The story of the successful campaign of Bode's fast trotting horse is told by the Bugle: On the 2d of August W. L. Rossing left Bode with Vyzant, 11,114, time 2:441, to win glory and cash on the turf; and time has proved that he did not go in vain. Tho first race in which Vyzant was entered was at Joliet, 111., Aug. 7, where ho trotted four heats winning the first, third and fourth. Time 2:21, 2:10i, 2:18i, 2:18J. The second heat was lost by Mr. Bossing's attempt to save his horse, Chas. Marvin winning tho heat by four inches. From Joliet Vyzant was taken to Milwaukee, and entered the race there Aug. 14; winning three straight heats, walking under the wire in every heat. Time, 2:21, 2:20, and 2:20f. The next mooting was at Chicago, Aug. 21. Vy- zant won the first and second heats in 2:17i and 2:18J. He was well in the lead in tho third heat when he struck himself and broke, losing the heat. The fourth heat was lost by a scalper, which had not been properly buckled, slipping under his foot. This was the first and only race lost by Vyzant on the trip, he taking third money. Independence was next on the list, Aug. 28, here Vyzant won the third and fourth heats. In the second he was set off five lengths behind the field, but come within a neck of winning the heat, trotting the last half in 1:041 or a 2:09 gait. The third heat he won in 2:19i. The fourth heat was postponed until the following day when he walked under the wire in 2:19, ten lengths ahead of the field, amidst such shouts as "plenty of time," "don't hurry," "turn around and back him in," elc. The last of the circuit was Des Moines. Here the great horse trotted two heats in the mud, Sept. 7, winning in 2:20* and 2:25i. The track was ten seconds slow and the horses were compelled to trot in the fifth place from the pole, making the track two seconds longer. The race was postponed until the following day. The track was still four seconds slow, but Vyzant won by several lengths in 2:19. This made a total of 14 winning heats, and omitting the two heats trotted in the mud at Des Moines, making an average time of 2:19, a remarkable record. Mr. Rossing returned to Bode with his horse Tuesday, Sept. 11, having been gone five weeks and in. that time winning purses to the amount of $1,375. .

WHAT KIND OF A WIND WAS IT? A Discussion of the Rig Storm With a Scientific Theory Thrown In. The Chicago Tribune in tho same editorial in which it wue stated that 76 were killed in Kossuth and that whole forests were mown as with a scythe, discusses tho nature of, the twister which swept over us a week ago. It says: Observers state that west of Emmetsburg there appeared to be three seper- ate clouds, one close to the ground and the others higher, and that these were supposed to have united a few miles further along, tho result being a great intensification of the tempest fury. But all through its course the track of the storm was much wider than that ordinarily exhibited by tho tornado, improperly called a cyclone. Tho path swept by the tornado usually is of narrow width and the wind whirls furiously around a rapidly advancing central point. In this case the path was a broad one, and the whirling motion ap- la- Fine Groceries SEE- LOANS.

Jacob Dingman, who was killed by the storm north of Wesley, was a veteran of the little band who rode with Phil Sheridan in the Shenandoah valley. The Fort Dodge Messenger tells the story of his death: Mr. Dingman went to Kossuth county about four weeks ago to visit his son, Charles. Last Friday these two went to Algona to visit the county fair, Before they reached home rain began to fall and soon poured. They saw nothing in the storm to alarm them, however. Reaching home they put up the team and hurried into the house, They had a cave, and the son's wife, who was always fearful of a cyclone, had gone to it with her children, The father and son had been in the house but a few moments when the wind struck it, The time was about 8;30, it was pitch dark, and the rain came now like a flood. They heard no roar or warning sound. Suddenly the house was lifted from the foundation and moved several feet with a wrench which broke out the windows. Both men started for the cave, Tfyen came two more distinct wrenches, The men were still unhurt, but were obliged to cra'wl to make a way qut, Then came the final twist, collapse, and soatteration, In it the father was instantly killed by blows on the head and body, but the son received no Injuries beyond slight bruises. He was over his father in an instant, but there was not even a tremor of departing life }n the body, He was beyond the storm, Thanks to the prudent mother, the children were safe }n the cave, and she with them, but the borne was obliterated. Furniture and outbuildings, and the entire crop were blown away, a heavy loss to a young farmer, who at sundown that toward, independence pears to have been absent at the m.. jority of points, though it may have occurred at some of them. Director Sage of the Iowa weather and crop service is quoted as saying that he believes the storm was simply a high wind, amounting to a terrific gale, and that the history of cyclones (tornados) does not show many instances where " a twister" has traveled so far in a direct line, besides which none of the reports seen by him ascribed to it a whirling motion. It may be observed that tho storm occurred only a few hours before the sun was in the autumnal equinox, the equinoctial passage being made at 7:28 p. m., Chicago time Saturday. Doubtless very many people will insist on regarding it as an "equinoctial storm"— that is, one associated with tho solar movement over the line as a cause—in spite of the oft-repeated asseverations' of weather-wise men that there is no scientific warrant for the supposition. The meteorologists say that if the notion were well founded tho storm should occur at the time of equinoctial passage, which it seldom does, and the coincidence is not often so close as in this case. But it is true that a storm generally follows the spring equinox at an interval of a few days, and similarly that one generally precedes by a few Langdon & Hudson. 11 Dry Goods, _/ set Bis BTesfl ?;* The Porwith Bustler is authority for Story: yesterday Ji m Barber others were sitting }n front of son's grocery, Bob jeljow 4rew ft sua glens from bis pocket ^na focused fa n Karber'i woaoygrea b$ »fl, did wore them eected. The days the autumnal equinox. It may be interesting to compare this with the fact that the middle of the trade wind system, which shifts back and forth with the change in the sun's declination, averages a position which is a little north of the equator, which may be supposed to be due to the unequal distribution of land with respect to the northern and southern hemispheres, though it might be difficult to prove. And it is not hard to understand it as possible that when the sun arrives at this average position, a few days after the vernal and a few days before the autumnal equinox, the change causus a shifting of air currents in the temperate zoues, crowding them, so to speak, farther north in the one case and farther, south in the other, the perturbation favoring a storm movement, other things being equal. Of course this suggestion is far from constituting a proof, but the idea is a plausible one, and perhaps will be found on investigation to furnish the key to the mystery that hitherto has enshrouded the question of the widely supposed connection between the solar passage across the line and storm movements in the earth's atmosphere.
