St. Joseph, Mo., April 25.—My last bulletin gave forecasts of the storm waVe to •cross the continent from 28th to Mayj 3d and the next disturbance will roach the Pacific coast about May 3d, cross west of. Hockies country by close of 4th, great central valleys 6th to May 7th, Eastern States May 8th. .

Eastern States 10th. Temperature of the week ending May 1st will average about normal in the Northern and below normal in the .Southern States. For the same period • rainfall will be above normal in the Southern and below in the Northern States. • . My next bulletin will contain a general forecast of May weather, very important in relation to the crops. In my general forecasts of April weather the Southern States were to receive more rainfall than the Northern. ' How wonderfully well this fore- cant has been fulfilled and how Important to the crops this distribution of rain has been. It will be remembered that the reversals in February and March weather of this year were predicted and that these reversals would cause deleterious effects on animal life, and human health. Look at the results. Severe «olds, epidemical coughs and a large increase of deaths among old and in- We have not seen the worst of these reversals. They, will come,again, with increased mallgnance, in. September and October and again, at their worst, next December and January. These reversals largely increase the difficulties In weather forecasting. GOT THE HORSES- MIXED. XMxotf Mao QlTen a AUlledgevHIe No e by Mistake. ' ' An incident happened in one- of the livery barns in thia city last evening, «bout which neither proprietor or hostlers have a word to say. In fact, they are much inclined to become indignant if .questioned too closely regarding the happening., . • The story runs this way: Two men •trangers in the city , drove white horses to town yesterday and both had their hortea cared for at the tame place. Early in the evening .the Dixon man called for his rig and, without any thought of mistake, he started for home. Sometime afterward the Milledgeville gentleman arrived, and when the horse was brought out, be soon discovered tbat it was not his animal, A species of tempest raged in this horse hotel until it was discovered that the roan who had the horse was - responsible. As to whether the exchanged horses reached the hands of their own- en baa not as yet transpired, though there Ja no doqbt but that within a short time every thing t will come about right side np,». r FUNNY FREAK OF A FJSH.
