The several areas each have their pe
culiarity of weather, which needs be
taken into account when either prog
nosticating, forecasting, judging or pre
dicting the weather changes. The area
of tho Missouri valley, or the region ex
tending from Manitoba on the north to
the Gulf on tho south has a variety of
wind movement styled the norther.
This belongs to the straight surface
wind type of air movement, as distin
guished from line-storms or circular
storms, and calms, and is one of the
modes by which air is pressed to the
north, and returns to the south in the
varied influences connected with the
annual march of the earth round the
sun; and should possibly bo noted by
the readiness of the declination pendu
lum on occurrence if not otherwise indi
cated in time for forecasting.
The cold waves are more generally
connected with the descensional typo of
circular winds, when the very cold air of
the upper regions descends to the earth's
surface giving readings of tho thermom
eter of 20 to 30 degrees below zero.
The radiation weather is not so much
that the heat at the earth's surface
ascends the descending air current and
radiates into space, as that the warm air
at the surface moves laterally away
from the descending cold wind.
The norther commences with a south
erly wind, and closes with a northerly
wind. Coffin marks a pole of the winds
(which varies) coinciding near the mag
netic pole, which would give meteoro
logical meridians and parallels varying
from those geographical. It would be
in the interest of meteorology it these
were platted. This would give the
norther winds on the Atlantic coast as a
more north west wind, and on the Pa
cific coast as a more north east wind,
and storms moving in line with the
meteorological east and west. It would
be in the interest of readers of weather
if they noted the peculiarity of the
norther type of storm, and its sequence
of weather, that they may judge of its
presence, and what might be expected
to follow. Tho norther class differs
from the west or east class of straight
winds, which latter should possibly have
effect coinciding with the force marked
by the horizontal pendulum.
In the norther and other straight
wind types of storm, tho wind varies do
not oscillate much. This oscillating
marks the presence of the circular types
of wind. With declination force as
paramount, the wind should be
meteorological south connected with
horizontal force the wind would be a
resultant, as all the types are always
more or less present- The wind may be,
or may move to the west or east from
direct south, but not going entirely
round the sky as in the circular storms.
In the Missouri valley area, when the
wind is west from south, there will be
none or very little rain or snow in the
sequence. Should the wind be east
from south, it would mark rain or snow,
and the amount would be measured by
the distance from the south of the east
wind, and length of time blowing: This
latter was noted by Sias in his descrip
tion of a Texas norther, Ferrell, p. 215.
'As sequence of weather in the norther,
-the wind becomes low or swings for a
time, then changes from southerly to
north. Should rain or snow follow, it
will rain or snow as soon as the wind be
. oomes northerly. Should it not, there
- will be but little, as the north or west
wind soon floats the moisture away.
The study of the weather by thet
peadalum readings of force, should 1
mark a progress in the science of meteo
rology. Not that the magnetic currents
control the atmospheric currents, but
that each is controlled by the force of
motion present. And, should the effect
be seen earlier in the magnetic move
ments than in the atmospheric move
ments, there would bo room for forecast
ing. But there is still to be noted a
rain factor and to be determined. The
observer may judge of the to be weather
by determining the class of storm pres
ent, which is followed by its sequence
till it closes. E.J. Cocch.
Editor Joubxax: In reply to Mr.
Reed's article in last week's issue, would
say he could not have given us a better
recommendation of our land, and the
conditions we have to offer the settler,
than he did in his article on "California."
We can meet every requirement he sets
forth, and more than he claims for
Riverside. We have as good land
as there is to be found in the state of
California, according to the reports of
the Berkley University. It is a very
deep alluvial soil and a great portion of
it is "mica land," which has not a supe
rior for the growth of all kinds of fruits,
both deciduous and citrus, and conceded
to be by experts especially adapted to
the Washington navel oranges, which
grow to great perfection on this land,
with the advantage of maturing from
one to two months earlier than at Los
Angeles or Riverside, which is two hun
dred miles south, which gives us the
benefit of a home market at better pri
ces. Our land is under a perfect system
of irrigation, "the Church system,"
which is never failing, as it has first use
of water as it comes from the mountain,
in fact, our system is as perfect and per
manent as the subterranean lakes of
Riverside, for the seepage from the
canals has so filled the soil as to render
surface irrigation unnecessary. The
soil is so deep, the water does not in
jure the roots of trees or vegetation by
being too great in quantity. Clovis,
having large lumbering interests, we
have guaranteed to us preference at all
times for labor to actual residents of
the town, at not less than $1.35 a day
and much more as.the employe becomes
more competent We are offering to
sell town lots for $05 and with each lot
give the free use of one acre of this land
for five years, and at the end of that
time to sell the acre at present price and
terms, which is $66, which includes a
perpetual water right, in four equal an
nual payments at seven per cent inter
est, The building and loan association
offers to loan two $200 on two lots,
which is ample to build a good cottage,
on a monthly payment of $3.40. which
pays out in six years. Where can any
one get so much for so little money, and
with the chance of making their land as
valuable as it is at Riverside? If my
friend Reed has anything better than
this to offer, I would like to know it.
This enterprise has the endorsement of
men who represent more than $50,000,
000 capital and would not give recogni
tion to an enterprise of a snide charac
ter. Rev. Z. C. Rush of Albion, not
only has given it his endorsement, but
has purchased ten acres of this land and
expects soon to return thera

Under date of Feb. 19, George Brod
fuehrer writes from Manila, giving some
particulars of the fighting of our com
pany in that section. He says that
companies K and D are now called the
hornets' nest. Most of the
boys have given up hopes of receiving
their Christmas presents.
Tho letters received from Manila since
the beginning of fighting show a re
markable change of sentiment toward
Colonel Stotsenburg. The boys ate
simply following in the footsteps of their
fathers in the war of the rebellion. Al
most every regiment had a grievance
against its officers until the fighting
really began. Then the worthy officers
soon won the respect of their men, and
as the trouble went on they won their
admiration and their devotion. The
ordinary grumbles soon disappear when
a regiment wins victory under compet
ent officers. Lincoln Journal.
Camp Stotsenburg, P. L
Dear Father and Mother: We are
camped out in the hills east of Manila.
We have been having a pretty hot time
of it for the last four days or since last
Saturday night. Our regiment was the
first in the fight, and in the thickest of
it all the time, and I am thankful that I
am able to tell yon I am alive and not
hurt Wo have driven the natives to
the mountains. We don't know where
the next outbreak will be, or when it
will be. Onr company lost one man,
and Bob Childers was shot through the
hand not bad. We fought Saturday
night all day Sunday, and Monday af
ternoon. I haven't had my shoes off for
six days, but I am feeling fine. I am
sitting down against a bamboo shack,
writing this with a guitar for a writing
desk. Our regiment lost six men and
ahout twenty wounded, and it was a
miracle we didn't lose more, for we made
two awful charges. During Sunday's
fight our regiment and Utah artillery
with two field guns took four block
houses and one powder magazine, and
advanced eight miles to the waterworks,
which we are holding at present Ma, I
don't want you to worry yourself Bick
now, for I am all right and think we will
start home before long. We have as
brave a colonel and as good a man as
ever went into battle. We all think he
is all right He was in front all the
time. I will have to close. Will write
again as soon as I can. Give my love to
all. I am your loving son,
John Gardner.
IasarseeU Still Betremttag.
Manila, March 27. 1135 a. m. The
Americans this morning found the im
portant town of Polo and a number of
small villages west of the railroad de
serted and burning. They are advancing
along the railroad.
The day's work of the United States
troops consisted of storming the succes
sive trenches. The Filipinos occupying
them were completely hidden and the
enemy poured a strong fire from every
trench until they were disturbed by a
flanking volley, when they would dis
appear into the woods and jungle, only
to make a stand at the next line.
The American loss was remarkably
small, seven being reported killed and
25 wounded. It is known that tke Fili
pinos were so protected that they suf
fered little. No dead iasargents
in the trenches.

New Tore, March 28. A dispatch to
the Herald from Manila Tuesday says:
The armed gunboat Laguna de Bay at
tacked the insurgents at Bulacan. Three
Americans were wounded.
MacArthur's division has crossed the
Marilao river on a pontoon bridge and
is now advancing northward. Fighting
is expect ed this afternoon.
The insurgents attacked the Amer
icans last evening at Marilao. but were
repulsed with severe loss. Our loss was
five killed and 14 wounded.
Garcia, a native general, came down
from Dagupan by train with 1,000 rifle
men and 4,000 bolomen and took posi
tions at Marilao. A river was between
the Americans and the insurgents.
The South Dakota volunteers and the
Third artillery were thrown forward.
The South Dakotans charged brilliantly
across an open space on the east of the
railway to the edge of some woods.
They lost 10 killed and 11 wounded,
two mortally.
Marilao was taken, with 16 prisoners.
On the left the insurgents in a trench
east of the river offered a stubborn re
sistance, lieutenant Critchlow, with
10 guns of the Utah battery, and lieu
tenant Davis, with a navy Colt gun,
forced 30 insurgents in a long trench on
the opposite side of the river to surren
der at the close quarters of 100 yards.
The rest of the insurgents got out with
severe loss.
Otis Pushing Forward te Xalelea.
Manila, March 28. General MacAr
thur's division spent the night and
morning at Newcanayan, the next sta
tion beyond Polo. After reconnoiter
ing his front, he pushed along the rail
road toward Malolos. If the statement
of the 35 prisoners captured yesterday is
true the main body of the enemy has
retreated to Malolos. There are no
more trenches to encounter, although
over 30 villages, including the larger
settlements of Bulacan and Gudguiuto,
The shelling of Paranaque was not
premeditated. The turret ship Mon
adnock anchored off the town and the
insurgents, emboldened by the long
silence of the war ships on guard duty,
opened fire on it with muskets, with
the result that one man was killed and
three were wounded. The Monadnock
then destroyed half the town, includ
ing the church.
Strategic Move Shifts late a Parsalt aad
Washington, March 28. The third
day of the fighting north of Manila
brought little of a decisive character
from which war department officials
could judge what the final outcome of
this movement would be. In all official
quarters the most intense interest pre
vailed. Early in the day General Otis
cabled the war department a brief dis
patch summing up the situation. It
disclosed that severe fighting was going
on, with our forces advanced as far
north as Marilao, while the insurgents
under Aguinaldo were being driven
back with considerable slaughter. This
and the press dispatches satisfied the
officials that the strategic movement of
entrapping the insurgents between our
lines had not been as successful as de
signed and that the move had now
shifted to a retreat by Agninaldo'e
forces and a pursuit by onr troops. The
insurgent retreat toward Malolos was
slow and dogged and advantage was
taken of one after another of lines of
intienchments, the bnrning of bridges
and the interrupting of communications.
General Otis' dispatch was sent Monday
evening and summed up the work of
three days. That the fighting would
proceed into the fourth day was shown
by his closing sentence: "The column
will press on in the morning." This
refers to today. The engagement has
now shaped itself so that it is looked
upon as more of a chase than the execu
tion of a strategic movement.
With the American base advanced to
Marilao and the insurgent base forced
beck to Malolos, the main bodies of the
two opposing forces are about 10 or 12
miles apart. This could be quickly
covered in a forced march under fair
conditions, but it is 12 miles of inumer
able difficulties and obstacles, which
our troops must cover before they reach
the insurgent stronghold. It is expected
that the engineers with MacArthur are
hastily repairing the burned bridges.
This will permit the artillery to be
taken forward as well as the infantry
columns. It is expected that every mile
of the distance to Malolos will be con
tested by the insurgents, for General
Otis reports that it is a stretch of coun
try covered with the intrenchments
thrown up during the last three
months. Our men, therefore, must
advance slowly, repairing the roads
as they go, and at the same
time they must fight their way through
well made rebel intrenchments. Serious
as the work is there is no lack of con
fidence among officials here as to the
outcome of the campaign. Malolos is
the insurgent capital where the assem
bly has been sitting and the insurgent
government has been in operation. It
represents more to the insurgents than
any other place in the Philippines, and
little doubt is entertained that they
will make a desperate stand there. The
tactics of Aguinaldo are taking him
gradually beyond the range of Admiral
Dewey's guns. While the insurgents
jvere at Malabon on Saturday they
were within a mile of the water front
and easily within range of the fleet.
But as they have moved northward,
they have gradually moved away from
the bay. Malolos is about seven miles
back from the bay, although there are
shallow estuaries which would permit
light draught boats to get within a
mile or two.
The duration of the battle is beginning
to attract the attention of army strate
gists, as it is a very important element
fa determining ths strength of the mem,
the supplies of ammunition and store
and the spirit of the army. The firpt
blow was struck before daybreak last
Saturday and the fighting continued all
that .day, again on Sunday and on Mon
day. The reports show little night
fighting except in repulsing an insur
gent attack Saturday night. Judged
by the standards of great battles such as
Waterloo this is a long and intensely
arduous engagement But the fighting
about Manila is quite different from the
standard of civilized armies, as it is a
running brush conflict, with only occa
sional issues between organized bodies
of troops. The belief is expressed at
the war department that the Filipinos
are manufacturing the ammunition that
is being used with such recklessness.
The following is the dispatch received
from General Otis:
Manila. March 27. Adjutant Gen
eral, Washington: MacArthur holds
Marilao; severe fighting today and our
casualties about 40. The insurgents
have destroyed bridges, which impeded
progress of train and artillery. Our
troops met the concentrated insurgent
forces on northern line, commandod by
Aguinaldo in person, aud drove them
with considerable slaughter. They left
nearly 100 dead on the field and many
prisoners and small arms were captured.

Mallata to Captured.
M ANiLA.March 26. The United States
troops, under Brigadier General Lloyd
Wheaton, captured the town of Malinta,
beyond the Tulihan river, Sunday, after
after a sharp fight. Colonel Hairy O.
Egbert of the Twenty-second infantry,
was killed. Prince Lot ensteinr for
merly aide-de-camp on the staff, of Brig
dier General Miller at Iloilo, somehow
got in front of the firing line and was
shot in the side, dying almost instantly.
A German who accompanied him was
The American casualties Sunday were
much lighter than those of Saturday,
the total loss thus far reported since the
engagement commenced being 45 killed
and 145 wounded.
The Nebraska and Colorado volun
teer regiments encountered the first
strong resistance. This was at San
Francisco de Monte and in the sur
rounding trenches.
General Wheaton entered Malinta,
which is a small village of huts, at 1 p.
m. Sunday. The United States gun
boat Helena and other gunboats shelled
Malabon, about a mile northwest of
Caloocau, for several hours.
The insurgents made a fierce resist
ance to the American advance up the
railroad at Malinta. In addition to the
fatal wounding of Colonel Egbert, sev
eral men of the Twenty-second Infantry
and several of the Oregon and Kansas
regiments were killed.
The Third artillery, acting as in
fantry, with two guns of the Utah
artillery and the Kansans had a sharp
fight east of Malinta. The Americans
had but slight losses. Five Filipinos
were found dead and several were taken
Rebels Apply the Torch.
Manila, March 27.-9:10 a, m. The
Filipinos are burning their stronghold
at Malabon and their forces are fleeing
from the city in the direction of Malolos.
General MoArthur's division is pushing
toward Malabon. The insurgents will
make their last stand probably at Ma
lolos. The American forces did not occupy
Malabon, but are concentrating their
strength to strike Malolos. Malabon is
a city of desolation. The American
soldiers have been forbidden to enter
the place, for fear that the natives' may
still be lurking there.
Forty prisoners were taken by' the
Americans and it is estimated that the
rebel casualties numbered 20. The in
surgents broke their guns when they
were compelled to abandon them.

In view of the honse to house visita
tion of two Utah Elders in this city and
county during the winter and covertly
teaching that the Latterday Saints of
the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ
which we represent, are teaching "false
doctrine," and that the Utah church,
dominated by the late Brighara Young,
is the true church as organized in 1830,
we have invited them to discuss their
claims openly, which they are so assidu
ously pushing privately, hence our re
quest that the following resolution be
published, drawing the line, distinctly
opposing the recognition of the defiance
of law and sound morality:
Resolved, That the Columbus branch
of the Re-organized Church of Jesus
Christ of .Latterday Saints, located at
Columbus, Platte county, Nebraska, de
sire to be placed on record as protesting
against the seating of B. H. Roberts,
congressman elect from Utah, it being a
matter of public knowledge that he is
a polygamist in faith and practice, con
trary to the laws of the land and should
not therefore, in the interest of good
morals and decency, ba permitted a
voice in the legislative halls of the
United States.
Resolved, That the secretary be in
structed to forward to our representative
in congress of this district a copy of
this protest and action.

Doody, formerly of this .place. Upon
her arrival here Mrs. Perkinson pro
ceeded to the home of her father, Mi
chael Doody, where she asked her
daughter Lottie to leave the house, for
the reason that Frankie was somewhat
ill and that they had just returned from
P. F. Doody's, who had been taken to
the pest house for small pox at Chey
enne. The news spread like wildfire
and on the same evening our village
board ordered an investigation byDrs.
Hansen and Pugb, who msde no diagno
sis that evening, but advised a strict
quarantine, which was established forth
with. On Friday our physicians upon in
quiry received advice from Cheyenne
that one doctor pronounced Mr. Doody's
illness a case of small pox and four doc
tors denied it. The state board of
health was advised at once and the
board promised to send Dr. Towne of
Omaha to make a thorough investiga
tion. Dr. Towne arrived Tuesday even
ing, but the day before both Drs. Han
sen and Pugu pronounced the disease a
case of small pox in a very mild form.
Dr. Towne verified their diagnosis and
advised everybody to be vaccinated.
Tho patient is outside of the corporate
limits and with the precautions that
were taken by the village board, Dr.
Towne declared that there was not tho
remotest danger of contagion. Nearly
everybody has been vaccinated. The
schools were closed Monday, all chil
dren strictly prohibited from venturing
beyond their home yards and a guard is
stationed day and night to see that no
one ventures near the premises where
the patient is confined. Business is
carried on in the usual manner and
judging from all indications the small
pox scare will end with the present case.
