It U estimated that In this county alese

to say nothing of the less va
otfc buildings, Uvo stock and faftn
property. At Axandersvule, six miles
south of here, several peC?J9 are known to
be injured and one lady reported JHAl,
while a saw mill, bams and other buildings
are destroyed. At Carrolltoa Friend's
paper thill smi other 'buildings are badly
damaged, while a number of residences are
reported destroyed. Telegraph lines are
down In all directions and the toads aw in
pasable from the ruins that fill them. Neaf

One child was caught in the cyclone ana
carried two hundred yards and dropped to
earth slightly injured. Mr. Mltchcls' house
and barn was partly ruined. Mr. Ridenour's
property was badly damaged. Abner Har
ris' barn and other buildings were destroyed.
The names ot the other losers cannot
be ascertained, but considering the large
number of houses destroyed, thae must be
a heavy loss in the -vicinity of Maimbburg.
There's a heavy damage in this city. There
was heavy rain and hail, but little wind. One
ot the freaks ot the cyclone is that in
Dajrtra and a few miles south of it there
was rain and halL, while south of it there
was rain and nn nail, still further hall ami
no ram, and in the sections ot country de
vastated neither rain nor hafl. At Bell
Brook, Green County, at learf C"-'- ann
houses are more or less duruged, b-: the
families, generally, esca;d by taking
refuge in cellars. From Carrollton the
cyclone took a direct easterly course, aad its
force was not in the least spent when it
reached Jamestown, a thriving village of
six hundred Inhabitants which b reported
with only a few buildings standing; Xeage
telegraph reports state that four people ara
known to liave been killed while twenty are
more or lens injured. Among others the
residence of L. Ulcxersnam was lifted from
its foundation and carried quite a distance.
Owing to the scarce settlement of the coun
ties and the blockaded roads accurate
derails cannot be obtalaed, but with such
a loss ot property that of life must be
terrible. Near NeLia there was consider
able destruction. The Soldiers' and Sailors'
Orphans' Home was badly damaged; the
bam, laundry and other buildings were de
stroyed, while the hospital and otlicrs were
unroofed. Miss Harvey, matron, and Night
Watchman Richardson were injured, but no
children hurt. Between Jasper and Cedar
Creek, on the narrow gauge road, the dam
age b great to farm property, and at this
point trains were unable to move on
account of the wind, while others didn't
dare to pa over the Cedar trestle, dur
ing the cjctotie. J tl all directions south and
east trf here the scene of destruction defies
description. Wliole forests were cut down
like weeds. Trees and small bnildiugs were
can led long distances in the air.
Gaknett, Ka, April 23. The whole
city was thrown Into a fever of excitement
at half-past five o'clock Saturday evening,
by the appearance of a cyclone, which
teemed to traverse the west part of this
county, and was plainly vKibie from the city
tor a tx-THxl of nearly half an hour. It was
so Plain that our photographers took good
views of it from tills city. It had the appear
ance of a large rope, black In color and as
large as a Iiorseslioe, extending all the way
from the earth to the cJotuK It was aImot
perpendicular near the earth, but leaned
northward at the top until it reached the
clouds, when it stretched almost horizon
tally through them for a great distance.
Vbur correspondent visited 'the scene and
found that it was a dry cyclone no water
falling wiUt it It formed near West
phalia, seventeen miles west of Gamett
and passed northeast a distance of eight or
nine miles. Three miles north of West
phalia it cauzht David Metheney driving
home on a load of lumber. It carried, him
a considerable distance in the air and
dropped him. Although no bones were
broken, he sustained Mich severe internal
Injuries that it may prove fatal. His wason
and lumber were scattered all over the
township and his horses carried sixty
feet and the harness stripped from
tlicm. Its coarse was over an open
stiftch of prairie, else it would
have done great damage. It broke lust
north of Captain Kcppert's farm, through
which it pascd. It left a zigzag track about
twenty feet wide, and moved wonderfullv
slow. At Reppert's farm It circled around
between his house and bam, destroying his
garden and barnyard fences. It was not
remarkable for the damage caused but for
the, excitement it creatcil. and an the people
in Anderson ami Coffey County must have
teen it plainly for fnlly half an hour.
5rr West. Fla, April 2S- The
fcbooner Wlnfield, twelve tons, was taken
from her moorings at Key Largo, Thursday
night, between eight and nine o'clock.
Largo is about one hundred miles distant
up die reef and about thirty miles
frtu where the frigate Yantic Is
lying. It is thought another small
party may have gone across to Cuba,
altliough it is supposed the leader of the
neat expedition is still here. It Is rumored
that some men are missing. That another
expedition lias started or will start is un
questioned. It is generally believed that
only funds arc wanting and that the present
.Vdcral fore, would avail nothing if the
blhusters were ready.
No Compromise Made.
Chicago, April 26. The conference be
tween the representatives of Burlington
and the officials of the roads in the Western
Trunk Line Association was concluded at
rwo o'clock yesterday afternoon. No defi
nite or final settlement of the differences
was made, nor can there be until the basis
for competing for the Colorado and
Nebraska business between the Kurlington
and Union Pacific has been agreed urea.
If a satisfactory understanding tctween the
two roads can be reached a to this ques
tion, it was conceded at tie conference that
the adjustment of thi other matters la coo
qroversy will be possible.

For the first time, a dynamite bomb was
successfully tfcrown frora an ordinary
sannon. The plae selected for the trial
of this new projectile a trial which, 11
claimed, marks a red-ietter day la the his
tory of modern warfare waa a long, lew
swamp back of Greenville, N. J. A little
jroup ot men bung about aa onHiiry

Morris Canal. Another group ol asea
stood on a bridge across the canal aAest
block from the cannon, looking at tae
first crowd through field-glasses. Mr.
F. II. Snyder, the inventor of tie
projectile, exhibited tae eaaaes,
in ordinary fcror-incb, twelve- poaa
der, from Governor's Ialaad. It WSsU
loaded with one and oae-talt pouada ot
powder. Next, a wad made of roaad
disks ot leather, with apbal spriag
separating tbexa, held the powder ia
place. Then the projectile Itself waa
put In place. It looks Brack like -a
very large cartridge stoat a foot long.
ind four Inches In diameter, live
peaads of dynamite were stored la tae
upper end cf the projectile am! the
lower end slldca Into a case contain
ing a rubber cushion fall of holes.
The dynamite represented tbe ballet of
an ordinary cartridge, and the casbioa
was In the place occupied by the powder.
This rubber cushion was the secret of
the invention. Through It the dyna

but this cushion counteracts the effect of
the shock, and tie bomb is fired wltioat
feeling the suddea blow aa tin powder
behind it explodea. Tie cannoa was
loaded, and a long wire attached to it
leading to the bridge. The men who be
fore had occupied places on tie
bridge moved to a hill several block
further away. A bald-headed man, with
a blue coat hid behind a boat with his
fingers In his ears'. There was only room
for one there, and his companion, with,
his silk hat grasped firmly la his band,
went scudding swiftly np the tow path

gled, ankle deep. In a cistern marsh.
'Are you aU ready?" sang out the maa
at the wire. Everyone on tia bridge tried
w get behind bis neighbor aa the word
.vas given. A puff of smoke, a loud re
port, and the rubber buffer and the wad
were seen to drop a hundred yards away.
A second later a shower ot earth flew up
nearly a mile distant. Where the shot
struck the earti was soft and, as ex
pected, the dynamite did not explode. A
party ot men seat to dls ap the missile,
after digging down six feet, gave up for
the evening. Next a projectile for naval
warfare was shot across the water. TaU
was of wood, brass capped, four feet
long, tbaped like a cigar, and at the lower
end bad four wings ot steal, placed pre
cisely as the feathers of an arrow.
The theory was that the shot
would strike the water, ricochet,
and, skipping over the wares',
to the most powerful vesseL A yoang
-nan brought the missile on his shoalder
and placed it gingerly by the side of the
cannon. Mr. Snyder unscrewed the
pointed end and put In more dynamite.'
Again the word was gives, and the bomb
went skipping over ths bay toward New
ark. The wooden part broke, however,
so the rotary motion expected to be given
was not shown. It had been intended to
recover the projectiles that had been fired
and explode them afterward, but aa one
was too deep In the marsh and the other
in tbe water, the dynamite la tbe dinner
pall was touched off Instead. Explaining
his invention Mr. Snyder said, "Ihavu
been working on this for two years. A
twenty-pound projectile, sufficient to an
nlhilats the most powerful vessel, can be
made for $20 less than the cot of an or
dinary shell. The invention of this rub
ber seems a simple, evcry-day thins, bnt
that Is its beauty." The experiments
were made br the Dynamite Projectile
Company, of No. 20C Broadway. Ths
Government will try the shells at Sandy
Hook in a few days.

PzoniA. lix-, April 2C
When Harvey UoIman,an old citizen and
bmnVerol ChlUIcothe,in this County, died
suddenly here last Sunday, on his return
from Denver, it was rumored that while
lu that city he had fallen a victim to the
binlo stealers. The amount of which he
had been defrauded was placed at several
hundred dollars. Yesterday It was ascer
tained that the sum was really $16,000. Mr.
Holman bad drawn checks forthesam,
and, as he supposed, saw them de
stroyed. This pretended destructloi
wa. simply to keep Mr. Holman from
complaining to tbe police. The checks
were sent oti to Chllllcothe, and the face
paid by Mr. Holtnan's bank. Mr. Hoi
man became aware at this when be
reached here, and it ts probable th
distress and anxiety ot mind he expert-
enced hastened his death. Mr. Uolmae
was one of the oldest and most highly re
spected citizens of this county.
