Kan I Pol moat of to-day the President's traitt waa the only one running between ! Omaha and Kansas City trestles were hiii1' to h"ld the tracks above the eurginn I flreH that bulled Ihe Nebraska meadowa H trains were made up to teat the track hef re th4 I aft special waa allowed to Continue its journey. Fermiles at a stretch the watercame up to the tracks and flooded over them. No rock bedding could have lasted a minute before 'he rush of water. Houaca with the water half up to their windows were passed and entire cornfields, fences and roads were submerge d Families with s-acns full of household furniture rose from the flood stood stranded in the tind on the highest points or the roada as tie President 'a train passed by. At every dangerous point the Presi dent s consent was asked before the trip was Continued, Despite the precautions of the railroad officials and their asaur aires thai there was no danger it was the most thrilling ride the President has ever fcd in the hundred thousand miles of his travelling about the country since he has been in the White House. The deluge came when the President's tram was at Atchison. Kan. He was routed to Omaha via the Missouri Pacific a long the west bank of the Missouri Kiver. In a few minutes word was flashed to the train (hat communication was cut off in thai direction and the wires were heated up in an effort to find another route. The Burlington tracks on the cast side of the river wore swept away, ao they thought the Wabash to the north might he reached and Omaha made by a long de tour. There are three roads connecting with the Wahaah, the Burlington, the lireat Western and the Kock Island. One by one the connecting roads tele graphed that they were helpless. Then news came that the flood had washed out the tracks of tho Wabash. This de stroyed all hope of reaching Omaha by a rl rect route, and it was determined to head for St. Joseph. Mo . along the east de of the river and attemnt to find some , outlet from that citv to Omaha, thouah ', rn railroad man had anv substantial hope that a way could be found. Ihe pilot train that the Missouri Pacific operates ahead of the President's train a- sent out on this route an! the Taft t-pcrinl followed a block Irehind A cleared Mock was given the pilot engine and there was another block cleared behind the Tafl special so that the President was protected with three clear block. Switch- : men were Stationed at every switch alone the route. j About si x Miles north of Atchison is the village of Rmhville. so called because I it was founded years ago I reside the old I led of tho Missouri River near Ihe ru-he. of ihe river. The route of the train pMoed hy that town and over ihe old river bed. which ia low. flat and partially marsh land. Into the old river bed the water' had rushed and eaten away the ledding. Ahout a mile north of Rushville the land gave away entirely lieneath the tracks i lust as the pilot train passed over. They Ir.ed to cross back to intercept the Taft 1 special, but it was impossible. So theyl telegraphed the despatcher al Rushvilie and he caught the news just lwfore the headlight on the Taft special came into I sight. By that time the torrent had weakened , the tracks behind the train so badly that i' was not safe to attempt to return to Atchison. The Tafl special was ma rooned, and though the railroad men iiad t'imed heaven and earth they c mid not i move it. Tho pilot train rati on to St j loseph and work was at once begun i to patch up the tracks But it was II o clock before the special got under way All this -time the President and all in his car were asleep. The worry wis confined to tho day coach attached to the tram, in which the railroad officials rode w hen the President awoke n was nearly a o clock, and looking out of ihe window to see the Omaha yards he was greeted with tho cheers of the inhabitants of R lahville. who had climbed on lop of 'era box cars near by to get a slitnpse o) the President With a mighty rueful face Mr De Ber rardi. tho general superintendent of the Missouri Pacific, told the Presideni of the condition of affaiis. He said that tie eoijld not get under way much lfore noon, but that he would get nun to Omaha f evening if it were possible. i was jut s'r-ly possible, as it proved, and D" Ber- oardl tnade (rood his nromise 'h President remarked that h" had i "n ' "r ' 1 ' "1P "eginmng oi ine wook d long enough to know that when!'11 re,,,,ll in unsettled weather and gen- v -in us ,,p against It the beat thing to do "LflfilS iT fllfi l,,arl . . . , . practically all districts east of Ihe Rookv - -it down and wait He weni nut on Mountains.

I washed awav and the torrent flowed over i MX track so swiftly that it was impossible tn fill in temtorary bedding, A work train waa made up and sent ahead to the flooded track. In an hour a trestle hud been built beneath the track, Working in water that staggered them from their feet with ila swift rush, the i "Ctlon men placed huge rocks and oriM crossed ties for a trestle. The rails wore set on this Then the heaviest engine in the yards at Falls City was taken out and two cars hitched to it. This train was run over the tracka to toat them. The trip waa aafely made and the word sent b( It to the President's oar that the jouiney could le made with aafoty, though the situation was carefully ei plained to him and his consent was re quested lief ore it was attempted. For miles the train ran through a ri-er. The track had lieen jacked tip above the level of the water but the flood was rising and buried the rails before the train was across ihe lowland. The torrent swept through the rocks and ties and s?stnd at any minuto to threaten tho liaatily made trestle. Mr. Taft atood on the rear platform the whole way across. At every door of the Proaidential train the pas sengers hung out to watch tho slow prog ress. At one place where the water was rushing a foot over tho tracks the train came practically to a stop. It brought cold shivers to the tracks of many aboard the train to see the wheels halt and tho wator surge about Ihem. Tho engineer stuck to k snail's pace all the way across. Finally higher land was reached and tho train picked up time to Verdoo. Neb. t Verdon the Tafl apecial was halted op pool to 1 1 stranded show train packed tuafdj with showgirls, and the stress of the tnp through ihe flood waa broken like a bubble when tho girls were sighted. The dignity of the "immediate party" was shattered like glass. The Preaident oat on Ihe rear platform ar.ri laughed at the girls. When the President's train pulled out one girl ran after and shouted for the Preoident to throw her his hat for a souvenir. She ran until she struck a big puddle of mud and unset in the middle of it. The Presidential train pulled into Omaha at 7 o'clock. It was due hero at 'hli morning. The programme for to ,,a' wa destroyer! of course and all that Otnaha wiH see of Mr. Taft will be at an automobile ride to-morrow morning.

When Dr Alexander J. Mclvor-Tyndall. . preaident of tho Progressive New Thought I Society, had finished admitting last night that disembodied apirita might well lie ' interested In prlceflghts and baseball games if their tastes ran to thoae things before they passed over and that the contention of Heaven with nianos in it waa not at all ridiculous, he invited eight men and women to mount Ihe alage of Carnegie Lyceum to help him and to judge him as he experimented with his sublimi nal self. Six young men who were sitting in different parts of tho hall hopped up as one and climbed to the stage. A girl in a black and white sltpon coat and a brown felt hat followed Ihem and a young woman New Thought who was hat less and coat less followed her. Now if one of the committee would be so good as to blindfold him -in an ante room while another tapped somebody in the audience some woman the Doctor would descend from the platform blind folded and if everybody would kindly think hard of tlio woman who had been tapped, the Doctor would go to her and tap her too They did jusl aa Ihe Doctor asked them to. When the young man who had touched tho left shoulder of a woman on the centre aisle took the Doctor's hand to make the thought transference more com plete the psychic gentleman winced as if he had touched a live wire and whirled right about face. Then he crept down the aisle and waved his right hand until it fell softly on the shoulder of just the right woman. The New Thoughts clapped. They wereatill Isstter pleased when the perform ance was repelled 0X00 pt that this time the Doctor hunted for and found a pin that had been stuck in a fichu around another woman's hat. She als i h id a seat on the centre aisle. Then Dr. Mclvor-Tyndall demonstrated how man who could read other )ersons' thoughts could lie a great detective. A member of the committee went through the motions of cutting another member's throat with a penknife and hiding the body and the knife. Out of the anteroom came tho doctor, blindfolded this time with a black cloth instead of a red one. Ho roamed the stage and Ihe hall and the net result was the finding of one murderer, one corpse and one penknife and tho pantomimic reproduction of tho murder. "Oood. good." from tho Now Thoughts. Tho doctor was going right ahead to name throe hidden playing cards that he hadn't seen when there arose a young man in tho front row of the gallery who said: "Doctor, I don't doubt your honesty or tho honesty of the committee of course, hut I've travelled a good deal and I've just been talking to some frienda up hero and we don't see why you shouldn't come up here to lie blindfolded. Is that asking too much?" "Why whv. certainlr not." replied Dr. Mclvor-Tyndall. pulling the handker chief from his face. "That committee is honorable rou can toll it by their faces," cried a gray haired man in the gallery. "Let the demonstra tion go on." And a woman on the main floor said the sceptic who had spoken had not expressed the sentiment of the audience at all. She tslieved in Ihe doctor, she did. She made, seconded and put a motion that the audience deemed the doctor incapable of faking and that he could be blindfolded anywhere he chose to be, A division of sentiment was expressed bv upraised hands ll was finally agreed that the travelled sceptic should take a seat on the stage anrl set! what he could see Whereupon up spake New Thought lady who was clad in a gray sweater and earrings. Said she: "I have perfect confidence in vour methods and there's no peekhole back of the stage where you go to lie blind folded, is there The doubter, who had leached thel"f Tripoli on Saturday afternoon, and platform by this lime, begged every body s pardon. nut. said he, "I am now 37 years old. and I have been inter ested iii spiritualism since I was It. I have known John Slater and other mediums in fact. I've had so much to do with those people that my family think I'm bughouse. I honestly want to le convinced. If any one objects to my presence here I'll "go back to the gallery." "No. you're all right." sang out a New Thought or maybe he wasn't one. So Doubting Thomas blindfolded the doctor himself and the dictor proceeded to find the three hidden cards and an nounce what cards they were, just as he had promised There was a little em barrassment though, been us., whenever he was "warm" the woman in the gray sweater shouted "Ooodi very loudly and clapped her hands. Last of all the dootor tried to declare tho number of a watch which he had not seen, but after puzzling and puzzling as he stood there with eyes bandaged, he said: "Some one must be working against me I can't get the impression, though for a second T thought I had it. 1 am very tired. Our next meeting will Ue - " The sceptic grinned. Part of what the doctor said in the lecture that preceded the demonstration waa that bad people are not transformed into angels of go Kiodness when they pass; 2 iinr i. i..n,., h- iLTk i over and that "toe liar is telling Ihe truth tho best he knows how." -He also said that once he had a newspaper friend who in turn had a friend who died of drink A I -I . . I I , 1 1 Ann mai irienu who lOU pussisi iivpi kept trying to persuade the newspaper man to drink and drink until at last the newspaper man not only freed himself from the temptation, "but also freed the enslaved one on Ihe olher side."

Patriotism perhaps is responsible for the prevarication of the Roman press which announced this morn ing a long series of naval victories which surprised even the moot excited popular imagination The Italians, however, ac cepted the "news" as matter of fact and with true Italian pride. Since the Tripoli to Malta cable is in the hands of the Italians reliable informa tion as to events on the North African coast is lacking. The only positive facta are that the Turks have changed tactics, abandoned Tripoli and departed into the interior, where they intend lo remain pending the arrival of reenforcements. and that the Italians are now occupying Tripoli. The Italians who have landed are al ready showing anxiety lest the Turks swoop down upon them. To date the Italians have sunk four Turkish cruisers and five destroyers, in cluding the Hamidieh. AlpagOt and Tara blony Thea vessels were unaware thai warhadleen declared. and it isoonsidered by many that the Italian attack on them was an act of piracy.

J This is a sporting proposition of five to two on the Derby, and we first propose to tell you how it came to a head. t We bought the bodies of these hats from the largest manufacturing retailer of 5.00 hats in this country. And we bought them at a bar gain, just because they happened to run a little lighter than the regula tion run of hats produced by this particular maker. J Now, nothing is too light for us in a Derby hat. We are eternally looking to devise ways and means of lightening men's cranial burdens, and the lighter the Derby the happier are we. It struck us as a singular circumstance, therefore, that a manufacturer should practically pay us to take the very thing we are always looking fori J Well, Sir, to cut the story short, we have blocked these 5.00 Derbies in seven of the smartest models and by smartest we mean those exclu sive shapes which fulfill the requirements of style, without the freakish tendencies of most so-called good hat styles. J Finally, we have marked these 5.00 hats at . 95, just because they are not so heavy as tbej were intended to be! Which, by the way, is a classic in the humor of hatdom. In all, there are 1,500 of these hats. Not a flaw or an imperfection in one of them. And every single hat in the lot looks just as much like five dollars as it is physically possible for a Derby hat to look.

"We stand at the juncture of two eras of Irish history," said the speaker. "Much of Paine Us work has borne fruit. The Irish struggle for home rule has already advanced beyond the stage at which Pamell left it. Part of the work of the present leexdera has been to break up the power of the House of Lords, which no longer blocks the way. Next year, when home rule has passed the House of Commons, wo shall know that it means the certain passage of the law within a short specified time." Mr. Redmond concluded with a glowing tribute to Parnell's work and his char acter. He said that the proudest moment of his own life was in giving to the citizens of Dublin a noble monument, the work of the greatest American sculptor of his day, himself the eon or an Irish motner, to the memory of the greatest son of Ireland since tne day nf Hugh O'Neill.

Cherry HIII Character Dies, as He Had Lived, t nfortunate. - Cherry Hill last night lost a human landmark and the hill hoodlums a butt for persecution in the person of William Stratton Stretch Stratton to tho pub lic of the hill, because he was heavy and lengthy and toggle jointed. Stretch went up as usual to the roof of 23 Cherry street, where for years he haa slept through all weathers in the lee of a chim ney; but he was less swift than usual in puzzling his way up the stairs and did not have his ancient luck in avoiding the edges of the roof and presently ts found dead five stories below in a yard. Stretch professed to he a laborer. Nobody ever saw him at it and ho might have been called a laborer emeritus if the hill had exorcised its vocabulary He was called oodles of other things and was showered with sticks and stone. His cplhes had long since lost pretence lo form and had become a plumage of lags and tatters which covered him. His eyes held the bleary wiatfulness that comes from years of much alcohol As he was onlv '.'4 the policemen of the district figmed that he must have taken lo the alcohol in babyhood. Stretch had big club lingered hands that were always in his way and a grin to take tho place of conversation. JBBSBV CITY OMIEES. Names and Vote of the Winners at Re publican Primaries.
