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
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

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

GOVERNMENT CROP REPORT.
Condition In September as Shown by tha
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,

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

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."

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:

"The sixteen states above referred to have a
total area in improved farm lands of 199,328,876
acres. 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
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

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.

Every one in the vicinity of Meldrum

She is a kind-hearted friend, a natural

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

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
