From Storms and Signs.
Our picdicllon last month, "that No
vember would be a remarkable month,
that accidents would b'j numerous,
plots planned, etc.," were fulfilled to
December ill be ruled by the "high
Hood" vital forces, labor will lie plen
tiful, although there will be many dis
satisfactions. Business will gradually
boom and the Christmas trade should
be unprecedented. We should still
keep our eyes, on Mais the led war
rior, as, he is directly opposite of Ju
piter, our financial indicator, and
E irth Is about mid-way between them
both, therefore keep prepared for any
financial dllllculiics that may present
itself. The evil and blighting inllu
enee that ho showered down upon us
last month, will continue during this
month; accidents, murd'MS, plots and
crimes will occur throughout the
world, which will astonish the people.
Grpnt conflagrations will occur. Eng
land may receive a sore affliction.
Earth will pass out of the "House
of Children" into tho "House of Sick
ness," in opposition with tho great
planets on the east side of the Sun,
excepting Mars and Neptune, which
will cause disease epidemics to bring
us more trouble, causing sorrow in
many homes. All those born under
the planet Mars should nvoid the cold,
chilly winds of December, during the
Low Ebb days.
The weather will be rather change
able, there will be many beautiful
days, but winter Is liable to give us a
surprise. Regular storm conditions
will prevail nt the opening of Decem
ber. The probabilities are that rough
wintry weather will prevail over many
sections of the country nt this time,
also nt and after full Moon on the
llth. Destructive gales, blizzards, etc.,
both on land and sea, may be expect
ed. Continued, unsettled weather will
develop during the last quarter of the
