news c:ui tell the outcome?
A Momentum! Iuy for Many.
For cttes will he built, foundations of
towns laid, fortunes reuched and lives
blasted and sacrificed before the sun goes
down to-d.iy. Yesterday was a moment
ous oi:e to the thousands. All day the
mm shone with a summer heat, burning
the fare and parching the throats of the
thirsty people, until many gave up and
started for their homes, sijk and broken
in bo::;, am! spirit. At. Orlando the pro
visions rnii low and many people were
lit:tig:y as well as tuir-ty. Seven more
registering booths were opened and nearly
all the people were registered. ity work
ing hard it is expected the clerks can regis
ter everybody in tune Fully 15,000 people
are now at Orlando who expect to go in
upon the trains and the. railway Will be
tillable to carry them all.
A Nice Crop of Law Suits Sowin;.
The struggle to get upon the train will
be a terrible one ami many people will im
loubteitly be injured. At Arkansas Citv
it will be next to impossible to register all
the people. The same condition exists at,
Stillwater anil Henuesey, and there is no
doubt 1 ut that thousands will enter the
land without certificates, trusting to the
courts to uptiold them.

but it is feared that others will be started

for train wreckers, whom they fear will
try to prevent the trains from reaching the
townsites. The Cherokees have perfected
all arrangen ents for the opening of towns
on their allotments and are now selling
town lots at Wharton, Willow Springs,

What s. rt of a rush there will be can be
juik-ed by the following: Most of the ar
rivals nt Arkansas City yesterday and
they were tens of thousands intend to
make for the town lots, and the great ob
jective point is the government county seat
mid iaiid ollice of Terry, ten miles north of
the Oklahoma iitie. The town site covers
an area of acres, which has been cut
into mt'e lots to the acre, making a total
of -.'.ss'l lots to be divided among 2(l,W)0 or
more i eople who will crowd in there to

Clili Am), Sept. :t The Art institute is
at this time a p a -e where religious pabu
lum is dealt out iiccorditg to order, and
while you wait. Y hetheryou are interested
in Puritanism or Judaism, in liberal Chris
tianity or in Confucianism, in strict or
thodoxy or Mohammedanism, the par
ticular religious view which you seek is
there for i he seek ng. Confucianism had
its advocate in K ug Sliien Ho, of Shang
hai, who said tha in his religion the most
important tiling was to follow the will of
heaven. The boi k of Yih King taught
that in the changes cf the world there
wes a great siipre ne, meaning the spring
of all activity, wl ich produced two prin
ciples, and these two principles were Yin
The sages of C infticins regarded these
two and the five lements as aetimtand re
acting on each other without ceasing, and
like the hinges of a door this doctrine was
all-important. The choicest, products of
Yin and Yang: ai d the five elements of t he
world is man, ami the rest are refuse prod
ucts. The choicest among the choice ones
are the sages, while the refuse is the fool
ish and the bail. Inasmuch as man's body
came from the Yiu.and his soul from Yang
he could not be I erfect. That was what
the philosophers called the material na
ture. All men had nt birth a nature for good
ness, and yet if t lere was nothing to lix it
then desires arose and passions ruled, and
men were not far from being like liensts.
Confucianism searched into all things. It
extended knowledge. It taught a sincere
aim for a right h-.:art. It taught a virtu
ous life. It tnu lit good government to
the nation, and peace to all under he.iveti.
All down the cen uries its wjr-hip and re
ligion hail been wisely regulated, and
hene it had lie-n transmitted from the
oldest times unti. now.

HOW THE TRAINS WILL RUN.
I ifly t ouches OoinK in on the Sunt Fe
Fire Arms Prohibited.
The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe
railroad has arranged to run three trains
f ten couches each south of this point
and two trains of ten coaches each north
from Orlando. It is expected thut 200 peo
ple will bo crowded in and on top of each
coach, which will make a total of 10,000
jiersons to enter by this means alone. A
large posse of deputy United States mar
shals have arrived at Arkansas City to
take charge of the trains and prevent any
one from boarding the cars who has not
certificate of registration. It is not be
lieved to lie possible to enforce this
restriction which has been made by tbe
secretary of the interior.
The governor of Oklahoma has issued an
order forbidding all persons who enter the
Strip from carrying firearms. This is an
other regulation which, in the nature of
things, it will be impossible to have ob
served. Similar arrangements have beeu
made by the Chicago, Hock Island and Pa
cific Railroad company for carrying per
sons into tha Strip along that line. The
great objective point there will be Enid,
also a county seat and land office town.
Five trains of twelve coaches each, three
to go south from Caldwell and two north
from Hennessey, will start for Fnid over
this line at noon to-day.
The crowds at the booths everywhere be
gan to thin out Thursday, those having
certificates going along the line to secure
good points from which to start today's

Marshfield, Wis., Sept. 10. This place is
still on the face of the earth, although it
has had a close call for annihilation. But
the danger is not yet over and the prayer
that goes itp all over the town is for rain.
Not so fortunate are those who live out
side. Parties who have returned from the
burned district report that all along the
road the carcasses of horses, cows, oxen
and pigs can be seen. The wind of Thurs
day, which abated during the night, is
again rising. As far as heard from, be
tweeu forty and fifty families are home
less in this vicinity, but the list will be
swelled by another sun unless something
transpires to stay the flames. Word from
McMillan has been received to the effect
that nil hope of saving the village is about
given up. McMillan Bros.' plant at that
place is valued at $15U,0;Hi; injured fur $05,
009. Only Two Fatalities So Far.
Two hundred men are righting the
flames. At Merrill, Wis., reports are
pouring in from all directions telling how
the disastrous tires are leaving destruction
in their wake. In the towns of Pine
River and Scott eighteen families have
been rendered homeless. Only two deaths
have lieen reported so far. They are those
of the two children of Fred Wege, who
with their mother were trying to save
some of the household effects. They were
suffocated in the smoke. Swopes' saw-mill
in the town of Pine River, was completely
burned. It was valued at $'5,'H)0 aud was
insured for flT.oiKi.
FOUGHT FIRE ALL NIGHT.
Deadwood, s. I)., Saved liy Hard Work and
I"::.Uwoop, S. D., Sept. 1C Nearly the
entire male population put in the night
fighting the forest fire north of the city
which for hours threatened to sweep all
before it. Bankers, merchnnts, doctors,
laboring men and everybody took a hand,
and by their exertions managed to save
the city. At 11 o'clock at night the lire
had reached a point on Forest hill only a
mile distant. The track of the flames was
two miles wide and lay through a region
thick with dry brush and timber. The
wind was blowing a gale, rendering it im
possible by reason of the heat and smoke
to approach nearer than lf0 feet to the
blu.e. The llames were leaping to the tops
of pine trees and jumping a hundreed feet
high. Along the line of this wall of fire
were scattered a thousand men or more
fighting back the fast advancing flames.
All night lotiitthey battled, while rein
forcements kept pouring in from tha city
and the neighboring towns. Still the fire
advanced, helped cn by the wind, and the
Contest seemed hopeless. Just when tho
men were exhausted and all hojies almost
given up, the wind vet red and blew away
from town for about half an hour. The
precious moments were taken advantagd
of; a path l.i'oo teet wide was cm in front
of the fire; the timber carried off and wheu
the wind again changed aud blew toward
the city the Humes found nothing to feed
on. Occasionally they would leap across
the clearing, but hundreds of men ere
ready to beat them out.

BRAZILIAN REBELS MAKING WAY.
1'eixotto Abandons the ('Hitnl Garrisons
Go With the Itetult.
New Yokk. Sept. Hi. The Herald's
Buenos Ayres correspondent cables: News
which has beeu received from Rio Janeiro
indicates that the situation there is very
serious. It is believed here that the aavy
revolters have gained a foot hood in the
capital. President Peixotto, it is learned,
has abandoned the coast of the bay of Rio
and the capital, nnd retired to Santa Ana
with that portion of the army which still
remains loyal to him. Here he will await
an attack from the lauding party. The
bombardment of the city has been sus
pended. Word has also been receiued that the
revolution is spreading. It is now reported
that the states of Bahia and Pernambuco
have declared in favor of the revolution
ists. The garrisons in Fort Villegagenon
and all of the other forts in the harbor of
Rio Janeiro, except one, have revolted and
joined Admiral Mello's forces. Prepara
tions have been made in the harbor of Rio
Urande to resist au attack from a hostile
squadron. From the tone of the Brazilian
newspapers received it is predicted that
Peixotto's government will be overthrown
at an early day.
