Now Knglnnd experienced Tuesday
(September 0) tlio Hiimij atmospheric
phenomena which distinguished the
famous "Dark DuyM (if 17H0; in lessor
degree its characteristics wore repeated,
mid over very neatly tho same uxtont
of country. In this city tho day began
with a slow gathering of fog from all
tliu water-courses in tho oarly hours,
the thin clouds that covered tho sky at
midnight seemed lo crowd together and
descend upon the earth, and by sunrise
the atmo.Hiliero was dense with vapor,
which limited vision to vory short dis
tances, and made those distances illu
sory; and as the sun rose invisibly bo
hind, tho vapors became a thick, brassy
canopy th rough which a strange yellow
light pervaded the air and produced the
most peculiar olfocts on tiio surface of
the earth. This color and darkness
lasted until about three o'clock in tho
afternoon, once in a while lightening,
mid then again deepening, so that dur
ing a largo part of I ho time nothing
could lio done conveniently in-doors
without artificial light. Tho unusual
complexion of tho air wearied and
pained the eyes. Tho grass assumed a
singular bluish brightness, as if every
blade wore tipped with light. Yellow
blossoms turned nalo and gray, a row
of suntlowors looking ghastly; orange
nasturtiums lightened; pink roses
llamud. lilae-hued phlox grow pink, and
bluo Mowers were transformed into roil.
Luxuriant morning-glories that had
been blossoming in deep bluo during
tho season now were dressed in splendid
lnagonta; rich bluo clematis ilonned
an equally rich maroon; fringed gen
tians wore crimson in the fields. There
was a singular lumiuousness on every
fonoo and roof-ridge, and tho tree's
Boomed ready to lly into lire. Tho light
was mysteriously devoid of refraction.
One sitting with his back to a window
could not read the newspaper if his
shadow fell upon it ho was obliged to
turn tho paper aside to the light. Gas
was lighted all over tho city, and it
burned with a sparkling pallor, liko tho
oloctrio light. The electric lights them
selves burned blue, and were perfectly
luoloss, giving a more unearthly look to
every thing around. Tho darkness was
not at all liko that of night, nor were
animals all'eetod by it to any remarka
ble extent. The birds kept still, it, is
true, tho pigeons roosting on ridge
poles instead of Hying about, but gun
orally tho chickens were abroad.' A
singular uncertainty of distance pre
vailed and cominonlv tho distances
seemed shorter than reality. When in
tho afternoon the sun began to be visi
ble through tho strange mists, it was
liko a pink ball amidst yollow cushions
just tho color of one oi those mysteri
ous balls of rouge which wo seo at the
drug stores and which no woman ever
buys. It was not till between live and
six o'clock that the sun had sullieiontly
dissipated tho mists to resume its usual
clear gold, and tho earth returned to its
ovory-day aspect: tho grass resigning its
unnatural brilliancy and the purple dui
Bios no longer fainting into pink. The
tomporature throughout tho day was
vory closo and oppressive, and the phy
sical olVoet was ono of heaviness and
What was observed here was the ex
perience of all Now England, so far as
hoard from, of Albany and Now York
City, and also iu Central and Northern
Now York. We have dispatches and
letters from Portland, Mo., from Bos
ton, Providence, Norwich. New Haven,
Now York, Utica and all over Southern
Vermont, Connecticut and Western
Massachusetts. Schools wore dis
missed iu various places, as, indeed,
study was porforco suspended in those
which kept up their sessions; and many
factories also let out thoir hands when
their facilities for lighting wore insulli
ciont. Tho Baehelder Shoe Factory
at North Brookliold was one of them,
and tho Hartford Carpet Company at
Thoinpsonvillo whore it is said the
operatives wore afraid tho final trump
was going to sound. If thoro was any
danger of this it was a vory propo'r
tiling to do; for no ono could possibly
hear tho trump while tin mills wero
running. There wero truces of super
stition in various quarters. Naturally
many associated tho strange diirknos
with tho removal of President Curflcld,
and some felt as if it signilied his death.
Others thought of tho end of the world,
as so many did on the celebrated dark
day of 101 years ago.
Thai " Dark Day" pur nniw.wv. was
May l!l. 1780, when, after several days
of close, hot weather, characterized by
a thick, smoky atmosphere, between
ten and eleven o'clock in the forenoon
the skies thickened, and a fearful dark
ness set iu which lasted until the fol
lowing midnight, or from twelve to
fifteen hours. This darkness covered
all New England, extending west as
far us Albanv, southward along the
coast, and to the cast and north as far
as white settlements extended. Birds
slopped singing, and fowls went to
roost, tho cocks crowed at midday as
if it wore midnight, animals showed
terror, and the superstitious howled.
Then it was that Abraham Davenport,
Iu the Connecticut Legislature, said
that he proposed to be found at his duty
if the day of judgment did, come, anil
moved that caudles be brought ii.
Prof. Williams, of Harvard College
made record that day of a steady mil
in the barometer, and noted many of
the phenomena of color wo have de
scribed fnoootirriiigyoslerday. The dark
ness of tho following night was tremen
dous, so that there was literally no
light, and though the full moon rose
early in tho evening, tho heavens and
tho earth wore indistinguishable. Tho
explanation which has received most
credence since then is that the peculiar
state of the atmosphere was duo to the
coincidence of heavy clouds of smoke
from forest lircs with an extraordinary
moisture, which combined to shut out
all but the yellow light. This explana
tion applies very well also to the dark
day of October, 1HKJ, whon a similar,
though loss severe and extensive dark
ness, was known in Now England, and
another day of the sort which was ex
perienced in Michigan in 180:2. When
Nliramichi was burned over in lSl'i, a
great district in Canada and Maine was
visited with similar obscuration. There
have boon forest lircs of considerable
extent recently iu various purls of the
country, whoso smoke has been heavy
in our air, and the combination with an
unusual procipitation.pt' vapor probably
caused the phenomena ot yesterday.
Charles Mayiy if this city, a man of
known scientific attainments, oilers the
following extremely interesting expla
nation: "To produce a weather liko tho ono
Tuesday several conditions are abso
lutely necessary; first an almost abso
lute calmness of the atmosphere; sec
ond, a high degree of saturation of the
atmosphere with moisture, and third,
a cloudless sky; probaljly it might only
occur in tho fall or spring, that with
those conditions still a fourth is sup
plied, a relative colder tomporature
in the uppor regions of tho atmosphere.
It seems to me exceedingly probable
that the peculiar state was brought
about in this way: During tho foregoing
days tiio air was vory moist and warn";
almost no wind was blowing; during
tho night from tho Tith to the Gth the
upper regions of the atmosphere cooled
so far as to form a little Jog high up,
wmen siowiy grow until about ten
o'clock the Oth it had its greatest
depth, perhaps several thousand feet;
no wind blowing, the formed fog was
was not carried away or upwards, and
thus a layer of very lino but very deep
fog formed over probably an immense
extent of country. Certain tempera
tures are necessary, loo high tompora
ture below or too iow ones above would
create currents that would drive the fog
away: the dillereuco in tomporature
between above say several thousand
feet and . below, was perhaps not
more than ton degrees. Tho light,
when analyzed by tho spectroscope,
was vory peculiar. Tho spectrum on
ordinary days, about, say, tlueo inohe
long, had only a length of about one
inch; blue mid violet wore almost want
ing. while red, yellow and green were
well represented. The mixture of
these colors, red, yollow and green
produced tho peculiar voJlow tinge.
I'hoinoisturo line iu yollow was vorv
strong. More blue anil violet would
have "killed" the prevailing ellow and
produced our common daily light to
which we are used. Very peculmr was
I ho olfoot of this light on grass; il had
a dark bluelsh lingo, which was nothing
but a subjective contrast appearance"?
The rays to which tho green grass owes
its color wero till present in this pecul
iar light, but tho surrounding objects
had lost some of thoir blue and violet
color elements; they appeared too yol
low and by "contrast" I lie dark grass
appeared to our oyo with a more bluo
ish tinge, because blue is tho contrast
color of yellow. Water-vapor at a cer
tain stage of condensation lets only tho
red. yollow and green through. Tho
light has nothing to do with comets,
northern lights, or the end of tho world
all of which theories lound thoir be
lievers during tho remarkable forenoon.

The grasses of tho plains tiro main

growing about ten inches high, in a
single round stock, with two oblong
heads at tho lop of it; Hum comes the
bullulo grass, growing about four inches
high, which is curly in its character and
lies closo to tho ground; then there is
what is called bunch grass, which keeps
green at tho roots nearly all winter. On

Captain H. H. Hopkins cumo in from
Cottonwood Springs, Castle Valley, on
Friday afternoon, whore ho had been
carrying on a general mercantile busi

about to take the train for Salt hake,
that at four o'clock on Sunday last he
hoard the ominous sound of a cloud
burst, and on rushing out of his tent the
water struck him up to the waist. Ho
was able to keep his feet, however, but
everything around him tent, stores
and all their valuable contents -was
carried oil with the Hood. Ho stood
there without a coat, hut or vest, till
these articles, together with a valuable
gold watch, which were in the store,
being swept away along with the rest
of his property. For some time ho
searched around to sao what could bo
saved, but nothing was loft but a few
btirs of steel and some other things of
trilling value. Ho found a sack of tlour
lodged in tho top of u tree some dis
tance oil". Tho loss to himself will prob
ably amount to about S.0,000. The rail
way grade and culverts in many places
were washed away.
During Stimtay and Monday there
were cloud-hursts also at the head of

them into the canyon, so' that it is im

I am Phil Morris, fourteen years old,
and the youngest clerk in Covert Sav-ings-Bank.
The cashiar is my undo
lack, and he began at tho bottom,
where I tun, when he was a boy. Ho
says that a boy had hotter grow up
with a country blink than go West and
grow up with the country. He thinks
there's more money in it.
" If there's anything in you," ho
said ono day, "you'll work your way
up to bo bank Prosidentut some time.
Undo .Jack says and does such ipteor
things sometimes that peoplo say ho's
odd. Thoy tell about his being so
wrapped up in our bank that ho never
had time to hunt up a wifo. I notice,
though, that when father and mother
died and left mo a wee little baby,
Undo .Jack found time to bring mo up,
and give mo a good education,' to boot.
Oh, lie's as good as gold or Govern
ment bonds. Uncle Jack is.
We live in rooms over the bank,
whore old Mrs. Halstead keeps houso
for us. Underneath, wo do the bui-
noss. I hero s heaps of money in our
two bir vaults. Last summer-and.
mind you, this was while 1 was away
on vacation two men broke into the
building. Thoy came up stairs and
into Uncle .lack's room. Ono had a
bull's-eye lantern that ho Hashed in
Uncle Jack's face its ho sat up in bed,
and the other pointed a big pistol right
at his head.
"Tell us where the vault koys are, or
I'll shoot you," ho said.
"Oh, Uncle Jack," 1 broke in, when
ho was tolling mo about it, "what did
" What would you have done?" he
asked, in his odd way.
"I know what I wo?r7havodonc,"

" Ah!" Uncle Jack says, kind of half
doubtful, and thou wont on: "Well, 1
told them to shoot awav. And they
know as well as I did that shooting
wouldn't bring them tho keys. So when
they found thoy couldn't frighten mo,
the scoundrels Vied me, and went oil' in
a rage, with my watch and pocket
book"" That was last summer. Ono night
along in the fall Uncle Jack started off
down town. " It's Lodge night, and I
may not bo back until late." ho said.
"You won't mind staying alone a
great boy liko you." And of course 1
But somehow, after Mrs. Halstead
went to bod, I found I did mind it. 1
don't know what made mo feel so fidg
ety. Perhaps it was reading about a
bank robbery in Bolton, which is the
next town to Covert. It was thought
to be the work of Slippery Jim, a noto
rious burglar. And while I was think
ing about it, do.od oil' in Uncle Jack's
' Ow-w-w!" 1 sung out all at once.
And if ou'd woke up of a sudden to
seo ti rough-looking man, with a slouch
hai pulled over his eyes, standing right
in front of you, you'd have dono the
same. "What what do you want
here?" I sort of gasped; and I tried to
speak so lie wouldn't hoar my tooth
"Tho vault koys where are thoy?"
ho auswors, short and grutl. And thou
ho kind of motioned with his limitl I
suppose to show tho revolver ho was
1 was protty badly scared; but till the
same, I didn't mean he should have
those vault keys, if ho shot tho top of
my head oil".
""Come, hurry up," ho said, with a
sort of grin. And 1 noticed then that
ho had rod whiskers, and some of his
upper teeth were gone, so that ho
didn't speak his words plain.
" I should know you auywhore," 1
thought. "Strategy, Phil Morris,

I sot tho lamp down, and my heart

It was till done quicker than vou

I breathed -and listened. What I
