June 4 all the northern Buckles iiuU
the lower countries on each side of
the mouiituin crest will be covered by
u great warm wave. The more ln-
ten.se that warm wave the greuter fear
and caution you Hhould huve about
that monster beaut behind It, making
a charge to the southeustwurd/ similar
to that of Roosevelt's iioseliorued
African beast. Somewhere between
the Yukon forests of northern Aluksu
and Now Orleans, during llrst week in
June, will occur a historic destruc-
tion of life and property almost as
relentlees as that caused by the new
go-carts of our country highways.
Above is only one chapter of the
gieutest storm period of 1821. A
frost, the most destructive of the yeiir.
will follow these great storms and
much damage will occur to eurly
crops, particularly in the Missouri,

course the topography of the land
surfaces—elevations and depressions
will out off a few lociilitle, but the
rains will be so general that I ■wllHioi
try to select the exceptions.
Monthly changes in rainfall for the
season have been calculated for near
March 16, April 14, May 14, June 11.
July 12. The longer period changed
near middle of April and will change
again near October 1.
I am expecting a hurricane in the
vicinity of Cuba about July 10. It will
be a very dangerous tropical storm
*nd much destruction ol properly can
be avoided by giving attention to this
forecast. I cannot give any further
Information about it except that it
will cause very cool weather in the
middle northwest. The path and de-
structive force of these hurricanes can
be foretold as correctly as I am giv-
ing the dally temperatures at Pitts-
burg. St. Louis. St. Paul and other o-
callUos, but I am not tlnanciully able
to work out that Important problem. I
would work It out If I had the money
to pay for the work An observutorj
has boon established in Cuba to study
the hurricanes, but, us they know
nothing about the cause of any kind or
storms, they cannot progress. I ab-
solutely know the causes of all kinds
of storms, but have only partly work-
ed out the problems buck of means

In tho passing of R. D. Parker, the
South loses one of Its typical old oltl-
sens of the highest honor, chivalrous,
courageous, honest and brave. He
loved his country and flag with all the
ardor of a patriot that ho wns. Court-
esy. promptness. Industry and frugal-
ity were all a part of his very nature.
A model cltlaon In civic affairs—
humble and tinsslflsh, he was also
naturally a devoted husband and
father and a home-loving man. What
greater tr'butes can be spoken of any
man. Pence to his ashes and repose
