Select Story. AN ARGUMENT FOR OtFE. It was a sli;in,fi'osty, Jiioonlicht liiclit but the fresh waters of Green river had not yet been chillet1,nntl they flowed rap idly onward, with confused tnurmurinrrg, as if itiinatienl to becomo a part of tho great Olilo. It was as lato as ten o clock when Rob ert Craig, a young lawyer, came upon a bridjjo that spanned n branch of tho Green River in Central Kentucky. lie was afoot, and he walked with a verv litrht sten, because bis heart was litrlit. lie had been successful in tho most im portant suit ho had ever been engaged n. He had pleaded his own case, and the court that had pronounced judgment in his favor was simply Miss Mary Lano the handsomest girl in the neighborhood, and as tfood as she was beautiful. She i ad promised to bo his wife. lint Kober (Jraig was destined to plead another case that very night, and before ess eminent court. Uo had no warn mg ot tins, however, when bo stepped upon the bridge and walked over the clear water mutteriiig congratulations to himselt. "Yes, I am the luckiest man livinrjr !" ho soliloquized, as ho reached the middle of the bridge. Tho bridtre was not a covered one.and lie stopped to lean over tho railing at one side, and looked down iu tho sparkling water that quivered in the bright moon-li-llit. "Yes,T am tho luckiest man livimi!" he repeated quite aloud,after bo had stood a lull minute gazing upon the ilowmg river. "Don't bo too sure of thai!" said a voice behind him. Robert Craij; turned with a start, and saw a tall man standing at the opposite hide of the bridge, leveling a ritle upon hnn. J le seemed very cool and deliber ate iu his iuanucr,and lie spoke in a tone mat was nam anil icy. At the first glance Robert Craig saw his danger, for he recognized in the in truder Ralph Moore, who, as ho was well aware, regarded mm with the bitterest hatretbfor the reason that both had been suitors for tho had of Mary Lan, and Ralph bad of course been rejected, He was noted as a man of desperate character although ho be'ongcdto a good family and ho was moreover known to bo tho best marksman in tho community. Rob ert CraiK thought of theso facts as he found himself standing there in the cold moonlight with that unerring rifle point ed at his breast. IIo himself was unarmed: there was no hope for succor on that lonely bildgo at that time of night; retreat was impossible as well as unmanly, resislanea was im possible, was equally out of the question. Ins enemy meant deliberately to take his i to, and he had tho power to do it. Kob ert Crai" realized all this, and felt that certain death awaited him. Tho terrible exigency tho very hopelessness of the case made him calm. "Ralph Moore," he Raid in a voice that betrayed no einmotion "have you come hero to waylay and murder me?" "Itobert unmr. replied KaIph,coldlv, still keeping tho deadly rillo at an aim, "did you suppose you could trample over mo and live?" His linger was on tho trigger, and tho fierce look on his face denoted that tho life he held iu his hands was not worth much now. "Rut sttrelv," said Robert Craig "you arc not wicked enough to commit such a crinio as I sco you conteiuplato I am un armed and nt your mercy. While l do not like you, Ralph, I never thought you capablo of a cowardly act. It would bo cowardly to shoot down anjunarmed man and you know it. You nro ugood marks man, but I am willinjr. to liyht you fairly if you think that a mortal enmity must necssarily exist between us, "Jlosli I Uo you think I am a tool t Do you think I can bo cajoled by your smooth talk? No, 1'vo got you Robert Craig, and you shall never live to enjoy your triumph over me. x on aro now within iivo minutes of your destiny. I will grant you that time to pray if you want it.

"Jsut what do you say to being hanged for murder!" "There is no witness near. It can never bo proved nirainst me." Robert Craig was silent. His enemy who plainly meant murder, stood like n statue, with his rillo still pointing at his head, and watching him liko a oat. There was an expression of savago exultation in his Itice.plainly vlsibio m tho mooniigni; and Robert Craig saw thatitivas idle to think of ask'nitr for mercy. Yaiious ideas went whirling through his brain. IIo thought of running away and trusting to flight, but ho dismissed tho thought, for ho could not escape tho unerring aim of tho relentless man con- froutinti him. llo thought ot rushing upon Ralph, and engaging in a desper ate BtrurKlo lor tho posession ot tho rillo but ho knew that would bo hopeless. Ho was twenty feet distant, and his enemy could shoot him down before ho could reach him. As if divining his very thoughts Ralph Haul, with a ucinomao laugh: '(Jli, there is no chauco tor yout run 'which way you will, I can bring you down before you go threo stops. Come, to praycrl You have only thrco minutes and n half yet 1" Robert Craig (stood motionless, mid with the B.imo coolness ho had displayed from tho beginning, ho said!

Do you notice thoso long, narrow, misty looking clouds in parallel rows tliat seem to bo advancing upward from behind Staten Island with tho precision and steadiness of a lino of battle? They aro tho advance guard of an approaching storm. Tho barometer has not given tho slightest sign, an ! it probably will not until that skirmish lino has reached tho zenith, which may tako hours, and yet I am as certain that a storm is coming ns though I saw tho rain falling." -uo you mean mat you can foretell a storm by tho clouds sooner than bv .i barometer?" nvbody can. Tho winter storms cspccially,annoutico their npproach somo- iimi-a uvu ur iineu uays in advance. Whenever you seo thoso narallel strines of cloud rising in tho southwest, and moving in ranks slowly across tho sky, you may bo sure that wet or snowy weather is at hand. Why should not tho clouds foretell tho weather? There cannot bo a storm or any considerable change of weather without clouds, and thero is almost as much perccptiblo dif ference in clouds as in faces, if people would but notice them closely." i;o cioutis always foretell storms! "No, some ciouds givo assuranco of fair weather. A very little practice will enable anybody to read this language of the clouds. It u linre like studying a language than you would suppose. You know itt Latin a change in the termina tion of a word changes its meaning. Just so a eh ingo in tho iorm of clou- s chan ges their meaning. It is no mere chance work, but a certain changj always means tho s.inij thing. Jf 'cirri' turn into 'oir-ro-strati,' every meteorologist knows what that means just as well as the boy tit the head of the Latin class knows tho difference between 'Hie' and 'Ilujtis.' " "Then the clouds aro not all of ono kind?" "J5y uo means at all. About eighty year.s ago, i.uko Howard, an Iinglish .junker, whoso business required him to take long walks in the open air, comple ted a classification of clouds that has ev er since been in general use. One ot the most wonderful phenomena ever wit nessed in the sky led Howard to study tho clouds. This was tho great fog of 187o, that overspread the whole of liu rope and part of Asia and Atnerica,reach ing to the summits of the Alps and last ing from ono to threo months, according to tho locality. The greatest terror pre vailed, and the end of tho world was thought to be at hand. "Howard noticed that there were three principal kinds of clouds, which ho called carrus, cumulus and stratus. Anybody can seo the differonco between theso clouds at n glance. Tho cirrus is the highest of all clouds. You must have often seen it in the form of white fila ments, sometimes called 'mare's tails' and 'eats tails.' Stretched across tho blue sky liko delicate lace work, it is very beautiful. Travelers say that on the summit of lofty mountain peaks from which they could look down upon tho heavier clouds, they have seen the wispy cirri floating overhead, apparently as tar away as when seen irom tlio earth. In calm summer evenings, long after sundown, theso clouds may bo seen re flecting tho most delicato tints of color from tho last lays of sunlight that illu minate tho higher regions of tho nttnos phere. "Iho cirri aro composed ot little crys tals of ice. Theso clouds and their de rivatives causo tho halos that aro some times seen about tho sun and moon. It was probably cirro strati that caused tho rent display ot moon dogs and circles recently nt Denver. Cirrus clouds indicate both storms and clear weather, according to tneir appearance. It thev appear in their most delicato forms after stormy weather, they aro a sign that settled weather is at hand. When thev show themselves in parallel streaks after lair weather has lasted lor some time, they aro tho first indication ot approach' ing change. Cirri, when greatly tangled and knotted, show stormy weather close at hand. If their borders grow faint ind indistinct, thero is rain coming. "Cumulus clouds aro characteristic of summer, i lie larmcrs call them thuu der heads when they poke their smooth. white rounded summits, glittering m the sun like silver nbovo tho horizon, In that form they aro tho forerunners of lo cal thunderstorms. Theso mountainous looking clouds sometimes actually exceed the greatest peaks ot tho Andes or linn alayas in size. When cumulus clouds disappear iu a warm, pleasant day, not very largo, distinct though son iu out line and resembling cotton balls, they indicate continued fair, dry weather. On tho other hand, when they grow lar ger, darker and more formidable lookiiu they loretell storms. Just before a ram they sometimes seem to throw off little lleecv clouds around their edges, (ioetho tho great German poet who was fond o studying tho clouds, said that as long as cuintilt have sharply denned borders am a white color, a eonunuant'o of good weather may bo expected. Cumulus clouds often form soon after sunrise am temper tho heat of a midsummer day. If thev gradually .disnnnear toward evu uing tlio weather will remain serene, but it as thu sun goes down, they grow darker and moro numerous, then look out for rain. Tho cumuli aro the cap! tills, or condensed summits of invisibh columns of vapor rising from tho earth, Tliey do not attain nearly so great a i.,.!i,i no i, ,.!..,.; n ii r i ii.iiii- io .uu i.ii 1 1. minium ttiu juiier.ir ly from half a mile to two miles linrh Cirri vary iu height from two or three miles to six or eight. "Tlio stratus is most common nt nigl and in winter. Thoso long ranks c clouds that I pointed out to you iu tho southwest nud which show a coming iiutiiieasi storm, uro a variety ot stratus, ihey nlwnys appenr in tho form stripes or broad, low curtains, covering more or less oi ino suy. The night strat us is lormetioi mists irom swainps.nver and moist ground. It generally rises and ennnges into smaii cumuli on summer mornings. Mho other kind of stratus appearing nt considerable heights iu the full, winter, and curly iu spring, is, ns I THE COLUMBIAN, VOL. XV. NO. 13 COLUMBIA DKM0C11AT, VOL. XLVI, NO. 4 havo said, an invariable forerunner of stormy weather. "Theso thrco kinds of clouds do not always appear iu their si in pi o forms. They aro fretjticntly mingled together, and four varieties of theso derivative clouds havo been distinguished. Tho cirro-cumulus consists of little roundish white clouds, floating nt a high eleva tion, nnd often resembling n tlock of sheep resting upon tho bluo background of the sky. In winter theso clouds fre quently appear beforo a thaw. Between summer showers they accompany in creased heat. They aro common in dry weather. "Tho cirro-stratus commonly nppenrs in shoals resembling fish in shape. Its popular name is tho 'mackerel sky.' It is almost a sure indication of npproach ing stormy weather. When it settles down into a thin veil, covering tho sky, and making the sun and moon loot dim, it is certain to bo followed by snow or rain. You will seo it in that form fol lowing thoso streaks that aro now rising in tho southwest nud covering tho sky beforo tho storm comes. "Did you over see a bnttlo in the clouds? The cirro-cumuli and cirro-strati nre natural enemies. Tho first named is a fair weather and tho last a foul-weath er cloud. "When they meet as they somo times do after a summer storm has par tially cleared, there is a war in the sky. Tho cloudy squadrons encounter in mid heaven to settle tho question whether sunshine or storm shall prevail. If the cirro-cumuli succeed, tho weather will clear; if the cirro-strati aro victorious, there will be moro foul weather. It is a war of destruction, and the battle usually ends by tho total disappearance of one or tho other of tho two kinds of cloud, all assuming tho form of tho successful party. "Cumulo stratus is tho grandest of all clouds, and so it is tho appropriate lore runner of great storms. It you ever hap pened to go up hill to tho Hudson when a thunder storm was gathering in the Catskills you must havo seen this cloud rapping on the mountain tops and hill ing tho great peaks liko a vast curtain. "Whenever you sec these clouds looming ut), you may bo sure that a violent chamre in tho ntmosnhero is close at land. Hie cumn o stratus consists ot .1 aver or foundation of dark colored utrnt. us cloud nearest the earth. Httrmntintrrl bv bulky wiles of verv dense cumulus, not white and smooth ko the fa r went 1- - - . . 'l er cumulus, but rough, dark and threat- etnng. "One of the grandest sights in the orld is tho maiestio march of tho cu- mulo-stratus clouds across a hilly coun try district in advance of a violent storm. Animals, as well as men, are intimidated by tho fearful appearance of tho heavens and show their fear by trembling ami lurrying to places of shelter. Theso clouds commonly make their appearance st in tho northwest, risint? black and threatening above the horizon. Soon tho rtimbliiiL' of boavv thunder is be.inl. and as the clouds annroach tho zenith, blotting out tho sun, fitful gusts of wind niise, followed by periods of oppressive calm. Sometimes a whirlincr motion is seen in tho clouds. Then look out! If a black funnel seems to dron from tho clouds to tho earth, it is a tornado, and nobody can tell what damago it may do. Tho cumulo-strati foretell-a storm sever al hours in advance. Tho longer they linger near the horizon the more violeut the storm is apt to be. "iho last class or rather sub-class of clouds is the nimbus or black rain cloud, wmcn spreads over tho heavens just ns ino storm begins. 11 is mado up ot a mixture of all the other kinds, nnd ap pears in every storm, but is seen in its most characteristic form in a thunder storm. Sometimes it approaches within 1 lew hundred feet (,t tho earth, and at other times is 2,000 or 3,000 feet high Whilo it always appears black or grav from beneath it if, in fact.surmounted by a snowy white cap of cirrus or cumulus, I havo sometimes, in tho hills of central New 1 ork, seen from an elevated sta tion ino passago ot a storm through a distant, vanoy. 1 110 glittering upper sur face of the clouds then presents a beau tiful appearance, whilo underneath they arc dark and forbidding, and the pour- tug nun nines, me lauuscape.

The work of the staff of officers ap pointed by tho Superintendent of tho Census to collect statistics relating to tho industries and manufactures of Now York city is nov approaching completion and will bIiow, in tho opinion of Mr. Chnrlcs E. Hill, tho gentlemen in charge of it, a very satisfactory growth b'uico 1870. In tho courso of tho Investigation by Mr.llill's deputies somo singular in dustries were brought to light. It was found, for instance, that some uso was mado of old shoes, but exactly what uso whs hard to find out. Largo numbers of old shoes were sold by rag pickers to cer tain men,who disposed ot them nt a good price. It is well Known 'that bits ot old leather mako tho commercial articlo known as Prussian blue, but only a few firms manufacture it, nnd tho new call for old shoes was evidently for some oth er purpose. In New Yorkcitynnd Urook lyn about three million pairs of old shoes aro thrown away every year. Formerly old shoes were plentiful 111 the neighbor hood; now it appears that they aro sought after as choice prizes in tho ragpiqker's line. I5y dint of persvering inquiry it was discovered that tho old shoes wore used for threo purposes. First, all shoes not completely worn out are patched, greased, and after being otherwise re generated, sold to men who deal in such wares. Somo porsous wear 0110 shoo much moro than tho other; these dealers find mates for shoes whose original mates are past hope. Secondly, tho shoes not worth patching up arc cut into pieces' tlio good bits aro used for patching oth er shoes, nnd tho worthless bits, tho soles and cracked uppers, aro converted into .Inmaica rum by a process known only to the manufacturers. It is said that they aro boiled in pure spirits and allowed to stand for a fow wecks,the product far surpassing the Jamaica rum mado with essonces, burnt sugar and spirits. A gentleman who doubted the truth of this story stopped recently at a low grogshop in the neighborhood of tho factory spok en of and inquired if they had any rum from old shoes. "No," said the barkeep er, "we don't keep it much now; tho druggists, who want a pure article, all sell it, nud the price has gono up. Hut wo iiinemiu u, ununu ixiu 141:1, mi so:n if you want it. How many old shoes HO to a gallon of rum could not be as certamed T. l .11 ." .Tl 1 - .. . . " nan oeeu uoiiceti oy some iicputtes that while manufacturers aro quite will- ing to put a valuation upon their manu factured product, they hesitate about stating the value of the raw material,and even return the schedules with the spaca lor tho value ot raw material left blank. In one instance a manufacturer of toma to catsup retuine J a report giving tho value ot his manufactured product at $18,000 and the vahio of his raw mater ial as nothing. His explanation was as follows : Every year in tin canning sea 8011 he sends to thu wholesale houses which make a business ot canning to- matocs clean tubs, with the understan ing tll!lt tllc women who trim and peel shall throw the skins and parings into these tubs: every day the tubs are re- moved, the stuff 111 them ground up, fer mentcd, llavorecl and sold as tomato cat sup to the extent of bl8,000. Another singular and decidedly pernicious busi ness is the manufacture on a largo scalo of cheap candies from white earth or ter ra alba, mixed with a little sugar and glucose. Tho deputy who investigated the confectionary business reports that twenty-live per centum ot somo candies is composed of these substances.tind such candy, notably gum drops, contain Mill less sugar. Iho euectot white enrth up on the stomachs of tho unfortunate chil dren who buy these candies is yet to bo determined by future autopsies. "What is called a hue brand ot caslilo soap has been found to bo composed chiefly of this white earth and grease, but the evil effects of such tin imposture nre trilling compared to the results of turning chil- dren s stomachs into miniature pottery works. Among the new industries which have sprung into existence during the last few years is the system of finishing in this city foreign goods imported in an 11 ti finished condition. Foreign articles composed of several paitsare now large ly finished in that city, the parts calling for hand labor being imported while those calling for machine work are mado here. In this way heavy duties aro saved although the nrticlesarc sold as imported goods, Au Immense Engine.
