A terrible and widespread prairie fire is
raging in several counties ,. f Nebraska. A
high wind has been blowing for the laat 24
hours, and the great fire has been traveling
with remarkable rapidity. The hay on ev

swept off. Many settlers have lost their
barns, sheds and outhouses and one man
his dwelling. All the hay on the Logau
bottoms, which had been cut for cattle, in
cluding the cedar ranch farm containing
o.liUU acres, has been destroyed. There are
many large herds of cattle in that region,
and as the hay has been destroyed, the loss
will be very severe on stock men.

Reports are coming in from various parts
of Arizona Territory, that the old pioneers
of that territory, tempted by the reward of
$250 for Indian scalps, made by several
counties in Arizona, have started out on a
hunt for red skins, with the view of obtain
ing their Bcalps. They think this is the
most practicable method yet suggested for
forever ending the Apache Indian war. The
$250 is merely incidental to the hunt; it
pays for the whisky and tobacco used in
camp. It is believed that several New
Mexican cities and counties will adopt this
plan of exterminating the savages. The
fight at Gallarp's ranch yesterday has thor
oughly aroused Western Mexico. Addi
tional troops are now being held in readi
ness at El Paso. The Indians are roaming
about in small bands; and this enables
them to commit crime and eecapeorhide
easier than when they rove all together

The victims are all foreigners employed for

master Wells worked on this class of peo

are about 4.000 mechanics employed here,
the most of whom are young men, who
send money to their parents monthly.
Nearly all of them have suffered. When
the defalcations are fully exposed they .will
reach over $5,000. The affair has aroused
the indignation of everybody, and the
promptjjremoval of Wells is demanded. In

the department at Washington has the
matter under advisement.
A recent dispatch from Chatanooga,
Tenn., says: There is intense excitement at
Dalton, Georgia, over a visit paid that
place by a band of Ku Klux last week.
There was fifty men, all well disguised,
who entered the city shortly after mid
night. They visited a house of ill fame
owned by Mrs. Jane Kidd, and the woman
j and six of her boarders were dragged from
their beds, and each one was given nity
lashes. Some of the women are in a criti
cal condition and may die. The band that
went to the house of Tom Carver, a noted
thief, and beat him to death, after tortur
ing him for a half hour. Another negro,
named Armstad, was so terribly beaten
that he will die. The band then notified
several person's to leave the place at onoe
or they would be killed. No clue can be
had'as to the identity of them. The mob
took in all the disreputable houses, regard
less of the color of the occupants. They
went to the mayor's office and left a list ot
those under mob surveillance. The whole
affair was an effort to rid Dalton of the bad
characters that infest the town.
Some weeks ago Clarence Clark, formerly
a wealthy druggist of Williamsport, Pa.,
committed .suicide, and a short time after
his wife took opium and died. Mrs. Clark
was a member of one of the most respecta
ble families in the state, and formerly lived
in Wilkesbarre. Soon after their marriage
Clark took to drinking heavily, and lost
all his money. The wife was so depressed
over their losses she became a confirmed
opium eater. The friends of the couple de
serted them and at last they took what re
mained of their fortune and came to Bella
font e where for years they were known as
hopeless drunkards. They lived in an old
shanty until their money was gone. The
husband, driven to despair, blew his brains
out, and his wife buried him by selling a
diamond ring which she had kept through
all her wanderings. After her husband's
death she drank worse than ever, and was
finally found dead in bed with a small vial
of opium in her hand. By her side was a
note which read: "I have wssted my life
and do net wish to live longer."

.In order to protect life and property at
the Flood Rock explosion recently, the
most careful and adequate police arrange

hundred and fifty policemen in addltion'to
the harbor police were detailed near the
scene of action, three hundred of whom
were located on the river front.
All points on the shore from whichthe
rock could be seen were densely packed with
people. The police were busy in keeping
the crowd outside of the danger line.
Ropes had been stretched across the river

Hushed expectancy fell upon the vast

however, scores, of excursion steamers,
their decks black with people, yachts, tugs,
