About That Cyclone.
The people of this city and section of
.Nebraska viewed at a safe distance ,
Monday afternoon , what appeared to he
a formidable and destructive cyclone ,
but which transpired to be quite an in
nocent demonstration when the facts
and details became known. The stately
wind-aud-dust column , joining the earth
and clouds , as it passed with delibera
tion along the north-western horizon ,
from south-west to north-east , caused
terror to many hearts in this city , and
jnauy retired to their cellars until the
threatening clouds had dissolved. The
cloud could be seen Ironi all over- this
.section , Curtis , Hartley , on the Imperial ,
on the Beaver slope ; and at each separate
point it was the opinion of many that
the storm was close at hand. In this
city , many thought the storui to be
within a few miles , when in fact at the
closest point it was about fiften miles
away. The sight will long be remem
bered by hundreds of people , to whom
the experience was excitingly new.
The storm formed in the north-eastern
corner of Hitchcock county , ( about the
north-west corner of section 10-4-31 , a
witness reports , ) and moved in a north
easterly direction over into Frontier
county , where it dissolved in the neigh
borhood of Spring Creek.
The damage caused was but nominal :
Damaged some wire fencing at Casper
Hakencamp's ; a self-feeder and a little
roofing on one of the stock sheds at
Joseph Allen's ; demolished a deserted
sod-house , unused wind-mill and a gran
ary on G. W. Groves' farm ; and shortly
H afterwards dissolved by mutual consent ,
having fortunately missed about every
thing of value in its course.
The cyclone was about 100 feet wide
and moved with surprising deliberation ;
it is said that one walking rapidly could
have evaded it.
Chinch Bug Inoculation.
The Nebraska Agricultural Experi
ment Station for thiee years furnished
inoculated chinch bugs for the purpose
of ascertaining whether or not this
method of fighting the insect was prac
tical. It was learned during this time
that , where instructions were followed
faithfully and the climatic conditions
favorable , the disease worked well. On
the other hand , where conditions were
unfavorable and instructions only in part
or not at all complied with , the results
were almost invariably negative.
Since no supply of the infection can
be obtained from private sources by our
farmers , the pressure has been sojjreat ,
recently , for a continuation of this work
here that the university has concluded
V -f to send out a limited supply of the fun
gus to those who are sufficiently inter
ested in it to give it a fair trial. It can
be obtained by writing to the Depart
meiit of Entomology , .University of Ne
braska , Lincoln.
How He Deals With Them.
L. E ! Larson , a farmer in the neigh
borhood of Chadron , uses the following
recipe in his efforts to control the grass
hoppers : "Put tablespoonfuls of
Paris green into three gallons of water ,
and stir well until thoroughly mixed ;
then stir in bran until a thick niash is
formed : Care must be taken to keep up
the stirring as the tendency of the Paris
green is to settle to the bottom. The
mixture is to be thinly scattered on the
bare ground between the edge of the
field and the growing crop , being care
ful not to scatter it upon the grass or the
crop , as it will poison the feed. Mr.
Larson reports the ground upon the
borders of his field literally strewn with
the dead hoppeis within a week of the
application. He says they will forsake
all other feed to eat the bran. "
Cards are out announcing the wedding
of Mr. Joseph Albert Wells and Miss
Mary Harriet Howell at Southold , N.
Y. , on July 5th. They will be at home
in Toronto , Canada. Mr. Wells will be
remembered by many of our readers as a
clerk in the dry-goods store conducted
here , not many years since , by his father
of the same name , and will join THE
TRIBUNE in expressions of congratula
