—According to the accounts telegraphed
from Chillioothe, Missouri, of a storm that vis

through the air. The frightful |>ower of the
wind was shown when it demolished a brick
church and tore up thousands of trees by the
roots, destroying three-fourths of the apple
crop in the regions which it visited. It is be
coming more and more evident that some gen
eral cause is at work in the production of such
storms, and that its manifestations vary iu dif
ferent years. Its activity seemed to have reach
en a maximum last year, but the record of the
tornadoes so far this year indicates that the
maximum may not even yet have been attain

are liable to occur in any part of the country-

—The incessant noise that one now hears,
coming from the woods every day, is made by
the locusts. These are said to be the "17-year
locusts"—locusts that entered the ground in the
form of grubs seventeen years ago and have
just now come out tf it. They come from the
ground in the form of a bug, about an inch
long, and of a yellowish color. These crawl
up the nearest bush or tree and fasten the.r
claws firmly into a leaf or the bark. After a
few hours the skin of the bug cracks from the
head half way down the back and the locust
begins to emerge. He comes out head first,and
expanding as he comes, is a grub about one and
a half inches long when he falls to the

bundles at each side of He again
crawls up a bush or trunk of a tree, and the
sun soon hardens his wings, changes the color
of his body from white to black and yel!ow >
and his eyes to bright red, and he is then ready
to fly to the tree tops and join in the family
chorus. Here he again changes color to a
bright green. The rent in the suit of clothes
he leaves behind him, closes and the shell re
mains hanging to the bushes for days. Many
of the locusts meet with mishaps. In un.
ravelling their wings they tear them. During
a walk through the woods last Sunday, we
noticed hundreds with deformed wings. This
locust, unlike the migratory locust of the
eastern continent and the grasshopper (locust;
of our western prairies, is said to eat nothing
during his stay above ground, and his only
object in coming to the surface is to breed. The
female locust is armed with a spear, extending
from her throat down between her legs. This
is her ovipositor, and with it she girdles small
twigs and places her eggs in the score. Uy the
time the autumn winds shake the trees, these
twigs are sufficiently weakened to break off,

A remarkable murder case has just
beeu tried at MOP it Sterling in the
State of Kentucky. Vaughn Helton
was shot dead in bed beside his wife
and child. John Barnett and seven
other men were indicted for the murder.
On his trial Barnett withdrew his plea
of not guilty and pleaded guilty. Five
of the other seven prisoners followed
Barnett's example, and with him were
sentenced to imprisonment for life.
Now three other men, who were called
as witnesses for Barnett, have been
indicted for complicity in the murder.

The notion that was lately put into
practice by a Philadelphia newspaper
of cabling to this country every Sun
day night the sermons of the London
pulpiteer, Spurgeon, has been abandon
ed. The price was too heavy for ser
mons which were too cheap. They
proved to be unprofitable to the paper
which footed the cable bills for them.
In fact, it was at once evident to those
who read them during the few weeks
of their publication here, that we have
in this country hundreds of preachers
who are in every way superior to
Spurgeon of London—who are better
reasoners and theologians, more per
suasive, more learned, more imagina
tive, and not less pious or enthusiastic
than Spurgeon. The Philadelphia
paper which cabled Spurgeon's sermons
from London rendered some service bv

France lias got her war in Mada
gascar as nicely started as her war in
Tonquin. But in Madagascar as in
Tonquin, she has not advanced much
further toward victory. Tho oflicial
report of the bombardment of Majunga,
a Beaport of Hovas, shows that after
taking possession of the town the
French forces came to a halt. The
worst is to follow there as well as in
Annam. The Hovas could not, of
course, resist the gunboats; but they
have now instituted a land blockade
around the seaport and have cut oIT
supplies. The majority of the Sakala
vas are reported to have adjusted their
quarrel with the Hovas and are now
acting with them against the invader;
so that the French thus disappointed
iu au ally, will have to increase their
army in Madagascar by troops from
home before thoy can contend success
fully against tho natives. Tho latter
have an army of Regulars numbering
20,000 men with firearms, and a horde
of 50,000 spearmen who would do cf
foctive work in the forest which lies
between the coast and tho Ilovas cap : -
tal. The drain upon the troops of tho
Republic intended for foreign service,
to reinforce the armies in Madagascar,
Tunis and Tonquin, is a serious one,
and the French are likely to bo locked
up in Majunga for a long timo before
they aro ready to move. It may bo
so long indeed that possibly they will
prefer a compromise with the Ilovas
to an attempt to conquer them.

The Legislature having allowed the
regular session to come to an end with
out passing the apportionment bills,
Governor I'attisou has summoned
it to meet in extra sessiou at noon on
Thursday last. While our State con
stitution contains no specific provision
concerning a congressional apportion
ment, it fixes the time when the same
shall bo made. This, with the appor
tionment act passed by Congress in
February. 1882, by which the Legisla
ture is governed iu this respect, makes
it necessary to redistrict tho State be
fore the next congressional election. It
would seem from this that the Governor
has power in law to summon tho Leg
islature to consider tho various appor
tionment bills which they neglected to
pass. He might have allowed the re
sponsibility to rest with the Legisla
ture and let it answer to the people for
the neglect, but he deemed it of too
great importance, and gives the Legis
lature another opportunity to perform
Now that an extra session has been
called, on all hands the people will
unite in an emphatic demand thutthcro
shall be no gerrymandering about it.
Alter the time spent in junketing and
useless adjournments, tho Legislature
should take up this work with reason
and good faith, and make an earnest,
honest effort to reach a conclusion and
make a fair and reasonable agreement.
During the regular session, in tho gen
eral current of legislation, the appor
tionment bills were partially lost si><lit
of, but now public attention will be
fixed upon them and them alone. Our
people are patient and long suffering,
but when patience ceases to be a virtue,
they are equally prompt and active.
The people demand that tho apportion
ment bills bo passed, partisan bickering
must give way to reasonable concession,
a conclusion must be reached, and the
party that stands in tho way of a
speedy settlement will brinx the indig
nation of the people upon its head and
bo covered with overwhelming defeat.
This is the proposition presented to
the members of the Legislature, and
the sooner they recognize the fact that
concession must l»e made on both sides,
the better for their future and the good
of the State.
