Torna do Forecasts--The results of special investigations of tornadoes in 1882 and 1SS3, have led the United States signal office to adopt a plan for thoroughly studying tornado phenomena. The work is now carried out by about 800 observers, called tornado reporters, whose stations are mostly located, in tbe States of Alabama. Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Nebraska, Wisconsin and-Minnesota. -Since March 10, 1834, according to Sergeant J. P. Fiulay, tornado predictions have been made a.matter of daily study. The average up to June 1 shows that it has been possible on fifty-five days to'suc- · cesafully predict from the moi'ning weather; map that no tornado would occur on that day; ' on ."twenty-eight other days tornadoes were predicted lor particular States:'or larger re- EJons, and of them the toraadoes : on seventeen 3a'5 occurred an or ·near, the'specified region, while on.eleven' days, tornadoes occurred in. regions for which they were not predicted. The Victims of Tooth Decay---At a recea't meeting of" the Physiological Society of "Ber- ' lin, Professor.

The Coney Country. Jrfajor John CarJwell contributes an article in tbo Farm and Kanch, descriptive of tho Cnney country, once one of the vast garden, ypots of Texas: Caney creek is boyond doubt the channoT through wliich the Colorado river onco flowed downward towards tho sea. Tbis dry creek mates "its appearance first near tuo present bed of tbe Colorado, in tbe southern portion of Colorado county. JSagle lalro, a beautiful sheet of water, about a nxilo and a half Ions and a quarter of a mile wide, and the most; noted fishing place in Texas, is identical with its beginning. Canev wuids its way tbence tr) tbe Gulf of ifexico by a devious course of probably three hundred, miles, in its meanderinjjs passing through a region of greater fertility than llio delta of the Rile. Tbis creek.tobk its name from might be termed a-prairie beltspreading on eo cb side of it, upon which, instoaa of grass, there grew before tbe band of man laid the cane hoe at its roots, an expanse of marvelous growth, ibe wild cane in a luxuriance aiid stateliness equaled nowhere else except in tho bamboo jungles of tropical America, Tho belt of laud so covered with wild cano is iu its windings about 175 miles long, the actual distance, however, from Eagle lake to tbe sea being uot more than half that. Though known as a dry creek, a small flow of water passes through it, fed by springs along its coarse, nnd twenty mDes above its mouth it becomes navigable for, small sea-going craft. , Slave owners began to open plantations oc/ Can or about fifty years ago, and when tho cruol war came there v^-as from Eagle lake to tho gulf one continuous string 1 of pbrotatioiis, all worked by slave labor. It was then kuovra as one of the garden spots of the world, and its production of corn, cano and cotton, and *nany other farm prodncta, attracted tho wonder of tbe world. W.ith a most powerful soil, twenty to thirty feet deep, crops were made to grow with wonderful vigor, and harvests of enormous proportions were the result. To-dnysomeof these lauds thut have been in cultivation fifty years give no evideuce of fhili-ag power, nnd without b. dollar's wort^) of fertilizing compound are capable of producing: per acre tivo bales of cotton or two bcgsbeads of sugar. The soil is adapted io tbe growth of many of tbo : cereals, t o ' cotton, sugar cane and tobacco, and a great variety of natural grasses grow in tha greatest luxuriance. Ten yeans after-.'tho war th«ro was not in cultivation more, than one-fourth tbo land once cultivated by tbe slaves. Since then the nnmbarof rcra? of . cultivated land . has annually increased, until now more then one-half tho lands are planted, and have magnificent growing crops upon them. Before the war tbe yriep of plantations, including improved and uni-uprovod land, 3ad reached $50 par acre, while during tbe greatest period of depression, since tho var, they could be bought for ho more in cents thairihey formerly commanded in dollars. "With the rival in agriculture improve 1 ! places have again reacbd a price of $10 per acre. wbiJe some that re highly improved could not be bought at any s'Jch figure. Mexican Notes. The r riempo has published a long article, in .which it.takes a strong stand against duelling. · Complaints come from all over tho country that if the rainy season does not set in very 'soon the crops will all jfail this year. A . terrific hailstoriai '.recently occurred in Zapotianejo, Jalisco, *'hit;h lasted four hours and killed more than T/OO head of homed cattle and|borses. · · .. The Nacional says some people think a war between the United States and Mexico is close .at hand,5but tbat it does not believe this to be the case. . Numbers of Mexican families are moving ircm California and Arizona into Northern Mexico. , * . Papers from Sinaloa- report there have been several cases of yellow fever in Cosala in that 'State this season. ; The state legislature of Coaliuila has authorized its executive to sell the wild lands lying within tho borders of the State at the best price and nnaer tue bbst possible conditions. The area of these lands is estimated at 514 square leapues. A price of $3QO a square league is fixed, the surveying to be at the cost of the. buyer. No-more than ten square leagues will be sold to one person, and a stipulation requires tbat the land mustj|bB used. ; ; . The Two Republics newspaper, of the City of Mexico, says: The delay of the season of rairis is causing heavy losses to crops in the interior. Reports from the different States indicate tbat a 'Continuance of this almost unprecedented dry season for a short time longer will -result in a total loss of the corn and bean crops, an event which would bring dire ·suffering upon the- lower classes of the country. In- Queretaro the ground is so dry and parched that all vegetation is affected and tfc'o farmers are in despair.. The wheat fields around Puebla present a lamentable ap- pearaiice for the lack of rain and in the northern States stock is reported to bo dying of "thirst-on account of the drying up cf tho springs.

Tbe comiuofi disorder known as hooks is simply inflammation of the eye. wliich affects the membrane by which tho eyeball is connected with tlie surrounding tissue. This membrane is known as the conjunctiva. Part of tbis membrane is movatile, afid serves the ' purpose of cleaning the uyo from chisfc. \\ 7 lion it becomes inflamed it 1 swells and protrudes from the eye, and ignorant persous sometimes cut it off. Bleeding may relieve the inflammation and effect a temporary remeiiy, bat ifi is a bad practice. The better way is to givo tbe horse somo cooling medicine, and apply to tho eye a solution of sulphate of sine--one drachm to a pint of water. By an act of tbo legislature of Colorado, passed at its session in 1SS3, it was fixed by statutory agreement what shoiiTd constitute on American and what should be a Texas auimaL The law reads: All half blood Texas. Mexican and American cattle shall be counted as Texas cattle; and all turee-quarier blood American cattle shall be consider* d as Amcriwm cattle. Then goes on this law to say what bulls may and what may notbq permitted to ruu at; large on those plains'. It makes Rood blood compulsory. We quote from tbe statutes: No Texan, Mexicau or Cherokee, or other inferior bull over tbe age of one year shall be permitted to run at Jargo in this State. The otvuer or person in charge of such animal or animals, who shall permit tho same to ruu atlarffo, may be fined for each offense not loss than $5:) nor more than $200. And it shall bo lawful for ony stocK-grower to. casbrato or cause Co bo castrated sucb. anirnal found ruuiiing at large. And for the purposes,of this act auy bull possessing one-quarter Texan, Mexican or Cherokee blood, shall be deemed a Texan, Mexican or Cherokee bull. ; . '. Sheep and Wool.
