With regard to it the flQvc- Ahnnt. half nast five Or BIX o'clock in the evening, a large stream of water ran down tnrougn tne low pwuuu of the city, flooding cellars, filling wells, floating off sidewalks, and making the roads nearly impassable. Various con ectures were made, some saying that a waterspout must have burst northwest of the city, others claiming that Mud creek had overflowed its banks. As near as we could ascertain fromalimited trip through the flooded district, the seemmclv wonderful flow can" be attribu ted to the natural drainage of water from the high country, which has been increasing for some days past, on account of the heavy rains recently taken place. The ground has been so thoroughly soaked that it could hold no more, there fore it had to take some natural outlet, the only one being the low lying lands in this vicinity. GRAND ARMS PICKUPS.

But few fields in Saline county promise a good crop of wheat. A rather poor crop of wheat is report ed in Washington county. The hay crop of Smith county prom ises to be very abundant. ." THe wheat in Washington county will average from eight to twenty bushels. The web worm is reported to hare made its appearance in Dickinson county. The oat yield in Kingman county will run from twenty-five to sixty bushels to the acre. WaKeeney TForta. One farmer in Cherokee county got 25 bushels per acre from his wheat. - " A very fair wheat yieia is reported in Lincoln county. Rye is also Agoing to make a good crop there. S A very destructive hail storm visited Riley county, doing considerable damage to corn in some sections. A man in Lincoln county planted part of his corn with a planter and part with a lister, and he savs ne would not ex change the lister for all stnbble plows for his own use. "Rnrlincrton Patriot: From all the T6- ports we can gather, although the wheat crop of Jottey county wuiiau jar snort of a crop, there will be more man was first anticipated by considerable. The past week has been the most fa vorable of the season here for the crops. The rains .were followed by several cloudy, damp days, and even the with ered, and sunburned early millet has picked up courage, and now promises to make perhaps a half crop. Wa Keenty World. Ellsworth News: We are in the midst of our wheat harvest, which is later than usual in this country, as the season has been cooi, which prevented small grains from ripening. It is the opinion that the wheat in the county wiH be more profitable to the farmer tban the large crop produced last year. Florence Tribune: We are pleased to state that the forebodings of the Marion and McPherson county farmers about the failure of their wheat crops this year are not being fully realized. The yield, though considerably less than last season, is as a rule of a superior quality. Medicine Lodge Cresset: A few years ago it was thought no crops could be raised in .Barber county outsiae oi tne valleys, yet as we look around us we can see large fields of most beautiful corn, as thrifty as ever grew in the alluvial bot toms of Illinois, or the corn lands by the Sciota or Miama rivers. Kingman Leader: A prominent farmer of this county sowed ten acres of timothy and clover with oats this spring, and now, in addition to a fair crop of the latter, he has a splendid stand of both the tame graBees. The average condition of wheat in the county is from 15 to 40 bushels to the acre and lots of it. Corn extraordinary. The value of poultry and eggs sold during last year was $6,955 in Davis county. The value of the wool marketed the past year was $6,955. In the same county the dairy products for the year ending March 1,"1885, amounted to $164, 304. The value of corn on hand in the county March 1, 1885, was $156,305; and that of the wheat was $44,314. Iola Couranl: Whatever the effect of the wet spring has been on corn plant ing, it has not altogether been withQut its benefits. It has made splendidcrops, of hay and oats, and the pastures could not have been better. Our farmers have made lots of butter, and their cattle are about fat enough for the butcher. It is an ill wind that blows nobody good. Eureka Messenger: Crop reports are considerably more encouraging this week than last. The depredations of the festive web worm have about ceased, and a great deal of the corn which has been cut off is now growing again all right. With favorable conditions for the remainder of the season, the corn crop of Greenwood county will be almost up to the average. Lincoln Banner: The harvest of Turkey wheat is very good this year, much bet ter than that of the May, and we predict a larger acreage for it next year. At present it looks as though the farmers would make their gold on corn. This will give them a chance to sit by the fire and read during the cold winter instead ot being on the road with wheat and the thermometer below zero. Garden City Sentinel; Corn crops, while not -large in Finney county, are looking fine, and give abundant promise of good returns this fall. Wni. Martin, whose ranch is twelve miles northeast of Gar den City, tells us tha 1 his corn is now waist high, and that he never had a bet ter stand, and this is outside of irriga tion. We believe that the corn crop of southwestern Kansas this fall will go far toward settling the very question as to whether corn can be grown in this cli mate or not And we feel sure that the verdict vvill be in favor of good vcorn crops. Junction City Republican: Sooner or later our people must come to the raising of tame grasses for pastures and mead ows. The day is past for depending on native grasses. The land cannot be mown free, as it "was ten years ago. It is fenced into pastures or the sod has been turned for cultivation. Experiments show that clover, timothy, blue grass and the English orchard grass grows rapidly and produce abundantly. More attention should be given them. If the present rate for prairie hay, $4 00 to $7.00 per ton continues, the hay crop will be found more valuable than the now almost uni versal "corn and hogs." Council Grove Republican: Joseph M. Rogers, of Ohio township, called on Tuesday, bringing a branch of a tree loaded with a rare fruit, namely twenty seven cocoons of beautiful native silk. Irs. Rogers obtained one-half ounce of eggs this spring, cared for them by the aid of her two little boys, fed the worms when hatched upon the leaves of the common Osage orange. The mice de stroyed a part of the brood, but she reared a sufficient number of worms to produce a bushel and three pecks of handsome cocoons. She is much pleas ed with the results of her first experi ment, and proposes to follow up the bus iness with a view to profit in the future. The eggs were said to be of the Japanese silk worm, the bright yellow color of co coons indicates the Chinese species. Health and Education. The sisters of the Academy of the Visitation, Frederick, Md., are amongst those in charge of educational institu tions who use Red Star Cough 'Cure and give it to their pupils. They write that they can heartily recommend it to their friends. Emporia News: Henry Jacobs, who lives on Jacobs creek, says that since the waters of the flood of a few days ago have receded, the damage to crops is found to be even greater than was antici pated. From the source to the mouth of the creek whole fields of corn have been washed away, and the loss from high water is perhaps greater than on any other stream in the county. The corner stone of the new Methodist church of Hiawatha, was laid a few days ago. stock squibs, i : . a Points of News Afcont Kansas,S14lc. There were 10,887 pounds of wool clip ped in Davis county last year. Wichita Beacon: . A man sold a hog in this city, a few days ago, which weighed 800 pounds. Arkansas City Demoarat: Beef cattle, hog3 and sheep were never so cheap be fore, but we notice the price of meat does not seem to take any tumble in our market Why is it? Peabody Graphic: It is said by bull breeders, that there are not twenty short horn bulls for sale, now, in the whole state of Kansas, so closely have they been brought up. Augusta Gazette: Wilber and Brown, who have about 6,000 head of sheep on a range on Cole creek, in this county lost 1,000 head of them last week, by reason of a sudden and very rapid rise in that stream. Topeka Commonwealth: Fred Dauber, one of the northern Shawnee county's most successful farmers, takes the cake in raising heavy hogs. He has on hand now thirty that will average 300, and ten that will pull the scales down at 500 apiece. For sometime past some parts of the vicinity of Fort Scott, Bourbon county have been rather promiscously indulg ing in the practice of killing other peoples cows and skinning them. The matter is now being investigated by the city officers. Wellington Press; Mr. Henry Blond, living six miles southwest of Wellington, has the heaviest colt in Sumner county for its age. It is ten weeks old and weighs 386 pounds. Sired by F. M. Jop lin's thoroughbred Norman of Elizabeth town, Kentucky. Peabody Graphic: On account of the low prices of thoroughbred cat tlej this spring, breeders have decid ed not to hold any more sales this year. Good blooded cattle are good property to hold while prices im prove which will not be long. Minneapolis Messenger: Messrs. Pierce and Burnham, of Pipe Creek, this county, shipped sixty-four head of high grade two and three year old steers to A. J. Gillespie, of Kansas City, on Monday last. They averaged 1,450 pounds and were one the finest lots of cattle sent out this year. Columbus Courier: John B. Davis, living on the territory line south of Co lumbus, reports some diEease among the cattle in the territory near the line. He has about eight head sick at the present time. The Messrs. Naylors also have a number sick, likewise the live stock company, grazing in that part of the territory. Onaga Journal: During the storm a few days ago eight fat steers were killed by lightning for Al en Meskimen. The cattle were in a pasture and close to a wire fence. It is supposed the lightning was running along on the wire and came in contact with the cattle. The cattle were in various positions,some under the fence, others between the wires, and some on either side of the fence. Caldwell Journal: Mell C. Campbell's herd of Southern Texas cattle was stop ped by the deputy marshal on the Cana dian, south of Supply, some ten days ago, under orders from the district attorney of Kansas. Mell kept the wires hot two or three days last week to Washington, laying the matter before the Secretary of the Interior. On Friday orders were issued from headquarters to allow the cattle to proceed on their way unmolest ed. The action was by cattlemen inter ested in the Neutral Strip and lease holds in the southwest corner of the Cherokee Strip we presume the Doni van Cattle Company men, as the new trail passes through that company's range, and that alone on the strip. The law has been invoked to aid the "Neu tral Strippers" and failed them, and now they will have to take their chances with the through cattle men as to which will come out best. The herd above men tioned is destined for Dallas county, Texas, but had to follow the Dallas con vention trail across the Panhandle. The situation at Dodge City between southwestern ranchmen and the Texas drovers is becoming more complicated. Through Texas stock is rapidly accumu lating at a point south ot Fort Supply and the Canadian river. Over 100,000 head of cattle have there been stopped by Deputy Marshal Bell, who has made several arrests of persons in charge of said cattle, while others are holding back awaiting the termination of the arrests so made. Complaint has been made by one John Landers before United States Commissioner Cook against five differ- anf nnvanna Txr f txt rirfcm iraro airaafarf John Blacker and Oscar Woodley, and brought to Dodge Cityfor trial. The par ties are charged with violating section 6, of the animal industry law, approved May 29th. 1884. Deputy United States Attorney Hatton, of Wichita, is here to represent the government, while Hon. J. G. Waters represents the dependents. Since the arrest of these persons, who represent 18,000 head of cattle, it has at tracted the attention of thirty or more prominent ranchmen and drovers from all over the country, who are anxiously watching the proceedings in this case. All are anxious to have the matter fully determined legally and learn what their rights are in the premises. Should the matter be determined against the ranch men it will turn loose 150,000 head of cattle that will take up their line of march over the trail as laid out by the cattlemen's convention and move along to the south, line of "No Man's Land" to the southeast corner of the state of Colo rado, where admission to and through said state has been arranged for, for all kinds of cattle that have the proper certificate of inspection from Colorado officials. Dodge City is full of cattle men, arraved on both sides of the question and it is exciting the deepest interest here, next to the Indian scare, ine Texas cattle men declare the drives from Texas this year ' is unusually healthy, and the comincr herds in the very best condition. Telegramshave been received there from the secretary or tne interior that the drive from Texas has the right to proceed unmolested through the In dian country overtne common trail, ana Hon. B. F. Simpson, the United States marshal has sent several telegrams here that not a denutv of his has the right to detain anv cattle whatever and can only arrest persons for whom they have legal process.

A LESSON FROMTHK WOODS. How Woodcock Protected Her Young- From a Canine. Forest and Stream. Unable to resist the subtle influence of the balmy south wind of yesterday .redo lent with cherry blossoms and forerun ner of many such days to come, I was strolling along one of the less frequented roads in the immediate vicinity of the village. My four-footed companion a satin-skinned pointer, associate of many a happy day, with ruling passion strong, explored every copse and thicket, re gardless he of a scratched body and a bleeding tail, could he but gain one whiff of that intoxicating odor, far dear er to him than all the "Sabean odors from the spicy shore of Arabie the blest." After and absence somewhat more pro tracted than usual, a casual search in the direction I had last seen him reveled him pointing as I expected. The ch arac ter ot the ground, a rough hillock cover ed with tangled cat briers and white birches, and contiguous to a deep alder swamp, left little doubt as to the nature of the game, while the glaring eyes, the quivering nostrils, and the rigid stern left equally little doubt as tp the frw feet or perhaps inches that separated the educated auimal from his natural prey. While admiring the beautiful picture and hesitating to interfere, a verv large hen bird flopped heayily up, clearing 1 the brier with difficulty, only to drop with a sounding thud a yard or two in advance. Almost at the same second the smaller but more vigorous cock bird with the familiar ringing whistle sprang twenty feet into the air and away over the tops oi the budding birches, across the brook, skirting a wide meadow, nor pausing nor faltering, until with a sud den dart and a turn he wheeled sharply into a copse of alders and swamp maples, quite a different species of bird appar ently from his fluttering mate. The lat ter, naturally a shy and retiring bird,ap- pearea to nave lost all tear oi man or beast in her anxiety for her little family's welfare, each one of whom had doubtless sought shelter at once under some protecting dead leaf at the very first indication of danger. So thorough ly, indeed, were the little younsters stowed away that, although the rude nest containing the four broken shells were in plain sight, no trace of them did a rather careful search reveal. And now began a series of amusing antics on the part of that devoted parent that must be seen to be appreciated. Around and around the stanch dog she ambled and waddled, feathers distorted, and quacking for all the world like a dusky duck in the gloaming of the ' autumn evening as he fearlessly prepared to alight on his favorite feeding ground. After several minutes thus consumed in completing the circles, of whicn the sorely-tempted canine was the interest ing center, finding all her wiles fail to move him other than an agonizing twist of his head upon its axis, she suddenly changed tactics, and, with ruffled plu mage and open bill, bodily charged the intruder, until but a few inches at mpst separated her from the jaws which there is some reason to believe may be her fu ture tomb. Patience was evidently ceas ing to be a virtue on the poor brute's part, and fearing dire results to that lit tle family of innocents in case of a sud den half orphanage, I asserted my share in the tragedy by stepping slightly in advance. As the delighted mother led me step by step away from danger, it was with a peculiar satisfaction I almost fancied I could see in her big expressive eyes the relief it furbished her. Over the hill, back to the road, and a hundred yards down the same she gently drew us, and when with an utterly exhausted flap she appeared to alight lor the last time, I was not less supprised than pleased to catch a glimpse of her, com pletely restored as if by a miracle, whirl ing over the dense cedars and tall tim ber on a hill-top until she reappeared by a long circuit close to the original spot where I first surprised her. Retracing my steps, there she was sure enough, going through the same old game as before. Calling off the disgust ed dog with much difficulty, I left her there and continued my walk he full of regrets, doubtless, at what he regarded as an exceeding unsaiisiactory termina tion to so much trouble, and his master, with "murder most foul and most un natural" in his heart to marvel at the mysterious working of man's heart, which, while moved to play and pity and admiration at a mother's love, can at the selfsame moment resolve on the subsequent complete annihiliation of not only that mother, brft "all her pretty chickens, too, at one fell swoop." Verily, how all-coneuming must be that passion for the chase, which warps our sympa thies, and which knows no right but the law of might. As to Mrs. GruBdy. This potent personage has been al. lowed to rule too despotically in the feminine world, and the ladies say that it is time her tyranny received a check. But not even Mrs. Grundy has dared to speak agaiast the value of Brown's Iron Bitters as a strengthing tcnic for ladies who suffer from debility. It enriches the blood and completely restores failing health. Miss Sallie L. Panics, Wrights ville, Pa., was cured by Brown's Iron Bitters of back-ache, kidney trouble and liver complaint. , .

It is one of the most remarkable prop erties of that wonderful product, paper, that it.can be split into two or even three parts, however tbin the sheet. We have seen a leaf of the Illustrated News thus divided in three parts, or three thin leaves. One consisted of the surface on which the engravings are printed;anoti er was the side containing the letter press, and . perfectly blank piece on each aide was the r aper that lay between. any people who have not seen this - done might think it impossible; yet it is not only possible, but extremely easy as we shall show. Get a piece of plate glass and place on it a sheet of paper; then let the latter be thoroughly soaked. With care and a little dexterity the sheet can be split by the top surface being re moved. But the best plan is to paste a piece of cloth or strong paper to each side of the sheet to be split. When dry, violently and without hesitation pull the two pieces asunder, when part of the sheet will be found to have adhered to one and part to the other. Soften the paste in water, and the pieces can easily be removed from the cloth. The pro cess is generally demonstrated as a mat ter of curiosity, yet it can be utilized in various ways. If we want to paste in a scrap book a newspaper article printed on both sides of the paper, and possess only one copy, it is very convenient to know how to detach the one side from the other. The paper when split, as may be imagined, is more transparent than ft was before being subjected to the opera tion, and the printing ink somewhat duller; otherwise the two pieces present the appearance of the original if again brought together. Some time ago the information of how to do this eplitting was advertised to be sold for a consider able sum. We now impart it to all our readers gratuitously. The Boston and Lowell Fifty Tears Ago. On the morning of May 27, 1835, says the Lowell (Mass.) Courier, just fifty years ago, the first engine and passenger car made a trip from Lowell to Boston and return on the Boston and Lowell Railroad. The passengers from Lowell were Patrick T. Jackson, James F. Bald win and George W. Whistler. The party was augmented in Boston, and the trip to Lowell was made in one hour and seven teen minutes. A. dinner was served in the Merrimac hotel in honor of the oc casion. The locomotive was an English one; was named the Stephenson, and was run by an Englishman named Robinson. The road was not opened for regular bu siness until Jane 23. The first engine built for the road in the machine shop was called the Patrick, in honor.of Mr. Jackson. Manhattan Republican: A prominent farmer of northern. Riley, in talking about corn raising said that last year he cultivated some of his corn the fourth time and after it was "laid by" it was plain enough, by the larger ears in the part of the field most cultivated, that the extra work paid.
