Observations on the part of a large !
number of scientists prove that
earthtpiakes are more frequent at
the time of full moon and change of j
the moon than at other times, and
also more frequent when the moon
is nearest the earth, or when she is
on the meridian. The cause to
which this fact has been assigned is
the action of those forces hich pro
duce the tides of the ocean; their
similar influence upon the solid land
strata leads to their disturbance in
the shape of earthquakes.

The Fruit Prospects.
Some say that the fruit crop is
badly injured and others that it is
not. We mean hereabouts; we fear
that the peaches in the interior are
all "gone up." A letter from Chat
ham, a great fruit county, received
a few days since, says that the peach
trees there were in blo6m when the
last big cold wave came and - that
they look now as though a fire had
s ept through them. Inj conversa
tion here yesterday with two vet1
eran fruit growers in this county,
we were glad to learn that -the; crop
hereabouts does hot-appear tojiave
been seriously injured. . . ' '

Presumptive Weather Chart.
We are indebted to Mr. Chaffee,
Signal Officer at this port, for a chart
showing the character of the weath
er conditions here for April. ! It is
a presumptive chart, of course, but
it has been carefully compiled from
the records of the month ever since
the year 1871. A comparison shows
that nearly the same weather oc
curs on or about the same day each
year. The highest temperature ever
recorded here in April was 90 de
grees in 1880, and the lowest for the
month was 28 degrees, in 1875. jThere
was one clear day; in every! three
and one cloudy day in twp. Rain
occurs one day in three, and the
daily average has. been .11 of an
inch. The average wind blows at
the rate of nine miles an hour and
the prevailing direction is from the
Easter Eggs. j; . .
rabbit will soon be
abroad in the land.
garding the various methods of col
oring Easter eggs will be seasonable
and for those interested we would
say: " ' : '
To dye eggs black put logwood
chips' into the water in which they
are to be boiled. These chips may
be bought" at a druggist's for a trifle.
It is easy to tell when the water is
black enough by taking up a little
in a spoon. Eggs can be dyed with
these chips from a lovely port wine
color to jet black. To obtain brown
eggs put strong coffee grounds or
settlings into the water while cold
and boil the eggs among them.
Cochineal, a perfectly harmless
dye, will make the eggs of any shade
from a deep crimson, to a lovely rose
pink4 according to the quantity
used. A pretty effect is sometimes
given to theeggs by -daubing them
here and there with grease before
putting them in I boiling water.
yherever the grease is the dye will
not take, therefore ? the eggs come
out spotted. Sometimes the name
of the person who is to receive the
egg is writtep on with the grease in
the same manner. fV; 1 ;
In d veinir ess ereat care should
be taken to use only one spoon and
an ok! one. The otot Haacepan .n
the house, too, will ans er the pur--
pose. All dyes are diftcult to re-
move from thesa thic-s. t
