The Rev. James Madden, who is

city of Johnstown, who left a warning
six hours old go unheeded, waited,

Geary county, Kansas, "contributes
a car load of corn to be sold for the
benefit of the Pennsylvania suflers.and
the Kansas City Gazette in speaking
of the act, says: "The car was consign
ed to W. S. Seayers, president of the
board of trade, Chicago, Illinois, with
a twenty-five foot streamer on each
side, labeled as follows: 'This car of
corn is contributed by the citterns of
junction City, Geary county, Kansa?,
to be sold for the Deneflt of the Johns
town sufferers.' We say appropriate,
because the Conemaugh valley, from
its head at Summitville,Cambria coun
ty, or the South Fork reservoir, down
to Pittsburg, was John W. Geary's na
tive sod. He was born in the valley,
it waa in Cambria coauty, in whfeh
Johnstown is located, that he raised
his American Highlanders for tha
Mexican war, and he was farming in
the valley when he was made governor
of Kansas, enlisted for the war of the
Rebellion, and when mad overnoc
of Pennsylvania. It was very appro
priate that Geary eoanty corn should
be sent tQ the region that contributed
a, Oeary to the glory of tho country .'
The perspicacity of the Kansas City
Times which traces the Topeka mur-

only equalled by that of the Chicago
Herald, which holds the protective
tariff responsible for the Johnstown,
