These researches apparently show that the cyclones are formed on the northern limits of tho southwest monsoon. When the - ne'.hern limits of the monsoon reach the land, and when the northeast monsoon ex tends from Asia to the equator, no great storm is generated in the Arabian sea. The results of this inquiry are important as showing that the real cause of the cyclones is to be sought in the conflict of the regular southwest monsoon current with the opposing northerly currents moy. ing from the Asiatic continent toward the equator. According to the prevailing theory, cylones are generated where there are great vertical differences of tempera ture, giving rise to ascending currents There are, however, no evidences of the existence of such conditions in the Arabian Sea at the p?riods of maximum storminess.

WOMAN'S LIFE. ItaHtiven From; the Cradle Grave. Of all the curiosities which the wise men of the Association for tic Advancement of Science took to Washington lor exhibition to their fellows, the most extraordinary was a meteorite with dia- oionds 'in it. Such a thing had never been seen or heard of bifore; in fact, it was the only specimen^ of the kind thus far discovered in the wor.'d The diamonds were little onef. but what they signified was big- The meteorite in question was one of many found recently in Arizona, near the Canon Diablo. I' was supposed by the discoverers that thry had hit •upon an iron mine of enormon- value, but investigation proved that the great chunks of metal picked up had been shot out of the realms of space. The place whence they were obtained is known as the •'Crater," becau.e it looks like one. being a circular hollow, 100 feet in depth, three- quarters of a mile wide, and mrroundid with n wall of rock so s;eep that (he bottom is strewn with the skeleton? of animals which have got in and and been un- climb out again, Nevertheless, it is not of volcanic origin, as is proved with certainty by the fact that there is no lava, obsidian—volcanic glass—or other volcanic product in the neighborhood. What was if, then, that made the crater? Geologists say that it was formed by the impact of a pingje gigantic meteor, which at some time in the past struck the earth and buried itself out of sight, leaving a hole, which has siilce become partly filled up, surrounded by a wall of rock that was forced out of p'ace. Imaging what a big one it must have been to leave a cavity three fourths of a mile ii. width where it hit this vilauet. The huge mass of iron of which it was composed is there yet, of c. urse. Perhaps it is not sunk too deep ti render mining for its material unprofitable. Fragments of it formed the masses that, were picked up by the prospectors .ibove referred to. That one which contained the diamonds, however, has opened on absorbing subject for speculation. It proves that there are diamonds£in otber worlds than ours; but also it points to many other important conclusions. The diamonds of the famous Kimberly mines, which at present produce almost the entire world's snpr-ly of these gems, are all found at the bottoms of just such craters as the one described in.Arizoun. Jt'is beliered that these craters, so called, were'formed by the impact of great rneteora, because Ihere is no other conceivable way in which they could havs been made, aud frr other reasons aeologic il. If so, then it must be inferred that prob.bly all the diamonds of were brought to this terrestrial sphere by the meteorites. Iu other words, thrse preeicu? jewels are not-native to the earth, but have beea fetched hither with the dust of oilier slurs. That accounts for the manner, hitherto deomtd unsccount able, in which thev are scatiwed everywhere through drifts of all sorts, having apparently no birthplace or definite relation to ether minerals. ^i Jtmay-be in the middle 6t the road aha the occasion one of serions eiigeacy; "ThFsj: particular black Mlows had promisedSto griid9 me to a nest of the~ 1 had never seen cne, and was very fluxion* to'do S<K On my journey mt companions seerrted incessantly to ba looking for something'to' eat.

Thirty-two feel the tape line showed for'»ach jump, taking it from toe mark to toe mark, ae the animal left them in the sand. It ig marvelous to see one of these great marsupials streaking across the cniutry in immense bounds,, literally throwing itself through (he air with its mighty hind limbs and hardly teeming to touch the earth in itj flight. The beast really? looka > as it it was flying, and I am not.HUrprised that Capt. Cook's, naturalist should have taken the firat kangaroo he saw for a big bird. '•On our way_ to find the nest, I came acroHS a beautiful speci oien of a rare kind of llzird. commonly called the 'flying dragon,' because it sometimes appears to fly, supporting itselMn the air to some extent aVdoes a flying squirrel. This one, which had an especially large and fine ruffle around its neck, crawled into hollow log to escape. I up-ended tho log, when it fell out, and I told one of the black fellows to pick it up. He did BO, and immediately carrying it to bis mouth, bitofi iU head. I was very angry to lose such a treasure in that way: but, when I scolded the man looked astonished, rubbed his stomach and said, 'Good, good.' Soon afterward may attention was called to a sort of 'Jack-in-in-the.pulpit' that grew in a liUle dell. Its leaves were somewhat withered, which fact was accounted for when auother of my aboriginal companions plucked the plant, up by t'ue roots and showed me, hanging from them, a bright green caterpillar, quite a foot in length. This latter he coojy held up by one end, dropped it down his throat, closed his eyes in an ecstacy of gustatcry appreciation and rubbed his stomach also. We reached the nest at last, and it was well worth seeing. It was a circular mound 8 feet high and- 22 feet in diameter. The birds begin the construction of such a one by getting together a big heap of leaves. On top of and around this heap they gather earth by tcralching it backward toward tne pile, and it was in this wav wholly that the great mound 1 describe was built up. All the surface soil had been scraped aw«y for a long distance around, for adding to the accumulation. When the birds have thus made their earth heap ready for the season's laying, they cut a cylindrical hole down into the middle of it. Into this they get one by one and lay their eggs. As soon as all are through they fill up the hole, leaving a cavity shaped like a wash basin on the top of the mound. Rains come, and the water retained ia this hollow filters through to the depoit of leaves, which are thus made to decompose. The heat of decomposition hatches the egg* and the youngfowls burrow their way out of the mound, not upward, but through the sides. It is a wise bird that knows its own mother, for the oarett bird gives no thought or care to their offspring after depositing their eggs. You can imagine what a vast amount of material is put into one of these nests when I fell you that a friend of mine in Australia "made his whole garden pa'.ch from one-half of one of these mounds.—Cincinnati Commercial- Gazette.
