inch cases &ovoro local storms aro noted as
ruAiunns op tub toii.vado.
Lieut. Finley recently described tlio
mown phenomena of tornadoes and tho
mil towards which tlio present researches
iro directed. Theso h tonus have, distinctly
marked characteristics and aro by no
menus to bo confounded witli hurricanes,
"blizzards," cyclones, or '.'northeasters."
Their tracks aro novor nioro than a few
hundred yards ido and their forces aro
fenerally exhausted by tho time tlioy liavo
traveled the courso of forty or fifty miles,
though in tills latter respect they aro ipiito
mrinhlo, some having been traced by their
linos of devastation more than 180 miles.
l'lioir rotary motion, uliicli is Greatest to
ward tlio center, sometimes roaches tho en
ormous rate of 200 miles an hour, whiio
their forward movement, nlwnys from
louthcast to northwest, ordinarily doos
not exceed forty or llfty miles. They aro
usually uiiiiccompaniud by electrical dis
turbances aud are believed to bo iiniu-
tllionced by electrical conditions, thouuli
thunderstorms sometimes lollow them a,
low miles away.
riiero Is a distinct and curious relation-
sliio between tornadoes and tlio euiiernl
storm center, which is always apparent lu
Ihoir uniform relative positions tho tor
nado always occuiriiiK Honthvestwardly
from tlio center if low barometer and at a
distance ot from 100 to (100 miles. Tho
shape of tho general storm center, the direc
tion iu which its longest center lies, and the
appearance of the upper nnd lower clouds
enter ii minor elements in to the problem
out of Which the weather experts hopo to
work a complete system ol tornado warn
Tho visits of the tornado nre commonly
between 2 and 0 o'clock in the afternoon.
Its home is an area of which Includes the
whole, of Iowa, all of Missouri except the
so a tern comer, the northwestern cor
ner of Arkansas, the northeastern part of
Indian Territory, Kiistern Kansas, Lantern

Wisconsin and Western Illinois. Here its
season extends from April to August Inclu
sive. It is a lieueub visitor to two or
tliree regions.
It lias a strip along the Cult and South
Atlantic, which takes in tho central por
tions of Alabama, Uoorin and South Car
olina, with termini iu Mississippi and North
Carolina, over which its devastation nre
confined to tho months ot January, Feb
ruary and March. Another includes a por
tion ol Southern nnd Central Ohio, a large
port i cm ot Pennsylvania, a small area In
Maryland, a strip across New York and the
ooruer each ot Massacbusutls and Connec
ticut when it is in season only during the
months ot August and September.
Lieut. Finley further snld: "While a
most interesting sclntl!lc question re
specting the otkin of tornadoes, t hit laws
which gooru Hu m nnd thi ir relationship
to other iiietoi olosjical phenomena remain
to lie Aiiswero'l, thu more practical ipies

The intendinit nuroltHser of farms apply to
the si ;iial otliis for information reKctiug
the liability ol their selected locality to
disaster. To such are sent the records ol
the past as tar ns they are known.
Whenever Lieut, Finley travels in pursuit
ol his studies, farmers and villagers press
lor information. To theso ho says that
nothing raised by the hum! of inn u above
tho surface of the earth can withstand a
tornado. He advises them to seek their
ilin'oiits upon tho appearance of the por
tentous signs ot disaster, and there await
the passage ot the storm. For their prop
erly he advise insurance so that th losses
ot an iudiv Id u al may be shared by his more
tort una te neighbors, IiiMiiriinroeotiinanies

cans should not accept concern!!!
the oninions of a man who declared that in
the conflict between a slave-holding oli
garchy and free representative government
the south was fighting for freedom, tlio north
for power. They are prono tocstimato tho
historical relation ol tho tintlsii liberals
toward Ireland by oratorical professions.
The Irish people, whoso lives nnd destiny
are in the issue, must judgo liberals auu
torics alike by their acts. In political lit
erature thero is nothing moro auspicious
and enticing than the promises which tho
liberal party havo mado to Ireland Whon
we scrutinize tho performances that hayo
followed theso promises, littlo is found in
them that is not ineffectual or brutal. Tho
Irish parliament was abolished by force
and fraud in 1800. Since that timo two
great nets of remedial legislation havobeen
fessed that itwnsdone under the-menace of
l'Yiii.inislii. Thus, we find tlio account of
the British parties with the Irish people
! luiUi need, and the Irish peoplo wider no
j obligation to either. There is the land
legislation. That is to be classed assiinpl.v
ineffectual. The land question in Ireland
is not settled. Evictions, which Mr. Glad
stone pronounced death setences, proceed
under bis land act and all its anieud
im titans atrociously as ever. Landlords
a 'id tenants aro in the same plight thift
tliev have lieen in for two hundred years,
nnd they will remain in that plight until
the Irish nation becomes both landlord
n mi t 'liant of Ireland. If the liberal land
k'g'tlutlon has been ineffectual, the liberal
tin 0- of governing Ireland has been brutal.
Tor what shall Ireland thank Gladstone
i and the liberals? Forn course of practical
tyranny, compared witli which the oppres
sion ot theAineriran colonies was benign

Professor It'Lon Cross' Portage Falls

A Buffalo (N. Y ) dispatch says: At Port
ago. Prof. J. K. Irt-l.ori, of Springfield, Ohio,
succeeded iu crossing the gorge on a tight
rope. The r pe, which was an inch in thick
ness and 750 feet long, was stretched from
bank to bank at a height of i!O0 feet about
hill way between the bridgo aud tipper
Portage Falls. The professor was clear
and cool when he started from the east
bide, but when near tho center of the river
his throat lifwiuie parched, and he was
obliged to stop for several secon ls. Re
covering himself he continued until
about 100 feet from the west bank,
when he backed up as far as the center
ot the river again, where he per
formed several feats. Dropping his balanc
ing pole lie let himself down to twosw iuging
rings which were suspended about ten foot
below the rope, and just above tho dam at
the edge of tho river. Hero ho went through
several gymnastic teats, at last sliding
down to Hie dam on a rope. When ho

Services In memory of Gen. Grant were
held in Washington on the evening of tho
2d, under the auspices of tho local com
mniidnry of tho GrnmbArmy of the Repub
lic, in the Metropolitan church, at whkh
Gen. Grant was a regular attend.-' nt, during
his presidential terms. Gen. Logan, orn
tor ot tlio occasion, was introduced and
warmly welcomed with clapping of bands
by the audience. Ills speei h was fiequeut"
ly interrupted by the plaudits of the audi
ence, which broke out nt mention of the
nnmes of favorite commanders nnd nllti
iions to the mors conspicuous evmtsin
Hie story of Oen. Grant's carver. Gen.
Logan's nddress ombodlod a recital from
tho standpoint of a personal observer ot
tho military history of Gen. (irant. He
began with his own first meeting with
Grant nt Springfield, 111., where tho latter
was assisting tho governor of his state to
organize volunteers under the llrft call ol
Piesident Lincoln, touched briefly and
with littlo elaboration or comment upon
tho steps in tho upwnrd progress of tho
Bubject of his eulogy, tho battles fought
and won, and campaigns plnuncd und car
ried out.
Tho speaker described briefly, but In glow
ing terms, tlio events of Grant's civil career
nnd honors showered upon him by our peo
ple nt homo and by men niiil mi lions
ubrond. "From Belmont to tho seigo ol
Vifksburg," said Gen. Logan in his sum
ming up, "I wns near him in ncat-'y nil his
mnrches, campaigns nnd battles, being per
mitted by him to take possession of Viuks
burg with my command, on nccount of its
having approached nearer the enemy thaii
any other. During my term ns commander
of that city I was with him ulniost overy
liny and from tlio timo whon, nt the bead of
that glorious old army of the Tennessee, ol
w hich ho was tho first commander and I its
last, I marched by his reviewing stand at
the national capital, down to tho last pain
ful days of his memorable life, I was with
him very olton. During all this timo I was
a close observer of him. Grant wns tisttnlly
Known and recognized ns a quiet and silent
mnn, but when engaged in conversation on
any subject in which ho felt nn interest
there wero few who excelled him ns a con
versationalist. Ho wrote tersely and well.
and at times moatoloquently. The nation
was at (tilieront times thrilled by ins terso
epigrammatic sentences. Whon he wrote
to Btickner, tlio commander nt Fort Don
elson, "No tonus other than an uncon
ditional and immediate surrender can ba
accepted; I propose to move immediately
upon your works.'' his words burned with
a glow ot patriotic tiro in tho heart of every
loyal freeman. When he had fought tho
battle of the Wilderness and wrote to tha
president: "I propose to light it out on
this line if it takes all summer," be Infused
into the people nml his troops a pnrt of
his own tenacity and faith in final success.
In his short speech to tho committee wlio
awaited upon him, informing him of his
nomination, mndj by the republicans, ns
chief magistrate, be used the memorable
words in his conclusion, "Let ns have
peace." Those words fell upon the people
with electrical effect. His coolness, his per
ception, bis aptness in using the right
words lu the right place, and doing ths
right thing at the right time, were nt the
bottom of his success as civil magistrate,
just as his gront faculty tor doing the right
thing at the right time and place, and
sometimes in the most unexpected manner,
wns at tbe bottom of his military success.
Tito speaker described the subject of bis
eulogy as a man of great strength ol
intellect ond remarkable common sene,
coolness, self-possession ntul tenacity;
a true friend to those woiily of hi
friendship, and the kindest and best ol
husbands and fathers. It-had 1"

glory but to save his country. When criti
cised and censured; when the clouds of
ralutnny hung about him, he stood with
folded srms amid the thunders, witneHMiii
tho wrath of his enemies, but he spoke not
in his own defense. Time finally dispelled
tho clouds and let in thesiumhine of honest
judgment. Then his heart was found hi
pure as the dewdrop which hung upon
the lips of tho velvet rose. He believed In
tho justice ol God and that, sooner oi
Inter, He would, by some means, guidt

line where justieo would take tho place ot

properly rebuked. "But," continued th
speaker, "his race has been run. When
the great and good man went upon tht
mountains to die, the attention of tin
whole civilised world was directed to the
spot. His glory was not that of his coun
try alone, but of tho civilized rnees of mnn.
When tho news ot his (loath went treinbliiij
over tlio wires to the uttermost parts ol
tho oartb, tho peoplo of overy nation and
tonguo stood with bowed bonds. Grant
had in life ascended to tho topmost heights
of mortal famo. The grentest renown wu
his tho glory of man's greatest achieve
ments shone around and about him. God
called him and he stepped from his high
pedestal on this earth into the presence ol
the great white throne, where he wni
crowned with Hie immortal glory that
shinoth on forever."
