The river is still on the rampage. The
sudden rise is not the annual summer rise
from melted snow as many seem to think,
but is solely caused by the recent rains
along its course. The water is over the
banks on the south side and the bottoms
are partly covered with water. The
breakwater has been partly washed away,
and portions of the wreck were carried
with such force by the current as to do
Berious damage to the south end of the
bridge.
DECORATION DAY.
In accordance with the general custom
throughout the country Dodge City laid
everything aside, and made her obeisance
to the most cherished custom of the Amer
ican people. In no other country on
earth, can be found the same generous
feeling between parties separated by
their fealty to antagonistic principles,
such tendency to overlook and forget
wrongs, ana sucn natural ana unconven
al expressions of feelings of this character
that is to be so generally found in all sec
tions of ours. It is on an occasion of
this kind that we have an adequate re
alization of the greatness of this country.
This union in the spirit of the people in a
country of such extent has no precedent
in history. On an occasion of a similar
characterin Ireland or Scotland, the En
glishman, who is related by the same re
ligion and the same language, remains in
his factory; the Swiss go on making
clocks; the Dutch go on making cheese,
where else can be found a continent whose
people are linked together in their hopes
and their sympathies, and whose hearts
unite in the observance of a national cere
mony, "With common grief if it be sad,
and common joy if it be glad."
On Sunday afternoon, May 29th, the
Lewis Post of the G. A. R., atteded by a
large concourse of citizens, assembled at
McCarty's Opera House, where Rev. G.
Lowther, assisted by the other ministers
of the city, preached the memorial ser
mon. It is not thought necessary to com
ment on remarks of a speaker so well
known in this community as Mr. Low
ther. The sermon could not be other
than satisfactory to all present.
The posjoffice and business houses
closed Monday forenoon and remained
closed until the conclusion of the cere
monies. Early in the day people came in
from the country adjacent, and the streets
had a very animated appearance. At
three o'clock the Post of the G. A. R.,
marched to the cemetery, followed by
the Sons of Veterans and a large number
of citizens in carriages and
on foot. On arrival at the
cemetery a circle was formed, consisting
of twenty little flower girls tastefully
dressed in white. Ranged in a circle
about them was the Lewis Post of the G.
A. It. with the Sons of Veterans, while the
spectators formed a still larger ring on
the outside. A prayer was offered by
the Chaplain, Rev. N. G. Collins which
was followed by a short address from H.
Juneau, the Post Commander. After the
reading of the proclamation by Adjutant
N. P. Laughton, Professor Aikcns read,
in a very impressive manner, a beautiful
poem composed in 1884 by Lou Hoding,
which is given below.
THE DRUM.
LOX HODIXO.
o
Down the peaceful northern volley
Swept the sound of war's alarms.
Bidding citizens to rally
Calling quiet men to arms
And the spirit of the battle,
Of the battle soon to come,
Was awakened by the rattle
Of the cymbal and the drum.
Farmers, from their their toil at tillage,
Hearing what the Nation crated,
With the workmen from the village,
Rallied where the banner waved
Rallied with n true dcotion,
Mingling voices till the hum
Of an annimatcd ocean
Rose around the rolling drum.
'Neath the banner waging proudly
Did the young musicians play,
And the music echoed loudly
As the soldiers march away ;
For the County, as commander,
Bade the friends of Freedom come.
And the step of each defender
Timed the tapping of the drum.
Then the years of horror followed
Face to face the armies stood
Rifles rang and cannons bellowed
Earth was moist with human blood !
Then the sweet word Peace was spoken,
(Ah, it was not heard by some!)
And the columns, seared and broken.
Homeward marched the flag and drum.
Time has flown since those days stormy
Twenty years hove passed away --
And the ranks of that Grand Army
Thinner grew day after day !
Soon the comrads who arc sleeping
Will outnumber those that come
With the floral tributes, keeping
Step nnto the muffled drum.
Later still, in all the Nation
There will be a feeble few
At each annual decoration
Few who wore the Union blue
And when the last old vct'ran slumbers,
When mortality is dumb,
May they wake to sweeter numbers
Than the rolling of the drum !
At the conclusion of the poem a
guard was formed around the flower girls
who then proceeded to sprinkle boquets
of flowers, those emblems of love, over
the graves of the dead. The graves of
the soldiers were marked with flags, and
no grave was deemed too humble to mer
it these loving attentions. One of the
most touching incidents of the day was
the visit of these little emmissaries of
love and peace to the potter's field, where
there were several graves of unknown
soldiers. You know not what a tender
service you may have performed by this
act. It may be that you have unknow
ingly performed an act that others have
longed for years to do. It may be that if
the whereabouts of the unknown sol
dier's grave were known, "he would
sleep to-night amid a wilderness of flow
ers." or yet it may be that you have per
formed the first and last christian service
over the abandoned body of his soul.
The firing of salutes closed the solemn
exercises of the daj
While riding across the country one
day this week, we were very agreeably
surprised at the forward condition of the
crops. Corn, potatoes and all kinds of
gardens truck were looking well. The
best crop we saw was a patch of potatoes
that had been mulched. These were in
fine condition, showing a strong and rap
id growth. Bucklin Standard.
Wc are making farm loans at very low
rates, and there is no delay in negotiating
the same. The money is always ready,

WE REPEAT.
Last week we stated that Dodge City
was in the incipient stages of a real estate
boom. We repeat the statement this
week, and we are willing to rise or fall
on the result Of eur prediction. This real
estate cyclone will strike within the next
two month's time.
These rising inflections are seen in the
embryo enterprises under progress.
The location of the Presbyterian col
lege. The building of the A. T. & S. F. R.
R. round house and machine shops.
The establishment of the Forestry Sta
tion. The building of the Denver, Memphis
& Atlantic R. R.
The building of the Wichita & Western
R. R.
These and other enterprises are stimu
lating the real estate pulse, and the won
derful activity is nigh at hand. We ad
vise our real estate dealers and holders to
remain firm. The boom is coming.
SOUIjE COIiliEGE.
The Presbvterian collesre is named
Soule, after its principal benefactor, Mr.
Soule contributing $50,000 towards the
erection of the building and the endow
ment fund. The committee on location
were in Dodge Citv last week, and chang
ed the college site from the east half to
the west half of the southeast quarter of
section 14, townhsip 26, range 25. The
charter has been procured, and the direc
tors for the first year are named as fol
lows: M. W. Sutton, J. W. Gilbert,
R. M. Wright, S. Mullendore and W. C.
Shinn.
DRY FARMING.
The Iowa State Agricultural College
raised fifty bushels of corn per acre last
year on the College farm, though it had
no rain on the crop for ninety days. They
simply kept the ground stirred so that
the fine loose dirt served as a mulch and
kept the moisture below from evaporat
ing. That is our theory exactly. We
hope all our farmers hereabouts will try
the same plan this year if it should turn
dry. Garden City Sentinel.
The editor of the Sentinel doesn't know
a grubbing hoe from a pitch fork, nor a
threshing machine from a smut mill, and
yet he pretends to know something about
"dry farming." Wc guess the farming
he knows about is dry, sure enough.
liTTCKY DODGE!
The millionaire, Soule, of Hop bitters
fame, has recently invested in Dodge
City to the amount of over a hundred
thousand dollars. Mr. Soule is the long
headed gentleman who put his fist into
his jeans and built the great irrigating
ditch. There's a man who has faith in
southwestern Kansas, and who also, sees
a bright future for the reformed "wicked
city of the plains." Dodge may congrat
ulate herself, because the presence of
such great financiers with their money
and enterprise will do a great deal to
ward establishing her upon the high road
towards a great city. Then if she suc
ceeds in getting the land office, won't we
wish we'd secured a corner lot before the
advance? Fowler Graphic.
FUIili OF WHISKY.
The Garden City Sentinel speaks of the
"hard cider" in that city, as follows:
Rumor says an article called hard cider
is being dispensed in this city, which an
swers the purpose just as well as mhisky.
Of course the drug stores are blamed for
any little irregularities resulting in a
drunk, but if they are not guilty the
blame should be placed where it properly
belongs.
THE STORM.
Larncd Chronoscope, 27th.
The effect of the storm Tuesday night
seems to be wide-reaching. It was more
severe west of here, and particularly so
on the old Paul Curlett farm, eight miles
west of Lamed, now owned by Perry Ro
ger. The storm came tip from the north
west, and it hailed ten minntcs before it
rained a drop. The hailstones were from
the size of a walnut to as large as the fist.
The swath cut by the hail was about 600
yards wide, and Mr. Reger could not say
how long before reaching him, but its vi
olence was spent about 600 rods south
east of his house. He had in the ground
200 acres of grain, consisting of corn, wheat
oats, potatoes, flax and castor beans, all
but the wheat being in excellent condition,
and when the hail ceased every vestage of
vegetation had disappeared. His house
was almost split to pieees by the hail.
Five window shutters were split into
tooth-picks and every pane of glass knock
ed from the windows. The shingles on the
north side of the house were split into
kindling wood. The fine large trees on his
timber claim were stripped of their leaves,
branches broken off, and the bark chip
ped from the trunks, so that they will
hardly live. His cattle broke from the
corral, and drifted before the storm. At
four o'clock on Wednesdajr atternoon,
hailstones as big as walnuts were picked
up from sheltered places, and when he
attempted to cross a draw full of water,
at ten o'clock in the morning, the hail
stones were floating like slush ice on the
surface so thick that his horse didn't like
to cross. Jack rabbits, birds and frogs
lie thick over the ground, where they
were killed by the hail. After the storm
was over the hail lay ten inches deep all
over the ground. His land was cultivat
ed to a high degree and as smooth as a
floor before the storm, and now it is full
of holes, just as though thousands of cat
tle had been driven over the soft ground
and left hoof dents. Mr. Reger says he
has seen many severe storms in his life,
but never anything to compare with this.
There was but little wind and scarcely
any lightning or thunder till after the
storm had passed over and come back,
then there was considerable electrical dis
turbance. If there were others injured by the
storm we would like to hear from them.
Loans on city houses and lots at most
reasonable rates are made by Sherwood

"Rainfall. During the eek the rain
fall has been slightly in e3CeS3 of tnc
average in the cotton regions fro Texas
eastward to Georgia and generally n
New England, New York, Pennsylvania
and Virginia. Frequent showers occur
red in the corn and wheat regions, where
the total rainfall for the week, although
well distributed was sb'ghtly below the
normal. Kansas has been favoured by
rainfall in excess of the normal, especial
ly in the western portions. Owing to the
favorable distribution of the rainfall the
seasonal deficiency of from ten to fifteen
inches appears as yet uninjurious in the
cotton region.
"General remarks. Throughout the
entire agricultural districts the weather
has proved especially favorable for grow
ing crops, and reports Surldav morning.

of rainfall and temperature yet contiuue,

Editor Dooge City Times,.
By your last issue I see that the ed
itor of the Garden City Herald wants the
word "hoom" changed to "inunda," for
the reason that the word "hoom" origi
nated in the lumber regions of the north
wests. The Herald man is mistaken.
The word "boom" was is use before lum
ber was cut in the northwest, and means
a floating obstruction put across a river
to catch all logs drifting down from the
creeks and streams into which the logs
are rolled, near the loging camps, and is
constructed of a series of logs held to
gether by heavy chains, and fasteded to
piers built across the river for said purpo
ses. Now I think that "boom" is the
proper word for Dodge City, as it is
catching the greater part of the capital
ists drifting westward, and building up a
business center like the boom held to
gether by large business interests, an chor
ed to large three and four story brick
business blocks, catching the wholesale
and retail trade for miles and miles around
now drifting to other places. "Inunda,"
snowed under or under the tide, may be
the proper words for Garden City, but
let us have Boosr. J. E. Z.
