This disturbance will cause licavj
rains west ef the Allrghanies, and will
develop its greatest fores in thojeast
crn states. No great extremes are ex
pectsd for tho reuiaindor ot this
month. The last ton dnjs of the
month will average warmer than the
ten dsjeHpricedlng. General killing
frosts may bs expected in northern
portiens of the ootton belt from 8th to
10th and 14th to 17th of November.
Warm wave will cross the western
mountains about October 17th, the
great central vallejs about the 19th
and the eastern states about the 21st.
Cool wave will cross the western
mountains about the 20th, the great

Weather records of tha 1893 crop
growing season an now complete, and
indioate, to some extent, what the
eomieg winter weathor will be.
Whilo excessive drouths have been
confined to a few localities of small
extent, tha total area of rainfall 'defi
oienoy is large.
Of 112 stations oast of the llocky
mountains, 70 show a deficiency of
rainfall from March 1st to Sopttxiber
25th, and for the sauio period and
territory, only ten stations show a
large exoess, while 34 show a largo
deficiency. West of the Itooky moun
tains four stations show a deficiency
and eight an excess; thrco stations a
largo excess and ono a large dcGsiency.
Altogether n large deficiency of
rainfall has oocurrod, and this indi
cates that the earth's atmosphere, re
sponding to the demands of planetary
metorology, has beon expanding and
absorbing a largo amount of water.
That water would remain In the at
mokpherc, and the latter would remain
cloudless were it not for the iaflucneo
of the moon and planots. ' Altogether
the sun has a greater effect in expand
ing and condensing tho atmosphere,
than do all the planets and moon com
bined, but the sun's changes are so
gradual, that our atmosphere would
respond without causing rain, if thero
was no moon and no planets.
The latter cause very sudden
changes, and to them wo are indebted
for clouds and rain. This statement
will not be endorsed by the weather
bureau at Washington, but it is cor
The atmosphere i bow largely ex
panded and loaded with moisture.
That expansion has gone to its limit
before the middle of list month, ad
we now have before us a long term of
atmospheric contraction axd excesses
The reader must remember, how
ever, that univorsal exoess nor univer
sal deficiency of rainfall ever occurs,
The coming weather will probably
give us excessive rainfalls at as many
stations as v e have had deficiencies
within tho past year. But this docs
not indicate that excessive rainfalls
will oocur in all eases where deficien
cies are reoorded during the past year.
The two extremes somstimes oeour
in localities comparatively near oaoh
Bismarck and Moorhead, Sah Antonit
and Qalvcston, Pensacola and Jack
sonville, Washington and Charleston,
Baltimoro atid Lynohburg, Eastport
and Portland, Maine, and Portland
and Olynipia. In oaoh of these oases,
the first-mentienod havo a defioieaoy

The general outliic of the weather
has changed, and we are now in a uew
rainfall program, No one weloemes
the change more than the writer, for
wherever rainfall is deficient, the ver
ifications of my forecasts arc not so
readily noticed. The careless cbserv
er does not noto tho ohanges of wind
and Umpernture ns readily as he does
rainfall, and there foro where a dreuth
prevails, ho conoludcs that my ; fore
etsts aro not voriGcd, although my
general foreoasts have reference only
to winds, temperatures and storm
waves, while rainfall forecasts are not
mado in every bulletin.
I havo just completed my calcula
tions ns to tho temperature and the
storms of tho coming winter. It will
be a "hard winter." I do not mean
that it will avorage excessively cold,
but excessively ohangeablo.
Temperature, liko rainfall, is ex
cessive and deficient in spots, and
while tho temperature of tho eoming
winter will bo about an average of
past winters, it will run to great ex
tremes, and those extremes will usual
ly occur in limited areas,
Weather conditions cf the 1891
crop season promise better general
crops than were made in 1893. In
Homo largo localities a groat change
for the better will occur. Old Mexico
New Mexico, Arizona, western and
southwestern Texas, will have a largo
increase of rainfall. Those countries
have been greatly tfilicted with drouth
for three years, but they have a bright
prospect ahead of them, and for sever
al years to come they will have an
abundance of rain, good crops and
Crcps arc never universally good,
and somo portions of the country will

Chemists have determined that
crops do not rob tho soil of plant food.
On tho contrary, the production of
crops adds plant food to tho soil, even
where tho crops are, for years, re
moved from the fields. Why, then,
do tho soils wear out and become un
productive? Tho worn out sous are
as full of plant food, or tho materials
found in plants by chemical analysis,
as are tho virgin soils, These facts
certainly prove that tho plants are not
fed from tho soil but from tho atmos
phere, and that the soil is incapacita
ted for doing its part in drawing nu
trimont fram tho atmosphore for tho
plant, A falso system of cultivation
is certainly tho cause, aud wo should
study nature's sy.lcm. Tho forests
do not wear out tho soils in which
thov crow, but enrich them. Of
thoir growths thoy return to the soil
only their leavc3, and if their woody
subitaucos ramo from J tho scil, the
Utter would leconio unproductive,
May not the mistake of agriculturalists
be in turning the soil? That is not
naturos way. Top soils are certainly
fitted for top roots of plants, whilo
lower noils aro fitted for bottom roots,
That appears to be true where naturo's
plan of cultivation is not interfered
with by man. Soils become packed,
hardened and theroforo unproductive,
but may they not bo loosened and
pulverized without inverting them?
Possibly turning tho soil upsido down
is as diloterious to tho plant as stand-

Again one of Webster ooanty'a
roost popular professional men baa
been honored by tbe nomination to a
position of worth on the strongest
ticket in the state. We refer to the ' '
action of the republican state oonven '
tion last Thursday, when they placed
in nomination as ono of the Regents
of the State University, Hon. Chan. W.
Kalcy, of this oity.
Tho nomination has given general '
satisfaction hero inasmuch as Mr. Ka
lcy is well and iavorably known' to a
majority of our people in this
congressional district, having scryed4
in. scvcralupublio offices of Big
nifiaanco with honor to himself
and fairness to his constituents. .Mr.
Kalcy was born in Union county,
Pennsylvania, December 12tb, 1846, '
and when seven yoara old removed
with his parents to Carey, Ohio, where
bo was raised on a farm. Here he re
ocived a thorough education in the
high bcbools of thatp!aoe. and Wittea '
berg eollcgd at Springfield, Ohio. lie '
then did educational work for foar
years, and in the spring of '74 eatae
to Red Cloud, and began the study of '
law with bis brothor Hon. II. S. Kaley.
Ho taught tho Red Cloud high sohool
ono year, was admitted to the bar ,ia
187C, and formod a co-partnership
with his brother tho same year the
firm enjoying a lucrative praotlce, ie
remunerative that after his eleetioa aa
county judgo 1879 he resignoi before
the expiration of tho term, after sey
oral months of efficient service m that
office In tho )oar:of 1879 he waa
married to Miss Cyrelia A. Widney of
Auburn, Indiana. In tho year 1881,
occurred tho death of his brother
and partnor after whioh he re
Burned tho praotico of law wit a
younger brothor, and tho same year
ho was. appointed by Gov. Nance
as a member of the state nor
mnl school board to fill tbe vacancy
caused by tho death of his, brother.
Ho waa reappointed in '83 bj Got.
Dawes and again in '88 by Got.
Thayer, sorvinu in all twelve year.
During tho year 1881, ho was eleoted
to the stuto legislature, t fill va
cancy, and sorved in tbe special
term of '82.
This concludes a briof sketch of '
his lifo, and Tijk CuiRF knowing hint
to bo a typical gentleman thoroughly
conversant with all matters of publie
nature, wishes him all the success
