STORM IS THIRD IN SERIES;
HUNDREDS HAVE PERISHED
Tornado Attack Started March 13,
When Disasters Occurred In
Several Southern States.
Chicago. March 25. Tho terrific
storm that dealt death over a wldo
area Is ono of a scries steadily in
creasing In force that has been bom
barding the western und southern sec
tions of the United States In the Inst
12 (lass. Within that period hundreds
of lives have been lost in tempests
of rain, wind and snow, with de
structive electrical arcompanlments.
Tho storm attack started March 13,
when severe electrical disasters were
reported from Georgia, Tennessee, Ala
bama, Ixuilslann, Mississippi and
Texas. From 80 to 100 lives were
lost in various localities.
Nine days later n stilt more terrific
blast struck the sumo region, with off
shoots running up along tho west bank
of tho Mississippi in the west and
into Ohio nnd Indiana In the cast. Chi
cago got a slight slap from tho storm's
tall In the blizzard of last Friday
which caused $2,000,000 damago in
wire connections. In other parts of
tho storm-swept area tho havoc was
greater nnd the Iobb of Ufo, ns tabulat
ed, showed 123 dead, with many others
supposedly unreported becauso of tin
crippling of tho telegraph lines.
Professor Frunkenlleld, acting fore
caster of the local weather bureau,
says that the causes for tho unusual
chnrncter of tho severe storms of the
laBt few days are unusual conditions In
tho upper atmosphere, of which little
is known. Tho storm at Omnha, ho
said, was duo to oxccsbIvo develop

ventor of n new
Illustrated In Hall
way and IjOco
ing. This device
Is marked by sim
plicity In struc
ture and opeia
Hon, which, as
the writer of tho
notice reminds us,
Is a necessary adjunct in the appll
mice Intended for use on railroads.
"Any new device which Is a radical
change from the regulation appliance
which may be In use Is always sure to
excite comment, both fnvorable and
unfavorable, and tho result is that
Loth lines of argument bring such a
device prominently to the notice of tho
general public, it is a well known
fact that frequently unfavorable com
ment Ih productive of much good, as
It very often brings to light some or
ganic defect which may havo been
overlooked, and remedies and Im
provements naturally suggest them
selves to the inventor. In regard to
the rail-Joint, It may bo said briefly
that It Is the result of many cnreful
iixporliuonts, and Mr. Ilarnhlll, tho In
ventor, has submitted tho resultH of
his experiments to a number of emi
nent experts, all of whom ngrco thut
the problem of forming a perfect rail-
joint calculated to meet tho" growing
demands of railway service has been
completely solved. It has been tested
and retested and Improved until the
present product appears to bo a per
fect article In tills lino or endeavor.
It precludes tho clicking of tho roll
ing stock In traislt, as well as tho but
terlng of tho rail ends. The track is no
more liable to spread than elsewhere.
A low joint is impossible, as one rail
can not spring below tho other. Fish
plates, bolts and nutB are necessary.
Reinforcements at the Joints add
strength whero It Is needed, and tho
laying of rails costB less than by
some other methods. It Is only neces
sary to raise tho rails eight inches to
lock or unlock, and in laying now
track tho rails can bo laid upon their
side and locked very euBlly, and then
set over right side up. Tho use of
bent wires is no longer necessary
where this rail-joint Is UBed."
Trains, Trainmen and Signals.
An eastern railroad has Issued a
special order Insisting that signals
when a trnln stops bo carried back
tc the required dlstanco: "Never
mind about tho engineer's whistle
calling you In." Hut It would help
toward tho efficacy of tho rule if tho
train crow were Instructed to allow
tho necessary time for taking the
flag back. Trainmen hate being left
afoot, and many accidents have been
duo to their hurry to get back to tho
train before it starts. This nvorslon
la natural and will always bo a
source of temptation to negligence.
Either there should bo a special com
pensation sufficient to overcomo this
reluctance, or the train should always
be held for the tlmo which experi
ment shows to bo necessary to carry
'out tho flagging rulo to tho lotter.
Monocle In Use 100 Years.
Tho monocle, usually associated
with the sterner although perhaps not
less vain sex, has been worn for Just
a hundred years. The first person to
screw a glass in his eye was, accord
ing to Sir Horace Rumbold, a Dutch
exquisite, the Jonkheer Rreele, whose
anonoclo startled the diplomats assem
bled for tho congress of Vienna. The
fashion spread rapidly. In Dr. Kltch
Iner's "Economy of the Eyes," pub
lished nine years after the congress,
ho deplores tho fact that "a single
glass set In a smart ring 1b often used
by trinket fanciers merely for fash
Ion's "ike. These folk havo not tho
least feet In their sight nnd are not
aware of tho mischievous conse
quences of such irritation."
Shadows of 8ound.
As there nro shadows that interfere
with sight so also there are "shadows"
that Interfere with hearing. This fact
Is well known to pllote. When, as In
donso fogs, tho boat Is guided largely
by the sense of hearing, there Is a
constant risk that these so-called
"shadows" may cut off tho sound of
tho fog homo.
In ccrtntn cases tho sound waves
seem to "Jump" Ilka bounding balls.
At tho distance of a mile tho sqund
is henrd perfectly, at two miles It .may
be impossible to hear It, whllo a mllo

Wldo World Magazine. i
Relict Fascinate Kaiser.
Dr. Leo Frobenius, chief of tho Ger
man Central African exploration oxpe
dltlon, who asserts that he has located
tho oxact alto of the lost Atlantis, has
Just expounded his views and the re
sults of his travels, before the kaiser.
Tho kaiser la much Interested In the
trophies that Frobenius obtained In
support of his Atlantis views, particu
larly the collection of terra cottaa.
"One Bees that these never were made
by negroes," was his majesty's com
ment. The emperor also thought the
torra cottns were portraits, as every
head is different. Dr. Frobenius ex
hibited the photograph of a Byzantine
imperial cnstlo which he had discov
ered in tho heart of Africa. He ex
plained that most ot his exploration
had taken place on British soil, but he
had run across the ruins of a Persian
city on Gorman territory. This state
ment evoked a spontaneous outburst
from the kaiser, to the effect that
everything must bo dono to enable a
thorough excavation of the ruins. Dr.
Frobenius, therefore, will probably
soon return to Africa with imperial
Goose and the Golden Eggs.
A'cortaln man had a gooso which
laid him a golden egg every day. A
foolish friend advised him to kill the
gooso and realize at once on tho fu
ture. "No," said tho man, "that Is not the
proper way. I know a hotter." There
upon he organized a company and Is
sued stocks and bonds which he sold
at a good round figure. Then ho gave
out the' report that the gooso had quit
laying. This enabled him to buy the
stock back at a low figure. Then he
gnvo out tho report i that tho goose'
was laying two eggs n day, which en
nbled him again to sell tho stock at a
big advnnco. After he had repeated
this process a number ot times he was
so rich that ho didn't care what the
gooso laid or when. Accordingly, he
Invested his wealth In gilt-edged se
curities, journoyod abroad, and vest
in for art. Ellis O, Jones, Llpptnoott'a
