Aformec Parisian celebrity has re

This was the once famous Mnic. dc

Countess Von Hcnckel Donnesmark.
Despite her colossal wealth and her

agreed to the motion of the Marquis of
Salisbury to appoint a commission on

Wales, in addressing the House on the
subject, said he had been impressed, as

of the poor. He was gratified that a

felt flattered at being appointed a mem

Judge Jons Couitee in a conversa
tion with a Denver Aeiei reporter rives
this as pjtrt of his experience with the
recent blizzard: "It was about ten
miles to Dixon, where we knew we
could secure shelter, foid aud warmth,
and we pulled out at early day break.
But it took nerve to face the winds that
I tvnisticu aoour. utc mountain, ami we
feared and were prepared for the worst.
J Frequently one of the party would an
nounce after ridinga ihort distance that
he felt comfortable, but we all knew the
cause of it. and would hustle him out of
the sleigh and pound him. and make
him walk until he warmed binuclf thor
oughly." Is October last there was Ngun a
movement amon the fanners of Mani
toba and the Canadian Northwest which
was intended to secure for them retires
of certain grievances under which they
were being crushed. The first of these
grievances was the monopoly given the
Canadian Pacific Railway in that they
were granted tho exclusive right to
build railroads through the country.
Another mj-usticc complained of was the
cicci-ive duties imposed ou all roods
going into the country. In view of these
facts Manitoba sent a delegation to
Ottawa to attempt redress of grievances,
but x. deaf car was turned to their
appeal, and in consequence the people
of Manitoba arc indignant and ocnly
threaten secession. A convention has
been called to consider the situation.
A Wasiuxgtox correspondent states
that there are in round numbers about
forty-six thousand claims for tobacco re
bate, of which only the merest fraction
have been rejected. A few were thrown
ont because they were not made in time,
and some claims were made on broken
packages, while the law limits rebates
to whole packages. A very few were
thrown ont for fraud or other reasons.
Frcm the entire country only a
hundred or two of claims were
rejected. Tho last of these claims were
passed from the Internal Revenue office
to the Fifth Auditor's office last Novem
ber. The Fifth Auditor has now passed
about seven-eights of the whole lot to
the First Comptroller, and hero they
are stalled. Comptroller Lawrence told
the correspondent that bs bad only
four clerks in the division to which
these claims go, and they have so much
work ahead of them that unless the
Comptroller has additional clerks as
signed him it will take two years before
his office will ever begin the examina
tion of these tobacco-rebate claims. An
appropriation for additional clerk hire
will be asked ,

estimate or the number of Cres lost
or the damage dons can yet be formed,
bat it b known beyond all doubt that
this is the greatest disaster that has
ever happened In America. Tbe killed
and wounded belong almost exclusively te
the poorer classes, and there will be suffer
ing and destitution among those who es
caped. Tbo number ot deaths so far re
ported aggregates 204 Gt these 113 are In
Georgia, 43 in Korth Carolina, 103 la South
Carolina, and M in Alabama. Many sec
tions have not been heard from, anil the
death list will probably rracb 400.

But in the meantime a densely dark aad

rising along the northern homos and
mounting swiftly In the heavens. Coafl

sons took warning from the gatherisng
clouds and the preparations for carryis

without interruption. By 2:13 the e4r

thunder growled in the distance and the
atmosphere became oppressive and sultry.
Tbe great orchestra, under the direciiea

storm burst upon the vast assemblage1.
Roraing dr.wn irom the north, its adra&ea
guard ot dust, fragments of paper aad

broke up as If scattered by an explosion.
Tbe confusion was intense. mosses
screamed and men shouted, and all insttact

ot them was hopeless, for the rain cams
down In an avalanche to be realized only
in these southern latitudes, and in fire

drenched to tbe skin. The wind blew a
violent gale, and carried away erery Sea;,

The programme embraced a poem by H.
