The Town of Gridley, Kan., Caugh in a Storm. Every House In the Town Injured by the Hurricane Merchants and Ilasiness Men SalTer, bat No Fatalities lAat of Losses. Gridley, Kan., Sept. 10. This little town of 400 inhabitants down in Coffey county, one of the termini of the liurlington branch of the oanta r e, is tp-day a shattered wreck, with not a single uninjured house in its confines most of the buildings, and all of the stocks of goods of every description are utterly ruined. And what is most remarkable is the fact that not a human being" was more than slightly injured. About 3 o'clock Sunday a storm of wind and rain burst on the town from the northwest. The wind was what is known as a "straight blow," and its mischief was mainly confined to the unroofing' of buildings. A down pour of rain immediately fol lowed of a volume that can best be appreciated by the state ment that 5 inches of water fell. This deluge completed the de struction that had not been accom plished by the wind. In a few minutes every stock of goods in town had been soaked, and the household possessions of most of the inhabitants were in the same condition. Strange to say, with all of the falling roofs and walls, and flying debris that broke windows far and near, not a person of the town re ported more than the merest personal injury. So far as reported the losses are: Methodist church, blown down; Chris tian church, new, completelv wrecked: Pope's hardware : store, building and stock destroyed; Fessenden & Son, gen eral store, building damaged, stock ruined; Stockton, drugs, building un roofed, stock wet; Grove, general sre, building unroofed, stock de stroyed; Giles, grocer, building un roofed, stock completely destroyed; Kichardson Brothers, livery, barn destroyed, some animals injured; JJlaker's lumber yard, stock scattered and shattered; Bell, hay shipper, barn destroyed and and large quantity of hay wet. Adjoining the livery barn were a number of frame buildings oc cupied as residences, the fronts of which were blown out and the con tents flooded. Oleson, hardware, stock utterly ruined, building torn to pieces. In the second story was located the Odd Fellows' hall; Smith hotel, un roofed, contents mined by water: ad joining livery stable destroyed; Find ley hotel, roof damaged and contents wet; Powers, meat market, building destroyed. In Key west townsliip, near Gridley, one boy was killed, and at Strawn Mrs. Jayne and daughter were slightly injured. . r DEATH IN A WASHOUT.

Grata Elevators iiuay. Omaha, Neb., Sept. 10. The grain elevators which have been idle for a year, owing to the drought, have just opened and are already receiving1 large consignmentsof grain. Tha movemjnt of wheat and oats has fairly begun and the quality of both cereals is excep tionally good. Both Omaha and Coun cil Bluffs elevators are shipping the new crop south. Much of the wheat goes to Kansas, where the crop is short. The yield in northern Ne braska and Sooth Dakota is very large, And much of it will be milled in Ne braska and chipped to southern mar Iteta. " GOVERNMENT CROP REPORT. Condition In September as Shown by tha AgrricnUaral Department. Washington, Sept. 11. The Septem ber report of the statistician of the de partment of agriculture shows a de cline in the condition of corn to 96.4 from 102.5 in the month of August, being a falling-off of 6.1 points. The prospects of the corn crop have suf fered from drought during1 the month of August in the surplus producing1 states of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, and in a portion of Nebraska. Reports from Indiana, Iowa and Ohio indicate that though there have been rains dur ing the latter part of the month, they have been generally too late to be of any great benefit. " The averages in the principal states are: Kentucky, 106; Ohio, 83; Michi gan, 85; Indiana, 86; Illinois, 97; Iowa, 96; Missouri, 111; Kansas, 86. The general condition of wheat, con sidering both winter and spring varie ties, where harvested, was 75.4, against 83.7 last year and 74 in 1893. The reported conditions for the prin cipal wheat states are as follows: Ohio, 64; Michigan, 70; Indiana, 53; Illinois, 59; Wisconsin, 85; Minnesota, 17; Iowa, 107; Missouri, 75; Kansas, 40; Nebraska, 74; North Dakota, 105; South Dakota, 74; Oregon, 93; Washington, 79; California, 75. Conditions of oats when harvested was 86; rye, 83.7; bar ley, 87.6; buckwheat, 87.5; potatoes, 90.8. MORE ATROCITIES. Several Towns in Armenia Iaid Waste by Turks and Kurds. London, Sept. 11 . A dispatch to the Daily News from Kars, Armenia, says that the entire district of Kenacks is surrounded by Turkish troops dis- patched by Zekki Pasha under the plea of arresting" Armenian revolutionists. It is said that the villages of Carni, Tiruguegner, Tortan, Horoput and Marig were completely sacked and the population, aggregating 5,000 people, foully dealt with, the men tortured and the women and children brutally maltreated. The four monasteries of Auakwauk, Sourphop, Thervorithchoga and Soupphagop -were uacked and the altars and images destroyed. The excitement and alarm are uni versal. Authentic information from Moosh is that an anti-Christian society of Turkish officials has been formed there and at Bitlis with the avowed intenlJIon of slaughtering the Chris tians in the event of the acceptance of the porte of the scheme of reforms presented by the powers. It is declared that Consul Hampson is to be the first victim. DESTROYED BY STORM. Three Hundred Houses Were Blown Down by the Kansas Hurricane. Burlington, Kan., Sept. 11. The news that comes from the western part of Coffey county in regard to the destruction of property by the storm on Sunday night and Monday morning continues to be very bad. Not less than 303 residences, barns, school houses and other buildings in the line of the storm were blown down, and many fine orchards ruined. J. II. Hallaway had over 2,000 bushels of apples knocked off the trees by hail, and they are all ruined. Jack rabbits and chickens were killed by being beaten with hail. The amount of grain ruined along the Neosho river is hard to estimate. The river at this point is bank full, and there has been no trains in or out. JOHN N. REYNOLDS DEAD. The Notorious Kansan Passes Away in an Asylum His Record. Atchison, Kan., Sept. 11. John N. Keynolds, the notorious ex-evangelist and convict, died in the Osawatomie asylum this morning, wlither he was taken about a year ago. Reynolds first gained notoriety about nine years ago, when he came here and started a live stock insurance company, which did up hundreds of farmers. Previous ly he had been an evangelist, but had been sent to the Iowa peni tentiary for criminally assaulting a member of a church where he was holding a revival. He was sent to the Kansas penitentiary for his live stock swindle, and during his confine ment ran for state senator, and re ceived over 500 votes. Reynolds wrote a book entitled "Twin Hells." WILL RING FOR FREEDOM. The Columbian Liberty Bell to Travel Around the World, tioinff First to At lanta. 0 Chicago, Sept. 11.

DEEP WATER-WAYS. Wealth to the Western . Farmer la sured by Its Completion. For .many years the work of creating deep channels between Lakes Superior, Huron, . Michigan and Erie has been going on. At length the work is done, or under contract to complete, so that from all the lakes twenty-foot channels may practically be said to exist. With the completion of the inter-lake channels, all the immense and rapidly increasing1 navigation converges to the common eastern terminus at Buffalo. The existence of the great lakes has made possible the so-called northwest, since it has permitted the products of the northwest to reach markets at a much lower figure than has been possible by all raiL From Duluth to Buffalo, eleven hundred miles, it costs about one-third as much as it costs to transship and transport across New York state. Increasing competi tion from those Countries of the world possessing cheap land and cheap labor makes it imperative on the producers, the farm ers of the northwest, to search out, if possible, some way of getting- their crops to the eastern markets at a lower rate than they have been getting-. To every producer in the northwest it will be of interest to know that on Septem ber 24-26 there will be a convention held in the city of Cleveland for the purpose of developing in a large way the facts relating to this deep water navigation from Buffalo eastward. With a view to decreasing the cost, it is necessary to use the" existing lakes and river, with supplementary canals, and to reduce the cost from Buffalo east in some such ratio as has been se cured in the upper lakes. An eminent engineer, C. N. Dutton, who has given the matter a great deal of study, has prepared the following statements and figures, which I beg to present, with out comment, simply asking that they be read and thought on: "Sixteen great states, namely, Ohio, Indi ana," Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Wisconsin. Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota. Nebraska, Kansas, Montana, Wyoming and Colorado, must ship their sur plus agricultural products from the great lakes to the seaboard. Deep-water navigation would effect an immediate reduction in freight costs, and consequent increase in crop values of an average of five cents a bushel on grain and potatoes, four dollars a ton on hay and five dollars and upwards a ton on straw. "In the sixteen states most benefited, the direct money gain, computed on the crop re ports of 1895, will be as follows: TEABLT GAIN. An. Gain at 6c chop. Yield, bu. Value, per bu. per bu.

The increased value of the productions of these lands will be $465,803,000 annually, an increased annual earning of $2.33; per acre. If the market value of land depends upon its earning power, and the ratio of in crease of value be taken at four times the In crease in yearly earnings, then the improved farm lands of these sixteen states will In crease in value $9.33) per acre, or $1,863,000,000 as the Immediate result of the opening of the Maritime canal of North America. "Vast as this sum appears, it Is a partial statement of the- g ain to the west resulting from deep draft navigation to the 'seaboard, becauso it is based on the short crops of 1894, and does not take account of truck, fruits, small grains, dairy products, poultry, eggs, horses and mules, and wood, timber, bark, 3tc ; neither does it take account of mine products and manufactures, or the increase In values in city and manufacturing property." This movement has received, the in dorsement of most of the United States senators from the west. Last winter the legislature of Minne sota memorialized congress in support of this measure. Senator McCleary, of Mankato, is gathering data from Can ada and the United States with a view to urging it in the northwest and in congress. The east has no transportation ques tion. Her manufactured goods, worth perhaps thousands of dollars a ton, are not perceptibly affected by a slight dif er?nce in freight The farming dis tricts of the west are vitally affected when all profit in their crops is eaten up by the carrying charges. As a na tional question it should be borne in mind that the manufacturing east re ceives her raw products largely from the west; also her cheap food supplies. In turn she finds her best market in the farming states of the west It should also be remembered that the enormous cash balance annually required abroad to settle the foreign exchange must be provided in the main by the western and southwestern farms or by gold The pressure is urgent The naviga tion cannot be provided soon enough if commenced now. The convention at Cleveland will be marked by the pres ence of many specialists with specially prepared papers covering a wide range of public matters. As chairman of the executive committee, I respectfully re quest correspondence with commercial bodies, public officials and the papers, if in any way it may lead to fuller in formation and a quickened interest In particular, I desire assurances of sup "port which can be shown at the proper time as evidence of popular sentiment.

ORNAMENTAL TRUNK OOVER. A. Neat and Serviceable Article for Home - Use. .-' So many women of the present day ither board or live in flats that de vices .for making trunks presentable objects are not without their value. Even the woman who has a whole house to herself and abundance of room will be pleased to hide the travel worn exterior of her trunk either at home or in her room at country house or seashore cottage. A material de sirable for a cover is gray or buff linen, strong and serviceable. Seven pieces cut to fit the sides, ends and top, are sewed together firmly on the sewing machine and then bound with brown braid. Before the pieces are put together the decoration is put on. It may be simple or elaborate, accord ing to fancy, but as the cover will be taken off in traveling there is no fear of injury to handsome needlework. For the cover outline stitch and ring work are all used. Long leaves from center to corners are painted a dull peacock blue, with outline and vein ing iu outline stitch in dark olive. A crackle all-over pattern for background is done with fine lines of brown paint. Circles set in the center and between each leaf are made of brass rings worked over with simple crochet in brown silk. In the end pieces open ings should be cut and bound to let the handles through. The cover should be held down by little straps and buttons. A simple cover may be made of the same material, with a decoration of brown braid- put on in a set pattern. This can be done by the aid of the braiding attachment that belongs to almost all kinds of sewing machines. Very serviceable trunk covers may also be made of the dark cretonnes which come in such great varieties and - in shades to harmonize with any and every carpet and wall paper. For the top of the trunk before the cover is put on, a thin mattress of hair or wool should be provided. In almost every bedroom an extra place to hold cloth ing is welcome, and the modern trunk is particularly well adapted for the purpose. Ladies' Home Journal. CAUSED BY VACCINATION. From the Journal, Detroit, Mich. Every one in the vicinity of Meldrum avenue and Champlain street, Detroit, knows Mrs. McDonald, and many a neigh bor has reason to feel grateful to her for the kind and friendly interest she has mani fested in cases f Illness. She is a kind-hearted friend, a natural nurse, and an intelligent and refined lady. To a reporter she recently talked at some length about Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, giv ing some very interesting instances in her own immediate knowledge of marvelous cures, and the universal beneficence of the remedy to those who had used it. "I have reason to know," said Mrs. Mc Donald, "something of the worth of this medicine, for it has been demonstrated in my own immediate family: My daughter Kit tie is attending high school, and has never been very strong since she began. I sup pose she studied hard, and she has -quite a distance to go every day. When' the small pox broke out all of the school children had to be vaccinated. I took her over to Dr. Jameson and he vaccinated her. I never saw such an arm in my life and the doctor said he never did. She was broken out on her shoulders and back and was just as sick as she could be. To add to it all neuralgia set in, and the poor child was in misery. She is naturally of a nervous temperament and she suffered most awfully. Even after she recovered the neuralgia did not leave her. Stormy days or days that were damp or preceded a storm, she could not go out at all. She Was pale and thin, and had no ap petite. "I have forgotten just who told me aoout the Pink Pills, but I got some for her and they cured her right up. She has a nice color in her face, eats and sleeps well, goes to school every day, and is well and strong in every particular. I have never heard of anything to build up the blood to compare ' with Pink Pills. I shall always keep them in the house and recommend them to my neighbors." Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People are considered an unfailing specific in such diseases as locomotor ataxia, partial paraly sis, St. Vitus' dance, sciatica, neuralgia, rheumatism, nervous headache, the after effects of la grippe, palpitation of the heart, pale and sallow complexions, that tired feel ing resulting from nervous prostration; all diseases resulting from vitiated humors in the blood, such as scrofula, chronic erysip elas, etc. They are also a specific for troubles peculiar to females, such as sup pressions, irregularities, and all forms of weakness. In men they effect a radical cure in all cases arising from mental worry, overwork, or excesses of whatever nature. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are sold by all dealers, or will be sent post paid on receipt of price (50 cents a box or six boxes for $2.50 they are Dever sold in bulk or by iuu; by addressing Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Schenectady, N.

Latest U. S. Gov't Report ..... N vWOMEN'S TEETH. Even a Commonplace Face Redeemed by Perfect Rows of Pearls. "Take one tooth away from ? fair Helen's mouth," says an old author, "and there had never been a Biege of Trov and the divine Iliad had never been written." It is impossible to con ceive of beautv in a woman without a set of . regular, white, well-shaped teeth, and it is true that with every other feature of the classic mold with beautiful eyes, well-formed lips, a skin of roses and lilies, a magnificent head of brown or golden tresses, the shoul ders and bust of a Hebe and the limbs of a Diana a woman stands or falls by the beauty or defects of her teeth. You may admire all her other features, you may dwell on her grace of contour and revel in the delicate lines of a goddess-like form," let the pretty mouth open to disclose discolored, misshapen and, above all, decayed teeth, and all your admiration is forgotten. Ihe mental exclamation is always the same what hideous teeth! The other side of this picture is a much more agreeable- one, and we must agree that a beautiful set of even, white teeth is of infinite charm. Many and many an otherwise common place face has been redeemed by a mouth full of brilliant white teeth. Monin, the distinguished hygienist, says: "lhere is nothing in the.world so entrancing as a woman's smile when it displays two even rows of pearls. Perfect teeth are compact, regular, smooth and of pearly whiteness. 'The front teeth of the perfect set are mod erately small. The fortunates who are possessed of such teeth are usually very good tempered." Detroit Free Press. Doing: Its Regular 'Work.

"No, sir," promptly replied the physi cian. Your liver is in perfect condi tion, runs full time and never takes a holiday. It is the only part of you that isn't out of order. It isn't your liver that needs doctoring. It's the rest of you, sir. You secrete more bile than yon can consume. That's all that ails you. Good day, sir." Chicago Trib une.
