It may not come in the dajs of the children of this generation, but alt things point to a time when men cannot go to battle because the instruments of death will be so absolutely fatal aa that not one could escape; and there could be no war except for the possibilities of escaping death. CURIOUS WIND PHENOMENA. THE WH PPtO MAN GETS THE STAKE. "German of E. Werner, shows herself in a new and most interesting light In a brilliant story of ancient Athens. "The Man of the Golden Pellet," a story of the most intense and exciting order. Mrs. Belva A. Lockwood gives "Efforts to become a Lawyer." Agnes. Kepplier has a pleasant little essay on "Modem Word-Parsimony." An anonymous author discusses "Our Old Maids." "Life at a Working-Man's Home," by Charlotte L. Adams, is a singularly clever and amusing glimpse into a curious phase of life. The poems are by Helen Gray Cone, Sarah M. B. Piatt, Edith M. Thomas, and Ella Wheeler-Wiicox. The "Sanil Aagan" of the Plain*—Tricks of n»by Cyclone.—A Collapce. ! A curious phenomenon," said Pro- fwwor F. E. Clarke to a reporter, "is sometimes observed on wide plains where the atmosphere Is hot and dry. It Is the forming of miniature cyclones, or rotary storms, which, when occurring on a grand scale, ns they do in the western states, are tnown as tornadoes. after thP Kj 1When the Unlon Paclflo »»way was auw_the_being constructed the workmen hud fre- Amelie Rives qnent opportunities of witnessing the formation and progress of such whirlwinds, which, on account of the peculiar action they had on dry soil, were called 'sand augers. 1 They were especially frequent In Lodge Pole Creek valley, through which the railway, leaving the Platte rtver, runs northerly to near the base of the Black hills. This valley Is quite narrow—averaging about a mile In width— and Is bounded on either side by a rnnire of low, sneven hills. A Fan! OlTf« the Monrr to • B«dl 7 Beat** Colored Sloarffm-.

"Grind, grind, grind," sujs the laborer, as he aweuta over his toil. So it is, ever since man heard the mandate, "In the sweat ol thy brow shall thou eat bread," he has regarded work as a punishment, and too often seeks to obvivate the necessity by compelling somebody else to do It for him. The scissors' man grinds the steel blade; that.is correct; Mr. Wegg sought to "grind" Mr. Bo(Iln's nose; that was incorrect. The laborer growls over his toil and prouounces it a grind and that, too, is bad. Men can make toil what they please, a pleasure -or^-palui-those-wtnrnrefcB-rlrtliB torm- er, are they wt o succeed. Sometimts those also succeed who try to grind somebody else; but Mr. Wegg tailed in his little game, for all his schemes ended in floppy's throwing him into the cart of a gatherer of swill. But when they do succeed, they have enough conscience left to g>adtbem for their wickedness. Man's part is to act squarely with everybody, and to do what his bands flnd to do cheerfully. It is the only way to pass through life happily. STUDENTS OF prophecy have for more than eighteen centuries declared that the millennium Is near at hand, and with assured confidence fixed a time for its dawn, falling back upon the book of Daniel, more particularly for "the time of the end." Some of the old people will recall the Miller excitement of 1842, as also the Baldwin and Pitts prophecies. Because these interpreters of prophecy have failed so repeatedly, It has grown popular to sneer at all prophecy and regard the prophetic books of the Bible as referring to times long since passed and that the binding of Satan for a thousand years as declared by Jude to be but figurative. Yet there are indications to-day which point most strongly to universal peace, and there Is likewise grounds lor believing that with It will transpire that other prophecy of a return of IsraqJ to loved Judea. 80 speafc many thoughtful, reflective men of to-day, and some of them, too, not theologians! There is |now In session a congress numerously attended, looking to international arbitration, a measure inaugurated by General Grant and by which "The first Indication of the approach of one of these 'sand angers' would be the formation, hero and there In the valley of little whirligigs of dusty winds, picking up bits of straw, paper and other uncon- sldered trifles, sometimes waltzing Into camp and flirting with the canvas tenta or scattering the embers and ashes of outdoor cooking places. "These baby cyclones would Increase In number quite rapidly, and then be whisked away by strong current* of air, r -ing from no one knew where, but all dm. ing across tho valley toward the easiorn range of hills, over which would then be seen advancing a funnel shaped cloud, lite that seen over waterspouts forming at aea. . * "From the under surface of this low lying cloud a swaying tongue of lead colored vapor would prolong Itself toward the earth, from which, to meet It, would rise a cloud of dirt and sand. This earth column would rlsa higher and higher, with a whirling motion, becoming more compact all the while, until the blna black vapor and the brown mass from below would unite above, and the completed, awiftly whirling coluu.u commence moving slowly down from above on Ita way across tho valley. "While Its forward progress was usually slow, its rotary motion about Its vertical -a»lB-^voald—bo very rapid; and~so dense would bo the mass of sand gathered up by It that when the column touched the earth It would scoop out a shallow channel like the dry bed of a small stream. Hence its name of sand auger. "The diameter of these angers seldom exceeded fifteen or twenty feet at the ground, but their bulk increased with their height until they were merged Into the brond surface, of the thick, murky vapor from the cloud above, from which electric flashes frequently played. When this occurred large hailstones would be formed, which would be thrown, by cen- trllugal force, apparently out from the revolving storm. They would be found to be, almost invariably, In tha shape of flat disks, sometimes three Inches In diameter and an Inch thick, and made up of layers of Ice and sand. "One such 'sand anger' passed near an engineers' camp whore I was at work and carried off a tent or two. It then grazed tho edge of a corral near by, cutting away one angle of an adobe wall, and, sweeping by the house itself, left every pane of glass In the one window as neatly ground as If done by a sand blast tnachlDe "Passing on, the tents the 'auger' was carrying off became entangled In the telegraph wires running through the valley, and after dragging down two poles the cyclone collapsed, leaving beneath, when b^l^™ 0 ™* S*!
