a piece of ribbon of tho samo patriotic colors

Indiana Pharmacist predicts that this will
prove 11 hot summer upon tnn following
theory, which h.ii Ix-cn advanced by others:
Tlio weather mems to run in cycles of nlKiut
seven j ears; that Is, when wo lmvo 11 hot
summer, it is alwajs followed by n cold ono,
nnd it takes nlxiut mvcii j ears to reach an
other equally hot. It will bo remembered by
many that the summer of 1HU7 wns very hot,
and so dry that during August tho grass
crumbled under tho foot when trod titKiii,
Tho 81111111101' of 1808 was noted for Its cool
ness, the thermometer very seldom getting
nbovo Kldegs., nnd wo did not reach tho top
wavuof thermnlity again until 1871, when it
iviib extremely hot, Tho following summer
was cold to u remarkable degree. From
tla'ii 011 tho summers grow gradually
warmer until 18SI, which wns excessively
hot and very dry, no rain falling for over
11I110 weeks, nnd theru wen mora sunstrokes
that summer than thero has boon in all tho
summers since. The summer or IfcVW wns
quite cold; 11 few flakes of snow fell on tho
morning of Jul) I, followed bj hall in tho
nftci 10011, nnd during tho 1 est of the iiiout)
nud through tho month of August tho tcir,
pernturo was so low that overcoats vvc0

When tho west sldo was farms (ho country
roads ran every which way across them, and
many wero really private lanes, although
open for public use. In some coses the origi
nal owners gave deeds leaving theso roads
out on tho supposition that somo day thoy
would bo streets. When tho city camo along
and laid tho farms out Into rectangular city
blocks, tho old lanes reverted to their owners,
who wcro tho heirs of the original fanners,
tho lanes not having been included iu tho
deeds from them.
These holm hnvo multiplied and scattered
over tho country In somo instances, nnd In
other cases tho families liavo died out com
pletely In either case It is practically Im
possible for present purchasers to get a iicr
feet tltlototho parts of tho lots covered by
tho lines of tho ancient lanes, so that acros
frequent blocks run diagonally, wlndlngly,
dgag, and every other way strljis fifteen or
twenty feet broad, upou which people nro
afraid to build lest somo heir should turn up
afterward and demand couqicnsation for his
Interest or tho removal of tho urt of the
house upon his land. Short houses are
erected on many of thew blocks, and tho old
lano part is Isft for a back yard until somo
one comes along to claim It. Somo blocks
are entirely vacant soicly on account of this
shadow upou tho title of a part of them.
