The Kansas River ordinarily Is a very

KANSAS CITY, May 30.?Unprecedent?
ed floods are raging in central and east?
ern Kansas, northwestern Missouri, east?
ern Nebraska' and southwestern Iowa,
the result of ten days of almost continu?
ous rainfall. The general situation Is con?
sidered most grave, with no immediate
relief In sight. Many Uves have been
lost, and it Is estimated that no less than
2TI.000 persons have been driven from
their homes, many of which wore washed
away, and that the property loss will run
well up Into the millions of dollars.
The greatest damage has been occa?
sioned between Kansas City nnd Ells?

The chief suTferor is North Topuka,
which has been separated from the main
part of the city and become an island.
At Kansas City, Kansas, and In the su?

Goodman Was Too
Before "Squire Georco W. Thomas, tin
Henrlco county, yesterday a young man
of Kulten wn strled anil lined for beating
another young man, who, lie thought,
had insulted his wife.
Tho case was that of Fred Goodman, to
which reference was msd? a few days
back. The young man has been married
something over eight months. Last Tuoj
day or thereabouts his wife was walking
in the neighborhood of the house on
Graham Street, when sha saw three men
who were passing along the strraf to?
gether. They wore laughing and talking
together, and to her It appeared that
they made some alighting remnatt* con?
cerning her. Shu reported the mutter to
her husband and on the next evening
when two of the tnree fellows came oy
and again apparently made sotne alight?
ing remark about bis wife. Mr. Goodman
went out und soundly thrashed one of
them?O. H. En bank. The two friends of
Eimnnk were T. H. Hewitt and H. A.
An a result of the attack on him, Ku
bank sworo out a warrant charging
Goodman with assault, mid tho case came
up for trial yesterday. The plaintiff
stated positively that hu had muda nu.
slighting remark about Mrs. GorJ*7nnn,
and that he was laughing and talking
with his friends, absolutely without any
reference to the young woman. If Mr.
Goodman bad given him time ho said he
would hove explained and removed all
ground for offenes by disclaiming any
Intention to Insult his wife. Dut tho de?
fendant rushed at him, ho said, and
knocked blm down befara ho could utter
