Xo white man ever saw the P.lue river so high as it was during the recent floods. 190: has broken all records, even the tra ditional hieh marks of the Indians have been surpassed. In the early DO's a band of Pottowatomie Indians cainned aioncr the trail near the cabin of Blue Rapids first settler. Judtre William Thompson, arid they said that white man had never Seen big water" that they had seen the water from bluff to bluff. Their story has always been re garded as a "heap hip lie," unta its verification in the recent flood, when it was literally running full from bluff to bluff, all down the picturesque Blue Valley. The floods have subsided, leaving wreck and ruin behind, but it is wi courasinjr to learn tliaf where there was no current the crops have suffered very little. North Blue Rapids, a neck of land in the Horse Shoe bend of the P.lue river has received the greatest damage of any place in the Blue valley. It is utmost a complete wreck, with "a bis chance of still more disaster by rea son of the new- channel which has "form ed across the north end of the land, finis forming- an island of the "flats." The n"w river be,'-an where the pr. i railroad ditch had been dusr. about six hundred feet below the mills and wa ter lower. It has widened to within less than fifty feet of the Anderson flour mill, and still rearer to the Prie foun dry. X early all business has stopped in town and nearly every man has joined the band who are workinsr to save the mills. A temporary dam is helns built to check the flow- of water down the new channel. The water that li s in the old river bed is as quiet and placid as that of a pool. The flour mill is built on bed rock and w ill prob ably stand. Kvery thinsr of value has been taken from it, and if the cutting continues the elevateir will be torn down. The relentless, persistent and diaboli cal character (if water lias been fully demonstrated to us in this snort but stroticr stream. House after house, many of them containing their owners: all outbuildings, and errand old trees are yieldincr; to its insistent demand for tribute, until the best of them are all prone. P.rideres on all sides of us are gone, except the one at the mills which was held by larsre waterpipe on the side which was firnily embedded in the rocky nrroun.d r,i each end. Every train brintrs the peopV. who come to view tli remains of North P.lue Rnpids and streams of carriages and buercriers ero back and forth all day. and every day. Our only thouerht. is to save the mills and save our water power. Men of all conditions work side by side day avrd ni'jht. Men who have never handled a shovel or axe in th"ir lives are work in a; like trojans to save the life of the town. DIED FROEvJ WOUNDS. Another Victim of the Belgrade Slaughter Has Expired. Belgrade, June Pb At midniprht last niffht tranquillity prevailed here. The streets have practically been deserted since 0 p. m. with the exception of small military patrols which paraded the thoroughfares. The paiace wa.s guarded by a cordon of infantry and all the ministerial residences in the vi cinity of the palace were closely sruarded by detachment of troops. A p. ..ru ral feeliner of cheerfulness per vades tile city and aeeordiner to re ports the country around the city con tinues to be flansed. Former Minister Tudorovies has suc cumbed to his wounds. Minister of Cmvmv rc" C.ensehics, in .art interview, s.-.id h considered that if thoro was any r-pabliriiii freCncy in the cabinet it was insure,! nt. The elec tion of a ruler he thought could not occur befor" Tuesday, but it was al most cr-rtain Prince later Karagcot'ite viteh would be ddM Prince Mirko of M011ter.ee vo had no chance whatever. M. (lens, hies was reticent as to the event at the palate early on Thursday nioriiinu;. He did not consider it expe dient to publish an official account of .what had transpired until matters had settled down. The minister added that since his accession the late King- Alex ander commuted constant errors and lost his hold on the public by his mar riage with Queen I.irapa and the comedy played ill connection with the prepara tions for the birth of an alleged heir. The omp d'etat was fixed for June 11. as on that day Queen Inaera wished to proclaim her brother Nikodem heir to tin- throne. " . M. C.ensehics concluded with endorsing Pi ince Peter as an hoimrable man and an earnest well wisher of stervia. Cavalry and infantry continue to pa trol the 'streets during the day. The people remain culm. The chief int rest centers in the ap pioaehini session of the skupshtina. Tlie election of Prince Peter Kara ee,,rc;eviteh as kins of Srvia is regard ed as certain, although Prince Mirko of Moutenesro nmv have some votes. Here and there a republican tendency is no ticeable. Noti'-es have been placarded on the walls of Belgrade enjoining the people to observe the laws and reminding them that meetings of any kind on the day pre. erline ihe assembling of the Fkupsh tina or during its session are strictly prohibiteel. MinaJed with the general satisfaction felt at the success of the coup d'etat there is some sense of depression and anxiety at the possibility of foreign in tervention. The war minister has issued a decree dismissing several military commanders and appointing successors to their posts. MI'.T PUNISH ASSASSINS. London, June 111. A special dispatch from Rome says a semi-official note published there declares that whoever is made king of Servia. the powers will exact the punishment 'if the murderer of King Alexander and Queen Praga. as civilize 1 countries cannot tolerate that administrative and military positions in any country should be occupied by as sassins. SPI.TAN TS WORPIPP. Constantinople. June 13. The terrible tragedy at Belgrade caused stupefaction at the Yildiz palace. The sultan was so affected that he was unable to listen to th" details published in the newspapers and allowed those who conversed with him to speak of the "death of the king ancl oueen of Servia" and would not permit them to mention the word assas sination. It Is announced h"re that King Charles of Roumani 1. who was honornry co'onel of the Sixth regiment of Servian infantry, w hich perpetrated the massa cres nt 1. 'grade, has savored his con nection w ith the regiment, wiroh he on sirlers has given such horrible proof of lark of military honor. The Modern Wooimsn Row. 7rr.pnria. Knn., June i:'.

Student Days of High School Senior Class End. Fifty-nine Graduates Receive Blue Ribboned Diplomas. GIRLS IX MAJORITY. Outnumber the Roys More Thau Two to One. Words of AdTice Given by Chan cellor Frank Strong. An hour of suppressed excitement, running; here and there, excited voices; then a swish of skirts and the tread of marching feet in time to a piano, as the clsss marched to the platform; the huah for the prayer; music; an address full of good, sound logic; the distributing of diplomas and the exercises which brought to an end the school days of the senior class of the high school were over. There was little difference between the graduating exercises of the class last night and those of any other class ex cepting that the hall was not decorated. In fact the exercises were abandoned because of the flood. They were to have been held at the Auditorium June 4, but at that time some of the class were flood sufferers and water bound refugees and they were not thinking; as much of diplomas as they were of life pre servers. Superintendent Davidson issued a no tice that the graduating exercises were abandoned. That was all right until the refugees from the north were safe and the sweet girl graduates from the itooded district had rescued their white dresses, washed and irqned them. Then they were ready for exercises. The Auditorium was being used to house refugees but that made no difference. The high school assembly hall was used and it was crowded. There were no decorations. There was not room for any. The graduating class presented the school with a large plaster statue of Minerva, to stand as a monument to the memory of the class. It was mount ed on a pedestal and stood at one end of the ukitform. The class inarched past it. and for whiteness the dress of every girl graduate put the plaster tint of .Minerva to shame. The class num bered ;u, and of that number 42 were gills. Among the 59 were only li young men in somber black. They looked like so many b'ack morning glory seeds on a field of white linen. Rut such is always the case. The girls always outnumber the boys. The girls carried roses and toyed with them when they didn't know just what to da with their hands. The boys, poor fel lows, didn't carry roses or anything else, and their pockets were ;irt awfully tempting retreat for their hands. Thn few beys who graduate always have a hard time of it. Mr. Janus Moore gave the class this first word of advice in the title of hH song, "Man Proposes." The girls of tin; class all knew that, however, before they even entered the high school. Dr. J. T. McFarl nd offered prayer. Mr. George w. parkhurst sang- "Da. Mort d Jeanne d'Are." Chanc -llor Frank Strong, of the state university, delivered the address. Hi." subject was "The Development of F.du cation." He walked to the front of the platform. The front of said platform, by the way, had been extended with a temporary structure. Mr. Strong standi an inch or two over six feet and h" will weigh more by almost a hundred pounds than anyone else who sat on th platform. The temporary platform creaked, it swayed, it seemed as un. steady as a raft. Mr. Strong stood firm and looked at John MacPonalel, who sat in the front row- of the audience. "I am not afraid," said Mr. Strong. "5 was told to look at Mr. Mac-Donald and that I would feel secure. Mr. Strong proceeded to give the members of the class some words of ad vice. He said: "In this clay and age people who graduate from a high sc ho.n are not necessarily educated. Few mei. in history become great without th? training the schools and universities give. Only such men as Abraham Ijn 00I11 and Henry Clay can get along without such training. The time ban come when leaders do not come from the high schools. Any boy who goes out of here thinking that a high school education will put him 011 a footing with men from the colleges is. much mistaken. Pie will find that they will put him aside and trample him under foo-" After the address Rev. F. E. Mallorv, president of the board of education, dis tributed the ciinlerrnas to the members of the class, as follows: Kdith Pearl Atwood, Florence Emma Ra:lo, Lester K. Bennett.

RETURNED TO OWNERS. Original Shareholders Will Get Rack Their Stock. Pending Suit Will Re Carried to a Conclusion. Xew- York, June 13. It is stated by the Xew York American that the Xorthern Securities company will be voluntarily dissolved -and that the stocks of the Great Xorthern and Xorthern Pa- I cilic Railroad compctnies will be dis- , tributed among the shareholders, in this manner the properties mentioned I will be returned to their former owners. That preparations are being marie for j the dissolution of the Securities com 711 .iy 13 declared by the American to nave been learned on the highest au thority, but ohicials of the company re fuse either to confirm or deny the state ment. It is said, however, that the ap peal now pending in the United States supreme court w ill be carried to its con clusion so as to establish the legal status of such companies by the court of last resort. The Northern Securities company was incorporated in 1901 with a capital of $400,000,000. Its formation was the out come of a struggle for control of the Xorthern Pacific which precipitated the stock market panic of May &, 1901. HARVEST RATES RELAYED Harvest Hand Tickets Will Be on Sale Till Jun 25. On account of the floods the railroads have found it very inconvenient to put t lie harvest hand rates into operation on the dates first intended, and have delayed the date for beginning the sale of harvest hand tickets until June 'la. A late of one-third fare one way will be made from eastern Kansas points to the wheat belt, but in order to secure it there must be five or more persons on each ticket. This is in order to conform with a new provision of the interstate commerce law. T. P.. Gerow, director of the state free employment bureau, has been taking the matter up with W. J. Black, general passenger agent of the Santa B'e, and today he is sending out a letter to his agents and to county clerks and otheis interested- in the importation of har vest hands, in which he says: "I have just been informed by Mr. J. W. Black, general passenger agent of the Santa Fe road, acting for the other roads operating in Kansas, that owing to ihe great damage caused to the rail roads by the flood which recently swept over this portion of the state, that the : harvest rate of one-third tare per 1 capita, which we expected to go into t operation on June 20, cannot be put in force until the --.-1 1.1st. lnis is as great a oisaupointment to me as I pre sume it will be to you, but the condi tions of the railroads operating in Kan sas is such at this time that it will be impossible for them to make the rate anv earlier. Tickets will be sold June 25 to July I Pi. inclusive, to parties of five from 1 Kansas City, Iea venworth, Atchison, j St. Joseph, Topeka. Ottawa, Fort Scott, Chanute. anej cneriyvaie, 10 an puiul in Kansas west of a north and south line drawn through C.edarvale, Moline, F.uieka, Emporia, Council Grove. White City, Junction City. Blue Rapids and Marysville. 1 hope by the time the rate" goes into operation that the rail roads will be able to release the large number cf men whom they now have employed, and these men will naturally pro where' they can obtain the highesi warres. "I shall advertise this rate this morn ing wherever it will do the greatest good; meanwhile I hope that the men who have been directed to you from points east of the Missouri river, notably Xew York. Pennsylvania, Chi cago, Rloomington and Peoria, 111., an! St. Louis, Mo., will reach you, and thai those who have been in the habit or engaging in the harvest in other years will come of their own accord and go to you without passing through any of my agencies. All agents of this bureau will he immediately notified of the rate and instructed to do ail in their power to forward as many men as possible from the city in which they operate."

The despondency and gloom of the early part of the weeK in Wall street gave place to a sudden re vulsion of sentiment on Thursday morning whe n the over-excited bears rushed to tiny stocks in something of a panic. The sub sequent recovery wiped out the week's earlier losses. The rebound was the re sult of the realization that prices haci got down to a level where investment demand was attracted both for home and foreign account. The large wheat crop promisi d by the government's monthly report, the favorable railroad earnings reported, the dorieion affirming the right of the coal road presidents to refuse1 certain informa tion demanded by the commerce commis sion and the decline in sterling aided the recovery.
