St. Josei'U, Mo, April 13th. My
last bulletin gavo forecasts of the
storm waves to cross tho continent
from April 10th to 20th and tho
next will rrach tho Pacific coast about
tbo 21st, cross tho wostcrn mountains
by tho close of the 22d, tho great cen
tral valleys from 23d to Sfith, and
tho eastern states about tho 20th.
This storm will bo at its greatest
forco west of the Mississippi river,
and will probably develop thunder
stormi or other electrical disturbances.
Ilains will not b general, but limited
localities will have heavy downpours,
The warm wave will cross tho west
ern mountains about 21st, the great
central valley about 23d, and the
eastern states about the 25th. The
cool wave will crtssjthe western moun
tains about 21th, the great cent ml val
leys about tho 2(!d, and the eastern
sUtcs about the 28th.
We are catering tho cletrical age,
and tho subject of cltotricity attracts
k,.t,.iQ universal interest thanany other.
' .'cry much is being learned about tho
effects of electricity, very littlo as to
what electricity is. Tho books are
full of explanations in refcrnco to
magnetism, but the chapters arc short
on clcitricity . Tho latter is the
cause, tho foimcr the effeot.
, Tho orthodox scientists will ridioulo
this idea, but as we can learn but
very littlo from their arbitrary code,
tho writer long ago rebelled against
their authority. Their theories arc
utterly unreliable, and their teachings
aro prenicious errors.
Throw a pobblo into tho lake, and
numerous ring waves will spread out
in all directions. Tho moving pobble
is analogous to electricity, tho waves
to magnetism. One is tho forec, the
other tin effect. Tho bookB deal al
most entirely with the effect? and
havo very littlo to say about theciuso.
Long chapters aro written about mag
netism, very short ones about electric
ity. Tho latter exists without the
former, is not dependent upon it, but
without elcctrioity thcro can be no
Tho machinery of the universe is
oppcratcd by tho forco of electrical
currents, and wo aro rapidly approach
ing tho timo when elcctrioity will bo
connected with most of the mechani
cal contrivances of man, Iloforo wo
can attain reasonable progress, moro
attention must bo given to tho causo
tho original impuldo.
Wo know that magnetic iron ore,
the natural magnet, has lines of force
connected with it, but why? Wo dig
from tho earth what aro called mag
netic ores, and wo know that when
theso ores aro brought into contact
with other non-maguctic ores, tho
latter aro transformed into natural
magnets, and lines of forco aro set
up in them.
What is it that sets up theso lines
of foroo in tho natural magnets? The
earth currents, of course When wo
plaoe a natural magnet in contaot
with steel, the latter slowly becomos
magnetized and will retain tho liues
of forco after it is withdrawn from
the natural magnet. Tho sumo re
sult is tccurcd when tho steel bar is
so placed aa to permit a current cf
elcctrioity to pass through tlio bar, and
this is very strong evidence that in
all cases ourrcnts of oleotricity eon
utituto the causo of niacnotisiu,

Throwing off technicalities, dispens
ing with tho hard languoco used by
orthodox scientists, wo have the plain
naked truth that magnetism is an ef
fect of electricity, and magnets become
such by electric currents circulating
When those currents ccaso tho mag
net loses its magnetism.
Thcro aro satd to be two kinds of
magnets, but the only real difference
is in tho Ungthof timo they hold the
magnetic forces. Just as well say
there aro two kinds of lifo because
ono man lives a little longer than
another. Soft iron magnets aro arti
Gcal because thoy have no magnetism
except when we cause a current of
electricity through them. Hard iron
or steel magnets continue to conduct
tho electric currents through them
after the battery has been withdrawn.
The Bun is a great magnet through
which tho clcctrio currents constant
ly circulate. The earth is also a mag
net connected with tho sun, moon and
other planets by electric currents, and
any clcctrio disturbance on ono is im
mediately transmitted to all tho oth
ers. So far as the earth and sun aro
concerned, this has been so clearly
piovcn that tho slow coached orthodox
scientists arc compelled to admit its
Tho electric equator of tho earth is
whero the dipping magnetic nccdlo is
horizontal or level neither end dipping
toward tho earth. This dipping nee
dle is not hung like tho surveyor's
compass. It will not swing around
horizontally, but, being on a pivot at
its middle, cither end will dip toward
Tho earth's magnetic equator cross
es tho geographic equator north-cast
of Australia near tho Qilbort Islands,
and on tho opposite side of tho earth
in tho Gulf of Guinea, near the west
coast of Africa. It reaches its most
southern limit in Brazil, whoro it is
twclvo to fifteen degrees south, and
its most northern limit in India, where
it is its far north of tho earth's geo
graphic equator. All along that lino
tho recdlo remains level.
Going further north, tho north end
of tho necdlo dips toward tho earth,
till at tho magnetic north poles ono
north-west of Hudson's Bay, twenty
degroeB south of tho geographic
north pole, and the other in Siberia,
twenty-fivo degrees south of tho north
pole where tho dipping needle stand
perpendicular, pointing toward tho
center of tho earth, Going south tho
reverse is truo.
Tho magnetic nccdlo is certainly
thus affected by permanent electric
earth currents, and to theso wo must
look for tho immediato causes that
affect magnetic needles, produco nat
ural magnets, movo tho atmosphere,
causing tho wind to blow, causo evap
oration, start and conduct tho storm
waves, produco rain, hail, sleet, and
snow, organizo ana pratcu mineral
bodies, originato and sustain vcgctablo
and animal life.
Theso silent clcotrio currents aro
tho immediato sources of all power, of
all life, of all action, but in turn thoy
aro tho effects of moro remote cause,
and to find their origin wo must go
doepor into the subjoct.
Wo can neyer understand lifo and
uinttor till we co to tho fountain head
of lorcc, and tho study of electricity
will load us in that diroot ion.

A IIUEAIC IN THE .STATE SYSTEM.
If tho children of tho rural districts
of Nebraska arc to depend upon tho
city schools for thoir preparation for
tho University, or for their induce
ment to strive for higher education,
both opportunity and inducement arc
sadly lacking. There arc less than 50
publia schools in Nebraska upon the
accredited list of the University; and
of theso not more than a half dozen
fully prepare for rutranco to tho Uni
versity proper. This sentenco needs
only to bo read to show conclusively
that something must bo done if oppor
tunities for secondary education, or
prcpntoryvwork, arc to bo at all com
inensuratcrith tho demand.
It may simplify iho presentation of
this question to suggest hero the
outlines of such legislation as will be
necessary to secure this end,
An net tu establish county high
schools should contain tho following
1 Each county having a population
of five thousand inhabitants or over
(outside tho cities which may bo ex
empt us further provided in the aot)
as shown by tho last stato or fcdral
census, may establish; and ovcry
county tho assessment roll of which
shows $1,000,000 or inoro in taxablo
property (outsido tho cities which may
bo exempt) shall establish, a county
2 In counties of tho third class
(as ubovt) the county commissioners
may at any timo when they think
proper, or upon petition of one-third
of the electors of tho county, proicnt
to tho doctors of the county at a
special or general election tho ques
tion of tho establishment of such
3 Ifthc majority of all tho votes
cast at such election shall favor es
tablishing such high school, or in
counties of tho second class (as above)
tho county commissioners shall ap
point six persons, residents and free
holders of the county, not moro than
two of whom shall bo residents of tho
same township or city, who with tho
county superintendent of instruction,
shall coustitulo a Board of Trustees
for tho school.
1 At tho next general election
after such appointment, thcro shall
bo elected six high school trustees,
win shall bo divided into three classes
of two each, the term of offico of caoh
to bo one, two and three years roi
pcotivcly. Each year thereafter, two
shall bo clcotcd to fill vacancies,
D Tho couuty superintendent shall
bo cx-ofiicio president of tho board of
trustees. Tho board shall appoint
from (heir own number a secretary
0 Tho tax in no ono year shall ex
ceed tho amount of six mills on Alio
dollar; and when tho tax is levied for
tho payment of teachers' wages and
usual current expenses oftly, it shall
not exceed four mills on tho dollar.
7 Taxes to bt levied and collected
in tho same manner as other county
taxes (tho county is preuotioally or
ganized into a school distriot for tho
purposo of tho high school).
8 Officers of tho high school board
shall perform tho tUuah duties.
9 Tho Board of Trustees and tho
county commissioners by a joint volo
shall select the best cite that can bo
obtained without expense to the coun
Rwc v nmiv'P"
ty. The board shall purchase mater
ials and let contracts for buildings,
but not to exoced the amount in hand
and to bo raised by tho taxes of that
year. Tho Board may lcaso,buildings
for the uso of tho high school until
now buildings aro erected.
10 Tho board shall have power to
issua the bonds of the county for tho
purposo of erecting a building, or
buildings, under tho terms and con
ditions set forth in tho act.
11 No bonds shall bt issued until
the question has bcon submitted to
tho qualified electors, and two-thirds
of all qualified electors present and
voting shall havo declared in favor of
issuing tho same.
12 No bonds shall bo issued in an
aggregate amount to exceed 1 percent
of the last complcto assessment of tho
taxablo property of tho county for
stato and county purposes (less tho
assessment of cities exempt by tho
Ill In all othor respects, bonds
shall bo issued in manner similar to
the issue of bonds of school districts
14 Any city which shall bo certi
fied by tho stato superintendent of
publio instruction to tho county com
missioners of tho county in which
such city is located to havo estab
lished and to bo maintaining at tho
expenso of the city a high school of
equal rank with tho county high
school, shall bo exempt from taxes for
the maintenance of tho county higl
sohool and for the erection of its
buildings; shall havo no vote in any
olection called in connection with tho
high sohool; and cannot send students
to the high school, except on pay
inont of usual fees.

The spring should be pre-eminently a

Hut spring, it is well known, is ofton n
poriod of discomfort and disturbance in
the physical system. Important organs
of Jio body bocomo torpid or irregular
in their action, nud tho fact is instantly
reflected in tho mental condition of tho
individual. A disordered liver moans dis
ordered nerves and a dull and unsteady
brain. Anything which will bring the
physical system into harmony with bud
