Mr. G.A.Lovolund guvo n short but very
Interesting talk boforo tho political econ
omy club Inst Wcdncsdny evening nnd the
practical workings of tho weather bureau,
and Its applications to QVoiy day life. Ho
suld in purt:
"The wonther bureau today is a diioct
dovolopmont of .ho slfrpat corps of tho
army, and Is nn outgrowth of tho signal
service of tho lute war. It represents ap
plied meteorology, anil lis yet Is not fully
dovolopcd as tho sclenco of meteorology
has only bueu studied during ,ho lust
twenty-llvo years. .
"The results and advantages of tho
woathor bureau aro often underestimated
by thoBO who know nothing about tho sub
ject. Tho woathor bureau has 1G0 s.atlons
nmploylnir 300 men nnd repnlven nnd an
nual appropriation of about $$00,000. It
saves every our. property ninny times
moro valuable thuu tho cost of tho bureau
"KorecasJng sovoro storms Is tho roul
and principal purpose of tho bureau. Of
all tho forecast!! mado, over eighty-two
percent mny bo considered us certain of
'Tho marine warnings aro tho most Im
portant Issued by tho weather bureau.
Thcso are forecasts of severe storms on
tho sea shore, or tho groat lakes, and aro
vory useful In showing tho sea captain
who. her It Is safe to put to sen.
"The value of theso forecasts Is easily
shown by tho fnct thnjthousauds of soa
cuptuliiB consider the warnings of Kuropo
Important enough to Justify their staying
in port, a day or two longer than thoy
"The cold wnvo signal Is next In Impor
tance to tho storm wnrnlngs. No cold of
unusual Intensity now comes unheralded
und thousands of dollars worth of proper
ty huvo been saved by those forecasts.
Tho cold wave signal affects nil clnsses of
people nnd when It Is seen, preparations
for cold weather aro mado by tho furmer,
cnttlo raiser, frui. grower, florist nnd others.
"In connection with tho weather bureau
are the weekij crop bullotlns. They have
been established for the purposo of get
ting reports of tho crop conditions nnd
thus frustrating tho designs of specula
tors who wilfully misrepresent tho con
dition of tho crops In order to affect tho
"Much of tho work of tho weather bur
eau Is done wholly without pay. It Is
wero not for this, on uccoun, of the small
appropriation for this purpose, tho bur
eau could not cover the wido Held which
t now docs."

so thut they wlll not loso any time un

put up u fence to shut out tho view, but
tho student, It Is presumed, will co-opor-

grand success. Those not wishing to pay
a quarter to soo tho gamo will havo
enough self respoct not to stand outside,
or crowd tho windows, nnd spongo off tho
team. A hint to the wise is sufficient.
I'or this opening gamo tho ladies wlll

AGRICULTURE COURSE CHANGED.
Professor Lyon has Just announced sov
crul lmpor.aat changes In the studies of
his department. Heretofore tho agricul
tural group has consisted of twenty-six
nnd ouo fifth courses, of which sixteen and
three llfths wero required work. It con
tained u largo number of different scien
tific subjects, which were thought .o bo
too general for this course. It is now do
signed to have a course thut will prepare
students for taking the civ.l sorvlco exam
inations In tho department of agrloul.uro
at Washington, and also to fit them for
experiment station work in tho different
stutcs. In order to bring this ubou., tho
agriculture group has been arranged with
but very llttlo required work, which
amounts to ten and one 11 Mi courses. This
leuvos u grout deal of time for uny spec
ialty In which tho student Is Interested.
For instance, If any student is going to
tuko an examination for work In ono of
tho divisions of the depar.ment of ngr.cul
ture, he must hnvo perfected himself
along one particular lino ot work. In or
der thnt ho shull hnve timo to do this dur

bo tuko as much timo ns possible In that
Tho department of ugrlculturo at Wash

ture soils, agrostology, botany, chemistry,
animal Industry, dairying, ontomology,
horticulture and forestry. The appoint
ment to positions In these divisions nro
all mado on tho basis of the iltncss of tho
applicant for the position and not by pol
itical Inlluenco. Examinations aro re
