WITH Promptness AND Despatch SATISFACTION GUARANTEED. Bergstrom Music Co,, Ltd PROGRESS BLOCK HONOLULU. KEOKUK, Iowa, July 20. Explora tion of the Hooded district of the Mis sissippi river from Keokuk south shows conditions beyond the appreciation or realization of any but persons of long experience with the Father of Waters in Its most destructive moods. The situation Is growing worse hourly. There Is absolutely not tho slightest chance of stopping the Hood which Is a dozen times the most costly of any in the history of the great river above St. Louis. A newspaper correspondent went over the worst damaged area today on the steamer Silver Crescent and found p cry where the greatest crops ever known In this region under water deep enough to Moat n steamboat. Resi dents of the river cities give a mass ot details, all tobe generalized In losses aggregating many millions 'of dollats. Hundreds of farmers, llch ten days ago are penniless and homeless, and hun dreds are watching and praying tifut the great levees which are now their bulward against additional loss and, In many caBes absolute penury, will hold. Careful estimates place the loss up to today at about $6,000,000, with every piospect that It wljl be increased by two or three millions by the rise above, which has not yet reached tho lower st i etches of the river. Most of this loss is on the Missouri side of the river between Keokuk and Hannibal. Passing the water-lapped Jumber yards of Keokuk, the mouth of the Des Moines river Is seen to be nearly two miles wide. Normally there ate two mouth and an Island delta Covered with farms, which are now under raging torrents. Alexandria was protected to the last by the Egyptian levee, the breaking of which would have sent four feet of water over the town. Gregory Is sub merged except the White Church, In which services were held today. The congregation from the country reached the house of worship the railroad track, which was still above the Hood, in a waste of waters miles wide. Other towns and cities on the islands are be yond the danger line. Immense fields are seen In a great lake with the shore line visible only with a glass, where the high bluffs bound the bottoms. Islands dotting the river at Us normal stage have disap peared except for the tops of trees or fringes of high shore willows protrud ing slightly, like a circular green coral reef. Occasionally a house on piles Is seen, but generally only roofs protude to mark the center of -farms of corn. On the edge of the Hood corn gradually rises on a slope, tassels, tops, ears and stalks appealing In order. In a few half-submerged fields Is shocked wheat In the background, the remnants of many crops. In the middle of the present river the tracks of the St. Louis, Keokuk and Northwestern shore, are now a few In ches above the water and under It in some stretches. Shore lights for pilots are standing In the mldHt of a waste o waters where steamboats can run over them. The river Is five to ten miles wide and seventy miles long, and an other great lake is added to the geogra phy. All this territory was practically covered with corn a fortnight ago, es timated to yield 75 to 100 bushels to the acre. 1 amusement and enjoyment.

A Rush of Income Tax Statements at tho End About S00 Were Filed Yesterday. The otllce of the Tax Assessor will he open from 7 to 9 o'clock this evening, to receive Income Tax returns. Today Is the last day for the filing of such statements according to law, and there Is the same rush of tardy tnx- i payers as last year. Yesterday about SOO statements were turned In nnd sworn tb over the coun ter of the tax ofilcc. A crowd of peo ple with statements and with ques tions to ask kept clerks busy all day. People of Honolulu have had one year's experience with the act and know more about making returns than they did last year, but there are still many er rors In the returns and It will prob ably take some weeks to straighten them all out. One question very often raised Is as to Income that comes from the Main land, many people thinking that they need not include such Incomes. The ' act, however, Includes all money re I clved from nny vocation that Is carried I on here, without reference to where the money come from. In the matter of deductions there are many ques tions. Under the head of "expense" and "losses" a number of items which will have to be stricken out are placed In the returns. This morning a crowd was on hand early, and statements came In fast all , day. Owing to the rush ,nnd In order to give all a chance to get their state ments In, It was decided to keep the , oillce open this evening, from seven to I nine.
