existence. The other was found some
vears ago near Oxford. England, but is
much smaller than this one. It is now
the ISritish museum. The whale-

the king of the land and sea," doubt
less from the fact that it was equally at
home on land or in the water. In water
its speed was terrific: it swam with its
legs, its enormous wings serving to
keep iLs body above the surface, so that
it must have appeared to tx- waiKingon
the water. An idea of its great si.e
can be formed from the fart that one
bone weighed 794 pounds. The weight
of the whole skeleton is 2,400 pounds.

First national bank of this city Satur
day night and securing a money hanl
which, though ' it' cannot be fixed t
definitely, owing to the reticence of th
officials of the bank, is various r esti
mated at from 1 1,000 to $15,000 by
those who are in a position to know.
The burglars were scared away be
fore they had completed their work,
and did not get Into the leserre vanls
in which was (10,000, principally in
gold. They had dynamite and a fuse
attached to this, bnt for some reason '
fled without touching it off.
The first intimation of the robbery
came at 10:30 o'clock yesterday morn
ing, when County Treasurer Buey, who
has an office in the building adjoining
the bank, went to his office. When he
entered his room he saw the wall waa
caving in, and on investigation ha
found that there had been a terrible -
explosion in the bank, which bad al
most wrecked both buildings. He at
once gave the alarm, and npon search
being made it was learned that
burglars had been at work suc
cessfully in the bank. They had
entered the bank by means of
skeleton keys which had opened the
back door and another leading to the
room in which was the vanlt. They then
drilled holes through the outer door of
the vanlL and with a charge of powder
blew ht the time-lock which bad been
set to open on Monday morning. In
side this was a steel door to tbe burglar-proof
compart men L The only
money known to be outside of this
door was 300 deposited late Saturday
afternoon by the Liberty Building and
The burglars used dynamite to effect
an entrance through this second door.
They mnst have nsed a terrific charge,
for the heavy steel door was so com
pletely blown to pieces that not even a
good-sized piece has been found.
This gave the burglars access to all
the money which the bank had in cir
culation on Saturday, and the deposits
of merchants on that day being un
usually heavy. (12,000 is considered a
low estimate of what they got.
On the floor of the bank waa left sev
eral sticks of dynamite and a number
of tools, showing that the men went off
in a hnrry. It was learned that four
suspicions looking characters had been
seen in town on Saturday afternoon
and evening. Two were old men and
two were apparently about twenty.
One of them bought a large quantity
of putty just before dark and this was
nsed with the dynamite to deaden the
Leaving the bank the burglars went
to the house of Mr. James Steal and
stole a carriage anil a team of horses,
with which they made their escape.
The sheriff and a poss; trace! them as
far as the Milwaukee railroad bridge
over the Missouri river at Kansas City,
where the horses were found in an al
most dying condition, having been
driven furiously. Here all trace of the
men was lost It is stated that they
got across the river by means of a boat
which confederates had in waiting.

of the grain traffic and although this
road has more twenty-cent points on
its line than the Union Pacific has
twenty-five rents, yet for the three
months of August, September and Octo
ber the Burlington A Missouri received
2A1 car-loads of grain against 1.K31 by
the Union Pacific, not including car
brads by the Union Pacific to Colorado

grain into Denver during that period
with the exception of a car or two of
wheat, although the lint runs through
a rich country. This indicates the ex
tent to which the frauds have gone.
