays and days beats upon tho treeless plateau of"?l Lian ? Ksla endo," or thc Staked plains, and as ail inevitable consequence the air becomes exceedingly rarefied and expended. This expansi?n continuos until the superheated portion is mot by a mass of cool atmosphere, mid thon tho nat ural cllccl of cooling ai.?I condensation Ol*tho heated air CUStlCS. This creak - a vacuum, which hiatus ls Ulled by ti current of tho cooling motor: exactly on thc same principle ?us that of thc cooling sea breeze, explained in ever) work on physical geography. Should there he a very large area of sillier heated air, then Ibo continuous con densation and rushing in ol' thc col.1 air makes the "norther." Thc stun, causes produce the sumo results ii both the cyclone on land and thc tor pedo at sea, and hoth are prefaced bj a rapidly falling thermometer am barometer. And the destruction o the forests ol our Northern States \ thc occasion of tl.c cyclone, ami UOlll inj; else. Thc ll'CCS are nature's mean; of disseminating moisture in the appel stratum, which, by thc cooler tem perature ol' nigh!, is returned to tin tin ?sty caril) in the form of dew, am tho removal ol' the trees causes tIii uninterrupted rarefaction of the ai and tho consequent eyclo.io. Nebrask used to be uneuviably dUtiuguishci by thc violence and irequency ol' it windstorms. How many ol dies unpleasant visitations has that Stat bad since the comprehensive tree planting thal has been carried Oil there li would seem that thal case alon was sufficient proof for the successfti demonstration ol this axion), withotl ?my purely scientific reasons bcliij adduced. Hut. if any reader has no been to Nebraska, or has had no op portuuity io consult the statistics rola live to that Slate, the cyclono thcor; advanced is easily proved by visllinj any large furnace.

Th rotary motion of both thc cyclono au thc whirlwind is another proof of th verily ol this argument. The onto edge, or circumference, of both is iii first to be cooled, and thc contre of th rapidly chilled mass of air ascondin imparts to tho whole body its r?volu lions. Tho motion of tho carib on it axle hits been allogCtl to have .-oin influence on the rotary motion, bu this has not yet been salisfuclori) demonstrated by eur scientific mon ' be accepted. Antagonists of our theory have ad dltccd the simoon as a simoon a ; contravention of its beluga scioutifi lad, bul, howeverj comforting th apparent contradiction may bc loth "Robber Lumber llnrons", it is, i faoi, no substantial adoration adver.-i to the theory at ?di. Tho tact thai th Simoon is an inten>ely hot sandstone while the norther is a very cold wind negatives nothing, for pyrology ha not yet demonstrated how hot air cat be nnule; and it is only needful tba one section of atmosphere, should bi hotter than tin: air in ils vicinity Co; thc heated portion to ascend aiid it location to be supplied hy the cooler And these simoons always occur ot tho deserts, where there is absolutely no forestry. Hence, as il is impossible tr> Irans plant thc hike-which has proved (hr safely valve for Chicago-lo the cy clone-infested regions, thc only menin for I hoir abrogation and ult?malo pro volition is to inaug?ralo an extensiv? system ol'tree-planting and preserva (iou, .and then-and not until then wiil tho len ?hie devastation ol' ila cyclone become a thing of tho past. 1 is the iicinc of stupidity to imitgilH that any part of the fundamental law of nature can be set at. nought withotl Hie direst results following, and jus how any nation can infer ihut th( whole emilieniatioi) of a country cai be changed without a corresponding (?bango accruing to tho atmosphcrh condition of that country is hard tc conceive.

Apart from the di-advantages re sulting to agriculture, in view ol' the disastrous loss of lifo, it wouhl seem the duty of our efl cte ( 'ongress to lake speedy and coercive ."ction to prevent the abolition of our forests, and also to encourage the planting of(recs, there by tho droughts that have made crops almost impossible will bo unknown, and these tonillo atmospheric results -called cyclones-will cease to be, simply beoati-c what called them into existence will cease to be onuses, Considerable han feeling is being created On the .Mexican holder hy thc brutality Ot "Mexican Officers towards Americans, and an outbreak mayoc?uml nay tina- antees the United states Government takes prompt and vigorous action In tho inaner.
