The modern science of meteor ology teaches us that in great storms, both on sea and land, life wind circles in spirals, which may hundreds, or even thousands, of miles in diameter. At the center, especially when the storm occurs on the level surface of the sea, there is a calm called '‘the eye of the storm,” Here the sun or the stars can sometimes be seen shining thro’ a vast opening in the clouds, while all around a furious tempest is raging Recently Prof-Cornu, the Fr» neb savant, gave 411 illustrated lecture on s’orms in London, at which he,reproduced the phenome na of a great cyclone on his lecture table, including “the eye of the storm.” His apparatus was a flit, circular disk, some three fe. t in diameter, which was caused to ro tate rapidly above a table which was covered by pins eairying little flags. The flags indicated by their motions the direction of the winds set in circuia' ion by the whirling of the disk ahoye. As phe dpk was moved across ijie table the eye of the storm moved wi( h it, and wherever the eye was the little flags lay motionless, while those around them were flapping and snapping in the miniature tempest, A barometer placed beneath a hole m the table indicated a decrease "C? pressure as the center of the mimic storm passed over the hole. A similar fall oi the barometer occurs in a real storm. Hon. Harry K.

People go where's business. Oip’tal and labor will locate where there is an enterprising community. No power on earth is so strong to build up a town as a newspaper wed pat ronized. and its power s ould be appreciated Ct is tlm health rather than the strength that is the gieat require ment of modern men at modern occupations. It is not the power to travel great distances, carty great burdens, lift great weights, or overcome great material obstruc tions.; It is simply , that condition of body and that amount of vital capacity which shall enable each man, iu his place, to pursue his calling and work ou in his working life with the greatest amount of comfort to himself and usefulness to his fellow man.

FROGS TO BE FARMED. LI J*ft - —— l-r- ThS’'United States fish pom mis-/ sion just now is investigating the aubieoc of fmg farming. It is be lieved that ih re ought to be money in tbe business, considering the large demand for the hind legs ai high prices, says the New Y°< k Journal. The, principal mat ke-for them is in New York (b y where they are gathered from h'd of tlm country, Fulton market, alone selling from -75,000 to IQQ,OQO lbs annually. The frog crop it present is wholly wild and the bulk of. it is marketed in New York. Mis souri is.the greatest frog pro luciug State; the town of Kennett alone ships 00,000 pounds of dressed frog legs annually and New Madrid is second with 25,000 pounds. The experts of the fish commission say that the plant required for a frog farm is exceedingly simple and cheap. Shallow ponds may be found almoat anywhere, and they need 110 preparation, unless the planting of bushes around te edges. Frogs feed rnaiply on insects; the reason why bite at a bit cf red flannel is that they mistake it for a gaudy bug. It is a good idea to build a low board fence around tbe pond in order to keep out the snakes and small mammals that are fond of frogs. The fence close to the water so that birds cannot stand on the inside: of it and pick Up the pollywogs. Naturally the first thing to do is to secure some frogs for breeding. Any old frogs will nor do. Some people imagine that a frog is a frog and that is all there is to be said . But there nrP in fact, a good many species of frogs and the real bullfrog is the kiud whose large aud muscular hind legs are so esteemed as a del icacy, T!j.q statistics of the Chino beet sugar factory of California chow that tfieie were 7000 acres of beets grown fnr that factory Dst y«*r‘ This produced & total of 64,000 to ns of beets and gave an average of 2,286 pounds of crude sugar per’ acre, or a total or about 8000 tons fertile season. .From this it is estimated that the net profit of the factory was about $240,000. The average, return per acre to grosvers of beets was $33.75. In Paris every woman looks as if she were wearing a parhmak.

THE PRESIDENTS WORDS The e’osing por inn of President McKinley’s address at th * Grant Monument dedication was 0 s fal lows. “With Washington and Lin coln, Grant h's an exalted plac* in the history and affection* nf the people. Today his memory is field in equal esteem by those whom he led to victory and by those who accepted his gene ous terms of peaef. Veterans leaders of the blue and the gray here meet not only to honor the name of the de parted Grunt but to testify to tbe living reality of tfie fraternal nat ional spirit -which h;t’§ . triumphed over tfie difference of tfie past and transcended: the limitations of sectional lines. It* completion, which we pray God speed, wi'l he the nation’s greatest glopy. It is right then that G'ant should have a memorial commensurate with the greatest and that his last resting place should be in the oity of his choice, to which he was so attach ed in life and of whose ties lie was not forgetful even in death. Fitting too, is it that the soldier should sleep besides the noble river on whose banks lie first learned the art of war and Qf which he became master and leader witnout a rival. New York holds in its keeping the precious dust of the silent soldier, but Ill* achievements, which h« and his comrades wrought for man kind, are in the keeping of seventy millions of American citizens who will guard 4;he sacred heritage for ever and forevermore. A STORY OF MILLAIS. The story of the iate John M'l lais, which follows, is told by a correspondent p£ the London Chronicle ii> the pamtep’s own words.? “J found myself seated ope evening at a rather grand dinner next to a very pretty gushing girl, to whom I had not been introduc ed. She tired into conversation directly she had finished her soup, and as it vyas May, began with the inevitable question: “I suppose you’ve been to to the academy ?” I replied that I had. “And did you notice the Millais? Didn‘t you think they were awful danbs? I can’t imagine how such things ever got hung !‘ She was going on gay ly in the same strain, while I sat silent, when suddenly the amused smile of those around her amd tho Significant hush brought her to a sudden stop. She colored rather painfully and whispered to uie in a frightened voice, “For heaven’s sake, what have I done ? Have I said anything dreadful ? Do tejl me.' ‘Not now,’l replied; ‘eat your dinner in peace and I will tell.yoty by-and -by.’ She did so, rather miserably, vaiply trying to extract from me at intervals what the matter was and when dessert came I filled up ljer glass and told her to gulp it down very quickly when I counted three. She obeyed with out protest and I took the opp.or tunity when she couldn’t speak to say, “Well. I aip But let us be friends. NURSERIES ON RAILROADS. Now conies the traveling nursery to take its place alongside the bar ber shop, liatljrooru, etc., ou our fast trains. The traveling n.ursery is to take up about the saiue amount of apace us the private stateroom of the .ordinary sleeping car.

At each end the compartment aud firmly s» . cur*d are t\y easy cots, in which the smaller children lie and wat.-h the games of the older ones.
