THE UPPER DBS MI UNliS, ALOO.NA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY. APRiL 19.1833. WHY THE WIND BLOWS. The Wind'bloWs because the air is <Jolder and therefore heavier in one region than in another; tihc cold heaA-y air flows along tlie surface of the earth, creeping under the warmer, lighter air; the floAving air is wind. When 1 Avas In Washington in February with a young felloAv Avho Is noAV growing old enough to go witllii me on short Journeys we went to the groat monument. The foAV days before had been cold, but the mottling of our visit wiis wild under a war k ii sunshine, such as Northern visitors to the capital find vory enjoyable in IJie winter season. As AVO entered the door at the base of the monument a strong blast, of cold est advance of ten or twenty miles hi the middle of the afternoon. On more level land; stioli fts the coastal plains of NCAV Jersey or further south, the penetration of the sea breeze nun;." he twice as far in Massaohutte, nd from what 1 can learn the sea breeze there Is of more regular occur- mice than with us In the north; perhaps some of my readers may be able to send me some account of this. When the sea breeze comes in, It brings a. erateful change from the hot land air ttmt It replaces; sometimes it crrtt's even a flavor of tlie soa as Well s a freshness of temperature 1 . For this reason, as AA'ell as for the pleasures of boating, bathing, and fishing the air was hloAving out mid on inquiring of seashore resorts of the Atlantic coast, ' the attendant I learned that this AV/IS or the summer villages ot our groat a common occurance. It was a good Ulusti'tion of the cause of the'Winds. , The stones In the monument had become chilled In tho colder weather of tho days before, and all the air wittilu the shaft was cooled, thus becoming so heavy that whenever the door was opened at the bottom it descended actively and blew out with some violence. When we reached tlie top after the long ascent in the elevator the air was blow- Ing hi at the windows to siippKy- that which descended through the shaft, All tills Is, In a way, like tlie northwest winds of blustery March. For. two days we have now had here in Cambridge a nishlng northwest wind. Tho weather maps, Issued by the weather bureau, shows that tliis wind is part lakes, whore Hie lake breeze blows are enjoyed by visitors from the hot interior of the country when the summer heats are blazing. The sea dies away at night and may then bo replaced by n off-shore land brc'oze; but that is generally less active than Its comrade of tlie dab', or does It greatly concern those of us who go early to bed. .lust as the lands are warmer than the seas by day and colder by night, so they are wanner in the summer, as a whole, and colder In the winter. In the warm season tiic winds tend to blow from ocean to continent; in tlie cold season, fro continent to ocean. In Asia this tendency is well marked and the regular seasonal winds are there called of a great air current that Is SAveeplng monsoons. It must not be understood far and Avlde across the country. It 'that they WOAV Avith absolute constancy hall' a year one Avay and half the other; but that during the warm sea- comes from tho uortlnvest territories of Canada and floAvs all over our central and eastern states, flooding them Avith cold, dry air. Any reader Avho Is old enough to remember other Marches must recall similar spells of cold, A-lol- ent northwest Avhids. Tlioy may bo after a fashion compared with the cold blast that bknvs out of the Washington Monument on Avarm days of winter. on the plalnos of •northwest Canada, beyond Winnipeg, the winters are veiy cold. Tho days are short and during daytime tlio sun rises little above flic soutluern horizon, shining but faintly on the siioAV-coverod country. ^The SIIOAV reflects aAA'ay much of the sunshine that falls on it, and the reflected rays give no warmth to tho ground. Tho nights arc long and quiet allowing the SIIOAV to become excessively cold, and thus cooling tlie air that lies on It.' The Avhole district becomes surcharged 1 Avith cold, heavy air. If it Avcre surrounded by mountains the cold, heavy air might lie there all winter, until Avaruied again by the lengthening sunshine of spring; tiliere aro mountains on the Avost, but there Is no such enclosure on tlie east. Tho plains continue AVilhout interruption across the International boundary, so tho hoaAy air sweeps out; from the region of greatest cold, and deluges us Avith its Icy blast. bhiHtering norlhiwest Avitids characterize March for two reasons. First, because by the end of Avintor tlio atmosphere lover far nortliAVbsL Canada has fallen to its lowest temperature, and Avitli the coinnig of March jt. is little Avarined. Second, because in March our south- em states have already entered tlie mild half of the year. Thus there is a strong difference of tempera lure established betAvoen tho I.AVO regions, and •hence a strong Avind blows from one to ••another. II 1 all the air north and south Avero •equally cold and heavy, it Avonld every- son tlite, prevailing Aviuds come ashore, and during the cold season they WOAV out to soa. The coasts of India and China for several thousand miles arc thus SAvept over by alternating laud and soa Avinds of semi-annual periods. NOAV Ave are ready to understand even a greater example of air currents. The equatorial regions are Avarm throughout tho year; the polar regions are continuously cold. From one to the other there is an everlasting movement of the air. The heavy air from the poles creeps toward the equator and raises tine light air on its back. The raised light air floAvs doAvn over the IOAA-OI- hoaAy ah- toAvard the poles. As the cold polar air creeps toward tilie equator it becomes warmed. As the overfloAV of the equatorial air goes toward the! polos it is cooled. Thus there is continually a supply of cold to- creep in under the warm air, and of AA'iirm air to floAV back over the cold. The motion never stops. As the AAids go quickest movement In his Hfe, and, from behind a tree, flfetl once more at tlie ptitnther, this time giving him' a shot upon the nose that'for a moment stunned and blinded the infuriated beast. Tills Was young Richardson's salvation. He ran back several feet to get a position behind another tret, and from there took njbre careful aim and shot the panther through the neck. With a terrific yell thiiit, the lads say. could have boon heard a mils aWaj, and which they will novel- forget, the boast, leaped straight Into tho air about n. yard and fell back near the campfire, still growling, spitting* and clawing at ho earth. IHdmrdson had used his hist cartridge, and Colo, who had recovered from his fright, came running back at that moment, snatched up his shot-gun, which was only a few foet away from tho dying, but still vigorous panther, and put a Charge of shot into the nulntil's head. Of course, tlw.t settled it. Tho lads skinned the animal at once and came down from tlie mountains as soon as they could break cam,p. They have the skin, mid it is said to bo the largest anyone hereabouts has ever seen. It measures six feet nnd ono Inch from the tip of the nose to tlie end of the tail. Many hunters and woodmen hi this region say that they hl'iivo not scon a genuine panther for. years, and that they wore sure that they had all been exterminated. In 1877 four panthers wore killed In ono season in Lytlo Creek Canyon, but none were so large as this. There are many panthers in Lower California and Mexico, and the best-informed hunters say that this was, no doubt, one that cn'uie from either of those countries. The age of tho boast is thought to have byeii 12 years. Tlie young hunters have already boon offered $50 for the skin. HOGS AND SHEEP. Of the numberless sources of profit in breeding sheep there are three which ore much larger and better than the rest. There is a profit to the farm, for it becomes cleaner and more productive. There are but feAV AA r ecds on sheep farms. A study Avill show that they Avill eat a greater variety of plants than either cattle, horses or pigs. It has been tried with 500 plants, and it has boon found that, Avhon offered, 'the sheep ate 75 per cent. The power of sheep to clean forms and live where other farm stock could not exist is due in a large measure to tills. The farm becomes more productive, for each arable I acre becomes richer.

It constitutes tflie largest example on the earth, inasmuch as it embraces the Avhole surface of the planet. It is a magnificent system of ventilation in the literal sense of tho word. How AA-ell mixed tho atmosphere must bo kept by all those circulations' from land to Avater, day and night, AA-iuter and summer, and from equator to polos, back and forth, the year round. A curious feature of the general circulation of the atmosphere is Its oblique motion. The AA-iuds do not blow along the meridians from pole to equator, but hi consequence of tho earth's rotation thoy floAV obliquely, producing a great Avliirllng eddy ten thousand miles in diameter around either polo. In our latitudes the several members of the general circulation all blow al- •lio calm; If it Avero all Avarm amUmost from west to east; hence title pro- light, it would bo still and motionless, f vailing wreterly course of the.winds ^ ^^ But as there are alwap-s differences of across the Atlantic, by which AOjatcs In f erio r; but, on the other hand, temperature- betAvoon different regions,, from America to Europe are mado more motlier cannot contribute tevery- •• so thero aro always Avinds bloAving from quickly than tho return voyages from _ _ . „ . • one place to another. The. example of the old Avorld to tlie new. OAve of his breeding flock, AAdll groAV enough clover hay for it, he may sell a fat sheep weighing 5 pounds, with its 10 pounds of Avool, and his farm will increase in fertility. Many farmers- winter their hogs in the barnyard, stabling and feeding in their stalls or feeding rooms all other farm animals. It it a good practice, especially if AA-hole grain Is fed to either cattle or horses. The grain is never perfectly digested, and Avithout hogs to Avork over tho excrement much of its value is sure to be lost. The hog manure makes the other wore valuable AAith which it is mixed. After one has obtained the brood of sheep just suited to his locality, it is very Important that tlie qauallty bo maintained. This can only IW done by yearly selection. As the 'tfamier selects and improves his seed com. or AA'heat, year after year, so must the flockniaster attempt to improve his sheep, the OAVOS. the March blasts illustrates the effect • of pronounced contrast of temperature. In summer time tho strong sunshine '•warms tlio land more than iho Avator, ; and tflie air all over tho land thus 'gains a higher tmeporature than that 'over tho oceans. Tho many reasons for tills Avill bo understood by any ireador who has gone througt a course of physics at school.

Nor can it be bo selected, and toothers should be sont to tho butcher. - Bunshlne that falls on tho soa is given to idans. supplying the energy needed for evaporation, called latent heat, about which you may ask your school teacher; hence loss sunshine can bo devoted to causing a rise of temperature. The land is non-volatile, and all tilio jiuisblno flit falls on it is devoted to AA'arming it, except tho little that is needed to dissipate tho morning dew or tlie rain of the day before. Water is transparent, and hence the sunshine enters to a considerable depth in tho ocean and distributes its warming action tfhrough .a largo volume of Aval or; Iho land is opaque and takes all ferred to our text books, for they |on- »ou*™ ^^™ — —£ orally explain It »™^\ J^{• ^^° ok ^ ^^ nnfl . remains however tha tho geneial, dotriments to the advance winds blow very obliquely around the, ^ w be clispose(l !^*rrt!f ^l±r^±* 3 ££?<* be „£*** to *»*. pro- mlscucmsly Avith the others. By such weeding out of OAA'OS and crossing Avith pure-broad rams eveiy fall, tho flock Avill not only hold its oAvn, but even make decided steps of advance over One advantage for storing manure under cover is that It Is dry, and, consequently, easily handled at any season. Those AA-ho hA'c hauled Avct manure out from a Avet barnyard Avlll appreciate this. Given two farmers Avith equal mental and physical attainments, and each AVith capital proportioned to the number of acres which he cultivates, tho man Avith n small farm gets more comfort and satisfaction front his Avork, and quite as much not profit as the ono Avlth the larger farm. It Is Avoll known that tho last quart of milk givoii by a COAV is over three times richer in fats than the first oho, and not. to strip out a cow clean, and see that this last milk Is procured, is QUEEX OF to doubly lose, for the neglect dries the cow, and hero a largo loss is soon man-' ifest. Scientific authority HOAV acknowledges Avhat practical fanners said long ago, that corn-cobs have a feeding value when ground AA-ith the com. At first they doiiled tills, because analysis did not shoAV it; then they thought it might bo of benefit by mixing Avlth the meal and preventing it from packing so closely. NOAV, Sir Lyon riayfair, of England, says that when ground along. AA-itli tlie grain the cobs "aro of great value on account of their percentage of potash, and tho potash is necessary as a chemical agent to change the blood to milk, and the albumen to casino in cheese." The farmers knew they Avorc right iu grinding the com and cob together, but they could not toll why. Tho season is at hand AA'hon the fresh young gras AAT! shoAV itself aboA'O the ground, and in a fOAV AA-ooks thereafter tho milk floAV AA-ill be enhanced and the butter increase be such as to make the dairymen Avondor Avhcro ho is going to send It, and at what price nncl'u. market. May we suggest that butter AA'cll made, salted and packed so as to havo the vcsol impervious to the air, and then bnried in the soil or where it can remain at an even temperature, Avill turn out bettor six mouths afterward than when fresh made, and AA'l.ion prices are higher and the demand much great or. The crock or crocks mush bo bulled beyond roach ot summer heat, or where the temperature Will bo even at all time. The daiiy farmer who makes the daiiy his first care can also go into some collateral' branches of agriculture AA-ith- out prejudicing his main interest. A good garden and some good young stock small fields of clover, oats, com and Avheat, all Avell manured direct from the daiiy, Avill help toward 1 a profitable. income. Good meadows are often seriously injured by being pastured too close, especially soonaftor i cutting, when, usually, the'weather is hot and dry, and' again in the fall before cold, freezing weather sots in. Grass plant, roots need protection during the summer from the burning sun, and a good protection of top iir Avinter material!^ pnrraits injury from' thaAvihg and freezing, and especially iii that class of soils which has a tendency to spreAV up. Some pasturing in many cases is rather a benefit than otherwise, but Indiscriminately done, as is often the e.aso, considerable damage- is often done, which, considering the amount of benefit procured m tlio Avay of feed, is not profitable. All seedfc may be divided into three parts —the germ, the body, .and the skin. The germ Is the part which contains the life principle; the part which sprouts, and is there ore, the life and perfection of the germ or chit depends tho value of the seed. The body Is is the reserve fund of the germ, which supports' the embifro sprouts, both top and bottom, or stem and root, until the root is- adA'anced enough to food upon thesoil. During this process the body is generally absorbed entirely to support the plant.' The skto of seed is merely for protection; it protects the Interior been dead these two years, nnd there Is no one left to till the ancestral acres.
