THE EYE OP THE STORM.
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.

FROGS TO BE FARMED.

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

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

hind legs are so esteemed as a del

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

of 2,286 pounds of crude sugar per’
acre, or a total or about 8000 tons

estimated that the net profit of the
factory was about $240,000. The
average, return per acre to grosvers

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«

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

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
